It’s bold predictions time… we’re launching our annual Men’s NCAA Championships Pick ‘Em Contest with a tweaked scoring format and a lineup of great prizes! This year’s contest is sponsored by FINIS, who will be providing prizes to the winners.
Not sure who to pick? Stay tuned for our official event-by-event previews starting this week.
Correctly picking a swimmer to place:
- 1st – 7 points
- 2nd – 5 points
- 3rd – 4 points
- 4th – 3 points
Correctly picking a swimmer to place in the top 4, but putting them in the wrong spot, will earn you 1 point.
We’re streamlining our team picks scoring, awarding 10 points for picking the winning team and 5 points for each correctly-guessed team after that:
- 1st – 10
- 2nd-10th – 5
Picks will close at 4PM Eastern Time on Wednesday, March 27th, and at that time, we will post everyone’s picks for them to see.
By using the new Google Forms format, you CAN go in and edit your responses up until 4 PM on Wednesday. You can also use this “edit responses” ability to go in and print or save your answers.
The tie-breaker for prizes, if necessary, will be the most correctly-picked winners in the relevant time period, then 2nd-place finishers, then 3rd-place finishers, etc. in the relevant time period.
Note: this year, we’ve solved a technical limitation that we’ve had in the past that made it impossible to change your mind on the team selections once a team had been clicked. The “JK” columns are designed for any such errors. If you don’t need them, feel free to leave them blank!
