Bowl Season 2011-12: A few more

Here’s a couple more experts with a couple more picks for Bowl Season.  Tomorrow when bowl season starts, I’ll be able to see a lot more people’s picks on ESPN’s Bowl Mania page, but unfortunately those don’t go public until the games are live.  That’s too bad for all of you who wanted to see all of Scott Van Pelt’s picks so you could copy them on your own pick’em group, but I’ll be back to post the picks and track them nonetheless.  Happy bowl season.Clemson over WVU

Bowl Season: Colin Cowherd 2011 picks

Here’s Colin Cowherd’s picks for Bowl season 2011-12.  I picked them up on Facebook’s bowl picking app.  I’m not sure if they are actually from him or if its some ESPN intern posting them on his behalf, but for all of the picks I pull from Facebook I pretty much say that if they didn’t want those picks associated with their name then they shouldn’t have joined that bowl picking app anyways.  Enjoy.

2011 Regular Season Standings

Well after 14 weeks we are through the regular season and I thought I’d stop by and post a quick update with the 2011 standings.  Lee Corso is the only expert to top the century mark with 100 correct picks on the year.  On a comical note, Desmond Howard and Kirk Herbstreit are right behind him with 91 and 90 correct picks respectively… except that Herby has twice as many wrong picks.  Ooops.  David Pollack had a solid regular season on his first year on Gameday.  Jesse Palmer went a sharp 39-7 on the year.  Matt Stinchcomb decided to pick upsets the entire year and is the only one aside from the Schwab that I tracked with a losing record on the season.  The Celebrity Guests were pretty mediocre this year.  In past years they’ve been pretty sharp (or whoever tells them who to pick is pretty sharp) but they went 62-42.  And of course my girlfriend Jennifer was neck and neck with both David Pollack and Skip Bayless.  Not bad Jennifer.

BUT HOLD ON.  We can have big shakeups in bowl season.  I’ll be updating as the picks roll in.  Don’t be surprised to see me post an expert picking Team A over Team B, and then see me post a week later with the reverse, because everyone flip flops during bowl season as things develop.  However I’ll still post it as I see it, and as always, the last decision they make is the one going in the official record.
