The great one closed out the 2012 season last week with a not-so-great pick.
Shad had just one pick to make, New Town at Perryville in a Class 1A State Semifinal. The guru thought he had had it all worked out, but the visiting Titans had other thoughts. The pick, Perryville wins, 30-21. The result, New Town won, 28-27.
So, until next year, later.
Last week's record: 0-1.
Shad's all-time record: 1,801-683, 72.5 percent.
