Week 12, check that, Week 13 update

Hey guys, sorry there was no update last week. With the holidays and shit, I never got around to it. I'm a bum, I don't know what else to say. I'll make up for it this week by giving some in depth analysis.

College Football. Ok, I'm going to through each person's pre season predictions for the conference championship games. The way they worked out were like this

Big 12 Championship

Nebraska vs Texas
predicted game exactly (45 points) - Adam, Joe, Voyten, Geiss
Got at least 1 team (15 Pts) - Jim, Folden, Andrew, Colin, Munez
Got neither (0 Pts) - Rob

ACC Championship

Georgia Tech vs Clemson

Predicted game exactly (45 pts) - nobody
Got at least 1 team right (15) - Voyten
Got neither (0) - everybody else

SEC Championship

Florida vs Alabama

Predicted Game Exactly (45) - Joe, Colin
Predicted 1 team correctly (15) - everybody else

MAC Championship Game

Central Michigan vs Ohio

Predicted game exactly (45) - nobody
Predicted 1 team correctly (15) - Adam, Jim, Geiss, Folden, Joe
Predicted neither (0) - Voyten, Rob, Munez, Colin, Andrew

Conference USA Championship Game

East Carolina vs Houston

Predicted game exactly (45) - Adam, Geiss, Jim, Voyten, Joe
Predicted one team correctly (15) Andrew, Folden, Rob, Colin
Predicted neither (0) Munez

So if you add that up, you get these totals

Joe - 150 pts
Adam 120
Geiss 120
Voyten 120
Jim 90
Colin 75
Folden 60
Andrew 45
Rob 30
Munez 30

Big ups go to Joe, who correctly predicted three games exactly right. Panty moistening foresight right there.

Next week, I'll have the totals for the Conference champion predictions as several are still up for grabs. Big ups also go to the Conferences for their scheduling this year. Aside from the 5 conference championship games this week, Oregon & Oregon St play each other for the PAC 10 title, and Cinci & Pitt play each other for the Big East title.

That means that as of right now only 4 of the 11 conferences have been decided. Those winners, so far, are TCU in the Mountain West, Ohio State in the Big 10, Boise in the WAC, and Troy St in the Sun Belt. The total updates for college will come next week.

College Pick 'Em

At one point this year, I was running through the college pick 'em at a rampant and insatiable pace. Well, I peaked too early, and now my lead has been knocked down to 1 point with one week left in the regular season. Our totals on the season.

Adam 142
Andrew 141
Folden 137
Colin 131
Munez 130
Joe 129
Geiss 127
Rob 125
Jim 124
Voyten 121

Congrats to Rob on getting out of the cellar here. It took awhile, but he's pulled himself up to 8th.

Next up, let's go to the NFL. Here are the pick 'em totals so far (without counting Pittsburgh game or NE & NO games).

Jim 125
Munez 121
Colin 121
Folden 117
Geiss 117
Rob 115
Adam 113
Voyten 112
Andrew 111
Joe 109

This coming off of Geiss having a ball hanging 12 out of 14 to go up the rung a little bit. Not much else changing though. Let's see what two weeks of no updates has done with the overall pick 'em total.

Adam 255
Folden 254
Andrew 252
Colin 252
Munez 251
Jim 249
Geiss 244
Rob 240
Joe 238
Voyten 233

This could change a tiny bit, depending on a couple of things. Joe, Folden, & Geiss picked Pittsburgh. So depending on how these games go, the scores could change a tiny bit.

So Indi clinched their division today. Without a doubt so much earlier, than you would think. That means that everybody will get points for that, aside for Munez, who didn't have Indi even in the playoffs, and Colin who had Tennessee winning that division.

It's official too, Geiss & Joe's prediction of Chicago to win the NFC North is now impossible. I believe that since Minnesota has the tie breaker over GB for winning their two head to head games, that Minnesota needs just one more victory & one more GB loss to clinch their division. It's official that Colin and Rob's pick of Carolina won't be winning their division. Rob also had them in the Super Bowl, and although it may still be mathematically possible for them to make the playoffs. It is a long to the 12th power shot.

In the AFC West it appears that the Cardinals are going to win their division again. The 49ers still have a shot, with a relatively easy schedule remaining, and one more game against the Cardinals still ahead. Seattle is all but out of it, 3 games out of first, with 5 remaining. This is good for Jim, Folden, Colin, Rob, & Joe, who each have Arizona winning that division.

In the NFC East not one of us had Dallas winning that division. They have a one game lead over Phili and a two game lead over NYG with 5 to play.

Everybody picked NE to win their division and they are well on their way of accomplishing that. In the AFC West San Diego has a 1 game lead over the Broncos, who finally regained their V card against the Giants. The Broncos are 7-4, a team that 6 out of the 10 of us had finishing in the worst three teams in the league this year.

The three worst teams in the NFL right now are Tampa Bay, Cleveland, & St. Louis who all sit at 1-10. I'll be back tomorrow or Tuesday with our overall totals so far for the season & Fantasy Football updates. Next weekend I'll tally up all of the College Football Preseason Predictions and let everybody know where they stand. Until then, smell ya later.

Week 11 Results

Ok, so as far as predictions go, I'm going to wait to add up anymore of those points until the college regular season ends. It's just a lot of math to do everyday week in and week out. So let's just put it like this, 6 of us are getting the points for Ohio State winning the Big 10. Jim and I are likely the only ones getting the points for the MWC, if TCU wins one of their last two games. Nobody is getting points for the PAC 10. That's it so far. Onto the pick 'ems.

College Football

Colin decided to abstain from the first 8 games of the day this week, and then decided to pick incorrectly on the next 8, scoring only 4 points for the week. Coming into this week, Colin was tied with me for the overall pick 'em lead. This hurt him pretty badly. Here are the totals.

Munez - 12
Geiss - 11
Rob - 11
Adam - 10
Andrew - 10
Jim - 9
Voyten - 9
Joe - 7
Folden - 7
Colin - 4


Adam 124
Andrew 118
Folden 117
Munez 113
Colin 112
Joe 111
Geiss 111
Jim 109
Voyten 106
Rob 104

Pro Pick 'em went like this, this week.

Munez 10
Rob 10
Voyten 10
Adam 9
Joe 9
Folden 9
Colin 9
Jim 7
Andrew 7
Geiss 6

On the season

Munez 99
Colin 98
Jim 98
Folden 94
Adam 92
Rob 92
Geiss 92
Voyten 89
Andrew 88
Joe 87

So the pick 'em total for the year now is

Adam 216
Munez 212
Folden 211
Colin 210
Jim 207
Andrew 206
Geiss 203
Joe 198
Rob 196
Voyten 195

In fantasy, my team failed miserably for the 8th time this season, giving Folden the victory. Andrew put up another huge day, winning again. Shawn took it to Rob handily. Jimbo squeezed it out against Colin. And The Glove went down to Geiss. This is Munez's first loss since the first week of the season, when he lost to Geiss. After that Munez went on a tear, finding a way to win against all other 8 of us. His only kryptonite left is Geiss. After 10 games in the season, less than 5 points seperates those too.

So fantasy bonus's look like this.

Munez 80
Voyten 70
Geiss 60
Colin 60
Andrew 50
Joe 40
Rob 40
Folden 40
Jim 40
Adam 20


Munez 292
Colin 270
Voyten 265
Geiss 263
Andrew 256
Folden 251
Jim 247
Joe 238
Adam 236
Rob 236

I'll give college prediction updates in 2 weeks

week 10 results - let's get to this one nice and early

Well boys, sorry once again for all of the lateness. had a crazy week. college football is starting to shape up, meaning that we have our first successful predictions of the year. So, from now on, we will have a 4th category in the totals, this one being the successful predictions category. This week, Florida and Bama locked up their inevitable match up in the SEC title game, giving everybody 15 points for picking that correctly. However, Joe and Colin had Bama in the game, too. This gives them an additional 15 points for that, plus 15 more points for picking the exact game. So, the way it looks for prediction points is this.

Colin/Joe 45
Everyone else 15

In Big 12 north news, it appears that the last game of the regular season between Nebraska and Kansas St could be the decider on who plays (most likely) Texas for the Big 12 championship. That's a suprise, and it's a meaningful game, because several people picked Nebraska to play for the Big 12 championship this year.

In other Big 12 news, Rob's national championship team, Oklahoma, dropped to 5-4 on the season.

The ACC is shaping up. Clemson (who none of us picked) controls their own destiny in the ACC Atlantic divison. The only other team with a shot to displace them is BC (who none of us picked)
On the other side, GT also controls their own destiny, needing only to defeat Duke to win the ACC coastal division. If this happens, it will guarantee that Voyten is the only person that will gain prediction points off of the ACC this season.

The Big East has scheduled intelligently again, their top 3 teams, Cinci, Pitt, and WVU, play each other for the Big East title in the next few weeks. All three teams are esentially in a win out and you're in situation. Cinci and WVU did so, suspectly holding off the Big East's bottom rung teams, while Pitt looked strong again. Geiss, Jim, & Joe have WVU winning the Big East, while Shawn, Andrew, and Munez have Pitt.

The Big 10 is essentially down to Iowa and Ohio St. Meaning that if Ohio St can win out, myself, Geiss, Jim, Shawn, Andrew, and Munez will gain points. If Iowa wins, then nobody will get any points.

Conference USA remains my favorite conference to follow for football God on a week to week basis. Houston's awesome comeback against Tulsa knocked them out of contention for the conference, assuring that Rob & Munez won't correctly predict the champion. However, the rest of us, who chose ECU, Marshall, Houston, and Southern Miss to win the conference are still very much alive. Also, Southern Methodist remains a contender. However, they would need Houston to slip up to have a chance.

The Mountain West has their biggest game of the season coming up next weekend. TCU welcomes Utah to their home in a game that could essentially seal the Mountain West for them if they win. If they lose, then Utah is in the drivers seat, but still has BYU to play. Jim & I both had TCU winning it, while the rest of the field is split between BYU and Utah. Also, Colin's Colorado St pick is now 0-5 in conference play. Shoot yourself in the head.

The MAC is still clogged up and not worth talking about. 5 people's choices are out, 5 of ours still have chances.

The Sun Belt is Troy's to lose, and the WAC still has all of it's big games to be played.

Oregon's loss has opened the PAC 10 to all sorts of wonderful scenarios. Oregon and Arizona are currently in the lead, with Stanford, Oregon St, and USC all one game behind. Oregon still has to play Arizona & Stanford. Arizona still plays Oregon & USC. Stanford plays USC next weekend. USC stanford and Arizona. And Oregon St plays Oregon. Tons of shit could still happen here.

So that's where we stand. One month of college football left, and this is all that's left to be done.

Onto the Pick 'Em. 14 out of the 22 games featured the underdog's beating the spread. This led to most people being near .500 or under for the week. Here are the totals.

Jim 12
Joe 12
Adam 11
Geiss 11
Rob 11
Folden 10
Voyten 9
Munez 9
Colin 9
Andrew 8

This brings the season totals to this

Adam 114
Folden 110
Colin 108
Andrew 108
Joe 104
Munez 101
Geiss 100
Jim 100
Voyten 97
Rob 93

With only 4 more weeks left in the regular season. I'll explain to you guys how the pay goes out for this. I looked up the rules a bit ago, because I didn't remember what we had said, and the way it works is this. The person who wins the college and pro pick 'em combined wins the $20 beans. I thought all year that these two were seperate, however I was wrong.

What this also means though is that when Bowl Season comes around we start things over. Each bowl game is done in pick 'em form with the regular bowls being worth 2 points and the BCS games 5. The NFL play off games are worth 5 points each and escalate throughout the rounds. We'll get more into that the further we get into the season. I realize that Football God rules need tweaked for next year, so any qualms you have with the structure this year make a note of and let me know.

NFL info tomorrow and Monday
