Happy Tuesday, friends and fans!

It’s a well-known fact that the giant panda is the smartest animal on planet Earth. The secret is in their diet. You see, the nutrients in bamboo fibers give the big, cuddly floof monsters the ability to correctly prognosticate the outcome of College Football Playoff games, and unlike Jim Mora, they don’t even need to watch hundreds of games a week. Don’t believe me? See for yourself. Yang Yang, the stage is all yours, my two-toned friend.

First of all, for those of you who are less cultured than my boy Yang Yang, the song you hear playing in the video is called ‘Panda’ by rapper Desiigner. I just wanted that to be mentioned because it’s a terribly smart move.

In the song, there’s a line: “I got broads in Atlanta.” Well, Mr. Desiigner, we’ve also got a game to play in Atlanta on Dec. 28, and this prescient panda is picking the Oklahoma Sooners to defeat the No. 1 LSU Tigers. And yes, this pick is straight up, not just the points. Whether or not he’s taking the suspension rumors into account is a mystery, as he’s unfortunately unable to talk.

Now on to today’s Hot Links! Lon Kruger’s men take on Creighton, Lincoln Riley’s passion for recruiting hasn’t waned with transfers, Drew Brees is not a bust and more!
