Okay, Week #1 is now here. I'm doing things pretty much the same as last year. Every week, the new games will be posted sometime early Sunday mornings. Previous week results and standings will also be posted on Sunday mornings (sometimes earlier if possible).
In order to be in the contest, you MUST play in week #1. This contest takes many hours a week and in an effort to keep from driving myself crazy, I am not going to accept new entries after the first week is in the books. In addition, if you MISS picking a week, you will get a zero score for that week and can continue playing, HOWEVER, if you miss picking a second time, you are out of the contest.
There will be 25 games posted each week. I will try to use all teams from southeast Ohio every week, but some teams may be left out from time to time. Picks are due in by 6 pm on Friday evening. This is an hour later than last years deadline. Please copy and paste the games the way I have them typed and just delete the team you are NOT picking.
The contest will be a running total of wins and losses for the year. Everyone's records will be kept through the 10 week regular season and the top 32 pickers in the standing after week #10 will move on to the playoffs. Each week of the playoffs, half of the field will be eliminated. I will post more about the playoff format in October.
Good luck to everyone. Remember, copy and paste, then delete the team you do not want and entries will be LOCKED Friday at 6 pm
