Week 11 2017: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

This season just keeps getting better and better as we saw after week 11.  Some big upsets, some fantastic games, and some historic performances from our expert pickers and prognosticators here at GamedayCole.com.

Winners this week included Kirk Herbstreit (8-3), Desmond Howard (8-4), Marcus Spears (6-1), Chris Doering (7-2), Scott Spreitzer (3-1 ATS), and your boy SVP (6-2 ATS).  Some nice performances from this week, but this week’s winner will be covered below.

Losers this week included Brent Musburger (1-3 ATS), Dusty Dvoracek (2-3 ATS), Stanford Steve (2-6 ATS), Andrea Adelson (3-4) and Paul Finebaum (2-3).  We’ll give this week’s loss to Big Game Brent so he can enjoy the dunce cap this week.

Coach Corso knocked it out of the park this week going 10-2 straight up.  He missed his Super Dog pick of ECU+5.5, and missed his headgear pick Notre Dame, but still a really strong performance.  Who could possibly top 10-2 on the week?  Gather round your children and grandchildren, and remember where you were Saturday when you watched College Gameday because we saw history being made.  This week’s winner is none other than special guest celebrity Alex Rodriguez, who came in and dropped a 12-0 record on College Gameday this week!  That is the first time a celebrity guest has won the week since Jake Owen posted an 11-0 record on 11/2/2013.  This also means A-Rod set a new record for celebrity guests at 12-0 after passing Jake Owen.  Given the fact that they rarely pick more than 10 games on Gameday, this is a record which will probably never be broken.  Truly historic.

@GamedayJen posted a win at 8-4 on the week, while @TheGamedayBaby missed her public fade of the week taking UTEP+24 vs UNT.  That’s three losers in a row from the baby, so maybe she needs to rethink this plan.

Everyone else is somewhere in between so check out the full slate of results below to find out how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week!

2016-17 #CFBPlayoff Championship pick big board megapost! #BowlMania #Bama #Clemson

Well we’ve got one game left in this season, and I have to wonder where the season went.  Seems like yesterday we were kicking off the season knowing this would be Tennessee’s year (again), or Leonard Fournette’s Heisman to lose (again), and it was surely [insert your team]’s year to make a big splash.  But many months later we sit here and look at this remaining game on the schedule and see a rematch from last year.  No complaints from me with this matchup of course, so let’s get on with it.  It is time for our annual championship big board megapost, and we will be updating all the way through kickoff on Monday night so check back for the latest!

Our experts are currently sitting at 25-20 in favor of Alabama over Clemson straight up.  For gamblers, we are at 3-2 in favor of Alabama laying the points.  2 experts are on the under.
