2016-17 College Football season results! #CFB

Welcome back everyone.  With the addition of @thegamedaybaby to our family things kind of got away from me towards the end of the football season and we forgot to post season results.  We are back to provide results and announce the winner finally!

As always, everything is subjective since everyone is picking different games each week.  We are comparing the overall body of work and then our distinguished panel of one decides who are the winners and losers.  Experts who focus on single conferences don’t generally qualify, and the sample size is definitely a big factor.  With that being said, let’s get down to it.  We are proud to announce that the 2016-17 Season Champion, for the second year in a row, is none other than Mr. Phil Steele!  Phil went 257-93 (73.43%) straight up by our counts.  He was in 2nd place behind @GamedayJen heading into bowl season, but a strong bowl performance was enough to edge out Jen for the season title.  Since we focus on straight up picks, I’m also awarding a gold star to Chris Fallica for going 55.14% against the spread this season (78-63-5).

Everyone else is listed below, so check it out to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this season!

2016-17 Regular Season standings!

We have put the final nail in the coffin of our 2016-17 regular season with the completion of Army-Navy on Saturday.  Before we unleash Bowl Mania picks (which will be an absolute BONANZA of picks), we need to take a look at the season standings below.

As always, we take the body of work provided by all of our expert pickers when our voting committee (of one) decides who wins on any given week or season.  Our top competitors have been neck and neck all season long, and we are pleased to award @GamedayJen with her first ever regular season championship!  She came in at 148-50 on the season for an average of 74.75%.  She barely outnicked Phil Steele with a week 15 5-0 record picking Army-Navy and some fun FCS, D2 and D3 games against the Gameday crew.  Phil Steele and Joey Galloway, along with Jen, were in a virtual 3-way tie the entire season at the top.  Bowl Season is always where one can make or break a season, and where legends are made.  Stay tuned throughout bowl season for a ton of picks to see how the season ends up!
