Week 1 Thoughts, League Results

Recap time... since Gary kicked it off, let's start with his (surprisingly good) observations from week 1.

(Gary is in blue)

What have we learned this first week.

USC is legit.

Ok... not profound, but you are just getting warmed up... but, pretty good call... USC is on top of the polls now.

This will not be South Carolina's breakout year

Maybe Vandy will lick Smelley's Gamecocks tonight. I follow the SEC (in that SEC fan won't stop talking about his conference), but when is this elevated expectation of the *other* USC going to finally silence?

ACC still sucks. Maybe worse than the Big Eas(y)t
Good observation.

Tennessee still will only play for one half of a game
Oh man... not more SEC talk... well as long as that is all we are going to do.

LSU is no Michigan
What the sec?! Ok... True... LSU *is* no Michigan... Michigan has a reputation for academics too.

Louisville vs Kentucky was not a Sunday primetime game. Wasn't even close to a Thursday game or even a DirectTV college sports package. Maybe ESPN thought it was a basketball game.
This is an SEC talk freebie... you made a funny. But you know what else is funny? Fat guys running at full speed.

Texas A&M...... Do we really need to say anything about that?
Yes we do... and I found just the quote, courtesy of an article in The Sporting News

From Coach Sherman:
“I’ve been doing this long enough to know … that I have complete confidence in how we do things, what we’re doing, the manner in which we do them,” Sherman said. “I have no doubt we will win. When that is exactly, I can’t pinpoint, but I know for a fact it will happen.”
He's not sure when it will happen, but sometime he will get a win. That's a promise y'all.

Michigan gets smacked by another spread offense. Didn't they learn last year?
...and it couldn't have happened to a better guy in coach Rich Rod. Speaking of good things happening to good people, apparently someone put some holes in a blow-u football and a basketball player.

USC and Missouri proved that they belong in the top 10. What about the rest?
*sigh* I have got to apologize to you guys. My sloppiness has totally mislead you. You see, this is why I should proof my work. *This* is why a little self-editing is important. I've been careless and if you guys want to bail now it's cool.

Gary, that statement above is confusing and mostly meaningless. I don't know what I was thinking telling people to put away their Garynese dictionaries.

Soooo.... Anyone still up for some stats?

  • Week 1 Winner: JM - Jimmy's Team (12), +1 or more over the field
  • Doubles: KH (11), DW, CC, KS, GF, CG (11), A-C, JG (12), JC
  • NCAA Pick'em Leader: JM - Jimmy's Team (12), pretty straight forward
  • Break down of Week 1 Bonuses: Early Bird - 1, GOW - 1, Best Bets - 3 (KH, DW, JH, RK, JG), Weekly Winner - 3

  • coming week 2

  • No prize here, only pride: JM - Jimmy's Team (12), Dude, you are leading everything!
  • Double Doubles: N/A

Early bird deadline is before the NFL kickoff on Thursday night. If you forget, don't forget to send me your card anyway. Just don't give me some "the dog ate my homework" excuse.

P-F21: Week 10 NFL Bonus - Baseball is over, now what?

Losing baseball season isn’t like losing football, but it can still be a difficult event for some. While we are deprived of baseball season’s physical presence, we can still reconcile -- you know what, we’ll figure it out. Below are some ways you are honoring the memory or just moving right along. Sleep Astros! (AP): “Go to sleep on time during the week!” (3)  -- apparently you aren’t into MACtion Beelzebubbles (CC): “Now I can get some decent sleep during the work week” (3) More time for football 18 National Championships (CG): “Plenty of football and golf” (2) Bite a Kneecap Offs (RK): “MACtion!” (4) -- yes!

P-F21: Week 7 NFL Bonus: Best news of the year!

It’s a mad world. Let’s parse out some good. Everyone gets POSITIVE bonus scores! (One thing though. I forgot to add “in the NFL” to my bonus question, but maybe you guys behaved yourselves) A Northmen (AN): “Brittney's dad will no longer be her conservator! #freebritney” She went on with a bunch of crap about TSwift, but I’ll spare you. On Brit, of course, she should have the right the fk up her life. That’s great news! +4 T-Horns (AM): “Matt Jones developing earlier than expected.” Wait, are we talking about Mac Jones? +2? Astros! (AP): “OU/Texas coming to the SEC!” This is great news. See what happened is Texas got in OU’s head, then Texas “Trojan Horsed” their themselves in the SEC, where Texas will then ruin the SEC from the inside. +3 Buddy the Chimp (BC): “Bananas.” Buddy, you get bananas all the time. Dream bigger. +3 Cornholio's Bunghole (BO): “Just destroying America is not enough for Joe Biden, so he destroyed Afghanistan. I wonder what country will be ne

1 I once watched this planetarium show on dark matter. I’m familiar with matter. I’m not saying current or future me could define it, but it is like -- stuff. However dark matter isn’t the dark stuff. Dark matter is like all the other stuff that we aren’t familiar with, and on top of that, apparently the universe contains an unknown amount of matter that we cannot observe! 2 Speaking of matter, small wins matter. Not only do small wins add up to major accomplishments, but small wins have also been shown to give enormous emotional boosts. (I think you see where I am going with this.) 3 Enough said. I am ready to sign up at 3, and I am ready to fill out the registration form . 4 Each year we play 4 games that are guaranteed to keep your weekends interesting from the end of August until mid-February. 5 Game #1: NCAA Pick’em (played against the spread) 15 games per week Games will list a point spread for you to pick against Contest represents approximately 1/3 of the registration pot; Both
