    We are finally here...in the moment we have all been waiting for...well one or two of us anyway.

    It’s time for @socallvr to step down and turn over the crown. It’s been a whirlwind year for him, what with all the public appearances throughout the year to give advice to the young up and coming prognosticators. Yeah, I know I’m big on templates...

    Although it may be a controversial decision, we’re making the call. The chances of Utah losing to Colorado at home are pretty small. The odds then of there being a change with our winner are infinitesimally small.

    Possible, but not likely. If it happens, there will be an asterisk assigned...like Roger Maris.

    Our conceivably undisputed Season Long Prediction Czar is also our first ever repeat winner:
    @Carlsport (who also wore the crown two years ago) with a net differential average of 14.3 points. Congratulations! This requires extreme confidence and a steady hand to stay the course all year and not panic with your decision process just because that one game went completely off the rails...

    You have earned our undying respect and loyalty for the coming year (or at least until the very next time you post something stupid). I would say you can ask @socallvr how that went for him this past year...but you already know don’t you?

    Our (maybe) final Top 25 this year is as follows:

    Rank Name YTD Games
    1 @Carlsport 14.3 12
    2 @Merlin4SC 14.8 11
    3 @holt7153 15.5 12
    4 @cutlerdaddy 15.7 12
    4 @qqqqqqqman 15.7 12
    4 @TrojanHorse 15.7 12
    7 @Zippy 15.9 12
    8 @AnnenbergGrad 16.0 11
    8 @BigBen 16.0 9
    10 @Ladera Trojan 16.4 12
    11 @DJ4SC 16.8 12
    11 @OC2SC 16.8 12
    11 @zitorocks 16.8 12
    11 @Trojan Forever 16.8 8
    11 @fssca51 16.8 10
    16 @ATR32 16.9 12
    16 @jimjcr 16.9 12
    18 @woohit42 17.0 10
    19 @Gabriel2Snow 17.2 9
    20 @SoUtahTrojan 17.6 9
    21 @559er 17.8 10
    21 @jjg4sc 17.8 10
    21 @SCnAZ 17.8 12
    24 @jiordone 18.0 12
    25 @oajr01 18.0 10

    If you were wondering, last years winner finished 1/10 of a point out of the top 25. So if your name is not in here, don’t be discouraged, you can turn the whole thing around next year!

    Congratulations everyone.

    Fight On! And Beat The --yet to be named opponent -– possibly Ducks, but more likely Bears or Wolverines!

    So if I dispute this, that means that Carlsport cannot be the “undisputed” Czar, and would have an asterisk next to his name.

    Is this correct?

    "Conceivably" it could be disputed if we wind up playing Oregon in a conference championship game and he has a really, really bad day of picking...

    Thanks for hosting this TH. It makes things a little more fun. I’m thrilled to be in the top 25 after just being way out with horrible guesses! Fight on!

    I think I’ve been Top 10 each of the 3 years......better than Helton can say, LOL.

    Congrats to Carlsport!

    Thanks TH, for hosting!

    Congrats @Carlsport... Your cybernetic trophy is virtually on its way. In my mind it looks something like this!

    Sweet! I'd like to thank the Academy, my fellow posters, my family (for allowing me the hours and hours of rigorous preparation each week), TrojanHorse (of course) and most of all, myself (after all, I picked the numbers)!

    Even though I only have 100 or so posts to my name (nearly half of which relate to this game), now that I've won 2 out of 3 years, can I NOT be considered a Troll/newbie when I post?

    I just about spit out my morning coffee on that one!

    I have noticed that you are a man of few words. Tell you what, as part of the vast variety of prizes and awards for winning (ahem), I'll include one year of "defense of borderline conceptual posts" - for whatever that's worth...

    Funny you say that, because that's the first mental picture I had also...but I knew better than to post that photo! It has taken on an entirely different meaning on this board.

    There are still awards to be handed out...

    We had over 200 unique contestants who played at least one game this year which is a record.

    Each year we honor those players that participated in every game during the regular season. This year the list is comprised of 22 players - which is also a new record.

    The Fight On Spirit Award goes to:
    @Arthur Jury
    @ATR32
    @Carlsport

    Unfortunately, I did not archive complete stats prior to the 2017 season. Before that, I could still "search" on the old site so it did not occur to me that I would need to keep a better record. But I do have very complete records for the last 3 years.

    It looks like people are generally getting better at the predictions also. At least judging by 25th place, two years ago it was 26 points, last year 22 points, and this year down to 18 points.
