BHGP College Pick 'Em 2013 - Week Eight RESULTS

Standings on your head.

Hey hey... so it turns out I forgot to post a results update last week, but that just means we have double the fun this week, right?  Right.  Our overall leader remains the same, but cahawki's lead has been trimmed from 6 pts to 4 pts.  Burge Runner is narrowing the gap on you, friend.

Meanwhile, we also need to send some love to the weekly winners.  Last week, John Hawktoasten, I Don't Like Foreign Nate and my own Simply Rudockulous pickset tied, with 14 correct picks.  Huzzah!  This week, my Simply Rudockulous pickset did even better, scoring 15 correct picks.  (More on that in a moment.)  Aside from that picket, the best result was 14 correct picks, which several pickers were able to do: Puntin' from your 38, BeachHawk, hawkjmr, HeTateMe, and sailorjerry, the provider of our fabulous musical entertainment at the past two AIRBHGAPALOOZA events.  Well done, everyone.

My experiment at using Phil Steele's predictions to make my picks continues and the results are pretty interesting: 14 correct picks three weeks ago, 14 again two weeks ago, and 15 this week.  That success has also lifted that pickset to 14th overall in the standings.  Maybe Phil and his super-computer know a thing or two after all.

The top 50 (and ties) are up above; you can find the full rankings here.

Don't forget to make your picks for this week, too.
