    College Football Survivor game

    It is time to play College Football Survivor. I donít have any Cyclone Fanatic credits to offer, but since I want to play, I am willing to run the game for anyone else who wants to play. Maybe CW will kick in some credits once we get going.

    Here are the rules:

    1. Pick an unbeaten FBS team each week that you think will win (outright, no spreads) but posting a reply in this thread. If the team you pick wins, you survive to the next week. I will try to post a list of eligible games early each week.

    2. The team you pick must be playing against another FBS team (no FCS or Division 2).

    3. You can only pick a team once for the season. Donít worry about conference championships (or bowl games). No one made it that far last year, but if anyone does, we will have a special contest for those who are still in.

    4. Make your picks by 11am CT on Saturday. However, if you pick a team that plays earlier, you must post your pick before that game begins.

    5. If you change your mind about a pick, you must post the new pick by 11am CT on Saturday as long as the game you originally picked and the new one havenít started. Donít edit your posts, but just make a new reply and make clear that you are making a correction to an earlier post.

    6. If you have any questions, concerns, or problems, post them in the thread or send a private message to me as commissioner.

    Have fun.

    Re: College Football Survivor game

    Can I pick the same team as someone else (CyCash). I was also going to pick UCF, but if I can't, South Carolina.

    You can pick the same team as someone else, but once you pick a team, you can't pick them again.

    you can pick the same team as me.

    Also, I think Villanova is still d2? It says they are CAA. I was thinking of picking Temple but didn't want any confusion

    Re: College Football Survivor game

    UCF is a good bet because I dont really know when I would pick them again. Wanna save South Carolina for a later date.

    So we finally gave up on RhoadsRage starting the FBS Suicide game again this year. I was getting a little nervous with only 1 week left.

    He didn't reply to my PMs and I haven't even seen him on CF this year, so I thought I would just go ahead and start it. Just didn't seem right to start the week before the first game without it.
