Our annual picks contest is back: the Rocky Top Talk 2016 picks contest is now open through Fun Office Pools. Same rules apply: we pick the 20 biggest games every week straight up using confidence points, where you put 20 points on your most confident pick, 1 on your least confident pick, etc. It’s always fun and free to play.

If you’ve played in any of our pools before, you should have received an email invitation last night. If you’re new, we invite you to create a free account through Fun Office Pools then click here to join, or search for the Rocky Top Talk 2016 group to join us.
