Week 13 2015: College picks are graded; results are in! #cfb #rivalryweek #cfbpicks

Welcome back college football fans.  Week 13 was rivalry week in our beloved sport, and it lived up to all expectations in my book.  Some of our experts had great weeks and some had not-so-great weeks, so let’s dive right in.

Winners this week include Kirk Herbstreit (8-3), David Pollack (11-3), Tim Tebow (6-2), Marcus Spears (7-1), Colin Cowherd (4-1), Chris Doering (6-2), Brad Edwards (4-1, 2-1 ATS), Mike Golic (5-1), Trevor Matich (8-1, 2-1 ATS), and Booger McFarland (7-3).  When it came time to decide this week’s winner, we had a dilemma.  Greg McElroy came in with a perfect 9-0 week while Phil Steele came in at 13-2 on the week.  Just like the playoff committee, I have to weigh resume, the eye test, common picks, strength of schedule, and so on.  On common picks, McElroy has the one game edge with the Ole Miss pick (the others being Clemson and Alabama).  However, his resume takes a hit due to the easy Tennessee pick.  Steele takes the upper hand on resume, the eye test and strength of schedule.  Since this is subjective, worth nothing in real life, and my blog, I am making a possibly controversial decision.  Let’s congratulate our week 13 winner Phil Steele, who edged out the undefeated McElroy with an insane 7-1 record against the spread this week!

All of our losers this week can thank Vegas for their performances this week.  While Phil Steele printed money this week picking against the spread, our losers may have some angry bookies looking for them this week.  Robert Smith went .500 on the week at 5-5, but with a 1-4 record against the spread he may be owing some money somewhere.  Stanford Steve Coughlin went 4-6 on the week, and 2-3 against the spread.  Chris “The Bear” Fallica went 5-12 on the week, which included a rough 2-8 record against the spread.  You’d think that would normally be enough to take this week’s official loss, but it wasn’t.  Scott Van Pelt had an utter disaster yesterday, going 0-5 against the spread.  Normally one of our strongest experts against the number, his refusal to take a favorite this week may have been his downfall.  At least amongst our panel of experts, picking the underdog was not a winning strategy this week.

Lee Corso continues his downfall on headgear picks this season.  After almost murdering David Pollack with an errant shotgun blast, his Oklahoma State headgear pick yesterday lost again, bringing his record to 3-10 on the year.  Charley the Cat picked Oklahoma State as well, bringing her to 4-9 on the year.  Jennifer was a serious contender this week at 10-3 but missed out on her upset special of Michigan over Ohio State.  Celebrity guest Rickie Fowler booked a winner at 7-4 on this week.  Everyone else was somewhere in the middle, so check out the full slate of results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week!
