So, after a week's absence, I'm back! Apologies for missing last week. I was busy kissing hands and shaking babies at the career fair on behalf of the people that pay me for my day job, and I really appreciate Grant filling in for me. Before we get started, I don't only owe you results from last week, but also from the week prior to that. So with that being said, here is your Week 2 Leaderboard.

Congratulations to rarmijo3, who only missed on one winner and one spread! The week's LVP pains me too much to say, in a couple of ways, so I won't. If your name isn't in the table above, head on over to the results and check them out. Found here: link. For reference, the average this week was a shade over 13 points.
Oh! Then we all got back from Tulane, re-calibrated, and had another round last week. Let's look at how that went...

So...maybe we should have all stayed in New Orleans. Even with an extra pick offered, the weekly average dropped over a point to about 11.75. Additionally, of the 11 games we picked, 5 had average scores under 1, which I believe was more than the first two weeks combined. (College football had a weird week. It happens.) The MVP this time only had 17, and a lot of our staff had a rough go of it. Of the 12 users that had fewer than 10 points, 4 were staff members. I blame Grant, who actually did a great job filling in last week. If you're not on the above table and want to know where you fell, in the mix, check out the comprehensive score sheet, found here: link.
As for cumulative scores to date...that's a lot of work. (I actually realized that I may need to adjust scoring for Week 1.) Let me get back to you on that one next week.
This week's selections are below. The rules are the same as they have been all season, but have been developed more to be more to include another scenario I wasn't considering. Best of luck, and happy picking!
Picks are due by kickoff of the Georgia Tech-Virginia Tech game, at noon on Saturday.
