College Football Picks Week 14

December 3, 2020

Ladies and Gentlemen –

I hope you all survived Thanksgiving and your Aunt Edna’s Ten Bean Casserole Surprise.

Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t eat anything that has the word “Surprise” associated with the title.

Past experience has taught me, that is a good way to spend the day with the fan running in the bathroom. I guess that safety tip would have come in handy for you readers “before” Thanksgiving.

Sorry about that

Enjoy Your Picks…

Weekend Rewind…

Although the Apple Cup and other key games were either postponed or cancelled, yet again. Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator finished Thanksgiving weekend at 49 and 2 or 96%, while also picking The Cyclones of Iowa State over Texas and The Mighty Beavers of Oregon State over Oregon.

Sure, I also picked Penn State over Michigan, but is that really an upset?

I think not.

That leaves The CFB Wizard at 380 and 80 or 83% overall for the 2020 Kung Fu Flu Season.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS

THE IRON BOWL: I will leave this one right here for the Auburn players that called Mac Jones

“A Game Manager”

TEXAS: What in the Hell is going on with Coach Tom Herman?

Is this the Longhorn equivalent of “The Bachelor”?

VANDERBILT: We’re truly in a new world of diversity and inclusiveness…

Until we’re not

So, this screenshot is from the Vanderbilt media guide

All the players’ position, class, hometown info is listed…

Even height and weight stats!!!

Well… Almost all of the players on the roster

Why wasn’t kicker extraordinaire Sarah Fuller’s weight listed?

After all

We’re all in on equality, right?

After seeing her endlessly on TV on Saturday, they could have at least just said that she’s “big boned.”

MICHIGAN: How’s everything going with the 4th Highest Paid Coach in College Football?

Good?

MISSOURI: You can act all sophisticated in post-game interviews, but we know better.

Here is a little something I like to call, “Christmas in Missouri”

SMU: You couldn’t beat East (Damn) Carolina last week, really?

I can’t even look at you right now

COLLEGE FOOTBALL FANS: We are fortunate this week to have Country Music Superstar!

Sylacauga Ledbetter!!!!!

He is here to perform an original song for the college football fans here at The CFB Wizard.

It’s something I think we can all relate too

Enjoy!

THE CFB WIZARD EMAILS OF THE WEEK

Q: Dear Sir,

As Chancellor of Vanderbilt University, I regret to inform you that we are parting ways with Derek Mason as our head football coach. We reluctantly do this with a heavy heart but feel that this is in the best interest of our student-athletes.

As you know, our football program has fallen on hard times. I mean, when you look and play worse than the University of Tennessee, then you know it’s time for a change. With that being said, we are excited to announce that we have ALREADY made a decision on a new coach!

We are proud to proclaim that in the spirit of diversity and inclusiveness that we are hiring Sarah Fuller to steer the ship for the Commodore Football Team!

I’m sure you saw the breathless coverage of Sarah anxiously pacing the sidelines while waiting for her opportunity to participate in this important event.

She was meticulously accurate with her squib kick for Vanderbilt, and ensured that there would be no run-back for a touchdown to further embarrass our team on this lackluster day.

Some may ask about her qualifications, well, for one, she is a member of a CHAMPIONSHIP soccer team. She simply knows how to win. AND she gave an inspirational halftime speech in which it was noted that not ONE other member of the football team rolled their eyes at.

So join me in welcoming our new football head coach – Sarah Fuller

Daniel Diermeier
Chancellor
Vanderbilt University

A: You’re drunk, go home

Q: Hey there Wizzy Boy,
I..
AM…
DABO!!!!

Yeah, that’s right. I’m dang DABO SWINNEY and I don’t take no stuff from nobody and I ALWAYS get the last word!!! I am the GREATEST football coach of all time. Uh-huh.

Yep, I said it. And if I said it it’s true. I mean who’s the last one to win a National Championship? Me or Little Nicky Saban?

This little back and forth between me and that punk Florida State coach ain’t goin nowhere cause ain’t nobody gettin the last word on me.

Yeah, my mama told me when I was a kid that folks may come at you and beat your ass and say stuff but as long as you get the last word, THAT is the most important thing. It’s the ONLY thing!!! So that Norvell fella needs to just SHUT THE HELL up cause I cut my teeth on Spurrier and upped my game with Saban and he ain’t even coached a whole season.

Dabo Dam Swinney
Head Coach
THE Clemson Tigers

A:Give it a damn rest coach, seriously

Q: Howdy they call me Tennessee Gravy.

I call my wife “Biscuit” because she’s round, soft and flaky.

We got us a daughter we call “Muffin” cause she’s got a face that’s rounder than a Moon Pie.

So, I done and went and figured out a way that the Volunteers can make them college football playoffs.

I used me some math to figure it ALL out!

You want to hear about it?

Tennessee Gravy – Crab Orchard, Tennessee

A: I would rather you not take your shoes off to have to count it out, so let’s pass on this one.
