RazorPicks 2009 – Week 9 Results

An abbreviated version 🙂

Brick of the Week (BOTW)


Once again, a very good week for the contestants. Average correct picks was 7.25 out of 10. Not bad. However, there were a couple of games that were ripe for a BOTW award and two contestants feel suspect to one of those games. Kansas traveled to the empty plains of Lubbock where just a week earlier the Aggies had run roughshod all over the Red Raiders. So, a couple of individuals thought the Jayhawks would have the same type of success. Well, they forgot that Kansas can't run the ball. That combined with they couldn't throw the ball very well either, just spelled disaster. So, therefore, the BOTW goes to Mr. Ben "This pick wasn't for a basketball game??" Gilbert and Mr. Carroll "Not a big Mangino fan today" Walls. Sorry guys.

Pick of the week (POTW)


This is one of those odd weeks where there really wasn't a real cut this game was a massive upset and these contestants picked that upset. We didn't have one of those. However, we did have one game that ALL contestants picked and it was a razor thin win for the team picked by ALL contestants. Had the ball bounced the other way, the entire board may have gotten the BOTW. But as it is, everyone picked Bowden's Seminoles to win at home against the struggling Wolfpack from NC State. They did win, 45 – 42. Wow! Almost a BOTW for the entire board, but alas, you all get kuddos for being in cahoots on this one.

Champion of the Week (COTW)


This week, we have 6 contestants who correctly picked 9 of the 10 games. That is pretty amazing considering some of the games this week. Therefore, we once again went to the tie-break to determine our winner. One individual missed the tie-break game by picking USC and therefore is disqualified immediately. The other 5 were very similar in their final score predictions. Tie-break scores were 24, 24, 23, 20, and 15. Therefore, the winner for week 9 with a tie-break score of 15 and a final score prediction of 35 – 17 Oregon, was none other than Mr. Charles "Pizza Hut diet rocks!" Hopkins! Enjoy my friend.
