Here you go @WCFHawkeye. I'll do this if you agree to keep track week to week. I have no idea why I'm subjecting myself to this.


Rules & Scoring:
For each game pick W/L and Petras total TDs.
5 points for each correct answer
15 point bonus at the end of the year for the correct overall record
Tiebreak: Tyler Goodson season total rushing & receiving yards, price is right rules apply.

If we still have a tie...I don't know. Fight to the death I guess.

Closes at noon next Friday.

Schedule:
vs Indiana
@ Iowa State
vs Kent State
vs Colorado State
@ Maryland
vs Penn State
vs Purdue
@ Wisconsin
@ Northwestern
vs Minnesota
vs Illinois
@ Nebrantska
Tiebreak:

Prizes:
1st place: 17" single burner Blackstone tailgating griddle [Link]
2nd-last: Halo Premium Membership. Like Ricky Bobby said, if you ain't first, you're last.

So if we lose Petras in week 1, the game ends then, right?

Schedule:
vs Indiana - W, 2 TD
@ Iowa State - W, 2 TD
vs Kent State - W, 3 TD
vs Colorado State, W 2 TD
@ Maryland - W, 1 TD
vs Penn State - W, 2 TD
vs Purdue, - W, 0 TD
@ Wisconsin - W, 2 TD
@ Northwestern - W, 2 TD
vs Minnesota - W, 2 TD
vs Illinois - W, 3 TD
@ Nebrantska W, 4 TD
Tiebreak: Goodson Rush Yards: 867,
Rec Yards: 246
Total: 1113

By golly, looks like we have an unexpected undefeated season with the now-elite non-pants shitting Petras. Making us all look like assholes. CCMF. Big ten championship will be ours.

I'll gladly keep score, but need some clarification. The first two people participants broke down the rushing and passing yards separately. We just need total yards, correct? Rushing/receiving breakdown don't matter?

Are we doing Price is right rules, like last time, which enabled @Debit One to pull out the victory over @JD720, who was 2 points over?

I will get my winning picks submitted in a day or two.

For those who don't remember, this was the final results last time. It was truly a nail-biter right up to the end.

@BngHawk, @Hawk_Kegmasters, note above Price is right rules are in effect for total yardage. Not sure if that will change your predictions, but with an important update like this, it is crucial to know the rules now before the deadline closes. Halo does not need a disputed or challenged contest on November 26th.

@Herky823 please amend the O.P.

TYFYS.

Debit never even took payment last time, even after I asked a couple times. Presumably this was because he didn’t want someone who came up with that game to have any way of contacting him IRL. Offer still stands tho.

Whatever this pot ends up being, I will match it for the poster that comes up with the best insult for this stupid game and the stupid person who started it.

I propose a change in entry fee to $100 per entry. Let’s get all of Halo in this contest.

Bump.

50 hours away from closure, 15 entrants to date, which is already 50% more than the 2018 game. Only 3 holdovers from that year, so 12 new entrants.

No and me.

To preempt your next question, I'm not exactly sure why.

Because you are going to get your picks submitted in the next 48 hours and 45 minutes, and win the whole thing.
I'll enter for sure, though I already own two blackstones so when I win I'll give it to second place. Better to spread the good word.

Fuck, I’m retarded and have to draw a picture to understand Price is Right rules.

It would still be fun to win with his picks though.
