It Has Begun - The Official 2019 College/Pro Pick'em Thread
« on: August 26, 2019, 11:04:04 AM »
"IT HAS BEGUN" (Imagine Shang Tsung Mortal Kombat gif here)

Welcome back to year two, and if you're new, welcome here as well! This will be the official thread for picks this season. The rules:

1. Each week will be a selection of 10 games, evenly split between college and pro. In weeks when one or the other is not in session, 10 games will made available from the active league.

2. Each game will be worth one point, with the exception of the Spotlight Game, which will be worth two points.

3. Picks must be highlighted in bold. Picks for each game are due before the kickoff of that game. Picks can also be changed up until that time as well. Not really worried about any of you going back and changing picks, so cheers to all of you.  :thumbsup:

4. I will update scores each week...but I am human and make mistakes from time to time, so if your score and mine doesn't match let me know. Official standings will also be updated in this first post.

5. First tiebreaker is percentage of picks made correctly. Second tiebreaker is score adjusted without the extra spotlight game point. 

6. Winner will receive a PS4/XB1/Switch game of their choice (standard edition, nothing super rare either lol).

Questions? Concerns? Comments? Now's the time to ask.

Good luck!

“But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.” - Martin Luther King, Jr
