If true, I suppose that's a valid enough reason.  Maybe.

 

  • Week 9 was steeped in mediocrity, as we had nine people tied for the week's best at 11/21. 11/21! What the hell!?!? These people were moving screen, moktagon, It must not be named, Don Draper's Dick, Bear in PDX, Fightin' 42's, beer territory, tbardhan, and drub12. Kudos to them.

     

  • Northwestern (-3) over Indiana was a push.
  • Only five people (correctly) took Oregon State (-2.5) against our Bears. These were Fightin' 42's, priamsposers, 3-point conversion, Dwinellian Nightmare, and Masoli's Pawn Shop.
  • Only four people correctly took UCLA (+9) against Arizona.
  • Only four people correctly took Air Force (+7) against Utah.
  • Only seven people correctly took Tennessee (+17.5) against South Carolina.
  • Only seven people correctly took Syracuse (pick) against Cincinnati.
  • Only ten people correctly took Tulsa (+8.5) against Notre Dame.
  • Only ten people correctly took Arizona State (-21) against Washington State.
  • Only eight people incorrectly took Georgia (-2.5) against Florida.
  • Only eight people incorrectly took USC (+7) against Oregon.
This week was a big bucket full of fail.

Oh noes, my stranglehold on first in the West division has slipped away!

Week_9-1_medium

Berkeley's Finest defeated Yellow Fever 138-136 as I did my best Ron Washington impersonation by forgetting to employ a kicker. See? I'm Ron Washington and Justin Kahut was my Neftali Feliz?

Week_9-2_medium

Riley for Heisman triumphed over ILikeMyFriedRiceWithExtraMSG 166-123 behind Kellen Moore and Jeff Fuller (quick, can you name who he plays for?) as well as a superlative performance from the Ohio State defense. MSG's Heisman-worthy duo of Cameron Newton and LaMichael James combined for 73 points, but got zero from Vai Taua and two from Jonathan Baldwin. Yeah.

Week_9-3_medium

The Meddlesome Marmots crushed Team Winner 135-76 even on a down week for Taylor Martinez mostly because three of Team Winner's players didn't record a point. Not that swapping out his players for those on his bench would have made a difference, as Marcus Lattimore and Jacquizz Rodgers combined for 62 points by themselves for the Marmots.

Week_9-4_medium

Followers of Mohamed defeated 4Ever Golden by a count of 91-84 behind 39 points from Bryant Moniz and the flyin' Hawaiian spread offense, but not much else.  But man, look at that bench! 90 points combined from Denard Robinson and Lance Dunbar! I think a lineup change might be in order.

Week_9-5_medium

atomsareenough got by Joe Starkey Sucks 147-129 to claim a share of first behind Russell Wilson and Ryan Broyles. Starkey got decent games out of most of his players, but with no single performance of over 21 points, victory was not to be had on this day.


League 2

Week_9-6_medium

Damn that's a small picture. Anyway, what you need to know is that our man Hydro...let's just say his playoff chances aren't looking too good.

Week_9-7_medium

born to longsnap pulverized HydroTech 144-90 behind Jeff Maehl, Dan Persa, and LaMichael James. Hydro countered with Cam Newton and Jacquizz Rodgers, but was asleep at the wheel again as Evan Royster put up 27 points in his first sign of life this year. It wouldn't have made the difference, but it would have looked much more respectable.

Week_9-8_medium

Ok, Tedford's Sunshine Pumpers really pulverized Godzilla Ballers 136-56 in the most lopsided result of the year in either league. The sad part is that Godzilla Ballers fielded a mostly complete team...they just decided to all suck at the same time, which wasn't a good idea against Terrelle Pryor, Marcus Lattimore, and the Arizona defense. And Denard Robinson's on the bench here too! What are you people thinking!?!?

Week_9-9_medium

Last week was one of big blowouts, as Dirty Sanchez rolled by Clydesdales 110-47 behind Robert Griffin,Malcolm Floyd, and the Ohio State defense, which was (shockingly) enough to get by a team with an inactive QB, RB, and kicker.

Week_9-10_medium

Big BAM continues her playoff push 97-72 over the fighting philosophers mostly on the strength of the Iowa defense and Ryan Broyles, which was enough to get by the biggest deadbeat in either league.

Week_9-11_medium

The Tongan Megathrusters managed to thrust past #1GreatestThreatToAmerica 130-107 despite not getting any points out of their starting quarterback - a situation that was replicated on the other side as GreatestThreat didn't get any points out of the #1 RB.
