    Well, we're 10 weeks and 200 picks in, and only one person (who has picked regularly) has gotten over 60%. We've had a fairly impressive 94 members play all 10 weeks, so I'm pretty happy with that participation and hope it will be even higher next season. A couple of members have done pretty well even missing weeks, most notably AugustaGator, who has hit 100 picks despite not playing Week 1 for some inexcusable reason. Even more impressively, NCOGator has hit 96 while skipping TWO weeks, a damn impressive 59.6% rate. Had he actually bothered to play those two weeks he'd be right in the thick of this thing. As it's structured, no one who skips weeks is going to be able to contend for the grand prize unless they have the run of the century. If you want to win it all, PLAY.

    A bunch of people started and quit throughout the season because they just couldn't hack it. You can scroll down and see who these people are and seek them out for ridicule. g8orbill, GR8 2B, and Swamped Gator were having excellent seasons and were right in this thing and all three didn't play in Week 10. Were they all drunk? Impossible to say, but they flushed their shot at the prize down the john.

    For those who think 515151 has this wrapped up, you couldn't be more wrong. First off, he's going to blow it down the stretch, we all know that and so does he. Also, keep in mind there are still close to 100 games left: 60 regular season games, the conference championship games, and ALL the bowl games - this thing doesn't end until the BCS Championship game. There will be prizes for at least the Top 5 and possibly Top 10, so don't think it's a winner-take-all thing.

    As for records, the most picked in a week so far is 18, and the worst (while picking a full slate) is 4. The member with the fewest amount of picked games who has played all 200 is Back Alley Gator with 84 (42%). We still love you, man. However, the worst picker who has played at least 100 is Himey, with a 39.4% pick rate. Ouch.

    Discuss.

      Either 9 or 10 the last 6 straight weeks. At least I’m consistent! :deadnanner:

          Most impressive by 515151 is no losing week yet. Everyone else in the top 5 has at least 2 losing weeks.

            Playing pick em every week is a constant reminder to me why my gambling career was such short lived.

                Tied for #48 with like 10 others.
                :headbang:
                Is that page 2?
                I was on page 5 after week 2 as I had to make my picks for that week before the spreads were known as I was going camping, put me in a hole.

                Bart incredibly finished dead last in Week 2 and won Week 10. What a turnaround!

                  After Sam16's incredible record-setting 18 out of 20, he's hit 14 of 40 since. :facepalm:

                  It’ll be double that by the end of the year.

                    I'm quite confident he won't be winning this thing.

                      Yes, the same. If you want to quit because you think it's hopeless, then do it. That's what we've come to expect from you.

                      I’ve played every week I ain’t quitting. I’m a realist and don’t live in fairytale. Unless he quits picking, he’s got this. Heck he may take a week off just to build the suspense.

                        I wake up at 3 AM on Saturday nights to to go to the bathroom and have to check the ESPN college football scoreboard on my iPhone to see who won the Pac -12 games. It's pretty bad when you actually know the names of the starting quarterback for teams like Colorado. Before I started playing the Pick 'Em Contest the only thing I knew about the University of Colorado was that it was in Boulder and it had a big live buffalo mascot. Yeah, Ole Ralphie who when he comes out of chute it looks like they are not going to get him corralled until he crosses the Wyoming state line. Between Pick 'EM and my enlarged prostate I'm up half the night on Fridays and Saturdays and don't get much sleep anymore. I'm way back in the pack with some other derelicts like me but I'm not quitting. My only advice is to just to say be nice to people on your way up the list because you're likely to meet again on your way down.

                          Dude, if he lands a 7 (which is easily possible against the spread), and one of the other leaders lands a reasonable 11 or 12, that's 4 or 5 gain in ONE WEEK. There are 100 games left! You really are on dope if you think that's insurmountable.

                          The moment he gets passed in the standings I'm giving you a vacation.

                            Well you have the power to do whatever you like, but unless you stop him from picking each week, he’s taking this.

                            You had better hope so, for your sake.

                            I'm glad the other players aren't worshiping at the altar of 515151.
