    Naturally, I was the only person to pick SC over Clemson :p

    Though even I didn't put much on it [face_laugh]

    Next year, because the last 2 weeks have so few games to pick, I will set it up for 2 weeks to be dropped. Still, if everyone picks each week then those weeks could still mean something. Any suggestions on improvements would be appreciated.

    I like the way it was run. No need to get rid of the last two weeks. I think I would've been in the hunt if I could just remember to pick every week.

    Wow, I won? In that case, here's my speech.

    I started this game knowing I was destined to win. I got there despite toiling around in the middle for the first 5 weeks. I prevailed despite putting tons of confidence points on Cal and receiving losses. All I had to do was put something called effort into my picks, at only the cost of something called a life. I stumbled to the top, but I was there nonetheless.

    :p

    That was a great game played by everyone. Good job guys!
