Nailed It! Conference Championships

. . . but not really

There is only one week left until the Pantheon closes its doors for the year, but perhaps they should have closed a bit early. Our prognosticators must have forgotten that there were games being played, because that is the only way I can explain there being zero (yes, zero!) correct predictions. However, there is one thing from the comments that I do wonder whether or not came to pass. GreenAndGold 80 said:

If the Super Bowl becomes ‘THE HARBAUGH BOWL’ I will call to DirecTV and cancel all ESPN channels.

Finding out if that actually happened will be better than reading about how no one Nailed It! this week.

Final score

These are the people who have (somehow) correctly predicted the final outcome of a game. The only shot that was called that could be considered more famous than these belongs to . Bow down before their wisdom! (And make sure you ask them for next week’s lotto numbers.)

  • None this round.

Scoring differential

These are the ones who correctly predicted the margin by which the victors would best their competition. These are also the ones to consult if you want to bet the spread.

  • None this week.

Total combined score

These are those who somehow managed to pick the correct total score but did not have any clue in how the teams would actually get there. Still, if you want to bet an over/under, you could do worse than consulting with them.

  • None this week.

Is it possible, short of a stroke, to forget how to use a camera? Apparently so, because none of our WCSN members managed to nail it this week.

Winning team’s score

  • None this week.

Against the grain

Oftentimes, our picks will be unanimous. However, there are those who will sometimes walk their own path.

  • None this round.

Wrap-up

The Super Bowl has finally arrived, and this will be the last opportunity to add your name to the Pantheon before it closes its doors. So if you would like to have your name forever enshrined in the vast expanse that is the internet, simply call your shot in the comment section below for any of the playoff games this round. I will be reviewing the comments, and keeping track.

Also, remember that you can still read about those who have made correct predictions in the past (or simply revel in your past greatness), by visiting our Pantheon. In the meantime, let’s give a little congratulatory clap to those who are listed in this article. Or not. Your choice.

The past week in sports has been so gay! Weve had Manti T'o saying hes "far from" gay last thursday, weve had ronaiah tuisasopo claiming hes trying to recover from his gayness (lol), we've had that sports illistrated photo of the two 49ers fan-dudes making out at a gay bar, we had an ex-49er being outed after he beat the crap out of his boyfriend, and weve had chris culliver.
