WJMorris3 Posted August 20, 2004 Share Posted August 20, 2004 Okay, I guess I can safely start a contest now. I've been doing this contest every year for three years now, so... here goes.Your job is to pick the 8 Division I-A college football teams you think will have the best season according to my point scale. Each game a team plays will either gain or lose them points on the following scale.OFFENSEEach point scored = 1At least 300 passing yards = 5At least 200 rushing yards = 5Each sack = -1Each turnover = -1DEFENSELess than 150 passing yards allowed = 5Less than 100 passing yards allowed = 5Each sack = 1Each turnover = 1IN GENERALWin = 5 (10 if shutout)Loss = -5 (-10 if shutout)Win over top 25 team:Ranked higher: 20Ranked the same: 15Ranked lower: 10In addition, if your team plays against a Division I-AA team, your team will receive no points for the win, and will receive double the penalty for the loss. We'll take the best ten games for each team, so each team gets at least one game that won't count, and perhaps as many as four.Just so that everyone doesn't pick all the best teams, the following restrictions must be followed while picking your team.No more than one team per conferenceNo more than one team in the preseason top 5No more than three teams in the preseason top 15No more than five teams in the preseason top 25No more than five teams from BCS conferences (Notre Dame counts as a BCS team)The top 25 that will be used during the season is a composite top 25, combining the AP poll and the ESPN poll. Here is the preseason top 25.1. Southern California2. Oklahoma3. Louisiana St4. Georgia5. Miami (FL)6. Florida St7. Michigan8. Texas9. Ohio St10. West Virginia11. Florida12. Kansas St13.
