Chris Dufresne

A 3-3 week left Rankman & Son at 38-38-2 overall with two weeks left to make this a season to almost remember. TEAM TMG continues to make point-spread hay with an overall record of 198-175-9 for the season. Mr. College Football continues to shine with his overall mark of 46-30-2 while Herb Gould (41-34-3) stays one half-step ahead of Locksmith (41-35-2). Rankman & Son continue to ride the razor's edge while Jersey Guy, at 32-38, remains the only TMG picker under water and faces an almost must-sweep weekend to show his face at the annual TMG Post-Season Awards Banquet.
