Contest Rules

Please remember, this is supposed to be about fun and Trojan camaraderie.
There are no entry fees.
Every participant will receive 20,000 betting units.
You must bet a minimum of 1 game and 1,000 units each week. The exception to this rule is Week 0 (games played on August 26th) where you do not need to make a wager.
There will be a limited number of games to choose from each week.
The contest ends on December 4, 2023.
I will post the point spread for each week’s games on Monday
All wagers must be received by Friday at noon PT. (Exact date will posted weekly)
Wagers must be posted on the TDB (preferred) or they can be emailed to: john@trojandailyblog.com.
I will review each wager to make sure that it was correctly placed. I will then respond to your entries to let you know that they have been accepted by liking your wager comment.
If you do not see your wager acknowledgement please contact me as soon as possible by posting a comment on the blog prior to the first game you have wagered on.
If a game is cancelled or moved to another date, then that game will not be counted as a wager (no action).
Winning wagers will be paid as ‘even money’, for example; if you bet 1,000 units, you will win 1,000 units.
The winner will be determined by who has the most betting units in their account at the end of the contest.
I will keep track of everyone’s account and this accounting will be posted on TDB on Monday of each week of the contest. Please review my figures. If you think that a mistake has been made you must contact me by 9pm on the Monday that the results were posted, otherwise these numbers will be considered official.
First Prize is: 150.00
Second Prize is: 75.00
Third Prize is: 25.00
If two people end up in first place, then the first and second prize will be added together and that amount will be split between the two winners.
I will handle all disputes and my decision will be final.
Anyone can be removed from the contest for exhibiting poor sportsmanship, as determined by me.
By making wagers on the games you acknowledge you agree to these rules.
John Weld

I’d really like to sit down at a luncheon with all the coaches who voted in the Coaches Poll, and have them tell me how Clemson is a better team than Duke on the morning after Duke beat Clemson 28-7 (and looked like the much better team doing it). Luckily, I think the CFP Committee does a better job of not being influenced by the “media darling” mentality. Not a perfect job, but a better one. I suspect, if the CFP rankings came out after week one, Clemson would be unranked and Duke would be somewhere close to #20 where… Read more »

That makes a revision to my wagers tempting, but I just can’t trust my fate to Utah away from Rice-Eccles!
