Well, our contest concluded with a clear-cut winner. Dawg Wild, who never relinquished the top spot, finished first with a record of 54-25, with Southern Tiger two spots behind. Our leader did very well, posting a pick percentage around ten points higher than last year’s winner, and just from a quick glance, one of, if not the best winning percentage/total correct picks in our contest, ever. On, the other end, as he promised, trripleplay remained in the last position, although he has a co-loser(?) now in CoachC47. It seemed like the last day either went really well or really poorly for most people.
Overall, the community as a whole did much better than last year, with the total pick percentage at 53.05% versus 47.36%. While our tiebreakers don’t matter now, more chose Georgia(38) to win the final game compared to Alabama (31). Again, at a quick glance, our best pick was Oklahoma State in the World Camping bowl at 87.29%, while the worst, unfortunately, was the team pick at 10.17% in the Texas bowl.

As well, in a couple months, stay tuned for the RMN March Madness bracket challenge. Enjoy the all-SEC championship game, and if you’re like most of us, try and not freeze!
