Discussion and organization of fantasy leagues, pick'em groups, survivor pools, etc.
Was another great season on the Fantasy front in 2014. We had two full leagues and everybody involved stayed active all season. Winners have been paid and we look forward to next season.
Congrats to SATP and ourn for winning their leagues. Myself and Lake_Bum came in second in our leagues. The...

"The game itself is pretty simple: Correctly pick the winners of 10 select college football games each week. But the...
Opening a discussion for this poll to see if there is a) enough interest (with commitment) to do it again this year, and b) determine rules/protocol.
If there are no objections or no one else wants it, I am okay to manage the group and post the polls again, but would need some interested...
MODS: Sticky please!
All - I renewed my Yahoo College Football Pick'em group from last year.
If you were in last year you should have received an email invite.

Create a post and you're in the game.
1. Each week each person chooses one FBS team.
2. The team you pick must be undefeated.
3. You may only pick each team once.
4. Each week, if you survived, you will add your new pick to your original post in the Survival Pool thread. Do not delete...

Does anyone else play this?
I bring this up because I'm in the denial stage of just losing my streak of 32 last night when Mike Trout decided to be a bum and go 0-for-3 with 3 strikeouts.
If there's enough people, I could get a group set up.
Yahoo - "Flip of a Coin Group". ID 103614
This is a fun little event I put together the last few years and decided to again this year.
* You flip a coin to decide who wins each match. It's as simple as that. You may flip any coin that has two distinct sides and is not...
Any interest in it this year? I'll throw the group together if people want to do it
Anyone else play Streak for the Cash on ESPN? Maybe if there's enough people, we could get a LT group going.

As there were some that didn't get into the first league I would be happy to start a second league and get that one full if there is enough interest. We would follow the same layout we have for the first one. 12 team league, 50$ entry fee, non keepers. Today is the 10th, will give it until the...
So for those of you who don't know Irish is no longer around. I am going to get our league going this year, as he was Commish last year I'm not able to just reactivate last years league. So will have to just create a new one. I plan on using all the same rules as last year as that seemed to go...
For a small entry fee ($10), you pick as many or as few games as you like, and you weight your picks between 0 and 200 in increments of 10.
If you lose, then you are penalized an extra 10%, like in Vegas.
EDIT: USAO dug up the rules from last year. See below.
For entertainment purposes...
Wanna play a game?
If you are familiar with how the pick'em group worked, this is the same except you basically pick & rank all the games at once... It's supah dupah fun. I think this is our 3rd year for it.
Post all your thoughts, discussions, and bitching about Stinger's picks in this thread. Let's keep the weekly threads clean of commentary.
CURRENT LEADERBOARD (WEEK 18)
Last week of LOTW. :wow:
Stinger has 1st place all but wrapped up, but ninja, StatGeek, and USAO are all within striking distance of a pay slot at #2.
Here's the Must Picks, note they start on New Year's Day!
Must Pick (Against The Spread Only, O/U Available as a LOTW)
I know. It's only week 1, BUT.....
14 team PPR league, FLEX spot:
Ertz vs. Jags
Mike Evans vs. Carolina
Woodhead @ Arizona
Just two more weeks to go. Here's the slate for Week #18 with a heated battle going for 2nd place (and cash) behind our fearless leader.
REMINDER: TOP 4...
Please send picks to me directly in PM.

Check in where you're signed up.
Through fantrax.com Draft will be Monday Augusts 25 at 7 pm Central* (* Can be changed obviously).
You ALL SUCK :gundyshart:
Two from the board in (plus me - and a few other non-regulars) and one other committed. Last year, we had over 50 people in it. Confidence pool using only the top 17 bowl games and the national championship. Deadline is Dec. 26th. PM me for the details.
Alright, 3 weeks left. Things are bunching up behind Stinger in a fight for a payout at #2. Here's the continued muted slate for Week 17, but we do get some Bowl Games.
I've been laxed about submissions and one-offs, but for the last 3 weeks and the "playoffs", I'm going to enforce the rules...
This year we have two leagues. So I have named them Land Thieves-Boomer and Land Thieves-Sooner.
Only 4 more weeks remain in the competition and we've had a shakeup for the #2 spot. StatGeek really hasn't "surged" per se, but he's backpedalded less than ninja. Both are staring down a 6% deficit to Stinger, who would need to have back to back really poor weeks to give up ground. A 9-1/1-9 swing...
A few of the guys from the board got in last year. I have run this pool for years. Let me know if you're interested and I'll get you the details.
Sorry for the late post and missing the rogue Thursday games. :stoopspalm:
Tight slate this week as CFB goes quiet and we start to transition to bowls and NFL. It's the homestretch.
Must Pick (Against the Spread ONLY, O/U Available as LOTW Only)
SEC Championship: Missouri +14.5 vs,...
Thanksgiving Week folks. It's time to give thanks for our wins and curse our losses. Football is on just about every day this week, so I'm going to open up the thread since we have a Tuesday night game and we have a ton of football on Thanksgiving.
Must Pick (Against The Spread ONLY, O/U...
Getting an early start to Week 13 since there are a pair of Tuesday games. Must Picks and the rest of the slate posted Wed AM.
Edit: Here's the full slate. Week is pretty devoid of huge matchups, so I've mixed up the must picks a bit this week.
Must Pick (Against The Spread ONLY, O/U...
After a relatively poor week by everyone, especially our coaching staff, can we all find a way to rebound in Week 12? Here's the slate.
Must Pick (Against the Spread ONLY, O/U Available as a LOTW)
Mississippi State +8.5 @ Alabama O/U 51.5
Nebraska +6 @ Wisconsin O/U 57
Florida State -2 @...
I went 3 for 3 this week - finishing in the top 15 out of 30 teams over at draftkings.com. I've now won 5 of 6 bets this season.
The scoring includes awarding one point per reception, so I tend to spend my auction money on top of the line WRs and RBs who also catch passes. So, I had to go...
The battle at the top appears to be shaping up to a two man race...can StatGeek, Boulder, or apr reel in Stinger and ninja? Will Stinger ever stumble?
And I apologize in advance...but yes...OU is in the Must Pick slate this week. Let's see the rest for a wild Week 11:
Must Pick (Against The...
LOL @ the people already filling their post out to Week 15!
You ain't gonna last that long! :sweetbrown:
Generally a rough Week 9 has tightened up the leaderboard some from top to bottom. Do things get any easier in Week 10? Can Ninja and StatGeek run down Stinger?
Must Pick (Against The Spread ONLY, O/U Available as a LOTW)
TCU -5.5 @ West Virginia O/U 73
Stanford +7 @ Oregon O/U 54.5...
We are in search of that sports almanac that has all future results in it.
The Doc. Marty McFly. Someome has stop Biff Tannen's Pleasure Paradise...Stinger is on an epic roll and he's pulling away. Can StatGeek or mexican/ninja run him down? Can anyone else make a move with a perfect week...
In the event anyone wants the Tuesday game, it's line is posted. The others I await the O/U on before posting.
Must Pick (Against the Spread ONLY, O/U only available as a LOTW
Virginia +2.5 @ Duke O/U 50.5
Texas A&M +11.5 @ Alabama O/U 61.5
Notre Dame +11.5 @ Florida State O/U N/A
The Top 4 continue to separate themselves from the rest of the pack. Can we please run them down? Here's the slate for OU/Texsa week.
Must Pick (Against the Spread ONLY, O/U can only be chosen as a LOTW)
Auburn -3 @ Mississippi State O/U 63
TCU +8.5 @ Baylor O/U 67
