Week 7 Recap

Going into Week 7, the games looked very difficult to pick, even more so if we wanted to actually pick them correctly. There were 18 games on tap to be picked, and although most of us felt like we did awful and the point totals were not there, we ended up picking around .500, which is decent for picking against the spread. In the overall standings, the middle is getting quite close, with the 2, 3, and 4 slots separated by only 26 points, while Ryan still has the lead by over 100 points.

As for the conference games, we're in the part of the schedule where 2 teams get a bye week while the other 8 play each other. Except Tech, we tried playing a bye week in Lawrence. Everyone was able to pick 2 of the 4 games correctly, with us all getting TCU correct and Tech incorrect. After talking all week about how Tech might not cover the 31-point spread, we all ended up picking them to, and spent quite a bit of our confidence points on the pick.
