In post #1 of this thread, it indicates the contest starts Aug 29th.

RYP has 2 of the games prior to that date available to pick from:
August 26th Vandy/Hawaii and USC/San Jose

  • Are we allowed to pick from those two "early" games as part of our pick of 7.
  • Also, similar to the NFL, do we have to pick all 7 at the same time or is it slightly different for CFB contest?

Thanks for the contests LT/BMR.

My bad, I did not realize when I started thread that Week 0 was included since first deadline for picks is September 2nd.

What are the rules for betting on games with no line? "N/A"?
They are Not Available, Those are Power 5 vs. FCS schools
I think it needs to be monitored because it looks like it allows you to make one of the N/A games as a selection with no point spread. We need to make sure no one can pick these N/A games on a weekly basis.

WOW. We are following up with RYP today, but pretty sure if they can't prevent picking an N/A doing so is an auto-loss as play will not get graded. Let's see what their response is first though,

Correct. Should be an auto loss if someone is able to select a N/A game with no spread as one of their 7 picks. It would obviously foul up the contest if several were selecting games that would be 40-point plus spreads as pick ems and getting credit for them.

Correct, but if they are indeed auto-losses, then a good thing if they can't prevent picking them. I am still awaiting word.
