yeah a lot of straight upsets not even considering points. Just when I thought I was prime to have a break out week. Only thing I’m breaking is my surface tablet Tom Brady style!horse

Think this could be a crazy week, seems like most games could go either way. Gonna be hard to break the 50%.

Looks like the honeymoon is over. Getting crushed this week. Hoping for some miracle come backs in the 2nd half of a bunch of games.

Week 7 picks will put us half way through the season. Still time to turn it around. Better look out I will be deploying a new strategy to try to get above 50% accuracy!!!

I've got a foolproof plan. Make my usual picks, then flip them all opposite. Can't lose

I assume the tiebreaker questions come into play somehow.

I think when the dust settles, Gumby and I will be tied for first with mjrburn 1 or 2 games behind depending on if Washington States beats the spread.

3rd to 6th place send to one and 7th thru 10th to the other? Depending if my calculations are correct. It gets funky when the add Fridays games to the overall and then also include them in the weekly total. It makes it look weird until the final tally is done.

I'm working shift at the PD today so give me some time and we'll work the details out. I normally go by the placement that the standings on the front-page state but if you guys wanna do something to "Fix" the tie issue, I'm perfectly fine with that.

This is the winning format I've been going by the last few seasons when we have had at least 10 players.


1st. Keep ante and receives 6 Ante

2nd. Keeps Ante and receives 1 Ante

3rd. Keeps Ante....

Think you should do keep ante for one more spot because 3rd is tied also.
1st 3
1st 3
3rd keep
3rd keep

Thank you for the contest again buddy!! If was a fun one, for sure.

Gumby’s suggestion sounds good to me.

Overall….this was a blast again this year. Who would have thought that it would have come down to the last week and been this close. Doing this contest makes the season so much more exciting to watch. Thanks for putting this together!!!!

Agreed. Much appreciation, Chris. Much less appreciation to all of the teams that did not bend to my will
