2018 GRIDIRON PICK'EM - Week 1, FRIDAY 8/31 deadline

Post by AGinNEIowa » August 15th, 2018, 9:32 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 Entry Sheet

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 1 FCS has this week's match-up, an OCC match-up of Pennsylvania teams. The Saint Francis of PA Red Storm are expected to be led by Senior Receiver Kamron Lewis (from Fresno, CA) who has been voted as a Preseason All-American for the third straight year, and is on the Walter Payton Award Watch List. Last year he caught 65 passes for 909 yards and caught a TD pass in 5 of the Red Flash's first 6 games. The Red Flash went 5-6 in 2017. The Lehigh Mountain Hawks are expected to be led by senior running back Dominick Bragalone (from South Williamsport, PA) who has also been voted as a Preseason All-American. This is his second year as a preseason AA honoree, following a Junior season which saw him lead the FCS in rushing yards, rushing TD's, total TD's, and scoring. The Mountain Hawks went 5-7 in 2017.

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