What happened to last week's leader, Mission Marauders? Well, he, uh, forgot to enter any picks. Whoops.

  • 4ever Golden led the way this week with 18 correct picks; his only misfires were picking Georgia Tech (-14) to cover against Kansas, Florida State (+7) against Oklahoma State, Miami (+8.5) against Ohio State, and USC (-19.5) to cover against Virginia.
  • Wake Forest (-6) vs. Duke was a push.
  • Only four people correctly picked Kansas against Georgia Tech: Clydesdales, drub12, doug, and tbardhan.
  • Only five people picked Syracuse (+13.5) against Washington: me, Bear in PDX, atomsareenough, planetxerox, and 3-point conversion.
  • One person picked Colorado (+10) against our Bears - priamsposers.
  • Two people picked Montana State against Washington State - Swamphunter and Pyunny's Pirates. That they were wrong isn't really the point. That anyone would pick a FCS team against a FBS team at all is kinda sad.
  • Finally, six people incorrectly picked Tennesse (+12) against Oregon, six people correctly picked Virginia against USC, and nine people incorrectly picked UCLA (+6) against the Furd.

It's so nice to be 2-0 after scoring the fewest amount of points in the league. Not unlike the Broncos' 6-0 start last season, really. I'm sure it'll all go up in smoke soon enough.


Joe Starkey Sucks went down 117.25-116 to Your Hero behind a heroic effort from Robert Griffin. And when I say heroic, I mean he extinguished forest fires, built levees, stopped drunk drivers, and rescued six puppies from a tree. And that was just during halftime! Brandon Beall and DeMarco Murray weren't enough for our favorite closet Mack Brown lover.


atomsareenough pulverized Followers of Mohamed into atoms by a score of 181.5 to 120.75, but don't feel too bad for Followers of Mohamed - he was the lucky winner of the claim Denard Robinson sweepstakes. I know, I'm just as shocked as you are that he was still available after week one. atoms rode Jerrod Johnson, Kendall Hunter, and Jermaine Kearse for a total of 92 points.


Berkeley's Finest toppled Riley for Heisman 134.75-131.25 despite an injury-shortened performance from Case Keenum. It helped that literally every single one of his skill players managed to record a touchdown - even his tight end, who amassed a total of 2 receiving yards.


The Meddlesome Marmots mutilated ILikeMyFriedRiceWithExtraMSG 155-107.75. The Marmots got 36 points from erstwhile Heisman candidate Jake Locker and 24 points from supersub Trent Richardson, to go with steady performances from everyone else. Except his kicker, who recorded zero points. MSG was helped by John Clay and LaMichael James, but didn't get enough help from guys like Kai Forbath. Whose real life team sucked it.


The closest matchup of the weekend went to Team Winner, who slipped by 4Ever Golden 139.25-138. This week's uber-villain Colin Kaepernick was just short of being able to pull out the victory for 4Ever Golden despite recording 49 points, but he didn't get quite the support that Greg Kinne did from Jordan Todman and our sturdy Golden Bears defense. We're number one!

College Fantasy Football - League 2


Clearly Hydro's soft zone defenses aren't working out for his fantasy team.  Look at those points allowed! Time to start bring exotic blitzes from all over the place! Cover zero man coverages all day!


Dirty Sanchez beat Big BAM by a count of 128-107.5 behind the venerable Robert Griffin, Shane Vereen, and Jonathan Baldwin - Big BAM's efforts from Kyle Rudolph, Ryan Broyles, and the Iowa defense were for naught.


Tedford's Sunshine Pumpers whipped Clydesdales 128-77.25, as John Brantley decided not to suck a fat one this week and managed a reasonably positive contribution this week. Which is more than can be said for four of Clydesdales' players. Could have used those 22 points from the WR position is all I'm saying.


born to longsnap beat #1GreatestThreatToAmerica 112.75-89.25 riding the rocket arm of Ryan Mallett and a superlative effort from the Nebraska defense past a weak effort from B.J. Daniels and a bye week from Jacquizz Rodgers. While Landry Jones put up 37 points from #1GreatestThreatToAmerica's bench.


The Tongan Megathrusters thrusted their way past the Godzilla Ballers 115.5-106.25 behind Trent Richardson and Kendall Hunter, offsetting an anemic performance from Nick Foles. Taylor Potts put up 27 points and was helped by 25 points from John Clay for the Ballers, but they got little help elsewhere.


HydroTech apparently didn't realize Isiah Pead is still out, as he lost 96.25-86.5 to the fighting philosophers. Hydro's WRs combined for a total of 210 receiving yards, 12 rushing yards and three touchdowns, which would be great if Jermaine Kearse didn't account for 179 of those receiving yards and all three touchdowns by himself.
