Customize The Rules For Your Pool.
Below are a set of general rules broken down into separate text areas for page layout reasons. You may edit, change, or delete any of the rules to fit your specific pool. In addition, there are 5 blank text areas. You may add additional rules if you wish in these fields. (Leave unused fields blank).
You must be 18 years of age or older to enter the pool.
All entry fees and eligibility requirements must be met prior to the start of the first game included in the pool each week.
The administrator reserves the right to delete from the pool, anyone who does not meet the above requirements by the deadline.
In case of ties the entry which comes closest to the total points in the BCS Championship Game will be the winner.
If there is still a tie after the "total points" tie breaker...the winnings will be divided between all tied participants accordingly.
The pool administrator reserves the right to change or delete any name entered that is deemed offensive or inappropriate.
All Decisions are at the sole discretion of the pool administrator and are final.
Due to the new palyoff format you must choose the winner of the Championship Game prior to the start of the first game included in your pool even though the 2 teams in the Championship game have not yet been determined. You can only get credit for a correct pick in the Championship Game if your choice from the 4 playoff teams advances to and wins the Championship Game. Your point total will still be used as a tie-braker. This pool format was set up for ease of use by not requiring entrants to register or login. Thus, there is no way to add to, edit or change your picks once they have been submitted.
