Eplin's biggest lead of the year

This has to be it right?  Eplin jumps out to a sizable lead and then clings on for the rest of the season?  I think so. 

Eplin won the fantasy league in dominating fashion over Hale, while Folden beat Rob in the 3rd place game.

Bonus points for fantasy went like this

Eplin 60
Hale 40
Folden 20
Rob 10

In other news the week 15 bonus of five points went to Munez and Gary, while the week 16 one went to Gary only. 

Joe has a 2 point lead over Folden and 3 over Jim for the lead in the Pro pick'em with one week to go.

Adding all of these bonus points in, for pick'ems, fantasy, and winning survivor, pick'ems, and fantasy here's where each person stands.

Jim 110
Munez 100
Gary 95
Eplin 90
Joe 85
Hale 65
Folden 55
John 35
Rob 30
Adam 25
Colin 15
Shawn 15

In another arena, Every division except the NFC south has been figured out and Hale was the ONLY person to get any points from the NFC West, AFC south and AFC west.  Picking KC to win the west. 

Here are our measly points earned so far.

Munez 60
Voyten 60
Hale 60
rob 45
john 45
eplin 45
Adam 45
Jim 45
folden 45
joe 30
colin 30
gary 30

In any case.  I'm just going to jump into the points.  I have a lot to do before I hit up New Orleans and can't go into much more detail. 

Fantasy + college predictions + pro predictions + college pick'em + bowl pick'em + bonus+pro pick'em

Remember bowl pick'em each game is worth 2 points at this point, so your score is doubled. 

Eplin 150+190+45+136+12+90+150
Rob 135+145+45+133+24+30+155
Hale 120+145+60+119+24+65+152
folden 105+125+45+135+16+55+159
adam 90+130+45+130+22+25+144
colin 90+170+30+131+14+15+150
gary 90+150+30+134+8+95+157
joe 90+170+30+139+20+85+161
jim 90+125+45+140+18+110+158
shawn 75+125+60+133+14+15+148
john 75+165+45+126+14+35+130
munez 60+120+60+141+16+100+153


Eplin 773
Joe 695
Jim 686
Hale 685
Rob 667
Gary 664
Munez 650
Folden 640
Colin 600
John 590
Adam 586
Shawn 570

so 2nd thru 8th are separated by 55 points.  Me, colin, john, and shawn appear primed to fight it out for dead last. 

The good thing for Eplin is he has amassed a 80 point lead over 2nd.  The bad thing, Joe is in 2nd and on pace to get the 60 point pick'em bonus next week.  Jim is in 3rd overall and on pace to get either the 40 or 20 point bonus. 

The other problem for Eplin is his pro picks.  He will only get 2 divisions, no wildcards, and his superbowl runner up and afc championship loser are all not going to happen. 

His nfc runner up, Atlanta, may not make hte playoffs either. 

Joe also has problems in the NFL predictions.  He has Green bay in the superbowl and the Giants in the nfc championship game.  Also, his wildcards are all done too. 

Jim on the other hand is in a pretty good spot. 

He has Pittsburgh and Seattle as his conference runners up and NE as his superbowl champion still in the mix.  He also has atlana and tennessee as wildcards, and Carolina winning the south. 

Hale is a point behind Jim, and he has Bell and Brown winning the rushing and receiving title.  he'll likely need both of those to happen to have a chance, as well as continue to play strong in the bowl pick'em. 

Each person's chances will be abundantly more clear after this weekend. Until then, Eplin can enjoy the biggest lead he'll have all year.

Hey guys, i wanted to update yinz on what's happened in the past two weeks.  I'm going to be brief on each topic, because there's a lot to cover. 

Fantasy Football

Congrats to Eplin and Hale on reaching the championship game.  The winner earns 60 pts, while the loser earns 40 pts. 

Folden and Rob are playing for points too.  20 pts go to 3rd, 10 to 4th. 


Munez and Gary earned the 5 pt pick'em bonus for week 14.  Good job.  With only 2 weeks left in the Pro Pick'em Folden and Joe sit up at the top, with Jim right behind.  Gary and Rob would need to step it up in the next two weeks to have any chance at the bonus.

Bowl Pick'em

It's obvioulsy early, only 6 games of 41 have been played.  Munez leads with 5 so far.  Most people have at least 3. 


This is where we're going to see the big differences this week. 

The college awards were given out, each correct prediction is worth 25 pts.

Heisman - Baker Mayfield (folden, Joe, Colin)
Doak walker - Bryce Love (noone)
Coach of the year, Frost (noone)
butkis award winner (noone)
Biletnikoff award, James Washington, everyone but Munez, Folden and Jim
Thorpe award, Minkah Fitzpatrick (gary)
Maxwell Award Winner - baker mayfield ( me, Jim, Eplin)

That changes our college prediction points to the following:

Eplin 190
Colin 170
Joe 170
John 165
Gary 150
Rob 145
Hale 145
Adam 130
Jim 125
Voyten 125
Folden 125
Munez 120

The only prediction from here that's still available is the National Championship and the Runner up.  Literally every single one of our runner's up is eliminated.  And, everyone had Alabama winning except Folden and Munez.  


Here's where the divisions stand

Pittsburgh, NE, Philadelphia, Minnesota have all clinched. 

Everyone had NE and Pittsburgh.  Me, Munez, folden, and voyten had Phily.  No one had Minnesota.  

Kansas city, Jacksonville, and the Rams each need one more win to clinch.  

NO, Car, or Atlanta can still win the south.  

The wildcard is a mess right now, but here's the truth.

Dallas and Seattle are playing an elimination game this weekend.  

The packers need to win their last two games and need 4 other games to go their way, including the Falcons losing out, or they'll miss the playoffs.  

Oakland is all but mathematically eliminated. 


The Browns have officially secured a top 3 pick, which is 15 pts for Jim, shawn, munez, rob, john, eplin, and hale.  

Individual awards. 

Bell has  a 21 yard lead over Kareen Hunt and a 40 over Gurley.  Bell winning would benefit many people.

Brown is going to miss the rest of the regular season and has a 220 yard lead over Hopkins.  Brown was selected by 4 people. 

No one appears in line to get the sacks or int leader.

Here are your totals on those predictions that are in the bag.

Munez 60
Voyten 60
Rob 45
john 45
eplin 45
hale 45
Adam 45
Jim 45
folden 45
joe 30
colin 30
gary 30

Point Totals

This is without the Monday night game or the week bonus in here btw.

Fantasy points + college predictions + pro predictions + college pick'em + pro pick'em + bonus

Eplin 150+190+45+136+138+30
Rob 135+145+45+133+141+20
Hale 120+145+45+119+140+25
Folden 105+125+45+135+148+35
Adam 90+130+45+130+131+25
Colin 90+170+30+131+139+15
Gary 90+150+30+134+142+90

John 75+165+45+126+118+35
Munez 50+120+60+141+140+100

Eplin 689
Joe 661
Jim 655
Gary 636
Rob 619
Munez 611
Hale 594
Folden 593
Colin 575
John 564
Adam 551
Shawn 543

So, Eplin leads from his strong showing in the college predictions and fantasy.  Since our last update He's opened up a little bit more of a lead, and he's guaranteed either 40 or 60 pts from the fantasy championship this weekend.

Joe and Jim flip flopped keeping an incredibly close 2nd place race.

Munez dropped from 4th to 6th, Gary and Rob jumping him. 

Colin and John swapped 9th and 10, and Shawn and I swapped 11th and 12th. 

After next week Eplin will probably have a 60 to 80 point lead, and he'll just try to hold off the competition.  Until then, party on.

It's incredibly tight between our top 5 teams.  This means the college awards, pro pick'em bonus, and fantasy bonus are going to mean a lot.  4 of the 6 tams in the fantasy playoffs are in the bottom half of the standings, which is bizarre for us.  

This also puts a lot of importance on our Pro Predictions.  Those should start coming in as early as next week.  Pittsburgh, New england, and Philadelphia, and Minnesota can all clinch, I believe. I'll be putting together the bowl pick'em as soon as Yahoo makes it available.  And after that I probably won't be back for another update for 2 weeks, but I'll probably update on the 19th.

11/28/17 Update

I figured I'd come in with a back to back update since next week shit's about to get nasty.


This is our last week of fantasy and here's where we stand. 

According to Yahoo Eplin and Rob are the only two people who have clinched playoff spots, but that's bullshit. 

Eplin has clinched the 1, Rob the 2, and Hale and Folden are in for sure. 

I'm currently the 5 seed at 6-6, with Jim the #6 seed at 6-6 and Gary #7 at 6-6. 

Behind that Colin, John, and Joe all sit at 5-7. 

So, what can still realistically happen? 

Let's start with Joe & John.  Only 5 points seperate them for the season, so they're both in pretty much the same boat.  John plays Hale so he can't really help his cause.  Joe would need to beat me.  Eplin to beat Jim.  Here's the problem for both of them though.  Gary plays Colin. 

If Joe beats me that would put him at 6-6, same as me.  But I have the point tiebreaker.  So, that only leaves the 6 seed.  Since Colin plays Gary, they pretty much elminates John and Joe.  If Gary wins he's 7-6, which Joe and John can't match; and if Colin wins, he's 6-7 and ha a 100 point lead over Joe and John in the tiebreakers. 

So, they're both essentially elminated. 

Colin's road to the playoffs is easier.  He needs to beat Gary and hope that one of two things happen.  #1 Jim loses or #2 I lose and he's able to make up the 52 point difference between us he would need in a tiebreaker.  Tough, but not impossible. 

Gary essentially needs to win and hope Jim or I lose, or He wins and is able to jump the 20 point difference between him and Jim.

My road is easiest, win and in.


The pick'em is tight as dick skin.  Munez is at 140 with Jim at 139.  With only 7 games on the docket this weekend, this is pretty much your championship round.

Joe is in 3rd with 136, so he could slide into 2nd if one of the two does bad enough.  Eplin, Gary, and Folden are all tied in 4th at 132, which 4th is good for 10 points, but if you have to split it 4 ways, it's relatively meaningless.


Folden holds a 2 point lead over Jim and Joe, while Rob sits 3 back. 


Rob earned the pick'em bonus this year, for his first bonus points of the season, while Colin earned the 5 point fantasy bonus. 

This coming week is the last 10 point bonus of the season for the pick'em.  It reverts to a 5 point bonus for the rest of the season.  Next week is also the last 5 point fantasy football bonus of the year. 


I'm going to start with the NFL, because they are more speculative at the moment, but things are getting clearer. 


   - Philly (picked by  adam, shawn, folden, munez)

They need to win one more game, or Dallas or Washington lose a game.  out of the next 5.  This shit is done. 


Pittsburgh & New England (picked by everyone)
Minnesota (picked by noone)

Each of these three teams has a 3 game lead with 5 to play. 

Kansas City (picked by Hale)
    They once looked like a lock, and now only have a 1 game lead over the Chargers and Raiders, both of which were picked by everyone else. 

Los Angeles Rams (picked by noone) have a one game lead over Seattle (picked by everyone)

Tennessee (picked by me, shawn, colin, rob, eplin, and hale) are tied at 7-4 with Jacksonville who noone picked.  Houston was picked by many people and are not going to win. 

New Orleans and Carolina are both 8-3 with Atlanta one game back at 7-4.  This shit's nuts.  No idea at the moment. 


The individual award finalists have announced.  Feel free to look up and see if you had anyone in the finals.  I think everyone had one person at least.  Some people had as many as 3.


ACC - John is the only person to take either Clemson or Miami, and he'll benefit if the Hurricanes win. 

AAU  - Memphis vs UCF
Noone had either of them, so it's a loss.

BIG 10 - Ohio St vs Wisconsin
Most people had Ohio state, however Me, Hale, and Shawn had Wisconsin.  Rob & Jim's picks have already been elminated.

Big 12 Oklahoma vs TCU
There are 5 people with Oklahoma winning the Big 12, with trendy pick Ok St fizzling out.  Hale has the most to benefit here, having them both winning the Big 12 and in the Playoff.

Conference USA FAU vs North Texas. 
Noone of us had either.

MAC Akron vs Toledo
All of us had Toledo except Munez.

Fresno st vs Boise st
Boise was picked by shawn, joe, munez, rob, john, and eplin.

Pac 12
We all had USC so it's irrelvant

Auburn vs Georgia
None of us win.  we all lose. 

The sunbelt will be figured out this weekend too.  They are starting a conference championship next year, but in the meantime.  this is it. 


Keep in mind.  After this week shit's going to change a lot.  The college pick'em bonus will be in and all of our conference championships, as well as the final four. 

Fantasy (15 pts) + pro pick'em + college pick'em + bonus points

Eplin 135+110+132+20
Rob 120+112+128+10
Folden 105+115+132+35
Hale 105+109+116+25
Adam 90+103+128+25
Jim 90+113+139+70
Gary 90+110+132+85
Colin 75+109+127+15
Joe 75+113+136+55
John 75+102+124+35
Shawn 60+105+129+5
Munez 60+107+140+30


Gary 420
Jim 412
Eplin 397
Folden 387
Joe 379
Rob 370
Hale 355
Adam 346
Munez 337
John 336
Colin 326
Shawn 299

So here we go.  Our base scores are set.  Now shit's about to get nutty.  next week baby-o.

Survivor's survive Update

Glory be, glory be.  Survivor Pool is over.  Jim, Joe, and Gary all took the X this week with Kansas City, but Gary's zero strike advantage has made him the victor.

That's 60 points for Gary.

2nd place is 40, and 3rd is 20, meaning that Joe and Jim will split the total, giving them 30 points a piece.

The college pick'em is moving towards a logical conclusion.  With two weeks to go Munez has a solid lead of four games.  Jim has moved into 2nd with 128 and Joe is at 126.  Gary and Folden are tied in 4th.

1st - 4th get bonus points this year, so keep that in mind.

The pro pick'em is still pretty tight. 10 pts is the difference from 1st to last, with 96 games remaining.

Folden is leading the way with 103, Joe at 102, and Jim at 100.  So, basically if you get the point, Joe and Jim are in the running for every single bonus point for top finishes this year.

The pick'em bonus for Week 11 went to Colin, who got his first bonus of the year.  Week 12 was a 3 way tie between myself, Gary, and Folden.

I copy and pasted the totals for the bonus points below, if you want to know how I've gotten your bonus point total.

Fantasy Football

Congrats to Eplin on locking down the first playoff spot of the year.  1 more win should lock up a first round bye for him.

2nd and 3 are tied at 7-4.  This is Rob & Hale who for all intent and purposes have locked up playoff spots as well.  They will be battling Eplin for the 1st round bye.

in 4th and 5th we have Folden and Gary at 6-5.  Folden's point totals for the year have him in a better spot then Gary, as  Folden would win the tie break over just about anyone else below him, but possibly me.  Folden likely needs 1 more win to lock up a spot.

Gary's point total is literally the lowest in the league, and it's an abomination that he has a winning record.  He'll likely need to win out, because he's not beating anyone as of now in a tie breaker.

Below Gary we have 5 teams tied at 5-6.  Myself, Colin, Jim, John, and Joe.  I hhold the tiebreaker at the monent, with Colin not far behind.  It's feasible that he or I could go 1-1 and make the playoffs, but more likely 2-0 would be needed by all of us.

Remaining schedule.

Folden - Colin, Rob

Gary - Eplin, Colin

Adam - Hale, Joe

Colin- Folden, Gary

Jim - Joe, Eplin

John - Voyten, Hale

Joe -  Jim, Adam

So, as you can see everyone is playing one another.  Except John.  John sort of has to just win and see how it shuffles out. 

Point totals.

Fantasy (15 pt) + pro pick'em + college pick'em + bonus points

Eplin 120+98+120+20
Rob 105+99+116+0

So there's your totals. 

In two weeks the pro and college pick'em bonus will be in.  Also all of the conference champions, final four, and other predictions will be in.  Things are going to change quite a bit by the next update.  Happy thanksgiving.

Update 11/7

Things have certainly moved along in the past two weeks.


With four games to play, we have four of each 6-3, 5-4, 4-5, and 3-6.  Munez has won 2 in a row when he needed to to bring himself back from the dead.  Rob has lost two in a row, turning his 99% playoff chance to drop to around 80%.  This is as close as it's going to be all year.   Right?  It can't stay this tight can it?  Here are your week 10 matchups.

Adam 4-5 vs Jim 5-4
Hale 5-4 vs Gary 5-4
Joe 4-5 vs Folden 6-3
Eplin 6-3 vs Munez 3-6
Colin 4-5 vs Shawn 3-6
Rob 6-3 vs John 3-6

If Joe, John, and Munez are able to win this week, we'll have a two game difference between 1st and 12 place. 

The 5 point bonus in week 8 went to folden, and hale in week 9.


Sometimes abstaining is a solid strategy; however, it is not smart in a survivor pool.  John decided to kick back and relax, not making a pick and getting eliminated.  He was able to split the 10 points that go to 4th place though, as Folden's Seattle Pick got Kirk Cousined. 

In week 8 those two each earned the 5 point bonus for making it this far, with Jim, Gary, and Joe joining them.

Your survivor pool points now look like this.

John & Folden 10
Joe, gary, jim 5.

20 points will go to 3rd, 40 to 2nd, and 60 to first.  Or they will be split, in any manner of tie.  Survivor Pool points will be included only in the scoring of bonus points.


With only 4 weeks to play, Munez holds a 1 point lead over Joe, and a 6 point lead over Jim.    Eplin and Shawn sit 8 back.

Jim leads the Pro pick'em with 84.  Joe, Gary, John, and Folden are 3 back.  Rob and Hale 4 back.  The rest of us a few back. 

As far as our bonus's go.  Hale, folden, and munez each earned the 10 point bonus in week 9 in the pick'em.  And Joe, and John earned it in week 10.

2nd Update

Hey, time for another update now that we're 8 weeks into the season.  I'll try to be as thorough as possible.


8 weeks in and another one bites the dust.  USC got a big time spanking from Notre Dame this weekend, which will end their CFP hopes.

Everyone but Gary had them in the CFP, adding to FSU who most people had as well.  Nobody has all of their 4 teams left in the mix, but some are better off then others.  Everyone has Alabama, so that's a wash acros the board.

Me, Shawn, Joe, Munez, Hale, and Gary still have 3 teams left in the running, while Jim was hit the hardest, with Michigan, USC, and Florida State already out.

For those with 3 teams left, most of them are a loss away from being elimated, whether it's Oklahoma, OK State, or Ohio State.  Other than Alabama, my Wisconsin pick and Rob's Penn state pick are the only two undefeated teams left in the mix, other than Alabama.


The easiest way to do this is to speak of who is eliminated already as opposed to who is still in it.

ACC - Florida State is done, making John's Miami pick the only one left.

PAC-12 & SEC Everyone had alabama and usc so it's irrelevant

Big 10 - Jim's Michigan pick is likely done.  Everyone else's Penn st, Wisconsin, and Ohio st picks are still in the mix.

Big 12 - Munez's Texas pick seems a year early and is done.

Sunbelt- Everyone took Applachian state who is undefeated, except Munez and Eplinw ho took troy and are 2-1.

American, MAC,  - everyone's picks are still relevant

MWC - SDSU has lost 2 games in conference, and Fresno is 4-0 in conference play, including a win over San Diego st.  So it's looking more like Colin, Hale, and Gary's pick is done for.

Conference USA- Lousiana Tech was picked by 5 people, and they sit at 1-2 in conference right now.  They are a game behind 2 teams, and tied with many.  One more loss has them done...Also John's horrendous Old Dominion pick is done for.

As far as our Top 10 pick to fall out of the top 25 goes.  John's pick of Michigan is the only one looking good right now.

Team finishing highest in top 25 is close too.

Relevant picks

#4 TCU - me and folden
#10 Notre Dame - shawn
#15 NC state - Joe

The other picks of Nebraska, Boise St, UCLA, northwestern, minnesota, Texas, and Oregon are all looking like they won't happen.

College Awards.

According to ESPN's Hesiman watch it's pretty much a 3 person race at the moment between Barkley from Penn St, Bryce love from Stanford, and Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma.  Mason Rudolph is in the mix at 4th.

Assuming that's correct, that leaves Me with Barkley, shawn and rob with Mason Rudolph, and Joe, Folden, and Colin with Mayfield still in the mix.

I don't have the slightest fucking clue about the rest of the awards.


Since the week 4 update Survivor Pool has been a BLOOD BATH.

After 4 weeks we had 4 strikes total.

Week 5 offered 8 strieks and eliminated Colin and Eplin.

Week 6 was even worse, eliminating Me, Hale, Munez, Rob, and Shawn.

This leaves after week 7 with Gary as the only team without a strike.  Amazing considering he only made it 6 weeks in the two years previous combined.

Still alive with 1 strike are John, Joe, Jim and Folden.

The top 4 finishers all earn points, so we're on the cutoff now.


Pro Pick'em is tied between Rob, Jim, and John at 64 each.  Last place is Colin with 55.  Still tons of time for people to make up ground.


College Pick'em is still pretty tight (except for Hale), with 6 weeks to go.

Joe has jumped into the lead and has 94 correct.  Munez sits one back, Jim is 3 back.

After that the rest of us (except for Hale) sit between 6 and 12 back.

That still leaves everyone (except for Hale) in the mix.  However, for those more than 10 back there needs to be some moves made in the next couple of weeks.

Hale is 27 back.

Bonus Points


 Week 1 adam, john, eplin (5 point)
 Week 2 John
 Week 3 Jim
 Week 4 Munez & Gary
 Week 5 Joe
 Week 6 Jim
 Week 7 Jim
 Week 8 Eplin

5 point fantasy bonus

Week 1 munez
Week 2 Munez
Week 3 Adam
week 4 Hale
Week 5 Adam
Week 6 Hale
Week 7 Eplin

This is how the bonus points have gone so far this year.  The people who survive next week in Survivor Pool will get a 5 point bonus as well.

Pro Predictions

Things are getting more desperate in the Pro Predictions.  The individual awards are already a shit show and Aaron Roodgers breaking his collarbone has knocked him out of MVP consideration, which fucked 5 people.

This also screws a lot of people in the playoff predictions.  Everyone except Eplim had Green bay winning their division, Rob and I have them winning the Superbowl.  Jim Joe, Munez, Colin and Hale have them losing the Superbowl.

Shawn, Folden, John have them losing the NFC Championship.

The Falcons, Bucs, Cowboys, Giants and Raiders have all been taken at least to Conference championship games all sit at .500 or worse.

Joe's pick of the NYG to win their divison and lose in the NFC Championship game has been obliterated.

In short, there are a lot of shitty picks in the NFL this year.

As far aas our bottom 3 picks go this year.  It's looking more and more like the Jaguars aren't going to be down there this year.  And the couple of people who took the Rams (like me) look foolish.  The Jets are about a win or two away from being out of that situation too.


Looks like Rob is probably going to be in the playoffs.  He's 6-1 and has a pretty big lead on the most points scored in the league.  He's 3 up on 7th place in the playoffs. 

After that Folden and Hale sit at 5-2

Eplin, Jim, and Joe are at 4-3.  Thats the cutoff right at the moment. 

After that we have Colin, Me, Gary, at 3-4.  Shawn and John at 2-5.  Munez at 1-6.  Honestly, munez is going to need to probably win out from here to make the playoffs, being 3 back from all of these people.

Point Totals

Fantasy wins (15 pts) + pro pick'em + college pick'em + bonus points =

Rob 90+64+85+0

Here are your standings through 7 weeks of the season.  I'll do another update, probably around 11/14

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

1st Update

Hey, it's been pretty crazy busy for me the past month, so I haven't had a lot of time to update.  First thing's first.  I want to update who all owes dues


John $60
Colin $60
Munez $60
Gary $50
Jim $10
Folden $10

Download Venmo app and send that as soon as you can.


So far the pick'ems are pretty tight.

Eplin has a 1 point lead over john and hale, and a 2 point lead over folden and rob.  The furthest person back is 7 back, which is me.

Munez is leading the college pick'em at 64 with Joe 2 back and Gary 3 back. Hale is already 17 back.

The bonus's have gone like this so far.

Week 1 Adam, John, Eplin (5 pts college only):
Week 2 John
Week 3 Jim
Week 4 Munez & Gary
Week 5 Joe


4 weeks in and noone is eliminated, which means everyone earned the first bonus of 5 points.  That being said, I'm not going to bother factoring it into the score, because it's a non issue.

That being said, 4 people have a strike already.

Folden and Munez for trusting Cutlerfucker in week 3, when the dolphins lost to the Jets.
Eplin for trusting the Jags against the Jets.
Colin for spotting all of us a strike and not making a week 1 pick.

Which fool is going to go against the Jets this week?


5 weeks in and we have a five way tie at 3-1 between Eplin, Hale, Rob, Folden, and Joe.

Shawn and Gary both at 2-2

Me, Jim, Colin at 1-3

Munez at 0-4.

Week 5 schedule

1-3 Colin vs 3-1 Hale
2-2 Shawn vs 1-3 Jim
0-4 Munez vs 2-2 Gary
1-3 Adam vs 3-1 Rob
3-1 Folden vs 2-2 John

Game of the Week
3-1 Joe vs 3-1 Eplin

Remember 15 pts go for each fantasy win and 5 pts to the highest scoring team that loses this year.

This bonus has gone as such in the first 4 weeks.

1. Munez
2. Munez
3. Adam
4. Hale


A few people have had the dreaded Red highlight of doom already.

In the pros, Jim's pick of Adrian Peterson to win the comeback player of the year, and the rushing title look long lost.

Jim, Voyten, and Munez's pick of Dalvin Cook to win are dashed now that he's torn his ACL

My pick of Hue Jackson & Hale's of Ben Mcadoo to win the coach of the year are a combined 0-8.

John's pick of Deshone Kizer has been brutally bad for OROY, and Folden's pick of Corey Davis can't get on the field.

7 of us took Myles Garrett who finally appears ready to step on the field, so it's an uphill battle there.

Voyten's pick of Eric Berry to lead the league in Interceptions is out with a torn achilles, and his pick of David Carr might miss 6 weeks.

Add in Folden, Joe, Rob, and Eplin's David Johnson choice to win the rushing title, while he's out for the year.

Basically, this is the most fucked our individual awards have been this early in a long time.

Other than that,  there are a couple of people who took the Chargers and the Giants to win their divisions, and there's Joe who took both of them.  So, things are looking a little hairy so far for a lot of us.

College Predictions

This isn't quite as fucked, but a big change already in college.  Florida State is effectively done in the Final Four, and is one loss away from being done in the conference too.

Realistically, the conference schedule has just gotten going, and most conferences back load their good games, so Jack shit will be known about this for a bit still.


fantasy football wins (15 pts) + pro score + college score + bonus points.

Rob 45+39+58
Eplin 45+41+58+(5)
Hale 45+40+47+(5)
Folden 45+39+54
Joe 45+35+62+(10)
John 30+40+59+(15)
Gary 30+36+61+(10)
Shawn 30+38+58
Adam 15+34+55+(10)
Jim 15+38+57+(10)
Colin 15+36+57
Munez 0+35+64+(20)

Totals as of 10/3

Joe 152
Eplin 149
John 144
Rob 142
Folden 138
Hale 137
Gary 137
Shawn 126
Jim 120
Munez 119
Adam 114
Colin 108

Obviously really early still.  But here's an indication of where you stand now.

NFL Preview

Hey, quick up date from the first week of the College Football season before we get into the NFL.

The week one 5 point bonus went to Me, John, and Eplin who each got 13 right in the first week of the college pick'em.

The only other thing to speak about is how everyone that picked Florida St in the final four are preeeeeetttty much fucked after their starting qb tore his patella tendon this past weekend.

As you can see above we have some more variance than we do in the College side of things.

I don't really have time for a long preview today, but I wanted you guys to get a look at this before the season started if you wanted it.

Football God College Predictions

Thanks to everyone for getting me the college predictions.  I wanted to give you guys an update on where everyone landed.  Hope you guys are ready to bang some erasers, because there's a lot of chalk this year.

We'll start with the unanimous conferences.

Every person had Alabama and USC winning their conference.  And, everyone had Alabama in the Final Four this year.  So, no points will be won by anyone on those. So

SEC - Boring
PAC 12 - As Fuck

The Near Unanimous

ACC - Florida State - 11/12 have them winning the ACC, John being the lone wolf, picking Miami.

 AAC - South Florida - 11/12 have USF, with Munez picking SMU.

MAC -  Toledo - 11/12 have them winning, with again, Munez, picking Western Michigan.
If you're starting to gather a theme, you're going to see Munez's name a lot in the list of outliers.

Sun Belt - App State, 10/12.  Munez and Eplin picking Troy.

The most Diverse Picks

Conference USA - Conference USA has 3 teams picked.  Western Kentucky with 6, Louisiana Tech with 5, and oddly as fuck, Old Dominion with 1.  

Big 10 - Four different teams are predicted.  Ohio State leading the way with 7.  Followed by Wisconsin with 3, and Michigan and Penn State each getting a single vote.  Oddly, more people have OSU in the college football playoff then they do winning their conference.

Big 12 -There are three teams picked to win the Big 12 this year.  Oklahoma St surprisingly leading the way with 6.  Oklahoma is right behind with 5.  Texas getting one vote by who other than Munez.

Mountain West - This was the best this year as far as parody goes.  There were 4 teams picked, Boise St with 6, San Diego St with 3, Colorado st with 2, and Wyoming with 1.

The Final Four

National Champion - Alabama.  10/12 people have them winning it all this year.  Munez picking USC and Folden picking Ohio State.
Final Four - The top 4 teams in the early polls are Alabama, USC, Ohio State, and Florida St.  There are 48 predictions between the 12 of us, and 40 of the 48 go to these 4 teams.

Alabama 12/12
USC 11/12 - everyone but Gary
Ohio State 10/12 everyone but Rob and Jim.
Florida State 7/12

The people who picked the chalk top 4 are Folden, John, Eplin, and Munez.

So, where were the other 8 picks represented?

3 of these 8 went to Oklahoma St, being picked by Voyten, Gary, and Joe.

2 of the 8 went to Oklahoma, being picked by Hale and Munez.

1 pick each went to Wisconsin (me), Michigan (Jim), and Penn State (Rob)

First Red out of the Year

Finally, I want to give credit to Hale, for getting a red X through one of his picks already.  He picked Texas to finish the highest in the coaches poll, even though they started the season ranked.  Thanks, Hale.  There's always one.

Monday, August 14, 2017


Welcome to your annual presentation of the participants. Hard to believe we're a decade into this.  nutso.  Let's start with the usual, the list of previous champions

2008: Folden
2009: Adam
2010 Folden
2011: Shawn
2012: Adam
2013: Joe
2014: Joe
2015: Jim
2016: Adam


2009, 2012, &; 2016 Champion:  Adam Johnson

2008: 4th
2009: 1st
2010: 2nd
2011: 8th
2012: 1st
2013: 7th
2014: 6th
2015: 2nd
2016: 1st

Three time, Three time, Three time champ.

2008 &; 2010 Champion, and 2016 Runner Up:  Anthony Folden

2008: 1st
2009: 3rd
2010: 1st
2011: 9th
2012: 3rd
2013: 8th
2014: 11th
2016 2nd

Folden had a rough go of it for a few years there, but has managed a 4th and 2nd in the past two years to really round out his resume.  He has 5 top 3's in the 9 years of FBG

2011 Champion &; 2016 3rd place finisher:  Shawn Voyten

2009:  2nd
2010: 8th
2011: 1st
2012 8th
2013: 6th
2014: 8th
2015: 8th
2016: 3rd

Shawn had a few rough years there in FBG, but he rebounded and got into the money this year for the 3rd time in 8 years.  Again, Shawn has 0 pictures on Facebook that you can find of him, so I typically pick something that embodies his soul.

2 Time champion:  Joe McLane

2009: 5th
2010: 5th
2011: 2nd
2012: 4th
2013: 1st
2014: 1st
2015: 5th
2016: 5th

Impressively, in Joe's 8 years in FBG he's never fallen below 5th place.  3 money finishes and 2 titles.  Consistent as ever.

2015 Champion Jim Rowing:  

2008: 3rd
2009: 6th
2010: 4th
2011: 3rd
2012: 9th
2013: 5th
2014: 5th
2015: 1st
2016: 10th

Last year was an odd off year for Jim.  He had only finishes lower than 6th once going into last year.  Probably an aberration.

Colin Reilly

2009: 9th
2011: 10th
2012: 2nd
2013: 2nd
2014: 7th
2015: 3rd
2016: 4th

The last few years, Colin has been about as steady as can be in the standings.  4 finishes in 5 years between second and fourth place.  Colin typically will lead or be in the top two for most of the season, but the predictions tend to fuck him out of a title.

Rob Klingensmith

2009: 10th
2012: 7th
2013: 3rd
2014: 2nd
2015: 7th
2016: 7th

A couple of money finishes for Rob over the past few years, but 7th place seems to be his comfort spot, finishing there twice in a row, and 3 times in the past 5 years.

Gary Yingst

2014: 3rd
2015: John Mclane
2016: 8th

All over the map for Gary at this point.  fluctuating between many different spots.

David Eplin

2015: 6th
2016: john Mclane

Eplin finishes in dead last in 2016, and he had to be the poor 1st son of a bitch to not get the #1 pick in the fantasy draft this year.

Chris Coldsmith

2009: 4th
2011: 11th
2012: 6th
2013: 9th
2014: 4th
2015: 10th
2016:  11th

A couple bad years for Munez in a row now.  He's due to crack into the moeny, with a couple of 4th places under his belt.

Chris Hale

2016: 9th

Hale had a pretty good year last year in a lot of ways, but his predictions were very bad.  2nd year usually course corrects some of the prediction stuff.  So, let's see how he does.

Welcome back to 4 time Last Place winner John McLane

2010: 6th
2011: last
2012: last
2013: last
2014: last

Welcome back, buddy.  It's didn't feel right having Gary and Eplin win last.  Glad you're back to reclaim your prize.

Football God X Rules

Ten years in the making baby.  Let's jump in right away with the different categories that go into winning FoGo-X.

Fantasy Football
College Weekly Pick'em
Pro Weekly Pick'em
Preseason Predictions
Survivor Pool
Bowl Pick'em

Let's start with the changes


Payment (Big change so pay attention)

Instead of doing check mailing this year, we're going to do online transfers through the VENMO app.  $50 per person, per usual.  This should help get the money to me quicker.

NOTE:  I'm not accepting money in person anymore.  It's a variable that I've always hated about football god.

Fantasy Football

15 points will be awarded per fantasy football win & 5 points will be awarded to the team that scores the most points, but loses.  This is being done to make Fantasy a bigger impact on the end of the season standings.

Survivor Pool

We're going to make a couple of changes to get more people in on the scoring.  This season if people make it past Week 4 they will receive 5 points.  If they make it past Week 8 they will receive 5 points.  If they make it past Week 12 they will receive 5 points.

Additionally, we will open scoring up a little bit more

1st 60 pts
2nd 40 pts
3rd 20 pts
4th 10 pts

This will provide the people who don't finish at the top to mitigate the damage a little bit.

2017 Rules:

Survivor Pool, College Pick'em, Pro Pick'em, Fantasy Football

1st place - 60 bonus points
2nd place - 40 bonus points
3rd place- 20 bonus points.
4th place - 10 bonus points.

If there is a tie, the points get split evenly, when they can't be split evenly they are rounded up to the nearest number.

Fantasy Football

Fantasy Football will work the same as always


Win worth 15 points, highest scoring loser gets 5 each week. 

Football God 10 Draft Order

2. Joe

4. Gary
5. Hale
6. Jim
7. Munez
8. Eplin
9. Shawn
10. Folden
11. Adam
12. John

Bowl Pick'em

The bowl pick'em is not against the spread.  You receive 2 points for each correct bowl prediction.  5 points for the New year's 6 bowls.  And 10 points for the Championship game.

However,  new to this year.  The person with the most overall correct predictions will win the 25 point bonus.  Make sure that you do the tiebreaker this year, as a tie in the overall standings will result in Yahoo! Tie breaker coming into play.

The bonus in the Bowl Pick'em will be 

1st 30 points
2nd 20 points
3rd 10 points

Pro & College Pick'em

You receive one point for each game you predict correctly.  College is done with the ranked teams against the spread, pros is straight up.  There is a weekly bonus given to the team with the highest total points between both pros and college of 10 points.  If there is a tie, everyone receives the full bonus.  The weeks where only one of the two leagues is playing results in a 5 point bonus.  

At the end of the season if two people are tied in one of the pick'ems.  They will divide the points equally (i.e tied for 1st and 2nd would result in each person getting a 50 point bonus instead of 60 and 40)  


The predictions template will be sent out sometime at the beginning of August.  It's self explanatory.  It will remain mostly the same.  

Survivor Pool
The Survivor Pool point payout has already been listed above for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

The way this works is as follows.   You choose one team each week that you think will win the game.  If you get it right you move on to the next week.  If you're wrong you get a strike.  If you're wrong a second time, you're out.

5 point bonus's for remaining after week 4, 8, and 12
You can only use each team once a season.

Final Scores

So, in big time upset form, Folden has risen from the ashes of his pathetic Fantasy Football season to climb to 2nd overall.

Jonathan Allen won the Lombardi Award Saturday, earning Folden 25 points and $150.  Voyten falls to 3rd and wins $50.

I am your Football God champ and win the $400 prize.

Here are your final scores.

1. Adam 1030
2 Folden 920
3 Shawn 913
4 Colin 900
5 Joe 854
6 Geiss 792
7 Rob 783
8 Gary 756
9 Hale 737
10 Jim 728
11 Munez 657
12 Eplin 557

Thoughts on final standings

Adam- This is my 3rd title and 5th top 2 finish.  Pretty good in 9 years.  My other 4 years have been pretty shitty though.

 This is Folden's 4th top 3 finish and first since 2012.  His first time since 2010 finishing in the top 2.

This is Voyten's 3rd top 3 finish and first since he won in 2011.

Colin fell out of the top 3, but still has 4 top 4 finishes in the last 5 years.  Pretty impressive.

In what's probably the most impressive stat, Joe has finished in the top 5 for his 8th consecutive year.  In that time he has 2 championships, a runner up, a 4th, and now four 5th place finishes.

Folden and Shawn contact about your winnings.

Post Superbowl update

Hey party people.  Wanted to give you guys some updates as we have our final NFL points in.

I need to preempt though, that for the first time the Football God season isn't over.  The lombardi award isn't awarded until this weekend, so we will have a hold out before we get the final scores.

So, the faggy Patriots took advantage of a major choke job giving the the title.

That's 30 points for Hale.

Individual awards are sort of a wash for the most part.

NFL MVP - Matt Ryan

Offensive Rookie - Dak Prescott

Defensive Rooke - Joey Bosa

Coach of the Year - Jason Garrett

Noone had any of these people.

Jordy Nelson - Comeback player of the year.

predicted by Adam, Shawn, Folden Hale, and Joe

And for the pick'em.  New England was chosen by Folden, Colin, Hale, and Gary.

So your points for this week are

Hale 60
Folden 30
Joe 20
Adam 20
Shawn 20
Colin 10
Gary 10

Easy enough.  Add those to the totals and here's where we stand.

Adam 1030
Shawn 913
Colin 900
Folden 895
Joe 854
Geiss 792
Rob 783
Gary 756
Hale 737
Jim 728
Munez 657
Eplin 557

And in the most annoying move in Football God history, we need to wait 1 more week for the Lombardi Award to be handed out to the most fart mouth College Football Player of the year.

First off, what fucking college award comes out a month after the season?  Obviously someone who has a desperate desire to be noticed.  Insecure Rotary club.  Additionally, there website is SLIGHTLY more advanced then the angelfire page I made in highschool.

Ugh.  Anyway.  Even though I have beaten you all into submission, 2nd-4th are still up for grabs.

Finalists for this dumb award are Jonathan Allen, Lamar Jackson, Jabrill Peppers, and Myles Garrett.

Folden chose Jonathan Allen.

Myles Garrett is chosen by Me, Voyten, Joe, Hale, Eplin, and Gary.

This prediction is worth 25 points.  So, basically.

If Jonathan Allen wins, then Folden jumps from 4th to 2nd, pushing Shawn to 2nd, and Colin out of the money. Any other winner results in Shawn finishing in 2nd, and Colin in 3rd.

Other than that, no matter who wins, the standings are set.  So your Fantasy draft places, other than top 4 are as follows.

1. Folden or Colin
2. Joe
3. Geiss
4. Rob
5. Gary
6. Hale
7. Jim
8. Munez
9. Eplin
10. Colin or Shawn
11. Shawn or Folden
12. Adam

That's it for now.  Back next week for final standings.

Post championship update

So, let's start with what predictions we have left.

The superb owl champion can only be predicted by hale.

The NFL awards Will Be Given out eventually....So Those still Exist

And the Lombardi award isn't given out until the week after superbowl. So let's enjoy never picking that award again.

In the meantime. Nobody had the Falcons in the super bowl. And the people who repped the pats are me, folden, and hale. 20 points a piece

Also me and folden had the steelers losing the afc title game. So that's 15 points to each of us.

And, myself, jim, colin, and geiss had the Packers as nfc championship losers. That's 15 points a piece too.

Lastly each of the pick em were worth 5 points with me, jim, folden, colin, shawn, and hale eacheck getting 1 game right.

So here are the points earned this week.

Adam 55
Folden 40
Hale 25
Jim 20
Colin 20
Geiss 15
Shawn 5

That puts our season total at this point to this.

Adam 1010
Shawn 893
Colin 890
Folden 865
Joe 834
Gross 792
Rob 783
Gary 746
Jim 728
Hale 677
Munez 657
Epson 557

Really close between 2nd and 3rd. The superbowl pickem may be the decider there.

Also don't discount folden yet. If he's able to profit in one of the individual awards then he could jump into the top 2 as well.

And, it's official that I'm going to be the champion of football god 9.

That's it for today. Back for another update after the individual award finalists are named

Little Update

Hey, small update after the weekend.

Next week, there are a good amount of points that will be distributed depending on which way the title games go.  Lots of people have the Pats, Steelers, and Packers lined up in someway, whether it's in the sb or losing their respective championship games.

Here's how things shook out from the 2 points for each game from last night.  Next week's pick's are worth 5 points a piece, fyi.

Gary 8
Shawn 8
Folden 6
Hale 6
Adam 6
Rob 6
Colin 6
Munez 6
Joe 6
Geiss 4
Jim 4
Eplin 0


Adam 955
Shawn 888
Colin 870
Joe 834
Folden 825
Rob 783
Geiss 777
Gary 746
Jim 708
Munez 657
Hale 652
Eplin 557

Seattle's loss hurt the placing chances of a few people out there. Let's see what happens next week.

Point Update

What's up guys.  Quick update now that the National Championship is over

Folden, Colin, and Gary each earned 30 points for picking Clemson to win it all.

Jim earned 20 points for picking Alabama as the runner up.

Folden and kentucky Hillbilly earned 10 points for picking Clemson in the bowl pick'em.

Folden, Hale, and Munez all finished tied for 2nd in the bowl pick 'em, so they split 2nd and 3rd place points, so 10 points a piece.

As far as the NFL pick'em went:

Folden, Geiss, Gary, Rob, Munez, and Shawn got 8 point.

Hale, Colin, Adam, and Joe got 6 points.

Jim got 4 points, and Eplin has apparently thrown in the towel.

For the week, the biggest mover was Folden, but here are your totals.

Folden 58
Colin 36
Gary 38
Jim 24
Hale 16
Munez 18
Dan 8
Rob 8
Shawn 8
Adam 6
Joe 6

Adam 947
Shawn 880
Colin 864
Joe 828
Folden 819
Rob 777
Geiss 773
Gary 738
Jim 704
Munez 651
Hale 646
Eplin 557

Compared to last week, Folden made the biggest jump.  He went from 7th to 5th, and while he was 67 points out of 3rd then with 4 people to pass, he's now 45 points out of 3rd with 2 people to pass.  And, he's only 9 points out of 4th.

This helped Colin a lot too, as Joe had Bama winning and Clemson as the runner up.  If Bama had won, Joe would be solidly in 3rd place, with the ability to catch Shawn for 2nd.

As it stands, Colin now only sits 16 points behind Shawn for 2nd.

I have a 67 point lead over Shawn and an 83 point lead over Colin.

So, let's start with this question.  Can I still be caught?

Colin & Shawn both had Arizona winning the Superbowl and Pittsburgh in the superbowl.  They both also had New England losing the AFC Championship.  Most points available to them here are 35.  Shawn also had Carolina losing the NFC title game, so no points for him.  Colin had Green Bay so there's 15 more points available to him.

Colin also had Aaron Rodgers as MVP and he's on the short list to win it.  I also had him, but Shawn had Jameis Winston.

Colin 85
Voyten 55
Adam 105

We all had Ezekiel Elliott winning OROY.

Colin had Jalen Ramsey and I had Leonard Floyd winning Defensive Rookie of the year, which are both still possibilites.  Shawn had Shaq Lawson who is not.

Shawn and I both had Jordy Nelson as comeback player of the year, Colin had Andrew Luck.  I'd say it much more likely that Jordy wins that.  But, they are still available to Colin as well.

There are also 28 points of predictions still available.

Also, the Lombardi award, which has not been awarded yet, is still up for grabs.  The 4 finalists are Jonathan Allen, Lamar Jackson, Jabrill Peppers, and Myles Garrett.

That's 25 more points available to me and Shawn.

So, with all that being said, here are the maxium amount of points that each of us can still get.

Adam 158
Colin 133
Voyten 108

I'd say it's unlikely and nearly impossible that I get caught down the stretch.  I think Colin has a better shot than Shawn, just because Shawn and I have so many of the same predictions left.

Otherise, it appears Folden and Joe are very much still in the running for 3rd or even possibly 2nd.

Geiss & Rob sit in 6th and 7th, and although it's unliley to see them jump to the money, they both still have their Superbowl teams and AFC & NFC championship losers still there.  So, it's not out of the question to see them jump into the money if a lot of things go right for them.

That's all for this week.  Take 'er easy...If she's easy take 'er twice.

And, now we've come. To the End of the Road

So, another week and another bunch of point updates to do.  And, the NFL season has hit it's logical end.

A lot of predictions were finalized this week, but first we'll start with Professional Pick'em first.


I was able to get 14 of 16 to pass Geiss and finish in 1st in the pro pick'em.

What's even more surprising was Gary jumped up into a tie for 2nd with Geiss.  That means I won the 60 point bonus, and Gary and Geiss are splitting the 2nd and 3rd place points, which equal out to 30 points a piece for them.  Good season guys.

Also, Gary and I each earned  one more 5 point bonus for the last weekly pick'em bonus of the year.


Bowl Pick'em is looking like Shawn's to lose.  He has a 3 bowl lead with only 5 bowls left to play.  Eplin and Munez are in 2nd and 3rd, while Hale and Jim are in 4th.

The  6 NYE bowls are worth 5 points per prediction.  So, let's see what our totals are.

Shawn 56
Munez 53
Hale 48
Jim 48
Eplin 47
Geiss 44
Folden 43
Joe 42
Colin 40
Adam 39
Rob 36
Gary 35


So, lots of predictions to go over, but let's start with college first.

Alabama beat Washington and Clemson beat Ohio State to give us a rematch of last year's CFP final.
Joe and Rob are the only two who had both of these teams in the finals.  Both with Alabama winning it.

Colin and Folden and Gary had Clemson winning it. Me, Shawn, Munez, and Geiss also had Alabama winning it all.

Jim is out of it with Ohio State winning it, but does still have Alabama losing the National Championship.

Onto the NFL, let's start first with the finalized predictions we made of the stats leaders.

Receiving Yardage TY Hilton
Rushing Yards Zeke Elliott
Sacks Vic Beasley
Interceptions Casey Hayward

Folden was the only person to get any of these, when he picked Elliott.

Division Champions

Last night, KC won their game, while Oakland lost theirs.  This led to KC being the AFC West Champion, and scoring 15 points for everyone but Geiss, Hale, Eplin, and Shawn.

Colin, Eplin, and Gary all received 15 points for choosing Oakland in the AFC wildcard.  Surprisingly, those were the only Wildcard points that anyone got this year.  Noone had Detroit, the Giants, or Miami.

Mike McCoy was fired by San Diego last night,  this gave 15 points to everyone but Munez and Voyten.  The cut off for fired coaches is tonight at midnight, so there's still time for someone's sadness to make you happy.

Green Bay won last night, which gives everyone the NFC North Champion.

Finally,  the bears locked up the #3 pick in the draft.  This gave 15 points to Geiss and Eplin.


Pro Score -  There is a new number to signify our totals.  This is done to simplify things in the end.  The Total Pro Score will take the Predictions + Fantasy Football Score + Pro Pick'em Score (with the 60 point bonus for me and 30 for Geiss and Gary)


Colin 150 + 140+ 164=454
Rob 150 + 80 +154=384
Adam 135 + 70 + 230 =435
Folden 155 + 20 + 156=331Jim 135 + 100 + 138=373
Joe 135 + 120 + 164=419
Geiss 120 + 50 + 198=368
Hale 105 + 50+142=297
Voyten 105 + 90 + 153=348
Munez 105 + 60 + 156=321
Gary 105+ 80+ 198=383
Eplin 90+ 40 +156=286

Total overall Score

Pro Score + College Score+ Bowl Pick'em + Bonus

Colin 454+302+40+(20)=816
Adam 435+367+39+(85)=926

Munez 321+244+53+(5)=623
Hale 297+268+48+(5)=618
Eplin 286+214+47+(5)=

1 Adam 926
2 Shawn 825
3 Colin 816
4 Joe 805
5 Rob 754
6 Folden 749
7 Geiss 748
8 Gary 683
9 Jim 670
10 Munez 623
11 Hale 618
12 Eplin 552

Big Change since last week.  My lead has jumped to nearly 100 points over Shawn at 2nd.  Shawn has the lead in the Bowl Pick'em though, and can make a dent in the lead by next week.

Honestly, you guys all know what remaining predictions you have and can figure out what you need to happen to finish in the top 3.  It's probably  between Shawn and I now for the championship, but Joe and Colin still probably have an outside chance.

Happy New Year.  We'll talk later bitches.
