Welcome back everyone to the FIRST EVER GAMEDAYCOLE.COM NCAA MARCH MADNESS PICK EXTRAVAGANZA!  At the request of @WesReynolds1 I decided to see what I could put together in one single hour for NCAA hoops tournament picks.  I don’t generally watch much NCAA basketball, so I don’t know who half of these people are but I assume they are experts.  Take a look at all of the picks and make sure you credit me when you win your pool!

Week 1 2016: College football picks are graded; results are up! #CFB #CFBPicks

Week 1 is in the books, and I think we can all safely say that “The greatest opening week of all time” not only delivered, but may have been underhyped.  We saw tremendous matchups, exciting finishes, and some surprising upsets.  That made predicting the outcomes a difficult task for some, so let’s dive right in.

Winners this week include David Pollack (7-2), Charles Arbuckle (5-3), Paul Finebaum (9-4), Pat Forde (24-8), Joey Galloway (5-2), Greg McElroy (5-2), Dari Nowkhah (7-2), and Tim Tebow (6-2).  We had a handful of really good weeks but I’m not sure how to sort it out due to vastly different slates of picks, so all of the following will be awarded a partial win this week.  Andrea Adelson went 11-2 on the ACC picks this week.  Marcus Spears went 8-2 on the SEC picks this week.  Phil Steele went 9-3 straight up on the week and 4-4 on a really tough week against the spread.  And of course a special gold star goes out to Scott Van Pelt who went 4-1 against the spread this weekend.

Losers this week include some pretty shameful performances from Stanford Steve (3-3 Straight up, 1-6 ATS), Colin Cowherd 3-6, newcomer Dusty Dvoracek (1-3 Straight up, 1-4 ATS), and Danny Kanell (2-5 Straight up, 2-4 ATS).  However, the official loss this week has to go to Chris “The Bear” Fallica, who got drilled going 1-5 straight up and 1-6 against the spread.  That is NOT a profitable week, so all of you gamblers can take it up with Fallica directly.

Lee Corso went with the LSU headgear pick and missed that one after Wisconsin took down the Bayeux Bengals.  There’s no shame in that pick, because Aaron Rodgers was the one and only person to predict a Wisconsin win.  Rodgers, the celebrity guest picker, went 8-2 on the week.  @GamedayJen went 9-3 on the week, so they both get a share of this week’s win.  @TheGamedayBaby made her debut this week going 0-1 on the LSU pick, but also went 1-0 against the spread betting on Texas.

Everyone else was somewhere in between, so check out the full slate of week 1 results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.
