Where does it say point spreads matter? 

Here are the rules you posted in #1:

Year #7

The rules are simple--Pick the Winner of each game.
1 point for each correct pick.
Bonus +1 if all picks correct.
Game will continue until final week of season and we have a winner.

I missed week one, but asked about this when i picked for week two, in post #46, and can't find a response.

"The point spread is listed as reference, right? Or are we playing with the spread this year?"

As kiir already mentioned, you would occasionally include a point spread in a game, but always made a note of it. Now the game changed, without notification?

Okay, I guess. Good to know.

I've been going by the spread this whole time. I based that on the spreads being posted each week. If we all haven't been under the same thought, I propose either coming to a consensus on how we do this and start over on week 5 or scrap it all together.

Are we doing point spreads in the pro games? Because I might want to review my picks for today if we are.

No point spread listed in the NFL thread, so I can only assume straight up pick em. Will the ugly asterisk be beside the winners name? This could be the Kavanaugh moment in this thread.

Game is same as last season where I used point spread per game (as requested by some so it wasn't just pick the winner)

In previous years if I ever posted a point spread next to a team it was used in determining the winner. No point spread next to a game meant that game did not take point spread into account. 
This entire season I have used point spread. Points were given based on point spread added to determine winner (hence the +x points next to team name showing that team is getting those points added to their score).

This explains why a few thought their scores were wrong when they simply looked to see who won the game without adding in the point spread.
I chose games last season and this one based on point spread. Alabama over texas A&M was no-brainer...…..but the point spread added made it a close call.
Same reason I had Louisville vs bama game in week 1---the 24.5 points given to Louisville (and bama still covered). If I had the army vs ou game this week army would have won getting 31.5 points yet losing by 7 in OT in norman (wtf was that? army kept the ball most of the game and made OU look like Tulsa instead)

I am not enthused by college football this year. Give bama their trophy. And pro football is boring and predictable. At least mahomes at kc keeps it exciting and browns with Mayfield on Thursday was good and energetic game. But pro football with so many rules on catches being catches and cant hit below this or below that...it is almost flag football. Put the QBS in dresses. Every other hit is a flag for roughness. Women pro football is more exciting

I had no idea point spread was a factor. But I have no idea in general

I'm a Duck fan through and through.  Autzen Stadium is amazing.  But I don't think they're there this year.  Yes, they owned Stanford and blew it in the end but Stanford has proven they never belonged in the top 10.  Rooting hard for the Ducks but I can't see them getting past the Huskies.
