GRT 2021 Picks Contest

It’s back, and this time a full slate of games every week! Hey now!

It’s the 2021 Gameday on Rocky Top picks contest, once again from our longtime friends at Fun Office Pools. It’s free to play – you can join our group right here.

As always, the pool uses confidence points: each week we pick 20 games, straight up. You assign 20 points to the outcome you’re most confident in (say, Vols over Bowling Green) and 1 point to the outcome you’re least confident in (say, Georgia vs Clemson). Picks are due before kickoff of each game – please note we usually pick the Thursday night contest. Fittingly, there are ZERO games from Saturday’s Week Zero slate in the contest, so you’ve got until Thursday night to get started. And if you miss a game or a week, fear not: if you forget to pick, you automatically get just one point lower than whoever comes in last place that week among those who submitted their picks.

It’s one of our favorite traditions around here. Good to be back.
