Week 7 2017: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

What a day of college football Saturday brought us this week!  Four top ten teams dropping to unranked opponents.  No ranked-vs-ranked matchups they said.  No exciting games they said.  If you look back at 2007, these days can come when least expected.  Let’s get right into the wacky results from this week’s picks.

Winners this week include Tim Tebow (5-1), Stanford Steve Coughlin (6-0-1 ATS), Chris Doering (6-1), The Bear Chris Fallica (7-2-1 ATS, 1-0 ML), and your boy SVP (5-2 ATS).  However we are going to give this week’s win to Desmond Howard at 10-1 straight up, 1-0 ATS, and his super dog pick Arizona State winning outright!  His biggest accolade to this day was a Heisman trophy, but no doubt the week 7 2017 blue ribbon will make a prominent place in his trophy case once it arrives at his house.  Congrats Des!

Mediocre performances this week were turned in by Kirk Herbstreit (7-5), Paul Finebaum (3-3), and Brent Musberger (0-2 ATS).  We have to give this week’s loss to Rufus Peabody again at 1-3 ATS.  He’s struggling mightily this season, at least in his podcast picks, which is surprising from the most consistent gambling winner we’ve seen prior to this season.  I’m sure he’ll turn it around, so get on his bets for the upswing.  I’m sure he’d love me saying he’s due!

Lee Corso turned in a losing week at 5-7, but got his James Madison headgear pick right.  The fake James Madison, Gene Wojciechowski, went 4-6 on the week.  Pretty impressive that an actual college football reporter from ESPN posted a losing record picking against Tim McGraw and Keegan-Michael Key.  @GamedayJen put up a solid 8-4 winner this week as she continues her march to victory this season.

Everyone else is somewhere in between so check out the full slate of results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week!
