      NCAA Contest

      Will T&FN be having an NCAA contest? If not, what about you tafnut? You gonna have your famous contest?

        So are the MtnVuGuiz not having one?

        If not, the Taflow Challenge will commence at 11:00am EDT on this Wednesday when the Deca begins. it'll be a "Pick-All-The-Winners" game and you may fire when ready, Gridley.

          I think TFN doesn't do NCAA contests any more. Something about the evils of gambling which might corrupt the purity of collegiate athletics. As if :twisted: At any rate, I think gh explained that their contests (which usually offer TFN subscriptions/extensions) was considered a major no no at Shawanee Mission or wherever the f***ing idiots at the the puzzle palace reside. Oh, guys, what about the huge amount of money tossed into the various BB tourney pools. Won't even get into the huger amount bet of college FB games. But, no worries mate We never have scandals. Oh ops:

                  Nah. I'll go with Marlow and the T&FN form chart. Shana Cox all the way. If Rodriguez is 100% she could make it interesting, but I'll still stick with Cox.


                  • #10
                    Can't let you go uncontested in this, Marlow, so here are my choices. I do see that you have some good picks!

                    An asterisk beside the name means that that person will also make the US Olympic team this year in that event at Eugene.
