I don't see this as a stretch at all, even though I picked SCSU. DU has won something like 10 of their last 11 and they are at home. Having said that, hopefully they lose. :p

30 goals were scored in Atlantic Hockey last night. That means that all bear, 97osu, and Aerman earned the full 5 points for Bonus Question #2.

Also, for the first time this season, the entire group got a game wrong (LSSU-Bemidji). That game marked the 6th time that the entire group picked the same winner. Previously, the group was 3-0-2 when predicting unanimously.

What to watch for tonight? The Wisconsin-Michigan game has a good chance of determining who will lead overall after the week. 1988 and FiveHole12 are separated by only 4 points going into tonight's games. In the other four matchups, they predicted the same winners, but 1988 took Michigan to win on the road, while FiveHole12 picked the hometown Badgers for the win. If Wisconsin wins, whoever does better on Bonus Question #1 will take the top spot overall. Laker Dude would also be in the mix if Wisconsin won, but Laker Dude would need to get within 1 penalty minute in regards to Bonus Question #1 to earn the top spot. If Michigan wins, FiveHole12 would need to get within 1 penalty minute to take over top billing. Laker Dude would not be able to take over the top spot with a Michigan victory.

Anyway, good luck to everyone tonight!

FWIW, you were up 8 points heading into this week, and could end this week up 18 points if the games fall your way. Of course, you could also end up 10 points out of first.

Wild times these pick'em contests. Make sure to hydrate. ;)

Nobody really did. The final tally was 119 PIM. Only Siouxfaninseattle earned points (2) for that question.

Week 14 Standings:
t1. Aerman - 37 points (8-2-0)
t1. all bear - 37 points (8-2-0)
3. gochiefs - 34 points (8-2-0)
4. FiveHole12 - 33 points (8-2-0)
5. BCeagle - 32 points (8-2-0)
6. Siouxfaninseattle - 31 points (7-3-0)
7. FS23 - 30 points (7-3-0)

The average correct pick % this week was a strong 66.67%. The average points earned this week was a record 28.61 points. Very good week this week for our predictions. Nobody predicted worse than 50%.

OVERALL STANDINGS: Top 10
t1. FiveHole12 - 281 Points (88-39-13)
t1. 1988 - 281 Points (80-47-13)
3. Laker Dude - 273 Points (75-52-13)
4. Siouxfaninseattle - 251 Points (76-51-13)
5. Aerman - 250 Points (74-45-11)
6. all bear - 246 Points (79-48-13)
7. SweeneyHawksHockey - 243 Points (75-52-13)
8. Irish08 - 240 Points (72-55-13)
t9. gochiefs - 235 Points (65-52-13)
t9. FS23 - 235 Points (68-59-13)

Overall, our correct pick % went up to 55.78%. I do expect that number to keep increasing during the second half of the year. Will we reach 60%? If we continue to predict at this pace we have a good chance.

Anyway, I should have Week 15's games up either later today or at the latest tomorrow evening.
