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!!!
