    Big 12 elimination competition WEEK THREE!

    Deadline is Sat, Oct 19, 11 am CST. Texas and KSU on BYE

    TCU at Oklahoma State
    Texas Tech at West Virginia
    Oklahoma at Kansas
    Iowa State at Baylor

    The survivors from last week are below. Remember to pick a new team in week 3,(different than weeks 1 & 2). Be mindful of the "Can't pick" choice of the week, because you can't pick against a team in consecutive weeks.

    Re: Big 12 elimination competition WEEK THREE!

    Well damn, i can't pick Kansas, that really limits my options.

    Strategy-wise Oklahoma and Baylor are slam dunks but i kinda want to save them for later weeks.

    I cant pick Tech and im not sure I want to pick WVU over them. (and on a long-term strategy note, it sucks that ISU and WVU play kansas in consecutive weeks)

    That leaves the option of picking the TCU-OSU line, or burning a guarantee.

    Yeah I did snicker at the few guys that had KU on their list last week. Tragedy indeed! Sooner or later they will break that 2 dozen or whatever conf losing streak. As long as it's not in Ames this year....

    TCU

    On a side note. What happens if you get to the last week and there are no teams you are able to pick because you have already picked them or picked against someone the week before. Are you eliminated?

    It looks like I have no choice but to pick OSU. Otherwise, I'd be hoping for a big upset.

    Really. Never thought about doing that.

    Basically that is the point of the question. Everyone has to pick one game where KU is going to win. So it is the last week of the season and all you have left is KU who does not play. Or you pick KU in a game and get eliminated before the last week.

    How will that be handled?

    But you should be able to plan your picks so you don't have to worry about picking against a team the last two weeks. If this really goes that far, we'll end up with a lot of people testing their loyalty and have to pick KU over ISU or forfeit.

    You might want to look at the schedule. KU's last game is against KSU with one more week of games after that for OU OSU UT and BU.
