RazorPicks 2008 — Week 14 Results

And to get caught up….


Brick of the Week (BOTW)


Ok, so this week, we had some very good numbers considering our poor performance on week 13. Overall, the average number of correct picks was right at 7 out of 10. Much much better folks. However, as is always the case, we had some that stood out during the week for a lot of the wrong reasons. And boy did this one REALLY stick out this week. Some time at the beginning of the season this probably looked like a very reasonable pick. The pick of the Fresno Bulldogs going to the "blue field" and beating the lowly Broncos, was probably a good idea….in September. However, flash forward to November, and yeah, not so much. It even looked possible after a 13 – 10 lead by Boise at half. Then all Hades broke loose and Fresno ended up on the wrong end of a 48 – 0 second half. Yikes. Therefore, with his pick of the Bulldogs over the Broncos, the BOTW this week goes to Mr. Lance "Just call me Mr. Tuque" Willams. Sorry Gator.


Pick of the Week (POTW)


Well, it finally happened. And after last week, this individual is probably kicking themselves all the way to the field this week. They were an abysimal 3 – 7 last week and dropped them way back in the field. However, after the first perfect week of the year, this guy has leap-frogged all the way to within 2 games of the lead! IF only he would have done better last week. However, for the first perfect week of the 2008 College Pick-Em, the POTW goes to Mr. Gene "Just call me Mr. Perfecto" Strode. Good job bud!


Champion of the Week


And for those astute readers among us, you have probably already guess who would receive this award. For those not paying attention or reading every other line, then here we go again. The first perfect week in the 2008 College Pick-Em allows this individual to not only receive the POTW, but also makes him the COTW. Therefore, Week 14 COTW is none other than Mr. Gene "I called all those picks Chuck!" Strode. Congratulations.
