Best Pigskin Picker

Phil Steele

Seven days a week, from December through April, Phil Steele grinds to finish the nation's most consistently accurate college-football preview magazine. Every major college team -- from Ohio State to Ohio U -- gets the same head-numbing attention to detail: stats, analyses, arcane abbreviations, all laid out in teensy type. He does up to 13 radio shows a day all summer long and takes a few minutes off before the season starts. That's when it's time to kick back and take in every game he can -- from noon Saturday until the final gun on Sunday -- on the 12 TVs in his Westlake office. Guys, he's living your dream. Girls, just be glad you aren't married to him.
