Week 13 2013: Pick results are in, grades are up!

Our expert analysts have been on quite a roll the last few weeks.  That is now over.  We had a few big upsets this weekend, and because of that, our expert analysts collectively had a pretty rough week.  Only two big winners this week.  Desmond Howard went 6-1, including two FCS games they picked on Gameday.  Tom Luginbill went 9-3 on the week including picking LSU and Okla St.

Losers this week include our celebrity guest picker Marcus Smart at 5-6.  Other losers are Mel Kiper Jr. (2-3), Mark May (1-3), Brian Griese (1-2), Robert Smith (4-4).  We had lots of mediocre performances from some big names this week.  Lee Corso went 8-7 but nailed the upset with his headgear pick of Oklahoma St.  Herbie went 8-7, Cowherd went 7-5, Dari Nowkhah went 6-5.  No Pat Forde this week because he is too busy with Jameis Winston, college basketball, and swimming.

Upset specialist Todd McShay went 3-3, including going 1-1 on upset specials.  Brad Edwards got his upset special and continues to roll in the second half of the season with Vandy over Tennessee this week.  Mark Schlabach took the week off due to the fact that he seems to be in charge of the Jameis Winston reporting for ESPN.  Upset Specialist Jennifer went 6-6 on the week and missed her pick of KState over OU.

Everyone else is somewhere in between.  Check out the full slate below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.
