If you happened to see the live thread yesterday, then you already know who sits atop the leaderboard. At 30-16, cchstove has a one pick lead over smbz5b, mizzou2396 and J. Rife. At two picks back, new names dot the board with both tallboyers and optiger sitting within shouting distance. After Monday however, with only a handful of games remaining, you had better be close if you want a shot at the title.

At the bottom of the barrel, the ever-fluxing names have left us with an eight-person log jam at 17-29. 23 wins may have been the all-time lowest, so with about a dozen games left, it seems like everyone should be able to avoid the ultra-basement.

On the whole, I think we missed on some majority picks yesterday, but still managed to move to just over 49%. .500 seems to be a pipe-dream at this point, as only Okie State and LSU appear to be so preferred that they may be able to move the needle all by themselves.

I hope everyone was safe and smart last night, and if you are smart today, then you are going to change the channel to NFL Red Zone in about 10 minutes and then not touch the remote for about 6 and a half hours. In the meantime, and as always, you can access your picks and all the totals (located at the bottom of the page) by clicking on this link.
