B1G Survivor 2022 Week 4

Week 3 brought a lot of drama to the Survivor pool, especially the early games. 37 entrants picked Northwestern to defeat Southern Illinois. As was pointed out in the game thread, while the Wildcats have had decent success vs Illinois recently, they have not fared nearly as well vs the better (directional) teams in their home state. Good luck in the second chance bracket.

Also from the early game thread on Saturday, here is a random sampling of comments, taken completely out of context (bolded emphasis mine):

RockyMtnBlue:

Michigan goes 3 and out on their second possession. Worst team ever.


Dtownk:

B1G if true


RTVF82:

Truth.

Dude. Too far.

In other survivor drama, 4 lucky individuals lived to see another week in the pool by selecting Indiana over Western Kentucky. The Hoosiers needed to score a last minute touchdown in regulation, score a two point conversion to tie, and sweat out a last second field goal attempt by Western Kentucky before escaping with a win in overtime.

10 more competitors narrowly survived picking Rutgers who beat Temple by a mere 2 points. 10 also advanced taking Iowa over Nevada, 1 correctly chose Maryland over SMU, and one took Michigan over UConn. There were 3 eliminations for not picking this week.

Only 26 contestants remain. Here's who's left along with their prior picks in alphabetical order (in parenthesis), followed by Big Ten teams you have picked against in alphabetical order [in square brackets] No one left has picked against a B1G team yet.

I've decided to use US postal codes where possible for abbreviations:

Now for the worst of the worst:

4 people, myself included, incorrectly picked Penn State to lose to Auburn, and 1 came oh so close but just short choosing Western Kentucky over Indiana. Also there was one errant pick of Colorado over Minnesota. There were also 2 eliminations for not picking. So our first 8 contestants have bombed out of the Second chance bracket in week 3. Thanks for the company.

RTVF82 now has the longest streak going in this division at 2 correct picks, hitting on Nebraska losing to Oklahoma. 3 correctly picked a Michigan State loss to Washington while 1 advanced calling a Purdue loss to Syracuse; if there were any money being bet on this, I think there would need to be an investigation on that Boiler game.

The games are listed above in the regular survivor pool section.
