Alright, so it's been a crazy week, and I wasn't able to tally the results, so I'll get them to you next week. Deal?
...is what I've been saying for, I dunno, years or something.
BUT, all of that is about to change. Results for a few weeks have been tallied. Let's dig in.

It's fairly apparent that the lines for the Duke game were not very strong lines. The average was very nearly 4 points, not a good performance on my end with setting the lines. 10 users had perfect scores this week, further indication that this setter of lines needs a lot of work.
Ah, yes, that's more like it. A much less profitable week on these picks -- the average was over a full point lower, around a 2.8. There were no perfect scores, and only 3 people picked correctly against the spread. (That comes out to a sub-5% success rate on that question.) So, was Duke just a one-time thing, or would the Pitt game go back to high scores?
|dhbartlett||5||Fear the Bees||4|
|Atlanta's Original Team||4||reggieball||4|
The Pittsburgh game was somewhere in the middle, with an average score of 3.5 meaning higher scores across the board, but without any perfect scores. The worst was the question about pass attempts -- the Jackets were a lot more conservative than you thought they would be, and the question finished with a 34.6% success rate.
Ah, yes, the season leaderboard. Been a while since we've had one of these, eh? Do you remember who was in first the last time we did this, right before the Miami game? It was ClavinCliff, with a score of 20 points -- averaging 5 points per week. Let's have a look at where we're at now.
|Username||Weeks Participated||Total Score||Username||Weeks Participated||Total Score|
|Atlanta's Original Team||8||33||zetaman||7||28|
|Fear the Bees||7||30||CaliGT||6||26|
Well, as the saying goes, some things never change. ClavinCliff remains in the lead, though he has fallen below his 5 points per week mark he had previously set. He's trailed by Yeller Bug and JStew_GT, as well as Tyler Duke -- the staff leader. You can see that I'm way behind with 26 -- again, just showing that I'm bad at picking against my own lines. (Didn't Tony Montana have a quote about playing with your own lines or something?)
