Cimarron Has done a great job of running this game for as long as I can remember. He's the moderator of this game, but he hasn't been on the board for a few months. So I'm going to get the game kicked off. I hope he doesn't mind. The rules can be found below. You know what to do. Good luck, and GO POKES!

1) Pick one college FBS team per week.
2) The team you pick MUST BE UNDEFEATED AND PLAYING THIS WEEK.
3) Once you pick a team you MAY NOT PICK THEM AGAIN.
4) If your pick loses you're out.
5) You only advance to the next week if your pick wins.
6) If you don't pick you're out.
7) If you wait too long, and SATURDAY games have kicked off you're OUT. (All picks must be posted before 11:00 AM CT - see rule 8 for exceptions)
8) If you pick teams that play prior to Saturday those picks have to be made before that game kicks off
9) Last player standing wins.
10) Picks must be posted in that week’s thread.
12) PICKS WILL CONTINUE INTO CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK IF UNDEFEATED TEAMS STILL REMAIN AND SURVIVORS REMAIN.
13) If you can’t make a pick in any given week you are out.
14) You CAN NOT PM your picks.
15) You CAN NOT create a new thread to post your pick.
16) Managing your picks is part of the game. I will not tell you who you have picked.
17) Each succeeding week post your pick for that week as well as those of your previous picks.
18) As moderator of the pool I will settle all disputes.
19) If you change a pick, don’t make a change in the original post just make a new post.
20) Be very clear who your pick is. If your pick can't be distinguished between two or more teams (example OSU) then you get each of them for that week. Either one of them losses, you're out!
21) With your pick post a prediction for the total number of points scored in that game. This will serve as the tiebreaker at the end of the game if needed.
22) If your pick has their game cancelled, you automatically advance to the next week. You won't be allowed to pick the same team in future weeks. Any picks falling into this category must be picked prior to the announcement of the cancellation of the game.
23) If a player makes an invalid pick, they will have until the Saturday 11:00 AM CT deadline to change their pick. If their pick isn't changed prior to the deadline, they are out. (Invalid picks are teams that aren't undefeated, or teams that a player has picked in a previous week.)


Example:
Week 1: Penn State
Week 2: Clemson
Week 3: South Carolina
Week 4: Indiana
...
Week 8: Oklahoma State (65)

Cim had a professional life change so, like me, no consistency of time, he may play but he’s not going to run it.
A word of caution- unless you want to use the spreadsheets I foolishly created when I was helping Cim, (damn you Cim for not warning me) use the honor system, much less time consuming plus there’s a great guy on here, don’t recall his name but he uses ‘boom’ which irritates some, I like it, but he keeps everyone honest.

Thanks for letting me know. The honor system sounds great. I'll try to keep the game going in the future.

One suggestion to keep this thread at minimum, if your pick missed, don't come back and post that you are out. Simply don't make a pick the following week. Paging @PistolChad
