2009 College Football Preview

These rankings are based on my thoughts on where teams will finish the regular season…

1) FU Gaytors – I don’t know how this team is gonna lose. Returning the entire 2-deep on defense and not really losing anyone but Percy Harvin on offense. But they have a frosh coming in (Debose) who is could have the skills that Harvin brought. They are by far the best team in the country, and the shouldn’t lose a game. But they always have 1 hiccup during the season that keeps them from being a dynasty. Word is that Tebow & the coaching staff is doing everything to keep the entire team focused every day. But who knows? Every team says that. I want to pick them to go undefeated but they’ll probably drop a game they shouldn’t. Only real tough game for them is at LSU on 10/10. 12-1 regular season record and a spot in Pasadena for a shot at 3 titles in 4 years.

2) Texas – This is McCoy’s year. I think he’ll win the HEEsman*. This team has a bad taste in their mouth after getting snubbed for the BCS game last season so they’re coming into this season with a big chip on their shoulders. Their running game isn’t grate*, but McCoy led them in rushing last year and it didn’t slow them down much. Big games on the schedule along with the Red River shootout are at Mizzou, at Oklahoma State, and at A&M. They’ll probably lose one of those games. 12-1 record and a shot at FU in the BCS title game.

3) Virginia Tech – Beamer has his boys prepped for a big run this year. They start the season with a big game against Alabamer* in Atlanta. If they can win that game (AKIIK), they’ll put themselves in the national title hunt. As usual, Beamer has an A+ defense and special teams. The offense needs some help. They have a solid running game, and QB Tyrod Taylor is elusive, but he needs to stop making silly mistakes. He’s entering his 3rd year as a starter, so I think he’ll do enough to lead them to another ACC title. Other than the Alabama game, the schedule isn’t too tough. Road game at GT in October might present a challenge. 11-2, an ACC Championship, and a spot in the Orange Bowl.

4) Boise State – I like the blue turf demons. They are getting the benefit of having a top 20 ranking to start the season, which will allow them to be able to slowly creep up in this territory by the end of the season. They start the season at on the blue turf against the Ducks. Get past that game and its smooth sailing for the Broncos. They are going to put up a lot of points this season and the defense just has to bend but not break. I think they’ll go 13-0 and play in the Orange Bowl.

5) OU Sooners – Here’s another team that will score points by the truckload. Sam Bradtard* is back to defend his Heisman, but he’s gonna get beat up by the Longhorns in Dallas. Kudos to OU for scheduling a non-conference game against BYU, though. It’s good to see BCS teams playing some top non-BCS teams out of conference. They also play at Miami, although they should handle them pretty easy. Big games against UT, at Kansas, at Nebraska, at TT, and at home against OSU. 10-2 and a spot in the Fiesta Bowl.

6) Penn State – I know some people here aren’t fond of PSU but JoPa has some talent in Happy Valley. I do wish that old fuck would go away, though. Darryl Clark is the real deal, and they have a load of RBs behind him. I’m happy to see a lot of Big Te(leve)n coming into the 21st century and going with the spread offense, aka the Beth offense. Linebacker U is still living up to its name. Their non-conference schedule is a joke. Akron, Syracuse, Temple, and Eastern Illinois. Big conference games at Illinois, at home against OSU, and at UM & MSU. 11-1 and a spot in the Rose Bowl.

7) USC – First time ever that USC has started a true frosh at QB in their first game. That’s a lot of pressure. Good thing for Barkley that he has a lot of talent around him. Losing the O- & D-coordinators will hurt. This is gonna be Joe McKnight’s year, though. Look for him to be a HEEsman* finalist this season. He’s like Reggie Bush Jr. Defense lost lots of talent at LB, but Taylor Mays is a man-beast at safety. Barkley gets thrown right into the fire with a trip to Columbus in week 2. Also big games at Cal, at ND, at Oregon, and at home against Oregon State. 10-2 and a spot in the Rose Bowl.

8) Ole Miss – I’m gonna buy the hype coming out of Oxford. Jevan Snead leads they way on offense. Almost all of his WRs are back, and his top returning RB is only a sophomore. Defense is the strength here. Lots of talent on the line and at LB. Secondary is the weakness, but they return 3 guys there. Not sure if that’s good or bad. Schedule gods helped them out, as they don’t have to play FU until the SEC title game. Big games at Auburn, home vs. LSU. 11-2 and a spot in the Sugar Bowl.

9) Ohio State – If Terrelle Pryor learnt* how to throw in the offseason (AHIIK), then look out. But I’m gonna say that he’s gonna need another year for that. He’s still electric, though. I don’t think they’re gonna lose much production at RB because Boom Herron is redonk. Seems like they never lose a step at RB. Offense lost top 2 WR but they have some young guys who can develop with Pryor. And it looks like Ray Small is gonna be eligible, which is suite. Defense lost a lot of talent, but just like RB, they always reload. Big games vs. USC, at Penn State, at UM. 10-2 and a spot in the Sugar Bowl.

10) Oklahoma State – Robinson and Bryant are a solid QB/WR combo. Just like most Big 12 teams, the Cowboys will put up a ton of points. But they’re also gonna give up a lot of points. They’ll win a few 52-45 type games. They’ll be fun to watch. And their coach IS A MAN. HE’S 40 YEARS OLD!! Big non-conference game against UGA. Tough conference games at home against Texas and at Oklahoma. 10-2 and a spot in the Cotton Bowl.

Rose Bowl - USC over Penn State
Fiesta Bowl - Oklahoma over Wava'
Sugar Bowl - OSU over Ole Miss
Orange Bowl - Boise State over VT
BCS Champyunship* - FU over Texas


Softball temchallenge update: 3-4 with a walk and 2 RBI. 2 hits to LF and 1 to RF. And we finally won. For the season, 8 for 10 with 3 walks and a sac fly.

Nice post keith. But when you said "If they can win that game (AKIIK), they’ll put themselves in the national title hunt" about VT, was that supposed to be AHIIK or was that some new acronym I don't know about?

Beth, nice defense by the Braves last night.

Beth said...

I didn't see the game but read about it in the paper today. Reading between the lines it seemed clear that Chipper felt like Prado at 1st should've stretched a little more to get his throw. Did you see the play?

Aitch said...

I did see it. He probably could have gotten to the ball but he might have lost his hand in the process. It was a tough play to make for both of them, but you expect better from Larry Wayne

good post, lots of chalk though other than the BOLD boise st. prediction do you think any other team can sneak into a bcs game that no one has on thier radar?

i wore a yellow shirt today.

2 people have told me yellow looks good on me.

wft?

Bust my slump said...

i don't think that in the last 5 years anyone has really considered the Big East to be one of the better conferences.

Bust my slump said...

nobody has ever been like:

yeah the SEC has Florida, LSU, TN and Bama, but I'm not sure they stack up against WVU, USF, Rutgers and Louisville.

El Padrino said...

well my point was they were not considered weak, then as opposed to now

Beth said...

"2 people have told me yellow looks good on me"

If either of them is a guy you need to be concerned. I don't think that would qualify as a slump buster btw.

True. All their big games are on the road, though

Pastor Steven Anderson stood by his sermon in an interview with MyFOXPhoenix, which reports that the pastor continues to encourage his parishioners to join him in praying for the president's death.

"I hope that God strikes Barack Obama with brain cancer so he can die like Ted Kennedy and I hope it happens today," he told MyFOXPhoenix on Sunday. He called his message "spiritual warfare" and said he does not condone killing.

more expensive than the standard disposable, 20.00 or so.

Bust my slump said...

per the bible:

Digital
Digital one-time-use cameras (and also digital one-time-use camcorders) are available in some markets; for example the US saw the introduction of a digital camera in 2004 [11]. Digital disposables have not had the success of their film based counterparts, possibly from the expense of the process (especially compared to normal digital camera use) and the poor quality of the images compared to either a typical digital camera, or a disposable film camera. Usually, the display shows the number of shots remaining, and once this is completed, the camera is returned to the store. The digital files are then extracted from the camera, and in return for keeping the camera, they are printed out or stored to CD (or DVD in the case of the Video Camera [1]) for the customer. Almost all digital 'single use' cameras have been successfully hacked[2] to eliminate the need to return them to the store. The motivation is not simply to save money but to remove artificial limitations (such as the 25 shot limit on internal memory that can store at least 199 images), extend its purpose, or for some specialist use such as this attempt at kite aerial photography or portrait photography. [12].
