• WEEK FOUR WINNER:  Kris Kubin.  Kris’ 132 points is the highest score we’ve seen this year, and it moved him from 234th place to 52nd. Dale Sheller, Patrick Nagle and Max Briese also went 6-0, but they fell short of Kris’ mark.
  • The group and lock winning percentages were below average:  49.7% and 44.4%, respectively.
  • It’s now been four straight weeks that the lock winning percentage was worse than the overall.
  • For the third time in four weeks, the 0-6’s outpaced the 6-0’s. This time it was by a margin of 5 to 4.
  • 30 people scored 100+ points, bringing the total for the year to 101.
  • John Mellish is leading the way in what’s been a pretty slow start to the year. Through four weeks, 300 points is good enough for 49th place. In 2019, you would only be in 87th place.
  • The gap between 1st place and 5th place (53 points) is the same as the gap between 10th place and 74th place.
  • I hate to bring this up. Genuinely. But, the person with the worst overall record is yours truly. Not only do I have to live with a record of 5-18-1, I also have to live in a house with boys that love reminding me of how terrible I’m doing. If I would’ve just ignored myself completely, I’d be in 2nd place.
  • We now only have nine people with a perfect lock record. Four people are only half a game back at 3-0-1.
  • Dusty Weatherly is the highest ranked participant (29th place) with a 4-0 lock record. Jason Gorsuch is the lowest ranked participant (251st).
  • 22 people have an 0-4 lock record.
  • Two of the 15 games had maximum bonus point opportunities. Notre Dame exploded in the 4th quarter to race away from Wisconsin, and Oregon State easily handled a schizophrenic USC team.
  • Arkansas was the most popular pick of the week. Rarely is the most popular pick an underdog. They continued their winning ways by upsetting A&M.
  • Michigan State was the 2nd most popular pick and easily the most popular lock. Actually, they are the most popular lock we’ve had this year. They received twice as much lock interest as the next closest team (Kansas State). They won the game but failed to cover.
  • It was a missed opportunity with Oregon State this week. Only 14 people picked them, and nobody locked them. They would’ve rewarded you with maximum bonus points.
  • The group majority picked the underdog in 7 of the 15 games.
  • Home underdogs continue their torrid pace. They were 5-2 on the week and now 15-6-1 for the year.
  • Double-digit favorites were only 1-4 ATS.
