Year 4: Hoops Pickems
« on: October 04, 2013, 11:58:10 AM »
Rules:

1. Picks must be in before the start of the game. I have to be more strict on this game than football because scoring is much more prevalent in hoops.

2. Trash talk is openly welcomed and encouraged

3. Every game is worth one point as we could be picking from over 200 games this season

4. If there are any games you feel should be added, let me know and I will see what I can do to add. This means I may not see it in time to add it, but will certainly do everything I can to add it.

5. Conference champs picks are good only for the #1 seed in the conference tourney.

6. Before football season is over, it will be a shot in the dark or the best games. I am also running a football pickems game. After football, I will be more in tune with basketball.

7. This will cover every single conference in America. The little conferences will have the top two teams mostly highlighted.

8. Look at this as an opportunity to learn about potential upsets in March.

9. The season opens up in a month.

10. Last year coach and Blitz assisted me in the game. Thus they will be allowed to do as time permits for them, if they join in the game.

11. I will try to avid using as many abbreviations for not as widely known schools.

12. Conference bonus picks must be in by the 28th of December. They can be posted whenever before that moment in time.

13. All adjusted picks must be posted in a new post. Any modified posts after the first game is played is vacated for that week. This alleviates any possibilities of cheating to increase your score.

14. All scores will go alphabetical if there is a tie. If two players have the same "wins", but different "losses", the player with the least amount of losses goes first.

WELCOME EVERYONE!!!

Also, you need to add (to the rules) that original picks posts can't be modified once the first game of that week starts. If someone wants to change a pick, do it in a new post. That way, there is no possible way for someone to cheat.

Thanks.

Also, if all of those involved let me know who their favorite team is, I'll be sure to find the most competitive game in my opinion, and will add it. If you're an idiot like me that likes a loser team, they aren't going to get the game against the tops of the conference.

Well good sir, its like I said, I don't know who is good and who is bad. Davidson was in the tourney last year and either went to the second weekend or scared the snot out of someone in second round to get to the second weekend.

You're right, they scared the snot out of Marquette in the 1st round, 59-58
My memory is not that good, I had to look it up.

But this game is in Durham, in the house that the rat built. They have no chance.

More than likely they don't and will prove that it was a dumb pick.

I'm sure the Cuse will hit the pick-ems anyway, but that is the team I like. New back court this year, should be entertaining.

11. Duh Nuts = Michigan's arch rival

13. Remember I'm a Michigan fan and will treat my arch rival as such. They will never get their name posted as its officially known. This will be the only school that gets this treatment. I know I shouldn't do this, but I'm a classless jerk.

Throw in a Toledo game now and then if they're worth anything.  Thanks.
