Belk Winner! Contest Update!


Happy New Year!

With the first two semifinal games in the books and just a handful of other bowl games left on the bloated bowl schedule, let's take a look at where we stand.

Belk Bowl Winner: Wilson! The final score was 51-28 in favor of Mississippi State, and his guess was 32-27. Surprisingly, this was actually the closest guess. I guess next year I'll have to give away non-exploding hoverboards. (Wilson, please send me your mailing address when you get a chance.)

In the big contest, now that the semis are complete, please go back to the contest page to pick a winner in the championship game along with a score (for tiebreaker purposes). I'll send out a "commissioner note" to remind everyone before the final game.

The current leader is Bubba's Bangin' Pick Set. I'm going to take a wild guess and say that this is Allen & Ginter supercollector Matt. Bubba's also has the top overall "possible points" score, while Chris Eaton's Bowlapalooza and Wilson himself are hot on the trail. Less bangin' and currently in line for the Worst Place Prize (not a good prize) is The Lost Collector. If things hold up, AJ may be due for a Dustin Pedroia Fathead on his wall. You never know.
