  • 2014 Pick Em Contest--Round 1, Jan 1 & 2 Games

    Contest is under new administration, so take it easy on me. Same rules as in prior years: You get ten (10) points to play with for each set of Valley games. You must put at least one point but no more than 4 points on each game. Changes in predictions are allowed as long as they are made before tip off of the first game. I will keep score throughout the year. Join now! Late comers will be allowed but of course they will be behind on points for the year.

    Once again we will have a regular season and a post season contest. To participate in the post season contest your final score must be one of the ten best point scores including ties. In the past this means several more than ten get to participate in the post season tournament contest. So if you get off to a poor start, don't give up! I will donate a $25 Outback Steakhouse gift card for the regular season contest. If you wish to donate a prize, please send me a PM. Let's continue the tradition of making our MVC Pick Em Contest the best! Many thanks to @tropicalshox for his time and effort in running the Contest in prior years.

    This round's games (first one starts Wednesday, January 1st at 2:05 pm, Central time):

    LOY @ INS
    BRAD @ UNI
    EVAN @ DRAKE
    ILS @ MSU
    WSU @ SIU

    My picks:

    INS 3
    UNI 1
    DRAKE 1
    MSU 1
    WSU 4

    Add your picks to this thread.

    Remember to have all your picks in before the tip off of the first game, or expect to receive no points for the set of games. Good luck!

      "Ralph Miller was one of the finest coaches in the history of intercollegiate basketball. His teams were always fundamentally sound, team oriented, well conditioned, and ran both their offense and defense with great patience. I know of no coach whose teams competed against his, whether it be at Wichita State, Iowa, or Oregon State, who did not have great respect for him."—John Wooden

                          I will donate the champion prize. You cannot eat it, but I guess you could trade it for a meal. It has no WSU colors, but it is all WSU. Wheat? Yes. Shock? Sometimes. It will probably not get you into any WSU games. Monetary value is >$100. Sentimental Value for shocker fans? Priceless.

                          I will post pics at a later date.

                            Please revise your point totals. Total should come out to 10 :)
