College Football Week 13 Thanksgiving Picks

November 25, 2020
By

Ladies and Gentlemen –

We have quite the cornucopia of rivalries on the Thanksgiving menu this weekend.
The table will be decorated this year with a tasteful Hero’s Trophy, along with a Battle Line Trophy to compliment the table.

There is an Apple Cup covered in a delicate dose of Modern-Day Hate served over a Victory Cannon.

Paul Bunyan’s Axe will be used to carve the Slab of Bacon over a delicious Egg Bowl.

For dessert there will be a bitter Civil War to tantalize the palate.

Those with a stronger disposition, there will be a portion of pure hate and discontent served up in;

The Iron Bowl

Enjoy Your Picks…

Weekend Rewind…

Last week Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator won a few and lost a few, but still finished Week 12 at 41 and 9 or 82%. Not too bad, all things considered.

That leaves The CFB Wizard at 331 and 78 or 81% for the 2020 Kung Fu Flu Season.
Considering that nothing (And I do mean “Nothing”) makes any damn sense this year, that’s not too bad.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS

THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS: Here is your explanation in three minutes, enjoy.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL COMMENTATORS: I don’t know “when” this trend in sports “commentary” started…

But when did the three idiots they have calling a football game start to chit-chat back and forth during a damn live football game like three drunk dudes setting behind you in a movie theater?

Two weeks ago during the Iowa Hawkeye game, Fox Sports had three Polish Morons which I assume is a oxymoron, but that aside all they did was talk back forth between each other during the whole damn game with little or no discussion of the game, not that a discussion is necessary “IF” you are watching the damn game.

But last week, during the Alabama-Kentucky game Jordan Rodgers wouldn’t shut his damn mouth during the whole game, talking about texting his fiancée during the game while she was at the drive-thru etc.

The other two gibbering idiots weren’t any better, talking about their shoes and clothes etc.

I don’t know when or where this trend started, but it’s annoying as hell.

So, STOP IT.

PEYTON MANNING: Speaking of annoying the hell out of people….

Is it “possible” that I could go through an entire Saturday without seeing his dumbass on a commercial?

Seriously?

EDITORS NOTE: “IF” I wanted to see someone that always looks like they just smelled a fart, I would have a mirror next to my toilet.

But now I see that ESPN has given this buffoon a damn television program, interviewing actors, celebrities etc. about their views on football. Riveting television programing to be sure.

In the commercial for this waste of an hour out of your life program he is even interviewing,

(Wait for it)

Bill Clinton

I wonder if there will be any discussion of Epstein’s Island.

Asking for a friend

KENTUCKY: Although the Wildcats lost last week to Alabama
It’s important to note that they could have opted out of the game over the Kung Fu Flu.

I have mad love and respect for the Big Blue Nation for showing up to fight.

The LSU Tigers could learn a thing or two from you and so could Florida State.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL REFEREES: What the hell is going on with referees this season?

I am not just talking about the Southeastern Conference goobers either.
Last week the Big Ten referees cost Purdue a win against Minnesota by calling this play back over, “Offensive Interference.”

Here you go….

ARKANSAS: Speaking of getting screwed over by referees.

The Razorbacks were once again screwed last Saturday in the LSU game by the very same referee crew that cost them the game against Auburn.

I don’t know what needs to be done about this crew of blind umpires, but they shouldn’t be allowed to work a Pop Warner game.

THE CFB WIZARD EMAILS OF THE WEEK

Q: Hello

My name is Schwinn (Like zee bicycles)

I am German, I come from the Germany and move to America on student visa.

American the football and zee soccer we call are different very much.

You say zee soccer, but we say it is zee football but not as your zee football.

Sometimes confuse Schwinn.

The difference in name of game.

Thank you
Schwinn – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

A: Honestly, I couldn’t tell if that was a question…

Or you were trying to get my help to invade Poland.

Q: Dear Mr. CFB Wizard –

I think you are the biggest Joke on planet earth.

Paul – Joliet, Illinois

A: Have you ever been to Wal-Mart at Midnight?

That might change your mind about me being the “Biggest Joke” on Earth.

Q: Hey there Mister Wizard!!!

Do you have any special plans for the Holidays?

Love the websites and the picks!!

Thanks!!
Trudi – Fort Worth, Texas

A: Hopefully; I will be doing my part to improve American – Ukrainian relations with this vibrant artist, and without the need of a powerful father or a seat on the board of a oil and gas company.

No need to thank me, it’s what I do America.
