I'd probably be in. One thought though, depending on how many people join, I'd love to see 3 or 4 places paid. If it's like 20 people or something, you're paying in for such a small chance of winnings.

I would like to have 3 or 4 places paid but there probably wont be 20. This is the 4th year doing this and last three years having 10 people in 2014, 6 in 2015 and 9 last year.

I don't like how it shows you the bar that represents how everyone else is picking. It just facilitates group-think instead of letting everyone make their own picks. Is that a setting that can be toggled?

I dont like it either but espn has always had that and it cant go away. I agree it can make your picking a little diminishing if its 25% or less. There will be "upsets" so to speak.

Sadly we are going to have to try and ignore it.

If Georgia wins

1st - ClearSights

2nd - TieBreaker #1 smallest total difference Tiebreaker #2 Closest to winning team
Score:
Slim - Georgia 31 Alabama 30 TB#1 Total = 61 TB#2 = 31

Bat - Georgia 27 Alabama 24 TB#1 Total = 51 TB#2 = 27


If Alabama wins

1st - Ryan

2nd - ClearSights

STRAIGHT SCORING TIEBREAKERS: In all cases, an entry that does not win a tiebreaker is eliminated from consideration: Tiebreaker #1 - An Entrant's predicted Tiebreaker Game score is compared to the actual Tiebreaker Game score. The differences between the predicted scores and actual scores for each team are added. The entry with the smallest total difference is considered the winning entry. Tiebreaker #2 - The Entrant whose predicted score for the winning team of the Tiebreaker Game is closest to the actual score of the winning team is considered the winning entry.
