Any one else in favor of dropping the UMass and Citadel games going forward? Would much rather pick competitive G5 games. Getting the UMass loss correct the remainder of the year won't drive differences in scoring.

Thanks! Glad you've been enjoying yourself.

The reason UMass and El Cid are included is because it's been kind of a tradition in the CoastalFans Pick 'Em to keep up with all of Coastal's non-conference opponents throughout the season. I will definitely consider making some changes to that tradition for next season, though (or this season if the majority of people really feel passionately about dropping them now).

However you guys like it is fine with me, but I do in general like the "bonus" games. This UMass game should be fun this particular week... Did you realize that the last time UConn won a game it was in 2019 against UMass, a 10-game losing streak. On the other hand, UMass also hasn't won a game since 2019, on a 16 game losing streak!

We might as well call that one the "Toilet Bowl" - Two crappy teams enter, one gets flushed!

RE: Sun Belt Pick 'Em
Before I get started...

PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A TUESDAY NIGHT GAME THIS COMING WEEK!

Make sure you get your picks in before that game kicks off if you can!

cotw must not have liked being tied for first place, because he pushed Benski6 right back down from atop the mountain of Pick 'Em supremacy in Week 6!

This week was rough for a lot of folks. There were three games - South Alabama @ Texas State, UConn @ UMass, and Buffalo @ Kent State - that more than half the field got wrong, and a fourth (Georgia Southern @ Troy) that was pretty close. Yet again we did not have anyone perfect on the week, but I'll give a quick shout-out to YOLO1 for being the closest to perfection, only missing by incorrectly picking Texas to beat Oklahoma.

Biggest rise of the week belongs to AppinSC, who rose 4 spots from 6th into a tie for 2nd. Biggest fall of the week was bodoyle, who fell 3 spots from 13th into a tie for 16th.

Here are everyone's picks from Week 06. And here's the current overall leaderboard after Week 06:

The following players need to submit picks this week in order to remain on the leaderboard: ChantsUp95

Please note that you can rejoin the contest at any time and your point total will not reset. I am just not going to include you in the overall leaderboard unless you are consistently making picks.

This week's picks are due by 7:00pm on 10/16/21. If you submit a pick for a game that has already started, you will automatically be given a loss for that game.

LOUISIANA FREAKIN' MONROE!

You know, I don't think anyone will be too sad about missing that pick this week since ULM beat Liberty. If there's one thing I think most Sun Belt fans can agree on, it's gotta be that it's always good to see Liberty lose a game. Congrats to the Warhawks on that win!

The other game that gave most players trouble this week was App/Lafayette, with just five players correctly picking that one. Congrats to those of you who got it right!

Several folks tied for biggest rise/biggest fall this week. Not too many changes on the leaderboard, either.

Here are everyone's picks from Week 07. And here's the current overall leaderboard after Week 07:

The following players need to submit picks this week in order to remain on the leaderboard: Appalachian, Original BDB

Please note that you can rejoin the contest at any time and your point total will not reset. I am just not going to include you in the overall leaderboard unless you are consistently making picks.

This week's picks are due by 7:00pm on 10/23/21. If you submit a pick for a game that has already started, you will automatically be given a loss for that game.

RE: Sun Belt Pick 'Em
Perfection is elusive.

As I was going through the standings this week, it occurred to me that this is probably the longest amount of time we have gone without someone having a perfect week in the Pick 'Em. In fact, cotw and Puddle Pirate are the only two players that have been perfect this season, and that was all the way back in Week 1.

Meathead, I was really rooting for you to have a perfect week this week. In fact, I looked at the Citadel/WCU result last because I was sure Citadel would have beaten the winless Catamounts. Unfortunately, El Cid found a way to ruin it for you (and for pretty much all of the rest of us), and we are once again without a Perfect Prognosticator.

That said, Meathead, congrats on using your great picks this week to have our Biggest Rise of the week - jumping 5 spots from 15th into 10th place. Biggest Fall of the week belongs to coastalalum, who falls 4 spots from 21st to 25th after failing to submit picks in Week 8.

Here are everyone's picks from Week 08. And here's the current overall leaderboard after Week 08:

This week's picks are due by 7:00pm on 10/30/21. If you submit a pick for a game that has already started, you will automatically be given a loss for that game.

Who would have ever thought Western Carolina would win a football game? LOL!
