Week 7 2016: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Week 7 was another great one for college football.  Some scary close games for some of the top teams and a few surprising losses along the way as well.  Let’s get right into this week’s results.

Winners this week included Lee Corso (7-3), Kirk Herbstreit (9-2), David Pollack (4-0), Andrea Adelson (5-2), Kevin Carter (16-3), Chris Doering (4-2), Chris Fallica (4-2 straight up, 6-2 ATS, very nice), Booger McFarland (5-1), and SVP (1-0 straight up, 3-2 ATS).  However this week’s winner, making it an unprecedented 3 out 4 weeks on top, is @GamedayJen who went 11-2 straight up and 0-1 against the spread.  She managed to navigate the WVU/Stanford/Wash St trifecta successfully and pulled out Clemson and Ohio State by the skin of her teeth.  I heard the muffin basket and cheese platter never made it to your office at GamedayCole.com HQ so the vendor will be fixing that order soon.

Losers this week included all of our bettors against the spread (aside from The Bear), but I’m awarding a special three way tie for this week’s loss.  Even though they all went .500 on the week, Tim Tebow, Marcus Spears, and Paul Finebaum managed to unanimously pick their slate of four games together, and managed to go 2-2 with their powers combined.  Usually picking apart that SEC slate is pretty easy most weeks so I was certainly amused by it.

Corso is back on track this season with another win in his headgear picks, going with Ohio State over Wisconsin.  Special guest celebrity Ric Flair went 6-4 which is pretty solid compared to the dumpster fire that the guest picking has become on Gameday.  Everyone else is somewhere in between so check out the full slate below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.
