Week 9 2017: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Welcome back everyone.  It was a fun weekend of college football with some exciting results, and it was a tough weekend for some of our expert pickers around these parts.

Winners this week included Tim Tebow (5-1), Paul Finebaum (4-2), Gene Chizik (4-2), Chris Doering (8-0), Rufus Peabody (4-2 ATS, finally booking a nice winner), Stanford Steve (6-2 ATS), and SVP (6-2 ATS).  Lots of strong performances against the spread this week, with the win officially going to Chris ‘The Bear’ Fallica for going 8-2-1 ATS.  Very nice work Bear.

Losers this week include Joey Galloway and Jesse Palmer, who picked against each other and managed to both go 1-3.  Les Miles went 1-2.  Scott Spreitzer went 1-2-1 ATS.  However, this week’s loss has to go to Ryen Russillo at 0-4 ATS.  Too bad.

Coach Corso went 7-4 straight up, including winning his headgear pick but losing his super dog.  Special guest celebrity Jack Nicklaus came in at .500 going 5-5 on the week.  @GamedayJen had a setback at 6-6 on the week as well.
