A strong performance this week from fuzzybee86, as well as smathis93 and RamblinVak! In a week of some pretty crazy games, these folks were on point with their selections. Bravo to you.
Staff MVP this week, with a major breakout performance, was Tyler Duke! He outperformed everyone else on staff, although Ben Tankersley and I were hot on his tail with 13. LVP this week was also the staff LVP, none other than the Duff'd It! king himself, MagnaCarterGT, whose score of 6 was the low-water mark of the week. In lieu of breaking out a joke that's really the lowest-hanging of fruit, I'll tell you that his 6 points included two correct picks against the spread, meaning that there were 6 games where he incorrectly selected both the spread and outright winner! (I'll let you fill in the blank here with a "clever" joke.)

If I told you that a tie for the lead was broken this week, who would you guess was the former co-leader? If you guessed anyone in the top 5, surprise! You're wrong. Yes, in one week, ClavinCliff went from tied for the lead to 5 points back and in 6th place...this is a game that really takes no prisoners! No, this week CaliGT took an outright one point lead on the back of a 14-point performance, although ITPatlien's 15 points put them into a tie with Buddy Smiggins for second place! They enjoy a three-point lead over kenneth bonner and packerman, who are currently tied for fourth.
In staff news, AOT had a rough week and I had a pretty good one, giving me sole possession of first place on the staff! (Even though AOT continues to lead on points per week...) On the back of his big week, Tyler Duke is no longer in last place among the staff -- or at least not by himself. He's worked his way into a tie with Grant and MagnaCarterGT, who are all only two points behind Ben Tankersley. The plot continues to thicken!

This Week's Picks
Apologies for lateness, blah blah blah...
Huge game Thursday night, as Duke's best chance to lose the rest of this season happens when they host a dangerous North Carolina team coming off of a 40-35 win over Pittsburgh. Why should you care? If you don't know by now, it's that a Duke loss this week or next week sends Georgia Tech to the ACC Championship Game. Only problem with that is that next week they play a terrible Wake Forest team, so if it's happening, this week is the week!
Get to picking, and make it quick! All picks are due by kickoff of TONIGHT'S Kansas State-West Virginia game!
