League Name: Mu NCAA Cauliflower Classic 2019
Official League Rules
1. New Rules / Reminders / General Information
1.1. Withdrawal Rule: Once the deadline hits for adding or changing teams, you not be allowed to modify your lineup. You will have until the official starting time of the first round of the NCAA National Wrestling Tournament to add rosters or make changes to existing rosters. If a wrestler withdraws from the tournament prior to its start, and that wrestler is on your roster, you will not receive any points for that weight class. Therefore, you should make a final check of your rosters prior to the submission deadline to insure you don’t have this issue.
1.2. Deduction Points Clarification: If a wrestler is deducted a team point(s) in the team scoring by the NCAA he will also be deducted a point(s) in our pool. We score our pool exactly as the NCAA scores the team race. Additionally, if a coach is deducted a team point, the NCAA assigns that deduction to the wrestler competing for that coach when the deduction occurred. Therefore, we too will deduct a point from that wrestler.
1.3. Reminder: Please look over the entire rules sheet along with all e-mails we sent before e-mailing questions. We’re more than happy to help you with anything, but please keep in mind this pool is very large and you may find an answer more quickly by simply reading the rules. Everything will be handled the same year to year, so if you’ve been in previously, unless notified, everything will be handle as it was in the past.
1.4. Website: All roster selections must be completed through the following site: http://www.fantasygrade.com. You will be required to register, after which you will need to accept an invitation to the pool. Once you have done both, you can begin adding rosters. We do not have a user or help guide for the site, but it is pretty self explanatory.
1.5. Payment: The cost is 20 dollars and you will need to put it in Paypal addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org if i do not have money buy midnight at 3/21 I will silence your team. Also put your team name so I know which team it belongs too. we will take out 25 dollars for the league fees thanW3rd place gets their money back, all the money thats left will be split between 1st place (70 percent) and 2nd place (30 percent)
