Top 25 Pool
« on: November 03, 2017, 09:36:07 pm »
New pool!

Here's the idea. The preseason Top 25 has now been released. The object is to pick a team NOT in the preseason poll who received ANY votes, including Oswego St, who received just one vote. 

Then, throughout the season, we'll keep track if any of the teams get votes and sustain Top 25 status. At the end of the season, we'll have 2 winners. The poster who picked the team who garnered the most votes during the season and the team who finished the highest in the final poll (the one after the tourney is complete).   

Hopefully we can even get some of those "experts" to play since all you have to do is pick a team before the season starts and that's all you have to do!

Going with them because of fairly easy early schedule that should see them have a strong start and time for everyone to get settled before the tough games.

They received votes in the preseason poll, so they are ineligible. You have to pick a team that didn't receive ANY votes.

There are 50 teams that received votes in the preseason poll,  NONE of those teams are eligible for the pool.

Ah... was confusing to figure out what you said... thought you meant only teams that had received votes but not Top 25. Back to pondering

My diploma would be revoked if I took anyone but IWU! ;D

(Besides, augie77 beat me to Alma. :(  But I probably would have gone with IWU anyway. :P)

For that one voter who had NWU as number 25 on their poll, you stole my pick for this pool!  ;) ;D
