I love the pick-ems and the idea of it.

The problem? Deciding ties by post count...

This encourages people to just post to post and not to offer anything meaningful.

I would recommend the tie-breaker to be a points situation for the National Championship. Something like total points scored combined without going over.

Just food for thought.

OK, we'll try it that way this year.  I had similar suggestions last year from several other posters.  Tiebreaker for the NCAA Pick 'Ems will be total points scored by both teams in the NC Game, and tiebreaker for the NFL will be total points scored by both teams in the Super Bowl.

Editing the OP to reflect the above.

Once one of the MS teams lose, whether it's us or y'all, I'll probably post 500 times anyway. The Posted Image talk has been calm for the last few months, but that Posted Image is gonna flare up.

Can you imagine October 5th if both teams are still undefeated? This Posted Image storm is going to be amazing. I will relish the moment and come together with my racist brothers up north, even if for one week, just to rustle the collective jimmies of the rest of the SEC. :trollface:

WTF are you talking about.  Utah State is playing Tennessee in week 1.  All games with SEC teams are included.
