    oh ok Creek -- it was showing earlier this a.m.

    I didn't want anyone to have ten points on it :)

    Well....I'm in the 5 spot and just want to say that before this week because.... looking at the slate.....I'm not confident that a downward move isn't in the cards. Hopefully I'm not the only one feeling that way...tough week of picks.
    Lots of 50/50, 60/40 games IMO

    Sorry....I'm #6.....GoBurntO.
    Must have dropped one after all the games were completed and I had looked. lol....Big12 refs running the contest this year.

    Whoever does great this week ..and this year for that matter....will have earned it.

    Man....You guys must of had a rough week. I had a terrible one...
    ...and rose 2 spots.
    It was a tough slate to begin with and only 8 games left little room for error.

    I only got twenty points this week so I'm at 69.2 percent. Last year, I finished at 92 percent so I'm not doing well at all.

    Looks like the "covid year" must be affecting your performance ;)

    Best of luck to you the rest of the way

    Biggest thing that gets me with the contests like this one is trying to get too cute with the moves on confidence points precisely because it is still picks straight up...I'm far more accustomed to picking against a spread for actual money.

    The only thing I'm involved with that actually requires me to pick a winner straight up is the Circa Survivor...Indy killed me in week one on one of the two entries, while the other is still live going to Week 7 (~353 of 1390 remaining).

    There are nuances to the game. This week is really gonna be interesting. Badass you got 7 weeks and we are gunning for ya-lol.

    Unique thing with Circa's contest is that Thanksgiving Day is its own week...so if you got to that day and had nobody left, you are cooked. After six weeks, it is so 2020 that Detroit could be a viable play against Houston LOL! The Dallas game will be Round 2 of WFT vs WTF (Round 1 is this weekend). That leaves PIT and BAL. But...there are still some weeks between now and then...

    This week is going to be very difficult. With the Big 10 starting up, I have no clue how those teams are going to perform! Mountain West teams are the same. Like week 1 all over again.

    This week I got 52 points, jumped from 69.2 percent to 90 percent. Not bad. I missed on the Purdue game. What was I thinking?!

    Went to bed in 4th and woke up in 7th without even missing another game.
    A few of you made strong push with pts on late games.
    Real nice race in top 8 or so!

    This weeks picks gonna shake it up more. If you thought last weeks picks were hard, you ain’t seen nothin yet. Plus there are 11 games.

    ??? I'm only seeing ten games plus the usual tie-break of 'pick the score.'
