EDIT: The password was acting funky, so I’ve changed it to the much easier ‘rtr’ with all lowercase letters.
We’ve made it!
College Football’s regular season starts Thursday.
And, with its arrival, so too comes the smack-talking, valuable self-esteem, and reproductive opportunities that you can only enjoy by winning our 12th annual College Football Pick ‘Em Contest.
As with last year, we have a fantastic grand prize awaiting our worthy winner: A No. 13 Alabama jersey from Nike!
HOW TO PLAY:
Create your Yahoo Fantasy profile (or sign in,) then go to the following link: (or copy and paste https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/college/register/joingroup)
Group Name: Roll ‘Bama Roll 2019
When queried to “join a group” enter the following information:
Group ID#: 10291
Group Password rtr
All you have to do then is select your teams. This year, we’ll be picking the default Yahoo games as well as all games in the SEC.
The first season’s contests get under way this Thursday, and I’ve set all picks to be due 5 minutes before the first week’s game (usually Thurs.) We all have bad weeks, get busy, forget etc., so you will get to drop your lowest one-week of the 12-week season.
See League Rules on the Yahoo page or below for scoring details.
WHAT CAN I WIN?!
The Grand Prize winner shall receive a Nike-licensed game day Number 13 jersey suitable for framing or as part of your ‘Bama collection. I assure you, that number was chosen randomly and not at all in connection with a certain Heisman-favored Hawaiian and Alabama hero. /Wink.
This prize merely awaits you to prove you’re worthy of it.
