Week 7 2014: Results are in, picks are graded! #saturdayselections #cfb

After a slight delay, Cole’s Gameday Blog is back in action bigger and better than ever (but mostly the exact same).  We had a family emergency which meant blogging about college football took a back seat to real life and we went MIA for a few days.  Blood was shed, eyebrows were singed, small animals were sacrificed, ninjas were fended off, and the house still smells a little bit like pickles, but adversity was overcome and everything is going to be fine.

Now we can get back to the business at hand.  It was another up-and-down week like last week, but this week was more up than down.  Winners this week included David Pollack (5-2), Dari and Mel (both 3-1), Greg McElroy (5-0), Booger McFarland (5-1), Marcus Spears (4-1), Brett McMurphy (5-0), Lou Holtz (4-1), and Colin Cowherd (8-3).  Todd McShay made his comeback this week after a recent absence, going 4-1.  Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith have woken back up to college football in recent weeks, and both went 3-1.  However, this week’s undisputed champion is hall of famer (both College Football, and Cole’s Gameday Blog Hall of Famer) Mike Bellotti, who went on a 7-1 tear this week.

Pretty solid week with lots of winners, right?  Well you may have noticed some very notable names not listed above.  Losers this week include Lee Corso (5-7),  Kirk Herbstreit (5-7), Desmond Howard (5-6), Paul Finebaum (2-3), Charles Arbuckle (2-3), Jon Berger (2-4), Joey Galloway (1-3), and our undisputed loser of the week, Trevor Matich (1-4).  Better luck next week guys.

Lee Corso nailed his headgear pick, going with Mississippi State over Auburn.  Charley the cat also picked Mississippi State, so they continue to be neck-and-neck on the year.  Special guest picker Jonathan Papelbon drunkenly stumbled his way to a 5-4 record this week, but he gets bonus points for the suit he wore.  Jennifer continues to rack up points on the Gameday crew, going 7-5 on the week including her upset special (Miss St over Auburn).  Tim Tebow continues his landslide into mediocrity, going 3-2 this week.  He might be human after all.  If you have been keeping score at home, you probably noticed that this whole SEC network cast of characters is pretty damn strong when it comes to picking games, with Greg McElroy leading the way at 85.37% on his picks this season.  Maybe next week I will power rank the channels based on their regular analysts.
