It's over. The long regular season is done, and only the cream of the crop remain. The rest of the crop can basically go fuck itself.

The usually-unpredictable Week 17 ended up relatively decent for the Idiots, with the group averaging just over 7 correct (even including marmol's final failed attempt at going ofer).

Special props to Drifter for waiting until his tenth game of the season to get a win, then going 5-1-1 down the stretch, finishing with four straight wins and the lone perfect score in Week 17.

In the BHMC, the Saints' miracle comeback was all that yours truly needed to clinch a tie with SbV8, guaranteeing me top spot in the conference and home-"field" advantage throughout the playoffs. rhythm method locked up third with a win, while rubdirt's Week 17 victory over Freeman gave him the tiebreaker for 4th spot. BBAM's last-week win earned him the final playoff spot.

Down in the SJMC, JacquesLeftFeet's six-game win streak to close out the season was the longest of the year, giving him the regular season conference crown (there is no crown). Despite leading the conference for most of the season, Sneijds could not match JLF down the stretch and slipped to second place. DJJJW and Mangini finished with identical 7-4-5 records, but Jeff's 7-4 Week 1 victory over MIAB gave him the tiebreaker. Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood and his league-high 7 ties locked down the fifth seed. Here's the thing, pal: in the playoffs, if you tie, as the lower seed, you lose. People forget that.

Finally, the sixth and final playoff seed was decided on a tiebreaker, as AMB and Dingoden both finished 6-5-5. However, a 9-8 victory for the Barber in Week 6 was enough to propel him to the final playoff spot. There's always next year, Dingo.

Thanks for mostly getting your picks in on time and only a few of you driving me batshit insane this year. Playoff post will be up shortly.
