I would like to extend a congrats to cyd for a job well done!


Also for those of you who did participate please provide some serious feedback as to something(s) I could do to make this more interesting next season and maybe get more consistent participation.

Like stats that you would like to see presented or some kind of reward or a tournament style... anything

Thanks!

Next season, I'm just gonna pick one game....that way I'll be 100% correct and then I can feel good about myself!!!

hookem:  this was great...really enjoyed it.

I thought about showing the full coach records but we had 48 total coaches and it would just be a matter of copying and pasting the spreadsheet but I don't wanna embarrass some people :P jk

Thanks for doing this, hookem.  I obviously had a good time doing it and checking your updated standings as we went.

I think you might have had better overall participation if you had put all the bowl games up at one time early, instead of putting them up in batches.  Pulling them down as they got played was obviously a good idea.  Back to the participation, you had a lot of people take some guesses but not a lot of people kept coming back throughout the holidays to make more picks.  And some people made picks on games they were sure of but didn't want to venture a guess on those toss-up games where anyone could win or we just didn't know much about.  If you talk up the competition a little more, maybe more would be "in it to win it".  I'll offer a free GD season to next year's Hookem Bowl Challenge winner.  (If there are any still playing GD then.)

Granted, they probably wouldn't beat me... too many B1G, B12, and Pac12 homers on here!    Your conferences suck!!!

Thanks.

Next season can you just post all the games at the beginning?  I started this and then forgot about it. That's why I only picked a handful of games.
