    phil steele is becoming a joke

    Dude puts iowa baylor ucla and Houston in his top 8 "surprise teams" even though all four have starting qb's and most starters back from good teams. Iowa baylor and hou all DD wins last yr but he calls them a surprise to do well in 2016.

    Thanks captain obvious

    What will u tell us next? That golden state cleveland, San antone and okc are surprise teams to make a finals run next year?

    this guy is becoming a joke ever since he joined espn. He's scared to death to take a chance on any teams but he'll tell us over n over again in each preseason annual that in 1964 he predicted east Alaska state school of deaf and blind would win 7 games for the first time in their history and go to the bluebonnet bowl

    Phil Steele..lol

    Does he provide any useful gambling info? Like ATS projections. What would I do with a top 8 projection that goes 3-10 ATS?

    He does give picks against the spread on many radio programs and does quite well.

    Can't even call him a tout anymore. Problem w/ Steele is that NONE of his information is geared toward ATS. Just info that won't lead u to winners' circle.

    QB is just one man. UCLA only returns 4 starters on offense, Houston returns 5 on defense they gave up almost 280 yards/game last year in the secondary.

    A "friend of mine" has been a subscriber to Phil "The Animal" Steele for many years. Overall he appears to be only a .500 capper. His forte seems to be pre-season NFL where, I would say he's hittin about 56% Last 10 years.

    He has nothing to lose by doing this.

    - You guys will talk about him
    - If he gets it wrong, he was expected to
    - If he gets one right, he looks like a genius and can tout it for years

    No touts are any good, but the ones that have been in business for over a decade are there because they know how to play you.

    This thread made me so happy.

    For someone who gets this magic magazine every summer pushed to glory, you think he'd be a little more accurate, or have a little more criticism?

    I went threw last year's about a week ago......Im trying to find this 'genius' in him that everyone praises..

    That's just it. His BS doesn't get by me. "I aint gettin played" as the kids like to say. I appreciate all of the work it takes to put this publication out every year. He has a tremendous staff. It's just funny how in almost every conf or let's say out of every 7 to 10 teams u will read where he reminds us that last year he called for a certain team to do X and they did it. Meanwhile he missed 5 or 6 other predictions and thinks we'll forget.

    His self promotion gets a little old at times but then again he's on espn and I'm not

    In all fairness, phone service might show a higher ATS win % than his weekly printed release.

    No need to hate on Steele. He's found a way to make money in the sports/entertainment field. And it sounds like he enjoys the process.

    What I find hilarious is that he has a section called teams who will surprise then puts 4 teams in his top 8 surprise teams who were good last year and bring back their qbs

    Well that's the thing, most people aren't you. We're on a sportsbetting forum for chrissakes, and even most of these guys fall for everything. Imagine what the rest of the country will believe.

    It's the first thing you learn in marketing -- most people are unbelievably stupid, and that's where the money is.
