Yellow Fever is away this week, curing cancer, teaching Oregon fans to read, or doing whatever other charitable acts he does in his free time. In his absence, I will dutifully fill you in with everything that occurred in CGB Fantasy World over the past week. First we have our college pick 'em standings.
Overtaking Da (Other) Bears, bearbackers pics rides a strong Week 3 performance to the top of our charts. After the jump we have a breakdown of the pick 'em results, fantasy college recap, baseball, and, of course, some public shaming.
Highlights from this week's pick 'em:
- Cal Rose Bowl or Bust, px, aussie_picks, crazed fan, Bear_Territory, Punters Are People Too, Still No Stanfurdium (me!), 238 Evans Hall, 7-5 or bust, and Montezuma's Revenge should all be ashamed of themselves. They all picked Ohio State to cover the 17-point spread. I personally picked Ohio State as a reverse jinx, so I'm off the hook. The rest of you should hang your heads in shame.
- In none of the games were we unanimous with our picks. Actually, with several picks we were all in agreement except for Justin Bieber Rules. He picked every single FCS team to win. Not surprisingly, he also finished dead last in this week's results. Had he picked against those FCS teams, he would have finished in the top-20 this week. Not bad!
- 13 of 57 picked Stanford to cover the spread against USC. You know who you are.
- Sactown Golden Bear forgot about this week's picks and dropped from 4th to 56th.
