It’s ‘Sack Schultz’ time, suckers: Win Chick-fil-A Bowl tickets or $2,500

chalkboard

Hello, I am back. Actually, not quite yet. Weekend Predictions, your gateway to financial independence and cheap Auburn jokes, returns next week for yet another season. I’m not sure how long we’ve done this, maybe 20 years, which surpasses the official over/under in Las Vegas by 19 years, 49 weeks and 3 days, and, it follows, has somehow kept me employed. (Yeah, me!)

But I’m here today to tell you that “Sack Schultz,” the contest subsidiary of Weekend Predictions, Inc., will be open for business on Sunday, Aug. 28. Just go to this updated link to register.  To register for the contest you must use or create an AJC.com account log in. You won’t be able to access this year’s contest from last year’s link.

Sack-Schultz-art

This is how the “Sack Schultz” contest works: Each week, there will be a slate of 15 college football games. You don’t have to worry about point spreads. All you have to do is pick the winners. I suggest you try my system of choosing teams by jersey color, going in alphabetical order. But that’s your decision.

There will be two sets of prizes. AJC weekly winners will receive a $25 Kroger gift card and weekly national winners will win an NCAA Fathead. The end-of-season grand prize for AJC readers will be two tickets to the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. Remember: This season the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl is a college football playoff semifinal game, so it will match two of the four best teams in the nation (1 vs 4 or 2 vs. 3).

The grand prize for the national winner is your choice of a $2,500 Apple Vacation gift card or $2,500 in cash.

I also will be picking winners of the 15 games each week. Unfortunately, I’m not eligible to win the contest. So if you win and need companionship, I’m free.

Remember, registration opens Sunday, and the contest begins next week. Go to this link to enter the contest. Happy pickin’.

The log in and registration pages are totally screwed up. Everything, even help, directs to the registration page that keeps asking for a Public Name, but there is no field to enter it.

Okay Schultzie, one more time, when will that site be open?  Do we have to do 20 push ups if we go the site ON the day and it is not open?  I mean, I am starting to melt down here.

If the Dawgs lose???

You're on record saying UNC is better than UGA.

Starting to waffle a bit?

@TOJacket @Big Wally @OH:IO ....and why are you now responding to posts to Blowhio?  I suppose you are now a big OSU fan also.  In your case it would make sense, I mean, who in their right mind would pull for Tech.

You should know better than to mess with me on documentation. GTBlob found out the hard way; you will, too.

Just don't think UGA has as good of a "team" as UNC...not better players.....better team.

Ezekiel Elliott - great reflection of the OSU program.  When he isn't beating up women, he is going to marijuana dispensaries.  Ole Urban sure is proud.  Of course I guess EE hasn't been convicted of triple homicide yet, so I guess Ole Urban is raising his recruiting standards a little.

Yep. #4 pick in the draft, millions in the bank and a National Championship really sucks.

They're only second because of the recent run of Auburn arrests.

@TOJacket @Big Wally You just don't have the ability to keep up do you?  Ezekiel Manziel is no longer in college.  Fulmer Cup would not be applicable.  Quit bringing knives to gunfights junior.
