28 and counting

Accounts are updated as of Aug. 19, 9:30 p.m. MST. We have posted a Registration Update page where you can check your status for the 2020 season.

We’re back at it for the 28th season. Pigskin Mania registration is underway.

We don’t have any new rules and the entry fee is still $60, but there are a couple of items to note as we head into the new season.

The 2019-2020 season starts the weekend of Aug. 29 to Sept. 2 (Labor Day weekend). The first week is all college games.

The season will last 20 weeks because the CFB Championship game has been pushed all the way to January 13. In order to keep the tradition of the national championship game being the final Pigskin Special, we are extending the season to that weekend, which will include the four games of the second round of NFL playoffs. The 2019-2020 schedule is updated.

Even though there will be only five games played in Week 20, the payouts for perfect weeks will not change. It’s still $60 for a perfect week that includes a Lock and the Special, and it’s $30 for all other perfect weeks.

AMcKenny and Pulley96 are the defending champions after they tied for first last season with a pool record 71 points.

The early leader for the Week 1 Pigskin Special is Oregon vs. Auburn, a game that is being played in Arlington, Texas. Auburn is currently a 2.5-point favorite.

The pool had 910 entries last year. History has shown that the size of the pool increases each year. It increased by 81 players from 2017 to 2018 so it’s conceivable we could approach 1,000 players or maybe go over the top.

In light of those numbers, we regret to inform you that the archives with individual performances over the history of the pool are no longer being compiled. We still have all the historical information and we might refer to it during the course of the season. But the changeover to PM IDs and the increasing number of players in the pool make it too time-consuming to compile each year.

We still will be able to keep the Streaks Without a Perfect Week as a conversation piece, and we can still maintain the record book for individual season records. Standings for each year of the pool will still be on the site for players to look back and see some of the history.

Aside from that, we’re getting ready to go.

Please read and follow the directions on the Registration page to make sure things to smoothly. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to drop us an email at poolmaster@pigskinmania.net.

We’re going to figure out a way to keep you updated on whether your registration is complete to limit the number of inquiries for The Poolmaster to respond to. We ask for your patience on that.

Thanks and let’s go.
