2023 WEEKLY PICK'EM Week 3 & 4

Post by AGinNEIowa » September 10th, 2023, 6:33 am

PLEASE NOTE - I'll be traveling on Week 3, so Week 4 is included here. I will try to post a Week 3 reminder - but may not be able to depending on how my travels go.

Deadline is always 10am Saturday -but picks entered after any Friday game kickoff won't count for that game. Both of these weeks have Friday Games

Congrats to @cornia27 for winning week 2 with 12 correct picks and the lower tiebreaker of 20 (UCLA by 17 with 372 yards of offense for bsu). @OKAggie (45 tiebreaker) and @JFWAggie also had 12.

WEEK 3 WORKSHEET is here Tiebreakers are Margin of Victory for your pick in game #14 Colorado State at Colorado (CSU win is Negative number) and Fresno State Total yards of Offense at Arizona State
ONE FRIDAY Game this week - USU at air force

Who The Hell Cares Game - this week is from Division 3 - matching up teams from the Landmark and Empire 8 Conferences. The Susquehanna University River Hawks from the Landmark Conference are 2-0 on the season, having beat Bridgwater College 51-19 and SUNY Brockport 6-5. The Hawks are currently ranked #22 in the D3Football.com top 25 poll after week 1 and have a pretty balanced offense with 314 yards rushing and 359 passing after 2 games. Hawk QB Josh Ehrlich is 33-49 for 341 yards with 2TD and 1 INT and he also has 34 rushing attempts with 131 yards.
The SUNY Cortland Red Dragons from the Empire 8 Conference are 2-0 on the season, having beat Delaware Valley 42-13 and Lycoming 62-7. The Red Dragons are currently ranked #10 in the D3Football.com top 25 poll after week 1 and their offense appears to be somewhat balanced from averages, 474 rushing and 535 passing, but individual games have been vastly different. Game one rushing yards were 279 vs 195 passing and game 2 was 135 vs 400. Red Dragons QB Zac Boyes is 34-52 for 481 yards 2 TD and 1 INT. Their RB Jaden AlfanoStJohn has 203 yards on 38 carries with 3 TD

Small technical issue. For the New Mexico/NMSU and Colorado/CSU games the form won’t let me pick New Mexico or Colorado.


Presumptuous and ill-informed.

Hmm- not sure what that's all about - others have picked UNM and Colorado, and I was able to change your picks with no problem.
please review your picks and make sure they look okay now.

@NHAggie and @trevordude I see both of you have NMSU and CSU -were you having same issue as Dwigt?

I did choose New Mexico State but I want Colorado NOT Colorado State. Program would not allow that change only if I chose late entry. Your help is greatly appreciated.

For the record, I also chose Colorado over CSU. It's not letting me choose it.

congrats to @NHAggie for winning week 3 -on the tiebreaker. 5 entries had 11 correct picks, in addition to NHAggie -@cornia27 @aggies22 @QuackAttackAggie @aggies1
NHAggie picked Fresno's Yards of Offense correctly at 350 -and missed the score by 21 to have the lowest tiebreaker.

This puts @cornia27 in the lead in the YTD standings with 32, 1 game ahead of 4 others at 31

Four way tie for the WTHCG with 2 of the 3 games QuackAttackAggie, @sstrasser @Dwigt and me

@Floppy Hat leads Kickoff Pick'em with 14 of 18 games correct.

Also- in week 3 there was an incomplete row of picks with no name on the row - anyone want to claim those 5 correct picks??

@sstrasser I noticed you left WTHCG blank in week 4 (Colorado Mines at CSU-Pueblo)
let me know if it wasn't working for you

I skipped it to go back and read about the teams, but then forgot to do it. Thanks for the reminder.

@AGinNEIowa I think I got 10 for week 3 instead of the 9 that got recorded. Could you check? Thank you!

Thanks for pointing that out - the Colorado/CSU game didn't give anyone points in my worksheet -something was funked up in the formula.
Since everyone picked the Buffs, it makes no difference in the standings

Reminder- about 1 hour until the first 2 games of Week 4 kickoff
I take entries until 10am Saturday - but Friday games must be timestamped before they kickoff.

23 entries so far - down from 26 last week
