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)
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.
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.
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
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)
