Time for a new game! I'll volunteer to keep track of it. We'll call it CAA Pick-'em.

RULES:
Picking/Ranking
Pick the games of a particular week (this week will be all games from Jan. 2 to Jan. 8). No spread factored in, just pick who you think will win. Then, assign a number, 1-X (where X represents however many conference games there are to be played that week) for how sure you are about your game.
Example: A particular week has 12 games, you put a 12 next to ODU over Towson because you feel more confident in this pick over UNCW beating GMU. (basically games you expect to be blowouts will generally be higher than games you expect to be close)
Scoring:
Each correct pick will result in earning the number of points equal to the number you ranked the pick in terms of how confident you were in that pick.
Example: You correctly picked Drexel beating Towson. You assigned a 6 to the game. You earned 6 points for that pick.
Tie Breakers:
Guess the total points to be scored for the final game to be played that week. It will be the last game listed each week. Person closest to the correct score wins. If there is still a tie, the first person that posted will be declared the winner.

Your whole "points system" is what causes this. I am going to play starting now and put 18 next to all of my picks. There are no penalty points for games that you pick incorrectly, thus I will get 18 points for any of the games that I correctly pick and will be in the lead after tonight, eventhough I have already missed 2 full dates of games. 8-)
 
Re: CAA Pick-'em Jan 2

I've had nothing to do at work this morning, so I recalculated everything (quickly, so there may be a mistake or two in my math - may have credited plus points when they should have been negative for picking the wrong winner, caught myself doing that twice but may have missed one) going by what I suggested as far as taking the points away from the person when they pick the wrong winner. Just keeps you more honest I would think....

After the first set of games on Jan 2nd with the adjusted scoring, the standings would have been....
1. Boom - 39
2. Pav - 38
3. Jwetzel - 34
4. Kazie - 27
5. VCU RAM - 25
6. Kaplan - 21
7. EnonRam - 17

After the 2nd set of games on Jan 4th, the standings are....
1. Kazie - 53
2. Boom - 30
2. Jwetzel - 30
4. Pav - 27
5. EnonRam - 22
6. Kaplan - 16
7. VCU RAM - 9

The only 2 picks that resulted in positive points on Jan 4th were made by Kazie and Enon, with Kazie picking up 26 and Enon 5. Kazie didn't cheat, he just made the most correct picks on day 2 (4-2) and assigned points carefully! He only lost 6 points for W&M's loss and 15 for ours. He picked up the most points for the rest of the wins that day by confidently picking the wins by JMU and GMU, and by correctly picking Drexel over GA State on the road, a game where many had teh Panthers. Kaplan also went 4-2 on the 2nd set of games, but only picked up 2, 3 and 4 points for the JMU, GMU and Drexel wins, and lost 17 and 15 respectively on VCU and W&M.

Food for thought, what do you guys think?
 
Re: CAA Pick-'em Jan 2

Oh, and I don't know if Boom picked up on it when calculating it originally, but PAV did not assign any points to the DU/UD game that he correctly picked the winner of on Jan. 2nd!
