Winner sits around 55-57 wins each year. That’s basically 3 every week, plus a few 4 win weeks. Cannot have losing weeks, simple as that unless you can string together 4-5 win weeks. I started last year with 7 straight losing weeks somehow. My worst year overall.

2011: 42-41-2
2012: 47-36-2
2013: 35-42-3
2014: 50-35-0
2015: 42-42-1
2016: No comment

Let’s get 50 this year…

Update: It was my best year since I’ve started doing this. Can’t complain, fell apart toward end unfortunately. I got a little nervous, then Week 17 was away and didn’t put much into it. Just 13-17 in final 6 weeks. That’s poor and unfortunate…

16.3-2, 43-35-2
17.4-1, 47-36-2

Basically 57.6%. Not bad.
Winner had 56-26-3. Last money position had 52-33.
I had 48 points, that’s 4 wins off of Top 20.
Finished in Top 100 out of 700-plus contestants. Beat out Tuley/Simmons among others.

Not bad, considering I had three weeks with only one win. Add another on to that and I was one win away from money.
Last five weeks: 16-8-1.

42-41-2 overall last year and I didn’t put any thought into those picks, so improvement.

SC Week 2

Bucs +7.5
The Bucs aren’t that bad and the Giants looked terrible last week. More than a TD? Come on.

Colts +1
Sure, AP is back, but this is Andrew Luck’s first game at home. The Vikings are not a good team on the road and Ponder will prove it. The Colts will be pumped and ready to get their first win.

Rams +3
Is it me or is everyone overrating the Redskins and RG3? The Rams actually have a tougher defense than the Saints and will cause problems. The Rams will use a more balanced attack than the Saints and win.

Jets +6
Maybe the Steelers will win, but it won’t be by much. They didn’t look good against the Broncos and the Jets looked fantastic. It’ll be a close, hard fought game.

Chargers -6
The Titans lost at home to the Patriots by 21 points. How are they going to come closer AT San Diego? The Chargers defense looked tough and will cause problems for the Titans offense all game.

SuperContest Week 1

I went one game above .500 last year. Okay, but I didn’t put too much time into it like years past.

Patriots -5.5 – Confused at how Locker will keep up with Brady
Eagles -8.5 – Weeden to…?
Bucs +2.5 – At home, Panthers overrated
Seahawks -2.5 – Cardinals are a mess
Broncos -1.5 Couldn’t beat them with Tebow, now they have Peyton.

I spent like 1min on these, could change in next 24 hours.

2012 NFL Playoff Predictions

Patriots 13-3       Packers 12-4
Texans 11-5         Eagles 11-5
Ravens10-6        Falcons 10-6
Broncos 9-7         49ers 10-6
Steelers10-6         Bears 10-6
Chargers 9-7        Cowboys 9-7

I don’t really know who the best team in the AFC is. Let’s say Texans vs. Falcons in SB. I hate it.

Tough wild card spots there.

Spartans 2012 Tourney Loss

Draymond Green is a great player. He had a great season. But after the game he said something like this: “Draymond Green admitted he feared MSU was going to lose before the game: “I think everybody just knew. We had a feeling.”

What the hell does that mean? Does it make it okay to play terrible? Play lazy? Make stupid plays? Sure, Draymond had 16 boards but only one of them was offensive. He only had two assists. Shot 5-16 for 13 pts and had 6 turnovers and a bunch of bad fouls at the end of the game. When he gets frustrated, he doesn’t do too well because he thinks he has to do everything, but the thing is, he doesn’t.

No matter, if we played like this against Saint Louis, we probably would have lost.

We gave it to our bigs a few times early in the game and they missed shots. Instead of continuing that trend, we stopped and obviously, it didn’t help. I don’t even think Payne got the ball down low in the 2nd half. Nix did once and shot it from his waist. I don’t think Louisville is that good, but they had a decent game while Michigan State had a bad game.

And with Izzo, we basically went about 8-9, sometimes 10 people deep, even in important games. Only went 7 against one of the most well-rounded teams in the country. Kearney only got 3 minutes? He got at least 9 minutes in his previous 11 games? What the hell happened there?

“Izzo in post-game presser says he’ll make sure MSU doesn’t head out to a site on a Monday again. Too much down time in hotel”

Maybe that had something to do with it? Some of the players going out?

Oh well, just a bad game. Disappointing way to go out, but what are you going to do? For how good they’ve played all year… you’re just going to be sick.

I don’t really know where this game came from. Like the Illinois game almost. Next season.

We had a chance this year, a good chance. Maybe better than we’ll get next year. Oh well…
