We said last week that the ThisWeekSPORTS.com staff was divided like it rarely has been before with two games having 8-7 votes and five others being 9-6.

The result was six staffers finished with at least 10 correct picks, led by Steve Blackledge and Jeff Stevenson, as both went 12-3. Blackledge moved into a first-place tie with Frank DiRenna at 23-7 overall. Stevenson and Eric Frantz are one game back at 22-8.

And three staffers had sub-.500 marks.

As for our Lone Wolf picks – games in which one panelist has picked against the other 14 – the staff went 0-1, with John Hulkenberg coming up short on his longshot.

Scott Hummel has both Lone Wolf picks for Week 3. Hummel, who’s 0-1 on such picks this year, took Dublin Jerome over Dublin Coffman and Teays Valley to beat Canal Winchester.

“Sooner or later, I’m getting one of these right,” he said.

Guess we’ll see if it’s sooner or later.

Enjoy Week 3!
