NASCAR announced the 2015 schedule earlier this week and considering that the sport is entering a new television contract with Fox and NBC, there are some noticeable changes for the top three series next year. Let's take a look.

2014 NFL Predictions

After a dominant performance in Super Bowl XLVIII in claiming their first championship in franchise history, the Seattle Seahawks enter the 2014 NFL season aiming to defend their crown. No team has successfully repeated as Super Bowl champions since the Patriots in 2005 but can a loaded Seattle club survive a tough NFC West and a strong NFC to get to Glendale in February? Can the Broncos rebound from their brutal performance to win it all? Will we see somebody altogether?

Here are my predictions for the 2014 NFL season.

2014 College Football Predictions: Week 1

The wait is over my friends: college football is back. With the explosive Abilene Christian-Georgia State matchup on Wednesday night, the 2014 FBS season will be underway and the run to the College Football Playoff will be on (check out my predictions here). There are some high-profile non-conference showdowns in the opening week, who will open their campaign the right way? Here are my picks for week one.

Who will win the Heisman Trophy in 2014?

For the second straight year, a redshirt freshman won the Heisman Trophy and thus once again, said player will aim to join Archie Griffin as the only two-time Heisman winners. Jameis Winston surely had an interesting offseason but as he leads a team attempting to repeat as national champions, can he repeat as Heisman winner? Or will somebody new claim the award? Here are my predictions.

Watch Mike Francesa do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been huge, okay. Everybody who's anybody has done it, including yours truly. But there is only one who we wanted to see do the challenge: the one and only Sports Pope, Mike Francesa. At the annual Bar A show in Lake Como, New Jersey, Francesa had the ice water dropped on him after what seemingly was the fourth or fifth person drawn from a contest towards the tail end of his WFAN program. It was real, and it was spectacular. Let's go to the videotape.

MIke goes solo on Fanatic Radio as we talk Team USA and their road to the FIBA World Cup on who Coach K should keep after tonight's game in the Garden. There is a hilarious bit of Francesa and Calipari but does the Sports Pope have a point? The hype-or-not of the Little League World Series and what a motivational speech and a girl named Mo'ne have in common, and the drama of the Cleveland Browns on what they should do with the case of Johnny Football after shooting the bird to the Washington bench.
