Pick the SEC?

We run a pool every year, here at work, where we pick the entire SEC football season before the first game. Whoever picks the most games wins. Is there any interest in running this one here? I went ahead and attached the form, so y'all could see what we're talking about. Let me know, and we can run this.

This competition would replace this one: http://www.mustangevolution.com/forum/t33378/

I like it...let's run this one.

I could whip up a quick online app to track it if we needed to as well....

Re: Pick the SEC?

I am just about finished with a front end to let us track our selections and view a current standings list if we were to run this pool. I'll be uploading it in a little while for us to start entering our pics once I finish the tie breaker side of things.

It's going to let you sign up and then make your pics up until game day of week 1. No changes will be allowed after that point. Then it will automatically gen the standings as we enter the scores for the games and display them on the main page.

That's awesome. I wasn't looking forward to scoring them by hand.

Re: Pick the SEC?

Ok. Everyone interested in participating in the pool can enter their selections here:

Mustang Evolution :: 2008 SEC Football Pool

You will be able to enter and change your selections up until 12:01 am on 8/28/2008.

I still have to get the admin side of it for score entry and add in the tie breaker calculations into the standings when needed, but everyone can get their picks in now, the tie break stuff is months off anyhow.


HERE ARE THE DIRECTIONS FOR ENTERING YOUR PICKS
1. Enter a user name and password wither on the main screen or on the "Make My Picks" screen. If you have not registered yet, this will create your user id. If you have already registered, then it will log you in. NOTE: The passwords are not encrypted in the db...just an FYI.

2. Select your pick for each game for each week. The "Save >>" button saves and goes to the next week, the "<< Save" button saves and goes back one week. The "Save" button just saves. Be sure to click one of the save buttons on each week and tie breaker page or else your selections will not be saved.

3. You can come back and modify your picks anytime you want up until the cutoff date mentioned above. Just log in and go back through the weeks.


I will add the week number selection to the main page so we can see the results from each week. The important part was to give people the chance to make their picks now.

If something crashes or whatever, just shoot me a PM about it. Also, if you forget your password, let me know and I can get it back for you.

Re: Pick the SEC?

done with picks. One question.. The last page says SEC Score EAST/WEST. Is this a guess total number of points achieved for the entire season?

No, it is the point total in the SEC Championship game for the SEC East team and West team. I shortened the text due to space issues....
