Ladies and Gentlemen,
Thank you all for playing Stupid Upset Picks this year- running the game adds quite a bit of enjoyment to college football season for me, and I hope that you all enjoyed it even a tenth as much as I did.
The bowl season was filled with upsets, making the final chase for the title a frantic one of large point swings and/or missed opportunities. A few comments, before the final standings are shown:
It was strange to see Jack Fact making his way to the top of the leaderboard, because I still have a strong memory of him picking Colorado every week. It is nice to know that you are actually quite good at this game, sir.
ArmyTiger, Cap Town Cat, and ConnorOSU are to be commended for their persistence, if not their prognostication abilities, as they all played almost every week, and managed to get skunked for the season.
8gooner8; Attie Hat; Guynemer; Hokie Steve; Illusions, MIchael; Jack Fact, snacktastic; Some Guy Named Gabbo; and tommybowden.can.suck.it all put their bowl season picks to good use, winning both of their bowl game selections.
seeds961 had a five pick winning streak to make his final score respectable- after having a goose egg through week 11, he rattled off four consecutive wins in the regular season and won his first bowl pick, for the longest winning streak of the season.
And now, without further ado, the STUPID UPSET PICKS CHAMPION for the 2013 college football season is....(drumroll, please)....
Congratulations, and if you are ever in Columbus, your first beer is on me!
