Many made it to over 200, an impressive feat.
In a contest almost as fierce as the #bdoty (#2sleeps #imveryexcited), the players of CUHC have changed their profile picture in order to promote the event, and get as many reactions as possible. Since any publicity is good publicity, all kinds of reactions count (including the angry ones).
This year the uptake has been 60/64 players, as well as 3 coaches and 4 of the new Blundies (though I’m not marking them down for their poor attendance as they haven’t had as long to prepare). That’s a 35% increase on last years. Between us we’ve raked in a staggering 9755 reactions, up from 4631 last year.
All like counts were taken at 13:45 yesterday. Likes since then haven’t been counted.
#whateverwilbywilby – Pavey. You know it’s good when it gets the seal of approval from someone who spends a lot of time hashtagging.
But who didn’t take part?
4 non competers, who for whatever reason of their own didn’t want to show off their CUHC colours with pride. Just because you don’t publish it as your profile picture doesn’t mean it’s not going to get seen, instead we’ll just publish it here. Duckers, Kendall, Tep and Totton. I’m not , I’m just .
Shame! Shame! Shame!
It’s a Team Game
Barman – The Nomads Coaches (click for video ofc)
The Nomads have again dominated the likes table, accruing over 3000 likes as a team. This was helped in part by both their coaches getting involved, including Larman who prioritised coaching the Nomads over playing for the Wandies when deciding on his profile picture.
Competition for 2nd place was close, with the Squandies making a spirited come back from 4th place, using every dirty trick in the book. They had overtaken both the Wandies and Beds until yesterday, when Laura Andrews snaked them and changed her profile picture. After an investigation by CUHC Media it was found that Landrews had been sneaky and re-used a previous profile picture. The completely unbiased judges at CUHC Media voted unanimously to disqualify Landrews (simply deducting last years likes wouldn’t have been enough to give the Squandies 2nd place).
Wandies came last, not helped by having 3 players not update their profile pictures.

Except it isn’t
Nomads, as expected, dominated the top 10 of the individual leaderboard, getting 6 players up there. Representatives from all 5 teams made the list though, so solid effort. Top marks to Rhianna Miller with 275 reactions, which is quite a lot (2.6 standard deviations above the mean). Kudos to Jervis for second place, and top of the mens table in a competition dominated by the womens side of the club.
Rhianna Miller – 275
- Matthew Jervis – 267
- Rhiannon Osborne – 257
- Anne Zwolsman – 236
- Harriet Potter – 227
- Laura Andrews – 219 (though only about 89 new ones since last year)
- Alice Pavey – 218
- Freddie Hampel – 216
- Ciaran Flaherty – 211
- Robbie Zhao and Beth Barker – 205 #cute
Once a Squanderer, always a Squanderer.
Normalising against number of friends, and a few people gave it a really good go. Deme basically had half of Cyprus liking his cover photo (I was going to post some of the comments but I don’t understand what they are saying, and so they could be violating the code of conduct’s terms of no bullying).
- Deme – 39%
- Harry Brignal – 37%
- Alicia Murphy – 35%
- Harriet Potter – 31%
- Rachel Stoner – 30%
Haters gonna hate.
Most Angry reactions was only ever a two horse race. Gleeson 15 vs. Boo 13. Congrats Gleeson, you’ve managed to alienate the most of your old University. Boo had 2 angry reactions from Annie O’Neill and G Bakes, were they trying to win this award perhaps? Or was it just an extension of the chat that Fb has been swamped with over the past few weeks?
Compared to Last Year
Generally within the club, we smashed last year. Participation was higher, and we doubled the total club likes comfortably. However, 3 people got fewer likes compared to their profile pictures last year:
- Alex Harper = -1
- Tamara Norman = -2
- Dan Mehlig = -1
Ed Sides wins the award for Most Improved, with a 147% increase on last years likes, just ahead of Schute with a 146.5% improvement.
Will Archibald and Byrd both seem to have targeted the percentages this year, culling over 90 friends each in the last year (or our records are wrong). At the other end of the spectrum, well done Jim Dickinson, who has gained 46.2% more friends compared to this time last year. It wasn’t enough enough to get you top spot for the biggest increase in friends though, with Lindsay seeing a 55.6% rise in friend count #networking. Womens side of the club haven’t seen such dramatic changes in friendship numbers, with Potter and Pavey leading the way with 20+1% increases.
Overall, a good year for club networking, with an average increase in friends of 15.6%.
Totton, Duckers, Tep and Kendall messed up my nice looking distribution.
People like graphs don’t they? Well here’s a histogram of the likes in the club. Club average was 147.8 likes, with a standard deviation of 48.4 likes.
People also like tables right? I like tables. Here’s a table:
