Football God points and rules 2013

So,  here the rules for Football God 2013. Changes are in bold. 

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

This year it's going to be a little bit different.  Instead of naming all 8 of the BCS teams we're going to do it a little differently.  This category is going to be naming the four at-large bids.  The teams from the 6 major conferences all get automatic bids, and 2 of those end up in the championship.  So, this year, just name the four teams you think will get at large bids.  
So, for example.  If you have Oklahoma winning the Big 12, you would not put them as an at large bid.  Any questions on this new rule, let me know.  

 If you have a team in the BCS championship and they only get into a BCS game, you receive no points.  Also, you can't put a team in a BCS championship game, and a smaller BCS game like the rose bowl, or anything else like that.  

20 points each

Total = 80 points

National Championship

First you will need to predict the championship game. Each team you get correct will net you 20 points. Also pick the champion. Picking that correctly will net you 40 points.

Total possible 80

Also, this year we will try to predict the winner of more individual awards. ( 25 points each)

Heisman Trophy (Best Overall Player)
Fred Biletnikoff award (Best Receiver)
Doak Walker Award (Best Running back)
AP Coach of the year award
Chuck Bednarik Award (Defensive player)

Total 125 points

Grand total for college preseason predictions. 505

Pro Preseason Scoring

Pick the winner of the 8 divisions - 15 points a piece

Total = 120

Predict the four wildcard winners 15 points a piece

Total = 60

Pick the 4 teams that will play in the AFC and NFC championship games (20 points a piece)

Total = 80


Each team you get correct to play in the superbowl will net you 20 points a piece, picking the winner will get you 40 points

Total: 80

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)

Total = 150 points

Total = 490

Thats good for a grand total of 995 points available. That's about 200 points less than available last year.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.

Updated scoring opportunity.  We will be doing the bonus system again for having the most points each  week in the system.  However, it will be a little different this year.  In the weeks where both the college & pros are playing at the same time, there will be a 10 point bonus to the person who does the overall best on that week.  The weeks when only one of the two are playing, there will be a 5 point bonus.  

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.

Change:  The winner of the college pick'em will receive 40 bonus points.
The winner of the NFL pick 'em will win 40 bonus points.
IF YOU WIN BOTH you will receive 100 bonus points. 
Post season Bowl Pick 'em winner will receive a 20 point bonus
NFL post season does not award a bonus.

Fantasy Football

(6 team playoff format)

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 40 points

(4 team playoff format)

10 points for each win 
20 points for semi-final win
40 points for winning championship.

For those who make the playoffs for fantasy football.  Everybody will get an automatic 10 bonus points for making the fantasy football playoffs.  

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. 

Predictions are due for college football the Sunday before the first week of the season.  For the NFL it's the Sunday before their first game.
