Week One is in the books, and it's time for the next installment of the best Pick'Em contest in the webisphere. 10 For 10 roars into Week Two without crowning a champion in the weekly competition. The best entries from last week picked eight outright winners correctly, showing just how difficult the seemingly easy task is.
First things first, I need to send a giant thanks over to hookerhome for his assistance this week. HH has agreed to keep track of the scoring this season, a monumental task as last week we had 81 entries. HH will publish a FanPost each week with a summary of the results. Then in the contest post, I'll include a table of all the records.
Just find ten games on the schedule you feel confident in, and you hold the crown. It sounds simple, but last season it took until Week 10 to crown jstaubach with the '10 For 10' distinction. The competition didn't end there though, as each week's correct picks get added together, and a season long fight remains. So with only one week in the books, there's still plenty of time for first timers to jump in this week and still have a shot at the throne that BishopWest holds.
Here's the top group from last week. Starting next week it will be replaced by the season leaderboard.
Pick 10 games, pick the winner. That simple. Follow the jump for the contest rules, this week's game and the all important leaderboard.
1 - You must only pick 10 games. If you pick more than 10, I will score the first 10. If you pick less than 10, then you need more fingers to count on; all non-picks will be scored as wrong.
ii) You must make your entry as a reply to the post, not another comment. I will only go down the left margin when scoring. Anything indented will get no love here, playa.
B: You must include the entire matchup in your entry. Simply BOLD the team in the matchup you are picking to win. No lists of only the winners you pick. If you want me to take the time to score your entry, take the time to format it correctly. It's easy, just copy and paste the matchups from the post, then highlight your pick and hit the B button.
3. YOU MUST PREDICT A WINNER OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS GAME IN YOUR TEN PICKS. New rule for 2011 and front page status.
D - Hit the preview button, because once it's submitted, that's it- there's no turning back.
D v2.0 - Picks must be in before the early games of Sunday kickoff. No exceptions. If you're including Thursday night's game in your picks but not ready to pick Sunday's game, post 'THURSDAY GAME ONLY' in your subject line.
