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 13 2016: #RivalryWeek picks are graded; results are in!

Rivalry week lived up to the hype with some great games, some surprising upsets, and some impressive results from our expert panel of pickers and prognosticators.

Winners this week included Kirk Herbstreit (7-2), Desmond Howard (7-3), Andrea Adelson (7-2), Skip Bayless (6-1), Stanford Steve (4-2 straight up, 5-1 ATS), Bruce Feldman (8-3 straight up, 8-3 ATS), Pat Forde (21-9 straight up, 1-2 ATS), and Booger McFarland (5-2).  This week’s official win may end up being one of our most controversial wins of all time.  Lee Corso went 9-1 on the week which is good enough for a win most weeks.  Phil Steele went 19-5 straight up and 17-8-1 against the spread, which would almost certainly be a win any other week.  However, we had something special happen Saturday which has to be properly credited.  Marcus spears went 7-0 on the week, which is a really nice week but not anything too crazy until you look at his picks.

Marcus Spears: 7-0
RIGHT GT over Georgia
RIGHT Kentucky over Louisville
RIGHT Clemson over S.Carolina
RIGHT Miss St over Ole Miss
RIGHT Vanderbilt over Tennessee
RIGHT FSU over Florida
RIGHT Alabama over Auburn

Marcus Spears went on SEC Nation Saturday morning and called for FOUR outright upsets amongst his seven picks, going with Georgia Tech over Georgia, Kentucky over Louisville, Miss St oveR Ole Miss, and Vanderbilt over Tennessee.  Those teams were a combined 45 point underdog to their opponents and he decided they’d probably just go win outright.  I don’t remember the last time I woke up and thought to myself “you know, Kentucky is a 24 point dog to Louisville, and Louisville has the leading Heisman candidate, but I’ve got a really good feeling about this Kentucky team”.  So for that reason we have to give this week’s win to Marcus Spears for overcoming tremendous odds on his way to a 7-0 week.

Losers this week included Tim Tebow and Chris Doering dropped a nice 2-5 record on the week picking SEC games.  Scott Van Pelt’s Winners continue to slide at another 2-3 week against the spread.  But since the SEC Network experts both went 2-5 picking SEC games, let’s give them a split loss on the week.

Coach Corso is continuing a great season picking headgear, going with Ohio State over Michigan.  Special guest celebrity Orlando Pace went 7-3 on the week, with another great performance from someone who cares about football.  @GamedayJen booked another winner at 9-5, and the race for the season victory continues to tighten.  Jen is at 73.91% on the season, with Phil Steele right on her tail at 73.81% on the season, with those two being our top two competitors on the season as of today.

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.
