    Just finished the last login account. Everybody should now have an account that has asked (let me know if you haven't received the email or have any questions). I'll still setup last minute entrees this evening.

    rstrong - nice job on the website. When do you think you'll have scoring in place for the contest? I did your Big 10 contest and the one on intermat. I noticed a lot of people have the same, if not, very similar picks - definetely nice to have a 5th place for more differentiation. On the intermat contest, there are 35 people who picked the exact 10 wrestlers that I did, but not in the same order. Admittedly, I made some pretty safe picks, 7 number 1 seeds, and my three others were Quentin Wright, Tony Ramos and Matt Powless.

    Another fun contest that I've seen before, is to pick 10 guys to be your team at the NCAAs with the stipulation that you can only pick one #1 seed, one #2 seed and so forth until the 10th seed. You can also pick lower seeded and unseeded wrestlers without limit. Whatever team points your guys get during the tournament are given to "your" team. Does anyone know if such a contest is being done this year?

    Thanks chocell... but to be honest, I'm struggling with the point thing.

    If I used the B1G scoring, 16,12,10,9,7 pts for correct #1,2,3,4,5 - I'm not sure how to handle mis-placed picks. In other words, if you pick McD for #2 at 125 and he wins - do you get 12? Or if he places #3 - do you get 10. Or maybe I just assign a flat 5 pts to any wrestler who places 1-5 that you picked, but at the wrong place. That would at least give people credit for picking the right guys - but give a bunch more for proper placement.

    Anybody else want to weigh in on this one? (No pun intended)

    In fact - I think I'm going to start another thread quick... I've got 30 minutes to get this figured out.

    I had been considering a NCAA pool next... but I think I'll leave that to Whippet and a few other guys who are already hard at work putting pools together.

    Dumb luck .
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.
