General ECS talk.

Unread postby Dannicus » Wed May 11, 2016 10:40:17 am

Old Man Drephe used to do this in years past, I thought we should continue this tradition. I'm stealing it and bringing it back. SLet's pick the winners of each USOC match for 2016!

Each round will be scored individually since the open cup bracket is so inconsistent and changes based on region after the first 2 rounds. The winner of the League will have the most points after the final. Each Round will have a new submission form, with a new thread. I'll update scoring after each round. Please fill out the form in the link below. One entry per person. I'm even throwing your a bone. For the Corinthians FC of San Antonio (NPSL) at NTX Rayados (Texas) match, pick Corinthians FC as the other team had to forfeit for not having enough players.



FIRST ROUND SUBMISSION FORM
http://goo.gl/forms/UdTQxNth3Q


Schedule
May 15: First round – 32 lower-division teams (PDL, USASA, NPSL, US Club Soccer)
May 22: Second round – 16 first-round winners plus 10 USL-Pro & 6 NASL teams
May 29: Third round – 16 second-round winners plus 16 MLS teams
Jun 5: Forth Round of 16
Jun 26: Quarterfinals
Jul 10: Semifinals
Aug 7: Final

There is typically live blog/twitter feeds that thecup.us combines into 1 stream on match days to keep up with the action.

Prizes
TBA (Even if the prize is, I'll buy you a drink, there will be a prize for the winner of this League)

Point System

Points for Correct Pick

2 = 1st Round
2 = 2nd Round
3 = 3rd Round
6 = 4th Round
8 = Round of 16
10 = Quarter Final
12 = Semi Final
15 = Final

Whomever has the most points after the final, wins.

Note: I wanted to make sure to award a similar amount of points for the first few rounds since each of these round has 16 games. Most people know nothing of these teams and it can go either way. Later in the tournament it is a little easier to know who will win.

Thanks for putting this together, Dan. I really like having a reason to watch the first round of play :)

1:00 PM. Bracket for the first round is closed.

If you missed out, no worries, scores carry over to the next round. You can jump in, in round 2! GOOD LUCK ALL!

EDIT: I've reopened the bracket. First match is pushed to 2:00 PM Pacific. Get in while you can!! I'll be closing at 2:00PM

Shocked you actually were able to put something together! I would have given you a hand, but I have been slammed at work after getting back from vacation and just noticed this now.

After consulting with Drephe, we've decided to leave the first round bracket open until the Sounders-U23 kicks off to give people a chance to enter, since it was such short notice.

Here's how this will work:

-You will not tally points for any picks you make, that have already kicked off. You WILL tally points for picks made before the games start.

I'll try to keep this updated. But here are everyone's picks. Colors are the cutoffs for times. If a pick has a strike through it, you were too late for that pick.

OMG, that Kraze bicycle kick disallowed. Helps my bracket, but I think that was a bad call.

Drephe pointed out a very important rule, last night. In keeping with tradition, we are going to institute the rule. So.....NEW RULE:

"Who ever comes in dead last at the end of the League, has to to buy the 3rd place finisher, a pitcher at a home game."

Also:

After the third round is over, I will personally buy the top player a pitcher at the next home match.

Things to shoot for!
