    Maybe “we” just suck at posting in general. Huh, Karl?

    Crazy game. Can’t throw over the middle like that in OT—especially when you have one of the best kickers around. But I guess it never should have come down to that. There were a lot of little things that added up in this game...but I’ll leave that to the experts to break down.

    What we learned about Trojan fans this week is that they really long for the old days and the big wins. We had a lot of runaway win picks this week. Personally, I rarely deviate from my mathematical analysis, but I did this week as my number showed BYU winning by 3, but my conscious brain just could not conceive of that, so I bumped up the USC score to match my heart. I may not do that again for the rest of the season.


    Our first split decision of the season...which usually only happens when the Trojans lose. This week we award the

    Closest to the Pin Award since the least cumulative variance did not pick the winning team.
    @FreeReggieBush had the lowest cumulative variance with only a 4 point differential. His pick was USC 31-BYU 30


    Only one player picked BYU to win and consequently, he takes

    The Official Game Prediction Winner of the Week Award
    @BYUTexan picked a final score of BYU 21 – USC 20 and had only a 12 point differential, so a pretty good pick.


    The Coveted Most Wrong Title
    @Tamatoa916 had the winning pick this week with a score of USC 63 – BYU 0
    That’s pretty much self-explanatory, so I won’t add any unnecessary commentary.


    We will post the Season Long Prediction Czar standings after week 3 within 24 hours – hopefully later today

    I had the most accurate comment unfortunately:

    I think if we score more than 28pts we win the game..

    The Race for the Season Long Prediction Czar is underway. 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 two of the three games played so far.

    The race is tightening up, but remember it is a very long season. As past history will attest, a couple of bad games do not put you out of the running.

    We are already up over 160 unique players so far this season.


    Your Top 20 are as follows:

    Rank Name YTD Games
    1 @TrojanHorse 10.0 3
    2 @Poodlemothra 10.5 2
    2 @USC1 10.5 2
    4 @Carlsport 10.7 3
    5 @OC2SC 12.3 3
    6 @HEAVYHITTER 13.7 3
    7 @holt7153 14.3 3
    8 @BESCFAN 15.0 2
    8 @cheynaspop 15.0 2
    10 @DJ4SC 15.3 3
    11 @AnnenbergGrad 15.7 3
    11 @SoAmericanTrojan 15.7 3
    13 @BigBen 16.0 3
    13 @USC73 Gerry Gumser 16.0 3
    15 @Merlin4SC 16.3 3
    16 @Zippy 16.33 3
    17 @Gabriel2Snow 16.7 3
    18 @zitorocks 16.67 3
    19 @cutlerdaddy 17.0 3
    19 @in2nation 17.0 3
    19 @KiwiSCfan 17.0 3
    19 @Troken 17.0 3

    I'm just a pacemaker here, btw, playing for pride only. I can not win the competition as that would be a conflict.


    Congrats everyone!



    Beat the Utes!

    It's OK if you win Horse. We trust your integrity. Also all predictions are done publicly, so anyone can double-check if they wish.

    Well I picked USC to beat Utah, so that whole thing could go South pretty quickly...
