Week 12 2016: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Week 12 has come to a close and things made a lot more sense picking games this week than they did last week.  Sitting around watching games yesterday I thought we were headed for some bad results but I was pleasantly surprised when I got down to business and started grading picks.

Winners this week had some really great performances, and it was hard to select the official week 12 winner.  Lee Corso went 10-4 on the week.  Kirk Herbstreit went 11-2.  Desmond Howard went 12-3.  Andrea Adelson went 7-2.  Bruce Feldman went 7-3 straight up, 7-3 ATS.  Dari Nowkhah went 4-0.  However, edging out Kirk Herbstreit on the week was week 11 winner Phil Steele, who posted a 22-6 record straight up and 19-13 record against the spread.  He started slow this season but is making a serious surge in the rankings as we head towards bowl season.  Congrats Phil!  I’ve got a case of diet Mount Dew headed your way.

Losers this week included David Pollack (1-3) and Danny Kanell (2-3 straight up, 0-3 ATS), but this week’s loss will go to Kanell’s radio partner Ryen Russillo who managed to go 0-1 straight up and 0-3 ATS.

Other highlights on the week include Coach Corso getting back on track with his headgear pick this week.  He rowed the boat and it worked out big time to snap his small losing streak.  @GamedayJen was right on the cusp of another victory at 12-4 on the week, and she continues to hold off challengers for the season championship as we near the end.  Special guest celebrity Greg Jennings went 8-2 on the week.  Someone at Gameday must read my blog because they actually had a celebrity guest who seemed engaged in the show as well as had even the slightest care about the sport of football for once.  Let’s hope next week we can continue with a top-notch celebrity guest picker, but I’m sure it will probably be a pop musician who doesn’t watch football but employs a roadie who went to Michigan for a semester.

Everyone else is somewhere in between on the week so check out the full slate of results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.
