What's up guys. I realize it's been awhile since you've had an elaborate update, so I'll do my best today.
I'm going to start by announcing the last two bonus's that occured.
Andrew received a 30 point bonus for winning the pro pick'em, while Shawn received the last 5 point bonus for getting an impressive 13 of 16 games correct.
I received a 30 point bonus for winning fantasy football. So, I'm going to go through all the points that each person has right now in each category. After this week, I will only be including the points that have occured in the most recent week.
As far as pro picks that we haven't gone through yet. The only people to get any of the 4 wildcard teams are Joe and Rob, they both got the Bengals.
As far as the worst 3 teams in the league.
Jacksonville - Jim, Adam, Andrew, Joe, Munez, Rob, Colin, & John
Oakland - Adam
KC - noone
Our Pro Prediction totals are as follows
College Pick 'em
Professional Pick 'em
Fantasy Football bonus points included)
Prediction Points Totals (College & Pro)
Pick'em Bonus points
So this will give us our regular season totals. Here's where we stand with these. This does not count any NFL post season predictions, regular season awards, college bowl pick'em or NFL playoff pick 'em.
NOW MORE THAN EVER IS THE TIME TO DOUBLE CHECK YOUR OWN SCORE, AS WELL AS MINE. I WON'T BE REFERING TO THESE NUMBERS AGAIN, SO IF YOU ARE CLOSE DO YOUR OWN DUE DILIGENCE HERE.
Most of the reason why I did the scoring this way is because I was getting a little bit overwhelmed with the calculations. If you find any scoring to be incorrect let me know.
Bowl Pick 'em
Bowl Pick'em works like this. All of the games leading up to the BCS were worth 2 points. The BCS games are worth 5 points, and the championship is worth 10 points. With only the championship & Go Daddy bowl left to play let's see where we stand.
Rob 20 bowls (40 points) + 3 BCS games (15 points)= 55 points
Adam 19 bowls (38 points) + 3 BCS games (15 points) = 53 points
Munez 21 bowls (42 points) + 2 BCS games (10 points)=52 points
Andrew 18 bowls (36 points)+ 3 BCS games (15 points) = 51 points
Colin 17 bowls (34 points) + 3 BCS games (15 ponts) =49 points
Folden 19 bowls (38 points) + 2 BCS games (15 points)= 48 points
Joe 18 bowls (36 points) + 2 BCS games (10 points)=46 points
Shawn 18 bowls (36 points)+2 BCS games (10 points)=46 points
Jim 18 bowls (36 points) + 2 BCS games (10 points) = 46 points
John 4 bowls (8)points + 0 BCS games (0 points) = 8 points
The bowl game pick 'em is going to come down to these last two games. There is a 10 point bonus for the winner of the bowl pick 'em so this could be meaningful with how close things are.
Now let's look at the NFL post season pick'em. Each of the games this weekend was worth 5 points. Same goes for next week.
So, our total scores now will be Regular season number + bowl pick'em + pro post season pick'em
1. Adam 828
2. Andrew 825 (-3)
3. Colin 783 (-45)
4. Rob 782 (-46)
5. Joe 778 (-50)
6. Munez 768 (60)
7. Folden 667 (-161)
8. Shawn 641 (-187)
9. Jim 547
10. John 466
So there are your standings. Next week, I will start with these numbers, without adding all the others together again.
Next week, the bowl pick'em bonus will be awarded, as well as points for picking the AFC & NFC championship games.
Incredibly, in the AFC out of the 20 teams that the ten of us picked for the championship game, only 4 have been eliminated. Those are from the 4 people who have picked the Steelers (Jim, Shawn, John, and Munez)
9 of us (excluding Shawn) have both NE and GB in the AFC and NFC championship, so if you get that prediction correct, don't expect to make up any ground.
As you all can see, 15 points is the difference between 3rd and 6th, and 60 points the difference between 1st and 6th.
So, next week we could see some gaps close or widen. Good luck and suck my dick.
