Week 8 2014: Results are in, picks are graded! #cfb #saturdayselections

We had a fun day of college football yesterday with lots of picks and predictions, some great performances, and some painful performances from our panel of experts.

Winners this week include Greg McElroy (5-2), Phil Steele (12-3), Colin Cowherd (8-4), and Booger McFarland (5-1).  Our co-weekly champions are Lee Corso (10-1) and Robert Smith (6-0), who both put up strong performances including the KState/OU upset.

Losers this week include Kirk Herbstreit (4-5) and Jason Sehorn (2-4), but our undisputed loser of the week would be Dr. Lou Holtz, who put up an impressive 1-4 (but at least he got that KState upset).

Our celebrity guest picker, Ken Griffey Jr., put up a solid 6-3 record this week.  Lee Corso nailed the headgear pick again picking the Seminoles to take down the Irish.  Jennifer continues to hang around, going 6-4 on the week, and Charley the cat continues to fall behind Coach Corso with her pick of Notre Dame over FSU.  Corso is 7-1 on the Saturday headgear picks, while harley falls to 5-3 on the year.  A lot of football left to be played.  Tim Tebow continues to show his human flaws, posting a 3-2 week.  The one game in particular that killed everyone was Florida/Mizzou, with Pat Forde (30-6) being the only one who picked Mizzou.  Our worst pick of the week is shared by Jason Sehorn and Kevin Carter, who both picked Texas A&M to upset Alabama.  Close, but no cigar.
