Pick'em peeps, welcome back or welcome in (whichever applies).
After our card format poll, the Google Doc card won by a landslide. That means I've mothballed the old Excel format and I'll be adding features/functionality on the fly this year. But from a game picking perspective, things are the same.
I'll post an official league rules post soon. In the mean time, here are some Pick'em card notes:
- NCAA games are picked against the spread (NFL will be straight up).
- Remember to check for bonus questions. I give away bonus points for answers, but these points DO NOT count toward your overall pickem score. To win the pickem contest, you have to have picked the most games right. Simple.
- For those that have played before, Best Bets are out for now. There is not an easy way to incorporate them into the Google Doc card.
- All picks are due before the kickoff of the first game. However, if you forget, still send me the card dude. I'll give you credit for any game kicking off after I receive your picks. Early bird bonus points (sending your card in early) will not be given out at the moment.
If any of you know someone who may want to play, send them the link to the blog post or the card. Filling out the card is every person's official commitment. We'll talk entry fees in the next few weeks.
Without further ado, here it is... the first card of the 2009 football season and a jump into a whole new world of formatting for me and filling out your cards from your iPhones for (some of) you.

NOTE: We have Thursday games on the card this week. This means you need to get your picks in before Thursday night at 6PM Central. Again, if you are late, you can still send me your card... you'll just forfeit any games that kicked off before you submitted the form.
