    Just my 2 cents....lines are posted. Available to all in contest. If there is fluctuation or a move in a certain direction, and it meets your criteria, jump on it. If need be, wait until Friday/Sat to make your plays. The rules were posted. Don't see reason to post the numbers a day later. The numbers posted are the available lines at that time. And it does take a lot of time to run these contests. I remember an oldtimer telling me.... you could teach someone to shit a gold brick, and they would complain because you didn't shit it for them.

    The deadline last year was 10pm Friday. 45 of the 72 posted BEFORE that deadline this week. 26 waited longer. About 2 out of 3 don't care apparently.

    It isn't only about hopefully posting lines later during future years, it's also about having an earlier deadline. Pushing the deadline forward this year to Saturday morning (instead of Friday night as it was previously) only exacerbated the line watching aspect.
    Exactly. Agreed.

    339 Western Mich is +6. Made the change. No one had them as a pick so no harm. Thanks Bitty for the heads up.

    Wow, just read all the discussion. Personally, I think we all get the same lines so it's 100% fair. Also, thank you so much for changing the deadline to later. Really appreciate all the work put in to make such a great contest every year. Thanks!
