Week 3 2017: #CFB picks are graded; results are in!

Week 3 is in the books and while there were some great games and exciting finishes, the results from our panel of expert pickers and prognosticators wasn’t too great.  Let’s dive right in.

Winners this week were in short supply.  Dusty Dvoracek had a nice week going 3-1 straight up and 4-2 ATS.  Phil Steele went 13-4 straight up but 8-10-1 ATS.  SVP went 5-4 ATS. Andrea Adelson went 9-1 on the week picking ACC games this week, but the slate was easier pickings this week than it was last week when she took the week at 9-1 also.  This week’s win is being credited by our official scorekeeper to Kirk Herbstreit at 9-3 straight up and 1-0 ATS.  He managed to nail the Kentucky over S.Carolina pick, Memphis over UCLA, Vanderbilt over KState, Mississippi State over LSU, and his superdog Purdue+7.  Herbie make sure to keep an eye out because we are sending the golden victory sombrero your way this week!

Losers this week weren’t in great supply so much as people hanging around .500, but here’s the results.  Chris Doering went 3-4, Bruce Feldman went 5-7, and Booger McFarland went 2-3.  I guess we’ll give it to Bruce Feldman at 5-7.  The sombrero of shame is being sent to his office this week.

Lee Corso was one of this week’s unlucky losers at 5-6; also missing his headgear pick Louisville.  Special guest celebrity Rick Pitino and his buff arms went 6-5 on the week.  @GamedayJen went 6-7 this week, booking her first loss after two hot weeks to start the season.
