I thought I would get the thread started a bit earlier this year in hopes of getting as many people as possible playing.

Here is the general format:

We pick 15 games each week, spread throughout the conferences.
Each game in the first half of the season will be worth 2 points.
Each game in the second half of the season will be worth 3 points.
Each series in the Conference Tournaments will be worth 4 points.
Regional Semifinals will be worth 3 points.
Regional Finals will be worth 4 points.
Frozen Four Semifinals will be worth 6 points.
Frozen Four Championship will be worth 8 points.

There will be 1 bonus question each week.
The bonus question will range between 5-10 points.
The bonus question will be scored depending on how close you are to the actual result (i.e. NOT all or nothing).

I will have a volunteer panel.
They will have three primary functions:
1) To submit 4-5 games from their specific conference (i.e. the ECAC panelist will submit 4-5 games featuring ECAC teams) by 11:59pm Eastern on Sunday each week;
2) To help collect/input/compute data using an excel spreadsheet (likely through googledocs, but I'm open to other ideas);
3) To help resolve any disputes that come up

The current volunteer panel is:

Hockey East: FiveHole12
ECAC: drshoen
Wildcard: HoosierPioneer, SiouxfaininSeattle, and SweeneyHawksHockey

For those volunteering, if you can no longer volunteer (or simply don't want to) let me know ASAP. I'll be assigning the wildcard volunteers to conferences this week.

The first week of games that we will predict for will be for the Weekend of October 9/10 (first week of meaningful games). That should give us time to get everything set up this week in preparation for the first week of games.

So here are the conferences for our volunteer panel:

Hockey East: FiveHole12
ECAC: drshoen
NCHC: HoosierPioneer
B1G: SweeneyHawksHockey
WCHA: SiouxfaninSeattle
Atlantic: (still open)

For those on the panel, if you could please have your 4-5 selections that you would like to see as games of the week featuring teams from your conference ready by Sunday night. Please email/PM me those picks.

For those planning on participating, the games for Week 1 will be available Tuesday, October 7th by 9:00pm Eastern. Obviously, I'll post again in here with what those games are.

Hopefully we get a good turnout this year.

Anyone know if FS23 is okay? Looks like the NCAA Pickem may be postponed until next week.

I heard they made a wrong turn, ended up in tupelo. Not sure when the bail hearing will be. ;):D

I am fine. I didn't receive any games from our panel though.

Really? That is interesting. I sent mine through the "Send E-mail" link when I click on your profile. I guess that didn't work.

Weird. Perhaps we need a new way to send the picks, as I didn't receive any of them.

For next week, send them to the following email address: tseibel15@law.du.edu

For this week, I'll post the games, and hopefully people will have enough time to submit...

It must not be working. For next week, try sending them to the email that I posted earlier. That should fix the issue. If for whatever reason I don't have next week's picks Monday morning, I'll post here so we don't have a repeat of the same issue.
