I'm not sure I understand....what exactly is scores.txt? Does it need to get updated every week?

    I was leaving it as an exercise for the programmer to LWP over to and pickup the scores, but here is a scores file for 2001 and the first weeks of 2002 anyway. Yes, it should be updated weekly. Supply a week of 0 - 0 scores to get a prediction.

    The code only called 6 of 15 games correctly yesterday but averages about 64% correct over the past couple of years. I'm not sure the NFL can be predicted a lot better. Here's a data set if anyone wants to come up with a better recipie.


      Oh okay. That makes sense. I think I'll enjoy this one.
