PREDICTOR OF THE WEEK                      
Blake Vasquez      157    9-6
          BOB SCHOLL'S LEAD TRIMMED TO 5 - DICK HAMMERSTROM POW
       Bob 'Cap' Scholl gave up the lead on Wednesday then took the lead back on Friday but gave  
       up most of his lead when Wisconsin beat OSU.  Three Slagles are in close pursuit, all within 18      
points.  Only 48 points separate the top 7 predictors in a wide open race.  All 3 Slagles led at some
point in the last two weeks.
      Al Manzey and Blake Vasquez were the only predictors to pick 9 winners as only Jim Slagle and
Phil Hensley were able to pick as many as 7 winners in 15 games.  Blake Vasquez used his
excellent point spreads to earn Predictor of the Week honors and moved up three place to 5th,
only 23 points out of the lead.  Great predicts Blake.  Blake as easily our youngest predictor
(around 23).   His two key picks were the Lakers over Phoenix and Tennessee over Memphis.  
      The Odds only beat 2 predictors and would be 8th if counted as a predictor.  One safe prediction,
they will finish higher than 8th!!
     We only predicted 42% of the games correctly easily worse than the prior worst of 59% in week 5.
     Week  8 is due Tuesday, February 26th.  Games start on Wednesday.
