D3Swimming.com will be running a Confidence Ranking Contest for the winners of the NCAA D3 Swim Meet in March. There will be no money bet in this contest as this is an NCAA sport and betting is illegal. If we are able to make t-shirts this year, maybe we can give one to the winner. Hopefully this is popular enough to warrant doing annually.
Here is how it works:
Take the attached form and pick a winner for each individual event
Rate how confident you are in each pick numbering 1 to 13, with 13 being the most confident
Then pick the relays
Rate how confident you are for each relay separately from individual events, numbering 2-10 using only even numbers (2, 4, 6, 8, 10… I hope that wasn’t necessary, but..) with 10 being the most confident
Then save your picks with a different file name and pm me with your filled out spreadsheet (or if you have my email, send it that way, but I won’t be giving that out here unless the pm’ing idea doesn’t work). I will put a master copy on a Google spreadsheet, which will be seen only after all picks are in.
Due date: October 23rd
When the meet has been swum, the winner is the person with the most points (not necessarily the most correct picks)
This is picking the men’s winners. If there is significant interest for a women’s contest of the same format, I’d be happy to do that as well.
If you don’t have Excel and can’t open this, please let me know below.
If anyone is confused on how this works, let me know.
Anyone can play. The more, the merrier.
If you aren’t registered with a username but want to participate, either get registered or have a friend send it to me for you. You can still play.
We aren’t picking diving. Diving is cool but this is D3SWIMMING.com.
