Quote of the day
"Everybody's on the same page, everybody's playing together and everybody's playing smart. When we play like that, no one can stop us." -- Indiana guard Lance Stephenson, who garnered a triple-double in the Pacers’ win over Memphis, advancing the team record to 8-0 for the season
It was a tough weekend for Football Pickoff, as only 33% of active slates posted positive scores. The top score was a monster, though, as LadyLazarus posted 12 correct picks for 637 points, almost 200 points over the runner-up for the weekend. Since this result raised her season total from -185 to 452, you might say that LadyLazarus was raised from the dead – at least for now.
There are only three weeks to go in the regular season of the RIFC leagues. Eight of fourteen teams make the playoffs, including the top six teams by W-L record, plus two other teams with the most points scored over the season. Typically, a winning record is sufficient to advance; in the last five years, only one winning team (14-12) failed to advance in the top RIFC league. So if you’re in an RIFC league, keep pressing for those wins!
