Yes, I believe Kevin is going to be running the college football pick 'em and is in the process of ironing out the details. I am sure something will be forthcoming in a few days letting everyone in on the details.

We could just do it more simply and use Yahoo College Pick 'Em if no one is able to do it on the board.

Just hang tight guys, there should be threads coming shortly for the college and pro pick 'ems. Kevin and Anthony will be running the contests and are working out the final logistics for this year's contest.

Yeah, we are just working out some final kinks. The Pick'em contest will be NEW and IMPROVED this year. Seriously. Stay tuned. P.S. No way would we move the CFB pick'ems to Yahoo. Too much of a tradition. The pick'ems are my baby. I'm sure Anthony feels the same way about the NFL pick'ems.

$4.99, doublee? Or $4.99 a minute via phone line? You could employ the super-slow speech mode a la the football betting hotline on The Simpsons.

It's up.

Marc,

In the future, please make sure I'm online before you promise I will do something "any minute now."
