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

With that said, there is now a sole leader in first place.

1. @L. Wade Childress 35

2. @brantshawks 30

Wow, I love everyone on that list. Humbled to be in the company of so many good posters and football minds. Let’s finish strong!

We need more smack talk in this thread, and I applaud @L. Wade Childress for starting it.

Through 4 games, Spencer Petras has 5 touchdowns. If that trend continues, @Verbal, @Callisto, and @thrawn are the dark horses in waiting to make a strong push. The other big factor will be the 15 point bonus for the correct end-of-year record. That will most likely be the deciding factor.

Brants name is at the top of the 2s, but I take great pleasure in knowing he literally cannot win.

That faggot (brants) is just dumb enough to guess Goodson’s yardage right on the number.

Despite my well documented position on Spencer Petras, I foolishly considered ~2TDs per game a reasonable benchmark for the QB on a 9 win team.

To make it worse, of his 5 touchdowns, one was rushing. Yuck.

Well, not many changes. @MikeyJoe and @WCFHawkeye are the only 2 posters to move up, each leaping forward a spot.

No one predicted more than 3 touchdowns for Petras, so no one had a perfect week. Petras had 3 TD passes and 2 rushes for 5 touchdowns total, making us all look like idiots.

With 10 touchdowns through 5 games, Petras is also on track for 24 touchdowns for the season, exactly like most people have been saying all along.

Also, it should be noted, if our beloved Hawkeye faithful fan @brantshawks can beat out the other 28 participants, or enough to finish in a tie for first, and Tyler Goodson gets exactly 693 yards over the next 7 games, will own all the tie-breakers. He is in good shape right now, within striking distance of Mr. Childress. However, I hope he loses ground next week (and, I lose also) as hoping Penn State does not secure the victory as predicted.

One person had 0 points for the week, and is bolded.

Here are the standings through Week 5, with total points (50 points max possible):

1. @L. Wade Childress 40

2. @brantshawks 35
2. @Callisto 35
2. @Debit One 35
2. @Gushawk 35
2. @Pedro 35
2. @roseboundhawk 35
2. @sobrien51 35
2. @The Dad 35

10. @BngHawk 30
10. @Hawk_Kegmasters 30

26. @WCFHawkeye 20

29. @KitKatApples 15

Next week there will be lots of movement, with 12 posters predicting a Penn State victory, and 17 choosing Iowa.

In the Petras' touchdown category against Pedo State:

0 TD's: 2 people
1 TD: 12 people
2 TD's: 14 people
3 TD's: 1 person

You forgot to add: "And there is still no way that Brant can win."

It was a most interesting week, with lots of movement.

9 posters hit the correct combination of an Iowa win, and Spencer "Big Balls" Petras 2 touchdowns. Those 9 are bolded in Green.

7 posters were a bit more off, missing both ends. Those 7 posters are bolded in red.

Of biggest note, @KitKatApples is no longer solo in the cellar, with your truly, @WCFHawkeye keeping him company and stroking his beard (amongst other things). @L. Wade Childress, while still in first, is not alone, and the other 2 brothers are now tied, as one was perfect for the week, and the other was perfect in the opposite direction.

Here are the standings through Week 6, with total points (60 points max possible):


1. @Debit One 45
1. @Gushawk 45

1. @L. Wade Childress 45
1. @Pedro 45

5. @BngHawk 40

5. @brantshawks 40
5. @Hawk_Kegmasters 40
5. @sobrien51 40
5. @TH1974 40
5. @The Dad 40
5. @The Incredible Hawk 40
5. @Uff Da 40

Week 7 will see much less movement, with only 4 predicting a loss to Purdue.

In the Petras' touchdown category against Purdue:

0 TD's: 3 people
1 TD: 10 people
2 TD's: 8 people
3 TD's: 8 person

Lastly, with Tyler Goodson's 101 total yards against Penn State, is on pace for 1354 yards for the season. This projected number is close enough that @brantshawks has a very real shot of winning in a tie-breaking scenario.

All kidding aside, I appreciate @Herky823 for creating these games, as no one else is willing to on Halo. Much like the recent football game in Iowa City this weekend, everyone has fun. It makes for a fun diversion, and shows that I absolutely suck at such games, but enjoy them anyway.

In order for @brantshawks to win Iowa has to lose to Northwestern and he has to get the tiebreaker exactly. @Gushawk has the same TDs the rest of the way and picked a win vs Northwestern.

I'm not a doctor, but that leaves Brant's odds to win ---checks notes-- at exactly 50/50.

So who here wants Brant's to win?
