Last Week: (6-0)
Season: (44-16, 73%)
Talk
about a comeback. Down three games with six to go I made up ground and
caught Greg Billing in Week 10. It took a perfect performance and that’s
what I got. Have to thank Northmont, Piqua and Springfield Shawnee for
thier big wins.

DDN 2012 Pickers Final Standings
Eric Frantz (JJHuddle Managing Editor) 44-16
Greg Billing (Dayton Daily News Reporter) 44-16

COLUMBUS THISWEEK PICKS
Last Week: (14-1)
Season: (114-36, 76%)
I went out with a
bang with another 14-1 week, but it wasn’t enough to catapult into the
upper echelon. I finished mid-pack. Not bad for the first year, but not
good either.

ThisWeek Pickers Final Standings:
Andy Resnik (ThisWeek staff writer) 122-28
Jarrod Ulrey (ThisWeek staff writer) 121-29
Aaron Blankenship (ThisWeek staff writer) 117-33
Don Delco (ThisWeek web producer) 116-34
John Hulkenberg (ThisWeek staff writer) 115-35
Patrick Dolan (ThisWeek staff writer) 115-35
Eric Frantz (JJHuddle Managing Editor) 114-36
Scott Hennen (ThisWeek staff writer) 114-36

OHIO 12 PACK
Last Week: (7-5)
Season: (87-33, 73%)
I
may have gone 20-1 combined in the DDN and TWN contests, but I finsihed
a disappointing 7-5 in the 12-pack. Just shows you how deep Ohio is
this year – and how rivalry games can go either way.
