2014-15 College Football Championship picks! #cfbplayoff #cfbchampionship #ohiostate #oregonducks

It seems like yesterday we were just starting this 2014-15 season of college football, and yet here we are with one game left.  The first ever FBS college football playoff champion will be crowned in Arlington, Tx Monday night in the matchup between Oregon and Ohio State.  Along with a game of this magnitude comes more picks than you could possibly handle (or at least a lot).  Anyone and everyone ESPN can trot out there on one of their networks wants to get a pick in on this game, so we will be tracking them and updating this post with the most up to date picks available.

Our current group of picks from our experts are standing at 28 to 20 in favor of the UNDERDOG Ohio State, including a final parting shot from Brady Hoke who predicted “Ohio” to beat Oregon Monday night.  Check back over the next 48 hours leading up to the game for the latest updates to see who your favorite (or most hated) personality picked in the biggest game in college football history.

Week 10 2012: Results are in!

It was a fantastic Saturday of football this week, as I’m sure you know. Four big games that all had big potential and all delivered spectacularly. Our experts did pretty well this week, with several of them going undefeated this week. There were lots of stickers and gold stars issued this week while grading picks. That being said, things were VERY close to turning out very differently. If LSU or Notre Dame didn’t completely collapse, or if Oregon had been slowed down just a bit by USC, or if several other close games turned out differently we would be looking at results like last week. Anyways, star performances this week go to Mike Bellotti at 9-1, Tom Luginbill at 6-0, Colin Cowherd at 6-1, and Kirk Herbstreit at 11-2. Our celebrity guest Lolo Jones did a mediocre 6-4 to nobody’s surprise. Losers this week include BCS guru Brad Edwards at 3-5, Todd McShay at 3-3 (who missed a DOUBLE upset special), and Jason Sehorn at 8-5. I’d also like to say Matt Stinchcomb WELCOME TO THE .500 CLUB! He went 4-0 to break 50% finally. Dropped from the rankings this week is Brock Huard because he only has ten games in my record and never shows up to pick anything. Brock, you have been Matt-Millened. Check below for the full results and find your favorite or most hated personality.

Update: I somehow managed to completely miss this week’s big winner. Lee Corso blew the roof off this thing going 14-0 including the Whittier over Occidental pick. Coach still has it going on for sure.
