• WEEK ONE TOP SCORE:  Six people tied for the top score: Richard Magann, Brett Fry, Max Briese, Michael Falen and Chris Robinson.   Its for that reason that we aren’t doing a “weekly winner” prize this year. I suspect we have some weeks where we have even more ties at the top.
  • The group and lock winning percentages were abysmal:  31.9% and 15.6%, respectively. A fitting start, really. 2020 continues to rear its ugly head.
  • Since only five games were played, participants were spared the shame of an 0-6 week. However, we did have 17 people go 0-5.
  • Only 9 people scored at least 100 points.
  • Favorites were only 1-5, hence the terrible group winning percentage.
  • The group majority was 0-6. In other words: zero and six.
  • The group majority was 9-5-1.
  • Syracuse was the only underdog to receive the majority of the picks. They had the game covered until late in the 4th quarter.
  • Iowa State was the most popular lock. Loser.


  • WEEK TWO TOP SCORE:  Reid Ainsworth. He was the only person to go undefeated. 17 people went 4-1.
  • The group and lock winning percentages were better than last week, but still terrible:  40.0% and 30.7%, respectively. There is always next week.
  • The average score was 43.1 points. Thru two weeks, the average is 41.4 points. Last year, the weekly average was 66.2 points.
  • The group majority was only 1-4, bringing the yearly total to 1-10.
  • OSU was easily the most popular pick of the week. They barely escaped with a win, let alone covering the spread.
  • The leaderboard is pretty ugly right now. Reid Ainsworth leads the way with a 9-2 record.
  • Only 4 people have at least 8 wins. Last year, there were 85 people that had 8+ wins thru two weeks. Granted, we are a game short, but still.



“Week One”, or whatever you want to call it, is here.  It is actually the third weekend games have been played, but its the first weekend we’ll see Power 5 schools.  This weekend’s slate of games is…..not good.  It was bare to begin with, and the recent COVID-19 induced postponements have created some slim pickens.  It’s not the most promising or eventful start to the season, but we tread forward.

Here is a link to the 2020 rules.  Go to the pick form tab to make your selections.   Good Luck!
