This week's winners will be zibby, Hokie Mark, and Statefan. What order they are in is pending the outcome of Sunday and Monday's games. Good luck to all. zibby is the only player that is guaranteed to post a winning record this week.

Given the late start (and the fact that we all - as in "me" -sucked so bad), this might be a good time to declare that this week was just a "shakedown cruise" to get the bugs out before the "real season" starts. 07-coffee3

Besides, more players may join in the fun next week - there are a lot of players from last year who didn't submit picks this week. The more, the merrier - right?

Wait, so I'm in the running to win this ONE week and you want to invalidate it?

J/K. But we didn't exactly cover ourselves in glory this week. I think I only have five right so far.

Starting to feel good about my FSU pick.
If it comes down to the tiebreaker, I'm hosed.

Now it is a 2 horse race. If UL wins tonight, zibby is our winner. If Ole Miss prevails, Statefan will tie zibby and prevail on the tie breaker. Hokie Mark will place or show depending on tonight's game. Either way only 2 players will finish with a winning record for the week. Fortunately, I will drop your worst week for the final tally. So everyone is in it still.

RE: Better late than never: ACC Pick em Contest
Congratulations to zibby and Statefan who both correctly picked 8 of this week's games. That tied them for first place, but we can't have 2 #1's, that would be 11. So using the tie breaker Congratulations to Statefan who made all his picks without regard to the line. zibby gets second place and we have a 3 way tie for 3rd place this week. Congrats to ken_d, Hokie Mark, and schmolik who correctly picked 7 correct each.

As a whole we were off to a rough start going 64-86 as a group. Don't open that BetMGM account just yet.

A special shout out to Chris Lords who correctly recorded the first 13 games after they were completed. On the two he actually predicted, he was 1-1. That gave him the second best winning percentage of the week.

I will be awarding the rep points within a day. Remember, we are dropping your worst week from the final tally, so everyone is still in this.
