    Way to go UCF. Nothing like throwing away the game at the end to a 0-6 team.:bang:

    Only Red Dawg, Miss Kitty, and SJ (by default due to his home team rule) picked UAB. I thought all UAB does is heart surgery and kidney transplants, not football? 87.5% of us picked UCF.:dunno:

    EDIT: cnestg8r pointed out that DD also picked UAB. So that's 83% of us who lost.

    Red Dawg, DD, and Smiling JOe are undefeated going into tonight. I, for one, have ZERO wins. That's why my siggy is an "F" for failboat and "F" for UF and "F" for my name. :bang:

    Most people's choice of picks sucked in these first 4 games except for SJ's and Scooterbug's. Everyone else was pathetic. Hoping to make up some ground tomorrow. This might be my first negative week.

    For the total group, we average 41% correct with a average 9 pt spread. Maybe we should just flip coins.

    The point spreads meant absolutely nothing in the UCF game, they had a 15 pt. spread, and West Va. had a 13 1/2 pt spread and got totally destroyed by Syracuse. I'm banking on several games to turn things around for me tomorrow.

    Lady D, you are right about the point spreads.

    Smiling JOe is 4 for 4. I am 0 for 4, as are familyof3, Buz, Shallowsnole, and 1ToshFan. :bang:

    EDIT: As of 1:55 CDT, the following are winning 7 out of 11 games finished or in progress:
    Red Dawg, FL Dawg, DD, Skunky, Pearls, STL Don, BeachSiO2, kurt, Everytime, and Smiling JOe.

    EDIT: As of 2:35 CDT the following have 9 wins: Pearls, STL Don, Everytime (based on unfinished game scores).

    EDIT: Leading for this week with 11 games completed as of 3:30 CDT is Lady D with 8 wins.

    LSU is kicking butt over Auburn, big time.

    I think Fulmer4Senate should be in the group of those winning 7 out of 11 as of 1:55 p.m. I think.

    Lady D is winning by 10 out of 13 right now.

    I have Fulmer4Senate at 9 out of 13 right now. Is that right, Lady D?

    BR, that is correct, he is 9 of 13. Hope Penn State and SMU can win. At least one of them anyway. Would hate to miss the last two. C'mon SMU.

    Lady D has 11 wins. Only So. Miss. vs SMU is not final. Lady D picked SMU. If So. Miss. wins, she will be in a big pack of 11 wins.

    I will be in a pack of 9 wins. :bang:

    Yeah, well, I don't think SMU is going to win this one. They usually have a good team. So it looks like a 10 out of 11 for me today. Way better than the 1-3 between Thursday and Friday. 9 is above 500, if I can stay above that week to week I'm good.

    Congrats to Lady D, Skunky, FL Dawg, cnestg8r, PearlsB4U, STL Don, and kurt for 11 wins!

    Red Dawg is by himself in first place. Total list of rankings will be posted later by cnestg8r. It's 12:46 AM on Monday for him, so he has a few more hours to sleep.

    Thanks for the Excel spreadsheet. It is interesting to see how everyone did and to see the rankings. Next week can you add a column for the previous week's ranking for each player?

    Ready for week 9 now. I'm enjoying this, especially since I have had no losing weeks.
