Herky823's super great, not at all dumb or convoluted Iowa football prediction game.

I mean, I'm not a Dr., but if you copy his picks and put your tie-breaker one yard less than him, the only way he wins is if he gets the yards exactly right. I'm not suggesting you do this, because WOW that would be awesome mean.
That's not how Price is Right rules work. @The Dad has it right.

A sincere thank you to @Herky823 for setting this up.

26 people entered.

The predicted records by number of people as follows:

12-0: 3
11-1: 7
10-2: 9
9-2: 6
8-3: 1

Week 1, Indiana. Only @RecreationalGynecologist and @Talkin' Goat predicted Indiana to win, the other 24 had Iowa. Five points for the correct game pick. Five points go to the correct number of total touchdowns from Guitar Petras.

One touchdown: 7 people
Two touchdowns: 17 people
Three touchdowns: 2 people

Total possible points from week-to-week is 10, with a possibility (correct overall record at end of season) worth 15 additional points.

Total maximum number of points possible, 135.

I didn't play (IGFMN) but have been following along with interest. I've been surprised at the number of folks predicting Goodson will have 1200-1500 yards this season. That'd be riding him like a rented mule. I hope he's successful this season, but I also hope other aspects of our offense are productive enough that we don't run him into the ground.

But I did predict 12-0 in the other thread...so choo choo :roll:

@Herky823, are you allowing late entries? Your game, your rules, just need to know for scorekeeping.

I set the time because I figured you don't want to fuck around with it the morning of the game. Whenever you're fine locking in picks is fine with me. If you want that to be kickoff or midnight or whatever that's OK too.

7 people got the maximum 10 points for correctly picking the win and 1 touchdown by Petras.

None of the seven were the five perfect pickers from week 1, setting up a 12 way tie for first. Four people missed both picks this week, with @KitKatApples also having missed both in week 1.

This thing is rigged. Last week I was in first place and now I'm behind Sleepy Callisto/Gustang/LWade. We need an audit.

I had 24 touchdowns for the season by Mr. Petras. I am not a very smart man. Although he was about a yard short of getting a second touchdown pass yesterday, which would make today's standings look much different.
