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

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:

Rushing and receiving. It seems reasonable tbh.

@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.

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.

Updated standings below, alphabetical in case of a tie, with bold being the perfect (or imperfect) picks from this week.
