    Thanks Don, I just assumed that when I went to the site the current week automatically came up but I have to select.

    Just finished mine.

    You are good Bill! I received a note from Frog Tree this morning. Missed week 1 due to being sidetracked by Hurricane Dorian. She is OK.

    Did we do away with the option of dropping your worst week?

    Terry, I think the problem with that was that the "worst week" is usually the last week for everybody because there are fewer games and thus fewer points available. So if Tree Frog's week 1 is deleted she still gets dinged because she has to count the last week with fewer points while everybody else drops it. Plus those are some of the best games.

    Terry, that option has not been used for several years. I chose not use that option when I took over the contest from Tom.

    Stu's explanation makes sense. I hadn't really thought about it till this week.

    I see a few incompletes as of this morning, with a game tonight on tap with Boise State and Marshall. We also have a mystery entry (Buckeye Monie)??

    We have a solid Husband Wife team in the contest. Sandspur wins week #2 and Grabby finishes second due to tie-breaker pick, JO'Co is third. Grabby is the overall leader after two weeks.

    Well I made a bit of a recovery, kind of right in the middle right now. Horrible first week, pretty good second week.

    Since I was leaving town for Dorian I took less time on the second week. Maybe that's the secret for me. :)
