What are the different contests?
There are three basic contests: Longhorn Football, Big XII Football, and Bowl Season. Both the Longhorn Football and Big XII Football contests include a weekly contest as well as a cumulative season-long contest. Both contests will include the Big XII Championship and any Bowl games played by Big XII teams. The Bowl Season contest will basically be a prediction contest for all bowl games (might make that Humanitarian Bowl a bit more interesting to watch).

What do I win?
Weekly contest winners will receive a mousepad. Season contest winners will receive a HornFans tshirt.
How does the scoring work?
Higher scores are better. 200 is a perfect score. Points are deducted off of 200 as such:
-10 for not picking the correct winner of the game
Its Huckleberry's formula, and this is his reasoning:
The other two scoring mechanisms just made sense to me. It's more important to say who will win and by how much, but there is also incentive to correctly guess how many points will be scored. It's my way of taking into account both the "point spread" and the "over/under".
