Game Predictions (Week 3)

A year ago, Dave Purpura joined the staff of ThisWeekSPORTS.com a few weeks into the season and his standing among the panel, which also includes Eric Frantz, managing editor of JJHuddle.com, was based on percentages.

It seems he wants to make his positioning a little easier to figure out this season.

In the second week, Purpura posted a 13-2 record to improve to 24-6 for the season. He has a two-game lead over Frantz (22-8 overall, 11-4 last week) and Scott Hennen (22-8, 10-5), followed by Andy Resnik (21-9, 10-5), Patrick Dolan (21-9, 10-5), Aaron Blankenship (20-10, 10-5), Frank DiRenna (20-10, 9-6), John Hulkenberg (19-11, 8-7), Brad Emerine (18-12, 8-7), Jarrod Ulrey (18-12, 7-8), Don Delco (17-13, 9-6) and Lee Cochran  (13-17, 7-8).
