2012-13 Lock of the Day Contest, Week 8

Playoffs cutoffs will go up after week 9 (I said this week but then remembered I'll be away at the beginning of next week)

If I made any mistakes please PM me and I will fix it.

2005-06 regular season champ: PVP
2006-07 regular season champ: EC Basketball
2006-07 NCAA champ: rhodyruckus
2006-07 NIT champ: Lari Ketner

2007-08 NCAA champ: A10fan
2007-08 NIT champ: bkaniecki
2008-09 regular season champ: CarlosTheJackal
2008-09 NCAA champ: Knobby
2008-09 NIT champ: Lari Ketner
2009-10 regular season champ: mh05
2009-10 NCAA champ: EC Basketball
2009-10 NIT champ: A10fan2
2010-11 regular season champ: DukesDan
2010-11 NCAA champ: CarlosTheJackal
2010-11 NIT champ: twisted3829
2011-12 regular season champ: JHG722
2011-12 NCAA champ: Bona84
2011-12 NIT champ: stl775


Here are the rules:

1. Pick one game a day. This can be from any conference at any time of the day. You must use the following lines to participate:

Pinnacle Sports

You may mention additional games that you like, but the one that you post first will be the one we'll use when determining wins and losses. I will update the standings within 12 hours of the completion of each day's final game unless I note my absence. For easier computation, please use the following format to post your picks:

date: winner (line) over loser

For example ...

11/11: URI (-22) over Providence

You can denote the home team by using caps if you'd like, but it is not necessary. Lastly, please use the lines for that day's game. At the very least, you can use the overnight line, but that is not encouraged. Again, use the odds from the site listed above to pick against. You may also pick a game's over/under.

2. Update your initial post. Instead of posting your pick in a different message each day, simply update your initial post for the week. Put the most recent pick below the previous picks (i.e. Nov. 11's pick after Nov. 10's and so forth) when listing.

3. You will not be penalized for missing a day. In a perfect world, everyone on this board will make a selection each day, but I, like everyone else, have things to do and places to be. So if you miss a day, that's fine. The player with the highest win-loss percentage at the end of the season will be crowned our champ and universally respected. However, the champion must make an average of three selections or more over the course of the season to qualify for the title.

4. Record your success. This is optional. To highlight whether you've won or lost on a day or on previous days, you can change the font of your entry to green for a win or red for a loss (blue for the rare push). To do so, put "color=green" in brackets before your selection and "/color" in brackets afterward to denote a win; do the same for red if you lose. Or just choose the color from the menu above your message. However you do it, it will read:

11/11: URI (-22) over Providence
(If everyone could do this it is a big help)

5. Playoffs: In order to qualify for the postseason, you must have averaged three selections per week over the course of the season. We're looking at 19 weeks - that's regular season and conference tournaments - so multiply the weeks by three and that's your minimum (57) ... not that hard to achieve.

The top eight who qualify will be entered into the NCAA pool; the next eight will compete for the faux NIT title. It will be set up like a bracket - 1 v 8, 2 v 7, etc. Each participant then must select five games each week from the NIT and NCAA schedule to meet his tournament quota. Also, one must assign one of the picks as his TIEBREAKER pick; the amount by which you win or lose will break ties with participants with the same record. Winners will advance to the semis, then the finals, etc.

Re: 2012-13 Lock of the Day Contest, Week 8

12/31 : Pitt (-6.5) over Cincy

1/1 : UCONN (+5.5) over Marquette I can't buy a win!! This is all payback for hitting with Cincinnati in their bowl win over Duke. At least that paid real money.
1/2 : Creighton (-1) over Illinois State
1/4 : Georgia (-4) over GW
1/5 : Penn (+18.5) over LaSalle - that's a ton of points in a Big Five game
1/6 : Iona (-13) over Manhattan


Week : 3-2
Overall : 15-19-1

New year.. 3-1

Can I just pick against GW Dawgs the rest of the way? That 21-3 has to even out.

Re: 2012-13 Lock of the Day Contest, Week 8

Overall: 24-4
Week: 3-1

12/31: Cincinnati (+6.5) over Pittsburgh
1/1: Pass - Happy New Year!
1/2: South Florida (+7) over Central Florida
1/3: Colorado vs. Arizona over 139.5
1/4: George Washington (+4) over Georgia - my worlds are colliding here. Undergrad alma mater vs. grad alma mater. I was really hoping for an O/U line for this, because this could be painful to watch offensively. And it was - caught it in person and it was even more painful.
