Point Update 12-23

Hey,  last update before Christmas.  I wanted to get points in before all the NFL regular season predictions end yesterday and things get whacky again.

The biggest point change of the week was the 40 points I got from absolutely obliterating Gary's fantasy team in the finals. Gary's team did so poorly that if you doubled his point total, he would have beaten me by five points.  Such an ass kicking.

Anyway enough bragging.  In the world of prediction a couple of predictions came through.  Dallas won the NFC East.  John was the only person to have them winning that.

In Top 3 draft pick news, Tampa Bay and Tennessee are mathematically guaranteed to end up #1 and #2 in the 2015 draft.  So, Joe, Rob, and Jim each score 15 points for having  Tampa, and Geiss for having Tennessee.

The bowl pick'em predictions have started too.  Joe's a perfect 6 for 6 so far, and we have a long way to go.

Pro Pick'em

With one week left in the pro pick'em Rob has a one point lead over Gary.  Realistically, the only person else that has a shot to win that is probably Geiss, who currently sits three points back.

In the meantime, here are the point updates.

1. Joe 679
2. Gary  654
3. Rob  649
4. Adam 630
5. Colin  581
6. Geiss 578
7. Munez 573
8. Andrew 566
9. Jim 557
10. Shawn 538
11. Folden 524
12. John 280

Merry Christmas.  I'll be back next Monday with the last big point update of the year.

Football God points update 12-11

Hey, so the college predictions are in!  Some people fared pretty well and some did not.  Let's start by looking at the four team playoff

Ohio State
Florida St

The only person get all four teams correct was me.  Five other people got 3 of the 4 teams.  The other 6 people got 2 or 1.  Nobody got shut out.

Gary and Joe were the big winners in the College Predictions.  They each correctly predicted 3 of the 4 championship teams and 7 of the ten conference champions.

Also, all the individual awards are in, and only one award was correctly predicted.  Me, Jim, and Munez all picked Melvin Gordon to win the Doak Walker award.  That was it.  The winners of the other awards are.

Coach of the Year, AP: Gary Patterson
Chuck Bednarik Award: Scooby Wright III
Fred Biletnikoff Award: Amari Cooper
Jim Thorpe Award: Gerod Hollimon
Butkis Award Winner: Erik Kendricks

The Heisman is going to be awarded on Saturday and 8 of the 12 people have him.  So, I assume that's going to change the points here soon.

The point breakdown went as follows.

Joe 215
Gary 215
Andrew 195
Munez 190
Adam 180
Rob 175
Jim 155
Folden 150
Colin 150
Shawn 130
Geiss 125
John 105

There are still a few people who still have the ability to get the winner and loser of the NCAA playoff.

Rob has Oregon over Alabama, Folden, Joe, Andrew, and Gary have Florida State over Alabama.


So, officially Folden has officially won the College Pick'em and earned the 40 bonus points. In the Pro Pick'em Rob and Munez are now tied for first place, while Gary, Andrew, and Shawn remain within 5 points, Jim and Dan are 6 points behind.

Totals on the College Pick'em for the year are

1. Folden 176
2. Andrew 129
3. Jim 127
4. Shawn 125
5. Gary 125
6. Joe 125
7. Colin 123
8. Dan 122
9. Adam 120
10. Munez 119
11. Rob 109
12. John 32

Pro Pick'em

1. Rob 108
2. Munez 108
3. Gary 104
4. Andrew 103
5. Shawn 103
6. Jim 102
7. Dan 102
8. Joe 99
9. Folden 97
10. Colin 95
11. Adam 86
12. John 39


In Week 15 Folden and Jim pulled out the 10 point bonus.  The rest of the way we will be doing 5 point bonus's.

Total bonus's this year.

Dan 30 pts, Joe 30 pts, Munez 30 pts, Rob 20 pts, Shawn 20 pts, Jim 20 pts, Gary 15 pts, Andrew 10 pts, Folden 10 pts.


In our two quarterfinals games last week, I beat Geiss in a barn burner where both of us put up at least 130 points.

Also, Gary beat Joe.  Gary's team put up a respectable number, while Joe's team...well...it's a team...82 points for Joe's team.  Gary and I each gained 20 fantasy points.

So now in the semi finals, it's Rob vs Me, and Gary vs Colin with a trip to the finals on the line.

Final Scores.

Check your scores.  As always, double check that you I didn't fuck up on the individual awards for your team.

Predictions + College pick'em + Pro pick'em + Fantasy Football + Bonus = Total

Joe 215+125+100+99+30=569
Gary 215+125+100+104+15=559
Andrew 195+129+50+103+10=487
Rob 175+109+130+108+20=542
Munez 190+119+60+108+30=507
Adam 180+120+110+86=496
Folden 150+176+20+97+10=453
Colin 150+123+120+95=488
Jim 155+127+50+102+20=454
Shawn 130+125+70+103+20=448
Geiss 125+122+90+102+30=469
John 105+32+20+39=196


1. Joe 569 (+1)
2. Gary 559 (+3)
3. Rob 542 (-2)
4. Munez 507 (+3)
5. Adam 496 (+3)
6. Colin 488 (-2)
7. Andrew 487 (+2)
8. Geiss 469 (-5)
9. Jim 454 (+1)
10. Folden 453 (+1)
11. Shawn 448 (-5)
12. John 196

So obviously a LOT of change this week.  Geiss and Shawn had the biggest drop off in rank, each dropping 5 spots.  Me, Munez, and Gary each jumped 3 spots with the biggest leap.

Truthfully though the difference between 4th and 11th is only 59 points.  Joe, Gary, and Rob have a little cushion over the pack, but as more predictions come in that can change.

Until next time, laters on the manjay!

Football God Point Update. The last before shit hits the fan

Hey, happy December.  Hope everyone had a nice thanksgiving.  This update may take some time so we're going to get into it.

Fantasy Football:

The playoffs are set.  The six teams in the playoffs are

1. Rob (bye)
2. Colin (bye)

3. Joe VS
6. Gary

4. Adam VS
5. Geiss

The way the fantasy points go, everyone gets a 10 point bonus for making the playoffs.  Also, Rob and Colin receive a 20 point bonus for getting the first round bye.

The winners of this weekends games will receive 20 points.  The winners of the semi-finals get the same and the champion gets 40 points

Total Fantasy Points so far.

Rob 130 pts
Colin 120 pts
Joe 100 pts
Adam 90 pts
Geiss 90 pts
Gary 80 pts
Shawn 70 pts
Munez 60 pts
Jim 50 pts
Andrew 50 pts
Folden 20 pts
John 20 pts

A special shout out to Shawn's team.  Sucks to have the 2nd most points in the league and miss out on the playoffs.

College Pick'em

As far as this pick'em goes, it's pretty much a forgone conclusion that Folden is going to be taking the 40 point bonus.  He has a 6 point lead over Andrew and we are only picking 8 games this weekend.  It would take something crazy for Andrew to catch him.

College pick 'em points.

Folden 130
Andrew 124
Joe 123
Gary 122
Jim 122
Shawn 121
Colin 119
Geiss 118
Munez 115
Adam 115
Rob 106
John 32.

Good season on the pick'ems John.  Proud of you.

Pro Pick'em

The Pro Pick'em is much much tighter. There are four weeks remaining and Munez is holding onto a razor thin one point lead over Rob and a two point lead over Shawn.  Geiss is only 4 back, Andrew and Gary 5 back.

Totals as of beginning of Week 14

Munez 99
Rob 98
Shawn 97
Geiss 95
Andrew 94
Gary 94
Joe 91
Jim 91
Folden 87
Colin 87
Adam 82
John 39

Week 13 bonus belongs to Joe who had a massive 25 combined point week.

Shawn 20 pts
Gary 15 pts
Andrew 10 pts
Jim 10 pts
Adam 0

Pre Season Predictions

1st prediction of the year in.  Georgia Southern won the Sun Belt in their first year in Division 1A.  For this, they don't get to play in a bowl game!  For no reason.  Other than a dumb NCAA rule.  Throw it on the pile of other shit the NCAA does that makes no sense.

Obviously nobody got this prediction correct.

So, one last week of normal point updates.  Next week all the Conference champions will be factored in so expect some big swings.

Fantasy points + College Pick'em + Pro Pick'em + bonus

Rob 130+106+98+20=354
Colin 120+119+87=326
Joe 100+123+91+30=344
Adam 90+115+82=287
Geiss 90+118+95+30=333
Gary 80+122+94+15=311
Shawn 70+121+97+20=308
Munez 60+115+99+30=304
Andrew 50+124+94+10=278
Jim 50+122+91+10=273
Folden 20+130+87=237
John 20+32+39=91


1. Rob 354
2. Joe 344 (-1)
3. Geiss 333
4. Colin 326 (+3)
5. Gary 311 (+1)
6. Shawn 308 (-2)
7. Munez 304 (-2)
8. Adam 287
9. Andrew 278 (+1)
10. Jim 273 (-1)
11. Folden 237
12. John 91

The plus and minus indicate a rising or falling in the rankings.  Joe fell out of his first place tie, which is now held by Rob . Colin had the biggest jump, three, while Shawn and Munez both dropped two spots.

One more fun fact.  John has had the same exact point total since the 10/27 update.  Sadly, once the predictions are in he will have triple digits.

Until next week, double check your point totals, and hide your no reason boners.
