Well, that was anticlimatic. Alabama’s national championship thumping of TTFSB last night likely made a lot of smiles from this group. However, one reader, “The REAL Purple Wildcats”, won the inaugural Gary Barnett Purple Jacket, our traveling trophy awarded to the winner of the LTP Bowl Mania. “The REAL” took home the prize with 484 points. He nudged “Etang” who came up short just 3 points shy with 481. DB took home the bronze with 477. Congratulations to The REAL Purple Wildcats for taking home the crown and thank YOU for playing!
Meanwhile, Northwestern finished the year JUST outside of the Top 15, finishing at 16th in the USA Today Coaches Poll and 17th in the AP. You can peruse the teams that beat us out here. Regardless, it is the highest finish for any team in the Fitz era.
