  • Nobody can stop the dg_dave train, as he and Howie72 enter the HoF by taking home perfect weeks and total 17 points with the perfect bonus. dg_dave is now up 11 points on gtho4, who in turn is up 3 points on N-Bomb. N-Bomb has a 6-point lead for 3rd place, so those 3 could very well make up the podium at the end of the season. wwe84 and Sypher take home spoons this week.

  • Everybody netted a point with Oregon’s rout of Oregon State; Oklahoma running over West Virginia 59-31, and LSU’s easy victory over Texas A&M 45-21. In fact, none of our games ended in single digit margins of victory this week, with the closest being Ohio State’s 11-point victory over Michigan.

  • The new CFP rankings were: #1 Alabama, #2 Miami (FL), #3 Clemson, and #4 Oklahoma. Miami played on Friday night against 4-7 Pittsburgh, and the Panthers pulled out the upset 24-14. However, Miami will play Clemson regardless in the ACC Championship Game. Alabama faced off against #6 Auburn in the Iron Bowl, and lost 26-14 – giving Auburn 2 wins over #1 teams in 3 weeks. Meanwhile, #5 Wisconsin finished the regular season undefeated. Alabama will be idle next week, while Auburn and #7 Georgia play in the SEC Championship Game; Wisconsin will play #9 Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game, and Oklahoma will play #12 TCU in the Big 12 Championship Game.

  • Late edit - in the 2013 comp Howie72 was in the wooden spoon column for week 10 but did not actually get the spoon score, so his consecutive spoonless streak in the Hall of Fame is correct and is now at 101 consecutive weeks.



  • spoonless streaks:
    George95 .. no spoons since starting in 2011 (98 wks) + 8 weeks = 106
    Howie72 .. last spoon week 10 of 2011 (88 wks) + 13 weeks = 101
    Sypher .. last spoon week 15 of 2013 (51 wks) + 7 weeks = 58

  • dg_dave’s lead seems insurmountable heading into bowl season, as it remains at 11 points with 2 rounds left. ElfTwinkle takes home the weekly win and takes home a solo bonus as well, while ozzz2002 takes the wooden spoon.

  • The only real upset (since all the FCS playoff games were pick ‘em) was Georgia winning the SEC Championship Game over Auburn. That pushed the Bulldogs into the playoffs, with #1 Clemson facing off against #4 Alabama, and #2 Oklahoma against #3 Georgia. The Big Ten got shut out of the playoffs for the first time.



  • spoonless streaks:
    George95 .. no spoons since starting in 2011 (98 wks) + 8 weeks = 106
    Howie72 .. last spoon week 10 of 2011 (88 wks) + 14 weeks = 102
    Sypher .. last spoon week 15 of 2013 (51 wks) + 7 weeks = 58

    No...I remember a 16 point win for someone else, and I won one by 13 or 14 one year.

  • dg_dave will be the champion barring just an epic collapse in the final round, but there will be a battle for second as gtho4 and N-Bomb are tied after 15 weeks. wwe84 took home the weekly win alongside two solo bonuses, while Dizart and gillyharold shared wooden spoons.

  • Eight upsets this round (and one pick ‘em game) meant scores were low across the board. Nobody hit in double figures, so there was little movement. Appalachian State took the prize for the biggest surprise this round, winning 34-0 as a 7-point underdog. Wyoming was a 23-point victor in the only pick ‘em game, while Ohio took UAB to the woodshed 41-6.



  • spoonless streaks:
    George95 .. no spoons since starting in 2011 (98 wks) + 8 weeks = 106
    Howie72 .. last spoon week 10 of 2011 (88 wks) + 15 weeks = 103
    Sypher .. last spoon week 15 of 2013 (51 wks) + 7 weeks = 58

  • dg_dave runs away to victory, highlighted by a 7-point swing in Week 10 that gave him the lead for good, and it went all the way up to 11 points for 3 straight weeks. Congratulations! dg_dave finished third in 3 straight years before missing the podium last year, and came away with a gold this year.

  • The only real race going on was for second place, as N-Bomb and gtho4 were tied going into the final round of bowl games. N-Bomb came out with more than half correct and a solo bonus to boot, while gtho4 shared a wooden spoon with dg_dave and ended up in third, for the first time this season. N-Bomb gets a second straight silver, and finishes in the podium for the third straight year.

  • Dizart came out in the final week with a weekly win, matched in total points by N-Bomb, wwe84, and ozzz2002. wwe84 got 3 solo bonuses to finish out the season, and really went for the most points possible with another 3 games potentially earning a solo bonus. ozzz2002 didn’t have much to play for at the end, but came out with a good result. Both wwe84 and ozzz2002 put their faith in the (national champion?) Central Florida Knights.

  • Only one team finished perfect on the season, and that was UCF. The Florida governor declared the team the national champions, and they earned 4 first-place votes in the final AP poll.

  • Meanwhile, the actual national championship game featured an all-SEC matchup of #3 Georgia and #4 Alabama, and it was a good one. Georgia finished the first half with a touchdown, extending their lead to 13-0. They traded touchdowns early in the third quarter, and Alabama etched away at the lead with field goals until the Crimson Tide tied things up with just under 4 minutes left. With 7 seconds left, Alabama set up for a 36-yard field goal to end the game, but it was shanked badly to the left, leaving the game to overtime. Georgia got to third down and suffered a 13-yard sack, but then hit a 51-yard field goal to go up 23-20. Alabama started off even worse, with a 16-yard sack. However, one play later, Alabama became national champions with a 41-yard pass to a wide open receiver in the end zone, and the Crimson Tide won 26-23.



  • spoonless streaks:
    George95 .. no spoons since starting in 2011 (98 wks) + 8 weeks = 106
    Howie72 .. last spoon week 10 of 2011 (88 wks) + 16 weeks = 104
    Sypher .. last spoon week 15 of 2013 (51 wks) + 7 weeks = 58
