Just curious if im missing something or if the program just goofed but i noticed that out of the people that had 45 pts for texas that the groups that were off by more pts on okie score were ahead of me/huck/ghost who were only off by 3 on okie score 

So a prediction that was 45-37 has more points than my 45-27...same texas score but closer on the okie st score

Spread difference counts more (2 pts) than total points difference (1 pt). On your examples above:

 

45-37 = 8 pt spread and 82 total points

 

45-27 = 18 pt spread and 72 total points

 

Actual score 36-30 = 6 pt spread and 66 total points.

 

So:

 

45-37 = 2(8-6) + 1(82-66) = 20 pt deduction

 

45-27 = 2(18-6) + 1(72-66) = 30 pt deduction

And my name starts with an "A", so clearly I'm the winner.

Well F-me.

After a reboot, the contest site wants me to login... but no combination of username or email and password works....  No automated way to reset the pw.

Any chance of whacking the pw on  my contest acct?

Link doesn’t look normal to me. The blanks for entry are not there, nor are the previous weeks entries, etc.

Predicted 41-20.. It was 42-24 until the final minute garbage time WVU TD fucked me into 4th in the paying pool.

You guys should thank me for always entering the pay pool in these contests because I’m basically just giving you my money. Next year I’m just going to video myself lighting my money on fire and post it.

the formula works out weird. 

Consider the WV game.  Score 42-31

Here's a couple of the guesses (from results page).  16 is a better  prediction than 17.   He's 4 points closer on the Texas score, and the same on the WV score, but they get the same points?  Seems goofy.  

 

16 dnaguy (41 - 27) 189  
17 Iguana (37 - 27)

189

actual margin = 11
actual total = 73

start with 200, subtract 2 for each point off on margin, 1 point per total off

dna guy
--margin = 14
--total = 68

margin off by 3, total off by 5,   200 - (2x3) - 5 = 189

iguana
--margin = 10
--total = 64

margin off by 1, total off by 9, 200 - (1x2) - 9 = 189

Any reason why a prediction wouldn't be saved? Put in my prediction either Thursday or Friday, checked again yesterday when the game ended to see if the scores had been updated yet. Both times my prediction (38-24) showed but now it shows I didn't make one... Not like I've got money on it or anything but still confusing

I feel your pain, I predicted 41-24 - all it took to ruin my day was 2 4th down conversion leading to a meaningless score.
Oh well - always next week.
Fuck OU (still working out all the maths to get my picks in)

Yeah, 7 of us had 42-24.  Should have known Herman can't win a conference game by 3 scores.

Just "saved" my pick again but I'm putting it here too in case there's any fuckery again.

I set up a spreadsheet for my game picks so that I can track my score immediately after the games.  (No, I don't have a life.)  I used the equation in the first post in the thread, and I have a glitch or something that I can't figure out.  All of the points for the games match the website except the points for the LSU game.  The website shows that I got 131 points for that prediction, but my spreadsheet shows 143 points.  Where am I messing up?

Also, when will the ousucks game results be posted?
