Ok so the rankings came out, but who thinks there are some teams that are going to surprise people.. Care to name them.



I think in the SEC: Ole Miss and Tenn(mainly TENN) will be better than people think. I would love to see Florida lose to somebody



ACC: Georgia Tech..



Big 12: Love Oklahoma, qb, and that rb who was injured last year can't think of his name, but he was money when he played..



Big 10: Illinois...lots of talent.



PAC 10: Hate USC this year, no qb, lost a lot of defense(linebackers)

Watch for Oklahoma State in the Big XII also, should surprise a lot of people this year.  USC will definitely be down this year, but look at the rest of the conference, who is their competition?

 
SEC and Big XII will again be the two dominant conferences and will rematch in the National Championship.

I'm such a homer...Virginia Tech will be in the title game!!!!  Tyrod Taylor will emerge as a top 3 Heisman candidate!

Ole Miss is preseason number 8, they will probably end up no better than that. They do have an easy schedule though. UT no better than 8 wins but that is a big improvement. Georgia could easily disappoint.... USC has an easy way being in the PAC. The Big 12 huh?
Oklahoma and Texas duel it out again.....

I think oklahoma, more so than texas... Texas lost a lot more people(D-Line) and they still have no running back to help take some pressure off Colt..

Michigan will rebound and have a good year vs. a weak schedule.

If Vtech wins their first game watch from them to run the ACC.

Aug 25, 2009 10:18 pm

G Tech is way too strong for VT

Aug 25, 2009 10:37 pm

G tech is suspect in their secondary - Plus Georgia is going to roll them. Not that I care but since I'm in ACC country it's all I hear. 

GO BLUE

I only know one thing. ND will make a good bowl based on their name and soft schedule. They will then be hammered by 4 TD's.

You are out of your mind if you don't think USC will be a great team this year. They always seem to be 10 players deep in every position.

 
They will win the PAC 10 handily, and play in a major bowl game.

Depends how fast and it what condition that ugly qb comes back in.. They have 2 weeks until they play miami.. missed the actual game, but judging from the box score, when your rbs average 5.0 yds/carry why even throw..

Georgia got smacked by a team that isn't known for the their defense..didn't joe cox play for a little while a different year before they pulled him in an attempt to salvage the season.



GT runs that weird offense that Navy does(ohio st looked confused for a while and they had some time to prepare) but with better athletes.

Only because no one plays in the PAC 10. Oregon, done, lost their rb and the team looked terrible, Ore St, once in a while they show up, Stanford, good coach not enough talent or consistency, ariz, seriously, washington, recovering from ty(although I bet Notre dame would take him back compared to charlie)

Why does Illinois continue to schedule their first game against Missouri.. they are always playing catch-up the rest of the season and always lose a decent player to injury..



TENN is awesome... 250+ yards on ground another 200+ by air... This team lacked talent and fundamentals for the last 3 years.. Now they have some new talent(Bryce Brown), and great coaches.. Of course the test comes against a real opponent(but this game would have been 28-23 had fulmer been coaching)

You've lost your mind about Tenn.  - awesome? Who did they play? We'll see how they play against a school that's been in D1 for more than a year.

You will see on Saturday...... Of course, that's only against a PAC 10 team......
Sep 9, 2009 12:41 pm

I know, I am full of hypocritical statements. Will crown TENN early champs of SEC based on if they beat UCLA, but hate USC because they only play weak competition and the pac-10(is there a difference)

Sep 9, 2009 10:23 pm

The Pac-10 is always "weak" to all of the Midwesterners, Southerners, and Easterners.  Then, bowl season starts and the Pac-10 shines--year, after year, after year, after frickin' year.  The MWC and WAC are better than you think, too.  Football crossed the Mississippi river a long time ago, boys.  Most of the creativity and evolution of offensive football has come from this part of the country.  (Thus, "West Coast Offense".)  Out West, the best athletes play offense.  In other areas, the best athletes tend to be on the defensive side of the ball.  There is probably more parity in D-I football in the present that in any period during my lifetime.  That's why it's just so damn fun to watch!
