Week 11 2012: Grades are posted!

Well folks, it was an exciting Saturday of college football in case you missed it and haven’t heard about it already.  It is always a great day in college football when the #1 team in the country goes down (unless you’re the #1 team).  Things are behind schedule this week here at the Gameday blog due to my falling sick.  I think its just a cold, and luckily the doctors have given me over a 60% chance of recovering.  Since I’m sure you didn’t come here to read about me, let’s get down to the business at hand.  We had a handful of great performances from our experts this week, a lot of mediocre performances, and a couple questionable performances.  Let me start off by backtracking to last week, when I initially forgot to issue a HUGE win to Lee Corso for going 14-0, which ties for the best undefeated performance of the year with Trevor Matich.  I hereby issue a golden unicorn star to Lee Corso for his great week last week, and he can expect to see that in the mail within 4 to 6 weeks.

This week’s guest picker was Lt. Curtis Sharp who is a navigator on the USS San Diego.  He went 6-6 in picks, so make of that what you will.  This week’s winner is Coach Mike Bellotti going 7-0, with other big wins going to Tom Luginbill at 5-0, Colin Cowherd at 6-1, Christian Fauria at 10-2, Pat Forde with a crazy 25-4, and Desmond Howard at 6-1.    Losers this week include Kirk Herbstreit going 6-7, Davey Pollack going 2-3, and Mark Schlabach at 1-2.  Todd McShay failed on another upset special this week with Penn State over Nebraska, after losing TWO of them last week.  Our panel of experts went 15 to 3 in favor of Bama over Texas A&M.  Those three were Lee Corso (who went 7-5, missing his headgear pick), Brian Griese (2-2, and always questionable), and Skip Bayless (1-0, he’s Skip Bayless) so its hard to give out huge props to them, but they get an extra check mark in my grade book just because.  Brock Huard and Matt Millen both made picks this week, and I just got a call from the Governor’s office.  He has given them a reprieve and will allow them back into the rankings while things are being reviewed going forward.  Brock and Matt, if you don’t make any more picks this season then you’re gone once again, so get with the program.  Also note that my girlfriend Jennifer’s upset special was Texas A&M over Bama (after coming OH SO CLOSE picking LSU over Bama last week).  Check out all of the results below, and find your favorite or most hated personality to see how they did this week.
