    This alternative has been discussed in the past for previous contests. The argumnent against it has been, the Bettorsworld site would not benefit from the site hits that it currently receives from these contests.

      Another alternative that is available for consideration.

      Can go ahead to include all 35 games on 10 individual dates, instead of 18 individual dates. This would reduce the clutter of posts on the board due to the ongoing Mock Hilton and NFL Weekly Contests. Bowl dates that would be grouped together are:

      Dec. 20, 21, & 22 (3 games)
      Dec. 24 & 26 (2 games)
      Dec. 27, 28, & 29 (6 games)
      Jan. 3 & 4 (2 games)
      Jan. 6, 7, & 8 (3 games)

      The following proposed rule would apply to selecting the above games:

      All picks must be POSTED ONE HOUR prior to the scheduled start of the FIRST GAME that will be played on that day.

      AND
      When scheduled Bowl games are grouped together, e.g., Dec. 27, 28, & 29 all of the picks must be posted ONE HOUR prior to the scheduled start of the FIRST GAME in the posted thread. PLEASE READ THIS RULE CAREFULLY! This is for ease of scorekeeping.



      Input welcome.

          I would have said grouping is better as well.
          That way the last group of bowls will have clear leaders, maybe the final 3 bowls in a group, and those picks could be emailed and posted after the deadline for the leaders.

            Eliminate all the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday scheduled bowl games, but not any of the scheduled BCS games that fall on a weekday - Sugar and Orange Bowl games are exempted.

            This would now involve about 21 or 22 bowl games and 11 individaul dates vs all 35 games scheduled on 18 individual dates.

            Input welecome.

              Here are the rules:

              1)Pick SIDES ONLY! No totals.
              2) Dec 18th thru Jan 10th Bowl game wins will be scored as follows:
              - BCS Championship Game win - 3 pts
              - BCS Bowls: Sugar, Rose, Fiesta, and Orange wins - 2 pts
              - All other lesser Bowl wins from Dec 18th thru Jan 9th - 1pt
              3) All ties will be worth 1/2 point regardless of when the game is played!
              4) The tiebreaker, if necessary, will be the combined total score of the BCS Championship Game.
              5) Bowl games and LV Hilton lines will be posted 1-2 days prior to their scheduled start date.
              6) All picks must be POSTED ONE HOUR prior to the scheduled start of the FIRST GAME that will be played on that day. PLEASE READ THIS RULE CAREFULLY! This is for ease of scorekeeping.

                Last year and the year before all 30 plus Bowl games were included in the contest. In both years, there was a separate thread for each individual day the games were scheduled (19 in all last year). The issue this year is with the Mock Hilton Contest in addition to the weekly NFL Contest, will the same format used last year result in too much clutter on the board.

                Perhaps NOT. On the other hand, is it too much for the score keeper to deal with?

                  Will someone be specifically appointed to be abusive and a general a$$hole to the contestants? I don't think Carpet, FSU, or myself will feel comfortable participating without this element. I know of someone who can fill that role with experience. Just a thought.

                      The Boys

                      Since yesterday, looks like 3 alternatives have surfaced for the College Bowl Contest 2011-2012. The 3 are:

                      1) Follow the same format as last year and post all 35 of the bowl games on the 18 scheduled dates from Dec. 17. 2011, thru Jan 9, 2012.

                      2) Post all 35 of the bowl games on 10 scheduled dates from Dec. 17. 2011, thru Jan 9, 2012 – this would involve grouping together several scheduled dates of games, e.g., Dec. 20. 21, & 22 (3 games); Dec. 24 & 26 (2 games); Dec. 27, 28 & 29 (6 games) etc.

                      3) Eliminate the number of the lesser prestigious Bowl games by 10 – 14 games; therefore, likely end up with about 21 – 25 games for the contest.

                      From what I gather from this thread, no one has a problem with scoring Bowl Wins as follows:
                      BCS Championship Game win - 3 pts
                      BCS Bowls: Sugar, Rose, Fiesta, and Orange wins - 2 pts
                      All other lesser Bowl wins - 1pt
                      All ties will be worth 1/2 point regardless of when the game is played.

                      Let this hang out there for a few more days for comment, and we’ll finalize the format by Sunday, Dec. 11.

                      Once again, thanks for contacting Jeff for the approval of the prize $$ and of course THANK YOU Jeff.

                          Job Posting;

                          Position: Manage and run the College bowl contest.

                          Skills needed: Really none. It is preferred that you cannot spell or place two words together correctly.

                          Special Requirements: The ideal person for this position should also be very good at driving customers away. A strong use of the ghetto language is preferred.

                          Experience: The more you lose in your bets the better qualified the candidate is in telling everyone else they suck.

                          This is a one of a kind position and with the right person we actually think we can drive this ship deep into an ocean together.

                          Sincerely,

                          The bowl squad.
