Journal-World sports editor Chuck Woodling bounced back with a 5-1 record in this week's Wanna Whack Woodling contest after going 3-3 last week.
It didn't matter much as 220 participants tied or whacked Woodling, who missed a perfect week because of a self-proclaimed idiotic pick of Iowa State over Texas. The home team doesn't win every time, Chuck.
Will Banning of Overland Park won the contest, choosing the Jayhawks as 34-21 victors over Baylor. That was one of the lowest projected scores for KU, as most entries had the Jayhawks scoring in the 40s or 50s.
Banning was one of 82 participants with perfect records, and 138 people tied Woodling's 5-1 mark.

Missouri 66, Texas Tech 54
Ho hum, just another Texas Tech shootout. Tigers earn edge based on homefield advantage and better defense. Also, Red Raiders likely to be suffering residual fallout from last week's two-point loss at Oklahoma State.
Nebraska 41, Iowa State 11
Please help me, I'm falling. Cyclones have dropped five in a row and Lincoln, Neb., is no place to try to stop spin out. Cornshuckers may be looking ahead to Texas, but I doubt it.
Texas A&M 27, Oklahoma State 25
Cowboys haven't lost since August. Aggies have dropped four of their last five. But 12th Man and Kyle Field will bring an end to Okie State's six-game win streak.
Texas XX, Baylor 15
Fill in the score for Texas because the Longhorns can name it against the Bears, who own a three-game home win streak but shot their wad last week in Lawrence. Texas fans may outnumber Baylor fans in Floyd Casey Stadium.
Oklahoma 50, Colorado 13
Colorado hasn't surrendered fewer than 42 points in its last five games. Oklahoma is averaging nearing 53 points in its last five outings. Too bad Ralphie can't play linebacker for the Buffs.
Kansas State 34, Kansas 22
The beatings go on for Kansas in the Sunflower State showdown, but for the first time since 1994 the Jayhawks will make it competitive. Will 'Cats have a bounty on Bill Whittemore?
