Unlike Alabama’s treatment of the “Fighting” Irish, it was a close run thing. Mr./Ms. “Chitwood” should contact me (e-mail on the far right sidebar) regarding prize information.

  1. lige:

    Not a winner but I did a lot better this year since I figured out how confidence betting works.

  2. KadeKo:

    At least you got your entry in on time.

    Thanks to submitting mine at about halftime of the first bowl game, I ended up an entrant sans group.

    Can’t run through all the group entries, but I wonder what the biggest commonest miss was. I’m guessing Florida/Louisville.

  3. Western Dave:

    I’d agree with that. My biggest gaffe was giving a confidence rating to Kent State and a low one to Alabama. Flip those and I’d be pleased with me performance.

    My bet against the Big 10 strategy worked like a charm though.

  4. dl:

    Browsing some of the entries, a lot of people had FLA over LOU as their highest-confidence pick (somewhat understandably).

  5. James E. Powell:

    Not sure why, but for me this was the lowest interest bowl season I can recall. It may have been that Ohio State, my beloved alma mater, was not involved. But then those sanctions saved me from watching the Buckeyes get humiliated by Alabama.

  6. (Late to the Party again):

    I’ll have to remember that strategy.

    I also did much of the laziness thing, leaving picks in their ascending chronological order for confidence unless I had a reason to change them.

    Makes me wonder what would happen if the default order of the games is randomized with every entry.

  7. Missouri Buckeye:

    I was leading until New Years Day, where Michigan’s last-second loss really hurt. Fla/Louisville was a debacle and then my post-NYD picks stunk. Still, 9th place and 90th percentile isn’t too shabby.
