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!

Week 14 2016: #ChampionshipWeek #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Week 14 is in the books and that means results are in.  With one (very small) week of Gameday left in the regular season, the race for the championship is tightening.  Let’s get right to it.

Winners this week included Lee Corso (6-3), Kirk Herbstreit (6-2), Charles Arbuckle (8-2), Colin Cowherd (4-0), Stanford Steve (3-0 straight up, 4-0 ATS), Chris Fallica (3-1 straight up, 5-2 ATS), Bruce Feldman (8-1 straight up, 5-4 ATS), Pat Forde (8-1 straight up, 2-0 ATS), Joey Galloway (4-0), Mike Golic (5-0), Kanell (5-0 straight up, 3-2 ATS), and your boy SVP (4-1 ATS), and Phil Steele (12-1 straight up, 11-10 ATS).  Our winner this week is going to be Pat Forde because it was hard to make sense of that many winners.

Losers this week were few and far between.  Our one and only big loser was Desmond Howard at 4-5 on the week.  Congratulations Desmond.  Those upsets didn’t pan out quite like you thought.

Coach Corso misses his headgear pick of Wisconsin over Penn St, bringing him to 9-6 on the year.  Our special guest celebrity Keegan-Michael Key went 8-1 on the week which I think ties him for the season high amongst celebrities.  @GamedayJen continues her hot streak going 7-2 on the week, so make sure to check her out for winners.
