RMN Bowl Contest Update: The Final Verdict

The high-scoring National Championship was to the advantage of our winner, though he still wasnt terribly close to the actual answer

Nothing fancy like this for our champion, but bragging rights are nice too

1Believer is the King!

Thanks to the high-scoring affair between Clemson and National Champ Alabama, 1Believer's tie-breaker of 67 points was closest to the actual number, defeating fengsuede and Highonlife and winning the 9th Annual Rock M Nation Bowl Pick 'Em Contest.  All three had been tied at 52-28, one game ahead of fnu2 and last year's champ MatthewVogt, who defended the title better than any of our previous eight winners.

At the other end of the spectrum, trripleplay took bottom honors, losing the reverse tie-breaker against Gregg, who both had matching 32-48 records.

It was another successful campaign for the community, as we overcame some early losses to end up with an impressive 52.56% winning percentage, almost 400 picks to the positive.  This moved our all-time record up to 51.33%, with a record of 37,640-35,683.

Thanks again to everyone who participated this year.  I hope you all continue to enjoy it, as we look to bring it back next year for the 10th annual go-round.  And we'll do the Bracket challenge again coming up in the next couple of months as well.

For a look at the datasheet, click HERE. On the link you can find your picks on the first tab (Form Responses 1). After each pick, I will color them up red/green to denote the winner. On the results tab you can find much of the behind-the-scenes data, but I would also invite you to the bottom of the page to see the yearly and all-time numbers, as well as the per-game percentages. Finally, on the Records tab can you find the Leaderboard..  Hopefully in the coming weeks I can figure out how to get the all-time (individual) records updated to include last year and this year.
