Week 2 2017: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Week 2 is in the books and as we prepare for week 3 it is time to review the grades for this week.

Winners this week were few and far between and included Kirk Herbstreit (7-3, 1-0 ATS), Tim Tebow (4-0), and Marcus Spears (4-1).  However this week’s official win is going to Andrea Adelson at 9-1 on the week picking a tough slate of ACC games on ESPN.com.  Congrats to Andrea on a big win this week.

Mediocre results are all over the place this week considering almost nobody gave OU a chance to beat Ohio State, and Stanford over USC was this week’s chic underdog pick.   Losers include Paul Finebaum at 1-3, Colin Cowherd at 0-3, Joey Galloway at 1-3, Danny Kanell went 2-4 straight up and 3-3 ATS, Dari Nowkhah went 1-3 straight up and 1-1 ATS, Ryen Russillo went 1-2 ATS, and your boy SVP went 1-3-1 ATS.  I guess we’ll give this week’s loss to Colin Cowherd even though he only picked three games.

Coach Corso narrowly missed out on winning this week, going 8-2 straight up and 1-0 against the spread.  He missed his headgear pick Ohio St, bringing him to 2-1 on the season.  @GamedayJen booked another winner at 7-4 missing several close games, but she happens to be the ONLY expert who picked Oklahoma to beat Ohio State.  By my counts, that is 17 of 18 experts who picked Ohio State.  How bout dat?  Special guest celebrity Eddie George had a so-so week going 6-4.  That puts him behind Sam Hunt in week 1.  I have Sam Hunt officially down as 7-1 but Gameday is crediting him with 8-1 in week 1, but they skipped one of his picks due to time constraints.  Everyone else is somewhere in between so check out the full slate below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.
