      Both games are now official, thanks for the heads up on this it's appreciated.

      Looks like trouble is a brewin' with the game now scheduled for next Tuesday. Since nearly half of the contestants have already submitted picks for week 16 we can't include this game in the current week. Also, since it's unlikely the entire field will have picks turned in by game time Tuesday, it's not realistic to include this game in week 17 either. Subsequently, the commissioner has decided that the Tuesday, Feb 1 game featuring Northern Michigan at Michigan Tech will be excluded from this year's Pick 'Em contest. The Tuesday, Feb 8 game will be included in week 17.

      Carry on.

          Picking games for weeks that have already happened is a strategy I haven't seen before. Regardless, you're good for this week.

            I am extremely late to join the pick 'em this season - I only started 3 weeks back.

            So in my head, I'm sorting your list by "Points %" - so being DEAD LAST on the list doesn't look quite so bad That jumps be from LAST to FIRST! Just a really small sample size!

              There's a cutoff on number of games entered (minimum of 75% of the season) for "Bringin' Home the Beagan," but you're right, if you'd started at the beginning of the season you'd probably be in the top 10 depending on how your bonus play figured into the mix. Good news is right now you're in line for a playoff spot, probably going up against the #2 seed in Round 1 who is currently SweeneyHawksHockey.

                The week 16 tri-winners with 21 out of 24 points were Manurespreader, MTUHuskyGold, and SectionP. No movement at the top of the leaderboard though mikeeddy19 has tied Bronco Hockey Fan and is now knocking on the door for a #1 playoff seed along with John J. MacInnes, Critical Thinker, and Manurespreader.

                In the Battle for the Beagan, Bronco Hockey Fan leads by 1 game over TUPD and 2 games over giwan. MTUHuskyGold is 5 games out and will need some help along the way to get back in this thing.
                Code:
                Contestant          Pick %
                Bronco Hockey Fan    .710
                TalonsUpPuckDown     .705
                giwan                .699
                MTUHuskyGold         .672
                SweeneyHawksHockey   .671
                Week 17 is shaping up to be rather uninspiring based on the matchups so we'll do a St. Thomas 2-for-1 to try and mix things up a bit. Picking St. Thomas to win on either night is worth double points this week! That's 6 points for a regulation or OT win, 4 points for S/O win, 2 points for a S/O loss. The bonus is back for the rest of the year. We are down to 4 weeks in the season.

                  Bump. Missing some regulars who are likely still shoveling/plowing their driveways.

                    While we wait for the results of Tuesday's Tech/NMU game, we'll kick off week 18. Week 17 results will be posted Tue/Wed.

                    Here's the first Pick 'Em Bracketology sneak peak. Seedings and matchups are based on game results through Saturday/yesterday and do not include this week's bonus or the year end team/goal bonus from week 1. As of now there are 31 regular participants which gives the top seed (currently giwan) a first round bye. Some pretty interesting matchups as things stand now.

                          Tech's shellacking of an undermanned Northern Michigan team finally brings a close to week 17. And what a week it was with 8 contestants picking up some serious bonus points. Our week 17 winner, who correctly guessed a cool 100 total points (goals and assists) on the week, is Bronco Hockey Fan who, with a total of 27 points, has catapulted into second place in the standings and now sits only two points behind giwan. Other big point earners who charged up the leaderboard include iwearpurple-26, beaverhockeyfan-25 and puckdude40-22. Here's the bonus breakdown:
                          Code:
                          Contestant         Points
                          Bronco Hockey Fan    10
                          iwearpurple           9
                          beaverhockeyfan       8
                          puckdude40            8
                          potternmu             6
                          GoNanooks             4
                          MTUHuskyGold          4
                          Wi.HuskiesFan         3
                          While the bonus provided big movement on the leaderboard, everyone chasing the right to Bring Home the Beagan made identical picks so there is no movement in this race.

                          The updated scoreboard now reflects tie breakers. Week 18 is well underway. With playoffs just around the corner, be sure to get those picks in!

                              With 21 points the week 18 co-winners were mbeneke and iwearpurple who, with this performance, has cracked the top 4 and now holds a grip on a #1 playoff seed. Stick taps go out to giwan and iwearpurple who each correctly picked the winners of all 6 games this week. The bonus results were 11 away goals, 28 home goals, and zero one-goal games with the points payouts as follows:

                              With two weeks left, the Battle for the Beagan is turning into a 3-person race.
                              Code:

                              giwan               .710
                              The bonus for the last two weeks will be the same and is one you've recently seen. The standings below reflect the current playoff seeding.

                              BHF: The announcers during the Tech/Northern game mentioned the Pick 'Em's yearly bonus goal and that Tech might be able to tie Mankato for the most goals scored in a league game.

                                Our mid-week thread bump will focus on the Battle for the Beagan. While iwearpurple is still mathematically in the race, overcoming 7 games with only 16 games remaining will be crazy difficult. Bronco Hockey Fan holds a 1 game lead over TUPD and a 2 game lead over giwan.
