The winner of Week 10 in the Pigskin Pick 10 is?
The Pigskin Pick 10, Week 10 (that is just fun to say) is behind us, and it was a tough week. You know it's a tough week was when you see Blake Hempsted in the running at 7-3. I’d say our class average was in the 5-5, 6-4 neighborhood.
On the college side of the equation, the majority of people picked the College of Idaho at home to beat Carroll. Now, whether people picked the Yotes because they thought they were the better team, or just an inability to pick Carroll, is not known. What is known, is this game had the most ‘cheap seats’ comments of all the games.
In a game I wouldn’t classify as a Barn Burner by any stretch of the imagination, the Horn Frogs rolled into Texas and took care of the Hook ‘Em horns. Texas is streaky! They are still trying to capture that magic they manufactured against Oklahoma last month.
Alabama took care of business and knocked Ole Miss out of the running for the SEC West title. Not many in the class went with Ole Miss.
To be blunt, not many cared about the last 2 games, UCF @ Tulane, and North Carolina @ Wake Forest. There was more than 1 comment that N.C and Wake are hoop schools, not football schools.
To the NFL games. There weren’t a lot of locks on the NFL side. Both sides of all the games did get some play
The biggest winner? SKOL! The Vikings get a huge win, handing the Bills their first home loss of the year. This game hurt a large chunk of our group.
The biggest loser (in regards to the pigskin pick 10) was the L.A Rams, they slapped almost everyone in our pool when they fell to the Cardinals.
The Seahawks woke up in the second half and gave it a go, but came up short to the Buccaneers. The Steelers doubled up the Saints, and the 49ers took down the Chargers on Sunday Night Football to jump to 5-4 on the year.
I mentioned earlier that our class average was in the 5-5, or 6-4 area. Decent.
Some of the notables at 6-4 were, John Stenson, Larry Rowe and Jeff Graham.
We had some solid finishers at 7-3. Those include Blake Hempsted (I know, I triple-checked) Sean Ryan, and Ashleigh Preston.
Our winner for Week 10 of the Pigskin Pick 10 is Brandon Dallaserra! Brandon went 8-2 to sit on top of the pile this week.
Brandon has won $50 in gift cards to MacKenzie River Pizza, and $50 in Gas cards from Town Pump. Congratulations Brandon, and thank you everyone for playing Week 10 of the Pigskin Pick 10, brought to us this week by True Value Hardware. Stay close Week 11’s games are coming up.
