    So here it is. This is a simple game. For each round of the FA Cup (starting with 3rd round), you can pick any matchup of your choosing and you select a winner. If your team wins, you move on to the next round. If you don't pick, your team loses, or they go to a replay, you are eliminated. You can only choose a team once.

    Matchups are here (under Third Round Proper): 2016–17 FA Cup - Wikipedia

    My pick: Ipswich Town (2) over Lincoln City (5)

    Division in parenthesis.

    Well, my pick (Ipswich) is heading for a replay at Lincoln. Lincoln had the league twice too.

    Brentford and Wyconbe advance.
    Stoke loses to Wolverhampton

    Great day. Spent 4 hours in a conference room for a strategic planning meeting. Spilled a sandwich all over the floor (dramatically) in front of all my partners. Almost wiped out in the snow driving home. And found that I made it all of zero rounds in the first time I've ever played an elimination.

    Lousy day. The Lions winning, and interfering with Edsall's time for another week, would make it perfect.

    The draw is tomorrow afternoon.

    So shizzle, if Ipswich wins the replay, would you and I still be alive, or are we out b/c they drew the other day?

    We're both out unfortunately. It's printed in the rules at the top.

    Here's the 4th round for FA Cup. Very few all EPL match ups... actually, none scheduled so far, and only the potential of 2 depending on what the replay results are next week (Southampton v Arsenal (if Southampton beat Norwich) and Palace v City (if Palace beat Bolton). Otherwise not too many super compelling match ups at first glance

    FA Cup fourth-round draw in full:
    Tottenham v Wycombe Wanderers
    Derby County v Leicester City
    Oxford United v Birmingham City/Newcastle United
    Sutton United/AFC Wimbledon v Cambridge United/Leeds United
    Liverpool/Plymouth Argyle v Wolves
    Norwich City/Southampton v Arsenal
    Ipswich Town/Lincoln City v Brighton and Hove Albion
    Chelsea v Brentford
    Manchester United v Wigan Athletic
    Millwall v Watford
    Rochdale v Huddersfield Town
    Sunderland/Burnley v Bristol City/Fleetwood Town
    Blackburn Rovers v Blackpool/Barnsley
    Fulham v Hull City
    Middlesbrough v Accrington Stanley
    Bolton Wanderers/Crystal Palace v Manchester City
