Week 13: Results

My most sincere apologies to everyone for not updating this weekend.  Working retail, I’m sure you can imagine that I didn’t have much free time this weekend.  However, I burned through my DVR and got all the picks, all the results, and here’s how it looks.  A pretty good week overall for our panel of experts.  This week’s big winners are Jesse Palmer (6-0), Lee Corso (12-1), Bo Jackson (9-1), and my girlfriend Jennifer who went on a MONSTER run going 17-3 this week.  Our losers this week were Howie Schwab (who continues to slide after an 0-2 week), and Matt Stinchcomb (0-3 this week, but come on man. You can’t pick ALL upsets).  We’re getting close to bowl season, and that’s where legends are made, so keep your ears listening to our updates here and on Twitter @gamedaycole

Week 12 Results (ouch)

Here’s the results from Week 12 of our 2011 season.  There were some outrageous upsets this weekend, some of which we haven’t seen the likes of since the year of the upset in 2007.  Iowa St upset Oklahoma State as a four touchdown dog and there wasn’t anyone who picked that upset. Desmond Howard was the only expert to pick Baylor over Oklahoma.  Lou Holtz was the only expert to pick USC over Oregon.  If that tells you anything, that tells you that nobody had a good week this week.  Our winners this week were Jesse Palmer and Dr. Lou Holtz who both put up 5-1 records (and were pretty much the only ones to put up a reasonable winning week).  Tom Luginbill gets the silver star at 6-3.  Lee Corso is this week’s bottom of the barrel going 3-9.  My girlfriend Jennifer hit another upset special, so its a big week around here.
