Go grab your government cheese…
The great comic Chris Farley really loved his Wisconsin Badgers, and today the university released an old video of him in his Matt Foley character telling where potential recruits will end up if they don’t commit to the Badgers.

Welcome to DouBle B’s CFB Picks 2014 Championship Week Edition. We’ve got four conference championship that all have a huge impact on the College Football Playoff chase, a couple Big 12 matchups, inlcuding Kansas State vs Baylor, which also could throw some complications into the mix. There’s also the Mountain West Championship (which impacts jack squat).
This might remind you why tonight’s Pac-12 Championship between Oregon and Arizona means a lot to both schools (but let’s face it, especially Oregon)
By the way, this is gonna be fast, I’ve got a busy shift coming up tonight and need to get ready. Last week I went 18-6, you can read those picks here and here, now, on to the Championship Week picks.

Get Ready for Cupcake Saturday!…
Welcome to DouBle B’s CFB Picks 2014 Week 13: Weekend Edition. West Virginia couldn’t quite pull off the upset on Thursday, so I am currently 0-1 for the week (see that pick, plus the Week 12 recap HERE).
But there is hope for a great week, many thanks to the SEC, because its that late week of the season that they all seem to line up cupcakes so any who are in the National Title hunt won’t get a loss on their hands. I mean look at the victims this time: Western Carolina (vs #1 Bama), Charleston Southern (vs #10 Georgia), Samford (vs #14 Auburn), South Alabama (vs 5-5 South Carolina), and Eastern Kentucky (vs Florida).
Best game of the week is coming out of the Pac-12, with #19 USC vs #9 UCLA.
Anyhoo, lets get to it!

The 2014-15 college basketball season is nearly upon us. This morning the Preseason AP Top 25 was released, and to the surprise of nobody who follows the game, the Kentucky Wildcats took the top spot with 52 out of a possible 65 first-place votes. For those of you who don’t follow college hoops, here’s a quick explanation of why its not a surprise: last season Kentucky’s freshman class was basically the most hyped in history (although its hard to think they were actually better than the one with Anthony Davis). In college basketball you can win with freshman, no doubt, and this is not unusual in the UK program, in fact its more the norm since John Calipari took over in 2009.
But the thing is, in the past those hyped freshman under Calipari (some examples: John Wall, Derek Rose, Tyreke Evans, Demarcus Cousins, heard of them?) all left after one year to go to the NBA, because they were flat out good enough. Buuuuut for some reason, despite the fact that last season they made it to the National Title game (where they lost to UConn, which sucked), and several of them were “flat out good enough”, most of them decided to return. Soooooo look out.
But they’re not the only great Wildcats team out there, because theres also the Arizona Wildcats, ranked #2 with five first-place votes. They were a last second shot away from a Final Four trip last season They return great big men with Brandon Ashley (who if wasn’t hurt I thought they would have won it all) and Kaleb Tarczewski, experience, very good guard play, and a fantastic recruiting class.
Wisonsin, the team that knocked off Arizona in the Elite 8, starts at #3. They have most of their squad back, including 6-10 Frank Kaminsky, who said no to the pros for another shot at a title (which I don’t think will happen but hey).
