WEEK FOURTEEN RESULTS

WEEK FOURTEEN RESULTS

  • WEEK FOURTEEN WINNER:  Justin Hess.  He was the only person to go 6-0, outscoring the next closest competitor, Rick Wampler, by 22 points.
  • The group winning and lock winning percentages were easily the worst of the year:  39.8% and 33.1%, respectively.
  • Eight people went 0-6.
  • The four most popular picks were ATS losers:  Navy, Clemson, Wisconsin and OSU.
  • Michael Patton took over 1st place in week two and had not relinquished it all year…until…Rick Wampler dropped 109 points in the final week to edge him out by 2 points.  2 measly points.  Third place, Travis Phelan, finished 91 points behind Michael.
  • The Lock Race:  Going into the final week, Andrew Rowlan had a 1/2 game lead over Zach Favors and Justin Darr.  All three of them lost their locks, which opened the way for Jason Hall and Jeff Harbison.  There was a three way tie for the best record between Jason Hall, Jeff Harbison and Andrew Rowlan.  The tie-breaker, most overall points, put Jason in 1st place, Jeff in 2nd place and Andrew in 3rd place.  Only the top two spots get paid.
  • The Best Finish Award: Cody Miller won the prize with a solid 18-6 record.
  • The Elimination Bracket:  The championship game was a massive dud.  When you score the 2nd most points of the entire group, as Rick Wampler did, you are almost assured of the victory.  When your opponent, John Eanes, goes 0-6, well…
  • Only 2 people in the top 20 of the final standings won a week.
  • Bary Holleyman finished with the worst overall record at 28-54-2, which would’ve been good enough for 3rd place if reversed.
  • The highest ranked player without a 100 point week was Russell Kent in 34th place.  The next highest was Mitch Lied in 62nd.
  • The highest ranked player with a 0 point week was Trevor Bowman in 5th place.
  • Clay Stephens was the highest ranked player with a losing lock record.  He finished in 11th place.
  • Brent Baisden was the lowest ranked player with a winning lock record.  He finished in 306th place.

WEEK THIRTEEN RESULTS

WEEK THIRTEEN RESULTS

  • WEEK THIRTEEN WINNER:  Trevor Bowman.  Our 2014 PP6 champion has quietly climbed the leaderboard in recent weeks, culminating with this weekly winning performance.    After week ten, he was in 89th place.  He is now in 4th place.  Two others went 6-0 this week.
  • The group winning and lock winning percentages were average:  48.8% and 46.0%, respectively.

  • The group majority favored the underdog in four games:  Washington State, Nebraska, Michigan State and South Carolina.  They were all losers.

WEEK TWELVE RESULTS

WEEK TWELVE RESULTS

  • WEEK TWELVE WINNER:  Cash Greathouse.  Eleven people went 6-0 this week, which is the second highest total of the year.  Tough to beat a guy named Cash Greathouse, especially when he scores 136 points.
  • This was the second best week of the year.  The winning percentage was 56.8%.  The lock percentage was an impressive 64.2%.
  • There have been the exact same number of 0-6 records as 6-0s:  58 each.
  • Michael Patton has taken a commanding 82 point lead with two weeks to go.

  • The worst lock record is Justin Manning at 1-10-1.
  • We are down to the final four in the bracket:  John Eanes, Michael Cummins, Clint Spaulding and Rick Wampler.  Mitch Lied lost his match against Clint Spaulding, despite scoring 91 points.  Rick Wampler won his matchup against Jimmy Nummy, despite scoring only 43 points.
  • Teams favored by 20 or more points went 2-4.
  • The most popular picks of the week were home grown:  OU and OSU.  Both teams won and covered, setting up a defacto Big 12 Championship game in Norman.

Happy Thanksgiving!

WEEK ELEVEN RESULTS

WEEK ELEVEN RESULTS

  • WEEK ELEVEN WINNER:  Eric Jordan.  Two people went 6-0 this week:  Eric and myself.  Eric beat me by one point and climbed out of the cellar.
  • It was another solid week for the group.  The winning percentage was 50.9%.  The lock percentage was 50.3%.
  • Despite having an almost identical winning percentage as last week, there were only 2 people that went 6-0, as compared to 12 last week.
  • For only the second time this year, nobody went 0-6.
  • I had gone 10.5 years without going 6-0 and then went back-to-back.  My streak of never collecting a dime is still intact.
  • Rick Wampler has slowly chipped away at Michael Patton’s lead.  They have separated themselves from the rest of the pack.
  • Justin Darr leads the lock race at 10-1.  Two people are 1/2 game back.  Four others are just a game back.  Justin Manning is in last at 1-9-1.
  • We are down to the elite eight in the bracket.  The highest ranked player remaining is Rick Wampler (2nd place).  The lowest ranked player is John Eanes (104th place).
  • Of the people who’ve made picks every week of the year, Bary Holleyman has the worst record:  20-44-2.  The inverse of his record would be good enough for 2nd place.
  • The most popular pick of the week, Washington, was a loser.  The least popular pick of the week, Georgia Tech, was a winner.
