So. Football Pool.

Postby John Q. Public » Tue Aug 20, 2019 12:26 am

Yes! We're doing it and the prediction page is up and ready to go - https://www.occonnect.com/prediction-week-1/

The number of players might be smaller this year, or, maybe it won't be. We'll see. Everyone's welcome and it doesn't take any special skill to play. Hell, I've finished 3rd for the last three years. That should be proof enough of that. So jump on in.

A couple things different this year:
I'm making the lists myself now, so they're likely to be up earlier in the week and the lists might lean a little more toward smaller schools. At least if I see a close game between La Quinta and Bolsa Grande, I'll go with that over one that looks like a blowout involving a D1 school.

Also, I've dropped the Game of the Week. It's never scored any differently and it's never really had any significance, so it's gone.

Oh, and I changed the Theme on the WordPress side to one that's more phone-friendly, so the prediction page fits a little better. It breaks out a little on the right side but at least you can scroll over a little and see it where you couldn't before. I'll see if I can tweak it a little to make it fit better, but at least it's usable now.

Any questions about how to play, see the or feel free to ask in this thread.

You only need to pick the winner, so most of us go with a score of 1-0. Sometimes we forget the zero and it makes the pick not count. It's very common, actually, so it's best to scroll back over the page and check to see if you left any spaces blank.

One gutsy person putting his golden futbol on Upland.

As a refresher, you only get one of those for the whole year, and once clicked they can't be un-clicked but they can be moved to any other game that week.

Rankings as of Friday night. PTG from start to finish! So far. JohnnyU and Vernster right behind him at 20. And GoBruins climbing back from 0 for Thursday at 17.

Mission Viejo and Konawaena are still in the 2nd quarter but everyone picked MV, so add 1. Or don't if we were all wrong.

1. Playthegame 21
2. JohnnyU 20
3. vernster52 20
4. John Q. Public 19
5. southocfootball 19
6. 2002tony 18
7. GoBruins 17
8. bigbear 14
9. JvJoe 14

Week 1 is in the books. The only change in the standings is that JVJoe slipped one. Now if PTG would just do the same. :mrgreen:

Week 2 games are posted.

And yes, Estancia fans, I went with a few games between smaller, more closely matched teams rather than the bigger, more familiar schools. There's still some pretty easy picks but there are a few that could be anybody's guess. Gotta keep it interesting.

After 4 games, we have JohnnyU, PTG and Southocfootball at 3 apiece. The rest of us, I guess I could have picked 4 games in Nebraska and we'd have done as well.

We get our revenge tomorrow. :rockon:

Ugly week unless you're 2002tony. :cheers:

Four people barely above 50% and Bigbear and I probably could have done better with a dart board. Geesh!

Still waiting for a score on Brea Olinda and Sonora. Scorestream says Brea 21-6 but I'll only call that "tentative." Two more games tomorrow, so I guess we still have a shot at redemption.

So many games that look like mismatches this week that I had a hard time finding 30 that looked fairly competitive.

But here ya go. Some easy, some not so easy. I know I'll eat that part about "easy." #-o

Vernster! 26 for 29. And the rest of us, for the most part, improved a little from last week so the rankings are a little prettier. Except for Glorious Webmaster, the guy who's supposed to nag about such things, somehow managing to not fill in three scores. Doofus.

I'll post the final ranking after tonight's game.
