The Scott Frost era at Nebraska began with a bang, unfortunately the bang was the crack of thunder and lightning. Storms hung around the Lincoln area so long that they ended up cancelling the game. Bummer for the Cornhusker fans, and a bummer for the Pigskin Pick Six. There really isn’t a fair way of handling this situation, but I chose a solution that seems to be the fairest:
- Anyone who picked Nebraska or Akron in week one will be allowed to make SEVEN PICKS for week two. This is the only week you will be allowed to replace the cancelled game.
- If you locked the Nebraska vs Akron game, you will need to make two locks in week two. Since the pick form only allows one lock, you will need to email me the other game you want to count as your second lock.
- The cancelled game makes the weekly winner prize tricky. As it applies to week one, if you made a selection in the Nebraska vs Akron game, you are competing with only five picks. I realize this basically eliminates those people from contention, and I am sorry for that.
- Since some people are making seven selections this week, allowing all seven picks to count towards the weekly prize would put them at an unfair advantage. Therefore, if you are picking seven games this week, you will only be eligible to win the weekly prize if your worst six-game score is the highest score of the week. Again, i realize this also puts some people at a disadvantage.
Barring any other unforeseen circumstances, we should be back on track by week three. I ask that you not email me about other alternatives for how this should/could be handled. I can tell you that I’ve consulted with enough people that all possible solutions have been discussed. Thanks for your understanding.
The week one results and week two pick form will be sent by the end of the day tomorrow.
