We are now just a few days away short, awful days away from the start of the 2011 college football season which means it's time to announce our annual pick 'em contest. As always, we will select ten games every week and have everyone pick with the spread. None of this just picking winners business for us. We are once again running the pool over at FunOfficePools, and we have some cool new surprises this year.
New for this year, Gameday Depot will be sponsoring the contest and awarding prizes in the form of $10 gift certificates (via coupon codes by email) to weekly winners and a yet-to-be-determined grand prize worth $50 or more for the overall season winner. If you head over to the store right now you won't see any Buffaloes merchandise but it will be there soon.
We've polished up the official rules of the contest, but the abbreviated version is that you can't win more than one pool across the SBN network (other sites are doing this as well) so don't even bother entering other sites' pools, you can't win more than once in any given 30 day period (except that winning a weekly contest at any time doesn't disqualify you from also winning the grand prize), and tiebreakers (picking the final score of one game) will be used to preclude ties.
The first game this week is the TCU - Baylor game on FRIDAY so make sure you have all of your picks by then.
