Here we are men. The Challenge is here and we are all excited. Last seasons challenge was absolutely great. It went down to the very last week and basically, down to the last few games. Congratulations to TheChad10 last year for being the guy who survived that last week and won.

Here are the rules this season, and NO....there not up for debate.

1) The point system is still the same. If you pick a game and it wins, you win that many points. If it loses, then you lose that many points. Simple.

2) This season I will list 13 games every week. 2 from each of the major 6 BCS conferences. Plus wherever " ESPN Gameday" is that week. So yes, one of the major 6 will get that extra game in for that week. Now understand, this is a difficult way to choose games, so at times when games are played out of conference it may look like odd. For example, Kentucky and Louisville play in week 1. That will count for a " Big East game " but maybe not for a SEC game. Reason is, I will try to select games that are 7 points or less and maybe the Big East only had a few games eligible. My objective is to always try and select games that are spreads of 7 points or less.

3) You will then choose 10 games of your choice to use as your " Ten games ".  We are still ranking them from 10 being worth 10 points and 1 being worth 1 point. Only 10 selections, 10 - 1. Simple.

4) Every week I will have a thread just for this contest. No need to ask in my other thread about it. All questions about the contest should stay in the thread.

5) Once you post your plays. That's it. No Changing them unless there was a error and talk about it with me about and I will make a ruling on it.

6) This is HUGE . You must have your plays posted no later then by the date and time I post in the weekly challenge thread each week. No exceptions will be made. Once the clock strikes, that's it. You will take a -55 points loss for the week and that will hurt. Last season we had this happen a few times.

7) The Contest will run all the way until the weekend of thanksgiving. I think that's 13 weeks. It's a grind.

8) I post the standings each week in this thread. -29- will help me keep up with the scoring from week to week. I rarely make a mistake, but it's good to have two people keeping score.

9) If you drop out then you are a girl. This is a " Big Boys game " man up and take the good with the bad. Betting week to week on college football can be tough at times. But, it's a beautiful thing.

10) Most important. Let's have fun!!! College football 2012 is here!!!
