    Hey Boys:

    I have last year's instructions which did not result in any problems. I also posted the lines and instructions last year and am willing to do so again this year. However, if some else wants to post the lines, I'll step aside.

    Last year, there was a little hic up on the final BCS Championship game where the leaders should submit their final selections. I'll include the tie breaking info in the instructions.

    Thanks for checking with Jeff.

        The Boys:

        The problems, I have with posting the picks all at one time are:

        1) Player injuries and suspensions, especially the latter "suspensions". Players being suspended for negotiating with NFL agents, poor grades hidden throughout the season and revealed in late December, missing curfews because of party time at some of the bowl locations, and some teams who don't even want to be there.

        2) Coaches being fired or accepting another head coaching job, therefore impacting the team morale.

        3) Lines are affected by the above.

        Just my opinion, I'll go with the majority.

              you forgot to add all the coaching changes going on at Offense, Defense and Head Coaches. I have seen 10 games already where this is a factor.

              We cant sit back and wait for the next shoe to drop in a contest post the as they are and lets do our home work,

                  Dragon - Carpet

                  Dragon - thanks for volunteering. Scorekeeping would be great.


                  Carpet -you asked "how many games are you thinking? "

                  I'll post the 35 scheduled Bowl games next in this thread.

                  For board input, do you want to eliminate some of the lesser (tidy toilet bowl games)?

                  I realize that the Mock Hilton and Weekly NFL contests are still going on and the scheduled bowl games will invlove 18 individual dates from Dec.17. 2011, thru Jan 9, 2012. Will this be to much clutter on the board?" Therefore, only go with the weekend, and BCS Bowls. With XMAS and New Year's on Sunday, the weekend holiday is extended to Monday.
                  OR
                  Simply just include all 35 bowl games. Whatever.

                  Input welcome.

                        I think 18 might be too small....maybe at least 20? Here's 10 that can be scratched IMO.
                        1-5, 9, 11, 15, 16, 34

                          Here's an alternative to consider.

                          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.

                            OK, with your above schedule, the contest would not start until Dec. 22, Thursday (Las Vegas Bowl - ASU vs Boise St). Still would end up with about 14 individual dates. Any suggestions how the scheduled games should be posted? That is, group several individual dates together. If thatís the case, instructions on deadlines for posting before kickoffs would have to be clearly clarified. As you know, no matter how clear you state the posting deadlines, someone always has a problem with it.

                            Input welcome.
