Oh and here are the rules, just to reiterate:

You may join at anytime, even after the season has started, though once a deadline has passed for a week, you may not make picks for that week
You may make picks for any game up to 5 minutes prior to the start of each game. 1
Admin's and moderators will NOT change your picks for you if you make a mistake. Verify that you have the correct teams picked. IF YOU FORGET YOUR PICKS, YOU ARE SCREWED. YOU HAVE A FULL WEEK TO MAKE PICKS, DONT COMPLAIN IF YOU FORGOT.
There are no weekly winners, only one single seasonal winner.
Tie-breakers will be determined upon who has the closest total scores of all Monday Night Football games combined. There are 17 Monday Night Football games (2 on opening weekend, 1 every other week except the last week). Choosing the total score of all MNF games and getting closest to the actual total score will win the tiebreaker.
The Leaderboard will only show the top 50 players. Due to the nature of the number of users, it is not feasible to have that many people listed. IF you are not listed in the top 50 go to Pickem Home and your score if greater than 0 will be listed at the top.
Feel free to send your complaints to Taco John, under no circumstances are you to complain to Rock Chalk. He doesn't care

Oh and one last thing.

I do apologize to all for the lack of any improvements to the system this year. After last year, I did get some great feedback and stuff to implement but I had to prepare to move from CO back to TX, buy a house, move a family, start a new job, get settled in, mow the lawn on weekends, plot to take over the world, etc. I am a very busy man and quite simply, I completely forgot about the pickem league after it was done with.

Taco permitting, I will do my best to make amends and implement some of the features that have been suggested.

One popular feature people have requested is an "Against The Spread" league. Sounds awesome, but the practicality of this is unfeasible. While theoretically I could cURL the URL of a place that keeps spreads and regex out the spreads for each game, it would be a nightmarish hassle (and if you have any idea of what regular expressions are and how complex they can be then you know what the flagnog Im talking about). The other solution is to manually put in the spreads that come out on Tuesday of every week. Since we cannot count on our mods to even moderate teh forums properly, much less figure out spreads this is unrealistic as well.

"Team" leagues do sound fun though, where teams of n number of people make up a team and compete against n number of teams in a league and that would be possible.

Eventually Im going to set the timestamps to show the time of the game in your profile's timezone setting instead of just "Eastern".

Any other feedback would be appreciated, please however, send your complaints to Taco, as I said above, I really don't give a **** if you dont like it.

It would be nice if the receivers held on to the ball. Both QBs had let downs from their WRs. Statistically KU won that game pretty handily. Unfortunately the ONE statistic they sucked at was turnovers adn that is a very key stat.

*shrug* I didnt expect much from my team this year. Or any year for that matter. Winning in football is a bonus, but certainly not expected.

Good eye.

I had issues with Week 5 when building the schedule for some reason.
