During Week 13 of College Football Compeition 3 people were a perfect 16/16 and 1 tipper had a near miss 15/16.

1 person, gtho4, was perfect for the 2nd time and dutchy50 and paper_aero were perfect for the first time.

George95 also had a near miss 15/16 in the same week of the competition.

Well done to all four of them. George95 will have his name enshrined like gtho4...go 15/16 and NOT get a Hall of Fame win. He is only the second person to do that in over 11 years.

e.g. what are the odds are of picking 4/43 drivers, then excluding the 4th and only scoring for the first 3 across the line (aka as two bites at the cherry) vs. the odds of picking 8/8 in AFL or 15/15 in the NBA? I don't know the answer and, at first blush, it doesn't look like they're in the same ballpark.


I'd say 15/15 is pretty tough...maybe 1 in 0.5 or 1M...ish. I'm not an accountant, but I am fairly good with numbers.

It's up to you, but I still think 64 weeks is impressive in itself!


A challenge is a challenge:

To get 1-2-3 in Nascar, allowing for 4 drivers to be chosen and assuming that there are 43 drivers in the field with equal odds, and having the lowest driver be thrown out is 1 in 3085.25, or about 0.0324123%
In F1, the odds based on a field of 24 drivers, are 1 in 2024, because you have less drivers, but not the fourth driver that can be thrown out.
By comparison, getting 10/10 in the FAPL is 1 in 59049
Getting 15/15 in NHL or NFL or College Football, etc. is 1 in 32768
Getting 12/12 in the FLC is a whopping 1 in 531441!
Getting 5/5 in the A-League is only 1 in 243
Sorting through the odds for tennis is a bit trickier, because there, the odds for every player are certainly not even. Getting a 0/8 there is much more "difficult" than in any other competition. You can obviously do it deliberately, but, if you're playing to win, it's pretty darned hard.
Chosing 1-2-3 in a horse race with 24 horses and all horses having an equal chance to win, with 10 choices is 15 in 253, or around 5.92885% i.e. very doable.

Getting a wooden spoon/HoF in any competition, the odds are the same because you're up against players who are picking choices with similar odds. So, the streak of spoonless weeks is all relative to the amount of competitors you have in the competition and not what the odds are for picking a perfect week.

Also, getting 14/15 the odds of that are 1 in 2184.53
The odds of getting 14/16 are 1 in 546.13 so, much easier (exactly four times easier) than getting one wrong out of 15, even though you picked the same amount of correct guesses.

*** N-Bomb is the BIG news of 2011. He had his first appearance on the medals table in 2010 with one 3rd place finish. In 2011 he was on the podium more than anyone else, except that perennial champion gtho4 and the new "Mr. Consistent" paper_aero. Last year's "find" illiniman14 is right up there with yet another strong showing throughout the year.

*** Howie72, Sypher and LeoDaVinci continue their steady showing, but srini701 drops out of the top 10 for the first time in 5 years. He was No. 1 in the standings for the last 3 years running but failed to win a single comp all year long frown

*** 23 people finished on the podium in 2011 as against 27 in 2010. First time podium finishers in 2011 include George95, Rxbigdawg, toocool4u, chogobad and sward351.

**Final F1 positions for 2011 not included in this list. They will be included in 2012 standings

  • perfect picks : 15/16 : NCAAF Round 13 : George95
The FunTrivia HoF has been updated for these medals and records.
A special mention for Dizart who's yet to appear on the podium but makes his 2nd entry into the Record Book, and for dutchy50 who makes his first ever appearance on the podium!
  • NFL : dg_dave : the first NFL tipping comp was in 2000. The first 11 comps produced 11 different winners .. the 12th comp saw the first repeat winner! (his previous win was in 2007)
  • the NCAA March Madness is the last man standing. It has been running for 10 years and has produced 10 different winners; and will probably produced an 11th this year as this comp is pure unadulterated madness. We lodge all our picks at the start; there are four streams producing a final four, and we have a choice of four #1 seeds!
  • Super Bowl: Sypher : the first Super Bowl comp was in 2003. The 2012 comp was the 9th running of this comp (not run in 2004). Sypher was the first person to win this twice (he won the first comp plus 2009); which is still a record. This year he becomes the first to win this three times! (i.e no-one else has won this twice, or three times)
  • the field of 23 runners in the Super Bowl comp is an all-time record. The previous best was 20 runners in 2005 and 20 runners last year.
  • the field of 13 runners in the two Australian Open tennis comps is an all-time record for both comps. The previous best was 11 runners (equalled many times).
Congratulations to all the medallists, and the new record-holders!

I'd have to agree since both had seven correct tips and also scored 33 points.

RECORD BOOK
  • consecutive weeks as leader : 12 weeks : illiniman14 : weeks 23-34 of FT-PL.
  • consecutive weeks as leader : 26 weeks : LeoDaVinci : weeks 6-31 of FAPL.
The FunTrivia HoF has been updated for the above medals and records.
  • superhooppete becomes the second player to lift the UK football FAPL & FA Cup Double: the first was srini701 in 2010.
  • PaulE was the first, and still the only, player to lift the FT-PL & FA Cup Double (achieved back in 2007). No-one has won all three in the same season, but Sypher has won all three a season apart .. FA Cup in 2005, FT-PL in 2006 and FAPL in 2006 (and 2004, amongst others).
  • the US Open golf comp is back after an absence of 8 years .. it was last run in 2004!
  • the silver medal by dg_dave in the UEFA Champions League is his first-ever podium finish outside North America.
  • the field of 13 runners in the Roland Garros comp (women) equals the all-time record (set last year).
  • superhooppete makes his second podium appearance, and they're both gold!
  • the Euro Rugby comp (Heineken Cup) has been running for three years .. srini701 has won silver in all three! Another three and he'll equal the all-time record for any comp .. Sypher won silver in the NFL comp for 6 straight seasons, 2000 to 2005.

I hate to take myself off a leaderboard, but I had a spoon in week 29 of last year's (2010-11) FT-PL, so it should only be 35 weeks - I believe srini and I are tied in that regard.

fixed,
the Form Guide has you down for two spoons during the season .. found them at weeks
2 and 11, so I stopped looking. It should've shown 3 spoons i.e. the FG doesn't add!

correction,
14/15 no longer rates a mention in the Record Book, as there were far too many of them!
a perfect near miss is now 15/16
