Well, friends, it’s been a wild year. We’ve had everything from a Saturday night game played in a torrential downpour to a (virtual) torrential downpour of 5-7 teams going to bowl games.
We also went from two conference-related editions of Clear Your Schedule each week — again, my decision — to one. That may change again next year, depending on a number of things. Your thoughts are, quite obviously, the most important of those things.
Along with those changes, we unveiled a new weekly spin around six national games, with a contest attached. The Sixer came onto the scene this year, and though it was not sanctioned by, a part of or really anything else associated with the site, it added a fun element of competition each week. (Competition’s pretty awesome, isn’t it?)
Let’s see how that competition finished.
Of course it ended that way. Our friend Paul from Stadium Journey so kindly volunteers to help us with the contest, then wins the thing. Perhaps he can award himself a prize. (In all seriousness, congratulations, Paul!) Thanks to all of you for playing this year, and we’ll hope to see you competing again in 2016.
We don’t currently plan to break down the ACC bowls, so this may be the last time we speak in 2015. If it is, I guess it’s time for me to Clear My Schedule for a while.
To Kevin (especially), Eric and the rest of our staff here, it’s been another great year here at FBSchedules. I’m pretty proud to be a part of all of this. To all of you, you make it possible for us to continue to write about the game we love and have fun doing it. We don’t always agree on things, but isn’t that the point? Different opinions make the world circle.
Enjoy the bowls and the College Football Playoff, everyone. Just as importantly, enjoy the fellowship of the season. Memories of our favorite team’s successes are pretty important, but so are memories of those we love. Before we know it, pitchers and catchers will be reporting, and we’ll be thinking of how we miss this game and spending every Saturday watching it.
So, to you all, merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, happy Kwanzaa, joyous December 25th, or whatever you may celebrate this season. May your 2016 be a blessed one and bring you tidings of great joy.
Until we meet again, be well.
