Super Bowl H2H Champs

SUPER BOWL CHAMPS OVERVIEW

Super Bowl Champions are the winners of the yearly Head to Head competitions.  The Head to Head regular season usually lasts for 10 weeks, with players being split up into divisions of 4 to 5 players each.  The winners of those divisions along with other players with winning records are given higher seedings in the challenging Super Bowl Tournament.  The Super Bowl Tournament is generally 5 rounds long – including the First Round, Wild Card Round, Divisional Round, Conference Round, and Super Bowl Round.  The last player standing at the end of the tournament is declared the Super Bowl Head to Head Champion for the season.  Some club members enjoy the Head to Head play even more than the weekly Points play and Current Standings.  Head to Head play is unique in that it is possible to win your match with a very low score and lose your match even if you have a very high score.  Your result depends as much on how your opponent does as on how well you do.

As of the conclusion of the 2023 season, we have had 15 different Super Bowl Champs over the course of 21 seasons (there was no Super Bowl competition held in 2001).  The Rickster is the only player to own 4 titles.  The Rickster is also the only player ever to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles.  Bob Swerski is not far behind with 3 titles of his own.  The highest score ever in a Super Bowl Final match was recorded by Papa J-Bird when he scored 33 Points in 2003.  The lowest score ever to win a Super Bowl Final match was 11 Points done by Bob Swerski in 2021.  The best record for the entire Head to Head season including the Super Bowl Tournament is 13-1, recorded by Cat Man in 2000.  The best records in Head to Head for the regular season only is 9-1, done by three different players – Hoosier Daddy (accomplished twice), Cat Man, and Annie-mole.  To date, no player has ever gone undefeated in regular season Head to Head play by reaching the elusive perfect mark of 10-0.  Two times in Super Bowl Finals there have been ties and the winner has been decided by who had the higher seeding.  These matches were won by Eastside Brewer and Bob Swerski, proving that it is important to win regular season Head to Head matches because owning the higher seed can pay off later.  Five times in club history a player has won both the Club Championship and Super Bowl Championship in the same season.  Known as the Double Major, it has been done by Eastside Brewer (also known as The Rickster), Papa J-Bird, Cat Man, Schloppy Joe, and Big Wiggle.  But it has not been done since the 2006 season.  Four players have been to Super Bowl Finals twice and lost both matches to remain without a title – Kip Possible, Fearless Tuna, Drummer Boy, and Inspector Clouseau.  To see our full list of Super Bowl Champions and those who finished as Runner-Up and Conference Finalists through the years, look below.  (Note: some of our earlier records have been lost, so in some years we do not have information about final scores, Runner-Up, or the Conference Finalists other than who the Super Bowl Champion was.)
