    It's time for Pick 'Em Season 2! The rules are simple. Every week, you'll be picking the winners for all the SEC games, and other random games from around the country for a total of 20 games. The picks will not be straight up, but will be made against the spread. For those who have no freaking clue how the spread works, it will be explained further as we get closer to the season.

    Each correct pick will be a point, and points standings will be kept throughout the season. At the end of the season (which will run through the NC game), the member with the most points will win the grand prize: a $300 Amazon Gift Card. How to play is as follows:

    Hit the "Pick Em" tab. You'll see a button showing "Manage Your Pools" or "Available Pools" if you've never played before - click it.

    [​IMG]

    Find 2019 NCAA Football Season and click "Join Pool".

    [​IMG]

    Now that you've joined the pool, you'll need to manage your picks. It's part of the tab dropdown.

    [​IMG]

    The weekly picks will now appear on your screen. This will show the point spreads and percentage bars representing the picks that have already been made by others. For you to make your own picks, you'll need to click the blue "Make Your Picks" button - BIG BLUE BUTTON AT THE TOP OF THE SCREEN.

    [​IMG]

    At this point you'll be able to make your picks, and save them at the bottom. The team on the right represents the home team, and the spread figure in the middle represents the number for the home team. If the Gators are the home team and the number reads -10.5, then the Gators are FAVORED 10.5 points, and have to win by 11 to "win" that pick. If the number read 10.5 instead of -10.5, then the VISITING team is favored by 10.5.

    [​IMG]

    After your picks are made and saved, the team you chose will show up in bold, as well as a check mark on the far right.

    [​IMG]

    And that's how you make your picks. The system will be sending out reminders so you don't forget to make your picks. You can make changes to your picks at any time up until they lock before the games, 30 minutes before kickoff.

    If you want to have a real shot at winning the grand prize, you aren't going to be able to miss weeks. The standings and some other information will be shown in the sidebar throughout the season. 200 members played at least 1 week last season, and I'd like to beat that number. Top 3 last season were:

    #1: Gator515151
    #2: Gator87
    #3: Mgnihilo

    Week 1 is already in the system and ready to go. The spread numbers do not change in Pick 'Em as they do in real life, they are locked in at that number no matter what.

    Discuss.

      Uh, with a few clicks you can make all the picks. It's very fast.

      Quick pick would let the system randomly assign teams to the person. It would be funny if you had such an option and someone used it and finished with among the best records.

          I personally think Musclepug is going to be a contender this year.





          For last place.

            If 515151 is in it, we're all playing for 2nd place.

              He won't finish in the Top 25.

                The only way he don’t finish in the top 25 is if he doesn’t participate for half the season.

                    I have few regrets in this life but not participating last year and giving you guys a good @s s whooping is one of them.
                    Of course as soon as I've been eliminated I will pull a donkey and delete this post.

                      No reason for you to participate then. I have blocked you from entering.

                        Can't help but wonder who rocked 4th place? I'm betting forth place winner will be mighty motivated to win.

                        All the information after the Top 3 was permanently deleted so we'll never know.

                          Flushed it all down the memory hole, eh? Similar to what Obama did with all his meeting notes on boarder security. Very smart to flush all the evidence. May come back to haunt you though.
