Week 1 2019: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in (corrected)

I posted grades last night and was quickly informed they contained a number of errors.  I wrote a new grading script in the offseason and forgot to account for one teeny tiny aspect of neutral site games and it blew things apart for week 1.  I think I’ve got the script fixed and here are the corrected grades.  If you find any other errors please make sure to roast me on social media as usual.

Week 13: Results

My most sincere apologies to everyone for not updating this weekend.  Working retail, I’m sure you can imagine that I didn’t have much free time this weekend.  However, I burned through my DVR and got all the picks, all the results, and here’s how it looks.  A pretty good week overall for our panel of experts.  This week’s big winners are Jesse Palmer (6-0), Lee Corso (12-1), Bo Jackson (9-1), and my girlfriend Jennifer who went on a MONSTER run going 17-3 this week.  Our losers this week were Howie Schwab (who continues to slide after an 0-2 week), and Matt Stinchcomb (0-3 this week, but come on man.
