Week 1 2014: Results are in, grades are posted! #saturdayselections

It was a pretty good week for our panel of experts picking football games this week, and we are excited for the debut of several new members to our group of experts.  With the launch of the SEC network, we are welcoming the greatest 3rd string quarterback in NFL history, Tim Tebow, along with Marcus Spears to our panel.  It looks like they will be making picks at the end of the SEC Network pseudo-Gameday each week, so we will be watching closely.  We also welcome to the team the overly handsome Greg McElroy who will likely be joining the Dari & Mel Saturday morning broadcast.  Tim and Marcus started off the season 4-0, with Greg going 5-0.  Pretty nice little debut.

Winners this week include Desmond Howard (10-1), Lee Corso (9-1), Kirk Herbstreit (9-1), Robert Smith (6-1), Pat Forde (27-4), and Phil Steele (7-1).  Losers this week were in short supply, so we will give it to special guest celebrity Stone Cold Steve Austin (5-4) and Trevor Matich (1-2).  However, our undisputed Week 1 champion is without a doubt Colin Cowherd, who posted a perfect 12-0 on the week.

Other notable personalities include my wife Jennifer, who posted a solid 8-3 on the week, as well as Charley the Cat, who went 1-0 picking FSU over Oklahoma State.  Charley the Cat will be replacing Billy the Cat, who retired unexpectedly mid-season last year, and Charley will be going head to head with Lee Corso’s headgear picks to finally answer the ultimate question:  who is better at picking big games?  Lee Corso, or our cat?
