    Ok, thanks. I revised my pick from 5000 to 6000 to give you a heads up.

    To give an advantage to others, judging from my results last week, I would encourage people to pick the exact opposite of what I just picked.

    Re: 2013-2014: NCAA Weekly Pick'em

    NCAA TOURNAMENT WEEK! So this week is similar to last week. You will pick the semifinal contests of each regional, and those games will count towards your overall W-L-T record. The Regional Champion that you pick does not have to be one of the two semifinalists that you picked, and that pick will not count towards your overall W-L-T record. The rules remain the same as all previous weeks. This week's deadline for getting picks in is FRIDAY, at 2:00pm EASTERN. Any picks submitted at 2:01pm Eastern on Friday or after will not be counted. If you see any mistakes in these selections, please let me know by Wednesday at 8:00pm Eastern. If not noticed by then, I will interpret how the mistake will be played. As always, everyone is welcome, even if you have yet to play thus far this year.

    Also, I'll be keeping track of points specifically for the NCAA Tournament. After the Frozen Four, we'll have 4 "champions" of pick'em:
    1) Overall Point Leader
    2) Best W-L-T record
    3) Pick'em Tournament Challenge
    4) NCAA Tournament Leader

    Good luck!

    West Regional Semifinals: (10 points per game)
    Minnesota vs. Robert Morris -
    Notre Dame vs. St. Cloud State -

    West Regional Champion: (15 points) -

    Northeast Regional Semifinals: (10 points per game)
    Boston College vs. Denver -
    Massachusetts Lowell vs. Minnesota State -

    Northeast Regional Champion: (15 points) -

    East Regional Semifinals: (10 points per game)
    Union vs. Vermont -
    Quinnipiac vs. Providence -

    East Regional Champion: (15 points) -

    Midwest Regional Semifinals: (10 points per game)
    Wisconsin vs. North Dakota -
    Ferris State vs. Colgate -

    Midwest Regional Champion: (15 points) -

    Bonus Question #1 (15 points if correct, otherwise, take 1 point off until 0 (can't go into negative)):
    Total Number of Shots on Goal in the West Regional (3 games) -

    Bonus Question #2 (15 points if correct, otherwise, take 1 point off until 0 (can't go into negative)):
    Total Number of Penalty Minutes in the Northeast Regional (3 games) -

    Bonus Question #3 (15 points if correct, otherwise, take 1 point off (CAN go into negative for your bonus up until zero*)):
    Total Number of Minutes Played** in the East Regional (3 games) -

    Bonus Question #4 (15 points if correct, otherwise take 1 point off until 0 (can't go into negative)):
    Total Attendance (by hundreds) in the Midwest Regional*** (3 games) -

    *For this Bonus Question, you can lose all of your bonus points. For example, if you earn all 45 bonus points from the other three questions, but are off by 35 minutes on this question, you would only earn 25 bonus points in addition to whatever regular points you score (15-35 = (-20). 45 + (-20) = 25). You cannot lose your points scored from the Regional picks. So, if you are off by 65 minutes, and earn 0 bonus points from the other 3 questions, and earn 80 points from the NCAA Tournament game predictions, your total will still be 80 points. Essentially, only bonus points are in jeopardy from this bonus. If you choose not to select an answer for this bonus question, I will assume you are predicting 0 minutes, and will lose any bonus points that you would otherwise gain. In other words, make a prediction here please .

    **Number of Minutes Played will be rounded to nearest minute. For example, if there are 191 minutes and 31 seconds, the total number of minutes will be 192 minutes.

    ***For this question, pick how many people you think will attend the Midwest Regional. Scoring will go by the hundreds. For example, if you pick 15,000 total attendance for the three games, and there is actually 16,000, you would be off by 1,000. I will then divide that number 100, and you would earn 5 points (1000/100 = 10. 15-10 = 5 points earned). All attendance figures will be taken from the USCHO box scores. All attendance figures will be rounded to the nearest 100. For example, if the Total is 15,463, then the number I would use would be 15,500. If you picked 15,000, you would earn 10 points (15,500 - 15,000 = 500. 500/100 = 5. 15-5 = 10 points earned).

    There are 200 points up for grabs this weekend. Good luck to everyone that plays!!
