Want to play Pig Skin Pick Em? Want to play Pig Skin Pick Em against your fellow PSU bethren? You've come to the right thread! Welcome to the 2012 PSU Pig Skin Pick Em Sign Up Thread!

Purpose:
This thread's purpose is to see how many members will play PSU Pig Skin Pick Em this year and if we'll even have a competition this year. Last year, only 3 members played. I'm hoping with this year's prizes and the amount of active NFL fans on PSU, we can get more participates.

Sponsor:
The Black Wolf

Prizes:
Fun
Bragging Rights
NFL Team Cap (MAYBE)
NFL related or NFL Team Avatar and Sig set


What is Pig Skin Pick Em?
Pig Skin Pick Em is a game in which players "pick" or predict the winners of NFL regular season games. If you predict the correct winner of a matchup, you get 1 point. You get a point for each game you pick correctly. Here is an example:
Bengals vs Ravens. Bob picks Ravens and Sam picks Bengals. The game plays out that Sunday and Baltimore wins. Bob gets 1 point and Sam gets nothing for that matchup.

When does Pig Skin Pick Em Begin?
September 5th, 2012

What is the deadline to sign up for PSU Pig Skin Pick Em?
September 1st (Really it's September 5th, but I don't recommend cutting it that close. At one point, sign up becomes unable)

How do you win?
The player with the most points at the end of the NFL regular season will win both of the prizes.

How do I sign up?
To sign up or communicate your intentions to play, just post in this thread stating that you want to play this Fall.

Any questions, just ask in this thread or pm me. :D

(PS. Fantasy Football registrations are open. Are we going to start a PSU one?)[/QUOTE]

About fantasy football, someone else may start it. I'm not because I dislike fantasy football.

[QUOTE="$Greatness$, post: 5841823]I'm in, shorty!

But... shouldn't be Madden '14 since we'll be doing the pick 'em during the '13 season? :lol:[/QUOTE]

The people voted and they want this year's Madden. They'd rather not wait a year for the prize.

[QUOTE="RaY_210, post: 5843304]I likely would've done it without them. But they are a nice plus :)[/QUOTE]

That's good to hear. :) It's a fun game and you get bragging rights, so I doubt you will regret playing.

[QUOTE="The Black Wolf, post: 5855371]No updates. Everything is still the same.

So as you guys know, NFL training camps open this month. I definitely recommend the members playing this game keep up with injuries from training camp, especially year ending injuries. One player may or may not impact a whole team.

Then you've got both rookies and vets in contract situations and it pays to keep up with who and who is not playing in 2012. You never know, players like Forte and Rice could hold out until the 8th week of the season.

I will post some sites to check and keep up with everything on Sunday.

Honestly I think this is about it. We are the only ones who frequent the NFL thread. I'll let BoyFromOldSchool about it. He will probably play although he doesn't get on PSU a lot.

Thank you. :)

There's this member called Tribunal who posted in the college football thread. I wonder if he'd be interested . . .

I remember having way more football fans back in the day.

What gives? The NFL thread used to be so active. I know members come and go, but surely there are still NFL fans that are on the regular?

YOU DON'T KNOW ME OR WHAT I'M ABOUT.

I'm in.

I shouldn't be deploying for the next several months so I should be good for this.

It's the offseason. I know I don't keep up with football on a normal basis at this time.
