Okay, this is what we're going to do. Every week there is going to be a "score contest" thread on the upcoming game. In that thread, you are going to post your prediction of the total points scored in the game by both teams without going over. In other words, if you think our Gators (or the opposition) are going to win 13-6, you would put out a score of 19. If the total points scored between both teams ends up at 18 or less, you lose! You cannot go over or your score is ineligible to place. Whichever team wins or loses is irrelevant to the contest. You are also going to give a secondary number that is only to be used in the case of ties. It's going to be the total points for both teams at halftime. Unlike the first number, this one is simply going to be who is closest to break the tie - the number can be over or under. Every week, the top 5 will get points, broken down as follows: 1st Place: 8 points 2nd Place: 4 points 3rd Place: 3 points 4th Place: 2 points 5th Place: 1 points BONUS: If you hit the total points number on the nose, you get 2 bonus points. Hence, nailing it could get you a 10 point week. If two or more people hit it exactly, the tiebreaker points would come into play to determine place. However, each would still get the 2 bonus points regardless of where they place. As the season goes on, I will keep a thread showing the Top 10 points leaders, which will change week to week. At the end of the season (and that includes the bowl game, assuming we make one), the Top 5 points leaders will get prizes. The weekly winner gets a Gatorchatter koozie! GRAND PRIZE: A $100 Gift Certificate to the Gatorzone Sports shop and a signed Steve Spurrier mini-helmet! http://shop.gatorzone.com/ Prizes for 2 through 5 are still to be determined. I may add on to the prizes as the year goes on. I understand some people like to predict scores, which is fine. We can have a separate thread picking scores for fun. The official thread will be started on the Monday before the game and scores will no longer be accepted after 10 PM EST on that Friday night, when the thread will be locked. You are allowed ONE post and unlimited edits. If you want to change your mind ten times before Friday night, fine. Contest officially begins August 25th! :dance2: Hey lurkers, why don't you register so you can play?
