Week 12 was a strange week in the TBU Pickin Challenge so I thought the results deserved a post instead of just lumping them in with this week’s. For the first time this year, no picker selected a POTW winner and had a winning record in bonus picks. This was a devestating blow to the hordes of all-in pickers hoping to pick up a bunch of extra points, especially in a week when the front runners faltered. On top of that, TB lost my POTW but went 5-0 on bonus picks for a weekly total of “50”. This tied the all-in POTW winners, but as you know there is a firm rule that no POTW loser can score as much as a POTW winner. So everybody with a POTW winner was given sufficient bonus points to get them to “51”, resulting in a 10 way tie for first for the week between Buzz, Zeek, Irv, MD, BR, TKH, Fig, JLM, Coach TJ (the biggest beneficiary by far of TB’s pickin with 19 free points) and Q. Everybody else lost their POTW with FF bringing up the rear by tacking on a 1-4 bonus tally. The TBU went 10-10 on POTW’s in Week 12.
I’m working on Week 13 now and will have it posted soon.
