Don't Kick--Push

6 Jan 2019

Alabama beat Kentucky for the first time in ten tries, 77-75. Iowa State dominated Kansas 77-60, and South Carolina--a double-digit underdog @ Florida--dunked at the buzzer after a full-length pass to shock the Gators 71-69. But the biggest GridCard factor Saturday was the injury to Seahawk kicker Sebastian Janikowski in Dallas.

Without the use of a kicker, the Seahawks were forced to go for two after each of their TDs, converting both on runs by Chris Carson--the last two-pointer coming after a fourth down scoring strike from Wilson to McKissic with just over a minute left. The 24-22 Cowboy victory was a costly push on the GridCard, consuming 146 GridCard points. 

The Dust (42) picked up in 2019 right where he left off in 2018--still on fire. Looking for an unprecedented fourth straight King Kong in the Second Game, TheDust couldn't have script his First Game any better.

The GridCard allowed only two other Qualifying Scores--both going to players making their GridCard debuts: Mitchell10 (33) and Kathie (30). GB55 and Ricco1947 posted the only other WPNs--besting all players in the ProGrid Tour where no player earned a QS, triggering a Rake and a Second Game Rollover.
