We're back for the 2021 NFL Season. You can follow our weekly predictions crew. Jesse Lucas won the first year in 2014-2015. Jason Bantle and myself now have two championships after I won the NFL Pickem Champion Trophy for most accurate predictions against the spread in 2020-2021. Oren Shiri and Tanya Holmes have one pickem title too. The most exciting news is that four new panelists Joseph Potter my longtime co-host of our podcast, Andrew Kermish, Lisa Donovan, and Tracy Porter will all have their picks posted on the site this year giving Draft Utopia nine panelists for our pickem pool so one of our new panelists could dethrone someone who won in the past.

I'm also posting full College Games On Bitchute, but I'll probably focus more on Youtube since Bitchute wouldn't let me upload playoff games from the College Football Playoff to our Bitchute channel.

Speaking of Bill Clinton. Every week leading up to the College Football Playoff we will have Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff where Bill Clinton ranks the top 4 teams in College Football. This is the third year Bill Clinton has posted his College Football Playoff.


Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff Selection Special



  1. Clemson Tigers

    Clemson defeated Alabama once again in the Championship game thanks to the man with a mullet Trevor Lawrence. Hillary is crazy about is hair Yahoo man. Dabo Sweeney has surpassed Nick Saban as the biggest pimp in College Football





  2. Alabama Crimson Tide

    Alabama wants revenge on Clemson. Nick Saban is the second biggest pimp in College Football.





  3. Oklahoma

    Lincoln Riley has coached two Heisman winning quarterbacks. He may have a third consecutive quarterback in Jalen Hurts a former prostitute of Nick Saban. Coach Riley is keeping his pimp hand strong at the quarterback position.





  4. Florida

    Florida enters my top 4 for the Preseason. They have Kyle Trask back at quarterback and the Gators may have their best squad since those Legendary Spurrier Teams in the 90's when I was president.

@CockyBelichick is my favorite Twitter user of all time. His twitter feed is that epic. He always inserts the #kisstherings hashtag and it is badass. I'm going to post his 5 best tweets on our site every week like David Letterman does with his top 10 jokes until the owner of this twitter feed requests I take them down because his tweets are that epic. Recently, @CockyBelichick, changed his username to @BelichickMethod. Let's start with the top 5 Tweets from the 2020 Offseason.



This feels like a reach. You'll have to scroll down all the way to the end of this page to find out how Drew Lock does against the clown. There's also a post on the Titans Instagram handle that says Happy Happy Joy Joy! Ren and Stimpy needs to sue the Tennessee Titans for copyright infringement.




Off the record. I hope all of these things happen.




I got some Super Bowl hats I could give away, but you already earned those. Maybe the NFL will award you to a spa with Rob Kraft. After all, the judges ruled that Kraft was exempt of all charges.




This is actually a legit question. I don't see Edelman in this tweet and I'm kind of pissed about that to be honest.




Apparently, I deserve to be smacked for comparing Harry to a young Randy Moss. Harry needs a big year 2 because Moss had an instant impact with Minnesota. New England needs Harry to play like Moss without Brady if they want to run this division again.

I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, Andrew Filiponi, and newcommer Rich Walsh. Tonight the gang is in Las Vegas.


Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden and Andrew Filiponi covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA from New York. We also have a new anchor joining us up in the booth in Rich Walsh. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

Madden: Welcome to New York. Rich Walsh is KDKA's version of Andy Dalton. Big Ben Roethlisberger should destroy the Giants. This game will get so ugly that Odell Beckham Jr. will be feeding Golden Tate shit at halftime.

Filiponi: I'm not sure what was worse, you disrespecting Rich Walsh or making a bad poop joke.

Walsh: One fan thought I was New York Giants offensive coordinator and former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. Speaking of Cowboys they were the team that picked up Dalton.

Pompieni: That's a good point Rich Walsh. If the Giants have any hopes of winning with young offensive talent like quarterback Daniel Jones, running back Saquon Barkley, and tight end Evan Engram, then Jason Garrett will need to step up at offensive coordinator.

Madden: I brought Little Giants the movie on VHS up to the booth. I expect Pittsburgh to clobber this team now that DeAndre Baker got cut.

Pompieni: Tonights game is brought to you by Dancing With the Stars. Dancing With The Stars won't air until 1:06 AM thanks to us calling this game on WTAE which is one of our rival stations.

Madden: No tonights game is brought to you by the CDC. They made sure no fans would be allowed in this game.

Filiponi: No local and state governments make rules on the fans in the stadium.

Walsh: Everyone is taking the Steelers Bob, so let's get to tonights sponsors.

Pompieni: We'll be back with kickoff after these messages from Dancing With The Stars and the CDC.
