2018-19 College Football Season: Picks are graded. Final results are in; yearly champion is crowned!

We have been working tirelessly behind the scenes with our team of scientists, mathematicians, and the boys down in the lab.  The numbers have been crunched and the results are in for your 2018-19 college football season.  Without further delay, we are proud to announce Stanford Steve Coughlin as our 2018-19 college football picking champion.  Steve Coughlin put forth a 65-22 record picking games straight up on his ESPN Chalk column, which is a nice 74.71% picking record.  However, Stanford Steve blew the doors off the competition 57-29-1 AGAINST THE SPREAD which is 66.09%.  If you followed his picks and invested in them you are probably a millionaire reading this website from your new beachfront property.  This is an all-time great performance, so if you see Steve please buy him a drink for me.

Everyone else with more than 10 games picked is below, so enjoy the full 2018-19 grades below.

2018-19 Bowl Season: Picks are graded; results are in!

The 2018-19 college football season is in the books.  Here are the bowl grades to tie you over until we determine our yearly champion.  Obviously not everyone qualifies for our made-up bowl competition, so our panel of scientists has made the following determinations.

Our 2018-19 bowl season will award a straight-up champion and a gambling champion since it is hard to separate the two.  Our straight-up picking champion for this bowl season is actually a tie.  @GamedayJen and Mark Schlabach both went 26-15 on the bowl picks this year and topped all of our experts who picked a full slate of games.  Our ATS gambling champion is going to be Dusty Dvoracek at 9-3 ATS.  Nobody picked the full slate of games ATS, but nobody really had a good bowl season picking ATS, so he wins.

Congratulations to all of our competitors this year.
