There’s something wrong with the spreadsheet embedding. Seems like something has changed for embedding the Google sheets.

Can anyone scroll this spreadsheet on a phone or tablet? It works on a desktop browser, but not the way it worked in the past.

Up, down, left, right
Yeah it is working for me now as well. That being said, the sheets aren’t working like they did in the past. You used to be able to see the sort buttons and such, and I as the owner could edit the data right on Stingtalk. Remember when someone had an editable spreadsheet somewhere on here a few months ago? :-). Doesn’t work anymore.

If you touch one of the gray bars on side or bottom first then slide finger across screen it works.

I've replaced the embed with a link to the spreadsheet for now. Hopefully @BeeStorm can track down what changed in the past few months that messed up the way the spreadsheets behave. There was a thread that had an editable spreadsheet back in May or June, I think the thread is deleted now because we were all entering @BeeStorm's mom's phone number.

If you click the link, you'll get a much better version of the spreadsheet. If you are on phone or tablet and have the Google Sheets app, it will open up in that.

The beautiful thing about reality is that past performance is no guarantee of future results. Of course there's still time for the staff to get their act together.

So, I can put you down for 4 or more wins the rest of the season then?

To hell with it – I guarantee we win out, beat UGA, beat Clemson in the rematch, and win the OB. Guarantee. And if I'm wrong, I'll refund your money.

You won't find a guarantee as strong as that anywhere else in the industry.
