RTT 2015 Picks Contest

New, 7 comments
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

One week from tonight, the fury begins.  Our annual confidence points picks contest through Fun Office Pools is now open, and you can make your picks for week one.

If you've played with us before, you should have received an email last night inviting you to join the pool again.  If not, you can sign up for a free account with Fun Office Pools and then join the Rocky Top Talk 2015 group.  We pick 20 games straight up each week with confidence points (your most confident pick is worth 20 points, least confident worth 1 point, etc).  And even if you miss a week, you'll still get one point fewer than the lowest submitted entry for that week to keep you in the game.  We also track the data on the Vols each week to show us exactly how confident we're feeling heading into Saturday.

If you have any questions on the contest or how to sign up, feel free to leave them in the comments.  Picks are due before kickoff of each game; we always pick the Thursday night game, and opening week means a ton of games Thursday (including a 1 AM Friday morning start), Friday, Saturday, plus one each Sunday and Monday.

Here's a look at the slate for week one, just seven days away:
