I mean, wow — I totally shat the bed with my Week 3 projection grades. How bad? I managed one-outta-four correct, but I’ll let Discus user “lc” break it down for you as he did on our message board. He does not like me. Sorry dude, we can’t all be sports oracles hiding behind our hoity-toity America Online email addresses.
[Week 3 projections] Please enlighten me. What is your goal with these articles. You come off bitter in them and you just look really bad
Onto the results
Donnell – ESPN – 6 points – Jake O’Donnell – ( over ) – actual results – 2 points. Great Job Jake.
Brian Quick – ESPN – 14 points – Jake O’Donnell – ( under ) – actual results – 12 points.. Great Job jake.
Terrance West – ESPN – 5 points – Jake O’Donnell – ( over ) – actual results – 9 points . Great Job Jake
Pierre Thomas – ESPN – 8 points – Jake O’Donnell – ( over ) – actual results – 11 points. Great Job Jake

ESPN predicted – 33 points for 4 players – actual results – 34 points for 4 players
So im sure you will spin it that ESPN was way off. When they were only off by 1 point for the 4 players that you cherry picked here. Great job Jake

Oh, and thanks for the kind words, message board vigalantes. Your anger tears will make me stronger than you can ever imagine. Here we go…
