Week 11 2016: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Welcome back everyone.  Week 11 of this college football season provided tremendous excitement and shocking upsets; upsets which will likely shake up very little due to 2, 3, and 4 still holding head-to-head over other top 10 tens.  Anyways, these upsets provided some very mixed results from our panel of expert prognosticators so let’s jump right in.

Winners this week were few and far between.  Winners included Stanford Steve (5-2 straight up, 5-3 ATS), Chris Doering (5-2), and not much else.  @GamedayJen went 10-5 on the week continuing her hot streak, but she fell just short of our week 11 winners.  This week’s winner blew out the competition.  Our week 11 winner was none other than Phil Steele; a man due for a win in a big way.  Phil went 18-7 straight up, but also went an astounding 20-6 against the spread.  If you followed Phil’s public picks this week then you are probably looking for new residence on your own private island with your winnings.  Congratulations Phil, you can expect this week’s congratulatory gift certificate to the Sizzler so I hope you enjoy it.

Losers this week were all over the place.  Herbie McHerbstreit went 5-8 on the week.  Marcus Spears went 3-4 on SEC Nation.  Dusty Dvoracek went 2-1 straight up on the week, but somehow managed an 0-5 week against the spread.  The Bear went 2-4 straight up and a solid 2-7 against the spread.  Bruce Feldman went 5-6 straight up and 3-7-1 against the spread.  Joseph Galloway went 3-4 on the week.  Everyone’s favorite Danny Kanell went 2-4 straight up and 1-1 ATS.  SVP’s Winners went 2-3 on the week.  Since those are all pretty bad let’s just give it to Dusty Dvoracek, because an 0-5 week against the spread is pretty funny.

Lee Corso’s headgear pick missed on another one, going with Washington over USC.  Special guest celebrity Joel McHale continued this season’s trend of showing up ill prepared, providing little-to-no contribution to the show, but managed a 7-4 record this week.  I’m sure it is much harder than I realize to track down celebrities relevant to the home team, but could we not at least get someone who likes football to show up for this?  I remember a time before special celebrity guests on College Gameday, and they got along just fine without Katy Perry throwing corndogs at the camera crew (even though that has become a classic moment).  So make sure to write your congressman or Lee Fitting and let them know you demand change.

Anyways, everyone else is down below to check out the full slate of results to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality ended up!
