Week 10: Wrap-Up

Eddie's long slow slide continues through Week 10, dropping another game to Justin.  Week 11 promises great volatility with many differing picks.

Record: 35-17 (67.3%)
The Good:  Nothing went well last week for RBA.  Not a single upset was correct, and the expected number of games was off by two, implying that the picks were too conservative.
The Bad:  Florida State choking away another game against North Carolina.  This marks the second time in as many weeks that the Seminoles have added a -1 to RBA's performance.
The Ugly:  Logic says that Navy-East Carolina should occupy this spot.  However, finishing two games from the bottom of the Prediction Tracker is ugly.  This was a bad week for RBA, and there's no sugarcoating it, even though it only predicted 33.3 correct for the week.

Record: 36-16 (69.2%)
The Good: About the only good thing for this week was that I still managed to pull another game ahead of Eddie. Which brings us to ...
The Bad: This was a bit of a mixed week. There were 20 games that were expected to be close -- the favorite was less than 70% likely to win -- and in those I went 7-13. There were several unlucky bounces, I just didn't suffer as many of them as Eddie.
The Ugly: Oklahoma is letting me down again. Dammit.

Justin: 381-119  (76.2%)
Eddie: 379-121  (75.8%)
