757ODU - - Charlotte; UNT; ODU
AdoptedMonarch - - Charlotte; UTSA; ODU
bit_9 - - FIU; UTSA; Rice
elon77 - - WKU; UAB; La. Tech.
Grommet - - ODU; USM
HeadsetGuy - - FAU; WKU; FIU
LetsGoODU - - La. Tech.; UTSA; FIU
mturn017 - - Charlotte; UTSA; Rice
odu09 - - ODU; USM
oduhoops71 - - ODU; UTSA
ODUDrunkard - - La. Tech.; UTSA; FIU
ODU True Blue - - ODU; UTSA
scotty2590 - - Charlotte; UTSA; FIU
VBMonarch - - Charlotte; UNT; FIU

Interestingly, since 5 of 12 have already picked FIU, if the Pansies also lose tomorrow then this will convert to a double-elimination contest -- even for those of us who went rogue on other picks.

In any event, official picks from oduhoops71 and ODU True Blue are due by 1:00 pm tomorrow.

So I haven’t read the rules or anything but the double elimination kicks in for a slaughter rule? Like if too many go down in one round? And will that cut off after so many rounds or so many contestants remaining?

Yes; >40%; applies to only the first four weeks ....

9. If everyone loses the same week, then those still in the contest will continue to the next week. Also, if during any of the first four weekends of conference play (ending with the Jan. 24-26 weekend games) 40% or more of the contestant pool is eliminated, then the contest will immediate convert for those remaining (but not for those previously eliminated) to double elimination.

Well written rule. I’ll try not to get DQ’d this go round.

ODU True Blue - - ODU; UTSA; MTSU
scotty2590 - - Charlotte; UTSA; FIU
VBMonarch - - Charlotte; UNT; FIU

oduhoops71 and ODU True Blue have been assigned Empty Sue, who is today's dirtiest, smelliest dog.

We will very likely be losing some contestants today - - UNLESS FIU loses to MTSU, and this contest converts to double elimination per the >40% anti-bloodbath rule. The casualty list will be reported tomorrow.

FIU won. But they were the only selection to win.

7 out of 12 losers translates to 59%. We move onto double elimination. I will have the updated color chart posted tomorrow.

Except for the smarty-pantses who went with FIU, the rest of us all picked losers. That converts this contest to double-elimination, per Rule #9 (2nd sentence) of the opening post. Here's the updated roster:

757ODU - - Charlotte; UNT; ODU
AdoptedMonarch - - Charlotte; UTSA; ODU
bit_9 - - FIU; UTSA; Rice
elon77 - - WKU; UAB; La. Tech.
Grommet - - ODU; USM
HeadsetGuy - - FAU; WKU; FIU
LetsGoODU - - La. Tech.; UTSA; FIU
mturn017 - - Charlotte; UTSA; Rice
odu09 - - ODU; USM
oduhoops71 - - ODU; UTSA; MTSU
ODUDrunkard - - La. Tech.; UTSA; FIU
ODU True Blue - - ODU; UTSA; MTSU
scotty2590 - - Charlotte; UTSA; FIU
VBMonarch - - Charlotte; UNT; FIU

A bolded red entry next you your name means that you are eliminated. An unbolded red entry next to your name means that you've got one more screw up before you are out.

I think I've done this correctly, but know that you unforgiving guys will let me know if not.
