Ask the Experts, Season 3: Week 4

Coming off the worst week of the season thus far, the Experts look to bounce back from their miserable 20-28 overall performance last week.  Even Clucko, normally reliable for a 4-4 split, fell through the cracks, only picking one of his eight games correctly last week.  However, Eric Dannenbaum weathered the storm and managed to pull of a 5-3 week that boosted him into a tie for third.  This week, the experts are faced with only the worst matchups from around the world of football, as only one team on the slate has a winning record.  This is likely to be the hardest week of all, as they struggle to figure out matchups with schools like Bowling Green, North Texas and Florida Atlantic.


Brandon: 13-11 (.541)
Will: 12-12 (.500)
Holden: 11-13 (.458)
Eric: 11-13 (.458)
Clucko: 9-15 (.375)
