All entrants must be a registered CSTV Fantasy user. There is no cost to enter.
1. General. Teams are assigned a rating value based on 2004 final standings and projected 2005 performances, (the "Player Ratings"). Entrants must select ten (6) teams to form a complete active roster while staying under the specified team rating limit of one hundred (100) credits. Teams that exceed the team rating limit or do not field a complete roster will receive no points. Points are awarded following each week that includes a College Football game (see Scoring System below).
2. How to make your selections. You may enter your selections online by following the Game instructions.
3. Scoring. From all eligible entries received, the winners will be the participants that accumulate the most points each week during the Promotion Period. In the event the scheduled Amateur College Football game listed does not occur as scheduled (e.g., the game is cancelled, postponed, etc.) no points will be awarded. Ties will be broken in accordance with the tie-breaker procedure below.
4. The statistical categories which count in The Game are Passing Yards (Pass), Rushing Yards (Rush), Passing Touchdowns (PTD), Rushing Touchdowns (RTD), Wins (Wins):
- eg. if a team allows 10 points then it would receive 5 fantasy points (50/10=5)
1 point for every 25 yards passing
6 points for every passing touchdown
2 points for every passing 2 point conversion
1 point for every 10 yards rushing
6 points for every rushing touchdown
2 points for every rushing 2 point conversion
(50/points allowed) for points allowed
6 points per defensive TD
Coach Slots Scoring
25 points per win
Note: A team will receive points based on the above outlined scoring system but only for scoring type related to the position in which that player is slotted. Quarterback positions will only receive points for passing related performance. Running back positions will only receive points for rushing related performance. Defensive position will only receive points for defensive related performance. Coaches will only receive points based on wins. This means that if a quarterback slotted player rushes for a touchdown no points will be rewarded or if a running back slotted player passes for a touchdown no points will be rewarded.
5. Game Management: CSTV will adjust credit values for ALL teams on a weekly basis to promote game strategy. Contestants will be responsible to edit their team selections each week to remain within the credit card. Some values may not change if the value of that team did not change from the previous week based on performance.
6. Lock-time. All rosters will lock at 5:00 PM ET on each Thursday for that week and must be submitted, received and recorded by the scheduled lock-time. Selections submitted after the deadlines are considered invalid for the current week. A user will be allowed to make selections for the following week but will need to check their roster as the values for all new teams will be adjusted during the weekly value adjustment process.
In the event of a tie, CSTV will have the right to choose the potential Weekly winner via a random drawing from all entrants that are still tied after the tiebreaker. Limit one Game Play per person/email address per week.Eligibility
