Week 14 2017: #ChampionshipWeek picks are graded; results are in!

Well ladies and gentlemen, the regular season of our 2017 college football year is in the books (unless you’re like me and know the REAL season ends after Army/Navy).  I don’t know how we got here so fast, but bowl bids are out and it is the most wonderful time of the year.  We will be doing extensive bowl coverage this year as always, but let’s wrap up the regular season first.

Winners in week 14 included Kirk Herbstreit (6-2), David Pollack (4-1), Pat Forde (8-2), Joey Galloway (5-1), Les Miles (4-1), Jesse Palmer (4-2), and Dave Wannstedt (4-0).  Nobody jumped off the page with a big win this week, so we’ll give the official win to one Joseph Galloway at 5-1 on the championship games.

Losers this week included Desmond Howard (4-5), Stanford Steve (1-5 ATS, and his win wasn’t really an official pick he gave out), Danny Kanell (1-4 ATS), Brent Musburger (1-2 ATS), and your boy SVP (2-3 ATS).  We’ll give the loss to Stanford Steve this week on a tough slate of picks, which is a couple of bad weeks in a row after a red hot season.

Coach Corso went 7-2 on the week including his headgear pick Clemson over Miami FL.  Special guest celebrity Luther Campbell had a so-so week at 5-4.  @GamedayJen booked a winner at 6-3.  Everyone else was somewhere in between so check out the full slate below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.

Week 13 2017: #RivalryWeek picks are graded; results are in!

Welcome back everyone.  As we close out the regular season with sadness, it is time to review the rivalry week picks and results.

Winners this week included Andrea Adelson (7-2), Gene Chizik (6-1), Pat Forde (8-3), Danny Kanell (4-1 straight up, 4-1 ATS), Booger McFarland (7-0), Dari Nowkhah (5-0 straight up, 2-1 ATS), and Kirk Herbstreit (8-1).  This week’s official win is going to none other than professional gambler extraordinaire Rufus Peabody, who after several weeks as the official loser, has posted a 6-0 record against the spread this week.  Pretty impressive stuff.

Losers this week included Marcus Spears (3-4), Chris Fallica (4-5 straight up, 1-7 ATS, 0-1 ML), Scott Spreitzer (0-3 ATS), and Scott Van Pelt (2-6 ATS).  This week’s official loss gets credited to one of the hottest pickers this season, Stanford Steve Coughlin, who went 2-3 straight up, 0-5 against the spread, and 0-1 on the moneyline.  He still killed it during the regular season, but that’s a tough one pal.

Coach Corso went 6-3 on the week, but missed out on his headgear pick and super dog.  Special guest celebrity Charles Barkley went 4-5 on the week but got the Auburn pick right (and nearly nailed his Michigan upset).  @GamedayJen went 6-4 on the week, picking the Auburn upset in tandem with Charles Barkley just like the kick six game.
