2017-18 College Gameday Season Preview!

And we are back.  As of this morning we have officially survived another offseason with the kickoff of Florida A&M vs Texas Southern.  However, we all know it was open season with the return of College Gameday an hour before those two teams kicked off.  Our Gameday crew was back spitting hot takes and wild ass predictions for this season.  These are usually wildly inaccurate by the end of the season, however they reminded us last year Kirk Herbstreit predicted Clemson over Alabama in the championship game on the season preview.  Without further adieu, here are this year’s official preseason predictions (along with hot picks from @GamedayJen), so bookmark this page and come see us again in January.

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!
