College Pick'em 2019

Recommended Posts

Well with 10 weeks in and just 5 weeks left to go Mr Woodman has opened up a rather large but not insurmountable lead in TBB COLLEGE PICKEM yearly contest..  Opening up with a rather hard to do 10 team parlay.....and trying to make Woody feel worse for whacking us so badly with his 19 win, 19-6 (76%) weekly performance which would have probably won many Vegas Handicappers Contests here is what you "coulda" won if you put just $100 on your first 10 or later 5 teamer.  (For $10 or $1 bets just move the decimal back 1 place each.) We really hope you feel bad now.   :lol:

Oh and second place with a fine16 was TGZ and 15 browns149 and flyinJ.   That's 4 weekly wins and if Woody can equal his 19 wins which only last year's champ did once since I've been here. back to back 19 he can coast to the 2019 championship......but not yet !!..... Oh the 10 teamer stuff:

And so you did with a 17...

... but even more importantly I finally won a frickin' week...also with a 17... difference being I had a handful of 16s on my tail.

Also have to note Woody's posting of a new high watermark of 19 in Week 10 which was also a season high 3 clear of the field.

He also leads the field with 4 Weekly wins. Interestingly both the 2nd and 3rd place... and until this week 4th as well... have never won a week.

With 3 weeks to go Woody's 6 win lead looks formidable.out of reach for all save jrb.

And yes the "Tour de force" pulled through with a strong finish to win WEEK 12.  I thought for sure Woody was going to win it and pull away from the pack.  Actually a pretty good week for everyone with just three weeks left in the 2019 NCAA PICKEM.

Don't worry besides one was a push anyhow -BUT-  I'm 99.99% sure you picked PSU. No matter what you couldn't have beat ballpeen anyway with 15 in a tough week with the underdogs going 14-10-1.  And Woody increased his lead by one with two weeks to go.

So how did Woody get this lead? Look closely I immediately saw he had scores of 9 10 11 12(2) 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 that's a consistent year.  So what's that mean? He's due for a 20 or an 8 so it ain't over yet !         Good luck everyone !

lol I didn't get 4 picks in and extended my lead

 

I did have PSU to cover. But that was because I thought KJ Hamler would have some big plays, not because OSU would fumble.

8 game lead for Woody. With 1 week left  Unlike UM, Woody should win this

This is Mr Woody's year here he has been consistent all year it is very much his tournament to win.  And jrb has a good hold on second with only third place up for grabs.

Good luck in week 15 everyone !

So you'd think...

Eight pick lead with only 10 picks on the board... story time....

 

Once upon a time on the east side of Cleveland a fellow ChemE student we'll call Larry.... 'cause that was his name... went into our NewMeth (Numerical Methods) final with a solid "A"... and posted a 7.... out of 100...

So much for "solid"...

Well I don't know if Woody is mathematically inclined but if he can go 3-7 he can lock out jrb from any shot at first place and that's if jrb goes 10-0.  If I were a betting man, well we know how that goes. Woody has a very good chance to finish off the three-peat attempt of the current defending champion.

So there you go......oh I see he has his picks already this week "good idea there Woody".   :lol:

Good luck everyone in the WEEK 15 finale.

Care to bet on that?  ;)

.......I'll give you 10/1 that no way you don't get 3 right plus jrb doesn't go 10-0.
