Maybe this thing really is going to right down to the wire. Trends and info after the jump.

  • The Meddlesome Marmot took home this week's top honors by going 13/21 for the week, incorrectly picking Vanderbilt (+15) against Georgia, our Bears (+2.5) against USC, South Carolina (-5) against Kentucky, Ohio State (-4) over Wisconsin, Florida (-7.5) over Mississippi State, Arizona (-23.5) over Washington State, and Air Force (-1) over San Diego State.
  • This week's worst was moktagon, who only managed to get 6/21 right.  The only correct picks he managed to scrounge up were Michigan State (-7) over Illinois, Texas (+9.5) against Nebraska, Navy (-1.5) against SMU, BYU (+29) against TCU, North Carolina (-6.5) over Virginia, and Baylor (-1) over Colorado. Honorable mention goes to Masoli's Pawn Shop which only got 4 right, but only picked 16 games.
  • Only one person took USC (-2.5) against Cal. Oski4Heisman shall be summarily deported to Conquest Chronicles. Costs assessed to Twist.
  • Only four people incorrectly took Illinois (+7) against Michigan State.
  • Only eight people incorrectly took Minnesota (+5.5) against Purdue.  Again, why would anyone ever take Minnesota?
  • Only nine people incorrectly took Texas Tech (-3.5) against Oklahoma State.
  • Only thirteen people incorrectly took Syracuse (no line) against Pittsburgh.
  • Only four people correctly took San Diego State (+1) against Air Force.
  • Only six people correctly took Kentucky (+5) against South Carolina.
  • Only six people correctly took Wisconsin (+4) against Ohio State.
  • Only ten people correctly took Texas (+9.5) against Nebraska.

Riley for Heisman really needs to tighten up on D there. What's up with that?

Week_7-1_medium

Yellow Fever got Cameron Newtoned to the tune of 117-100 behind 47 points from the aforementioned Newton, and Robert Griffin was unable to keep up. And then of course, I apparently forgot Evan Royster was on a bye. Not like he would have helped much, I imagine.

Week_7-2_medium

The Pillowfight of the Week featured the Meddlesome Marmots defeating Berkeley's Finest (which seems very apt given last week's performance 78-53 almost entirely due to the performance of Jacquizz Rodgers, and to a lesser extent, the Florida defense. Might have been a good time to play either Jake Locker and/or Marcus Lattimore, although it's not like either was necessary this week.

Week_7-3_medium

Joe Starkey Sucks trampled Riley for Heisman 180-136 on the strength of a balanced attack with Dwight Dasher, DeMacro Murray, Malcolm Floyd, and the Boise State defense, in offsetting superlative performances from Zack Collaros and his two running backs.

Week_7-4_medium

atomsareenough dropped the hammer on 4ever Golden by a count of 149-99.5, behind Russell Wilson, Jermaine Kearse, and Ryan Broyles, while the power of Colin Kaepernick was not enough to offset a meager 8 receiving yards from Julio Jones.

Week_7-5_medium

Followers of Mohamed trampled Team Winner 138-73, even as the power of Denard Robinson seems to be waning. Brandon Powell and Justin Blackmon picked up the slack though, and that was more than enough to fight off Greg Kinne and Anthony Allen.


League 2

Week_7-6_medium

Look at Hydro making a charge up the standings!  Though that points for total is kinda weak there.  Time to go to the Blur offense.

Week_7-7_medium

Dirty Sanchez defeated the fighting philosophers in a surprisingly competitive matchup, which was really only competitive because of terrific performances from DeMarco Murray and the Clemson defense, which almost made it semi-competitive (but not really) against Robert Griffin, Shane Vereen, and Malcolm Floyd.

Week_7-8_medium

The highest scoring matchup in League 2 of the week saw the #1GreatestThreatToAmerica against Tedford's Sunshine Pumpers 149-137 by riding Landry Jones, Randall Cobb, Robert Woods, and the Oklahoma defense against Denard Robinson, Marcus Lattimore, and Greg Childs.  I'd have expected Noel Devine to do better, but them's the breaks.

Week_7-9_medium

born to longsnap snapped right by Godzilla Ballers 124-116.5 in a matchup that would have gone the other direction had Blaine Gabbert suited up for the Godzilla Ballers.  Then again, it wouldn't have even been close had born to longsnap activated Jake Locker, so, you know.  Goes both ways.

Week_7-10_medium

The absolute closest matchup of the week saw the Tongan Megathrusters slip by Clydesdales 97-95 behind reasonable performances from Jerrod Johnson, Kendall Hunter, Trent Richardson, and Ronald Johnson to get by Zack Collaros and Daniel Thomas.

Week_7-11_medium

HydroTech absolutely hammered Big BAM 171-100. Back on the schneid, Scootie!
