Despite a very close finish last season, the dastardly duo of Headache and phanan have had a lock on this competition for the last 3 years and combined have won 4 times in the past decade. Let's break the cycle folks. Who knows, maybe there'll only be like 2 of us still here by next year so let's make it count now.

2022 final standings:
Headache in a Suitcase - 138
LuckyNumber7 - 136
phanan - 134
U2inUtah - 132
iron yuppie - 131
PennyLanePHINS - 124
GirlsAloudFan - 122
DaveC - 121
the tourist - 118
mikal - 111
bono_212 - 105
Hewson - 96

You know the drill, assign an integer from 1 to 14 for each playoff team, 14 being the highest, when a team wins you get the number of points you assigned to that particular team. Points earned are cumulative throughout the whole playoffs.

Don't forget to include a tiebreaker - total points scored in the super bowl. Second tiebreaker is order of entry (earlier submission wins), as always. Seriously guys, remember the tiebreaker. I always have to chase somebody down for it every year.

The winner of last year's consolation prize for coming closest to the total points scored in the Superb Owl was yours truly, with a guess of 41 against 43 actual points scored. My prize is an all-expenses-paid round-trip for two to Hawaii, generously paid for by Hewson (no you can't come with me).

i'll leave picks open until half time of the first game in case any late stragglers join. hopefully LN7, tourist, and bono_212 remember about this.
 
With permission from y’all I’m gonna randomly make a list rn even tho a game is underway since Dave kindly reminded me
