WHOA NELLIE! Not a good week as nearly 2/3 of you were under .500, many not even close (looking at you, crip) Here's the Top 8 of the week (there is a 14 way tie at 7-6.) More Charts, analysis, and this week's games after the break.
|Standings for Week 6|
|2||Mike the Tiger||9-4||9|
Consistently solid weeks are helping ADD-Day slowly but surely pull away from the pack. While I am impressed that the majority of you are still above .500 overall, some of you are getting dangerously close to mathematical elimination as the gap from worst to first is now 25 points.

You'd think the big miss this week would obviously have been SCar's season-altering upset, but it's not even in the Top 3. A&M covering raises some eyebrows, as does USC nearly pulling the upset on a hungover Stanford, and the shootout in Lexington. Some of you still refuse to learn your lesson about betting on Tulane and USL had the upset at the half until reality set in.

Lots of agonizing hand-wringing about these picks, but nobody ever said this was easy. In a shootout, I'll take Mallet's arm. Ole Miss beats Bama because that is the way these things work. Picking Wisconsin more because I want Ohio State to lose, and that should be a good enough reason for anyone. Nebraska says goodbye to Texas in a big way, Vandy covers, and the unbelievable drawing power of the Wannstache forces me to take Pitt over the (is that right? double checks) Big East LEADING 'Cuse. Your painful Local Pick this week is Idaho at La Tech as a 1-point spread.
Good Luck. No weekday games, so picks are due Saturday before the noon kick.
