RE: C-USA 2018 Football Elimination Contest
Three more of our CUSA elimination participants fell with Marshall. The rest of us just barely squeaked by with North Texas:

DWING: So. Miss, LA Tech, FAU, UTSA, FIU, UNT WKU
mturn017: Charlotte, LA Tech, FAU, UTSA, FIU, UNT UAB
Drunkard13: So Miss, LA Tech, FAU, UTSA, FIU, UNT UAB
L Upright: So Miss, MTSU, FAU, UTSA, FIU, UNT [pending]
Monarx: Charlotte, MTSU, FAU, UTSA, UAB, UNT WKU
Adopted Monarch: Charlotte, MTSU, FIU, So Miss, UAB, UNT WKU
CA2VA2NC: Charlotte, MTSU, FAU, So Miss, FIU, UNT WKU

I have sent Grommet a p.m., and hope all is okay. Next week’s picks are due by noon on Saturday, 10/13.

Thanks AM for taking over. All is well, just super slammed at work and posting on msg boards had to wait. Not quite ready to be back fulltime but it looks like the contest is in good hands. Carry on and thanks again!

It is worth our declaration of you as CAA elimination-contest champion!

Hell of a pick.

I'll take it. Such a powerful position. The contest was fun but. I still think I could have won. Doesn't everyone?

Post no. 201 updated. So far it is all Blazers and Toppers. Just now need L Upright's pick.

(For next season's contest, I will suggest to Grommet a rule change: last contestant in is required to pick ODU.)

And then there were two:

mturn017: Charlotte, LA Tech, FAU, UTSA, FIU, UNT UAB
Drunkard13: So Miss, LA Tech, FAU, UTSA, FIU, UNT UAB
L Upright: So Miss, MTSU, FAU, UTSA, FIU, UNT no pick
Monarx: Charlotte, MTSU, FAU, UTSA, UAB, UNT WKU
Adopted Monarch: Charlotte, MTSU, FIU, So Miss, UAB, UNT WKU
CA2VA2NC: Charlotte, MTSU, FAU, So Miss, FIU, UNT WKU

mturn and Drunkard both had the sense to bank with the Blazers instead of tank with the Toppers. (Sorry, I confess to being even more pathetic than Ted Alexander)

Well done, guys. The finish to this contest will be interesting.

Aside from week one, mturn and Drunkard have tracked each other's picks precisely. Since we're now down to just two, and since there plainly is an advantage to letting the other show his hand first, here's my suggestion for finishing off this contest:

You each should submit your future "official picks" to me via private message. I will reveal them on this thread only when both picks are in.

(You of course in the meantime are welcome to attempt to head-fake the other with publicly posted unofficial picks on this thread.)

I looked over the next couple of weeks schedules and I think I’ve got a plan. It’s gotten considerably more difficult with the teams remaining. Good luck Drunkard. I’ll submit my pick to AM.

Well since we’re only playing for bragging rights on an ODU message board I don’t think I want to be that guy. I don’t want to influence Drunkards choice though. I certainly wouldn’t encourage for him to be labeled a turncoat or traitor or anything like that for winning by choosing against the good guys. I’m just saying I wouldn’t want that asterisk on my record.

Good luck, MTurn. I'll do the same. As for me, I have no plan. Just taking it week by week. You'll probably win. 03-lmfao
