Thanks again for doing these spreads. This is the highlight of this thread. By the way, I completely endorse your message telling that other snowflake poster to take a hike.
Here's a review of how I did with my picks against your srads.

Correctly picked Stone Bridge to both win and to cover.

Correctly picked Annandale to both win and cover. The Atoms aren't going to have a good season, but it's still nice to see them get a win. Annandale still has left to play Mt. Vernon, Hayfield, Falls Church, and JEB. I wouldn't pick them to beat Mt. Vernon or Hayfield, but they might have a chance against Falls Church (who is really bad this year). I'll admit I was rooting hard for them to get a win on Friday.

I picked Chantilly to both win and cover, so I got both ends of this pick wrong. Frankly, I'm stunned, and I have the same question about whether the injury bug has hit Chantilly. A team like Chantilly should easily beat a team that lost to Herndon.

Correctly picked Fairfax to win, but I thought they would cover, so I got that part of the pick wrong. Edison was more competitive against Fairfax than Fairfax's other OOD creampuffs, so this shows Edison's improvement. Another note on Edison: Edison is now in the 8th position in the Region C playoff standings. They went into the week behind Woodson for 8th, but passed them this week, even in a loss. I think National will get at most two teams in the playoffs (more likely only one, though), and it will be between Edison, Hayfield, and Mt. Vernon.

Herndon is the other feel good story of this season. I correctly picked them to both win and to cover.

Correctly picked Lake Braddock to win, but I picked them not to cover. I think I have been seriously overestimating South Lakes this season.
> 7. Marshall @ Madison (-17)
> - Madison won and covered, 42-6. No surprise here
Correctly picked Madison to both win and to cover. Madison seems to have righted the ship.
> 8. McLean @ Yorktown (-40)
> - Yorktown won, but did not cover, 38-13.
No pick made against a spread of >35 points. By hindsight, the spread should have been lower, but I get a spread like this playing against McLean.
> 9. Mount Vernon @ South County (-24)
> - SoCo won and covered 51-6. I know their QB

Correctly picked South County to both win and cover. I didn't need to be so nervous about the cover part of this pick.

Correctly picked Centreville to both win and to cover. I decided to go to this game, just to see if all the hype we're hearing from the Woodson crowd had any basis. Short answer: It didn't. Centreville was up 21-1 not even halfway through the first period, and at that point, they had run as many offensive plays from scrimmage as they had scored touchdowns. I didn't even make halftime. I left halfway through the second when the score was 42-0. Woodson's remaining schedule is South County, @Fairfax, Robo, Lake Braddock, and @ TCW. Now that TCW has seemingly righted the ship, I'll renew my prediction that Woodson won't win another game this season.

No pick against a >35 point spread
> 12. West Springfield (-30) @ Oakton
> - The Spartans won and covered, 58-13.
Correctly picked West Springfield to both win and cover. I was nervous about the cover part; turns out I didn't need to be.
