Thanks again Kurtis for all your help this year. I could not do this without you. Now, onto the results…
WEEK FOURTEEN RESULTS
- WEEK FOURTEEN WINNER: Rusty Moore. The last hurrah of the year went to Rusty. He ended a disappointing season with a bang by capturing the weekly prize. He beat out four other participants who went 6-0. Interestingly, they all scored 121 points.
- The group winning and lock winning percentages were solid: 50.6% and 50.1%, respectively.
- For the season, the overall winning percentage (49.6%) was slightly better than the lock percentage (48.2%)
- Four people went 6-0.
- The final tally for the season: 6-0 occurred 70. 0-6 occurred 94 times.
- The OU vs Texas rematch was the most popular game, with the picks being pretty evenly distributed. 158 picks for OU. 101 picks for Texas. A called-back kick return secured the cover for the Sooners.
- The next two most popular picks (Alabama and Boise State), failed to cover the spread.
- The group majority went with the underdog in only three games: Akron, California and Pitt. Akron was the only one to cover.
- For the year, the “Majority 6” and Group Majority were exactly .500.
- Generally speaking, it was a pretty average week for the Week 13 Top Ten. Tony Schroeder and Mike Stovall were the only two people to eclipse the 100-point mark, which allowed to people previously outside the Top Ten (Derek Ridgway and Jon Taber) to find their way in.
- Herb Grover and Derek Ridgway only had one 100 point week all year. They are the only two people in the Top Ten without at least two 100 point weeks.
- The gap between 1st and 3rd (55 points) is the same as the gap between 10th and 29th.
- The Lock Race: Cory W captured the “Lock of the Week” Title. He finished 12-2, which was 1 game better than anyone else. There was a four-way tie for second in the lock race. Derek Ridgway, Jon Taber, Christopher McIntosh and Dan Bright all went 11-3. Derek wins the tie breaker by having the most total points.
- On the other end of the spectrum, Doug Reigle and Bart Brewer had 2-12 lock records.
- The Best Finish Award: Richie Howells won the prize with a solid 19-5 record over the final four weeks. He jumped from 192nd after Week 10 to a final position of 19th.
- The Elimination Bracket: Peter Sanborn beat out Steve McLanahan for the title.
