‘Play The House’ results: Michigan’s run game silent, other than Isaac

NCAA Football: Cincinnati at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Hello! Without further ado, here are the results from this weekend:

There were a lot of guesses for John O’Korn, Donovan Peoples-Jones, and Chris Evans in the receiving department that did not pay off for the players, despite low guesses in all those categories. On the flip side, this is the second week I predicted a big game by Karan Higdon, only to be massively disappointed - Higdon has given the players 1,000 points over the last two weeks after putting up 41 total yards in two games, a far cry from the 207 I have projected.

I was also too clever by half in the running game - Ty Isaac was the only one who broke 100 yards, and I was glad to see him get the spotlight after the long journey to a starting role (at least for now, with Evans right behind him) - but Chris Evans and Karan Higdon offered 50 points to anyone who bet ‘under’ on their rushing production. The receiving game yielded relatively little for the players, though, with Kekoa Crawford being the big pay day of the group. Overall, Week 2 produced -362 points total, so a rough day for the players.

Next week, I’ll do more detailed breakdowns of which areas have been my weakest as the House and which Michigan players have yielded the most (and the least) points. It’ll be next Monday, so you and I have one more go-round before I break down my biggest weaknesses so far. :)

Now, on to the long-awaited season-long standings (downloaded version here):

You may find a correlation between those with the most points and those with stickers on the left - that signifies participation in both weeks. So for those of you who don’t feel like you can catch up over the next 10+ games, or that it’s not worth it to get involved at this stage, I’d encourage you to throw your hat in the ring (again). This is the most fun when a lot of people participate.

And lastly, I do have to give congratulations to Playoff bound, who received the first perfect score in this game. We’ll see how common that ends up being.
