2016-17 College Football season results! #CFB

Welcome back everyone.  With the addition of @thegamedaybaby to our family things kind of got away from me towards the end of the football season and we forgot to post season results.  We are back to provide results and announce the winner finally!

As always, everything is subjective since everyone is picking different games each week.  We are comparing the overall body of work and then our distinguished panel of one decides who are the winners and losers.  Experts who focus on single conferences don’t generally qualify, and the sample size is definitely a big factor.  With that being said, let’s get down to it.  We are proud to announce that the 2016-17 Season Champion, for the second year in a row, is none other than Mr. Phil Steele!  Phil went 257-93 (73.43%) straight up by our counts.  He was in 2nd place behind @GamedayJen heading into bowl season, but a strong bowl performance was enough to edge out Jen for the season title.  Since we focus on straight up picks, I’m also awarding a gold star to Chris Fallica for going 55.14% against the spread this season (78-63-5).

Everyone else is listed below, so check it out to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this season!

2016-17 #CFBPlayoff Championship pick big board megapost! #BowlMania #Bama #Clemson

Well we’ve got one game left in this season, and I have to wonder where the season went.  Seems like yesterday we were kicking off the season knowing this would be Tennessee’s year (again), or Leonard Fournette’s Heisman to lose (again), and it was surely [insert your team]’s year to make a big splash.  But many months later we sit here and look at this remaining game on the schedule and see a rematch from last year.  No complaints from me with this matchup of course, so let’s get on with it.  It is time for our annual championship big board megapost, and we will be updating all the way through kickoff on Monday night so check back for the latest!

Our experts are currently sitting at 25-20 in favor of Alabama over Clemson straight up.  For gamblers, we are at 3-2 in favor of Alabama laying the points.  2 experts are on the under.
