P-F10: Week 8 NCAA Bonus Results - Choose Your Own Bonus Question

This week's NCAA bonus question was part Choose Your Own Adventure and part Why Do I Have To Come Up With All The Content?!

WEEK 8 NCAA BONUS QUESTION: Here is your big chance. Submit your own NCAA related bonus question. I may use it in an upcoming week. (0-10 points)

I'm going to score these based on my opinion, but at the end I'll let you guys vote for the question you'd like to see for next week (you can't vote for your own). My absolute favorites aren't going to score many point, but they were definitely the "I'm busy" or blank answers. Yep, that's pretty much the way I feel on Wednesday night, 4 beers in, at midnight when someone emails me to remind me that I haven't posted the card yet... but I know what I signed up for.

ANo, Northmen: Why do you think UGA is so darn cute? ;-)
I'm not surprised with this submission. You guys should know that she's never picked against Georgia. I don't know what they are ATS, but hopefully for Amanda's sake they are over .500. 
+7 (She said that if I didn't give her 10, then I'd be showing favoritism (or the opposite?). Maybe she won't read this :)

GN, Fements-A-Lot: Here is your big chance. Submit your own NCAA related bonus question. I may use it in an upcoming week.
Haha! Get it?
+6

KW, The Swinging Richards: Multiple Choice -
Why does Corso insist on shaking around that unsharpened pencil?
A)  He has Bob Dole hand.
B)  He has an obsession holding coated wood with rubber on the end.
C)  While he understands that magic isn't real, he still dreams of becoming Merlin or Dumbledore.
D)  It's really shank, he's dealing to kids at Gameday.
E)  Other______________________________________
Super strong. I don't know why I lean toward the one with wood and rubber in it.
+9

DW, Bevo XIV: If you were a top high school recruit and had offers from every school in the nation, where would you commit and why.  You cannot commit to any university you attended.
Very thought provoking. I can't wait to find out which SEC school all our SEC alums pick :)
+9

KH, Smokey's Bandits: Who is the absolute WORST college football announcer and why?  And what is the absolute WORST college football pre-game, in-game, or post-game segment and why?  (e.g., Dr. Lou, Judge Reece, Griese Spoon, etc.)
I like this question, but I know the league, and like no one besides RK and DW will answer this. CJ will say something nasty instead. KS will mention Erin Andrews, kolaches, donkeys, or something that includes all of them. ANo will tell me that the question sucks and wonder why I didn't pick something about mascots. And wait a minute, are you trying to say that Dr. Lou is not pure genius?!?!?
+7

WH, The Cheerios: In which college football personality's house would you most like to hide a dirty diaper? (player, coach, announcer, reporter, tv host, etc.)
This question got the hamster in my head spastically running in his little wheel.
+9

KS, Large Donkey Circus: Donkey pulled wooden cart or Sooner Schooner, discuss.
I approve.
+6

JH, Nothing to Lose: Who will win the Big 12?
Baylor, next? How about, who is better: The Big 12 or the SEC? :)
+6

CCo, Beelzebubbles: If you could design the perfect cheerleader outfit for your alma mater what would it look like? Please feel free to use words like ruching and tucking.
This question is insensitive, because the Aggies aren't into female cheerleaders.
+7

CG, 13 National Championships: What cheerleaders are hotter than cheerleaders that wear chaps?
This is a trick question, because it is universally known that cheerleaders with chaps on are just about the greatest thing invented since the football itself.
+6

JB, Pimp Possee: Who will have more national championships over the next 10 years?
1. USC Trojans
2. Florida Gators
3. Alabama Crimson Tide
4. Tennessee Volunteer women's basketball team
I would have to Google the women's basketball results. Just saying.
+6

JN, Naked Bootleggers: College Gameday is visiting your favorite campus.  How do you make sure that Lee Corso does not make it to the stage?
Haha! Like.
+10

MN, Football is Fun: Who is the greatest college football player of all-time:  Earl Campbell, Ricky Williams or Vince Young?
Tough choice man. Tough choice.
+6

ANe, Accidental Champs: Which school will maintain their current BCS ranking? (could also ask which school will move up or down in the rankings)
I like the up/down idea. I think I've done a "movers and shakers" version before. I might figure how to work this in.
+8

RK, BlitzKrieg: Matt Millen was unquestionably the worst executive in NFL history.  It now appears that ABC/ESPN is positioning him and his equally awful partner, Sean McDonough, as the number two broadcast team for Saturday football.  I cannot think of a worse broadcasting scenario than McDonough and Millen doing the A game every Saturday.  What is your nightmare college football broadcasting scenario?
Trick question. The McDonough/Millen pair is the worst. Period.
+7

MF, One Man Wolfpack: Should preseason polls not exist until  week 4 or 5?
If there is a playoff, I don't care. For the polls that matter, they probably shouldn't.
+6 for answer (+4 because I left this out of my original post and had to be reminded by Mike that I fkd up).

Lo, WhooDat4Life: Okay guys here is a weird one, which state will have the most winning teams next weekend...Texas, Florida or Alabama?
I like it, but do I have to do the tally?
+7

AP, Gig'em: Which tradition is better? Squeezing your balls or whooping in like an injured animal?
Nah, that was not right... I made that up. Anu's real question was:
What tastes better: Bat guano or squirrel jerky?
Dude, sorry guys. That was me again. Anu's really real question was:
Sexier icon: Corps guy, the Sarge guy, or that dog?
Damnit, seriously guys, this is Anu's for really realz question:
Pick 2 or 3 games that will start at the same time and ask which team will score the first touchdown out of all the 2 or 3 games. If the team you picked scores before it's opponent, you get 2 points...if your team scores before all the other teams out of the 2 or 3 games, you get 5 points.
This is actually kind of a cool question, but it would be pretty hard for me to keep tabs, since I'm usually drinking, wrestling little kids, or drinking while wrestling little kids while watching college football.
+7

KZ, CCa, GF, A-C, DC, DD, JM: No answer, er question.
+0
F ME, NOW VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE.

P-F10: Week 8 NFL Results

(last updated 10/26/10 6:48 PM)

BREAKING FAVRE NEWS THIS MORNING

Brett confirms leaving the phone messages for Sterger (makes sense, umm, I could hear his voice).
Brett denies sending inappropriate pictures to Sterger (he has a point, I have no idea what his dong really looks like. That could have been a dong double).

NOT BREAKING NEWS

Bevo XIV is putting a hurting on the league.



Point summaries for Week 8:
The Northmen (ANo) picked Colt McCoy to lead the Cowboy-like Browns over Pittsburgh last week, but didn't pick them to beat the Saints. If she had, she wold have been the weekly winner. Just saying.

Bevo XIV (DW) extends his lead by another point this week. That's +4 on the nearest competitor folks. Apparently I reverse jinxed Novacain last week ("Novacain (CCa) extended his deficit to -16 on the leader"), because CCa filed a 10 of 14 NFL card and dug himself out of last place. Beelzebubbles is your new Cowboys, errrr I mean last place team.


Weekly Stats:

Weekly Winner(s): ANo, GN, DW, WH, KZ, CCa (!!) +3 bonus points
NFL dubs (12+): None  +3 bonus points
Bonus Question: Against the spread pick. Dallas Cowboys -3.5 or NY Giants +3.5?

13, that is the number of correct picks from our winner, WhooDat4Life (Lo). 13 also happens to be the amount of National Championships that 'Bama claims. And 13 may be how many they are claiming next year, that is if Auburn has anything to say about it.

P-F10: Week 7 NFL Bonus Results: Favre-Aid


BONUS QUESTION: Reports suggest that Favre's dong shots may cost him $100M in endorsements. Got any suggestions for potential a future revenue source?
 
I really don’t think there are any winners in the Brett Favre dong-gate. If you don’t agree, maybe you haven’t seen the pictures. I won’t be posting them here, but you can find them on Deadspin.

Pat yourselves on the back for that. Bevo XIV (DW) extended his lead to +3 on the competition. Novacain (CCa) extended his deficit to -16 on the leader.

Did you hear the one about the Cornhusker beating the Longhorn? Me either. Maybe we'll have a story to tell this evening.

So, so sad.

When I preface this picture with "I don't want to kick someone when they are down," what I really mean is the opposite. Apparently Zazzle lets you edit other people's t-shirt designs.

Leaderboard:
I just clicked on the scorecard link and took a look at KW's picks... you guys are fkd.


Some Live Game Watching Thoughts:
11:14AM - Holy sh!t. There is (almost) literally no one at the Baylor/Tech game at the Cotton Bowl. Well done Lubbock and Waco. TV is wisely showing field-only shots or really tight shots of the stands. They just flashed an un-focused crowd shot... like, if I squint my eyes it looks like there are twice as many people (50 maybe).
11:20AM - The announcers are calling Robert Griffin "RG3." I don't know why that bothers me, but it does.
11:25AM - Baylor-Texas Tech: "It is like one big cage match of small dudes looking to prove themselves." I stole that off the internets. Funny.
11:29AM - How about some SEC news... this is the first time since 1906 when Tennessee and Georgia enter this game where both team have losing records. Whoa.
11:33AM - Tech tries on on-sides kick, it doesn't go 10 yards, Red Raider players stare at it, Baylor dude picks the ball up and runs it into the endzone. Huge mental fail. Huge coaching fail. I will find a video of this for the weekly wrap-up.
UPDATE: Found it.

11:52AM - Jim Knox just interviewed a pig, and the pig said "eeeerrrrrrraaaaaallooooossssseeeerrrrr." At least that's my phonetic pig translation.
"The Pig Whisperer" is a better nickname than "Ball sweat guy"
12:47PM - Week 6 Card halftime scores:
1-4 Georgia kicking some Vol arse, 27-7
Tech and Baylor are playing video games, Tech 35-28 (o/u on this game is 64... almost covered in 1st half!)
Why did I pick Penn St. -7.5!?, Illinoisians 20-13
1:05PM - Post lunch... 2nd half of morning games... nap time. Out.
2:56PM - Twos and twos of people witness the Red Raiders beat the worst team in the Big XII South. I woke up and caught the end.
3:00PM - What's next? Six afternoon games on the card are on TV right now. I have 4 TVs in the living room and a laptop. Watching Ark/tamu (sound), Pitt/ND, UCLA/Cal, Bama/USC, and Mich St/Mich (laptop). Life is good right now. I've got the Arkys -5.5 on FLV. Oink Oink mthrfkrs.
3:10PM - Wow, there are a lot of girls in the Jerryworld stands that, ummm, wear pants.
3:15PM - Tuned the aggy game off the main TV. South Carolina 14, Bama 3. I'm not rooting against Bama, but there is an instant interest whenever a #1 is behind on the scoreboard. If my pick was based on who I want to win, the Old Ball Coach or Saban, I'm all in for the OBC.
3:55PM - Not on the card, but... Louisville rings Memphis' Belle. The game was Louisville -16.5. Final score: Louisville 56, Memphis 0. Oye.
4:20PM - Note to self, find youtube video of Stephen Garcia running the throw-the-ball-out-of-the-back-of-the-end-zone drill. Bizarre.
4:48PM - There is a pretty good looking coed with a Michigan State jersey on in the stands... with a football jersey meant for shoulder pads on. The official stance on of Pickem-Football.com on shoulder pads for women is "oh hell no sisters."
4:57PM - Holy crap my picks suck today.
5:38PM - The video below is called "Ugly Ass Michigan Fan." That is really mean, but uhhh, seriously, is there a better name? Maybe "Zombies have in fact invaded Michigan Stadium"


6:00PM - Greg McElroy's streak ends. I'm actually kind of glad we're past that.
6:20PM - "I've got the Arkys -5.5 on FLV. Oink Oink mthrfkrs." WIN!
6:34PM - Next FLV wager... I'm not going to say Go Gatah or anything, but I have LSU @ Florida, Under 42.5. That's a statement of what I think of both offenses, not both defenses.9:11PM - Aaaaaaaand, with 14:06 still left on the clock, there goes my bet on the under. It may be fake money, but I feel like a LOSER right now.

9:55PM - Holy. Crap. LSU.

Point summaries for Week 6:
I'm not saying the scores were really low this week (avg=5). I'm just saying the scores think this font is HUGE.

(updated 10/7/10 9:21 AM)
I just realized I left this post in draft status all week. Anyway, I've got some videos.

Angry defensive backs try to make Jordan Shipley's head explode. That hit was so hard Shipley probably forgot to call Colt Sunday night after the game.


The Giants had like 10 sacks last week (I think... I don't really do a lot of homework for TWTW). After one of them, we got the new football celebration dance sensation, the "don't tase me bro."

The Weekend That Was - NCAA Edition (October 2, 2010)

The rumors of me dying from a shetland pony accident are greatly exaggerated. 

Stuff from the weekend.

Texas is out of the Top 25 for the first time since October 2000. Over a decade old streak... gone. There, I said it.

Texas Tech got throttled by Iowa State this weekend?! I'm nervous about Texas playing Iowa State now.

I wasn't big on Oregon, mostly because I hate their uniforms and it's hard to take a duck seriously. From the looks of the polls (Oregon is now 3rd in both polls), Boise and TCU are on the outside looking in unless tOSU and Oregon both lose. Fk the BCS anyway. (I just want you guys to know where I stand.)

Air Force is ranked... that's cool and stuff. You know what isn't cool? The fact Air Force is not "The Jets"!!! I'll never understand.

Who is the most overrated team in the polls right now? I say LSU. What say you?

Best catch of the week.

Leaderboard:
Will KW's reign end? Is it too early for a jinx? Probably.



Point summaries for Week 5:
Once again, this week was a terrible week for scoring... and I'm not talking about on the football field... or whatever you guys may do in your spare time. Last week's average score was around 6.  This week we improved by 1 pick. Texas offensive coordinator Greg Davis might be able to score more points.

I suppose what really matters is relative performance, and based on that criteria, KW still doing relatively well. His Swinging Richards are picking 60% against the spread. Check that. That's better than relatively good.

The biggest gainers of the week were The Nine-Five (A-C) and Pimp Possee (JB) who each gained 12 spots on the Leaderboard. The biggest loser was Bevo XIV who, based on an email, is aware how bad his prognostications for Week 5 were. Like 4 of 15 bad.

Fading Las Vegas:
I use my real money on beer (for me) and day care (for the kids). Below are my virtual FLV bankroll bets for this Week 5.
  1. Tennessee +16.5 @ LSU: $350.00 - LSU's offense + the game being played during the day = no way LSU was going to cover. UT 14, LSU 16. WIN!!
  2. Tennessee/LSU Under 43.5: $150.00 - Again, there is no way LSU or Tennessee puts that many points on the board (see above). WIN!!
  3. Wisconsin -2 @ Michigan St.: $150.00 - I broke my ban of betting on the schizophrenic Badgers for this no brainer. Wisconsin is pretty good. But wait, they fkd me. Cheese 24, Mich St 34. LOSS!
  4. Oklahoma/Texas Under 47.5: $150.00 - For emotional reasons, I don't like to bet on the game, but it seems like this is a lot of points for a horrible Texas offense and a mediocre okie offense to score. However, Texas tried to come back at the end and lost me this bet with their final FG (game total = 48!). Blah. loss.
