Week 13 2012: Results are in!

We’ve been tallying results and counting ballots and putting different colored beans into different containers to add up all of the results for this weekend; made only better by SHOWDOWN SATURDAY!  There were a few really good performances from our experts, a few really bad ones, and most of them right in the middle.  This week”s big winner would be Colin Cowherd at 10-2, with other winners being Pat Forde at 19-5, and Lee Corso at 9-2.  Lee Corso got his headgear pick right, pushing his record to 20-0 all time when picking a game USC is involved in.  Pretty impressive stuff for sure.  Our big loser this week was Mark May at 1-3.  Poor Mark.  Not only are you doing very poorly this season with your picks, but you get to hear from Lou Holtz every day who happens to be on a huge roll himself.  Other poor performances were David Pollack at 4-3 and Desmond Howard at 5-4.  Our guest celebrity picker Landon Donovan went 5-5, as the guest overall record continues to slide.  I remember when they used to get people on who knew something about football.  Oh well.  Everyone else finished somewhere in the middle, so look below to find your favorite or most hated personality and see how they did.
