2015 SEC Basketball Pick 'Ems Contest

30 posts in this topic

SECTalk.com will host an SEC basketball pick 'ems contest for 2015:

It's a little early, but I'm going ahead and posting this now so that everyone is aware of the SEC Basketball Pick 'Ems. The basketball season begins in November, but this year I elected to only do the SEC matchups in the Basketball Pick 'Ems. There are several reasons for this, but the main reason is that when we include selective games in November and December, we have very limited participation. I expect that is due to the fact that football is still going on and people choose to focus on that. I'm hoping that by starting the SEC Basketball Pick 'Ems with the SEC matchups in January after football season is over that we'll get more participation.

This is not a spread based contest. You simply pick the winner of each game. You can get to the Pick 'Ems by clicking the Pick 'Ems tab at the top of the page. Make sure when you make your picks, you remember to click “Submit Picks” at the bottom of the week’s pick ‘ems. If you want to make changes to your picks prior to the pick ‘ems closing for each game, you can make changes and click “Submit Picks” again, and it keeps your latest changes in the system.

In the past, I’ve had people sometimes tell me that they forgot to make their picks after the pick ‘ems closed and asked me to make their picks for them. I CANNOT make your picks for you. So, make sure to get them in prior to closing. One thing I do (and recommend you do the same) is make several week’s picks in advance to make sure I don’t miss a week. After all, you can still go back and make changes right up until closing, even if you’ve already entered your picks.

Picking Schedule

The first group of games start on January 6-8. Make sure to make the pick for those games prior to tip off of each game. Game times within the pick 'ems will be adjusted once official game times are announced (some already are).

The bottom line is that it's up to you to keep up and get your picks in before closing,

Participation

Any registered user may register in any and all contests. At this point, we're not sure if prizes will be offered, but at a minimum you can obtain bragging rights. If prize(s) are offered, it will be posted in here at a later date.

Thanks for reading, and good luck to everyone.

I missed the Arkansas/UGA game last night. I took UGA thinking it would be tight, but picking UGA since they were at home and Arkansas usually struggles on the road.

I can't believe MGF picked it. I thought he had lost his mind this week with his picks. He also hit ut over SC. However, he did miss on Ole Miss and MO. Hope he's right on Bama, although I wouldn't pick Bama over the top HS team in Arkansas right now.

Two of the ones I missed Saturday were me just fat thumbing the wrong team for some reason. Meh. Makes it more interesting down the stretch.

If I had not missed the first two pick'ems (14 total games) I probably would have been right up there challenging for the top spot.

Oh well...

Wouldn't surprise me if @@GAMECOCK_FAN rallies to win it all & adds another championship banner to the collection

Probably not. After all, you took home the NFL Pick 'Ems championship this year. And 2 games is going to be hard to make up on you.

      Also will never tell you it's got a headache when you get a few beers in you and decide to throw some meat in it...   I bought a Kamado knockoff a few years ago and love it. My egg didn't survive the move back to Mississippi and I just couldn't pull the trigger on another. For big grillin and smoking I built my own out of an old propane tank cut down by 1/3rd. Can do about ten Boston butts at a time. Smoked a half-dozen and pulled them for the fire dept and ems this past Wednesday. Did 24 half chickens at once last fall. Drawback is it takes a pile of charcoal to get it hot and keep it going.

      Been way too long but we finally got a 5* commitment. Obviously a long way to go but hopefully we can hold on to him. This class really could end up being something special. https://southcarolina.rivals.com/news/five-star-defensive-end-zacch-pickens-commits-to-gamecocks   The state's top overall prospect decided not to wait. Originally planning to make his decision towards the end of his senior season, Anderson (S.C.) T.L. Hanna class of 2019 five-star defensive end  Zacch Pickens  committed to South Carolina Friday, according to sources at his spring game.   It was a team recruiting effort from the Gamecocks as head coach Will Muschamp, defensive line coach Lance Thompson, defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson and linebackers coach Coleman Hutzler all had a strong role in landing the nation's No. 16 overall prospect. Pickens was last on South Carolina's campus earlier this spring for a cookout event. Pickens, considered the No. 3 strongside defensive end in the country by Rivals, chooses South Carolina over offers from Alabama, Florida State, Clemson, Georgia, Nebraska, North Carolina, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech and West Forest.  It was believed throughout the process that Clemson and Georgia were the two other top contenders. Pickens is the 12th commitment to Carolina's 2019 class.       This commitment bumps us up to #8 for the time being.

      Go back and read the article and it’s obvious. McCain can summon congress to work on a bipartisan healthcare bill? How long has he had to work on it? And what did he do, cast his vote to spit in the face of the bill he and republicans had all that time to work on. He can pass tax reform to create jobs? That’s already been done. He can continue his leadership on immigration reform and global warming? Just lol. Just admit that McCain spoke out against Trump on some issues so now he’s a hero to you when you wouldn’t have given him a second thought otherwise.
