SEC game picks and predictions
Look, I know what you're thinking - "Georgia, again?" I've heard the cries for fresh blood in the SEC, but let's be real folks, the Dawgs are just too darn good. Sure, they've lost a few key players to the NFL, but Coach Kirby Smart always finds a way to replenish his roster.
But let's not forget the Alabama Crimson Tide. Under the tutelage of the evergreen Nick Saban, they've been a formidable force for years. Still, I see the Tide losing a heartbreaker to the Dawgs in the SEC Championship game. No need to send me hate mail, Bama fans - I'm just calling it as I see it.

College Football Playoff picks and predictions
Alright, folks, here's where the rubber meets the road. My playoff picks have raised eyebrows in the past, but I'm not in the business of playing it safe. So let's get into it.
First up, the semifinals - Michigan versus Georgia in the Orange Bowl, and Florida State versus USC in the Cotton Bowl. I've got Michigan and USC pulling off victories to set up a thrilling national championship game.
Michigan versus USC - a match-up that's got me salivating just thinking about it. Two storied programs, each with a chip on their shoulder. But who'll come out on top? Well, folks, I'm riding the Trojan horse into the sunset. That's right, I'm predicting USC will clinch the national championship, with Caleb Williams leading them to glory.
