While the articles may have taken an extended bye week, the Geeks of Gridiron team has been in full battle royale mode. The leaders after the first two weeks decided falling flat on their faces was a great idea, while proverbial stepping stones have made their way towards the top of the leaderboard. Here’s a week by week review of what has happened since the last article was written.

Week 3 Review
In week 3 the Buzz-Saw outshined everybody else by going 14-2, sawing off the legs of the reigning champ in the process. The champ is feared no longer as Mischievious went an abysmal 9-7, good enough for last place in week 3. The Howitzer, B Hyphen and the Nocturne tied for second, each going 12-4. Triple S went 11-5 while the rookie Diamond Jim went 10-6.

Week 2 Review
Week 1 ended with everyone within two games of each other. After two weeks, the lineup is still the same, with two games still separating the leaders from the bottom feeders of the group. Nobody was able to stand out as the best record for week 2 was 8-8, accomplished by B Hyphen and the rookie Diamond Jim. The .500 performances was enough to put both into the four way tie for first. The reigning champ and Nocturne Tom Deja, both of which led after week 1, went 7-9 in week 2 and are the other two fighting on the top step of the ladder with B Hyphen and the rookie. The Buzz-Saw and Triple S also went 7-9, while the Howitzer double G had a case of bad choices, going 6-10. He’ll look for some medication to remedy the problem in week 3.

Week 1 Review
The reigning champ picked up where he left off last season, atop the leaderboard, as he went 10-6. Deja also went 10-6, giving the reigning champ some much needed competition. The two rookies, Diamond Jim and Howitzer sit in a four way tie for third with the Buzz-Saw and B Hyphen (all 9-7), while Triple S (8-8) is already playing catchup for the second straight season. With 16 weeks left and all combatants within two picks, the minister of the tricycle is still within reach of everyone.

Football has returned for another season, and so has the trike crew, ready to battle each other in the ultimate underground pick ‘em league where buzz-saws force deep incisions, monsters prey on their “frenemies” and the rest play Rambo, looking for the right time to strike. In other words, a group of friends choose the winner of every NFL game every week during the regular season for bragging rights.

The second season of GoG saw a 1st year picker become the minister of the tricycle. Will the same hold true for the third season?  Five of his closest foes don’t “Bo-lieve” so.

Geeks Of Gridiron – Final Standings: Johnathan “Mischievious” McCumber is Your Champion

2013-minister-of-the-trike
Despite being new to Geeks Of Gridiron this season, Johnathan “Mischievious” McCumber wasted no time making it known that he wasn’t the average picker. He blasted out of Week 1 with 13 correct picks and never went below 6 correct picks the rest of the way to seal his first ever Minister Of The Trike Championship. Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley recovered from his last place finish a year ago, but still found himself 6 games behind MI. Thomas Deja followed up last year’s second place finish in third place.

Congratulations are due to MI, who we hope will return next season to defend his Minister Of The Trike Title!
