Thread: MatPool.com - website for Big 10 picks

    Default MatPool.com - website for Big 10 picks

    I'm 90% done setting up MatPool.com for entering B1G conference tournament picks. (I haven't started on the results part yet - just the entering of picks for now.)

    Right now I'm looking for ideas on how to do scoring. Any ideas?

    The way it's currently setup is that each person picks the Top 8 in each weight class, and eveybody can see each others picks. I could easily change it so you can only see your own until a cutoff date/time... I'm not sure which is better. I have no idea how it should be scored.

    (Also, later, I'll be looking for volunteers to test it out... I'm thinking by the end of this week. I'll post again when I'm ready for volunteers. I need to hurry it along and I'm obviously on a tight schedule.)

    You could just use my NCAA Pickem spreadsheet and not have to fool with it.

    The only things you would need to do is:

    1. Enter the contestants.
    2. Enter their picks on their contestant sheet.
    3. Enter the place winners.

    The spreadsheet does everything else. Scores 8 places and bonus points.

    That would be great - sounds like you've already spent quite a bit of time on it. If you could email me a copy of the spreadsheet I'd be sure to give you credit on the web site for developing the scoring system (assuming I have enough time to get it working on the web site, that is.) You put enough work into it that you should be recognized for it.

    I'll PM you my email address if you're in.

    Thanks for the post amlan74. You, and all WrestlingTalk people are in. I appreciate the enthusiasm. (I think of it like the NWCA Nat Duals - it may not be perfect, but at least I'm trying to get it off the ground. I'll do the best I can.)

    Top 8 in a field that small is a bit much i think. Maybe 4 or 5 would be a bit better.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I will help test it when you are ready. If you are using my spreadsheet to score it, it is very simple to change the scoring for places.
