Week 7 2015: College picks are graded; results are in! #cfb #cfbpicks

Week 7 was hyped as a big weekend in college football, and I would say it lived up to every bit of the hype and more.  We saw close games between ranked teams and one of the craziest finishes we’ve seen in the history of the sports.  Last week we had many close games which all fell the right way for our panel of expert predictors and prognosticators.  This week many of those close games fell the opposite way, and results this week were the roughest of this season.

Winners this week included solid performances from David Pollack (5-0), Tim Tebow (4-0), Paul Finebaum (5-1), Greg McElroy (4-0), Pat Forde (18-7), and Danny Kanell (10-3).  I enjoy kicking Mark May in the nuts as much as anyone, but he went 3-1 on the week so I give credit where it is due.  Ryen Russillo went 7-1 on the week, including a 3-0 performance against the spread as well.  However, our undisputed winner on the week was none other than Phil Steele at 12-1-1 (and 3-0-1 against the spread!).  He was the only one of our experts to somehow successfully navigate the Stanford-Alabama-Michigan State-LSU-Notre Dame-Oregon terrain.  When people tell me it is easy to pick straight up winners in this game, I ask them to look at a week like this.  Congratulations Phil; we are sending the trophy your way for this week.

Losers this week included Chris Fallica (6-11, 3-7 ATS), Scott Van Pelt (2-3 ATS), and Brad Edwards (3-4, 1-2 ATS), but unfortunately our official loss will go to Dari Nowkah, who went 0-5 on the week and 0-3 against the spread.  His five picks were bundled up together on three games total, so that’s tough to overcome when things go wrong.  Sorry Dari; better luck next week.

Our special guest celebrity Steve Spurrier went 4-6 on the week.  That’s a tough start to a career picking games for someone that we may be seeing on ESPN or Gameday more often in the future.  Jennifer had a tough week, but still booked a winner at 7-5 including an upset special going with Michigan State over Michigan in the Big House.  Lee Corso got his headgear pick wrong, continuing a pretty rough year for headgear picks.  Charley the cat also lost another one, so Charley and Corso stay even this week at 2-5 on the headgear games.

  1. You ever consider doing a running total. This site is great to just see how the “experts” are doing, but be great to see a YTD. Unless i missed it.

    Great site.

    1. I’ll be posting some mid-season rankings soon so stay tuned. Thanks for reading!
