    Week 12 College Football Survivor Game

    Our game has come down to a three-way tie for 1st Place all of whom have only K-State left to pick:

    cychosis Conn Indiana Texas Tech Miss St Northwestern La Tech Florida Oregon St Oregon Ohio St Notre Dame
    CycloneNation18 Stanford Ohio Miss St WV Northwestern Oregon St. Florida Rutgers Oregon Ohio St Notre Dame
    cyguytillidie UCF Indiana Texas Tech Ohio St TCU La Tech Rutgers Miss St Oregon Louisville Notre Dame

    There is also a two-way tie for 2nd Place by those who never picked a losing team, but ran out of eligible teams from which to pick:

    isutamu WV Texas Texas Tech Ohio St S. Carolina Kansas State Florida Miss St Oregon Louisville Notre Dame
    mikeiastat UCF Texas Tech Kansas State Georgia S. Carolina Oregon St. Florida Miss St Oregon Louisville Notre Dame

    So, I am proposing two forms of tie-breaker. If the three tied for 1st Place agree on a tie-breaker, we will use it for them. Similarly, if the two tied for 2nd place agree on a tie-breaker, we will use it for them. We can take a few days to discuss it. Anyone can offer their opinions, but I'm especially interested in hearing from those tied for 1st and 2nd. If we don't have a consensus by Wednesday night, I will make an executive decision.

    Option 1: Pick the winner in a game between closely ranked rivals. Week 12 would be USC at UCLA. If there is still a tie, then Week 13 would be Florida at Florida State, South Carolina at Clemson, and Stanford at UCLA (winner gets the most correct). Picks would be made by PM and not posted until after the games are underway. This option seems to fit the nature of the game being about picking winners.

    Option 2: Pick the total points in the K-State game. Or the points by K-State. Or the margin of victory. This option is very likely to bring the game to a close next week.

    What do you think?




    NOTE: I overlooked the fact that mikeiastat still has Ohio State to pick during Week 12. cychosis, CycloneNation18, cyguytillidie still have K-State. So, we have to let this week play out before we focus on a tie-breaker.

    Option 3: Pick the number of points by which Alabama beats Auburn! That could bring some nice anti-Chizik sentiment into the game.

    Re: Week 12 College Football Survivor Game

    CW has done something special to spice up the end of our game. He is going to give CyCash to the Winners and Runner-Ups!

    Whoever wins the tie-breaker among the three tied for 1st Place (cychosis, CycloneNation18, cyguytillidie) will get 500k in CyCash. The other two will get 125k.

    And the two who never picked a loser, but ran out of teams to pick (isutamu, mikeiastate) will get 100k each.

    Thanks CW.

    Here are some thoughts from cyguytillidie and cychosis. What do you think CycloneNation18?

    Stanford @ Oregon

    Rutgers @ Cincinnati
    Texas Tech @ Oklahoma State
    Ohio @ Ball State or Toledo @ Northern Illinois
    Ohio State @ Wisconsin
    Duke @ Georgia Tech
    Syracuse @ Mizzou

    If CycloneNation18 concurs, then we can go with something like this for you three to determine the ultimate 1st place finisher.

    Re: Week 12 College Football Survivor Game

    Am I missing something or am I not supposed to still be in. I think I should still have Ohio State left in my picks. Did they lose and I miss it?

    Re: Week 12 College Football Survivor Game

    It makes me sick to pick them, but I suppose I'll get it out of the way to make it official.
    I think I have

    TOSSU this weekend.

    You are correct. I must have overlooked you because I saw that you had already picked K-State. Sorry about that.

    This extends the game another week because it is now possible for some to pick winners and others not. So, we have to wait another week before we utilize the tie-breaker.

    So, the other three automatically pick K-State and you pick Ohio State. Then, we will see what happens and probably address the tie-breaker the following week.

    Will Ohio State (and mikeiastate) survive? Wisconsin just scored a TD with :08 left!
