Week 1 2015: Picks are graded; results are in!

Week 1 saw a lot of picks and a great mix of tough games to pick along with cupcakes.  The emphasis on gambling on college football from our expert prognosticators makes things more exciting than ever around these parts.

Big winners this week included David Pollack (5-0), Paul Finebaum (6-1), Greg McElroy (8-1), Dari Nowkhah (8-2), Pat Forde (24-5), and Phil Steele (24-3).  Our big winner on the week was Trevor Matich (7-0) since he picked a full slate of tough games this week.

The only loser we will feature this week is none other than legendary picker Mark May, who was the lone soul picking Virginia Tech to beat Ohio State.  His pick looked promising going into the half, but after the loss of a starting QB Virginia Tech just could not hang.

Lee Corso went 9-4 on the week including a correct pick on the headgear going with Alabama.  Celebrity guest Brad Paisley went 8-3 on the week with a solid showing.  Bear’s Bank went 1-2 on the week so Fallica is off to a bad start with his new feature on Gameday.  Jennifer went 11-3 on the week while Charley the Cat went 0-1 picking Wisconsin over Alabama.  Everyone else was somewhere in between, so check out the full slate of results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week!
