That was probably the most uneasy weekend of mostly-in-league games I remember witnessing in a while. Upsets from CMU and Ball State was not what a lot of us in the MAC Pick ‘Em community expected to have happen, the Buffalo vs. Ohio game featured only 28 total points through regulation, and Toledo vs. WMU wasn’t incredibly pointsy either.
Out of 40 possible points, just two pickers got exactly halfway there: Da_Gerd and Toledo Seahawks are both this week’s highest scorers with 20 points each.
Everybody else, …not so much.

Unfortunately for the rest of us, Fitz still leads this exercise with 140 points earned with ColinApocalypse still in second at 137, then me at 133, Huron Boy is fourth with 125 points, and E-Scruff is in fifth at 122.
Toledo Seahawks (76)missed the first three Pick ‘Ems this year, but is now ahead of 14 players that participated in the those first three weeks. Keep grinding, new friend.
Including myself, there are nine of us that have played in the Pick ‘Em every week: Fitz, ColinApocalypse, me, Huron Boy, E-Scruff, Mr. 69, Matt Dizzle, Nathan8848, and BenRUdrunkyet. After this weekend with 15 points gained by each of Matt Dizzle, Nathan8848, and BenRUdrunkyet, everybody mentioned in this paragraph have at least 100 points on the year. Yay us!
Also above the 100-point line: Da_Gerd (109) and Karp (106).
