How did LSG do on our 2010 Predictions?

Hard at work for 2011

Overall, it looks like we did very well.  Sure, there were some surprises that nobody saw coming - but that happens every year.  As usual, we blew away the AP, but that isn't hard to do.  Thanks for another great season and for all the excellent feedback.  It is that 'back and forth' we get from our fellow Texas high school football fans that really clue us in to some of the kids and programs we are unable to see in person each year.
