I can't believe I haven't come across a college football thread for this upcoming season. What's wrong with you people? Pro baseball (or watching paint dry) is for the birds; it's time for the real American sport to begin.

I started the 2009 college football thread and picked Florida to win the title. I picked my Crimson Tide #5, but I was basically attemtping not to jinx Bama when I made my pick because I felt like they were going to win the SEC and play for the BCS championship. This season, I feel like is up for grabs more than any season in recent memory.

I'll go with Oklahoma to be the last man standing. I think the Sooners are the class of the Big XII (or what's soon to be left of the Big XII). Texas and Nebraska will be in good shape to mount a serious challenge though. Ohio State is a trendy pick to make the title game, but I really think that someone in the Big Ten will knock OSU off (maybe Iowa or Wisconsin). I give the nod to Florida in the SEC. I think Alabama's schedule is too tough (but, then again, it's always tough) and Bama has to replace some big names on defense - particularly in the secondary and at placekicker. The annual "What about Boise State" disclaimer: If the Broncos can get by Virginia Tech in week one, then they will likely go undefeated barring any key injuries (however, Nevada and Oregon State might present a couple of tough challenges). But, in order for Boise to make it to Glendale for the title game, they will still need help along the way in the form of other highly ranked BCS-conference teams losing games late in the season.

September 2nd is just around the corner!!!

    I can't wait to go to some of the UConn games! Went to the Halloween one last year; the first home game after Jasper Howard died.

    The Huskies have been very impressive since they made the move to I-A.

    I'm a huge college football fan. I have missed one or two Tennessee home games the last 15 years or so. Looks like another rocky season in Knoxville but I love it win or lose.

    I think we travel up to uconn for a game in the next 3-4 years

    Definitely. Edsall has done a great job with them. They've won a few bowl games. I'm looking to split season tickets with some friends this year.

    #2 I hear? For a team that gets consistantly accused of being overrated, we sure do seem to wind up in the upper top ten quite often.

    Watch out for the Huskies. We're going to be a strong team this year. Don't count them out.

    I agree, Go Blue!

    Waiting on whether I'm getting tickets to the Conn game. WIll be up their for Wisconsin, Mass. and hopefully Iowa.

    It won't happen but hopefully the press and the freaking A-Hole boosters will leave Rich Rod alone for a year. Seriously just let things go...

    Just let me known to be
    In search of the truth myself
    There is a drop of blood on the ground
    And it seems to me that it's not my kind
    And I can't be sure if its yours or mine."

    losing 16 of your first 24 games and having two NCAA investagations going on about your current and former program is a sure fire way to get yourself noticed. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    what a creep he is.

    As a University of South Carolina Gamecock fan, I'm already looking forward to the 2011 season :lol:


    But seriously, with as much talk as I hear about giving Spurrier enough time to build something and whatnot, this is the year for us to make a move and be first or second in the SEC East. He's had enough time to get things in place, it's time to see some better results.....otherwise, we would have been better off keeping Lou Holtz around until it was time for Skip to take over.
