Callahan Bowl I

Florida and California square off in head-to-head competition. To predict who will emerge as Super Bowl XXXVII champ, Callahan turns to credit union performance data.

 
 

This weekend, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take on the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII in San Diego. The game looks to be extremely competitive, and today the odds makers favor Oakland by 4 points.

But you can't always count on the odds makers, so we decided to do our own analysis based on the credit union performances in each state. We took a look at seven credit union ratios that demonstrate the real strength of each state. Then we tallied up who won the most categories and there you are! It's as good a technique as any! Lets first take a look at the NFC and AFC Championship Games from this past weekend.

Based on our analysis, our predictions for the Championship games were correct and we predict the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take home the trophy on Sunday night, thanks in part to their state's excellent credit union performance. Have a great time watching the game!

Want to find out how your state compares with Florida and California? Complete performance information on every state and their individual credit unions is available in Callahan's 2003 Credit Union Directory.
