I didn't play last year, so I'm a little fuzzy on the rules, but do I need to update my picks for Pick Six somewhere or does that only happen every two or three weeks?
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Usually someone posts a link to a google spreadsheet that has the results along with a little write-up. I have been on the lookout for it too and unfortunately I don't believe the link has been posted yet.
I'm thinking that my pick of Houston as the preseason non-Top 25 team to finish with the highest ranking is not going to work out all that well.
Same here. Ouch.
Did you forget (or were unaware) that Kevin Sumlin had left Houston for Texas A&M, too?
That is my defense (I honestly forgot about his move) and it is gonna cost me on that pick.
No, did not forget, just thought (as a lot of others) that Houston would breeze through until the CUSA champ game. Losing to Texas State however is terrible.
Upon doing a site-search of the Pick 6, and heading to the original post/diary link, it shows a response of "MGoblog Pick Six is no longer accepting entries". I don't know if that's because it was "shut-down" due to the start of the games and to not allow people to pick after kick-offs started or if it's shut-down completely.
The picks you made were for the end of season AP poll results. Usually there's an update posted every now and then with the standings, but I haven't seen it posted this week (like everyone else has said).
Edit: It looks like Jeff was looking for someone to take on the daily write ups this year. Did anyone volunteer?
Oh, ok, thanks. That makes sense. I just re-read it and realized that when he was talking about updating each week that he meant standings and not new ballots each week.
Just as an update, I just emailed him at the address he left. I told him I would be willing to do the write-ups if nobody else has volunteered yet, which seems likely since it's Friday and nothing has been posted.
I'll be expecting an in depth run-down of each weeks' changes near and atop the leaderboard, every Thursday (or, Friday?) by 1600. Kidding..Any idea how much work that'll actually entail?
Jeff says some other people volunteered as well. I'll wait to hear back and see what Pick Six needs to be an MGoStaple each week and go from there.
In the meantime, if you click his username and "Jeff's Blog" link, you should find all of last years updates. I'm assuming this year will be roughly the same deal.
Sounds like everything has been answered already. The picks made at the beginning of the year last all season. There was no update after Week 1 because there is not that much movement in the polls (except for one team :( but we won't talk about that). And it gives a little more time to get everything in order.
We did have a couple people volunteer, so we should have the first recap post next week. Thanks for the email justingoblue I'll get in touch with you too. More people to share the work is always a good thing.
I know there's no update, but is there a link yet to a google spreadsheet with everyone's picks? I honestly forgot my last team already lol. Thanks.
There will be. That's what the morning games are for :)
But for the moment, please accept my condolences on your Utah pick.
Ahh, that's what I thought. I couldn't remember if it was Utah or North Carolina... But my second choice was going to be Houston so I was in trouble either way...
But thanks for checking!
EDIT: I just remembered I had 32 place finish last year with my unranked choice of Texas putting up 0 so there's still hope!
