P-F12: Week 5 NFL Results

updated 10/2/12 11:02 AM Refs are back! SCORECARD If you were going to forget your NFL picks, this may have been the week. Three of you guys rode BlitzKrieg's coattails to a 7/15 week. The league averaged 10/15. Collectively, we are picking 59% straight up through the season. The weekend primetime games were a stumbling block for picking, but continue to be good games for NBC and ESPN. The Pick'em surprise of the week (12% correct) was St. Louis fieldgoaling the Seahawks to death (avoids the whole simultaneous possession issue). 2012 Week 5 NFL Card (v1.0) - Scorecard BONUS POINT EXPLANATION Here is how bonus points were tallied. Weekly Winners = 3pts. DCo, JBe, AP (12/15 picks) Double Digit Card (12+) = 3pts. DCo, JBe, AP Paid Entry Fee = 1pt/wk. GN, DW, CCo, CG, MN, JC, AP (new, thanks!) , KP, DD, Lo (new, thanks!) , DT (new, thanks!) , JHu, ANe MNF Props = 1pt each. I'm just saying guys, I GAVE YOU THE FREAKING ANSWER TO THE RO

P-F12: Week 4 NFL Results

updated 9/26/12 2:23 PM Look people, how about we lay off the refs. Oh, I don't mean we should layoff the refs.I'm just saying that we all make mistakes. Just like back when Michael Vick switched to dog fighting because it turned out cock fighting wasn't what he thought it was. Don't hate. Celebrate. And don't just celebrate. Do the Pee Wee. Better now? NFL SCOREBOARD 9/16 correct picks got the job done this week. You can blame the rest on the Vikings and the refs. If I was a Viking, my name would be Godfred the Ruthless. True story . If I was a ref, I bet it would be Ed. We have some new #1s. BlitzKrieg (RK), Pimp Possee (JBe), and Double D (DD). The 64% straight up is still less than Bevo XIV (DW) is doing on the ATS college side. As a league we picked 46% this week. Ugh. That brings our cumulative average down to 57%. 2012 Week 4 NFL Card (v1.0) - Scorecard BONUS POINT EXPLANATION Here is how bonus points were ta

I don't have a lot of time today. I'm just going to tell it the way it is. Next question. NCAA SCOREBOARD We had a three headed weekly winner this week: RK, CCa, and DT. The winners picked 10/15 correct. Bevo XIV (DW) is on top overall for the 3rd straight week. He's picking 65% ATS. We picked a respectable 49% ATS this week. We are picking 49% ATS for the year. 2012 Week 4 NCAA Card (v1.0) - Scorecard BONUS POINT EXPLANATION Here is how bonus points were tallied. Weekly Winners = 3pts.

updated 9/18/12 1:58PM Complaining about the refs is the new Tebow was the new Brett Farve was the... If TV and radio announcers can't stop talking about it, can Goodell get us some replacements? NFL SCOREBOARD First, an administrative item. I had a mistake on the card. I failed to recognize the St. Louis Cardinal move and flubbed up the Rams game with the 'skins. Everyone selected Washington except BlitzKrieg. Kentucky Wildmen first alerted me of the error, and despite several emails back and forth from my phone, I never hit the computer and fixed it. BlitzKrieg found the problem again later, alerted me, and correctly selected Washington's opponent. Since I have no idea if my mistake was to blame for you guys all picking Washington, I've give you all the pick. To compensate BlitzKrieg for his correct pick, I've given him 3 bonus points. Kentucky Wildmen emailed me about the problem, and still picked the game wrong. For the effort though, I've gi

Schadenfreude of the Week: Matt Barkley will finish 0-4 in his career vs. Stanford. Your weekend had to be better. NCAA SCOREBOARD I won the week with 12/15 correct. "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO."  "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO." Yes, but Bevo XIV (DW) still leads the league with 31 total points. Dude is picking 69% against the spread after 45 games. Amazing sprint out of the gate. As a whole, we picked 45% ATS this week. We are picking 49% ATS for the year. 2012 Week 3 NCAA Card (v1.0) - Scorecard BONUS POINT EXPLANATION Here is how bonus points were tallied.

NFL Bonus: Two MNF games. For it? Against it?

Unlike the tailgate intensity question, there is no wrong answer here, only weak efforts. The For Its 14 National Championships (CG) : Love it. Wifee, not so much. Double up, come up for my bets lost on Saturday and Sunday. (+3, double up, like) A Northmen (ANo) : For it... you can't ever get enough football yo! (+3, yo) AccidentChild (MN) : For it. Why not? (+2, seriously) Beelzebubbles (CCo) : Always for! I can switch during commercials and never feel football empty. (+2, football empty is a terrible feeling) Ferments-A-Lot (GN) : Does The Man really like it? I'm for anything that irritates The Man. (+2) Bevo XIV (DW) : For it. It's one fewer game that I can't watch on Sunday due to regional and TV distribution limitations, and the west coast gets a bone. We're only about 5 years away from one or two games a night each weeknight with all 4 (plus cable) networks chipping in billions for the rights to one or two days a week. (+3, it's always

NFL Bonus: Why are NFL tailgates so much more intense than college tailgates?

Intensity level may be subjective, but what intensity actually means is not disputable. Intensity is extreme, not just big, exciting, serious, or loud. Intensity is extremely big and extremely serious. NFL tailgates are more intense. Here is what you guys said. The "Yes, I agree" group: A Northmen (ANo) : Because there are old men fighting to be young again, more company sponsored tailgates, and college kids don't have any money. Agreed (+4) Beelzebubbles (CCo) : Well speaking from experience. My child asked for money to pitch in to rent an RV to ride from Tuscaloosa to Dallas this past weekend I told her haaiilllllllll no! I am not dishing out all this dough for you to party it up in Dallas! Soooooo I, however, will sell a kidney to get to a Dallas game this year. THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! (+5) Bevo XIV (DW) : Two different animals: College - More people from out of town - More diverse fan group (students, families, drunkards) - More diverse par

NCAA Bonus: AT&T Gets the Longhorn Network. What do you do?

AUSTIN – Just forty-eight hours before the season kicked off for the Texas Longhorns, ESPN and AT&T U-verse announced a deal that brings the Longhorn Network to an additional 600,000 homes (roughly 599,950 more homes than previously in the "footprint"). The network is a 20-year, $300 million partnership between ESPN and Texas athletics that is even paying dividends on the academic side .  Viewable or not, the Longhorn Network is next level media. But what do the sharp sport minds in leagues such as Pickem Dash Football think of  the AT&T deal? "PEW! Pew Pew Pew Peeeeewwwwww!!"

P-F12: Week 2 NCAA Results

NFL + NCAA = FAN CLAN = CAN FLAN I don't know. It's good. I know that. NCAA PICK'EM CONTEST It wasn't a good day for Big 12 defectors. Nebraska lost to unranked UCLA. Colorado lost to Sacramento State. Missouri lost to Georgia. And Texas A&M lost to Florida. Those last three were on their home fields. I don't know if this made any of your days sweeter, but #8 Arkansas losing to LA-Mo at home, leading to the 2nd biggest fall in the AP Top 25 in history was icing on top of a well decorated college football Saturday cake. Speaking of good days. Bevo XIV (DW) had a good week with 13/15 correct picks. But that's not all. DW has sprinted out of the gate with two consecutive double digit cards. Kentucky Wildmen (GF) also is 2 for 2 on double digit NCAA cards. Like, so jeal. How was your week? SCORECARD: 2012 Week 2 NCAA Card (v1.0) - Scorecard         LEADERBOARD:       BONUS PO

What is the statute of limitations on National Championships?

So I think most people that follow any media source has seen this linked, Texas A&M is now a 3x National Champion, and likewise raised their Big 12 title ring count by 200% to 3 .  How does this happen? The photo tells it all (before up, after below). I won't rehash the semantics of the two National Titles (read the above article, Harvard has some claims to one of them).  I'm sure Alabama wholeheartedly endorses these, as Pre-Hitler titles now total six for the two schools (hey, that's more than Texas, that's cool).  The SEC will probably adjust their total (for current schools) to further their world domination argument. The conference title grab is laughable (also in the above article, but worth repeating).  The 1997 Big XII title includes the "Conference Title Game" in which Nebraska defeated them "54-15" (was 40-3 after 3 quarters).  So I guess the title game was more of a mere inconvenience as all participants get to claim titles.

P-F12: Week 1 Results, My Observations

The bad thing about attending games in person, especially night games, is that you don't really get to watch any other game. I caught about 10 minutes of the 8:00AM Notre Dame/Navy game, then drove out of town, tailgated all day, went to the game, tailgated some more, then went to bed. The good thing is that I have the interwebs, I've checked out all the box scores, and I think I figured out what happened.
