Phil Steele is a recent addition to the blog, but he has been around the game doing this longer than most.  Famous for his yearly college football preview, he 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, 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 Championship Drive podcasts, Twitter and CFB Daily’s The Edge.  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!
