Morning everyone. In case you have not noticed, it's game week. I hope we've been practicing enough and are ready.
Anyway, at various times posters have expressed an interest in a football poll with something along the lines of MGo points at stake. I dont like the point idea, but I LOVE the idea of a football pool. Here are my ideas:
1.) I will list something like a dozen games with the spread. Each of us has to pick 4 games. You have the option among those four, to label one pick as a double play. So, there are five total points (a general term here, not mgo points) up for grabs each week. I will keep a running total, produce updated standings each week and then release a new set of games. As we get into the season, the stakes will be raised--like every game is worth two points with an option with one three-point play. Something like that.
2.) This might be a bit more complicated, but it is Michigan centric, which might make our Fearless Leader feel a bit better about turning his forum section into a gambling parlor. LOL. Anyway, what I will do is take a look at the week's Michigan game. I will produce stat lines for players and/or teams and we would have to pick either Over or Under those stats. For example: Brandon Minor rushing yards, O/U 99.5. The scoring would be the same as above. Pick 4 off the list, with the ability to do a double play.
The second option is a bit harder on the moderator as far as coming up with the various stats. But, it could end up being more fun than merely picking games.
What are the stakes? How about pride, folks? Seriously, I wont ask for entry fees. It will be free. You will just have to trust me that I will come up with a good prize for the winner and second runner up. And, maybe a booby prize for the last guy.
Any thoughts? Lets figure out a game for us all to play and I will be more than willing to run the pool.
Otherwise, back to practice bitches! We have Western in a few days. And, you know what that means, right? Trouble for the Broncos!
