Hogville.net CFB Pick'em
« on: August 05, 2019, 09:56:28 pm »

Hogville.net will once again do a weekly college football pick 'em in 2019. All you need to do to participate is to follow this link:

https://bit.ly/2KSdvza

When you click on that link, it will take you to "Top 15 College Football Pickoff." You will see the following message near the top of the page: "New Users: If you're a new user, please Create a Profile to join the fun. Existing Users: If you are an existing user, please login above." All of you are "New Users" until you create your account, because this Pick'em is not tied to your Hogville username and password.
 
The old Football Pick'em link at the top of MMQB is dead, but we will replace it with the new one eventually.

You can pick each game up until kick-off. If you do not pick a game, the computer will select the most picked answer for you. All times are Central.       

If anyone has any questions, please either post them in this thread or PM me and I will be glad to help.

Hey Guys and Girls...sorry for delay on this Wilson Hog is always on it, but was waiting on a new build out that is prettier and should be easier for you to use!!!
With that being said

THE NEW Pickems is not connected to your current HOGVILLE ACCOUNT & IF YOU RESET YOUR PASSWORD CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER FOR EMAIL FROM THE CONTEST PROVIDER SECOND STREET! We have a BIG national prize, Weekly prizes and as always the $$$ for end of season!!!
 
Pick who you think will win each game before the cutoff time >> https://bit.ly/2KSdvza

If you have any issues or see any bugs, let us know ASAP and we will get fixed

If you're working off a tablet, the adds are covering the right side of the screen.  It is pretty hard to decipher.

...but I corrected my picks this morning off my desk top.

When I click the football link it appears there are a lot of hoops to jump through.  Not sure how many are going to battle tha.  Perhaps participation will be good.

Those are just standard rules we have to use, anyone that registers can win in-state or out. I gurantee you if you win we will mail you your prize pack or gift cards of you win overall. And if you win National prizes they come from our contest provider. So what do you have to lose... $0.00?!?! Yep that's all you have to lose is absolutely nothing

sounds like the end of hogville pickum's as we knew it. 

Yeah.  I can’t remember all my login and passwords for work and apps and on and I’m so probably not going to jump on this one.

That said hope someone from here wins the whole thing!

were probably just being old coots about it, haha, but I kinda prefer the old clunky system with no prizes.

seeing a lot of the same familiar members doing well year after year, who jumps out to the lead, who can hang on or choke at the end, the year long horse was a fun aspect of it. I never won one, but was in a few until the end. lots of fun.

Probably just too big a pain in the butt for someone to manually run it and settle disputes and such, that's why I give a sincere thanks for the years past efforts in presenting the game for us.

I think the pinnacle of the pick-ems was about 5 years ago or so, when there was a small cash prize AND
they'd include the Arkansas game, (that was always such a big, fun X-factor to include the Hogs each week)  I think around 500-600 would be playing back in those days.

I'm sure this new version will be a hit with many.

If I read it correctly if you miss a week they assign you what the majority of the other folks picked.  That was a new one to me.

If you didn't receive an email from upickem.net to the email address you used it didn't work.  Check the spam bucket and if not there try again.

That is also where I read "Remember to pick your winners ahead of time or the computer
will select the most-picked one for you. "

Something's wrong with the system.  I won 12 games and it's saying I only won 9.  I wonder if their system is not counting 3 of the games for some reason.  This would explain why you won 14 but are tied with the 11 win other guy (who probably also won 14).  He must've won the tiebreaker would be my guess.  Screwy situation.  They need to correct that so that there aren't any questions.

how do you join the group?

If you haven't read the first post above read it.   Or scroll to the top of the page, place your cursor over the Hogville.net where it has three balls.  You cursor will give you the finger for action.  Click it.  That will take you to the Hogville.net main page.  Under there you'll see CFB PICKEMS just to the right of ABOUT US.  Click that.  You should be able to figure it out.  You'll create a username and password for the pick'em site.  You'll receive a welcome email.

There was definitely some kind of problem with it. Yesterday it showed 6 of us tied in first place with only the Notre dame game left to play. I got that one right as I figured most of us did. I figured it would come down to the tie breaker. Then I look today and there are two guys at number one and  10 of us tied for second so I don't get it. How are you tied for first and pick the game right but fall back a spot and four more move up to  tie for second. I'm confused.
