2011 Scoring

Football God 2011 Scoring

Pre Season Predictions.

I'll send you guys a spread sheet on the predictions as soon as I get microsoft word to stop being a faggggggggggggggggggg.
Obviously, this is the best chance to set yourself apart from everybody else. I'll need everybody's predictions in for College, which is September 1st. Here are the college categories.

20 points if you predict the winner of each of the 11 confrences. These are:

Big 10
Big 12
Big East
Pac 10
Sun Belt
Conference USA
Mountain West

Total: 220 points

Bowl Games

Name the 8 teams that will be in the BCS Bowls (not including National Champion)

15 points each

Total = 120 points

National Championship

First you will need to predict the championship game. Each team you get correct will net you 30 points. Also pick the champion. Picking that correctly will net you 50 points.

Total possible 110

Also, this year we will try to predict the winner of more individual awards. Those will be
Heisman Trophy
Davey O'Brien Award (Best QB)
Doak Walker Award (Best Running back)
AP Coach of the year award
Chuck Bednarik Award (Defensive player)

Total 150 points

Grand total for college preseason predictions. 600

Pro Preseason Scoring

Pick the winner of the 8 divisions - 20 points a piece

Total = 160

Predict the four wildcard winners 20 points a piece

Total = 80

Pick the 4 teams that will play in the AFC and NFC championship games (25 points a piece)

Total = 100


Each team you get correct to play in the superbowl will net you 30 points a piece, picking the winner will get you 50 points

Total: 110

NFL individual awards

Each of these that you predict will net you 25 points

Coach of the year
Offensive POY (player of the year)
Defensive POY
Off ROY (rookie of the year)
Comeback player of the year

Total = 150 points


Thats good for a grand total of 1200 points available. That's more than last year, but also a lot less than two years ago when we had about 2000 available points in the predictions.

If you have any troubles figuring out some of the college stuff, just look up people's predictions online. Also, I'm watching sports center right now and Eric Allen looks a lot like a black version of red skull, when he's in HD. Creepy. Also someone please check my math for me, I'm not trying to stress over this.

Pick 'Em Scoring

Pretty simple here, I'm setting up a pick 'em league. You make picks. You get one point for each pick, this is for pro and college picks. College picks are done against the spread, while Pro games are picked straight up.

For college and Pros put together that gets you around 500 possible points.

New Scoring Chance: The person who has the highest combined score between NFL and college in the regular season every week will win a 5 point bonus. I want to reward those who do the best each week. So, we will try this.

For the bowl games, those are worth 2 points a piece. The BCS games are worth 5 points. The Championship Game is worth 10 points.

For the NFL playoffs, the Wild Card and Divisional Round of the playoffs are worth 5 points each
The AFC Championsip is worth 10 points. The Superbowl is worth 15.

Also the winner of the regular season NFL receives a 25 point bonus
Winner of the College Football Pick 'em receives a 25 point bonus
Post season Bowl Pick 'em winner will receive a 10 point bonus
NFL post season does not award a bonus.

Fantasy Football

So, Fantasy Football awards the least amount of points, but usually has the biggest division between first and last. Last Year Folden and I scored about 100 points more than Shawn, which is a bigger gap than the Pick 'em usually awards. So we will keep scoring on that basically the same

10 points for each win. 14 games
If you get a first round bye you get 20 points
If you win the first round you get 20 points
If you win the Semi-finals you get 20 points
If you win the Championship you get 30 points

Also, back to the predictions, if you have a team in the championship game in college, but they make a BCS bowl, that does not count as a point for you. Likewise, if you have a team in a BCS game, but they make the National Championship, you don't get any points.

I believe that's everything. If you have any questions on anything, how keepers work for Fantasy Football, any of the rule changes, as far as being dropped if you don't change your roster, or any concerns at all let me know.

If you go perfect you would win 230 points.
