*CORRECTION* Someone has pointed out that GoRammies actually picked the Zoomies by 11, not by 7, and I'll be adjusting the bonus point accordingly this afternoon (sorry, LoboJo).
Hey y'all - Week 2 is now in the books, and rebelfan1 pulled off our first undefeated week. For that, he'll receive a bonus point in the overall standings, and much praise from the MWC community.
Moving on, however...
Air Force - BYU was nowhere near as close as anyone thought.
The biggest margin of victory that anyone predicted for the Zoomies was 7, so the bonus/tiebreaker point there goes to LoboJo, whose prediction was closest in terms of points scored (he said 28-21, which mirrors the 49 points scored in the 35-14 AF victory).
Since the number of MWC games each week varies, there's going to be a new (fair) way of calculating everyone's MWC standing while still allowing for everyone's worst 2 scores to be dropped. Each week, I'll be calculating the winning percentage of everyone's MWC picks, and averaging them with the other weeks. For example, I'll show you how my own MWC score was calculated:
In Week 1, I went 8-2 in MWC play (.800). In Week 2, I went 6-1 (.857) in MWC play. Thus, I added .800 and .857, and divided by 2 (the # of weeks played) to get .829. Make sense? Good.
With that said, here's Week 2's Standings and Picks:
