2017-18 Season final standings & champion!

Welcome back everyone.  We have been hard at work grading picks and running numbers to come up with the 2017-18 college football season final standings here at GamedayCole.com.  As always, things are subjective when our selection committee makes its final decisions.  We take into account strength of schedule, body of work, the eye test, computer rankings, and various generic metrics when deciding which of our reporters, analysts, pundits and talking heads takes the championship.  Below you will find the full ranking of everyone from this season for your review.

Amongst all of the competitors below, I generally only include those who picked at least 100 games in the running for our championship.  Sorry to those of you who picked less games, but next year maybe try a little harder to get your hot sports takes out there on every game.  I also take into account that some of the competitors below aren’t picking a broad selection of games each week.  I’d like to congratulate Andrea Adelson, who is consistently one of our top competitors, on an outstanding season at 90-30 on the year (75% right).  She is on top of all competitors with at least 100 picks.  However, her weekly picks only involve the ACC conference, so I cannot in good conscience crown her this year’s champion.  I have heard rumblings she may be claiming this championship, and may be planning a parade through her neighborhood, and if so then I will not oppose it.

However, it is with great pleasure (or maybe great pain for a lot of you reading this) that I am proud to announce Kirk Herbstreit as our 2017-18 college football picking champion at 117-49 (70.48% right).  I’m sure this will drive all of you haters crazy, because Kirk probably hates your school the most, but the man put up a great record picking the biggest games of the week each week.  I would also like to recognize Stanford Steve Coughlin for winning our top gambler of the year for picking 54.82% against the spread this year.  He consistently ranks amongst the best when it comes to gambling, so next year make sure to pay attention if you need to pad your wallet.

With all of this now complete, we are going into hibernation for now.  We may be back with some opinion pieces in the offseason, or we may not.  Just make sure you are back next August because we vow to be here rain, sleet or snow to track the best, the worst, the most loved, and most hated personalities when it comes to picking college football games.  Thanks for reading this year.
