Hey, look at who's there in fourth!

  • Mallrat92204 crushed it this week, going 16/21 and far outdistancing everyone else in the league, as the next best pickers were at 13/21. Mallrat92204's only incorrect picks were Syracuse (-1) over Rutgers, Navy (-3) against Air Force, Baylor (-3.5) over Kansas State, TCU (-13) against SMU, and Nebraska (+9.5) against Wisconsin.
  • ManBearColts and Montezuma's Revenge tied for the worst performance of the week by getting an abysmal 5/21 games right.  Ugh.
  • moving screen only went 6/21! That's how you go from first to out of the top ten.
  • Only three people correctly took Kansas State (+3.5) against Baylor. Likewise, only five people took SMU (+13) against TCU. Poor TCU.
  • Only ten people picked Northwestern (+8) against Illinois.
  • Twelve people incorrectly took UCLA (+20.5) against the Furd. Though, really, I was hoping both would find a way to lose. Much like the Syracuse/Rutgers game was for most of the day.

Suck It Starkey is back on the schneid. This is most definitely my favorite theme of the season.
Week_5-1_medium
I Hate Everyone fell due to the incompetence of its own manager, as A. Jenkins of Illinois went off for 44 points while Tavon Austin came up with only 67 yards. Come on, man! At any rate, Team 5 somehow pulled out a victory 134-120 behind strong performances from Greg Kinne, Lance Dunbar, and the I-thought-he-was-injured-so-I-picked-up-Zack-Ertz-Coby-Fleener. Ugh. Double ugh.
Week_5-2_medium
Loser's Lurgy continues to lose as they went down 127-91 to Team America. The Lurgy got a more representative output from its wide receiving corps (though still nothing terribly noteworthy), but this time only came up with 20 points from its running backs, including the normally reliable Marcus Lattimore. Nick Foles went off for 39 points to go with decent complementary numbers from Michael Dyer and Chris Polk.
Week_5-3_medium
Suck it Starkey had the misfortune of playing the highest scoring team in the league once again, falling 188-150. Robert Griffin was his usual ridiculous self, and Trent Richardson, Kenny Wright, and the Oklahoma defense all put up 30+ point performances each. Bryant Moniz went for 40 points and Robert Woods for 37, but Starkey was one superstar performance short.
Week_5-4_medium
Lobsterback Bisque roasted WhoLovesOrangeSoda 160-110 behind Landry Jones and Ray Graham. Orange Soda got a combined 81 points from Dominique Davis, Doug Martin, and the LSU defense, but a total of 21 points from all of his other backs and receivers. That's not going to get it done.
Week_5-5_medium
atoms will crush you failed in its mission, falling to born2longsnap 126-110. Denard Robinson was his usual magical self, and Stepfan (sp?) Taylor had a decent 23 points, but born2longsnap got strong efforts from its receivers as well as the Alabama defense to pull out the victory.
Week_5-6_medium

Team Marshall found itself with a victory over Big BAM 112-105 thanks to 11 points from its tight end, kicker, and defense/special teams. Oh wait, that should read, no thanks to its tight end, kicker, and defense/special teams. Big BAM got 33 points from its shiny new QB Case Keenum, but got little otherwise, with Vick Ballard going for a mere two points and Juron Criner only putting up eight points himself.
