    Thanks to everyone who participated, it was another successful season of Staying Alive and look forward to next season, again, Thanks to everyone who participated.

    We are doing our Staying Alive Contest again this season. As before the concept is pretty simple--but we have made a couple of changes. The object is still to pick the winners of the 6 games every week. But it's not quite as simple as just picking winners, there is a lot of strategy involved. Here's how it works:

    Please be sure to READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!

    •Each week you will pick six teams that you believe will win that week. These teams can be from ANY Classification.
    •Teams chosen must be playing a team from their class or HIGHER. EXCEPTION: You may choose 6A teams that are playing other 6A teams OR 5A teams.
    •You may only pick an individual team to win one time. For example, if you pick Trinity to win in Week #1 you cannot pick Trinity again the rest of the season.
    •In past seasons once you missed one game or picked a game that did not meet the contest criteria you were eliminated. This season, however, will be DOUBLE ELIMINATION. It will take 2 missed games to eliminate you. For example if you pick five out of six games in Week #1 you would be eligible to continue on to Week #2. If you miss a second game in Week #2 or any week after that then you are out. Also, if you miss 2 games in one week you are out.
    •If you cannot submit an entry with 6 teams that are playing a team in their class or higher each game that you cannot submit counts as a miss.
    •If you do not submit an entry for any week you are out.
    •Everyone that has one miss or less will be able to advance to the next week.
    •If you are eliminated or do not compete in any week you will not be eligible to continue.
    •All teams chosen MUST be playing against an in-state team. Only KY schools playing against KY schools are allowed to be chosen. From this point on if a KY school is playing an out of state school it will count as a loss regardless of the outcome of the game.
    •The contest will run until there is just one winner.

    McCreary Central was not placed in a classification during realignment. Because they were previously a 3A team they will continue to be seen as a 3A team. Please choose accordingly if you choose to use a team that is scheduled to play McCreary Central.


    Your entry should be in the following format:

    TEAM
    TEAM
    TEAM
    TEAM
    TEAM
    TEAM

    Do not post anything that is not an entry. If you do so, the post(s) will be deleted. If you are not eligible to participate (eliminated in a prior week), DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD.

    The deadline for all entries is 5 pm (EST) Friday.

    Good luck to everyone!!!!!

    What he said about running this critter--thanks. Congrats to 16thBBall Fan for a job well done. It has been a strange year for me--7 wins in high school football but too dumb to qualify for the regional tourney. This contest takes skill and LUCK. Since I've won this twice in 4 years I thought I had the strategy figured out but I did learn something new this year. If I ever get back to one of the final three again I'll see what the other guys have so I know when to drop the hammer. I assume your slate of picks were your best options. While I was confident with Bowling Green I would have pulled them and Franklin-Simpson(who won) and stuck T and CovCath in. Still would have enough to pick from 8 games for next week. The 2 guys who have this thing figured out are Purple88 (last years champ) and Jack Of All Trades. Both of them are in the final 2-5 contestants almost every year.

    Congrats to @dmh115 and @16thBBall Fan! This is the toughest game to win IMO. You are not only battling your opponents, you are battling yourself as well. When to play who when. You need a lot of luck early and late to win this game. Great Job! And Jack of All Trades is a very worthy competitor. Thank you @All State Baseball for running this. Toughest contest to run for sure! See you guys next year!
