RE: ACC Pickem 2019 Week 7
With the 12:00 games in the books, it looks like panite has taken a commanding lead. This week, there were only two games where neither team was picked by at least 80% of the field - NC State and Temple - and panite got both of them correct.

The key from here on out will probably be the Baylor - Texas Tech game. If Baylor wins, two of the three closest pursuers currently 1 game behind will be knocked out of contention. That would leave samandrea who needs Houston to beat Cincinnati to earn a tie.

This one could be settled early.

It could turn on Minnesota / Nebraska as well.

Well called. I expected Maryland to kick Purdue while they were down and instead they got drubbed.

If I'm reading it right, panite has at least a tie locked up. All contenders picked Penn State. Panite has 10 wins. He picked Wake Forest, Notre Dame and Minnesota. Lenvillecards has 8 wins and picked Louisville, Notre Dame and Nebraska, while Indytarheel has 8 wins and chose Louisville, USC and Minnesota. So one or the other, but not both, still have a chance to tie.

Texas Tech's failure to seal the deal cost you and Statefan.

Yeah, that was not great. Most any hope of getting to a bowl is done. One of those times where I didn't want to be right.

Don't know if you saw the end of that game but Statefan and I were hosed by the Big 12 officials in the first possession of overtime on the 2nd snap the Baylor center snapped the ball off of his right hunker and Tech recovered. The camera showed it was a fumble (like a snap on the ground) and the official watching the game said it was a fumble but the Big 12 crew called it a miss snap and penalized Baylor 5 yards. To be a miss snap the ball cant pass through the centers legs and onto the ground, which it obviously did. Then the officials refused to review the call, even though a fumble immediately covered by the opposing team can be reviewed with stoppage of play. It cost Tech the game.

Now I'm not protesting the outcome of this competition, just lamenting how bad officiating is becoming. I've seen some horrendous game altering missed calls this year out of the PAC, Big 12 and ACC officiating crews and more than few missed calls by the SEC crews though they didn't end in a change of possession or a game ending play. This was the worst, and obviously the worst, officiating mistake I've seen this year.

Thinking back to your earlier post lamenting the uneven (to be charitable) officiating in the NC State - Syracuse game, I was going to make the same observation about the entire weekend. This seems to be a problem across all conferences. Which makes me wonder whether the use of instant replay has had the unintended consequence of weakening officiating across the board.

I'm sure it has disrupted the flow of the game, and often interfered with the momentum of drives, giving unfair advantage in many cases to teams that haven't earned it.

Enough already!

RE: ACC Pickem 2019 Week 7
Congratulations to panite, whose 13 correct picks edged out two time defending champion Buckminster Fuller, XLance and zibby who rang the bell 12 times each.

Even though he didn't win this week, that performance by Buckminster Fuller was good enough to vault him into a tie with CollegeCard with a .714 winning percentage for the season.

I'll post more detailed results later this afternoon.

What gets me is now that we have replay they don't always choose to use it, especially in an game outcome altering call, and when they do use it they opine over the angles seemingly looking for the one that will give them the predetermined outcome they are looking for, or their interpretation of the rule slides depending upon the circumstances. And letting a call on the field stand when there isn't enough proof is reasonable but it has led to some unreasonable initial calls on the field. I feel sometimes the only people truly utilizing replay are the ones managing the betting line.

RE: ACC Pickem 2019 Week 7
In addition to panite and the second place finishers, a number of other players correctly picked 11 games - a sharp contrast by last week's performance. They were CollegeCard, copycat, HokieMark, Indytarheel, Lenvillecards, samandrea and Statefan.

With the season at the halfway point, the new standings in the season race look like this.

.714 Buckminster Fuller
.714 CollegeCard
.705 TexanMark
.686 Statefan
.676 esayem
.676 Lenvillecards
.667 JRsec
.667 XLance
.657 copycat
.656 TyBull

So far, 18 players have earned rep points in the contest. They are:

10 Buckminster Fuller
9 CollegeCard
8 esayem
8 Statefan
7 TexanMark
6 JRsec
6 TyBull
5 TerryD
5 XLance
4 copycat
3 Garrettabc
3 georgia_tech_swagger
3 IHAVETRIED
3 panite
3 zibby
2 Indytarheel
1 orange_in_VA
1 Shannon Panther

Just an observation: In each of the 7 weeks to date, the weekly winner has outperformed the betting favorites. And, as has been the case for as many years as I have data, the season winner has also outperformed favorites.

My takeaway from that is that, whether you you are trying to protect a lead or to gain ground on the leaders, you're going to have to pick some of the upsets that inevitably occur every week. As we get near the traditional November chaos this will likely be even more true. So there's plenty of time to make up ground. In the past, leaders have been known to give up as many as 5 games in a single bad week. Take heart, players. You can still do this - the game isn't over by a long shot.

I'm three behind the leaders, but I don't see myself making it up.
