    Quarterfinals: Predictions Contest

    Okay, here's your chance to prove your betting prowess. At stake: bragging rights.

    Predict the outcome of each of the Quarterfinal games, including score.

    Winner is the person with the best record (a perfect 4 of 4 correct wins).

    Ties decided by the person with the most correct exact scorelines (i.e. if one finalist predicts 3 correct scorelines, and the other 2 correct, the person posting 3 correct wins. If still tied, then decided by the lowest margin of error in total aggregate goal difference in the other correctly picked outcomes where the scoreline was not exact.

    If predicting a draw, also add outcome of penalty shootout.

    If, for some reason, there is still a tie after these criteria, I'll determine if there is another criteria by which to separate the winner (i.e. who had the lowest error on their worst prediction).

    EXTRA: for fun, you are allowed one [1] Mulligan. You can, in advance, choose one game where you think the outcome is too close to predict. If you choose the outcome incorrectly, that game will still end in your CORRECT column. In the case of a tie in the contest, those with the best score WITHOUT needing a Mulligan will beat those who needed a Mulligan for their score.

    To enter a Mulligan: put in your predicted outcome in the regular table of 8 games. Then, in the Mulligan section, add your selected Mulligan game a second time, but this time with the alternative result.

    NO entries/edits after the starting whistle of the first quarterfinal game (France - Germany).

    July 4 France vs Germany
    July 4 Brazil vs Colombia
    July 5 Argentina vs Belgium
    July 5 Netherlands vs Costa Rica

    Examples:
    GAME--------------------------WINNER----------------SCORE-------------PENALTIES(if draw)
    Brazil - Colombia----------------Brazil------------------- 3-1-----------------
    Netherlands - Costa Rica------- Netherlands-------------- 0-0 ----------------- 5-3
    MULLIGAN GAME
    GAME--------------------------WINNER----------------SCORE-------------PENALTIES(if draw)
    Brazil - Colombia--------------- Colombia-------------- 1-0 -----------------


    Okay, go for it!!
