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).
COLLEGE AND PRO PICK'EM
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
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.
