    Default College Football 2011-12

    The Sporting News has published their Top 25 prediction for this year's NCAA Football Teams:

    http://aol.sportingnews.com/ncaa-football/fan-poll/view

    The Top 10 are:

    LSU

    OU

    ALABAMA

    STANFORD

    OREGON

    BOISE STATE

    FLORIDA STATE

    OK STATE

    NEBRASKA

    WISCONSIN

    My gut feeling is that it will be Alabama.

    Funny to see the discrepancy between the fans, experts, and coaches.


    The fans have Miami at #17 but nobody else even ranks them. The fans have Nebraska at #6 but an expert has them at #17. One expert has Ohio State at #8 but the other expert doesn't even rank them. Gotta love pre-season polls.

    Kinda like how the USA Today poll have Auburn at 19, ESPNU fan rankings at 13, the USA Today Coaches Poll at 19 but yet the ESPN Power ranking has them unranked. I guess there are a lot of people in for a shocker. 6-6 is my guess.

    14-0 is my guess for Bama
    too much motivation with that team.

    and I hope it's vs. Oklahoma

    then I guess we'll be playing A&M and perhaps FSU the year after (in the regular season).

    So is Texas A&M going to move to the SEC or not?

    Hear dthe SEC told A&M to save it. Not invited.. Whatever, the Big 12 (or 10 or however may teams are in that conference now) seems like it's done soon anyway with teams jumping ship, or at least trying to.

    Would have been interesting to see A&M in the world of Alabama and Georgia et al.. Probably would have gotten smoked initially, but with the SEC tag on 'em, the recruiting class would get stronger ( maybe lure some of the Horns' target).

    Anyway, would have been interesting. Still think it's gonna happen at some point..

    A&M's going. The SEC isn't allowed to "pursue" TAM since they are still under contract with the Big12/11/10/9, but AM can pursue another conference (weird how that's structured). But I think, don't remember exactly, that that contract expires at the end of this week. So of course the SEC is going to say no for now... next week's a different story

    Pre season polls are garbage. It never fails some team is ranked very high and does a nose dive and has terrible year (Tenessee a few years ago and so on). LSU #1? Even for a fan I find that hard to believe with a helter skelter qb and an OC in doubt. On top of that add a tough tough schedule. It should be an interesting year no doubt. And I won't be able to make it to the LSU/Oregon game-damn work!!!! Long story short, we're basially shorthanded.

    On a semi-related note: the U is certainly in a world of trouble. Did they not learn anything from Luther Campbell and 2 Live Crew? Where was/is the over sight board or compliance board or whoever they're called? I did hear an interesting comment on TV today. The commentator was saying how a school from the Acc is in trouble, a school from the Big 10 is in trouble, a school from the Pac 10 is in trouble, a school from the Moutain West is in trouble. Yet not one mention of any wrong doings at a SEC school? Rrrrrrriiiiigggghhhhtttttt. I'm not naive enough to think LSU runs a squeaky clean program-no school can say that.

    I'm sure the Canes (my team) are dirty as all hell. No one should be shocked. Almost every successful college program has these types of skeletons. If Miami was getting outrecruited despite offering cash, sex parties with hookers, yachts, etc. What in the hell were the teams getting the top recruits offering?

    My simple rule on determining who the clean vs dirty programs is pretty simple. Look at the top 25 - most of them are dirty. Look at the teams that win 2 or 3 games a year - most of them are running clean.
