In a normal year, a 7-6 week picking college football games
against the spread would be something to hang your hat on. But this
is far from a normal year. First of all, Wolverine Sports Magazine
host Doug Karsch’s 7-6 week kept the celebrities’ lead
at two games. Karsch also extended the celebrities’ record to
an outlandish 12 games above .500.
But the Daily beat writers are catching up to their guests.
Although he gave the Hoosiers too much credit, Gennaro Filice moved
into the pack with a 9-4 effort because of wins by Northwestern and
Chris Burke ran himself in front of his colleagues with an 8-5
week, but subpar efforts by Oregon State and Tennessee held him
back from catching Karsch. Burke does deserve credit for being the
only one to take Ohio State in women’s soccer (The Wolverines
and the Buckeyes tied). But it should be noted that it was he who
made the spread. The soccer and field hockey games do not count in
the season standings.
Sharad Mattu and Bob Hunt didn’t fare as well, as both
were hoping on the luck of the Irish.
