Copanut Reclaims Title for 2020 Season

Tuesday, January 26, 2021 Posted by

Yes, it was a strange season with very high highs and very low lows, but one good thing came out of it: the Ballers’ Trophy comes back home to where it belongs. 
Here were the guesses on number of wins:

Steelers Rats Stains Bungles Playoffs
Actual 12 11 11 4 0
ESPN 12 12 7 7 0
MWalsh26 11 12 9 5 4
copanut 13 12 8 4 3
steelersfan58 11 12 0 0 4
tennbob 13 13 10 6 3
JAMESH 16 11 9 7 3
EstimatedProphet 10 12 6 5 2

Although we were all rooting for JAMESH to get the win (and it looked promising for 11 weeks) it just was not to be.

Here is the final tally of results, which is the difference between estimated and actual results. Low score wins:

Steelers Rats Stains Bungles Playoffs Total
Actual 12 11 11 4 0
ESPN 0 1 4 3 0 8
MWalsh26 1 1 2 1 4 9
copanut 1 1 3 0 3 8
steelersfan58 1 1 11 4 4 21
tennbob 1 2 1 2 3 9
JAMESH 4 0 2 3 3 12
EstimatedProphet 2 1 5 1 2 11

As you can see, copanut tied ESPN for the best prognostication. Although ESPN is the only entry that was exactly correct on the Steelers, copanut was closer with the Stains. Other differences cancelled out. MWalsh26 and tennbob were close behind with a score of 9. The dirty hippie might have won but failed to give guesses across the division and thus lost out. I gave him the courtesy of a guess for the Rats at 12 wins since he predicted they would finish ahead of the Steelers, but even that was not enough.

Better luck to all of us, in every way, for 2021.

 

Good news – bad news (if you believe ESPN)

STEELERS vs. TEXANS        33–20
STEELERS @ TITANS           31–21
STEELERS vs. EAGLES         15–10
STEELERS vs. BROWNS      27–10
RATS vs. STEELERS             30–10

BENGALS vs. STEELERS   23–20
STEELERS vs. COLTS         22–20
BROWNS vs. STEELERS    23–10

Pittsburgh’s Mt. Rushmore

Wednesday, May 13, 2020 Posted by

From The Athletic

My vote was for: Lemieux, Clemente, Greene, and Palmer. Monument to be erected on the backs of Honus Wagner, Josh Gibson, and The Chief, and a statue of Crosby gazing up. While we’re at it, maybe one of Troy Polamalu leaping over top of the whole lot of them, glorious mane flying in the wind…
