  • Mandy’s dandy as Picks champ

    During the course of the 2017 Pigskin Picks season, dandy has been used to describe second-year panelist Mandy Catoe.

    Mandy said early on she felt it was her year. An avid Kansas City Chiefs fan, Mandy said she felt KC and she were on their way to the top.

    The Chiefs, at 6-5, have a ways to go, but Mandy is at the top with a 217-82 record for the season.
