It's that time of year again when we roll out our FREE TideFans Pick'em Contest with weekly prizes!
1) You must pick all 16 games each week. We expanded to 16 games last year to make it easier to accomodate all SEC games and a few others that might be a little more difficult (or interesting) to pick.
2) All prizes will be awarded at the END of the season. This will make it easier on me to administrate. So, if you win week 1, your prize will be awarded at the end of the season. See the rules for more information.
3) The 2009 pickem season will be 16 weeks long. This will help accomodate the 923 meaningless bowl games that are now played.
1) Note that picks will not be updated immediately. Instead, I have to run a program that updates them about 1 time per day or every other day.
1a) If you entered picks before Saturday, check back on Friday or Saturday to make sure your picks were entered.
1b) Be sure to save a copy of the page that confirms your picks! (in your browser do something like FILE-->SAVE AS)
2) After week 1, if you have made picks in a previous week, your name will appear in the dropdown on the pick entry sheet. Until then, you have to click NEW and then enter your username.
3) DO NOT use your TideFans password.
4) You MUST be a registered member of TideFans to participate. Registration is free, so signup if you haven't already!
5) You can enter the contest at any week. Thus, if you miss out on week 1, feel free to enter week 2 and future weeks. The season prize is for the member with the most points at the end of the season, so you're probably never out of it if you miss a week...unless you're a terrible picker like me
Please let me know ASAP if you have any difficulties entering your picks. Make a post here and I (or a fellow member) can probably help you. Before asking a question please re-read this post! If you ask a question that is answered here, you'll most likely be referred back to the instructions anyway!
Please read the rules before entering the contest. Thanks & good luck!
NOTE: PICK AGAINST THE SPREAD! (Also, the HOME TEAM is on the RIGHT)
To make things easier on your humble publisher (THAT's ME!), all weekly prizes will be awarded at the END of the season instead of each week.

Several things to keep in mind:
Picks are against the spread
Only REGISTERED members are eligible to enter & win prizes
Use your TideFans member username as your username in the entry sheet
DO NOT use your TideFans password! However, use one that you can remember in future weeks!
Your picks will not show up immediately so please don't ask "Where are MY picks?" I will update the picks about once per day - usually at night.
NOTE: PICK AGAINST THE SPREAD!
