From the self-deprecation department

This year was the first year that I followed our web traffic at any level of detail. The normal pattern has been that traffic spikes on Sundays during the regular season. But that traffic has dropped off dramatically following the big spike on BCS Selection Sunday. Right now, maybe that looks like a positive development (smile) seeing how poorly we're doing so far in our now annual use of the RWFL rankings to try to pick the bowl games. This year's RWFL-based selections have correctly picked 1 of the 6 bowl games so far this season, putting us currently at the 9.9th percentile in ESPN's College Bowl Mania. That's right, more than 90% of entries are currently performing better than our picks. Impressive! But there are a lot of games left to play, so we'll see how it shakes out in the long run. After all, our entry can't drop much lower.
