You are all pretty bad at picking the winners of college football bowl games.
I can say that to all but three of you, and maddeningly, one of those people is GTom, my fellow Northwestern fan who will no doubt lord this over me until we both fade forgettably into the mists in the 2019 iteration of this competition.
But enough about me. Now that the College Football Playoff is over, we can crown a winner. Congratulations to AKnickelbein, who with 563 confidence points finished in the 98.6 percentile of the whole damn ESPN competition and cleared the OTE runner-up, GTom, by 26 points. You can see the full standings here.
Thanks to Stew for setting this all up. The Top 20 are found below. AKnickelbein, whoever you are, feel free to contact me and write a(n appropriate) Fanpost of your own, which I will front-page. And thanks to all of you who participated.
