The Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook is an annual publication which includes preseason previews of every NCAA Division I men's college basketball team in the United States. Created in 1981 by future Boston Celtics general manager Chris Wallace,[1] it is currently compiled by a team of college basketball writers led by Chris Dortch. The 384-page publication has been described as the "Bible" of college basketball,[2] and its preseason rankings and awards predictions are widely reported in the press.[3][4][5][6]

Since 2000, Blue Ribbon Publications has also produced an annual college football yearbook.
