Contest Rules for WRFC-AM 960 The Ref

WRFC-AM, WGAU-AM/W254CJ, WGMG-FM, WXKT-FM, WPUP-FM, WNGC-FM 

Unless otherwise specified, these Official Rules apply to any promotion (whether called a "sweepstakes" or a "contest") on the above stations. If official rules other than these Official Rules apply to a particular promotion, those official rules will be posted on this website and identified by the name of the promotion. 

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR TO WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. ALL FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL AND MUNICIPAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. 

Eligibility. Subject to the additional restrictions below, contests and sweepstakes (collectively, a "Contest") are open to legal U.S. residents residing in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. Employees of Cox Radio, Inc. d/b/a Cox Media Group Athens ("Sponsor") and each of its respective affiliated companies, subsidiaries, and advertising and promotional agencies, and the family members of, and any persons domiciled with, any such employees, are not eligible to enter or to win. The term "family members" includes spouses, parents, grandparents, siblings, children, grandchildren and in-laws, regardless of where they live. Persons belonging to or affiliated with a professional acting, theater, or film-making organization, such as SAG or AFTRA, are not allowed to compete in the Contest or participate in any entry. Professional actors and filmmakers, whether full-time or part-time, are allowed to compete so long as they do not belong to any professional organizations connected with the entertainment industry that would cause Sponsor to pay the entrant or any other person a fee or any other benefit for taking part in any Contest event. 

How to Enter. The Contest will take place between the start and end times and dates stated on-air (the "Contest Period"). Sponsor will specify on which radio station(s) the Contest will take place (each, a “Station”). Sponsor will be the official timekeeper for the Contest. 

• If the Contest requires entrants to call-in to win: 

Listen to the applicable Station for Sponsor to identify the cue-to-call to try to be the designated caller. Sponsor may also identify a task, if any, that the designated caller must perform on the call (e.g., answer a trivia question), as well as the phone number to call in (the "Contest Line"). When you hear the cue, call the Contest Line at the appropriate time to try to be the designated caller and perform any applicable task. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and any other criteria announced on-air, the designated caller will be announced a winner. Sponsor will decide, in its sole discretion, whether a participant has met all criteria to be announced a winner. 

To be declared a winner for call-in Contests: (a) you must be listening to the station when the cue to call the Contest Line airs; (b) you must be declared by Sponsor to be the designated caller and perform any applicable task to Sponsor's satisfaction; and (c) you must comply with all other terms and conditions of these Official Rules and any other rules announced on air. Telephone calls will be taken by Contest operators in the order they are received, and the operators will count the number of calls received after each on-air Contest announcement to determine the designated caller. The determinations of Sponsor and Contest operators will be final and binding in all respects. 

Enter as often as you like, provided that using automatic telephone dialing equipment or other software or computer-assisted dialing equipment is prohibited and will result in disqualification. 

Entry into a call-in Contest shall be deemed consent to record any telephone conversation between a potential winner and Sponsor. Listeners accessing Sponsor’s radio station audio via IP connections like website-based streaming or mobile devices are welcome to enter. However, Sponsor cannot be responsible for delays in electronic transmission of station audio to IP devices. By entering the Contest, listeners acknowledge and agree to this specific provision of these Official Rules. 

In addition, Sponsor will not be responsible for loss of service to a Contest Line or for a participant’s failure to reach a Contest Line due to malfunction of any network or system, congestion, any technical or human error, failures or malfunctions of any kind, including the congestion, overload, busy signals, or any other factor that may prevent an individual from completing his/her phone call. In the event of interruption of power or telephone service to Sponsor during call-in period of a Contest prior to accepting the correct caller, or a change in programming that results in Sponsor’s inability to air call-in opportunity, Sponsor will not replay the affected call-in opportunity and the number of prizes awarded in the Contest will be reduced accordingly. If the correct caller is ineligible, or fails to comply with any term of condition of these Official Rules, that caller will be disqualified, and Sponsor will resume the call-in opportunity and declare the next caller a winner, pending verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. 

 

Telephone calls will be taken by Contest operators in the order they are received, and the operators will count the number of calls received after each on-air Contest cue-to-call to determine the correct caller. The determinations of Sponsor and Contest operators will be final and binding in all respects. 

 

In the event a caller gets disconnected for any reason before being declared a winner, Sponsor may resume the call-in opportunity affected and declare the next caller a winner, pending verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Sponsor will not be responsible for dropped calls from mobile devices or land lines and dropped calls may result in a potential winner’s disqualification and forfeiture of all interest in any prize. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons who submit false or misleading entry information or who Sponsor determines to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Contest. 

 

Any winning entrant must be the same person who originally dialed the phone to the radio station to the radio station to participate in a Contest. No family members, friends, office associates, or any other person will be allowed to participate in a Contest on another person’s behalf. An entrant must provide his or her own name as listed on his or her valid Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, or Tennessee driver’s license or Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, or Tennessee state-issued ID (or other proof of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, or Tennessee residency, such as a copy of a utility bill), subject to the Contest’s eligibility requirements. If a participant uses a false name on any ID submitted as proof of identification, he or she will be immediately disqualified from the Contest and be ineligible to win any prize. 

 

Winner Selection and Odds: The maximum number of winners will be announced. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible participants and the order in which calls are received. 

• If the Contest requires entrants to like or comment on a Social Media Platform post: 

Contests may be offered via Sponsor’s social media channels (e.g., Instagram®, Facebook®, Twitter®) (collectively, “Social Media Platforms”). 

To enter, you must have the required Social Media Platform account registered under your name and you must be signed on to that account when you enter. Listen to the station for Sponsor to cue listeners to like or comment on a specific post on the Station's Social Media Platform page and to announce any other entry criteria for entry. When you hear the cue, go to the Station's Social Media Platform page and like or comment on the specified post at the appropriate time in accordance with any announced criteria. Unless otherwise specified, if the Contest requires entry by liking a post, Sponsor will select a winner through a random drawing among all eligible entrants. 

If the Contest requires entry by commenting on a post, Sponsor will announce the criteria for designating a potential winner (e.g., the sixth person to comment) prior to the Contest Period and any other required content, such as custom hashtags (e.g., “#contest”) or tagging the Sponsor (e.g., “@Star945”). Sponsor will count comments in the order they are received, and all comments received by Sponsor will be counted for the purpose of determining the winning entry. Sponsor may delete or decline to publish some comments during the Contest Period, but these will not be excluded from Sponsor's count. Only a valid entry submitted in compliance with these Official Rules may win. If Sponsor decides, in its sole discretion, that a potential winner's entry does not comply, Sponsor may designate the next valid entry to be the winning entry. 

In the event of a dispute, an entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the owner of the Social Media Platform account from which the entry is submitted, provided that such person satisfies all other Contest eligibility requirements. The Contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by or associated with any Social Media Platform. 

Winner Selection and Odds: The maximum number of winners will be announced. Odds depend on the number of eligible participants.

Georgia Sports News

  • ATHENS Georgia quarterback D'Wan Mathis was back in his home state of Michigan over spring break when the coronavirus pandemic began to take effect. Some of the Bulldogs' players would end up staying home when UGA suspended and then canceled face-to-face spring semester classes. But not Mathis. 'D'Wan came back on spring break and told me he loves where he is from, but that he needed to go back to Georgia,' Terence Mathis told DawgNation on Friday. 'He said, Daddy, I love you, but I'm leaving.' 'For us, we're just happy he was granted the exemption to stay near campus where they have the best doctors in the world keeping up with him.' The former Ohio State quarterback commit from metro Detroit has had a challenging rehabilitation period after an emergency brain surgery procedure last May 23 put him in the ICU unit at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center. 'I want the public to know this, please write this: Georgia could have given up on my son,' Terence Mathis said. 'But instead, Kirby and his staff have treated D'Wan as though he was their own son. They've used every possible resource to stay behind him and keep him engaged with the team after saving his life.' RELATED: Georgia saved my son's life, medical director Ron Courson praised Indeed, Coach Kirby Smart made it clear last May that Georgia would not rush Mathis' comeback, and they planned for a complete recovery. 'We are expecting a full recovery, and the timeline is the least of our concerns,' Smart said at SEC spring meetings. Mathis' comeback has come in stages. He was cleared to run and lift last July. By the start of the 2019 season, he was participating in limited drill work. By last November, Mathis running the scout team offense and playing with such passion that coaches and doctors had to reel him in and remind him to use some restraint. Mathis was cleared to go through spring football drills, though it's important to note he's not yet been cleared for game action. There's an MRI test scheduled for May that could provided the all-important clearance for total contact (UGA doesn't tackle its quarterbacks in spring drills). More good news came on Friday, when the SEC added some provisions for coaches to instruct players. Mathis, along with fellow Georgia football quarterbacks Jamie Newman, Caron Beck and Stetson Bennett, has the benefit of chalk talks starting at 1 p.m. next Monday. RELATED: SEC moves toward resuming football preparations Terence Mathis maintains the football will take care of itself. He said the most important thing to the Mathis family is how D'Wan has been accepted into the Georgia football community. 'I'm indebted to Georgia, they have extended this incredible opportunity to D'Wan,' Terence Mathis said. 'Especially during these tough times, and you know it's bad up here in Michigan. 'It means everything to us as a family for him to now have the opportunity to be involved with the football planning while still pursuing academics. 'Coach (Todd) Monken has reached out to me and let me know that D'Wan is having positive progress.' Mathis' upside was obvious to all who watched last year's G-Day Game. The 6-foot-6, 205-pounder was 15-of-28 passing for 113 yards and provided one of the biggest highlights of the Georgia football spring game. Mathis, who ran a 10.8-second time in the 100 meters in high school, showed his speed when he caught a double-reverse pass from Matt Landers for a 39-yard touchdown. TRICK PLAY ALERT #GDay #GoDawgs pic.twitter.com/3Qc6Opb85L Georgia Football (@GeorgiaFootball) April 21, 2019 'D'Wan, he's explosive,' Jake Fromm said of his former understudy. 'I think he converted three or four first downs in a row with his legs. 'The guy can run the ball, he can throw it 70 yards, he's going to be a great player.' The strong performances in spring drills kept Mathis going during the dog days of last summer and into the season. But there were also frustrating times when D'Wan Maths didn't know what to do without football, unable to travel to away games. That's when Georgia came up biggest, according to his father. 'As frustrated as he got, the more they wrapped their arms around him,' Terence Mathis said. 'Those coaches could have said they were too busy trying to win the SEC East again and play for another league title. But they didn't say that. 'They believed in D'Wan, and they have stayed behind him, and the DawgNation fans have stayed behind him, too.' There is no timetable for college football to return at the time of this publication (March 28). The coronavirus has put all group activities around the world on hold. But Terence Mathis said his son will remain in Athens. 'That's what he considers his home now,' he said, 'and it's where we believe he belongs.'

  • We've now reached the Final Four. Not of the NCAA Tournament but of the top Georgia football moments that have occurred under Kirby Smart. We now have the representatives for each season 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 that Smart has guided the Georgia program. The 2016 winner was the top seed, being Nick Chubb's return against North Carolina. The game also gave Smart his first career win, while Chubb ran for over 200 yards in his first game back. The 2017 pick is the runaway favorite to win, as that year is being repped by Sony Michel's game-ending touchdown run against Oklahoma. It's hard to imagine this moment somehow not winning the whole bracket, given how dominant that moment is been in voting up to this point. The 2018 selection was D'Andre Swift's touchdown run against Auburn, which capped Swift's best-career game in a Georgia uniform. And the representative for the past season was Georgia's 23-17 win over Notre Dame. The big highlight from that game was the light show that took place between the third and fourth quarters, though Lawrence Cager's touchdown catch. The Swift run will take on the 2019 Notre Dame game, while Chubb's return has the unfortunate matchup against Michel's final Rose Bowl touchdown. You can vote on the results below, as well as see the full brackets as to how we got to this point. Full Bracket 2016 vs. 2017 region No. 1 Sony Michel's walk-off against Oklahoma vs.No. 1 Nick Chubb's return Breakdown:Michel dominated again, winning 92-8 over the 2017 Notre Dame take over. Michel's game-winning touchdown run is the heavy favorite to win the entire bracket. Think back to how great it felt in that moment for the Bulldogs to punch their ticket to Atlanta. Chubb's return also advanced to this point with relative ease, beating Jacob Eason's winner against Mizzou by a 72-28 margin. This was Chubb's first game back after a horrific knee injury against Tennessee in his sophomore season. He came out and ran for 222 yards, the second-most in his illustrious Georgia career. The result also gave Georgia a win over North Carolina in Smart's first-ever game as Georgia's head coach.

  • DawgNation has four staffers who cover Georgia football from every angle: Beat, live streams, photos, podcasts, recruiting, etc. The 'Cover 4' concept is: 1) Present a topic; 2) Offer a reasoned response; 3) Share a brisk statement on that opinion. 4) Pepper the page with photos for the big picture. For this edition, we discuss what Georgia fans would have been talking about now had COVID-19 not put our way of life on hold. DawgNation continues with the 'Cover 4' concept. The focus is always a timely look with each of our guys manning the secondary on a pertinent topic. We're looking at our now useless Georgia spring practice schedule from earlier this year. It makes us wince. Poof. All of that is gone. But football will return. Someday. Hopefully soon. That schedule says the 2020 Bulldogs would have been six practices deep into their spring drills after today. What would have DawgNation been talking about right now? We closed our eyes and imagined what that would have looked like. It resulted in another 'Cover 4' discussion of four different aspects of the team. It was fun to do amidst a time of great renewal for the Georgia program. Well, except for a salty defense which should be the best of the Kirby Smart era in Athens. The quick in-and-out game remains. The Cover 4 is designed to come out as quick as everyone is to try to maintain their social distancing these days. What would have been the big Georgia football spring practice storyline right now? Brandon Adams: Jamie Newman The 'why' from 'DawgNation Daily' here: 'The quarterback is almost always the biggest story, and this certainly would've been the case with Newman. The absence of spring practice only increases our anticipation to see Newman's debut this fall .' Mike Griffith: The offensive line The 'why' from 'On the Beat' here: 'This is the area Kirby Smart is most concerned about, and he'll say it. There will be discussion about different players lining up in different places, and injury updates . ' Connor Riley: Todd, Todd, Todd Monken The 'why' from 'Good Day UGA' here: ' Between Smart and some offensive players, we'd have gotten to hear more about working with the new offensive coordinator and what he brings to the table, as well as the working dynamic with Smart.' Jeff Sentell: The need for more playmakers at receiver. Again. The Intel here: 'Kirby Smart made it clear last spring he didn't have enough playmakers at receiver. He wanted to see what Dominick Blaylock, Lawrence Cager and George Pickens could add to the unit. It would have been the same chorus this year. The only differences between the receivers practicing last spring would have been the subtraction of veterans J.J Holloman and Tyler Simmons and the addition of Pickens and Justin Robinson. The Bulldogs will again await the arrival of Jermaine Burton, Marcus Rosemy, Ladd McConkey and Arian Smith with great anticipation. When they hit the field, that's when we will get a glimpse of where Monken's new offense can take Georgia this fall.'

  • ATHENS Georgia and its new quarterback will be among the favorites when college football resumes, per the latest online odds from sportsbetting.ag. Wake Forest graduate transfer Jamie Newman is ranked fifth among the Heisman Trophy contenders without having even taken his first snap for the Bulldogs. To boot, Newman along with the rest of SEC players has just now gotten approval to receive online 'chalk talk' instruction from quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator Todd Monken starting at 1 p.m. on Monday. Former Georgia quarterback Justin Fields is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy at Ohio State (+450), followed by Clemson's Trevor Lawrence (+475), Oklahoma's Spencer Rattler (+1000), Texas' Sam Ehlinger (+1200) and then Newman (+1400). Other SEC quarterbacks among the favorites include Florida's Kyle Trask, who is tied for ninth with USC QB Kedon Slovis (+2500), Alabama QB Mac Jones and North Carolina QB Sam Howell. Tailback Zamir White is tied for 25th among the Heisman Trophy contenders listed (+6600). But White, like Newman, has yet to secure the starting spot at his position entering into what will be a unique yet still very competitive offseason. SEC teams are currently suspended from any on-campus activities and are social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic. Once play resumes, Georgia figures to be in as good as shape as any program in the nation.
