Herky823's super great, not at all dumb or convoluted Iowa football prediction game.

There were 3 posters who were perfect with the Iowa victory (was there ever a doubt) and Peaches triumphant return for a single touchdown in Week 12. Those 3 posters are bolded in green.

Per @Herky823's rules of the game, the 9 posters who correctly predicted a 10-2 record receive 15 bonus points. Those 9 people are bolded in purple.

Here are the final standings after 12 games (135 points max possible).

@L. Wade Childress absolutely abused Halo, made the rest of Halo his personal bitch. A true savant. He was the only person of the 29 to correctly predict each of the 12 games correctly, and led or tied for the lead wire-to-wire.

While the tie-breaker (Goodson's total yards) did not come into play, it should be noted that 16 of the 29 people did not go over, and @Jim was the closest at 1301 (actual 1317).

While not an official part of the rules, it is interesting to note that 27 out of 29 people predicted over Peach's touchdown total for the season. @thrawn was short by one at 13, @Verbal was on the mark with 14 touchdowns, passing and rushing, for the season. Everyone else predicted over.

@Herky823, a nice little, fun game. It also shows who the smarter brother is. That could make for a salty holiday season.

@MikeyJoe gave @KitKatApples a run for the title, but couldn't quite pull it off. Nice job Mr. Apples. A small slip-up mid-season, but regained the cellar in dominating fashion.

As mentioned, @L. Wade Childress predicted Iowa correctly winning or losing all 12 weeks, he was the only one.

Six others predicted 11 of the 12 games correct, of those 6, Purdue was the miss for 5, Indiana was miss for the other participant.

Five people missed on 4 games, and one missed on 5.

For the Peaches touchdown predictions, the best was 4 weeks, which 9 people achieved. The worst was one correct week, shared by 4 posters.

@Jim was the closest in total yards, 16 short of the actual 1317 total.

@Verbal was the only contestant to correctly predict 14 scores for the entire season. Perspective of how bad this is, of the 14 scores, 5 were "rushing (quarterback sneaks)" touchdowns, only 9 passing. Of the 14 touchdowns, 6 came on Friday's (5 versus Maryland, 1 versus Nebrantska).
