P-F12: Week 1 Card

The Week 1 NCAA card is now live. Let's get it started like a pop rap radio edit, y'all!

The general due date for each week's card is before the kickoff the first game, which in this case means 9/1/12 8:00AM Central (Dublin game, slainte!)

I know late picks happen, and I'll always take any pick that gets to me before the kickoff of a game. All your picks are time-stamped by the Google form, so don't even try with the "my iPhone lost my picks" excuse. Whatever Google says goes.

Also, I've added the ability for you to send partial cards or edits to you picks. If you fill out the form a second time, just send the picks you want to change and it will automatically be changed online. Note, the form won't stop you from making late picks or cheating, but I'll audit everything at the end of the week.

The Links:
WEEK 1 CARD LINK

WEEK 1 PRINTABLE CARD LINK (for those that like to do your picks on paper first)

Quick Refresher:

  • NCAA games are picked against the spread (NFL will be straight up).
  • The picks are made using a Google Doc form. It is so awesome that you can even do it from your wireless pocket phone.
  • 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.
  • A pick for any game is technically due BEFORE the kickoff of that game. Bribes are accepted. No cheating.
  • If you have submitted your picks and want to change anything, you can:
    • Fill out the form again, but only pick the game(s) you want to change You don't have to fill out the entire card to just change a few picks.
    • Email me with your change (commish@pickem-football.com)
    • Text me with you change (I'll email you my phone number)
  • If you forget your picks altogether, you won't get a zero for the week. Instead, you'll get the score of whoever was the lowest scoring picker for that week.
If any of you know someone who may want to play, send them the link to the blog post or the card link. Filling out the card is every person's official commitment. We'll talk entry fees ($25) in the next few weeks. 

Any other questions?
