We are into week 8 of this season and we are now down to only 10 players with correct entries through the first 7 weeks. Here are the lucky 10:
- Drew Roberts
- well versed
- Jennifer Nguyen
Will we have someone make it through the season perfect? I'm already out of it and am just playing for pride now but I'm taking this pick to the bank:
Oregon State over Utah
The Beavers have been good this year. Too bad they weren't like this 2 years ago.
I was happy to see that I still had Oregon State available to pick. Mike Riley has done a great job this year with his team. I would love(!) to see them upset Oregon down the stretch. I think they are a lock to take out the fledgling Utes this week, especially at home.
Nick was eliminated in Week Four
Previous Nick picks: Utah, TCU, Washington, Air Force, BYU, Nevada, San Diego State
LaTech over Idaho
I have been waiting for this no-brainer for weeks. Do you know how nice it is to not have to use your brain in Eliminator? So nice. Pit the nation's leading pinball offense against the nation's leading losers, and it is going to be a recipe for disaster - sweet, delicious, lopsided disaster. What kind of disaster are we talking about? Idaho is currently a 30-point underdog, and that line could probably go up five or 10 points.
Kevan was eliminated in Week Two.
Previous Kevan picks: Air Force, UNLV, Washington State, Utah State, Nevada, Fresno State, San Diego State
Washington over Arizona
This one is far from a gimme and hopefully the Huskies will keep me alive in the eliminator pool. UW has been kinda up and down, but I think they'll be able to put away Arizona. UW still has Warren Moon, right?
Previous Drew picks: Stanford, TCU, Oregon, Boise State, Fresno State, Louisiana Tech, San Diego State
The OBNUG Eliminator challenge is open to anyone and everyone who knows how to use a Google document or begs us really hard in the comments to use a Google document for them.
One big rule: You can't pick the same team twice.
Additional rules are 1) don't cheat and screw with the spreadsheet, 2) make your picks before your game starts, 3) keep playing as long as you want after you pick wrong. All other rules are meaningless to the extent that I cannot remember them now.
Winner gets a free Deuce Brand watch.
Pick. Survive. Gloat. Enjoy.
