SECTalk.com will host three football pick 'em contests for 2013-2014:

-2013 SEC/NCAA Football (including Conference Championship games)
-2013-14 NFL (including Playoffs)
-2013-14 College Football Bowl Season

All games have been submitted for the 2013 SEC/NCAA Football Regular Season and 2013-14 NFL pick ‘ems, with a couple of exceptions.   Obviously, the SEC/Other Conference Championship Games and the NFL Playoff Games cannot be entered until the matchups are known towards the end of the season.

In addition to SEC matchups during the regular season, I tried to select several other intriguing games each week involving non-SEC teams.  My goal was to provide at least 15 games each week to pick.  

This is not a spread based contest.  You simply pick the winner of each game.  You can get to the Pick 'Ems by clicking the "Pick 'Ems" tab at the top of the page.   Make sure when you make your picks, you remember to click “Submit Picks” at the bottom of the week’s pick ‘ems.   If you want to make changes to your picks prior to the week’s pick ‘ems closing, you can make changes and click “Submit Picks” again, and it keeps your latest changes in the system.  

In the past, on several occasions, I’ve had people tell me that they forgot to make their picks after the pick ‘ems closed and asked me to make their picks for them.  I CANNOT make your picks for you.  So, make sure to get them in prior to closing.  One thing I do (and recommend you do the same) is make several week’s picks in advance to make sure I don’t miss a week.  After all, you can still go back and make changes right up until closing, even if you’ve already entered your picks.

Each game will close prior to kick off (each game has it's own individual closing time).  Obviously, many (and most) games do not have a scheduled start time as of yet.  So, I set the closing time for unknown game times as 12:00 Eastern on the Saturday that they are scheduled since that is the earliest the game should start.  As each week gets closer, we will try to enter the exact starting time when it is announced so that you have ample time to enter your pick.

Picking Schedule

Since Thursday night games are televised, I included a Thursday night game for almost every week in the SEC/NCAA Pick 'Ems.  Make sure to make the pick for those Thursday night games prior to kick-off.

The same holds true for NFL picks.  Most weeks include a Thursday night game.

The bottom line is that it's up to you to keep up and get your picks in before closing,

Participation

Any registered user may register in any and all contests. However, only members with 100 or more posts will be eligible for any prizes that may be offered. Furthermore, ties for prizes will be broken by post count.

Prizes

Prize info is as follows:  SECTalk will award the winner of both the SEC/NCAA pick 'ems and the NFL pick 'ems $50 each in fan gear from our fan shop as the prize.  Any prize for the Bowl pick 'ems will be announced at a later date.

The College Football Bowl Season Pick ‘Ems will be announced in this thread when the time comes.

If you have any questions regarding the contest, feel free to contact me or Benny.

Thanks for reading, and good luck to everyone.

First, will we still do the bookie with the picking against the spread? We did it last year but it was only up for a couple of weeks. Second, I still think all ties should be decided by a fight to the death.
I imagine we'll do bookie events as well.  I think jacobp and tider took care of the bookie events last year.  I am willing to help, but not head it up.  Taking care of the pick 'ems and official game threads is about all I can handle, especially based on the piddly $200K salary Benny pays.

@Benny I'll under cut GAMECOCK_FAN and do his job for the ridiculously low $195K

What you didn't notice is @GAMECOCK_FAN didn't say "$200K a YEAR....

We will do the bookie events again this year. I'll get with Tider and we'll come up with some betting events. Not only betting against the spread but may some stat based bets as well, ie most passing yards that week, most turnovers, etc, I'm open to any and all suggestions.

If you lose the entire season by 1, you're going to kick yourself.

No UGA vs North Texas in Week 3 or is that on purpose?

If any of you want to see any specific bookie events or have some ideas, let us know. I may even do a couple of NFL games if people care enough for them.
