Alright folks, MVFC Pigskin Parlay (yet another pick'em game) is back again for 2015. Unless I can be convinced otherwise, I am doing just the one conference (Missouri Valley) contest this year although there will be a few games to pick from other conferences. Lots of new stuff this year. The game pick form has been streamlined and made more friendly on mobile devices. Also, you can now augment your weekly game pick points with a few extra bonus referral reward points by getting some of your family, friends and colleagues to join in. The pick form now includes the Massey Matchup spread for all games just in case you need a little extra help. Last year, we had a Survivor contest and it returns in Week #5 with a bevy of other "sidebet" games along the way that will always keep you on your toes. We kick off the season with a sidebet called Quick Draw McGraw that matches your pick wits and finger dexterity skills against the likes of MisterMassey and the other players. With a separate sidebet game always in play, there will be at least two $25 e-gift certificate winners each and every week. Tentatively, I am considering a special "Social Group Shootout" contest for Week #7 ($100 group reward) if there are a few reasonably-sized referral groups in the player mix. The top three finishers in the regular season point total race will receive $100, $75, and $50. And of course, we will finish off the season with an FCS Playoff Pool (rewards TBD) where hopefully two Missouri Valley teams will once again square off to take home all of the marbles.

Also new this year, I will not be at all picky when it comes to a spot for the contest winners to cash in their victory rewards. The registration page includes a long list, among them favorites for guys and gals alike. If your favorite is not there, I will do my best to get you and/or your reward where you would like you/it to go, including charitable organizations in your name.

That is all. I hope to see a few of you in the contest this year. Here is the link to the web page to get started (click on "Register/Submit Week 1 Predictions" and then "Register Now"):

ST, if you could put this link at top level, I would appreciate it.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

I just registered and filled out my picks. I have to say this is the most creative pick em contest I have ever been apart of. Right now I'm in two other pick em contests along with this one and they are all something different. This will be my first year with your pick em. Thanks for setting this up and hosting this contest.

Last call to earn those extra referral reward points. This week's sidebet game is for the dog lovers and stadium aficionados (Where's Chance). I have also settled on the reward for FCS Playoff Bracket Pool and it will be $100 PLUS $10 for each week played during the regular season.
