    Default College Football 2012-13

    ESPN's Colin Cowherd came out with his Pre Pre-Season College Football Top Ten.

    Colin has USC #2 behind Choklahoma.

    I think that USC will be the team to watch this year.

    I agree that USC will be really good.

    You don't really have to ask anyone.... Just look at how well USC was playing last season. For pure college football watching in 2012, it doesn't get any better in Div. I, big rivalry games aside.

    Offensively USC will be unstoppable. It's more about the defense.

    I love it when OU is rated number one by someone. These goobers around here lose their minds. Then the epic loss- that shouldn't have happened- happens.

    I just grin and smile.

    A lot.

    It should be an interesting year for LSU-@Florida, @Arky, @Auburn, home to Bama and Carolina. LSU should have a more dependable qb this year as opposed to last year. History suggests when LSU has a better than average/really good qb they don't as well. The O-line worries me for some reason. Again, we shall see what the season holds.

    don't sleep on West Virginia!

    that offense is badass, and i think 9 starters are returning... moving to Big12.... a bit under the radar.

    i'd say they are a Sleeper Contender. obviously just gotta go out and win every week and they'll be in the mix.

    Thw USA Today Coaches Pre-Season Poll is out.

    http://www.usatoday.com/sports/colle...oll/56699668/1

    But..... ***Balloting had concluded before Penn State running back Silas Redd announced he would transfer to Southern California.***

    The American Football Coaches Association bars teams under major NCAA or conference probation from receiving votes. However, because Central Florida said it is appealing a football bowl ban handed down Tuesday by the NCAA, it will remain eligible until the NCAA rules on the appeal. Ohio State, North Carolina and Penn State are ineligible for votes this season because of NCAA sanctions.

    Penn State adds players names, and a ribbon to football jerseys

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Players' names are being added to Penn State's football jerseys for the coming season, the university announced Tuesday, along with blue ribbons to show support for victims of child abuse.

    The team's generic look - blue-and-white, no names on jerseys - has long been a trademark and was associated with the buttoned-down style of former coach Joe Paterno, who was fired last year after his former assistant Jerry Sandusky was arrested on child molestation charges.

    School officials said adding the names was a way to recognize the "resolve and dedication" of the players, as the team faces a four-year bowl ban and loss of scholarships under the severe penalties handed down by the NCAA last month over the school's handling of the Sandusky scandal.

    The changes will take effect with the Sept. 1 season opener at home against Ohio University.

    "We want our fans to know and recognize these young men," said coach Bill O'Brien, who was hired after last season. "They have stuck together during tough times, and I commend them for the leadership they have shown."

    Fran Fisher, a longtime Penn State radio announcer, said the jersey changes may ruffle some feathers among former players, and the vanilla uniforms will continue to be associated with Paterno.

    "I think Coach O'Brien has a right to do whatever he wants to do to have an identity for his team," Fisher said. "I think that the plainness of the Paterno era will be remembered because he considered it to be a team sport."
