    Some of you may remember last years contest and the great prizes offered to the winners. TideFans.com is once again willing to put up prizes for the persons who show the highest College Football IQ. Here's how it works -

    The total prize money depends on the number of people that enter. BamaNation is offering $2 for every person that enters up to $600 total purse with the prize breakdown as follows:

    1st - 50% of purse
    2nd - 25% of purse
    3rd - 15% of purse
    4th - 10% of purse

    *Please only one entry per person*

    *All Prizes Will Be Given In The Form Of A Gift Certificate To The TideFans.com Store*

    *Gift Certificates Will Be E-mailed To The Winners After The Bowl Season Concludes*

    Last years winners can tell you how much fun it was to purchase the latest and greatest Bama Gear at the TideFans.com Store.

    Just like last years contest the last place finisher will take home a $25.00 TideFans.com Gift Certificate. So don't give up if you start out slow.

    As soon as the Bowl Matchups are announced a link to the contest will be provided. Be sure to watch this board for updates. This years pick-em will be against the spread. Confidence points tend to confuse some players so we'll keep it simple.

    ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLL TIDE ROLLLLL

    Maybe one of the kind staff members could fix the thread title for me? My keyboard is acting up. Thanks
    Game is set for Confidence Points. Is that correct? I hope so. I hate the spread. Probably the only reason i don't gamble on football.

    Yes Sir, the picks are set for confidence points. I personaly like this format better than the spread. In the past we've had some confusion with players using the confidence points system. Click the "how to play" tab at the top of your pick distribution page for the rules.

    The deadline for submitting a pick for a particular game is five (5) minutes before the scheduled start of that game. This may differ from the actual start time due to the length of pre-game activities. Once this deadline passes, your pick to win the game and the confidence points assigned to that pick are locked.

    Scores cannot be added or adjusted retroactively for players who joined up late or failed to submit a pick for a particular game.

    The winner will get 50% of the total purse. The total purse is equal to the number of players times $2.00 per player. With a maximum total purse of $600.00

    Right now we have 112 players signed up.

    $2.00 x 112 = $224.00

    As it stands now the winner will get a $112.00 gift certificate to the TideFans.com Store. There's lots of very cool Bama Gear there to choose from.

    We still have a few days before the first game kicks off so there's still time for more players to sign up and increase the payout.
