John Stovall is out of town this week, so I’ll (Kurtis Hanni) will be filling in.

  • WEEK EIGHT WINNER: Mark Eichenberger beat out Amberlea Smith by 1 point to take the weekly title. 3 people went 6-0 and 6 people went 5-0-1. I bet they are “what-ifing” it to death.
  • Only one person went 0-6 this week, and I won’t name them. What John did last week was cruel. You say that’s not fair? Ok, I’m reasonable, it was Andrew Gilman. If it’s any consolation, 14 people had 0 wins. All the others ended either 0-5-1 or 0-4-2. FOURTEEN! Crazy high number!
  • We had 2 PUSHES this week, something never done before in PP6 history. 216 people picked those games, meaning 216 times someone shook their head in disgust. In 2015, there were only 2 pushes all year, but already in 2016 we have 5 pushes. I’m not sure what that means, but I thought it was worthwhile.
  • The most popular game was also the biggest winner. 91% picked Wisconsin -3.5 over Iowa and those 91% won.
  • In researching the Wisconsin result, I noticed a disparity. As a group, we’re much more likely to weight heavily towards picking the favorite in a landslide. Of the most lopsided games, 20 of the top 21 highest disparities went towards the favorite. In those games the favorite was 11-9. So it’s working… but for how long?
  • The first bracket games were played and 30 of 64 top seeds won. Shows seeding means nothing in PP6… or could also show that the higher seed means it’s more likely your luck could run out.



  • WEEK SEVEN WINNER:  Vincent Puckett.  We had 5 people go 6-0.  Vincent barely edged out Jeff Parks for the weekly prize.  It should also be noted that Tyler Hoisington went 6-0 for the second time this year, but he has failed to win either week.  Bitter sweet.  Mostly bitter.
  • The group winning percentage and lock winning percentages were the second best of the year:  51.7% and 61.0%, respectively.  It is also just the second time this year that the lock winning percentage was better than the overall winning percentage.
  • Only one person went 0-6 this week.  He’ll remain nameless…no he won’t.  It was Jason Kurien.
  • The most popular pick of the week, Washington State, was the biggest winner of the year.  ie:  93% of the people who made a pick in that game were winners.
  • Despite an even distribution of picks in the Stanford vs Notre Dame (65-59), there was a big disparity in the lock distribution: 17 to 3 in favor of Stanford.
  • Michael Patton had his first losing week of the year, but he still holds a 59 point lead over 2nd place.
  • The Elimination Bracket begins in week eight.  The last person in was Haley Papageorge.  The last person out was James Beins.



  • WEEK SIX WINNER:  Jeff Harbison.  Jeff scored 126 points, despite only going 5-1.  He even outscored two people that went 5-0-1.
  • The group winning percentage was average:  47.0%.  The lock percentage was slightly worse: 46.8%.
  • For the first time this year, nobody went 6-0.  Three people went 0-6.
  • Michael Patton’s absurd run continues.  He could go 0-6 the next four weeks and still have a winning record.
  • Four of the fifteen games resulted in maximum bonus points.  Prior to week six, there had only been a total of five all season.
  • North Carolina and Stanford, two of the three most popular picks, were ATS losers.
  • The group majority went for the underdog in only 4 of the 15 games.  3 of those 4 were winners.

You can find a summary of the weekly results in the “Games” tab.



Due to Hurricane Matthew, the LSU vs Florida game has been cancelled.  It appeared as Game 4 in the Week Six selection of games.  Instead of replacing the game, we are just removing it from the list. If you made a pick in that game, please resubmit your picks.  You will need to resubmit all six picks.

Miami vs Florida State and NC State vs Notre Dame are two other games that could be impacted by the storm.  As of now, the games are still scheduled to be played.
