Another year in the books...

Congratulations to the winner of the JeromeXVIII, James Laville! With 112 points and 20 winners, it was a pretty tremendous performance.

See the Keeper’s words below (if you didn’t get the email), thanks for joining us for the mad rush that is these two weeks, and we look forward to seeing you again next year!

JeromeXVIII Final Scoreboard

JeromeXVIII Final Survey

Hey Everyone,

We've reached the end of another Jerome Season, and we're back with the usual thank you's. 

It's remarkable that more than 1200 people enter this thing - we hope it puts a fun spin on a fortnight for you every year. I appreciate your interest, enthusiasm, and retweets, in some order.

Thanks as always to the interns for building the infrastructure, crunching the data, and staying patient with you when you clicked Montana State when you meant Montana and now want to switch. They hold a extra special place with us - let's just say none of the rest of you will ever measure up.

Fun run of games this year. The final standings include any ties we could break using numbers of winners picked, then the three tiebreakers everyone submitted. Some of you were identical all the way through and will need to find your own way to determine supremacy. I recommend an Octagon.

Time for our 49 weeks off ... see you next February for #TheJerome...looking up "Roman numerals for 19" brb...XIX. Until then ...

The Keeper

Welcome to the final day of the JeromeXVIII

We have mixed feelings about today…but will refrain from getting sappy and instead focus on the positives! Points, and lots of them…

There are six final games today, so still plenty of opportunities for movement up (and down…) the scoreboard…you can expect the ultimate winner of the JeromeXVIII to be announced sometime tomorrow!

Saturday morning points

We are not exactly getting this out bright and early…but a nice midday treat before you spend the rest of the day glued to the couch and the action around the country!

Points are through the games completed Friday night

Additionally, we’ve added a new feature on the survey to show the distribution of the tie breaker selections…we want to congratulate you as a group for falling into such nice, normal distributions:)

We’ll update you again tomorrow morning before the final push!

Happy Pi Day!

We hope that your day has been filled with delicious, round desserts…but if not, here’s a tasty treat to cap off the evening…

As a reminder, there are NO points assigned tonight (Thursday), so we will not have an updated set of information for you tomorrow…but we’ll be back with a vengeance Saturday morning to carry you the rest of the way to the selection show!

Bring on the points!

Here is the scoreboard as of 6PM eastern on March 11 (so as of the Sunday night games)…those lucky few who picked Gardner-Webb are reveling in their future-seeing abilities, while the 898 of you who chose Lipscomb are going to have to look for differentiation elsewhere…
