Was anyone allowed to pick this game at like 3:30, only to find out the game had already been played?  I picked the game to go over, and of course lost.  WTF is up with that covers?  Now I'm down a game already.

I picked Ohio State as soon as the line came out. I think they were at a -2.5. I go to check on it after the game was over for my easy win and then saw I had not picked an NCAA game. I go with North Carolina and of course they lose. That point was very important for me but at least it wasn't my mistake for forgetting to pick Ohio State as I thought I may have done.

I hear ya on that Ohio st game. That must have been a computer glitch. Hopefully it will get corrected. That win could be important for some people.

Guys,

We apologize for the errors on the NCB games from Friday.

We have done our best to rectify the problems, but unfortunately some of you lost out on a pick.  There is still plenty of time left in the Race to make up ground.

Guys keep in mind that this contest is FREE, we're not a sportsbook. We do our best to ensure that the Ultimate Race and our other contests run smoothly 365 days a year.  Problems can occur from time to time, and when they do we are forced to act quickly to resolve them, which sometimes means an end result that isn't ideal...such as having to delete or void games that weren't imported properly.

It's not possible to go back and credit that pick, if it was that easy we would have already done so.

We apologize but anyone that selected one of the affected NCB games on Friday, Nov. 20th had to have the play deleted as that was the only way we could solve the problem, these games had the wrong rotation numbers imported and as such wouldn't have been graded properly leaving your accounts with a pending play for the duration of the contest. 

Losing 1 play on a single day was a better option than having your accounts only able to make 3 plays a day for the rest of the contest.

Again, we apologize for this error, and will do our best to ensure it does not occur again but there was nothing we could do aside from delete the plays once the games had begun and the wrong ROT numbers had already been assigned to the picks you had all entered.
