Crazy Legs XV - Recap
That’s it ladies and gentlemen. The fifteenth installment of Crazy Legs is finally over.
We can now officially declare Grayson Grainger a 2x Champion. Here is the current list of past champions.
- – John Stephens
- – Crazy Legs ‘himself’
- – Trevor Turner
- – Grayson Grainger
- – Adam Beres
- – Mike Willis
- – Brad Russell
- – Josh Hancock
- – Josh Hancock (2)
- – Paul Stephens
- – Josh Hancock (3)
- – Matt Dean
- – Trevor Turner (2)
- – Rick Wampler
- – Grayson Grainger (2)
Grayson clinched the championship after Navy won their bowl game with an impressive 309 victories on the season. As stated, this marks Mr. Grainger’s second Crazy Legs Championship and he now joins a small, elite club of Crazy Legs veterans..
One thing I did notice as GGrainger marched his way into the Crazy Legs history books.. It always seems to come at the expense of JP Levonick.. Grayson’s previous championship (CLIV) occured in 2008 and was the result of the “greatest collapse”.. This season JP was steamrolling the competition until the 8th week when he hit a wall and never recovered.. At that point Turf Dawgs took the lead, only to be outgained by GGrainger shortly thereafter.. From that point on, GGrainger kept the lead and clinched the victory on December 31st.. So, the point is this… If JP gets out to an early lead, or holds the lead late in the season, the eventual winner will be GGrainger!! Anyway, congrats on the championship G-Homie..
Rounding out the top three included two veterans that are very familiar with Championship runs.. Three time champion Hancock finished in third place with 302 victories and “always a bridesmaid, never a bride” Turfdawgs took second place with 307 victories. Congrats to both of you on the great seasons.. Maybe next year TurfDawgs will be able to get over the hump and close it out!! Doubtful, but hey anything can happen..
The bowl games certainly provided some excitement as well.. If Clemson won, DaddyT would have won outright with Jayhawk finshing second.. But that did not happen.. The South Carolina Tiger’s weren’t able come away with a victory in New Orleans, leading to a tie between JayhawkG and the aforementioned DaddyT.. Mr. T figured that the two highest scoring offenses in football would only combine for 48 points.. Well, LSU scored 42 and victory went to Mr. Jayhawk G… Congrats Jayhawk on the big win at the end.. It may not be as sweet as the “big one”, but it is satisfying nonetheless and may create some momentum for next season..
Next season will be here before you know it and GoHawksGo started preparing for it in November.. Mr. Hawks Go decided about mid-way through the fall that he was throwing in the towel.. But he didnt just give up and quit.. He took it like a man and decided to go out in style.. The Hawks finished the season by trying, yes trying to lose.. Trying to lose in order to be the Beno of the Year.. Trying to be the Beno to get a free entry into Crazy Legs XVI.. Well, Hawks you were successful. Your 243 correct picks this year seperated you and Caleb by six and punched your ticket into Crazy Legs XVI.. Congratulations Hawk on the terrible year.. Let’s hope you can turn this free entry into a championship and become the fourth person to have multiple championships to their name..
Ok folks, that’s it for Crazy Legs this year.. Thank you to all the veterans who keep coming back and thank you to the newbies, if any for joining this year.. I always have a goal to make Crazy Legs better and this year I and going to “try” to create a standalone site for Crazy Legs updates and historical information.. Until then, everyone enjoy the beginning of 2020 and we will see you in August!
Crazy Legs - Week Eighteen Recap
We’ve made it through another season of Crazy Legs.. All the picks are in and it’s up to the football gods to decide our fates..
The Wife came through in the clutch for week 18.. The Wife correctly picked 13 of the 16 game slate to earn her second victory of the season.. I guess one for her entry fee and, since I obviously wasn’t going to win, another for my entry fee.. Congratulations to The Wife for helping the family to… almost break even..
Our Second half winner for Crazy Legs 15 is Mr. Woodcraft..
Woodcraft, edged out 573Prez(3x champ) and GGrainger (1x champ) by two and three, respectively.. Congrats on the win Woody and good luck trying to hang on to third place overall.
The current top three for the overall championship (thru yesterday’s games) is:
- GGrainger – 298
- TurfDawgs – 295
- Hancock573 – 291
Its going to come down to the bowl games and quite possibly the championship game if things fall TurfDawgs’ way.. Otherwise, GGrainger could have the championship sewn up today.. Good luck to everyone who’s chasing the crown or chasing a placement in the top three. The merged standings, through yesterday, were attached to the notice email I sent.
For the first time in four week’s we have a new Beno of the Week.. This week Caleb2022 unseated GoHawks Go for the bottom spot in the standings.. Caleb’s impressive 6 games correct helped him steal one from GoHawks, but I dont think it will be enough to capture the Beno of the Year.. The current bottom standings are:
- Go Hawks – 239
- Caleb2022 – 244
- AT – 274
- GottaLuv – 274
Now we just wait.. No more picks to make.. It is up to destiny to determine if GGrainger will win his second crown or TurfDawgs will be hoisting his first Championship.. Good luck to everyone.. I will provide a merged standings update over the weekend..
Crazy Legs - Week Seventeen Recap
Quick Christmas Eve recap..
This week three tied at the top with thirteen.. NoPryor, GottaLuv and Woodcraft each picked 13 of 16 correct, but only one could win.. NPK came within 9 points of the Monday Night Total to earn the weekly prize. Congrats No Pryor on sneaking one in at the end..
The current overall standings, through this morning are:
- Grainger – 276
- TurfDawgs – 273
- WoodCraft – 270
- WoodCraft – 127
- 573Prez – 124
- Grainger – 122
Now that the bowl games are underway and everyone is current with payment, here are the remaining prizes and amounts.
- Week 18 – $50
- Second Half – $100
- Bowl Game Champ – $200
- Bowls Second – $60
- Overall Champ – $500
- Overall 2nd – $175
- Overall 3rd – $100
What we like to call the forgotten major, the Beno of the Year, is most likely to be resting in Iowa for the off-season.. Go Hawks has opened up a four game lead on Caleb after taking home his fourth consecutive Beno of the Week.. Well done sir.. Good luck closing it out..
Ok folks, last picks of the season are due before 1PM on Sunday.. This is the final entry for the season, good luck..
Crazy Legs - Week Sixteen Recap
Bowl Game picks must be in by 2:00PM on Friday, December 20th!!! That is this Friday!! Slightly more than 60 hours from now!!
Only 32 NFL games and the Bowl games remain between now and crowning a Crazy Legs Champion.. Will it be Crazy Legs IV Champ GGrainger, will we have a new Champion with TurfDawgs, or will we witness an amazing comeback from someone in the 4-5 games back range..
Grainger pulled ahead of Turfdawgs this week by one game. He now leads 259-258 headed down the home stretch. This week is the most important week of the year during the Championship run.. 57 picks will be made in total. Only sixteen will be made next week. This week will make or break a Champion.. Good Luck fellas!!
The second half champ is also shaping up as a two horse race.. 3X Crazy Legs Champion 573Prez and Mr. Woodcraft are knotted up with 114 apiece.. Two others are tied at 111, but with only 32 picks it seems one of the aforementioned two will take it home..
I have no idea how this week didn’t end with a tie necessitating use using last week’s records. Twelve people were tied with 12 correct picks.. But Crazy Legs V Champion Adam Beres came within three points of the MNF total to earn his first win of the season.. Congrats Mr. Beres on sneaking on in late..
When you work by email as 95% of your communication, any saved typing is a bonus.. This week and last, Go Hawks Go has saved me from entering different characters into the Beno of the week.. Yes, GHG has earned another well deserved Beno award and now has a commanding lead for the Beno of the Year.. The Hawks, has opened up a three game lead on Caleb 2022 and is looking to runaway with the coveted Beno of the Year award.. Good luck continuing to be really bad Paul!!
Ok folks, games are up.. This week is due before the 1:00PM NFL game on Saturday.. Good Luck!!
Don’t forget your bowl games are due by 2:00PM this Friday!!!!!
Crazy Legs - Week Fifteen Recap
This is it folks.. The college football regular season is over. We have three more “shortened” weeks and the bowl games remaining. As it stands right now, the Championship is a two horse race, with a twist.. TurfDawgs and GGRainger are tied with 247 and third place is 5 games back. Unless we have a massive choke or a bowl game miracle, one of these two will be crowned Crazy Legs Champion.. Unless of course TurfDawgs forgets his picks again.. He has used up all of his Autopicks.. A miss now is a guaranteed zero for the week, so he needs to have his priorities straight for three more weeks!!! Good luck to both of you
FYI – If you have not activated your entry on the Bowls page, due so NOW!!! The first bowl game is December 20th!!! The Pool ID# is 53528.
Second Half Update
The current second half top three are below.. Remember, this does not include the bowl games..
- 573Prez – 102
- WoodCraft – 102
- Two tied with 99
This past week we were treated to a blast from the past.. Three time Crazy Legs Champion, Hancock573, aka 573Prez took home the weekly prize.. He selected 22 correct and found himself in a three way tie after Monday night.. His two point differential on the tiebreaker was enough to earn him a better late than never victory.. Congrats Hancock on getting a much needed win on the season..
I never thought I would be this excited watching the Beno of the Year chase.. But Caleb and GoHawks have turned this into an intriguing battle in the basement.. This past week Go Hawks correctly, er maybe incorrectly, hell I dont know.. He got 4 right out of 25 to edge Caleb, 6, for the Beno of the week. This win, or loss, puts Go Hawks in the driver’s seat for beno of the year.. He is currently three games ahead, or behind, of Caleb for the ultimate prize.. Congrats Hawks on the Beno award this week and good luck the rest of the way… It will be interesting to see how these two play out on the bowl games.. Is Beno of the Year more valuable than the bowl game pot? We are about to find out..
Ok folks, games are up.. In before the Army/Navy game at 3PM on Saturday.. Good Luck
Crazy Legs - Week Fourteen Recap
Well, at least someone in our family has what it takes to win in Crazy Legs.. Although she could have done it without all the drama.. She entered Sunday night with a two game lead. Then entered Monday night with a one game lead. At the conclusion of the Monday night game, she was tied for first. The explosion of offenses in the MIN/SEA game were the difference. She was eight points closer than EA, to earn our family’s first win of the season.. Congrats to the wife on the victory and regaining some of our pride.
The season races are also heating up.. Yes, I said races.. We have the championship race, the second half race and we have the race for the Beno.. In the championship race, TurfDawgs has pulled ahead by two games with four weeks and the bowl games remaining.. Per Crazy Legs formula, that reduces the realistic championship contenders to four. They are:
- Turf Dawgs – 228
- GGrainger – 226
- EJED – 223
- Poolman – 222
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that nobody else can win. It is just the odds are against you being behind by more games than week’s remain.. We have four weeks and the bowl games remaining. Allowing a two game swing for the bowl games equals six. If you are behind by more than six, the odds are not in your favor.. Regardless, good luck to everyone in the top ten the rest of the way..
The second half race is also heating up.. The current standings for the second half are:
- WoodCraft – 81
- 573Prez – 80
- 3 tied with 79
Remember, this race DOES NOT include the bowl games. It concludes with week 18.
And perhaps the most intriguing race of all is the race for the Beno of the Year. I think this is the first time in history that more than one person is actively trying for the Beno of the Year. Those standings currently are:
- Go Hawks – 206
- AT – 206
- Caleb2022 – 207
Although, I am not completely sure AT is trying to lose, I know for a fact that Caleb2022 and GoHawksGo want that free entry..
In week fourteen we had a tie for the Beno award.. Caleb and GoHawks each had 11 correct out of 25. But Go Hawks’ final score for the MNF game sealed the deal. Mr. Hawks, entered a 10 for the final total in MNF. Yep, a ten. This was proof positive that he is chasing the Beno of the Year and the prize that accompanies it.. SO, congratulations to you on the achievement and good luck to you in your quest for failure.
Ok folks, games are up.. In by NOON Saturday… Good luck!!
Crazy Legs - Week Thirteen Recap
Week 13 is in the books.. The run for the championship is beginning to take shape.. We have five weeks plus the bowl games remaining..
TurfDawgs currently holds the slimmest of leads over Crazy Legs IV Champion Grainger.. A one game lead currently separates the two.. The rest of the pack, well the ones that have a shot, includes only one former champ.. Last years winner, Rick Wampler is the only other former champion with a chance..
Rounding out the top 8, is Crazy Legs veteran WoodCraft.. Woodcraft used his week 13 victory to push himself to the outer edge of contention for the championship.. WoodCraft correctly picked 18 games this week and his tiebreaker was 2.3 points closer that Mr. Gregory Sponseller… Congrats on the week Mr. Wood and good luck closing out the season..
Another belated congratulations is due, and this may be the reason Mr. Sponseller was in contention this week.. Mr. Sponseller officially became Mr. and Mrs. Sponseller and couple weeks ago.. A belated congrats to you sir, and good choice letting her make your picks this week..
And of course our week 13 Beno.. I believe Caleb2022 has decided that he is throwing in the towel and going for back-to-back Beno of the Year awards.. Caleb correctly guessed 11 games this year to earn the weekly Beno, but its his overall goal that I am looking at.. He currently sits 5 games above last place for the season.. This is attainable Caleb.. You can become the first two-peat Beno of the Year.. Good luck to you fine sir..
Ok folks, games are up.. In by Noon on Saturday.. Good Luck.
Crazy Legs - Week Twelve Recap
Six weeks remain and the field of potential contenders for the championship has been reduced to eight.. This, of course, using the Crazy Legs rule of thumb..
At the top we have Turf Dawgs with 196 correct picks on the season. He is a seasoned veteran that is certainly due for a championship.. But does he have what it takes?
At number two, with 193 correct, is Crazy Legs IV champions Grainger.. He’s proven that e has what it takes to win, but does he still have it after 11 years?
At three, we have a tie.. CSGodwin and Poolman 62.. CS is one of my favorite players. One, because she is a she, and two, is because she routinely whoops Mr. Godwin.. That brings a smile to my face every year..
Tied for third is Poolman62 is a different breed. He is a born and bred Clemson Tiger.. He speaks very highly of Clemson every day I see him at work.. Even in June, this guy is talking about Clemson football.. Oh, only if I kneww him when Clemsoning was still a thing…
Nonetheless, that is our top four right now.. Things can change, and they will, but one of these four will be in contention for the championship in January, so good luck to all of you!!
Now on to the week… EJED, the man, the myth, the legend.. took it down to the wire this week and was able to close it out with his Monday night tiebreaker.. The Jedi, correctly picked 22 games and came within 5.5 points of the tiebreaker to edge out TurfDawgs and Smeritt.. Congrats Jedi on your win in week 12..
Well, I might as well write the check out for week thirteen.. APerry is our Beno this week.. Mr. Perry correctly guessed 16 games this week to finish two behind the next worst player.. Congrats APerry on your Beno of the week, and I will send your payment for the week thirteen victory ASAP..
Ok folks, games up, in by NOON on Saturday.. Good luck..
Crazy Legs - Week Eleven Recap
In what can only be described as the worst week in Crazy Legs history, TWelker has won the weekly pool with a sub .500 record. This is the first time that the weekly winner –full slates only– failed to reach 13 correct picks.. And, I think the worst part is that all 40 of us sucked this bad, collectively..
Officially, TWelker and 573Prez tied for the week. They each had 12 correct and a tiebreaker differential of 7.0. So, we had to go back to last week’s record for the tiebreak. In week 10 Twelk had 18 correct vs. Prez’s 16, therefore crowning Twelker as the week 11 winner. Congrats Mr. Welker on the fair week?
When you have a weekly winner with 12 wins, that can only mean one thing…. That the Beno of the week performed exceptionally bad.. And that was exactly the case with Mr. Chad Lee.. Mr. Lee picked 5 correct games out of 25 this week.. Yes, you read that correctly — 5! He did so poorly that I can list the games he correctly selected,
- Baylor over TCU
- Wisconsin over Iowa
- Baltimore over Cincinnati
- Tampa Bay over Arizona
- Green Bay over Carolina
37 people selected Penn State to beat Minnesota.. Every person in this pool except for one.. Woodcraft, with his superior insight selected the Gophers to beat the Nittany Lions at home.. Now I’m not sure if you had inside info, or you just dislike Penn State but I have my eye on your sir! When we go down, we go down as one.. No running astray from the pack.. Just messing around Woody, great pick and I am just hoping you select Penn State in two weeks..
Ok folks, games are up!!! In by NOON Saturday..
Crazy Legs - Week Ten Recap
It is amazing what one or two weeks can do to the season standings.. At the conclusion of week 7, we were discussing a runaway champion ala Adam Beres in Crazy Legs V.. Now, we have 15 people with a legitimate chance to win the crown.. One of those, ChadLee had an impressive week 10 outing to reinsert himself into the championship conversation..
Chad Lee took week 10 down to the wire, but ultimately prevailed with 19 correct picks. Mr. Lee held off CS and T Welker to earn his first win of the year.. Congrats Mr. Lee on your win and good luck with the season.. You are my dark-horse to win it this year.. I know, that isn’t a surprise..
And of course, as much as this pains me to type.. The Beno of the Week..
This week, there were no ties for the Beno. We had an outright Beno winner… With 10 correct games, this week’s Beno is JPLEVONICK.. Yes, I am serious.. JP earned his first Beno award this season.. The Beno win also removed him from the top of the leaderboard down to the middle of the pack. JP is now tied for 9th place and sites 6 games back of the lead.. Congrats JP on the achievement this week and hopefully you can right this ship and not fall into the oblivion..
Crazy Legs - Week Nine Recap
Oh, JP… I swear you can’t make this stuff up.. You have been a dedicated Crazy Legs veteran since the beginning.. You’ve paid your dues and if anyone is deserving of a big win it is you.. But the cards just weren’t in it for you on the first half..
Yes, it happened again.. What seemed to be an insurmountable lead heading into week 8 slowly diminished and ultimately disappeared.. JP and TurfDawgs eventually tied for the first half prize, but Crazy Legs rules state that the halfway and final winners are determined by previous weeks records.. Well, the previous week was week nine and JP found himself in a 5-way tie for Beno, so….. Congratulations TurfDawgs on the first half championship.. And, JP you still have a shot at the “Big One”, so don’t lose hope yet…
And of course, this week’s winner was none other than Moose Perry.. In typical Moose fashion, Beno last week, winner this week.. It never fails. Moose correctly guessed an impressive 20 games this week to earn the prize.. He tied with three others, but his 1 point differential sealed the victory.. Congrats Moose, and we will see you on the Beno side next week.
I’ll have to admit I was sweating it.. Especially after the college games.. Nobody likes to be Beno and get called out.. And most certainly, you dont want to be Beno and have to call yourself out.. Fortunately, the total score last night saved me the embarrassment.. But i didnt save Jayhawk G….. G found himself in a 5-way tie for Beno only to emerge from the pack as the worst of week 9.. He selected 15 correct games and missed the TB by 7 points.. So, congrats Jayhawk and thank you for being just a little worse than me this week..
Games are up…. Noon Saturday is the deadline.. Good luck!!
Crazy Legs - Week Eight Recap
We are one week away from the halfway point in the season. What appeared to be a landslide first half victory for JP has now become a battle between him and TurfDawgs.. JP holds the slight advantage with a two game lead over Dawgs.. But lets not count out the next four, who only trail the lead by four games.. This week should be a test to see if JP can handle the pressure.. Good Luck to every one on top the leaderboard this week.
The perfect victory, or the worst timing.. Its the middle of the season, you are in the bottom half of the standings with a decision to make. To you begin the process of tanking? Do you switch up your methods and try to climb back in? Or do you just try to win a week and some respect for the year.. While we aren’t sure of the reasoning, you might say that a week 8 victory is the sweetest.. You earn your money back, get a spike in rankings and carry momentum for a second half push. And that’s precisely what CScottNation accomplished..
CScott wrapped it up Sunday night and cruised into the week with a little skip in his step.. CScott’s 20 was enough to CodGod and 573Prez to earn his first win of the year.. Congrats CScott on your firts win and let’s hoope you can build some momentum….
A ‘Moose’ Perry’s life motto is to live and die by the three.. Even in Fantasy Football he is up one week and down the next.. He can put up 200 pts in week 4 only to follow it up with a 76 the next week.. And in the end his record will be 7-7 and he will be the 3rd or 4th pick in draft.. And Crazy Legs is no difference.. One week he’s on top of the world, and the next….. Well he’s the Beno.. Yes, Moose you have earned your first Beno of the Week award.. Your stunning 13 out of 25 tied the previous Beno, Wolfie.. However, you were just bad enough to win sole possession of the greatest award in sports.. The Beno of the Week.. Congrats Moose on the achievement and if the pattern continues, I will be congratulating you on the victory next week..
Ok folks, games are up.. Picks in by NOON Saturday.. Good Luck
Crazy Legs - Week Seven Recap
Only two weeks left in the first half and it looks like JP is going to runaway with the first half crown.. Mr. Levonick currently has a four game lead on GGrainger and TurfDawgs.. Lets see if he can close it out..
Although he is having a great season, his favorite team sure took one on the chin Saturday.. The Dawgs in TurfDawgs is for his beloved Georgia Bulldogs who were beaten, in Athens, by the South Carolina Gamecocks.. Yes a loss at home to an unranked opponent.. Had that happened to a Big Ten team, they would be banned from the playoff for 10 years, but I am sure Georgia will be back in the conversation at the end of the season..
This week we saw a bit of a resurgence in Crazy Legs.. Poolman rose from the ashes to capture his first victory of the season.. The Pool Man had it wrapped up Sunday night and cruised to a two game victory in week 7.. Congrats PoolMan on your first victory of the season.. It was almost as stunning as South Carolina’s.. As a matter of fact, the Gamecock’s have beaten more ranked opponents this season than the Clemson Tigers..
And our beloved Beno this week is Wolfie16.. The wolf just couldn’t muster one more victory to push GSPonseller to the basement so she has earned the right to be called the Beno for one week.. Congrats Wolfie on your achievement!!!
Ok folks, games are up.. In by NOON Saturday.. Good Luck
Crazy Legs - Week Six Recap
Could this be the year? Could JP Levonick finally break the curse and win the Crazy Legs championship? All signs are pointing to yes!
JP Levonick took it to the wire this week with “Moose” Perry, but prevailed in the end by one point. JP’s 18 correct picks and narrow tiebreaker earned him his second weekly win of the season.. JP, you are officially in the black for this season..
This may not be the end of JP’s reign in Crazy Legs XV. He has now opened up a six game lead on second place. But would it be a coincidence to Crazy Legs IV that Grayson Grainger is in second place.. Yes, GG won Crazy Legs 4 as a result of the epic collapse of JP; and now that scenario is perhaps replaying itself before our eyes.. Can JP outlast the competition for another 12 weeks? Or,
Sometimes the Beno of the week is just perfect.. The content writes itself.. This week is a prime example..
This week’s Beno is none other than our good friend Go Hawks Go.. A former champion that has simply fallen by the wayside.. Go Hawks correctly selected 11 games out of the 25 game slate.. And that’s not the worst of what is to come this week..
Penn State travels to the land of endless cornfields to play the Hawkeyes from Iowa this weekend.. So, not only does Mr. Stepehens get to wear the Beno of the Week crown, but he will still be the BOTW when his Hawkeyes get beaten for the sixth straight time.. Yes, Iowa hasn’t beaten Penn State since 2010.. Wow, that’s before my 7 year old son was born.. And, he may be in college before the Hawkeyes beat the Nittany Lions again..
Ok folks, games are up.. In by NOON on Saturday!!! Good luck Iowa..
Crazy Legs - Week Five Recap
Another week, another finish down to the wire.. This one hit home a little.. The Wife and A”Moose”Perry finished the week tied for first and it came down to the Monday night game to settle it.. Unfortunately for us, the Steelers & Bengals are both terrible and could only muster 30 point between them.. This lackluster display of offense gave Moose the victory by five points.. Congratulations on the win Perry…. And I am pretty sure you owe me $50 from something, somewhere in the past…
Not much has changed on the leaderboard as of week five’s conclusion.. We still have a veteran heavy presence with JP Levonick extended his lead to three games of MSchrader.. The top ten still includes four former champions and it doesn’t appear the pressure will let up for JP to maintain.. Good luck JP on staying in the #1 slot..
Last year’s Beno has finally made an appearance in this year’s contest.. Yes, Caleb 2022 correctly selected 11 out of 25 games and fell nine points shy of the tiebreaker to earn his first weekly Beno award.. Congrats Caleb on returning to your comfort zone.. I am starting to wonder if the 2022 attached to his name is his personal prediction to win it all.. Maybe Caleb has some grand scheme cooked up to win the Beno of the Year 4 years straight and ride off into the sunset in year five with a championship.. Only time will tell, but it would seem easier just to win in year one.. Regardless, congrats again Caleb..
Games are up.. Penn State is back on the slate with a tough contest against Purdue.. Get your picks in by NOON on Saturday, good luck..
Crazy Legs - Week Four Recap
In the closest finish of the season to date, CodGodwin barely edges Adam “Moose” Perry by one point on the Monday Night tiebreaker total.. This may have been the closest overall week in Crazy Legs history.. Eight people tied for the lead with 18 and all but one were separated by double digit points.. So, congrats to you Mr. Godwin on the great week. And good luck trying to place ahead of Mrs. Godwin this season.. It would be the first time since Crazy Legs XI, or 2015..
I do want to mention one rule as we progress through the season.. The auto-pick is available to use three times during the season. This allows you to miss a deadline or forget to pick without sacrificing your season. You can not win a weekly prize by auto-picking, however it is a tool for people that may have things occur during the season. Some, people — DaveO (TurfDawgs) — seem to be relying solely on auto-pick this year. The Dawgs have autopicked two of the four weeks.. You have one left before the zeroes start accumulating Mr. Blasingame.. Let’s get it together…
The biggest sigh of relief during the Crazy Leg’s season is when your name is removed from the Beno of the Week award. The Wife can finally put that misery behind her and proceed with winning her customary 2-3 weekly prizes.. This because we have a new owner of the Beno throne..
Based on his, or her username.. Mr(s) seems to be a (wo)man of mystery.. Who is behind the initials? Do we have a celebrity in our midst? We may never know who the real character is behind the initials, but we do know that we can call him/her the Beno for at least one week.. A.T. correctly picked 13 games out of 25 this week to earn their first Beno of the year award.. So, to whomever is hiding behind those letters…. Congratulations on earning yourself a full name for week 4…
Ok folks, games are up.. Picks in by NOON Saturday… No PSU on the sheet this week b/c they play on Friday night.. Yes, Friday. What’s next, Tuesday night following Fuller House.. Ugh.. I dislike regular season college football on any other day but Saturday, but I digress…
Crazy Legs - Week Three Recap
I know its early and alot can happen, but the leaderboard is currently stacked. We have four former champions in the top ten. We have perennial runner-up TurfDawgs in fourth place and 3X champ 573Prez lurking at #13. This is shaping up to be another great season of Crazy Legs… Of course, we all know who I like as my sleeper for the Championship this year, but I will spare him the jinx..
And of course our Beno..
It is with great sorrow that I announce this week’s Beno award.. The Wife took every contest into careful consideration.. And her careful selections yielded 11 correct out of 25.. This will be the Wife’s first, and hopefully last, Weekly Beno Award.. Congrats The Wife on a fantastic week..
Ok folks, games are up… In by NOON on Saturday.. Good Luck!!
Crazy Legs - Week Two Recap
Week two certainly had more intrigue than the first week of the season. We needed both games and the tiebreaker Monday night to crown our weekly champion.. JPLevonick captured his annual weekly win early this year. He edged out Grayson by 6 points on the tiebreaker to earn his money back, well most of it.. That’s the thing about JP, he is Mr. Even Steven. He won’t get Beno, he won’t win the championship, but he will not lose money.. Although, he was pretty close to the championship in Crazy Legs IV until……
Now onto what everyone is waiting for.. Yep, the prize pool for this season. Crazy Legs membership is down a little this year.. Which is always a disappointment, but nonetheless, here are the prizes..
- Champion – $500
- Second Place – $175
- Third Place – $100
- First Half – $100
- Second Half – $100
- Weekly – $50
Bowl Games are kind of fluid and will be determined by additional entries, but as of now,

Oh, and of course the Beno of the Year gets a free entry into Crazy Legs XVI… But the catch is that you can not have a zero during any week.
Don’t worry I didn’t forget you Mrs. Godwin.. I just needed s segue into the subject… Our week 2 Beno CSGODWIN herself. CS correctly picked 14 out of 25 games to earn her first Beno of the 2019 season.. It’s a known fact that Mrs. always bests Mister in the Godwin house.. However, the slow start by CS may just be enough for Mister to finally prevail and this could finally be the year that Mister beats Mrs. in the end of the year standings..
Congratulations on your Beno Award and good luck the rest of the way..
Ok folks, games are up.. In by NOON on Saturday.. Good Luck

Seriously, I mean seriously.. He couldn’t wait until week 4 or 5 to capture his first Beno award?
This is beginning to get out of control Showboatin… Are you even trying? Serious consideration may be giving after this year to rename the award to the “Showboat of the Week”..
Yes folks, it happened again. For the thirtieth time in five years, Mr. Showboat has earned the coveted Beno of the Week award. The Boat picked 15 correct games in the easiest week of the year.. Congratulations Mr. Boat on you achievement.. We all know how the rest of the season goes.. You will win Benosix times, win two weeks for $100 and finish just out of Beno of the year contention..

Crazy Legs - Preseason Announcement
I wanted to try a different approach to this year’s weekly updates. I wanted to be able to embed content, gifs, videos, etc.. that were too cumbersome to send in an email. And I certainly wasn’t going to purchase a new domain and hosting for the updates, so I just created a separate page on my website for the updates.. So I guess, disregard the header info.. Well, unless you are interested in a website or hosting….
I can’t believe Crazy Legs is entering its fifteenth season. It started with just a few people in Pennsylvania in 2005. Now we have nearly fifty people that span over six states..
Here is the list of Past Champions:
There you have it.. Each one of these people have pushed through the grind that is Crazy Legs and emerged victorious.. Some a couple times…
As we move into Crazy Legs XV, I wanted to make some notes for any rookies or people with poor memories..
