Just a reminder to set your picks. I just finished mine up.

Also, still open to anyone who wants to join. Probably the last day to sign up unless you want to be playing catch up all year.

Epic fail by me for Wisconsin and Pitt. Gonna have to hit the rest right...

HChu
08-30-2008, 02:59 PM
I didn't even notice there was a spread, so curse you Pitt, VT, and Wisconsin!

diabsoule
08-30-2008, 07:25 PM
Ah ****, there was a spread?

diabsoule
08-30-2008, 07:27 PM
After HChu pointed out there was a spread I have to give a stiff middle finger to Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, and Pittsburgh.

After HChu pointed out there was a spread I have to give a stiff middle finger to Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, and Pittsburgh.

I lost 27 points on those three games.

Hines
08-30-2008, 07:45 PM
Hopefully the games I lost points in (Wisky, Va Tech, Pittsburgh) I get back in Oklahoma and it seems like I have so far with their shalacking against Chattanoga.

I lost 30.

Lost 28 here, and Clemson will cost me some more. I suck at Pick'ems, lol.

M.O.T.H.
08-30-2008, 08:40 PM
Looks like a couple of guys didnt realize there were confidence points...I'll try to set it so, we can drop our worst week for those guys. If that is okay w/ everyone...I'm not even sure i can still do that, though.

Shane P. Hallam
08-30-2008, 08:41 PM
What happens for those guys then?

M.O.T.H.
08-30-2008, 08:43 PM
What happens for those guys then?

They're going to end the week w/ zero points. You can look at everyone's picks right now...Caddy and PF28 didnt do the confidence points. So, if i can change it to allow us to drop our lowest week score, they can drop that 0...or in Caddy's case 21 because, he did one. haha.

edit...CJSchneider is looking at zero also.

M.O.T.H.
08-30-2008, 08:54 PM
I really need Kansas to score another td and Auburn better not give up any points.

Shane P. Hallam
08-30-2008, 08:58 PM
I bet against Kansas myself.

SuperMcGee
08-30-2008, 11:14 PM
Looks like a couple of guys (Romo and cdub) also got the confidence points backwards.
Lucky for them, they both inadvertently had the max amount on ECU. It still clearly hurt them a bit as they're both behind the pack for those that assigned points.

Looks like I'm doing ok. Bowling Green and Florida Intl both worked out for me, not so much UL-Monroe. Minor points, but most games were that weren't the obvious ones with no line.
Hopefully Mizzou doesnt give up a TD+2 right here (which upon further thought wouldn't make any sense to do), and Washington finds a way to stay within two scores.

I realized that at about 2:00 this afternoon

M.O.T.H.
08-30-2008, 11:19 PM
It's all good...this week will be dropped for those that messed up. Each team's lowest score on the season will be dropped automatically.

HChu
08-31-2008, 12:06 AM
Despite, not knowing the spread was there. It looks like I shall be on top of the NFLDC pick 'em world! Ha-Ha!

M.O.T.H.
08-31-2008, 12:11 AM
Some of the scores are messed up right now. I know mine is lower than it should be, and they kept changing the Missouri/Illinois score...so yeah, hopefully that will all be fixed by tomorrow.

M.O.T.H.
08-31-2008, 12:52 PM
Yeah, they fixed the scores. PL is in 1st after the 1st week w/ 202 points.

Shane P. Hallam
08-31-2008, 01:12 PM
Well, I'm still in contention!

diabsoule
08-31-2008, 01:56 PM
I'm still in contention. I wish I would've looked to see if there was a spread.

Hines
08-31-2008, 02:23 PM
I dont know if I have 193 points or the 139 or so points.

Shane P. Hallam
08-31-2008, 02:29 PM
You have 193.

CJSchneider
08-31-2008, 04:11 PM
Why do I have 0 points? What did I forget to do?

Shane P. Hallam
08-31-2008, 04:18 PM
You forgot to set confidence points. Read the end of the first page.

CJSchneider
08-31-2008, 04:51 PM
I'm not seeing it now. Just have to make up for it through out the season.

P-L
08-31-2008, 06:18 PM
I had a great week. I missed on 6 of the games. I bet 1 point that Clemson would cover, 2 points that Illinois would cover (and I was so ******* close), 3 points that Hawaii could cover, 5 points on Virginia Tech, 7 on Wisconsin, and 11 on Pitt. I was soooo close to picking ECU and Akron to cover too. I got burned last year on the ECU/Tech game too. Can't complain too much though.

cdub11

i messed up on the confidence points and did it backward

M.O.T.H.

Diab and Island Boy have to make their picks yet.

Could be a rough week for some of us...there are some real tough ones on there.

HChu
09-05-2008, 08:53 PM
I basically picked most of the favorites to not cover the spread.

HChu
09-06-2008, 01:29 PM
Ohio is gonna earn me a big 17 points!

Shane P. Hallam
09-06-2008, 01:50 PM
I fail at this, lol.

P-L
09-06-2008, 01:57 PM

That's ballsy. I picked Ohio to cover as well, but I only put 2 points on them.

HChu
09-06-2008, 01:59 PM
That's ballsy. I picked Ohio to cover as well, but I only put 2 points on them.

I really thought it was gonna bite me in the ass come today, but it's gonna pay off unless Ohio St. finds a way to put 22 more points on the board.

Hines
09-06-2008, 02:00 PM
Hopefully I can earn a lot more points. This OSU game kind of killed me, but other then that, I think I will do pretty good.

princefielder28

I did the same thing

SuperMcGee
09-06-2008, 02:02 PM
I had 4 on Ohio, if we're all making ourselves known. That 17 is impressive, a lot of people had points like that against them.

HChu
09-06-2008, 02:06 PM
Hmm... it's saying that I put 18 confidence points on them. Even better!

diabsoule
09-06-2008, 02:35 PM
I ******* hate the spread. I have no ******* clue why I picked Ohio St. to cover the spread.

It looks like Southern Miss is going to cover and make me 4/4 so far.

M.O.T.H.

That one I just didn't see coming. I picked Tech w/ the spread and put 8 points on it.

How in the hell is Washington beating BYU?

Willingham is coaching for his job, and in Washington, they play VERY well.

I only have 19 points right now.

P-L
09-06-2008, 06:29 PM
I will never put any faith in BYU ever again. Seriously, I thought they were a lock to win by at least 10 points. If Kansas, Tech, and Miami cover I'll be in pretty good shape though.

M.O.T.H.
09-06-2008, 07:27 PM
Yeah, that Tech game isnt even played yet. lol. I should have known that one, pick em has been a little glitchy/sketchy thus far.

But anyway, I'm having a pretty bad day here. BYU and Wake killed me this week.

CJSchneider
09-06-2008, 07:59 PM
I suck at this, is the confidence points used to guage if they will cover the spread as well?

M.O.T.H.
09-06-2008, 09:11 PM
USF just blew it and cost me 13 points.

Even Urban Douchebag could not keep me from holding on to to the overall lead this week. I need to step it up next week.

Hines
09-07-2008, 08:49 AM
I dont get the points now. JB has more points then me, but I am in front of him. Why?

HChu

Because, your worst week is discarded...it will look a little weird in the beginning. Your best week is better than his best week, thus you are ahead.

Shane P. Hallam
09-07-2008, 01:03 PM
Just look at Group Points. That is all that matters.

cdub11
09-08-2008, 10:10 AM
i only missed 5 games this week, that first week killed me with the confidence points

HChu
09-13-2008, 09:13 PM
So...I only have 5 points so far today. I'm pretty much done for the year.

Shane P. Hallam
09-13-2008, 09:15 PM
It's all good. I'll likely end up in last myself, I have a below average week every week.

Hines
09-13-2008, 09:16 PM
Damn, I ******* sucked this week.

SuperMcGee
09-14-2008, 02:04 AM
It must've been a real bad week if I had the second best. I missed on 3 of my top 4 confidence points. But I guess I only missed one game with points 1-11 with a push on 12. Everyone went big on Georgia.

P-L
09-14-2008, 10:14 AM
Yeah, I was 1-3-1 in my top 5 confidence points picks. I was fourth this week. I think everyone just had a pretty bad week.

diabsoule
09-14-2008, 02:22 PM
I completely missed my picks this week.

SuperMcGee
09-20-2008, 10:26 PM

After the excellent start, I pissed down my leg these last two weeks. I still don't know how I put 15 points on Temple, when I meant to put them on Penn State. And seriously, what the hell was up with Toldeo playing as well as they did?

Hopefully by next week I can take over the lead.

Shane P. Hallam
09-28-2008, 11:10 AM
I had a horrendous week, but I'm still in 2nd, and technically have more points than first if I can stay consistent.

SuperMcGee
09-28-2008, 12:18 PM
I got 8 points outside of Utah (obvious no spread game) and South Florida and I moved into first. Outstanding.

Shane P. Hallam
10-04-2008, 03:22 PM
I moved into first with my skilled pick of Utah State!

I'm doing fairly well this week so far. If Ohio State comes through, I'll be looking pretty.

Shane P. Hallam

Just a matter of time! Huge week for me!

10-25-2008, 02:06 PM
Oh. My. God. I thought I put 20 points on Oklahoma to cover. Instead, I picked Kansas State. Here's hoping for KSU to get within 18.
