Sykotyk will become famous soon enough
2017 OHSAA Last Man Standing Contest (Week 5)

Okay. I'm compiling two weekends here. So go over things to see if I made any mistakes.

First, we're going to go through Week 3. Two players are out. Struthersfan didn't submit picks at all. So, they are out. And 4cards is out because they picked a game with an out-of-state opponent (Steubenville). Blame Canada. (See below, 4cards)

Since there's at least one player out for other reasons, only one participant will be out on points. And that falls on 1oldballcoach, who had picked a margin of 18, but their game ended with a 43 point margin. 25 points was the worst performance of the weekend for Week 3. Buck_98, Dcoach47, and HE74 were close, though, with 21 points.

On the other end, Jaws31 nailed their pick of -18 for their game. Also, EastFan01, hoban2020 and Spread All Day were one point off.

One thing that did crop up with Buck_98's selection. He chose "Crestview by 35". Well, that's ambiguous. There's three Crestviews in Ohio. Luckily, they all won. So, I took the worst result of the three for his margin.

Had he noted their opponent, or their 'zip code city' a la OHSAA convention, I would have had the game precisely. Luckily it worked out for him this week. But, in the future, please be aware I need to know which game you're picking. If I don't, I will figure it out and whichever is the worst outcome will be the result.

Code:

Now, onto Week 4.

Everyone who picked in Week 3 also picked in Week 4. Now, for the unfortunate news. Kyle_E_Woyote was a tad late submitting his actual pick. However, had he picked on time, his pick would have been the worst of the weekend and be out anyways. His pick was -24, and the result was -56 for his game.

Now, for the week, we had some really good picks, and some really bad picks. Dcoach47 is out. He had picked Western Reserve by 41 over Sebring. They won by 68, giving him a margin of 27.

The Lucky Duck of the Week Award is shared by three players. a_td, EagleFan, and TroyTrojans05 were ALL off by 26 points. Squeaking into Week 5 by the skin of their proverbial teeth.

On the other end of the spectrum, nupanther and 4cards were off by 1. TopCat, hoban2020, and Chop Stix were all off by 2 points.

Now, you may have noticed I mentioned 4cards in there. He picked Steubenville vs. an out-of-state school in Week 3, Which should have booted him completely. However, since I wasn't around much the past two weeks and had to roll things over from one week-to-another, I didn't get a chance to catch his error and he went into Week 4 picking a game just as I said (his team had in fact won).

So, he is eligible for Week 5 with a big caveat. I'll get to that.

First, the Week 4 results:

Code:
Pick	Margin	Result	
24	56	32	Kyle_E_Woyote
41	68	27	Dcoach47
30	56	26	a_td
40	66	26	EagleFan
30	56	26	TroyTrojans05
30	7	23	EastFan01
35	56	21	Andy27
35	54	19	Jaws31
45	29	16	danville96
49	35	14	Mean_Green
20	34	14	OmegaTheZip
28	15	13	Worm02
21	33	12	adselder09
28	17	11	FirestoneFan
22	13	9	natihsfan
34	42	8	E.S. Furgeson
37	30	7	HE74
35	29	6	Spread All Day
24	29	5	Buck_98
35	31	4	DaPope
21	25	4	YODA14
30	32	2	Chop Stix
28	26	2	hoban2020
29	27	2	TopCat
28	29	1	4cards
35	34	1	nupanther

For everyone other than 4cards, just remember to get your pick in by 7pm on Thursday, September 21.

For 4cards, the same deadline applies, but to stay in for Week 6, you will need to pick TWO games. AND, your combined margin of your two games will be counted in your weekly score among the participants. (i.e., pick two games, and are off by 3 and 19, your result is: 22)


For all participants, just a reminder now. You must pick in-state games. Both teams must be from Ohio. Stay aware from club teams. But the well known private academies (Western Reserve, etc) will count.

Good luck everyone.
