2017 GRIDIRON PICK'EM - Week 1, FRIDAY 9/1 deadline

Post by AGinNEIowa » August 6th, 2017, 6:15 pm

WELCOME BACK to Weekly Pick'em and the Who The HELL Cares Game!!!

Weekly Pick'em is 15 games each week - like Kick-Off Pick'em, mainly MWC and Top-25 games chosen by me, so there are sometimes games of my interest thrown in. Each week is open to anyone who's interested, entry can be made through GOOGLE DOCS (link will be provided each week) or you may reply to the weekly thread in The Quad Forum with your pick for who will win each game - straight-up winner, no spreads involved.
Weekly Pick'em games - and prior week results - are usually posted Sunday, and scores are tracked throughout the season. I post year-to-date standings each week as well. I allow for a missed - or throwaway - week, by excluding the lowest score in the final standings. About half way through the season, standings will be posted net of each participant's low scoring week.

The WTHCG is generally a lower division match-up but may include teams from the normal Pick'em parameters. This is a separate competition and these picks are not included in the regular weekly standings.

ENJOY THE GAMES!

Preferred Entry method - Enter your Picks on GOOGLE DOCS, WEEK 1 GAMES Entry Sheet

Secondary Entry method - reply to this thread with each game picked (either retype game # and team - or copy/paste the games and bold the winner - prefer bold, rather than just colors, easier to read).

WTHCG - NCAA DIVISION 3 has this week's match-up. The University of Wisconson-Oshkosh Titans are ranked #4 in the D3Football.com Preseason Poll , after their 13-2 campaign which saw losses at conference mate UW-Whitewater in week 5 and in the D3 Championship game to Mary-Hardin Baylor (10-7). The Titans return 41 letter winners, but only 1 defensive starter - AJ Plewa, a junior CB who had 4 INT's, 1 fumble Recovery and 39 tackles last year. They return 9 offensive starters, and look to be lead by senior RB Dylan Hecker who rushed for 1,142 yards and 17 TD's. The Titans travel from Oshkosh, WI to University Heights, OH to take on the John Carroll University Blue Streaks.
The Blue Streaks finished 2016 with a 12-2 record bookended by losses to the Titans (33-14 and 10-3 in the D3 semi-finals). The Blue Streaks enter the year ranked 8th in the preseason poll and have two Consensus Preseason All-Americans. Mason McKenrick, a senior linebacker, was D3 North Region defensive player of the year racking up 96 tackles (52 solo, 12.5 for loss) with 6 sacks, 7 pass breakups, 2 QB hurries and one fumble recovery. Ray Brown, a junior linebacker, was first team all region and first team all conference after being JCU's most prolific pass rusher - 13 sacks for 91 yards and overall 23.5 TFL's for 109, and 67 tackles last season.
