Week 2 2012: Results are up!

It was a great day for all Americans and fans of college football in the world yesterday.  Lots of picks rolled in, lots of exciting games for such a supposedly boring schedule, and a few upsets to shake things up.  The results for everyone are posted below, so check it out and see how your favorite or most hated personality did.  There were quite a few cupcake picks on the schedule with so much FBS vs FCS action, but picks are picks.  Trevor Matich had a great week at 6-1, but his strength of schedule was the worst by far.  Lee Corso went a solid 7-4 after struggling last week (even though he lost his headgear pick of TAMU over Florida).  Charlie Arbuckle has to by my favorite results of the week going 8-4 but with a pretty difficult slate of picks and not a single easy game.  Pat Forde has been on an absolute tear through two weeks and went 24-7 this week.  We welcome to the rankings Brian Griese (2-2) and Christian Fauria (4-2) as well.  As much as I don’t want to track Christian Fauria’s picks, it appears ESPN will not make him go away, so he’s here for good.  And the rest are below.

Week 12 Results (ouch)

Here’s the results from Week 12 of our 2011 season.  There were some outrageous upsets this weekend, some of which we haven’t seen the likes of since the year of the upset in 2007.  Iowa St upset Oklahoma State as a four touchdown dog and there wasn’t anyone who picked that upset. Desmond Howard was the only expert to pick Baylor over Oklahoma.  Lou Holtz was the only expert to pick USC over Oregon.  If that tells you anything, that tells you that nobody had a good week this week.  Our winners this week were Jesse Palmer and Dr. Lou Holtz who both put up 5-1 records (and were pretty much the only ones to put up a reasonable winning week).  Tom Luginbill gets the silver star at 6-3.  Lee Corso is this week’s bottom of the barrel going 3-9.  My girlfriend Jennifer hit another upset special, so its a big week around here.
