2020 Tidefans Pickem Pool
Week 10
DEADLINE: Saturday, 11/07 @ 11am CT

Week 10
has 14 games to pick with some pretty interesting spreads. Have fun!

Click to enter your Week 10 picks

HOW TO ENTER:
  • You must be logged in to enter.
  • Direct Link to the Week 10 pool (there is also direct link to the 2020 CFB Regular Season Pickem pool in the PICKEM dropdown on the menu bar)
  • Click on the red "JOIN POOL" button on the top right side bar or "MANAGE PICKS" if you've entered the pool in a previous week of the 2020 season.
  • Pick all of your picks and the two tiebreakers.
  • For tiebreakers, enter the # of YARDS for each one. Read carefully.
  • You can change your Picks at any point up until the deadline (typically on Saturday, 11am CT) at which point the week's picks will be locked and you can't make any new picks or change any picks.
  • "MANAGE YOUR PICKS" prior to the deadline by clicking the red "MANAGE YOUR PICKS" button on the top right side bar.
RULES
  • You must be logged in to enter.
  • There is no cost to enter.
  • ALL picks must be entered before the deadline
  • There are at least 10 picks each week. Some weeks we may have more but never less (unless there are not enough games with odds available)
  • There are 2 tiebreakers each week. One is the top rushing yards by a player in the SEC for that week and the other is the top passing yards by any D1 (FBS) player for the week. ENTER THE # OF YARDS! (If there is not an SEC game that week, the tiebreaker will be the second one only)
  • Each game is worth 1 point if you win the pick (you are picking against the spread)
  • If a game is not played due to COVID-19 or weather or for any other reason, that game will be considered a 0-0 tie with no winners.
  • Remember: Picks are against the spread. Picking against the spread example:
    • Kudzu University is playing Weedkiller College
    • Kudzu U. has -4.5 (minus 4.5) beside it meaning Kudzu U. is predicted to WIN by at least 4.5 points.
    • Thus, if you picked Kudzu, they must win the game by at least 5 points before you earn the win point.
    • Even if Weedkiller loses but does so by less than 5, you don't get the win point.
    • A game with a positive spread (i.e. 4.5) means that team is predicted to LOSE by 4.5.
  • Ties for any final end of season prizes will be broken based on lowest cumulative weekly rankings (i.e. if there were 4 weeks and one of the tied leaders finished #1,#1,#3,#5 the cumulative would be 10 and the other finished #2,#2,#2,#2, the second tied leader would win with a cumulative total of 8)
PRIZES:
  • Winner cash/gift card prizes are provided as defined by @81usaf92 based on the accumulated total points for the entire season. His decision is final. Top 3 places will be awarded for most points at the end of the regular season.
  • BamaNation will provide at least 2 random prizes throughout the season in addition to 81usaf92's prizes. Players must have entered the Pick'em that week in order to be eligible to win!
  • BamaNation will also do a random drawing at the end of the season (prior to any bowl games) for another prize. Each player will get 1 entry per week. So if a player plays all 10 weeks, s/he has 10 entries into the random year-ender prize regardless of how s/he performed.
  • All random prizes are given at the discretion of BamaNation whose judgement is final.
  • In the event that a tie cannot be broken as defined above, prizes will be split by the winners.
  • In the event that any rule needs clarifying, BamaNation will provide the clarification and his judgement is final.
Good luck everyone, and the 6th week (designated WEEK 10) of this Pick'em season is up NOW so go and join. RTR!

We all suck so badly at this. Just some of us suck more badly than others.

Quick correction: 2nd game listed - unless I’m missing a schedule change, Indiana is playing Michigan, not Michigan state. They’re playing Michigan state next week.

I did ok last week, getting 9 right. I think this means I will get 0 or 1 this week.
I’ve had two straight bad weeks - 6 last week right after 4 the week before, so I’m due for a decent week.

Then again, luck doesn’t really care about last week or the week before. I’m reminded of a newspaper clipping I carried with me for years to remind myself of that fact.

It was an interview with legendary Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna who failed to finish the first two races of the 1994 season. In each of the first two races, he’d been involved in minor accidents which prevented him from continuing. Prior to the third race, a journalist had asked him how he expected it to go. Senna optimistically responded that it couldn’t get any worse than it had been in the previous two races and he expected to do well. He was killed the following day when his car went into a concrete retaining wall at 145mph.

Fixed!

EVERYBODY needs to go back and make sure your pick is what you want it to be with this corrected info. SORRY ABOUT THE ERROR.
Since I am doing so poorly, I am going to leave things as they were when I first selected. I am totally lost this year.
