Phil Steele

Famous for his yearly college football preview, Phil Steele is a man who is involved in many aspects of covering the game.  He is a master of computer-based score projections (in case you may have an interest on the spread) as well a man who claims to put in an hour each week per FBS team.  Yes, as in 128+ hours per week breaking down the week’s games.  He does bowl projections.  He ranks mascots.  He picks bowl games.  He has a legendary mustache.  Some of us think he may be a college football robot sent from the future.

Since he sells his full slate of picks each week on ESPN Insider and PhilSteele.com, I will try my best to avoid getting sued.  All of the picks I track and post of his on this blog are picks which he releases to the public each week on ESPN podcasts (Behind the Bets, Campus Conversation, etc), Twitter and any PhilSteele.com previews he releases.  If you are in desperate need of his full slate of picks each week then I suggest you pay the man his money.

We are also pleased to announce that Phil Steele is our 2015-16 season champion at 77.03% straight up and 53.53% against the spread!
