Jimplecute Editor Bob Palmer celebrates this week the end of the suicide part of the Texas A&M football schedule. After playing Alabama and Clemson, everything else looks easy, according to Palmer who still has a firm grip on last place (13-17) in the Jimplecute Pigskin Prognosticators poll.

Zooming into first place are Charlie Chitwood and Doug Thompson who are now tied with last week’s winner, Ned Fratangelo.

Chitwood helped his cause with a 11-4 record last week, bringing his season total to 19-11.

Thompson added 10 wins to his nine from last week, to tie Chitwood.

Fratangelo slipped to nine wins last week to set up the three-way knot.

Sheila Langbartels also went 9-6 last week to improve her season standing to 18-12.
