It was not underdog week in the pick'ems. Thank god. Coming in 1st for the final week was 'MattHawk'. It seems 'MattHawk' has found his nitch in his method of doing his picks. The power of sheer luck is amazing. There was a tie for 2nd for the week. 'Goblue97' was able to over come his last two weeks of poor performance. What helped was he was able to put behind him the horror of his team's last game of the season. Sunshine, on the other hand, got some eyelid pointers from 'MattHawk' and road that to the 2nd place tie. On the bottom end of the week, I came in last place for the second time this year. This is very uncharacteristic of me. I going back to my old way of picking. Fuck the third logarithm. Coming in 2nd to last for the week was 'THAWK'. Lucky for him this was the last week in the contest. So it didn't hurt him in the final standings. On the other hand, maybe he is trying to get his soul back. Coming in 3rd to last for the week was 'whiskey town'. This has been a rough year for 'whiskey town'. She is used to being top 5. She says this years performance was unacceptable and next year everyone had better watch out. I, myself, would have been very happy coming in 7th in the contest. That is just me, though.
Contest Overview Week 14:
Here are the movers (up) and the shakers (down) in week 14. 'THAWK' took the crown for 2018. I am sure his soul is on fire. New comer 'MattHawk' took 2nd. Let's see how big his head gets. And 'TheLoneClone' took 3rd. Best showing he has had in years. As far as movers and shakers, the only change from last week was that 'whiskey town' and 'Hawkinator' danced and switched places. 'MattHawk' and 'M'town' each came in 1st place three times this season. On the other end of the contest, 'M'town' came in last place three times. As you can tell, 'M'town' likes to have the full experience of being involved in a contest. Congratulations to everyone who participated. I am being told that the members of the "Zero Hall of Shame" are going to take a class in pressure management before next years contest.

It was quite an ending to the Bowl season. Same as during the season, to many underdogs were able to prevail. Clemson (14 point underdogs) wins the title. Only 3 people picked Clemson. 2 of the 3 advanced because of it. The other, only his crystal ball knows for sure how it effected him. Wining the contest both in points and correct picks was 'Sunshine'. When interviewed and asked how he was able to accomplish this, he said that it is all in a state of mind. You just close your eyes and have Mother Luck have her way with you. Coming in 2nd place in both the points and correct picks was 'HawkDoc57". He came on strong in the last days of the contest. He tributes this to his long understanding of how medicine and life are entangled. Coming in 3rd in both points and picks was 'Botty4life'. He was one of the three who chose Clemson. He move up from 5th to 3rd. It was one of those "I got nothing to lose" moments. Actually it was one of those 'Sunshine' Mother Luck moments. On the bottom end of the contest, 'MattHawk was able to come in last in both points and correct picks. Tis was quite an accomplishment sense 'MattHawk' considers himself a man of the world (of sports). As you know, the world is facing global warming, air pollution, over population, athletes getting paid to much, $10 beers at football stadiums, no national league DH, city taxes paying for coliseums and a host of other injustices. All this effected 'MattHawk' and his method of college bowl picking. As you can see, his results are quite evident. 'MattHawk' says next year is going to be different. He is going to use the 'Sunshine' Mother Luck method. It sure can't hurt and his results are bound to be better. Rounding out the bottom end of the contest was 'M'town' coming in second to last in points (he got too many right to be in the bottom end of correct picks) and 'ORNGE 21 coming in 3rd to last in points (he did start until the 10th bowl).
