The Panel’s Final Regular-Season Standings:

The regular panel of experts have finished their picking responsibilities for the season and are not eligible for any prizes, although our champion Hootie claims he should get a T-shirt. Somehow, he stumbled his way into first place the last few weeks of the competition and stayed there. The remainder of the panel believes there should be an investigation and perhaps even an impeachment. Hootie takes the fifth.
