With his continuing streak of double-digit postings, it looks like this season is now mjp's to lose...

Two more participants have thrown in their towels. Flyin J's run at mjp is now a distant memory. Mark O's consecutive bests each of the past two weeks have managed to gain him only 4 games on our leader.

I never quit until I'm mathematically eliminated on any contest I'm in and even then I try to finish as high as possible. I guess I've always love the competition. 

You never know what might happen.

Holy packed field, Batman!

Every active participant had either 13 (B149, Tour) or 12 (rest of the field) correct this week. Just what the doctor ordered for mjp to put 1st place further out of reach.

Tick Tock...

With one week of full schedule left before Conference Championships begin, the proverbial "fat lady" may not yet be singing, but she's deep into her pregame vocal exercises.

Yup... Championship game week wraps it up with the Silver and Bronze still up for grabs. Gold? Not so much...

mjp wins the week... and with a 14-win margin over 2nd place, might be able to skip the last week.

Week 14 games are up... 16 of them. So to be safe mjp needs to pick three winners!

Maybe I better be careful I only win in odd numbered weeks, lol. 3, 5, 7, 9, 13.

Seriously there are some general strategies in these things (giving out my secret tips) I've been playing them for decades,  pick the early games early so you don't get shutout you can go back and change them or all 25 later....only one Friday game this week. Over time and even here with 25 teams numbers tend to even out like favorites/dogs look when you're done and count if you're WAY high on one side maybe you're too aggressive just look again.

The goal in these games is trying to beat .500 every week, generally if you're near .600 you'll win -but- if you're falling behind maybe get aggressive one week and see what happens......just general thinking or maybe my Econ undergraduate minor is finally  kicking in, Econ Stats how boring was that!

Good luck and GO BUCKEYES -5.5!

Yeah it does and an assist goes out to our now perennial #1 pick draft day darlings the CLEVELAND BROWNS for their help in making the NFL seem so EXCITING every Sunday.  :lol:
