    I had to pull the trigger. 14 points is the push. First game I've bet on in years. If SC doesn't throttle AZ under these circumstances something is even more wrong than I thought.

    SC, 45 - 35

    Decent lead midway through the 3rd with UA storming back at the end.

    Helton is still the head coach, team is missing key players and its an away game against a "weaker opponent". On the other hand our defense can't rush passer or stop the run, offense can't run the ball, and you can expect drives to be killed or extended from timely penalties due to lack of discipline.

    I'm sorry what was the question again?

    oh yeah, guess the score: AZ- 28 USC 10

    For the second straight week, USC had trouble getting the ball into the end zone for much of the game, but pulled it out in the last few minutes. Slovis might need to work on his new habitual procrastination. It is just not a good life skill to wait until the last minute to start your work.

    This close game seemed to surprise much of the board this week, but there were several people who had the numbers picked pretty tightly. and in fact we had our first tie at the top of the season this week. My "by the numbers" analysis would have resulted in a “2” differential, but I wrongly assumed some defensive improvement this week. In fact so far by the numbers we seem to be a very similar team to last year.

    Though I have to say, I like the “no quit/no panic” attitude this team is showing so far.

    The Official Game Prediction Winner of the Week Award is tied with three players at a net differential of 5 points.
    @OCBeachTrojan and
    @beeto both had picks of USC 31 UofA 28
    @TrojanHorse picked USC 34 UofA 25

    If only Beeto and OC Beach had been tied at the top, then per rule since OC Beach picked that score first, the nod would have gone to OCBeach. But since it is a three way tie , it seems everyone shares in the title this week. Perhaps a new rule clarification is in order...we will send to the booth upstairs for review.


    The Extremely Coveted Most Wrong Title this week goes to
    @The Lizard King with a pick of USC 70 UofA 0. The Lizard had a plan and executed it perfectly, picking up more or less where he left off last season. And until some other competitor picks up on his tendencies and develops a plan to counter them, it appears he will dominate most weeks that he plays.


    We will post the Season Long Prediction Czar standings after week 2 shortly.

    The Race for the Season Long Prediction Czar is officially taking shape. Remember, in order to be eligible, you must have participated in at least 2/3 of the games played – that means this week you must have participated in both of the games played so far.

    It is puzzling that a few players that had extremely good games last week did not play this week and are therefor not eligible this week. You need to keep playing in order to win.

    The leader this week by a nose is yours truly, with a net differential of 5.5 points. Remember though, I am like a pace car or a place holder, as I can not win the season long race for obvious conflict reasons.

    Your Top 25 are as follows:

    Rank Name YTD
    1 @TrojanHorse 5.5
    2 @holt7153 6
    3 @PickSicx 6.5
    4 @beeto 7.5
    4 @KeepCalm&FightOn 7.5
    6 @Zippy 8
    7 @Carlsport 8.5
    7 @Globe 8.5
    9 @OrangeBill 11
    10 @559er 12
    10 @Arhedge 12
    10 @cutlerdaddy 12
    10 @qqqqqqqman 12
    10 @sctrojan2006 12
    15 @Trojan Man 30 13.5
    15 @TrojanHoss 13.5
    15 @tvgb1995 13.5
    18 @Arthur Jury 14.5
    19 @silversprint 15
    20 @FIGHTONSC 15.5

    Congrats everyone! There are a number of you that are just outside these numbers and of course it is a long season (albeit somewhat shortened this year). Keep playing and you might surprise yourself. Show some Trojan spirit and Fight On!

    Beat the Utes!

    Geez. How the hell does Slovis have 350+, 160+ on the ground (had two TDs) and defense had how many sacks? Yet we did not score 41 points. It's crazy.
