Point Update 12/29

Here's a quick point update for everyone before the new year.

Congrats to Jim.  He whooped that ass to win the fantasy championship, and 40 all important points.

In Predictions, Me, Shawn, and Geiss had the Bengals winning their division, which gives us 15 points each.

Colin and Folden each got 5 bonus points for the pro pick'em this week.

Aside from that.  Here are the standings in the College bowl pick'em as of yesterday.

Joe 26
Eplin 24
Shawn 24
Adam 24
Folden 24
Rob 20
Colin 20
Civ 20
Jim 20
Gary 18

In interesting news, it's not a 1 in 3,000 chance that Indi wins their division, which means that a lot of people's Super Bowl pick will be fucked right out.

Here are the points as of 12-28

The biggest number is the total score as of right now.  The number on the far right is the pro pick'em score this week.  The number to the left of that is the bowl pick'em this week.

Jim has 40 points for the fantasy win.
Adam, Geiss, Shawn have 15 points for the Bengals division Championship.

1. Adam 524+15+24+8=571
2. Colin 520+20+15=555
3. Jim 510+40+20+9=579
4. Joe 476+26+5=507
5. Folden 469+22+15=506
6. Civ 452+20+8=480
7. Eplin 444+24+9=477
8. Rob 423+20+8=451
9. Shawn 411+15+24+8=458
10. Munez 392+18+7=417
11. Geiss 351+15+18+8=392
12. Gary 349+18=367

Here are your standings

1. Jim 579
2. Adam 571
3. Colin 555
4. Joe 507
5. Folden 506
6. Civ 480
7. Eplin 477
8. Shawn 458
9. Rob 451
10. Munez 417
11. Geiss 392
12. Gary 367

Nice jump for Jim.  We will have more changes next week when the division winners are in, wildcard winners, and rushing title winner.

Point Update Yo

Hey, it's Christmas season and busy as shit, so I'm mainly doing this update so I don't get confused next week.  Here's what's up.

Jim & Colin both earned 20 points for winning their Semi final fantasy game and fight it out over 40 points next week in the Championship game.  Good luck fellas.

Joe earned 20 points from Dabo Sweeney winning the AP Coach of the year award this weekend.

Additionally, everyone but Civ and myself got 15 points for picking New England winning their division.  So good job!

In the pro pick'em Colin and Folden both railed off 14 out of 16 possible games for a 5 point bonus.  So here's every one's score for the week.

Colin 54
Joe 45
Jim 45
Folden 34
Gary 28
Eplin 27
Shawn 27
Munez 27
Rob 26
Geiss 25
Adam 9
Civ 0

In other developments this week, Arizona won the NFC West, which had some implications on Football God.  Although we all had Seattle winning the division, three people had Arizona winning the wildcard berth, so less points up there.

We could see Green Bay, Denver, Washington, Cincinnati, and Houston clinch this week.  So a lot of points could be coming in.

Add this onto the total scores from last week, and obviously my lead is going to disappear.

Adam 515+9= 524
Colin 466+54=520
Jim 464+45=510
Civ 452 + 0=452
Folden 435+34=469
Joe 431+45=476
Eplin 417+27=444
Rob 397+26=423
Shawn 384+27=411
Munez 365+27=392
Geiss 323+28=351
Gary 321+28=349

So, that makes the standings like this.

1. Adam 524
2. Colin 520
3. Jim 510
4. Joe 476
5. Folden 469
6. Civ 452
7. Eplin 444
8. Rob 423
9. Shawn 411
10. Munez 392
11. Geiss 351
12. Gary 349

Clearly, whoever wins the fantasy championship game this week is going to jump into first place overall.

The last thing with the standings is the new College bowl pick'em number.  Remember, all bowl games are worth 2 points, except the new years 6, which are worth 5 each.  And the National championship is worth 10 points.

As of right now, everyone either has five, four, or three out of 6.  So there's no real reason to add these into the mix quite yet.  In any case.  Those are your standings as of now.

Point Updates are easier now.

Civ and Folden each earned 20 points from last week with their fantasy wins.

Joe and I were both hit by the injury bug.  3 of my 9 starters went out with injury in the first half, while Joe's starting QB got hurt in the first drive of the game.  We stood no chance.

This leaves us to the battle of best men.

Civ was the best man in Colin's wedding, and they play each other in this semi final.

Jim was the best man in Folden's wedding, and they play each other in the other semi final.

Fucking crazy.

The 5 point bonus for pro pick'em was earned by Eplin, Civ, Shawn, and Munez with 11 points each.

So here are the totals points.  The number on the left was your number last week. + the number on the right, which is your points from this week.  Easy enough

Adam 506+9= 515
Colin 455+10 = 466
Jim 454+10= 464
Joe 423+8= 431
Civ 416+36= 452
Folden 407+28= 435
Eplin 401+16=417
Rob 386+10=396
Voyten 368+16=384
Munez 349+16=365
Geiss 314+9=323
Gary 314+7=321

1. Adam 515
2. Colin 466
3. Jim 464
4. Civ 452
5. Folden 435
6. Joe 431
7. Eplin 417
8. Rob 396
9. Voyten 384
10. Munez 365
11. Geiss 323
12. Gary 321

Biggest Point Update of the year so far: 12/8/2015

The dust has temporarily settled, and there's a shake up in the standings.  How much of one, I'm unsure of, but let's journey through this together, and see where we all stand.


The Survivor Pool has ended.  One by one people fell, starting with Jim in week 2, and going until week 13.  But, as my pick of the Steelers prevailed, Shawn's Washington pick did not.  That's a big 50 point bonus to me.


Colin stepped on everyone's throat finishing the college pick'em with a 10 point lead over 2nd place.

Civ had 17 correct predictions this weekend, giving him his 4th 10 point bonus of the season.

Folden had 11 correct pro games, keeping his lead going strong.  Rob kept pace, staying 4 games back.  Joe dropped one to 5 back.  Geiss and Jim sit at 6 back.


Let's go through the predictions and who got what right.

4 teams in the College Football Playoff

Alabama  (Adam Jim, Joe, Munez, Rob, Geiss, Civ)
Clemson (Jim)
Michigan St (Voyten, Eplin)

ACC Champion Clemson (Adam, Jim, Folden, Joe)

AAC Champion Houston (Voyten, Eplin)

Big 10 Champion Michigan St (noone)

SEC Champion Alabama (Adam, Jim, Joe, Munez, Rob, Geiss, Civ)

Pac 12 Champion Stanford (Civ)

Big 12 Champion Oklahoma (noone)

MAC Champion (Eplin, Joe)

Sun Belt Champion Arkansas St (Voyten, Munez, Colin, Rob, Civ)

Mountain West Champion San Diego St (Adam)

Conference USA Champion Western Kentucky (Adam, Jim, Voyten, Folden, Joe, Colin, Rob, Eplin, Gary)

So this is how the points stand out for that.

Jim 100
Joe 100
Adam 100
Voyten 80
Rob 80
Civ 80
Eplin 80
Munez 60
Colin 40
Folden 40
Geiss 40
Gary 20

As far as the individual awards go, nobody has a finalist for the Doak Walker award or the Chuck Bendarik award, or the Heisman.

Rob, Gary, and Jim each have a finalist for the Biletnikoff award, and Joe still has a good shot for the AP coach of the year award winner. We'll have to wait for that though.

NFL Predictions

The cherry has also been popped on the NFL Predictions.  The Panthers clinched their division this weekend, giving Joe, Munez, Eplin, and Gary 15 points.


The season is over, and it didn't happen without some drama.

Jim earned the first round bye, beating Civ this weekend, solely because of Antonio Brown's punt return for a td.  This caused Civ to lose and Folden to lose the first round bye.  Just another reason for more people to hate Jacoby Jones.

Joe beat Rob by about 2 points, sweating it out Monday night, while getting outscored by Eplin by 24 points.  This means Eplin only missed the playoffs by about 9 points in the tie break.  Hell of a come back by Eplin, he ended up just short.

This means Joe, who started 0-4 made the playoffs.  Me and Civ who both started 0-3 ended up in the playoffs as well.

Colin, despite being 9TH IN THE LEAGUE in points.  Finished the season on an 8 game winning streak and in first place.

Rob, despite being 5th in points, finished with an average of 116 points a game scored against, will miss out on the playoffs.

Here's how the playoff bracket looks

1. Colin

4. Adam
5. Civ

3. Folden
6. Joe

2. Jim

Jim and Colin each earn 20 points on top of their score for the first round bye. The winners of the two quarterfinal matchups will also get 20 points.

So, let's see where we all end up now.

Fantasy Football points + College pick'em + Pro Pick'em + Predictions + (Bonus)

NOTE:  The Bonus will include not only the weekly pick'em bonus, but Colin's 40 point bonus for the college pick'em and my 50 point bonus for the survivor pool.  The first round bye bonus will be figured into fantasy score.

The college and pro predictions are all included in one.

Colin 120+138+107+40+ (50)=455

Jim 110+118+116+100+(10)=454

Folden 90+125+122+40+(30)=407

Adam 80+127+114+100+(85)=506

Civ 70+124+102+80+(40)=416

Joe 70+121+117+115=423

Eplin 70+128+108+80+(15)=401

Rob 50+128+118+80+(10)=386

Munez 50+124+105+60+(10)=349

Gary 40+120+99+35+(20)=314

Voyten 40+124+114+80+(10)=368

Geiss 30+123+116+40+(5)=314

1. Adam 506
2. Colin 455
3. Jim 454
4. Joe 423
5. Civ 416
6. Folden 407
7. Eplin 401
8. Rob 386
9. Voyten 368
10. Munez 349
t11 Geiss 314
t11 Gary 314

Bowl Pick'em starts on the 19th, so make sure you get signed up.  I'll be back next week with an update on Prediction occurences, next point update will be on the 22nd of December.

Sunday, December 6, 2015

The College Predictions are in.  If you look at the screenshot above, green means it's correct, Red means it's wrong.

Double check your scores and predictions.  Here's how the points shook out.

Adam 100

Joe 100
Shawn 80
Rob 80
Civ 80
Eplin 80

Update 12-1-15

This is the last week before the Conference champions are named.  Scores are going to get whacky, and they're starting to this week.  Let's start and go through everything.


And we're down to 2.  Joe made the mistake of trusting the Jacksonville Jaguars and has hit the bricks.

It's down to Shawn and I, after we both watched as Arizona squeeked by San Francisco on Sunday.

40 points are on the line for the victor.


The first Prediction of the year is in!  Unfortunately, none of us got it correct, as Oklahoma won the Big 12 championship.

As far as it goes, there are 8 conference championships this weekend.  Many of which people are still in line to win.


Put a fork in college pick'em people, because it's done.  Colin has a 7 point lead with only 6 games up for grabs this week.  Congrats Colin,  you win the 40 point bonus.

Pro Pick'em was more of the same this week.

Folden got 10 predictions correct, tying him with Joe, Rob, and myself.  Meaning that noone gained any ground.

His lead is at 4 over Joe and Rob, 5 over me, and 6 over Geiss and Jim.

With 22 correct between both pick'ems Rob wont the 10 point bonus. This leaves Joe as the only person to not get a pick'em bonus this year.

This is the last week for 10 point pick'em bonus before we revert back to the 5 point bonus after the college pick'em is finished.

Colin 50
Adam 35
Civ 30
Folden 30
Gary 20
Eplin 15
Voyten 10
Jim 10
Munez 10
Rob 10
Dan 5

That is the bonus points that everyone has acquired this year.  Colin's includes his pick'em overall win bonus.


One more week of Fantasy Football.  Let's go through it.

In for sure

1. Folden 9-3
2. Colin 9-3
3. Jim 8-4
4. Adam 7-5
5. Civ 7-5

Civ and I haven't technically clinched a spot yet, but it's near impossible for either of us to be passed based on the tie break. (barring a 50 point output by Civ)

This is essentially jockying for position.  If Jim beats Civ this weekend, then Folden and Colin's game essentially becomes a play in ame for the first round bye.  Whichever one of them loses, won't pass Jim in points for the tie break (barring, again,  a 50 point or under game by Jim)

On the verge

6. Joe 6-6
7. Eplin 6-6
8. Rob 5-7

This is where things get interesting.  Here's how each person here gets into the playoffs. the easiest one is Rob.  If he beats Joe and Eplin loses, he's in.  It's that simple.

Eplin would need to win and hope that Joe either loses, or that if Joe wins, he outscores him by 30 points.

Joe would need to win and not get outscored by Eplin by 30 points.  Those are your playoff scenarios.

Out of it

Munez 5-7
Shawn 4-8
Gary 3-9
Geiss 3-9

Munez fell out of it last week, and Geiss picked up his 3rd win.

Points:  Fantasy wins + college pick'em + pro pick'em + bonus = total score

1. Folden 90+122+111+(30)=353
2. Colin 90+133+98+(50)=371
3. Jim 80+118+105+(10)=313
4. Adam 70+123+106+(35)=334
5. Civ 70+119+90+(30)=309
6. Joe 60+118+107=285
7. Eplin 60+126+100+(15)=301
8. Rob 50+126+107+(10)=293
9. Munez 50+120+95+(10)=275
10. Shawn 40+122+103+(10)=275
11. Gary 30+119+88+(20)=257
12. Geiss 30+119+105+(5)=259

1. Colin 371
2. Folden 353
3. Adam 334
4. Jim 313
5. Civ 309
6. Eplin 301
7. Rob 293
8. Joe 285
t9 Munez 275
t9 Shawn 275
11. Geiss 259
12. Gary 257

So a little shake up from last time.  Let's see where we stand after this weekend.

Quck Thanksgiving Roundup

I'm not going to do a point update this week, but I wanted to give a quick round up of what went down over the weekend.

Survivor Pool

The Survivor Pool took it's 9th victim of the year.  Rob had Philadelphia who got slaughtered by Tampa Bay.  I'll let Rob play himself out here, "Tampa Bay knocked out both of my teams this year.  Most hated team forever now."  Well put.

That leaves, Joe, Shawn, and I left with 40 points on the line.  Dallas got the job done for me, Jacksonville for Shawn, and Seattle for Joe.


Colin widened his lead in the college pick'em.  He's now up 5 over Eplin and 6 Rob and I.  A solid week this week will probably seal this for Colin.

Folden opened up to a 3 point lead after he had a good week and Jim had a bad one.  Jim, Rob, Joe, Me, Shawn, and Geiss are all within 6 points of Folden.

With 23 correct picks this weekend, Eplin has earned the 10 point bonus.  This plus Eplin's fantasy win make this his best week in a couple of months.

Fantasy Football

Shawn and Gary were both eliminated from playoff contention over the weekend, each falling in their respective games.

Jim and Colin each clinched a playoff spot over the weekend with victories.  My call of Jim getting upset by Geiss this weekend wasn't a very good one.  Jim beat Geiss by 67 points.

So, with two weeks left where does that leave us for the playoffs?

In for sure
1.  Jim (8-3)
2. Folden (8-3)
3. Colin (8-3)
4. Civ (7-4)

Civ hasn't techically clinched a playoff spot according to Yahoo, but one look at the schedule shows you he's in.  At 1180 points, two 5-6 teams (of which there are 4) would have to win out and pass him in points.  The only two that could realistically do that at this point are Rob and Joe, who play each other in the last week of the season.  So Civ's in.

The rest of the season is going to be about finding out which of these two teams gets the first round bye.  Folden and Civ play one another this week, next week Folden plays Colin and Civ plays Jim.  Exciting finishes at the top.

On the verge
5. Adam (6-5)
At 6-5 I would need to win one more game to get into the playoffs.  This being for the same reason as I had with Civ.  I play 1st place Jim, and close out with Shawn.

On the fringe
6. Rob (5-6)
7. Joe (5-6)
8. Eplin (5-6)
9.  Munez (5-6)

All with the same record, yet all in much different positions.  It's pretty simple for Rob and Joe.  Win this week and then the winner of their game is definitely in.

For Eplin and Munez it's the same.  They play each other in Week 13, so the surest way to getting in the playoffs is to win out.

Rob and Eplin play each other in Week 12, so we can look at this as another elimination game for Eplin.  Munez plays Colin and is the same for him.

Because of his points scored it's feasible for Rob to lose this week and still get in.  He would just need to finish in a tie for 6th place.

I guess there are still many possibilities.

Out of playoff contention

10.  Shawn
11. Gary
12. Geiss

Good season boys.  Sometimes it just isn't your year.

I'll be back next week with a point update before the College Football conference champions are announced.  Happy Thanksgiving.

Friday, November 20, 2015

Weekend Preview:

Let's take a look at the fantasy games this weekend.

Adam 5-5 vs Civ 7-3
Civ has a 7 game winning streak, and my team can't string together 2 wins in a row to save it's life.  Here comes Civ clinching a playoff spot.

Upset Alert: Jim 7-3 vs Geiss 2-8
Jim's starting QB is out and Antonio Brown is on Bye.  Looks like a good time for Geiss to get that 3rd win.

Gary 3-7 vs Eplin 4-6
Gary and Eplin both need to win to have any chance for playoffs.  Gary is 3-7 despite having the 6th most points in the league.  Poor bastard.

Rob 5-5 vs Colin 7-3
Rob loves to mention how he has the most points against him by far this year.  On top of that, as shitty as Colin's team was early in the year, it's actually scored quite a few points the past 4 weeks.
Colin for the win.

Munez 4-6 vs Folden 8-2
Munez is freefalling, Folden just keeps fucking winning.  Munez needs a win to stay in the playoff hunt.

Game of the Week:  Joe 4-6 vs Shawn 4-6
This is as close to an elimination game as we're going to have this week.  The winner clings on for another week, while the loser is out of the playoffs.

Survivor Pool:
Shawn already moved on with the ballsy Jacksonville Jaguars pick.  That leaves Joe, Rob, and I to fight it out on Sunday.  Someone is going down this week.  Blood in the water and the sharks are circling.


This is actually a huge week for the predictions.  The way that a lot of conferences positioned their schedules we have a lot of games that will decide each side of the conferences the next two weeks.

After Saturday we will have a very clear version of what's going to happen.

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Football God Update: 11/18/2015

We are closing in on the conference champions and the first big point shake up of the season.

Looking at the chart, there isn't a clear cut leader heading down the stretch.  Most people have a couple of playoff teams that aren't going to make it.  Most people have a couple of teams winning their conference that isn't going to happen.

So, there is no real reason to project much for now.  Instead we'll just do a normal update.


It's been three weeks since the last survivor pool update, and it's only led to one casualty.  Geiss picked the Saints in Week 9, leading to his elimination.  Week 10 had Joe, Rob, Shawn, and I all picking Carolina.

New Orleans was universally the worst pick of the season for everyone.  They were responsible for 7 strikes this year, the Cardinals and Ravens the next closest with 3 strikes a piece.

Basically, the Survivor Pool could end any week now.  Exciting finish.


The college pick'em has fluctuated again.  A couple of weeks ago Civ had a commanding lead.  After a couple rough'ens, Colin now sits on top with 108 points.  Rob and I are behind at 105, Civ at 104.  Folden, Eplin, and Shawn are at 102 and 101.

With 3 weeks to go, it'll be difficult for anyone else to catch up, unless they have a monster week this week.


The Pro Pick'em is similar.  Folden had a big lead, and squandered it with a very bad week 10 performance.  Because of that he's opened the door for people to get back into it, he now shares the lead with Jim at 92 points.

Rob and Joe are 3 points back at 89.  Shawn and I are at 87.  Geiss is at 86.  After that there is a drop off.

Pick'em Bonus

Week 1: Adam, Dan, Eplin (5 point)
Week 2: Adam
Week 3: Colin, Gary, Munez
Week 4: Folden
Week 5: Jim, Gary, Civ
Week 6: Civ
Week 7: Civ, Voyten
Week 8: Adam
Week 9: Folden
Week 10: Folden
Week 11: Adam

Adam 35
Civ 30
Folden 30
Gary 20
Voyten 10
Jim 10
Munez 10
Colin 10
Dan 5
Eplin 5

Those are the pick'em bonuses so far this year, along with how many points each person has earned in them.

Since our last update, Folden won the bous 2 weeks in a row, while I won this most recent week.  Folden, Civ, and I are dominating the bonuses this year, with Gary doing pretty well too.


With 3 weeks to go in the regular season, we finally have our first playoff spot clinched.  At 8-2 Folden has punched his ticket.

Right behind him at 7-3 is Civ, Jim, and Colin.  Each needing one more win to clinch their spot as well.  Jim and Folden are in position for the 1st round byes at this time.

Civ is on a 7 game winning streak since starting the season 0-3, pretty impressive.  Colin is 7-3 despite being 8th in points scored, and also being a huge douchebag.

Rob and I are both at 5-5 and on the ledge of the playoffs.

Behind us at 4-6 are Joe, Eplin, Munez, and Shawn.

At this point, Geiss is officially eliminated from playoff contention, and Gary is very very close.  For Gary to get into the playoffs he would have to win out and hope that he wins a point tie breaker against any other 6-7 teams that may be tied for 6th.  One more loss and he's certainly done.  And, even if he wins out he may be out too.

For Rob and I at 5-5 we sort of have a 2 game lead over the 4-6 teams.  We have more than 100 points more than any of them, so we would win a tie breaker against any of them.  Joe, Eplin, Munez, and Shawn need to win and hope that we lose to have a shot going down the stretch.

The playoff picture looks like this right now

1 Folden

4 Colin
5 Adam

3 Civ
6 Rob

2 Jim

Point totals.

Fantasy wins 10 pts + college pick'em score + pro pick'em score + (bonus)

Folden 80+102+92+(30)= 304
Jim 70+94+92+(10)=266
Civ 70+104+78+(30)=282
Colin 70+108+80+(10)=268
Adam 50+105+87+(35)=277
Rob 50+105+89=244
Shawn 40+101+87+(10)=238
Joe 40+98+89=227
Munez 40+99+80+(10)=229
Eplin 40+102+82+(5)=229
Gary 30+98+74+(20)=222
Geiss 20+97+86+(5)=208

1. Folden 304
2. Civ 282
3. Adam 277
4. Colin 268
5. Jim 266
6. Rob 244
7. Shawn 238
8. Munez 229
8. Eplin 229
10. Joe 227
11. Gary 222
12. Geiss 208

Obviously these stats are very driven by fantasy point totals.  There has been less separation in the pick'ems than usual.  Bonus points and fantasy points are the main decider so far.

The next update will be the week of Conference championships.  So we can have one more update before things go fucking insane.

Football God Update: 10/27/15

All Hallow's Eve is upon us.  So here's your super scary Football God update.  


Four weeks ago Civ was in 11th in the college and pro pick'em, and 0-3 in the fantasy league.  He seemed dead in the water for Football God.  

Four weeks later and he's 4-3 in fantasy and 1st in the college pick'em.  He's still balls in the pro pick'em, but it's an impressive turnaround.  What's even more impressive is that he earned at least a share of the 10 point bonus every week for 3 of those 4 weeks as well. 


Our other newbie, Eplin, started hte fantasy season 3-1.  Since then he's gone 0-3.  He's in 10th in the pro pick'em, and hasn't had a pick'em bonus since week 1.  Eplin is in 3rd in the college pick'em, so there is reason not be optimistic there.


The last two weeks of the Survivor Pool have had opposite results.  At the beginning of Week 6 there were 7 people remaining in the pool.  We took 6 different games between the 7 of us, nearly guaranteeing that some people would lose. Instead, everyone moved onto the following week.

Week 7 wasn't as fortunate to everyone.  Munez chose the Chargers over the Raiders, which back fired.  And, Folden made the very ballsy pick of not picking anyone at all.  This move is unprecedented...and stupid.  Apparently, Folden forgot to make his pick, while moving into his new house.  Congrats on the house, homey.  Diapers on your pick. 

So, heading into week 8, we still have 5 people remaining (Rob, Shawn, Adam, Geiss, and Joe).  


There are 6 weeks left of the college pick'em season and here is where we stand.

Civ has 83 and a 2 point lead over Colin.  Eplin and I are both 5 points back.  Rob, Munez , and Jim are all 7 points back.  Everyone else is 8 to 10 points back. 

So, for now.  Anyone can still win this thing, however those that are further back need to make a move now or lose out on the big 40 point winning bonus.  Simple as that.

In the Pro Pick'em there is still more time to make some moves.

Rob has the lead there with 70 points with Shawn only one point behind at 69.  Folden and Jim are 2 points back at 68.  The rest of us are between 66 and 58 with Gary bringing up the rear. 

For the Bonus, I won the 10 points this week with a combined 22 points, 1 point in front of Folden and Rob.

Here are the pick'em bonus results so far by week this year. 

Week 1: Adam, Dan, Eplin
Week 2: Adam
Week 3: Colin, Gary, Munez
Week 4: Folden
Week 5: Jim, Gary, Civ
Week 6: Civ
Week 7: Civ, Voyten
Week 8: Adam


This weekend Geiss got his 2nd win, and Folden his 2nd loss.  Meaning that the records from 1st to 12th are between 5-2 and 2-5.  

Rob beat Gary this week to move to 4-3, Gary fell to 3-4
Colin (4-3) pounded me (3-4)
Jim (5-2) beat Folden (5-2)
Voyten (4-3) beat Munez (3-4)
Geiss (2-5) beat Eplin (3-4)
Civ (4-3) beat Joe (2-5)


Fantasy wins (10 points each) + pro pick'em + college pick'em + bonus = total

Jim 50+68+76+(10)=204
Folden 50+68+73+(10)=201
Rob 40+70+76=186
Civ 40+59+83+(30)=212
Colin 40+63+81+(10)=194
Voyten 40+69+75+(10)=194
Adam 30+65+78+(25)=198
Gary 30+58+75+(20)=183
Eplin 30+60+78+(5)=173
Munez 30+61+76+(10)=177
Geiss 20+64+74+(5)=163
Joe 20+66+73=159


1. Civ 212
2. Jim 204 
3. Folden 201
4. Adam 198
t5. Colin 194
t5. Shawn 194
7. Rob 186
8. Gary 183
9. Munez 177
10. Eplin 173
11. Geiss 163
12. Joe 159

So, there we are.  In 3 weeks Civ has gone from 11th to 1st.

Eplin and Munez both dropped 4 spots, but Gary had the furthest drop going from 3rd to 8th.

I jumped 4 spots from 8th to 4th.  Other than that most people stayed close to where they were before.

Joe is holding down that McLane spot at dead last place.  However, he's a much more competetive 12th place then his brother ever was.  Our two time champion needs to get moving if he's going to have a shot to 3 peat.  

That's it for this week.  Happy Halloween fags.

Weekend Recap

No point update this week, but I will give you guys a quick recap of the Football God happenings.

Survivor Pool - The castration of Eplin and the worst pick of the year

The survivor pool has become like a scary movie, and every week is a different murder scene.  This week Eplin got his balls cut off, and then left alone to bleed out.  Somehow Jay Cutler took the lowly Bears to their 2nd straight win.

Not a bad pick by Eplin, it's never a bad idea to bet against Cutler.  However, this week, YA BURNT.

Other than that, everyone else took a nice heaping serving of Green Bay, New England, and Atlanta.  All three of them stayed undefeated, keeping the other six 1-strike players in contention.

Voyten, the last person to have 0 strikes, did a classic Clint Hurdle and overthought things until he had the HOUSTON TEXANS picked.  That's the equivalent of starting Sean Rodriguez in the wildcard game.  That has to be the worst pick of the year.

Anyway, we're onto week 6 and left in the running are Folden, Voyten, Geiss, Munez, Adam, Joe, and Rob.  Not as many obvious games this week.  I have a feeling the herd is going to be gutted this weekend.

Pick 'em  The rise of Jim and Civ.  The fall of Gary

For the 2nd straight week, Civ has gathered the 10 points in the pick'em bonus (this time without a tie).  Even more impressive than that, in two weeks Civ has gone from 11th place in the college pick'em to 4th.  What's even more impressive than that is that right now Jim is leading BOTH the college pick'em and pro pick'em.  I'm going to go on record in this update, and say that picking the Pro Pick'me straight up is a fucking joke, as Jim having a 6 point lead on Gary becomes nearly impossible for Gary to come back from, even though we're only like 30% of the way through the season.

Speaking of Gary, two weeks ago Gary had a monster lead in the college pick'em, and one average week + one dreadful week now has Gary in 3rd.  Fortunes can change much quicker in the college pick'em.

Fantasy Football

Folden beat Geiss.  Folden stays undefeated and has an early 3 game lead over the playoffs.
Civ wins 2nd in a row over Eplin.
Gary pummeled Voyten
I beat up on Munez
Jim kicked the shit out of Rob
Joe got a much needed win over Colin.

So where does that put us?

Current Playoff Picture

#1 Folden (bye)
#2 Jim (bye)

#3 Gary vs #6 Adam
#4 Eplin vs #5 Voyten

That's the way the playoffs would go if they started today.  To show how quickly things have changed, two weeks ago I was 0-3 and in 10th place.

Right now everyone from 6th place to 12th place is either 2-3 or 1-4.  So realistically, Geiss could jump from 12th to 6th in a week or two.  That is if his team stops chugging cum and decides to score some points.

In a league this tight, tie breakers may turn out to be the big difference, and we all know that points are the tie breaker.  Right now Rob and I have the big lead in that department over the rest of the sub .500 gang.

That's all for this week.  I'll be back later in the week for a weekend preview.

Weekend Preview

Week 5 of the fantasy football season is on the horizon so let's do a little preview.

The first trade of the season went down this week with me sending Justin Forsett to Munez for Lagarette Blount and Greg Olson.

Let's see if the trading block fills up.  Onto the matchups.

Jim (3-1) vs Rob (2-2)

Rob comes back after a rough performance last week.  He has Todd Gurley and Foster finally both fully healthy.  Jim keeps chugging along, putting up consistent numbers each week.  I think Rob's going to be a force once Big Ben and Dez come back, however I think Jim wins this one, while Rob struggles through another tough week.

Adam (1-3) vs Munez (2-2)

In what may be the dumbest move of the season, I traded for a player on bye, and gave Munez a solid running back to play on me.  This may be the dumbest move I've ever made, and I'm sure it'll lead to me being 1-4.

Voyten (3-1) vs Gary (2-2)

Gary and Voyten both have solid teams.  They both are projected to have solid weeks.  Nothing more to say about this one.

Eplin (3-1) vs Civ (1-3)

Civ and Eplin are on opposite sides of the standings.  But, a solid game by Civ has given him some momentum.  Maybe it'll continue.

Upset Alert:

Joe (0-4) vs Colin (2-2)

Joe made a good point to me the other day.  His team has been outscored the most in our league more than 100 points.  That's a staggering number.  Colin has some health/bye issues, so I think this week is the week that ends the streak, and our champion tries to reclaim some former glory.

Game of the Week:

Folden (4-0) vs Geiss (1-3)

Geiss is in need of a win to stay competitive, but it comes against the only undefeated team left in the league. This is the game of the week because each team is set to score a lot of points.  This game could easily end up very close, with each team over 130 points.

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Football God Update: 10/6/2015. Civ decided to join us.

After basically not playing for the first 4 weeks of the season, Civ has joined the party.  Civ was able to not only win his first fantasy game of the season, but also won the week of college pick'em and earned the weekly bonus.  Holy shit.  Well done, Civ.  Thanks for joining.

SURVIVOR POOL:  Two more bite the dust.

However, we'll start this update in the one place where Civ did not go well.  This was our most varied week of selections by far, with San Diego, Denver, Cincinnati, Indi, Green Bay, and Arizona all being represented.  5 of the 6 teams selected won their game, with the exception of Arizona.

That gave Civ and Colin their 2nd strike of the season, dropping them from the Survivor Pool.  They join Gary and Jim on the trash heap.

Also, Geiss received his first strike of the season, meaning that Voyten is only person who hasn't earned a strike.

We are at a point where this could literally be over in one week if everything fell Shawn's way.

College Pick'em

Civ dominated the college pick'em this week, ending 3 points higher than anyone else.  This brought him back into the fold overall.  Gary is in the lead overall with 56 points, with Shawn all the way down at 43.

Pro Pick'em

Gary, Shawn, and Jim all lead the way in the Pro Pick'em, correctly picking 10 of 16 games.  With Civ only getting 7, this brought a tie between Civ, Jim, and Gary for the 10 point bonus, of which they will all receive.

The Pro pick'em is now a tie for Jim and Colin with 41 a piece.  Many people are close.


The league went a little screwy over the weekend.

Let's start by talking about Rob and I's game.  I beat Rob by 86 points.  His team put up 45 points for the week.



Did you read that.  


Rob's team put up 3 1/2 times more than that the week before.  The next lowest point total in a week this year is 65.  Twenty points less.

I could have benched all of my players after Thursday night, and still be rob by 3.  Unbelievable.  I believe I achieved my victory with Sheer Domination.  ;)

Also, Civ was win less and beat undefeated Shawn by 30.

Munez beat Geiss to go to 2-2.

Eplin beat Colin by 13 to go to 3-1.

Jim went to 3-1 by beating Gary.

and Folden stayed the leagues only unbeaten team by beating so far hopeless Joe, knocking him to 0-4.

Our two time defending champion in some early trouble whle trying to 3peat.

Right now our fantasy playoff picture would be as follows.

Folden 4-0 on bye
Jim 3-1 on bye

Shawn 3-1 vs 2-2 Gary
Eplin 3-1 vs 2-2 Rob.

Other than that, Munez and Colin are also at 2-2 but outside of the playoff race based off of points.

Next is myself, Civ, and Geiss at 1-3.

And finally, lowly, lowly Joe all alone at 0-4.


I figured it's October, it's not going to hurt to give an overall point update.  Here's how the points are tabulated.

Fantasy wins (10 points each)
plus College pick'em score (1 point per correct pic)
plus Pro pick'em score (1 point per correct pic)
+ (bonus points)

Later this will include predictions and survivor pool, but as of right now it's not relevant.

Folden 40+47+38+(10)=135
Jim 30+52+41+(10)=133
Voyten 30+43+39= 112
Eplin 30+49+35+(5)=119
Rob 20+48+39=107
Colin 20+52+41+(10)=123
Munez 20+53+37+(10)=120
Gary 20+56+35+(20)=131
Adam 10+49+36+(15)=110
Civ 10+48+31+(10)=99
Geiss 10+46+40+(5)=101
Joe 0+52+37=89


1 Folden 135
2 Jim 133
3 Gary 131
4 Colin 123
5 Munez 120
6 Eplin 119
7 Voyten 112
8 Adam 110
9 Rob 107
10 Geiss 101
11 Civ 99
12 Joe 89

Obviously it's early, but is it possible that John has left a curse on his brother.  One that demands a McLane be the worst team in our league?  I don't know.  In any case, as you all know, the winner of Football God will end up north of 800 points for the season, so we still have a lot of juice to suck out of this lemon.

Peace out, girls.

Big Dick Updates: 10/1/2016

Another small update for you filth balls this week.

Another One Bites The Dust:

Gary made the mistake that many people in the greater New York metro area have made time and time again, by trusting the Jets to do anything but let you down.  Gary's joined Jimbo on the trash heap of the Survivor Pool.

I don't know what you guys think, but this Survivor Pool shit is a lot of fun.

Geiss and Shawn still have the distinction of being the only two who still don't have a strike.  Everyone took either New England or Seattle, with the exception of Eplin who took Arizona.

Onto week 4.  2 eliminated, 2 with perfect records, 8 with 1 strike.


Folden grabbed the 10 point bonus for week 4, by picking 23 correct picks for the week.  Overall, Rob holds a 1 point lead over Colin in the Pro Pick'em with 33.

Gary has a 3 point lead over Munez in the college pick'em with 47.

Fantasy Football

Week 3 of Fantasy Football results.

Voyten moved on to 3-0 defeating Jim.

Rob  beat up on Geiss, putting out a huge point total.

Folden moved onto 3-0 nearly doubling up Eplin.

Colin beat up on Civ as well.

Munez got out of the cellar putting a beating on Joe.

And Gary beat me by 3 points, because the Jets Cunt of a coach activated Chris Ivory and then sat him on the sidelines ALL FUCKING GAME.

At this point Shawn and Folden are the only unbeaten teams left in the league.  While myself, Joe, and Civ are all in last place at 0-3.

At 2-1 are Rob, Eplin, Colin, and Jim.

At 1-2 are Munez and Geiss.

This weeks Games.

Adam 0-3 vs Rob 2-1
Civ 0-3 vs Shawn 3-0
Joe 0-3 vs Folden 3-0

All three of these games have similar story lines.  3 teams off to good starts against 3 teams trying to stay relevant.  Sort of like the Steelers v Ravens game.

Geiss 1-2 vs Munez 1-2

One will fall to 1-3, one will get to .500

Blowout of the Week Predicton:  Eplin over Colin.

Colin has lots of questionable people in his lineup this week. I don't think Fitzgerald can keep the magic going 3 weeks in a row, and Karlos Williams is due to not score a TD at some point.

Eplin's team is healthy, hungry, and ready to rape.


Jim (2-1) v Gary (2-1)

Jim's team is getting beat up, but he still has Luck, Brown, and Hopkins.  Gary's starting a WR at RB, so how do you not put him in the Game of the Week.

Until next week, eat my shit, faggots.

Football God 9/22 Update

So, we're three weeks in and I figured it's time for the first real update of the year.  

The NFL was a bit topsy-turvey this week as nearly all of the most picked teams in the survivor pool took a nosedive.  

In Week 1, Jim was the only person lose his game, with Indi getting spanked by the bills.  

Week 2 was no different for the Colts, or Jim for that matter.  The Colts lost to the Jets, giving Civ his first strike of the year.  The Saints Lost to the Bucs giving Colin, Eplin, Me, Joe, and Rob our first strikes.  The Saints loss also knocked Jim out of the Survivor Pool already. 1 Man down 11 remain.  

Geiss and Shawn are the only two people who survived the first two weeks without a strike against them, putting them in early position to earn the 40 point bonus.  

The Pick'em Bonus in Week three went to Gary, Munez and Colin, each getting 20 correct combined picks.  Rob raped through the NFL pick'em but couldn't keep it up in his College Picks, finishing with 19 points.  

Overall in the Pick'em thus far, Rob leads the NFL pick'em by 2 points over a gaggle of people. 

In the College Pick'em Gary has a 1 point lead over Munez, 

Fantasy Football has started off with four 2-0 teams, four 1-1 teams, and four 0-2 teams.  

Jim has set the pace by beating ass in both of his first two games. Folden, Eplin, and Voyten also come in at 2-0

Rob, Gary, Geiss, and Colin are all at 1-1.  Rob's team was the big point scorer of the week, scoring nearly 40 points more than the second closest person.  

In the back at 0-2 are Myself, Civ, Joe, and Munez.  

I'm not going to give a point update for another two or three works.  We'll work on old BCS rules here.  

At this point the best thing you can do is stay the pace, and not end up with your entire team hurt like the Cowboys.  That Super Bowl pick is looking rough for you right now Munez.

Football God 9/16 Update

First week of the regular NFL season done, second week of the college football season done.  Let's get a short idea of where we stand.

Week 1 college pick'em bonus (5 points) was a tie between Eplin, Geiss, and myself.  Last week, Eplin texted me, upset that he didn't realize we were picking college against the spread.  Said he would have changed a few picks.  

Two things about this.  #1 Eplin's the only person I've ever seen who complained after winning a week.  #2  In week two, when he knew we were picking against the spread, he finished in dead last place.  Maybe you should go back to being unaware, David.  

Week 2 combined pick'em bonus was won by me, I scored a combined 24 points.  Jim was right behind with 23. 

Week 1 of Fantasy Football went as follows.

Folden put a SPANKING on Civ.  
Eplin beat Rob.
Jim beat Me.
Gary beat Joe
Voyten kicked the living shit out of Geiss
Colin beat Munez

In the Survivor Pool, everyone lasted through week 1 without getting a strike.  Exceepppppttt Jim.  Jim picked the Colts, who flew to Buffalo to get on their knees and give the Bills the most submissive rimjob I've ever seen. 

No point updates this week.  Would be a waste of time this early.

Football God VIII Season Preview & Introductions

Welcome back to our latest season of Football God.  This is our 8th installment, which I have been eagerly anticipating.  Before we get to our particpant introductions.  Let's go over the main story lines of the off season?

Survivor Pool

For the first time in a long time, we have added a new way to score points.  Just to remember the rules, you pick one team a week that you think is a "lock" to win their game.  Once you've picked that team you cannot pick them again the rest of the season.

There is also a two strike policy in this league, meaning that if you lose one game you can still play until you lose again.  I'm really excited to see how this plays out.

Remember, this is a winner take all pool for points.

Can Joe 3Peat?

Joe became the 3rd two-time champion in league history last year, but the first to do it in back to back years.  I have to admit, I'm actively routing for anyone other than Joe to win this year.

Who will finish last?

John has had a strangehold over last place in Football God, finishing in dead fucking last every year from 2011-2014.  Who will step up...or step down and win the John McLane honorary last place trophy this year?  Only time will tell.

Now, onto this seasons players.

Two Time Defending Champion: Joe McLane

Football God History:

2009: 5th
2010: 5th
2011: 2nd
2012: 4th
2013: 1st
2014: 1st

That's a pretty stellar resume.  Joe has never fallen below the halfway point in 6 years of Football God.

2014 Runner Up: Rob Klingensmith

2010: 10th
2012: 7th
2013: 3rd
2014: 2nd

It took rob a couple of years to find his footing in this league, but he's finished in the money the last couple of years.

2014 finisher in the money: Gary Yingst

2014: 3rd place

Gary come out in his first year of Football God and showed us what it's like.  Very impressive debut for someone to come in without knowing the intricacies of the league and navigate their way into a money finish.

2008 & 2010 Champion: Anthony Folden

2008: 1st
2009: 3rd
2010: 1st
2011: 9th
2012: 3rd
2013 8th
2014: 11th

Folden has been mostly consistent throughout his Football God history.  Either consistenly in the money, or consistently terrible.  There hasn't been a whole lot of middle ground for this guy.  He's picking first in the draft this year, so maybe things will turn around for him.

2009 & 2012 Champion: Adam Johnson

2008: 4th
2009: 1st
2010: 2nd
2011: 8th
2012: 1st
2013: 7th
2014: 6th

I've won this thing a couple of times, and had a 2nd place finish, but other than that I've had a few not so good finishes.  After a 7th place and 6th place the last couple of years, I need to step it the fuck up.

2011 Champion: Shawn Voyten
There are only like 5 photos of Shawn on the internet, so I had to improvise

2009: 2nd
2010: 8th
2011: 1st
2012: 8th
2013: 6th
2014: 8th 

Shawn was a force to reckon with his first few years in Football God, but he's fallen off the last couple of years.  Maybe he gets back on track this year. 

Jim Rowing
2008: 3rd
2009: 6th
2010: 4th
2011: 3rd
2012: 9th
2013: 5th
2014: 5th

Other than a 9th place finish in 2012, Jim has been really consistent.  He's constantly finishing close to the money, or just in the money without getting over the top to the championship.  Jim is 1 of only 3 (myself and Folden being the others), to compete in Football God every year.  

Daniel Geissler
right before a brutal pancake block
2008: 2nd
2009: 7th
2010: 9th
2011: 6th
2014: 9th

Geiss is back for his 2nd year after a hiatus.  Geiss is the 4th of the originals, and other than a runner up his first year, he's had trouble getting to the top of the leaderboard.  If this picture says anything, Geiss has been training all year.

Chris Coldsmith (Munez)
2009: 4th
2011: 11th
2012: 6th
2013: 9th
2014: 4th

Munez had a few tough years in football god, but finished just outside of the money last year.  He was only 18 points from 3rd adn 32 points from 2nd, so he may be fending for the title this year.

Expansion Teams

David Eplin

Eplin is a recent transplant to Nashville, TN.  He spend some time in Pittsburgh and Morgantown, after growing up in downstate WV.  Many of us know him through a friendship he made with Joe at Pharmacy school.

Matt Cvitkovic (Civ)

Matt hails from Pittsburgh, born and raised in Pittsburgh.  Many of us in the league know him from Edinboro University.  He is recently wed, and a big drinker of Twisted Tea.

And, with no further adieu, my prediction for the 2015 Football God winner.

Colin Reilly
2009: 9th
2011: 10th
2012: 2nd
2013: 2nd
2014: 7th

Colin put together back to back 2nd place finishes, both times it coming down to the Super Bowl itself to decide the champion.  Colin took a step back last year, but with him constantly being competitive in the pick'em and fantasy portion of the league, I think this is the year he puts it all together and gets himself a championship

2015 Predictions:

#1 Colin Reilly
#2 Joe
#3 Folden
#4 Adam
#5 Voyten
#6 Geiss
#7 Jim
#8 Munez
#9 Rob
#10 Eplin
#11 Rob
#12 Civ

No reason to predict Civ for last other than he's the last one to sign up for the leagues.  So i'm just making a guess.

As far as my predictions last year.  I did pretty well near the top.  I had Joe, Gary, Munez, and Shawn in my top 4, 3 of which came true.  I also had John finishing in dead last.  But, come on.  That's the easiest bet you could make.  I'm going to miss bashing him in these.

Good luck to everyone this year.  Should be a crazy fun season.  Let's amp up the shit talk in the facebook group, you fucking pussies.

Football God VIII Rules

Welcome to another year of Football God.  We have 10 returning players this year, and two brand new players.  Those are Will Barnes and Matt Cvitkovic.  I'll start with some basic rules, most of which are copy and pasted from last year.

Here is how you win the Football God Championship.

You need to have the most cumulative points between several different categories.

Fantasy Football
College Weekly Pick'em
Pro Weekly Pick'em
Preseason Predictions.

Survival Pool

There is a NEW way to win points this year.  We will be doing a Survival/Suicide pool (depending on which name you know it by.)

The way this works is you pick one team every week to win a game.  Once you've used a team you cannot use them again the rest of the season.  If you pick a team and they lose, you are eliminated for the season.

There are only two ways to win points in this Survival Pool.  If you are the last person standing, you will win 50 Points.  However, if you and one other person lose on the same week, noone will receive any points.  The only other way to win points, is if you make it all 17 weeks without losing and there is another person who does the same.  In that event, any parties that make it to the end of the season will receive the full 50 points.

Fantasy Football

Fantasy Football scoring will go the same as it did last year.

There will be 12 teams, with the top 6 getting a playoff spot.

You receive 10 points for every regular season win.
You will receive 20 points for playoff wins
The top 2 regular season players will receive a first round bye that also wins them 20 points
If you win the Fantasy Championship you will receive a 50 points.

The draft order goes in reverse of last year's final standings.  With Will and Civ going to the back of the draft order since they are new players.  I flipped a coin for Will and Civ's draft position to make it easy.  That makes our draft order this year as follows.

#1 Folden
#2 Geiss
#3 Shawn
#4 Colin
#5 Adam
#6 Jim
#7 Munez
#8 Gary
#9 Rob
#10 Joe
#11 Civ
#12 Will

As always this will be a snaking draft, so Will has the last pick of the 1st round and the first pick of the second round.  Feel free to trade draft picks if you want.


Pro Pick'em and College Pick'em will work the same as last year.  You will receive one point for every game you predict correctly.  As well as a bonus every week that you have the highest combined total of games picked correctly between college and pro.  When only college or pro are playing (college in august, Pros in December) there will be a 5 point bonus.  The Winner of each Pro and College Pick'em will receive 50 points.  We will not be picking against the spread in the Pro Pick'em this year.

Bowl Pick'em

The bowl pick'em will go the same as last year, with the winner receiving 25 points.


I will send out the Template for Preseason Predictions next week, once I work the bugs out.  10 of the 12 of us know how this works already, so Will and Civ, feel free to ask me any questions once this gets going.

The league dues will be $40 again this year, so please mail them to me at 1441 Potomac Ave Apt#2 Pittsburgh, PA 15216.

If you want to give it to me in person that's fine but please do not hand me cash or send me cash in the mail.  Everything in check form please.

Lastly, we need to lock down a date to do the Fantasy Draft.  We will do it online as always.  The Season starts on Thursday September 10th.  I'd like to have the draft on Sunday September 2nd.  Does that work for everyone?

There will be lots of email requests to join each of the pick'em leagues, survival pool, and the template to fill out.  To the new guys, there is a lot that goes on at the beginning but once the season starts, it's just a matter of making picks for games, and setting a fantasy lineup.  So don't get discouraged.

I'll do my yearly introduction post in a couple of weeks, but in the meantime.  Email me any questions you have.

Point Update 1/22/15

Hey fellas, I'm not going to go to long here, so I'll just get to it.

The biggest victor from championship weekend for us was Jim.  He correctly predicted the AFC and NFC winner as well as the NFC loser.  This gave him 85 big points and put him in the money for now.

The other big winner was Joe, who also correctly predicted the Superbowl.

Gary lost out on all of his potential points and Rob sort of limped along.

So, with only the Superbowl and the individual awards to come out.  Here are our standings.

1. Joe 878
2. Rob 814
3. Jim 796
4. Gary 770
5. Adam 762
6. Munez 742
7. Colin 705
8. Geiss 696
9. Andrew 671
10. Shawn 658
11. Folden 638
12. John 409

What this means, is that Joe has basically wrapped up his second championship in a pretty convincing fashion.  Rob or Jim would baically need to get all of the individual awards to prevent him at this point.

So, what we're really playing for is 2nd place.  Rob and Jim are both vying for that spot.  The other will likely end up with 3rd, with Gary, myself, and Munez on the outside looking in.

There will be one more point update after the individual awards are announced.  Dont' forget to get your last pick'em of the year in.

Point Update 01/13/2015

Hey guys, only a few weeks remain in the Football God season, and thinks are certainly beginning to show themselves.

Yesterday a few people got some points that helped their cause.  Joe was in 3rd going into the finale of the bowl pick'em last night.  However, Munez and I both picked the Ducks, while Joe picked the Bucks.

This gave him 67 points in the bowl pick'em edging out Andrew by 1 point.

This extends his lead on Rob to nearly 40 points and makes him almost a lock to finish in the money.

Geiss and Jim each received 30 points for having Oregon as the National Championship loser.  For Geiss this could be too little too late, but for Jim it appears he may have a new lease on this season.

Geiss's only real chance to get into the money is going to rely on the Colts reaching and winning the Superbowl.  For Jim, he still has his Super bowl champion, loser, and NFC championship loser still in it.  If Seattle and N.E reach the superbowl this week, Jim should jump up to the top 3.

What's going to stop Jim from winning, no matter how it plays out is that Joe has the same Superbowl winner and loser as Jim.  So, Jim's ability to rise can only go so far.

In the rest of the top 6, Rob is sitting at #2 right now.  His biggest hope is that Indi and Seattle both lose this weekend.  That would give him 65 more points and really help him guarentee to finish in the top 2.  Munez is sitting in 6th, not far from the money, but his Ability to rise is based solely on the remaining performance of the Patriots.

The last person to watch is Gary, who has Indi and Green  Bay in the Superbowl.  This could push Gary into the top as well.

As for Me, I sit in 4th only 8 points back from Gary, but it's virtually assured that I'm going to slip the rest of the way.  I have no NFL playoff contenders left to help prop my score up.  So I'll basically be a spectator the rest of the way.

Here are your points up to todays date.

1. Joe 823
2. Rob 784
3. Gary 765
4. Adam 757
5. Jim 721
6. Munez 717
7. Geiss 696
8. Colin 675
9. Andrew 671
10. Shawn 653
11. Folden 608
12. John 384

New Years Point Update

Welcome to 2015 my friends.  I'm going to start this week by posting the points, and then by doing a little bit of analysis afterward.

The big chances this week are from the NFL division and wildcard predictions.  Here is how everyone did in those.

Munez 125
Jim 125
John 120
Joe 105
Rob 105
Adam 105
Geiss 90
Shawn 90
Colin 75
Andrew 75
Gary 60
Folden 60

A couple of things happened from these results.  Obviously, this hurts Gary a lot, as he had a sizeable lead over the rest of the field for 3rd place.

Munez and Jim benefited the most from this as they have pushed themselves into a better shot for the money.

What saved Gary a little bit here was that he and Rob finished tied for 1st place in the Pro Pick'em.  This means that they each get 30 bonus points.

Lastly, on the point front, is the Bowl Pick'em.  In this Munez is leading with 22 out of 32 bowls correct.  However, if you remember, the bigger bowl games are waited more heavily than others.  The points go

2 points for smaller bowl games
5 points for New Years Six bowl games (Rose, Fiesta, Orange, Sugar, Cotton, Peach)
10 points for National Championship

So, Munez had 3 of the New Years 6 games correct, while I had 5 of the 6.  So, I am actually in the lead of this.  Figuring out all of the numbers the totals look like this as a group.

Adam 57
Munez 53
Joe 51
Andrew 50
Shawn 45
Jim 45
Rob 45
Folden 42
Colin 42
Geiss 40
John 40
Gary 40

Again, Gary hasn't done himself any favors in the Bowl Pick'em, dropping double digit points to both Munez and I, the closest people behind him.

So, total points and rankings to this point.

1. Joe 779
2. Rob 769
3. Adam 746
4. Gary 740
5. Munez 704
6. Jim 667
7. Colin 652
8. Geiss 649
8. Andrew 649
10. Shawn 629
11. Folden 583
12. John 376

I'll write more about the Analysis on things next week.  As points won't change much.  I just wanted everyone to know where they stood points wise.
