Week 9 2014: Picks are graded, results are in! #cfb #saturdayselections

Week 9 brought us some great performances both on the field and off of it.  LSU with another 4th quarter comeback against a top 3 opponent; TCU dropping 82 on a poor Texas Tech team; Utah winning a thriller against USC.  We had some true winners amongst our panel of expert prognosticators this week, and somehow also managed the worst performance we’ve seen since the legendary 0-9 week put up by Robert Smith in Week 8 of 2013.  Let’s dive right in

Winners this week were too many to point out, so the following will be highlighted: Lee Corso (9-2), David Pollack (5-1), Marcus Spears (5-0), Kevin Carter (10-3), Colin Cowherd (9-2), and Trevor Matich (5-1).  This week’s co-champions would have to be Desmond Howard, at an impressive 10-1 (thanks to that no-pick on the Michigan game) and celebrity guest picker Jase Robertson, who went a perfect 9-0 on the week.

We only had two real losers this week, the first of which is Mel Kiper Jr. at 1-3.  The second loser this week, who went on Gameday and absolutely squatted over the desk to relieve himself during the pick segment, is special guest celebrity picker Willie Robertson, who put up an impressive 1-8 record this week.  He went with the upset in every single game, and only managed to get the LSU pick right.  Pretty impressive actually.  Combined with his appearance last year (6-4), this brings Willie to 7-12 all time in the rankings.

Coach Corso nailed another headgear pick this week, going with LSU over Ole Miss.  He is on a warpath this year with the headgear picks sitting at 9-1 on the season.  Jennifer continues to put up the big numbers at 8-3 this week, although she missed the upset special of Washington over Arizona State.  Charley the Cat continues her downfall, losing the Ole Miss pick.  Our last note includes the re-emergence of Kirk Herbstreit with an 8-3 record this week, after several devastating weeks recently.
