Yes, kids, it's time for the 2nd Annual WHRG Pigskin Prognostication Pickoff! Rules are slightly changed this year, in order to make my accounting easier. Here dey be.
1 - You must pick a minimum of 100 total games, NCAA Division I-A, or NFL, by the end of the regular seasons. Preseason NFL games DO NOT COUNT.
2 - Picks include only the Over/Under and/or the spread for a particular game. Example - picking UGA -2 versus Yech last year, and picking the Under on an O/U of 30 counts as two picks. You do not have to pick both betting items per game.
3 - Scoring this year is slightly changed. We will keep track of wins, losses, and pushes this time around. Pushes will neither help nor hurt you, except in the case of the ultimate tiebreaker, detailed below.
4 - Winner will be declared to be the person who picks the highest number of winning games, minimum 100, with most games picked being the first tiebreaker, and fewest pushes being the second. Example: paT picks 100 games, goes 30-60-10. SAWB picks 103 games, goes 31-61-11, SAWB would win for the season, based on more games picked.
5 - You must select your slate of games every week from a reputable oddsmaker. I'm personally partial to Pinnacle, but you're free to use anyone that I can reasonably look up the spreads from.
6 - You must post your picks for any games BEFORE the kickoff time, i.e. no picking UGA to cover the 7 on OKST AFTER they go up 21 in the first quarter.

This contest is open to anyone with a pulse, and at least a passing interest in either college or pro football. Post below with your picks for the first week of College Feetball. The winner of this shindig this year will win a shiny paragraph of effusive praise from our patented "Effusive Praise Machine(tm)".
