Week 9 2012: Results are in!

So this week while I’ve been grading the picks, I’ve had to pull out the red pen a LOT more than usual.  It was a pretty rough week all around to be a college football expert on ESPN, with quite a few upsets going down on Saturday.  Let’s start with the big matchup for College Gameday, which was at the Oklahoma/Notre Dame game.  19 out of 21 of our ESPN experts picked Oklahoma over Notre Dame this week.  That is the most uneven picking we’ve seen this year since week 1 when everyone on the planet wanted it on record that they thought Alabama would beat Michigan except for Desmond Howard.  What makes this week more humorous is that the ONLY two experts to predict Notre Dame would beat Oklahoma were Lou Holtz and Mike Golic; the two biggest Notre Dame homers on the face of the planet (also note my girlfriend Jennifer’s upset special was ND over OU).  I guess the lesson here is be careful when everyone is picking one way when the spread is only a touchdown. Let’s move on.

Our winners this week were not big winners.  Pat Forde went 17-10, Lou Holtz went 4-1, and Kirk Herbstreit went 10-5.  We’ll give this week’s win to Lou Holtz for the Notre Dame pick, and the smug-level he will emit Friday night on ESPN will be THROUGH THE ROOF.  Lee Corso’s headgear pick of OU over Notre Dame lost, which put him at 8-6.  Our celebrity guest Nathan Followill went 4-5, so combined with his appearance a few years ago he is 7-12 all time.  Most of our experts went around .500 this week, but we had some big losers.  Desmond Howard decided to mail it in and went 3-9, so we’ll give him the official loss for those of you counting.  David Pollack went 3-4 which I think is his first losing week of the year.  BCS guru Brad Edwards was a close second at 3-8.  Other than that, please consult the results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did on picks this week.
