check your points against huck's formula in the OP and make sure it's right
Can they add a ranking number at the front of the standings list so we can tell what place we're in without counting?

How are you sober enough to post scores after the game?

I was told there would be no math.

as I feared, my score didn't save.   I'm not even at the bottom of the standings.
If you left the tab open, close and reopen. Mine was showing zeroes until I did that.

Shouldn’t this thread stay pinned? @immamac

Lots of people will want to edit their score predictions each week and a link at the top of the football forum would be helpful.

People have already made all of their predictions?  I don't predict anything more than a week out.  I might not even be around for the end of the contest and then it would just be a hassle for my executor to collect the winnings for my estate.

We didn’t lose we just ran out of time water.

This is the next step to the team's maturity. Treat each game like a business transaction. Don't run your mouth and stop with the excessive celebration after making a play.

Notice Brandon Jones after he makes a play...Gets up and runs back into position.

Is there any way to see what other predictions were?

yes, choose week 1 from the dropdown and you'll see everyone's prediction next to their name.

Good, so we can shame anyone who picked LSU tonight.

Damn it.  Son was in the hospital last weekend, and I forgot to make my LSU prediction.  Need to win a week to get my money back since I don't see much chance in winning the whole thing (among the payers) by missing a week.

197 points for me tonight.  I'll take it.   

I figure Vic Mackey had some magical formula; tonight's date's waist size, their age differential, and her weight.

48-13-200

I added a timestamp to the database to see who put the pick in first and they would get it.

Unfortunately I didn't realize when I updated the scores for everyone it also updated the timestamp, so I don't know who put it in first.

So, I'm going to split this one and fix the timestamp before next week

Cool.  It's interesting that several people that had the same score are listed as 1,2,3,4 etc instead of all tied for 1st. 

I was wondering if that order was based on time.

I updated my Rice prediction the day after the LaTech game if I recall. 

I knew going into the 4th that any scoring would help me... Rice missed the PAT and I started feeling lucky. I was rooting for Rice to score quickly so our 2nd team offense might do something other than take a knee. With 1 minute to go I was embarrassingly interested in a 41-13 game. Knew we needed a kick return TD and, wtf? He's splitting the D? 1st KR TD since 2012? Fuck yeah.

Paid up, then forgot to enter a prediction for both LSU and Rice. Woops. Starting Big 12 play from 173rd place out of 176. Don't call it a comeback.
