    Default It's Back ! NCAA Football Pick'em Pool V.2009

    Rules are simple for you new comers. Each week 10 games are listed. Ignore the point spread, just pick the winner of each game. Sounds simple doesn't it. Hah ! If you can get 60% of the Div 1 games correct you'll be among the leaders. I'll come up with some kind prizses for the Champ(s) (if anyone can beat me this year ).

    Scoring is simple, 1 point for picking the winner of 9 games each week. The 10th game, the bonus game, carries 5 points for a total 14 possible points each week. Each week there is a "Jimmy the Greek of the Week" champ.
    S/He that accummulates the most points at the end of the regular season (a/k/a Army v Navy) will be declared the Pick'em Season Champ.
    S/He that accummulates the most points at the end of the Bowl games (regular season included) is declared the National Pick'em Champ. (Returning Champs include CB, Red Viking (2x) and RYou.

    Want bonus points ? Give me your picks for the following by September 12.

    10 points - pick the National Champs (winner of the BCS Bowl game)
    10 points - pick the Heisman Trophy Winner
    10 points - pick the Butkus Award winner
    (Be wise about your picks, they have decided the Season Champ in 3 of the past 4 years)

    Bowl Games will be worth 5 points each.
    Each of the BCS games will carry 10 points for the winner.

    Here are the week 1 games. Just reply to this post with the names of the the winner of each game.

    Pick for Week 1 are due no later than 12:00 PM eastern on September 3.

    Oregon at Boise State

    September 5

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    I wanted one that was really tough to pick, at least I thought it would be a toughy, but by the response so far, maybe not. Chances are, if had gone Nagurski, everyone that picked Spikes, would still have picked Spikes. Besides, I'm partial to L'Backers. Personally, I think Husker Du has the inside track on this one.
