Mountain Oysters Rule Pigskin Mania

A new scoring record and a new formula for victory put the Mountain Oysters on top of the Pigskin Mania heap.

The team entry made up of five friends, former co-workers, pulled away in the final days of Pigskin Mania 28 to set a new scoring record at 76.0 and win $4,425 plus another $60 for a perfect week.

EFanucci was two points back and collects a total of $1,978.50, with 111DBH32 in third and collecting $1,653.

Players who won money need to refer to the right hand column for instructions on handling their winnings.

In the long and sometimes sordid history of the pool, formulas and strategies have come and gone in the wind. This year’s winning game plan was put together by five guys from California who used to work together and have remained friends through Pigskin Mania.

The way it works, according to team members, each of the five makes one pick by conference call on Friday afternoon and then they vote on a Lock of the Week. If no one has a good feeling on the Pigskin Special, it’s sometimes left to the last picker to make the call on that game. With each player making their best pick, the formula worked for the 2020 season.

 “Although we’re all good friends, we probably wouldn’t talk once a week like we do if it wasn’t for Pigskin,” said one of the players who will remain anonymous. “We all look forward to the Friday call.”

Congratulations to the new champions.


For the second straight year we have a dual winner at the top of the Bowl Pool.

B&J 4ever took first place with a near-record score of 74 to collect $1,372.50. The B portion of the winning entry, B Adams, finished tied for second with TR Zman. Each will collect $507.83.

Players might recall that last year, Velvet Milkman completed the unprecedented sweep taking first, second and third places with his three entries.

There was also a tie for fourth this year where Bill Stewart, current holder of the longest streak without a perfect week in the regular-season pool, will collect $178.43 along with Obvious John, a newcomer to the Mania pools.

There were 442 entries meaning the pool paid out to 44th place and ties. With the ties, the pool paid 47 places.

All cash prizes are listed in the standings. Here's the link to the Bowl Pool page with instructions on collecting your winnings.


Money Winners Look Here

Congratulations to all the money winners in Pigskin Mania 28.

A total of 443 players will collect from the total pot of $56,940, with 408 of those getting at least their entry fee back.

Here’s the process for collecting your winnings.

First of all, we want everyone to know that if you want to collect, you’re welcome to do so. However, we encourage players who plan to play in future pools to leave funds on account to cover future entry fees. We have more than 1,200 players who participate in our pools and it’s just so much easier to run the pools if we’re not trading payments with every player for every pool. We painstakingly track everyone’s accounts in great detail so if you ever have a question, we figure it out.

That said, for those who want to collect some or all of their winnings, here’s what to do.

Give us a few days to get everyone’s accounts updated, then check the Accounts page to see where you stand. Then, go to the Winner’s Page and simply follow the directions and fill out the form on that page. We will start sending payments as soon as we possibly can.

We remind everyone, The Poolmaster now has a day job, so it will take a little time to process everything. We hope to get payments out by the Super Bowl in two to three weeks.

If you just want your winnings to stay on account, you don’t have to do anything. If we don’t hear from you, we will assume you want to your funds to stay there.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to drop us an email at poolmaster@pigskinmania.net.
