Week 10 2018: #CFB Picks w/ Chris ‘The Bear’ Fallica & Stanford Steve!

Good evening everyone.  I hope you’re having a wonderful Halloween night.  I just finished up with the Stanford Steve & The Bear podcast and here’s the picks as I understood them.  The gentlemen threw around a LOT of games where they were on the fence about whether to give them out or not.  It was difficult to tell whether some were official or not.  Stanford Steve never gives out this many official picks, so some of these are probably not official in regards to his ESPN Chalk column.  Please listen to the podcast yourself if you’re looking to invest in these picks to be sure.  Anyways, here’s the picks.

2018-19 CFB Season: Mid-season grades!

Welcome back everyone.  We just completed week 9 of our 2018-19 college football season and that’s probably about halfway through the year.  I’m not really sure.  With a week 0, a single Army-Navy game in week 14, conference championship weekend, and bowl games, it is hard to tell.  So yeah, I’m calling it halfway.

Every year I like to stop down halfway through the season and post the season grades and standings.  The pressure is on down the home stretch to make big moves picking games since I assume all of these people read my blog.  Here’s the mid-season grades.  Enjoy.
