A merry GTP New Year!

Hope it’s a great one for all of you.

Meanwhile, let me share a number with you:  5,310,507.  That’s the number of hits recorded at the blog in 2014.  It represents better than a 25% increase in traffic over 2013.  That kind of increase is great in the early years, when you’re in the process of establishing an audience, but to record that in the eighth year of a college football blog?  Don’t know about you, but I’m well and truly impressed.

And grateful, of course.  It’s wonderful to have the traffic, but I’m also most appreciative of what a stout commenting group GTP enjoys.  Agree with me, disagree with me – it’s all good, because it’s the give and take of intelligent discussion that makes this such a great place to stop at and keep up with Georgia football and its surrounding environment.

If I don’t say it enough, you guys are the best.  Long may you run.

Have a Shane MacGowan Christmas!

I always bounce between my two favorite Christmas songs.  This year, you get the Pogues.

Enjoy the day, y’all.

All the spreads are posted now, except for the title game, so feel free to jump in any time to make your picks.

Fabris Invitational news

I’ve just set the bowl pool up and sent out your invitations to take part.  Sign up, but don’t both to make your picks yet, because not all the lines have been set.

Since we don’t know which teams will play in the national championship game, I’ve decided to allow picks on every individual game to run until the start of each.

Format remains the same – picks against the spread, tiebreaker based on total points scored and which team wins.

Fabris Invitational results, Week 14

The season ends, not with a bang, but a tiebreaker in the last weekly results.

Selection Name
Tie Breaker Game
1 Mayor of Dawgtown Adj 8-2 8   21-27**
1 4boysbrew Adj 8-2 8   28-35

Congrats, Mayor.

And we are now ready to proclaim a regular season champ.  Or, in a first, co-champs.

SEASON STANDINGS through Week 14
Selection Name
1 Second String Secondary 82-58 82
1 Valley Dawg 82-58 82

Kudos to both. Take a victory lap in the comments section.

Again, that concludes the pick ’ems for the regular season. I expect to have the bowl pool up in ten days or so. Stay tuned.

Look at the turkeys falling from the sky!

Official GTP policy:  you can’t fully appreciate Thanksgiving without watching this clip at least once.

I don’t want to get too maudlin on you guys, but with the health issues I’ve worked my way through this year, I’ve got plenty to be grateful for.  No way I stay sane without family and friends, both in the flesh and virtual.  Bless you all.

And as a Dawg fan, I’m glad Todd Gurley has this to be grateful for.

Enjoy your holiday, peeps.

A couple of Fabris Pool housekeeping notes

First off, please pay attention to this week’s pool including a Thursday game and two Friday games.  Make sure to get all your picks in on time.

Second, this is the last week of the pool in the regular season, as there aren’t ten games being played next week.  So, we’ll crown our seasonal champ next week.

I assume everyone wants a bowl pool as we’ve done the last couple of seasons.  I’ll get that up once the matchups and spreads are announced.
