2015 GRIDIRON PICK'EM - Week 1, FRIDAY deadline

Post by AGinNEIowa » August 15th, 2015, 12:42 pm

WELCOME BACK to Weekly Pick'em and the Who The HELL Cares Game!!!

Weekly Pick'em is 15 games each week - like Kick-Off Pick'em, mainly MWC and Top-25 games chosen by me, so there are sometimes games of my interest thrown in. Each week is open to anyone who's interested, entry can be made through GOOGLE DOCS (link will be provided each week) or you may reply to the weekly thread in The Quad Forum with your pick for who will win each game - straight-up winner, no spreads involved.
Weekly Pick'em games - and prior week results - are usually posted Sunday, and scores are tracked throughout the season. I post year-to-date standings each week as well. I allow for a missed - or throwaway - week, by excluding the lowest score in the final standings. About half way through the season, standings will be posted net of each participant's low scoring week.

The WTHCG is generally a lower division match-up but may include teams from the normal Pick'em parameters. This is a separate competition and these picks are not included in the regular weekly standings.

ENJOY THE GAMES!

Preferred Entry method - Enter your Picks on GOOGLE DOCS, WEEK 1 GAMES Doc

Secondary Entry method - reply to this thread with each game picked (either retype game # and team - or copy/paste the games and bold the winner - prefer bold, rather than just colors, easier to read).

WTHCG - NCAA DIVISION 3 has this week's match-up. Saint John Fisher College Cardinalsfinished 2014 with a 9-2 record and their 12th-consecutive postseason berth. The Cardinals enter 2015 ranked 19th in the D3Football.com Poll and return a big chunk of their offense with a 1,000 yard rusher and another RB which averaged 127 all-purpose yards per game plus two WR's who each had 600 receiving yards in 2014. They travel from Rochester, NY to Crestview Hills, KY to take on the Thomas More College Saints. The Saints are ranked #15 in the preseason poll, after their program's 19th winning season (out of 25 years of Football). The 2015 TM Saints team returns 19 starters from last year's 9-2 squad - including their QB, who threw for 2,235 yards. They replaced their Head Coach this off season, after Jim Hilvert left to coach at La Salle High School in Cincinnati, OH.

yes, picks can be change up until the stated deadline. If you change picks after initially submitted, please let me know, via PM on this site - so I am sure to get the changes into my scoring sheet.

K well I'm gonna be changing my mine today, just a heads up.

Also- in this thread, it says the 2nd tie breaker is OSU's rushing yards. But on the goole docs, it says it's passing yards.

Edit: Curious as to why the Usu game isn't included?

Also thanks for doing this! Way fun

I generally don't do FCS vs FBS games. But, you say - 3 of them this week - well, I expect those games to be much more closely contested than SUU at USU - and with our game being so early in the week - I just decided to leave it off, preferring to have the later deadline.

Google Docs is correct, and I'll fix this thread - it is passing yards. Thanks for pointing that out.

Also, to be clear - you are picking Ohio State to win, but your tiebreaker says Va Tech by 24. (Visitor winning is a negative number)

You keep using that word. I do not think that word means what you think it means.
