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.

2014-15 College Football Predictions

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.
