Hognostication Playoffs 2014 - Wild Card Round

Postby Deadskins » Wed Jan 01, 2014 10:28 pm

Sorry for the delay getting this out. I'm on vacation with my family, all their spouses and children in the outer banks, and frankly I haven't even really been thinking about THN these last few days, even with Shanny getting fired. But I have obligation to the THN community. So here we go.

First let me say congratulations to Darth, our first repeat champ. Great year! You were at the top or very near the entire season. Here are the final scores, for the record:

Code: Select all
1   DarthMonk           166
2   ACW*               165
3   Markshark             160
4   Redskin In Canada   158
5   david jenkins         156
6   tribeofjudah            155
7   Irn Bru               154
7   Justice Hog            154
9   Countertrey            151
10   SkinsJock            149
11   Deadskins            146
12   blowwad            143
12   gushogs            143


Now, we have a tie situation at the #12 spot, so Darth, if you could tell me which one won under the Monday night, tie-break rules, that player will be the one to move on. Also, some of you did not use your THN name, so if you could tell us who you are, that'd be great.

This year, rather than have conferences, we are just going to have a tournament of these 12 players. The top four seeds get a bye. Then 12 will play at 5, 11 @ 6, 10 @ 7, and 9 @ 8.

Home field advantage is given by making the visiting team pick first. There will be two deadlines for getting picks in, one for the visitors and one for the home team. This week the visitors' deadline is 12:00 NOON, EST on Friday. Normally, it would be earlier, but I'm getting a late start. You are picking the winner of each game, and a point total for the entire weekend. Once a visitor has made his picks, he can change his picks as often as he'd like, up until the home team has made his picks, EVEN IF THE VISITORS' DEADLINE HAS NOT PASSED. The home team can not make their picks until the visiting team has done so, or the visiting team's deadline has passed. But once the home team has picked, the visiting team's picks are locked. The home team's picks don't lock until five minutes before the first game of the weekend (the home team's deadline). There is one new wrinkle this year. The home team's total score prediction can not be an even number difference from the visiting team's total. (Visitors say 121, home team can't say 123. This way, no ties) Whole numbers only.

This weekend's games:

Sat, Jan 4th

4:35 KC @ IND
8:10 NO @ PHI

Sun, Jan 5th

1:05 SD @ CIN
4:40 SF @ GB

Happy Hognosticating.

8:10 NO @ PHI - Saints

Sun, Jan 5th

4:40 SF @ GB - 49ers

We are very fortunate to have Kirk Cousins but Griffin has a huge upside IMO

Robert needs to continue to get better and to do that he needs time on the field - hopefully sooner than later

I guess I'm in the playoffs then? Am I home or away? And if I'm home, who am I waiting for to post their picks?

I'm fairly sure you're playing me but you could be up against Countertrey - whichever, you & Justice Hog are at "home" ... :D

I just did some calculations. gushogs gets in ahead of blowwad for a better overall performance on MNF point predicitons. For the same reason, Justice Hog is the #7 seed and Irn Bru is the #8 seed.
