2014-15 College Football Predictions

(Getty)
We are entering a new age in the world of college football and it finally involves a playoff. The Bowl Championship Series went out with a bang back in January with a thrilling championship game that found Florida State rallying from an early deficit to defeat Auburn and become the first non-SEC national champion since Texas in the same stadium eight years prior. But those days are over as the long-awaited College Football Playoff (creative, right?) debuts this January. Can Florida State become repeat? Will the SEC get back to the top, or will they possibly miss out on the playoff altogether?

It's time for my predictions for the 2014-15 college football season.

2014 College Football on CBS Sports Network Announcers

When people talk about college football on TV, they immediately think about ESPN, and rightfully so. Fox probably comes next in the minds of most. However, one should not ignore CBS Sports Network as they feature action from the Mountain West, the American, Army and Navy. Here are their commentary crews for 2014.

2014-15 NBA on TNT Schedule

All in all, TNT will air 53 games with 19 doubleheaders on their signature Thursday night coverage as well as All-Star Weekend from New York in February.

ESPN's suspension of Dan Le Batard is lame

(Jeremy Powell)
All Dan Le Batard was looking to do was to do some harmless trolling. First, he wanted to pay for a full-page ad that would look like this in either the Cleveland Plain-Dealer or the Akron Beacon-Journal in the wake of LeBron James returning to Ohio. Although the prospective advertisement wasn't in the slightest offensive, and far from what is considered to be any standard for advertisement rejection, both papers rejected any and all of Le Batard's money. So Le Batard went a different route and purchased a billboard (pictured above) in Akron which was ironically covered on the front page of the (wait for it) Akron Beacon-Journal.

So no harm no foul? Not according to the folks at ESPN, who have promptly suspended Le Batard for two days because, well, I am not entirely sure.
