Week One Pigskin Pick'em Results!
INDIANA -- Our first week of Pick'em is now final. Here are the best and worst from the past weekend's results plus a look ahead at the coming weeks. It's not too late to join the fun!
Here's the quick weekly update on how things are progressing.
The link below will open an updated spreadsheet that will serve as our overall score sheet. Remember players can only pick each team once. Used teams have been highlighted in red on the scoreboard once they have been used.
Pigskin Week 1 Standings
Gibson Southern was by far the most popular pick this week, as 13 of our 16 contestants picked the Titans over the Forest Park Rangers. Typically when that occurs, the overwhelming choice of our players ends up with a significantly larger margin of victory than any other team for the week. That did not happen this time. Of all our players, RedCoach was the only one to pick the Rockville Rox, and their 56-0 throttling of the Seeger Patriots leaves him with sole possession of the lead after the opening round. Our 13 contestants who picked Gibson Southern are tied for second place only two points back as we head into Week 2.
Our contestants are reminded that their predictions for the tiebreaker are due at the same time as their Week 2 picks: 6:00 pm ET on Friday, Aug. 29. It is not mandatory to submit a tiebreaker prediction; however, if there is a tie at the end of the contest, a player who submitted a prediction will be declared the winner over one who did not. Ties will be broken by predicting the total combined scores of the eight teams playing in the Lucas Oil Stadium Showcase on Aug. 30:
Winamac vs. Pioneer
Brownstown Central vs. Charlestown
Plainfield vs. Danville
Indian Creek vs. Greenwood
