From the Rumble Seat's Weekend Selections, Week 9

Only five ACC games this week means we're digging deep into the national slate of games.

Grant Halverson

First off, I'd like to apologize for the fiasco that was last week's Selections. I try not to make mistakes that impact all of you, but in this case I failed you. To make up for any issues resulting from my poor scheduling abilities, two things are happening. First, everyone who played is getting credit for the Virginia Tech-Pittsburgh game on Thursday night, as there were picks submitted Friday throughout the day that should not have had an advantage over those submitted before the game. Additionally, we'll drop each player's lowest score, meaning it's not a problem if you didn't get picks in for Week 8.

Well, now that we have that behind us, I owe you results for the last two weeks. Shall we?

A bad week for me (only 10 points), a good week for most of you. Your leaders for Week 7 were users yellowman and [NSFW], with a strong 16 points each. (I hope you're happy, yellowman, because you're also the only contestant who picked Duke to win.) Leading the staff was MagnaCarterGT with 13, followed closely by Ben with 12. LVPs of the week were RamblinGamblinEngineer and...Fear the Bees? Wait, before that, Fear the Bees was one of the top players in this contest. At his rate of production, he would've been tied for 7th right now. Oh well, this is an ACC Blog, I suppose. So a big #goacc to you, Fear the Bees. You and RamblinGamblinEngineer only had 6 points.

Here you see the adjusted results from last weekend, for those who did play. (Again, if you didn't, no worries.) greg_t was your MVP, even though I'm guessing he really messed this up. How did he mess this up? By not putting down actual money, I'm guessing. Because if he had, he would've been correct straight up AND against the spread in 7 of 10 games. Oh well, so much for real money! Staff MVP this week was Atlanta's Original Team with 15, followed by Grant with 14. I came in at 13, especially bitter about the corrections made because I would've gained some ground off of a correct Pittsburgh pick. Oh, and hey Fear the Bees! Looks like your one week blemish was in true ACC spirit -- you were back in midseason form this week with a solid 13 as well. LVP of the week was GTsam97, who was looking for a lot of upsets but didn't find them, finishing with 7 points.

NEW LEADER ALERT: After a few rough weeks kenneth bonner, your leader for a majority of the season, has fallen into second place behind your new leader, ITPatlien. Just know though, ITPatlien, that though you may be inside a perimeter, your lead is not safe. You still have kenneth bonner hot on your tail, along with the cavalry of ClavinCliff, CaliGT, LxUn1c0, and eekanerd. The current staff leader is YOURS TRULY (although Atlanta's original team has me beaten on a points-per-week basis), and bringing up the rear are Matt Mills, Tyler Duke, and Grant Heffley.

Now that all of that's out of the way, let's get to this weekend's selections. Get to picking, and good luck!
