I believe I have this worked out for Round 2. Less hair wins. Only a couple of exceptions in Division One and those two races are tight. In Division Two Carson and MacArthur look to have about the same amount of hair but Carson has a big lead. Otherwise the guy with less hair is ahead.

So far the hairiest (Augustine) is losing badly.

I notice a decided lack of hipsters on either the winning or losing side. Wink

Most people here can now tell who I vote for, but Mac was responsible for me starting with Logos and really Bible study from much earlier.

I can't believe that this truly great preacher and theologian is losing...

I know.  I was really hoping to pick up a few of his works for dirt cheap.  Oh well. Slightly heavier wallet for me :)

I've had to go online to uncap N.T. Wright. So here the two titans are who are battling each other in Round Two:

HMM.

Lack of hair on top of head? Wright

Lack of facial hair? Piper

Overall lack of hair: Piper.

Clearly someone at Faithlife headquarters is trying to confuse the handicappers by putting a cap on N.T.'s head.

Never-the-less, in spite of trying to swing the vote toward Piper and so far failing, Game Central predicts a late game come-back for John Piper.

Piper is staging a late-game come-back. Game Central is confident of their call of John Piper.

In other action:

Schreiner has also been narrowing the gap late in the game, but based on hair alone, Game Central predicts Schreiner will fall short and McKnight will hold on to go on to Round Three.

This certainly might explain why Chesterton didn't make it out of the first round! He is doomed!
