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.

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.
