    Who's ready for another season of Pick 'Em? I'm going to use six games a week from Monday-Sunday. I'll typically post the upcoming games of the week on Monday morning and recap the scores from the previous week. As always, assign a value of 1-6 for each game according to your confidence level. We had quite a few posters miss a week or two last year, so I'll go ahead and let you know that I'll drop your lowest weekly point total. This week we have 6 neutral court games.

    Tuesday- Kansas vs. Duke (New York, NY)
    Tuesday- Michigan State vs. Kentucky (New York, NY)
    Tuesday- Saint Mary's vs. Wisconsin (Sioux Falls, SD)
    Friday- Auburn vs. Davidson (Annapolis, MD)
    Friday- Baylor vs. Washington (Anchorage, AK)
    Saturday- Oklahoma vs. Minnesota (Sioux Falls, SD)

    For those wondering, Quade Green of Washington is immediately eligible.

    Someone told me that rivals will only alert 5 people or so with a notification if you're tagged. @jhmossy @SNU0821 @WeAreDePaul @GE Nole @JimboBBN

    6 Kansas
    5 Baylor
    4 Saint Mary’s
    3 Kentucky
    2 Auburn
    1 Oklahoma

    Me picking Kansas as “6” means I have the highest confidence in Kansas right?

    1 UK
    2 Kansas
    3 Oklahoma
    4 Washington
    5 Wisconsin
    6 Auburn

    Is 6 the most or least confident?

    I'm most confident Auburn will win, if it's the other way, reverse the order
    .

    *I just read KUhawks post, and edited my order.

    6 is the most confident. If you're correct on the 6-point game, you get 6 points; 5 points for the 5 point confidence level, and so forth. So, if you're most confident about Auburn winning, your points should be adjusted as follows:

    6- Auburn
    5- Wisconsin
    4- Washington
    3- Oklahoma
    2- Kansas
    1- Kentucky

    Three games in and @coryfly is the only one with a perfect score.All three featured games were within a single possession in the final minute of play. That was fun.

    Since this thread is pinned, I won't create new threads each week. I'll simply change the week in the title and tag everyone.

    I'm going to drop the lowest weekly score for everyone, so as long as you make picks every week you should be okay.

    You gotta take KU as your 6 point pick since you got in after that game started. I think that's what you meant. 6 being most confident, 1 being least confident. (Racking up the most points is the object of the game). Wouldn't be fair to only lose 1 point on that game and still have your highest scoring games available. For all we know you could've had Kansas as your 6 if you had gotten in before the game started. It would probably be easier just to leave off any games you miss if you get in late. IE - if you miss the first 3 games, just list your picks for 3, 2, and 1.
