Pick'em Rule Change, 3rd to last SEC Series

Once a year, typically the 3rd to last SEC Series, Pick'em will offer the "Hail Mary", its triple the point value however its also triple the point value if you're incorrect.

IMPORTANT, to be eligible for the "Hail Mary", you must be at least 18 points behind the points leader.

Hail Mary Point System
Sweep Hail Mary Correct +18
Sweep Hail Mary Wrong -18
2-1 or 1-2 Hail Mary Correct +9
2-1 or 1-2 Hail Mary Wrong -9
2-1 and we Sweep +3
Swept Hail Mary Correct +18
Swept Hail Mary Wrong -18

Please, pick with your gut and not your heart. OT

Also, next year when Doubling Up, the point value if incorrect is the Doubled amount, not the face value of points it is now......will make the Double a little more risky.

Right now if you double up for instance with 2-1 worth 3 points. If you lose itís -3 and plus 6 if you win. Next year itís -6.
