The same rules will apply as in the past-
Predict the winners, no point spreads. The person with the highest percentage correct at the end of the season will be the winner. Most weeks will have 8-10 games.
There will be a total of around 125 regular season games and 25 bowls. Approximately 100 regular season games will be the minimum needed to qualify for the championship along with the 25 bowls. There may be optional games or bowls to allow people to qualify or improve their score.
If everyone starts at week one and no one forgets to pick any weeks, all games could be mandatory but that is usually not practical because a few people start late or miss a week or two due to business or other interruptions. That is why 100 of the 125 regular season games is sufficient.
If anyone has a game they are interested in, just suggest it before Saturday night when I make up the next week's schedule. If there is a game of well known BCS teams but I think everyone will vote one way, I usually omit it- like Michigan vs Alabama in week 1.
You are allowed to change any pick before kickoff of that game.
