I realize that college football season started last week, so maybe this is fudging just a little. However, my Seminoles don’t play their first game until tomorrow evening so, technically, the season hasn’t started for me.
Here are a few random predictions for the world of college football.
Oklahoma and West Virginia will play for the national championship with the Mountaineers taking home the hardware. As much as I would like to see Georgia do it this year, the SEC schedule is simply murder. Oklahoma on the other hand has a much softer schedule (I can hear Missouri fans screaming at me now) and the tools to get it done. If first-year coach, Bill Stewart, can keep the ‘Eers focused through the Big East schedule, they will win this rematch of last year’s Fiesta Bowl.
Florida State will win 10 games in the regular season (I told you these were fearless predictions). I hate to admit it, but Florida will probably prevail again this year and possibly Wake Forest. After last week, though, I have to believe our guys can play with Clemson, Virginia Tech and the rest of the ACC. New quarterback Christian Ponder will bring a better arm and more mobility to Jimbo Fisher’s offense and if the defensive line can stay healthy, the Seminole nation just may be back on the warpath.
Michigan will have a losing record.
Alabama will win the Western Division of the SEC.
Contrary to Lou Holtz’ predictions, Notre Dame will NOT go undefeated this year, but they probably will beat Michigan.
UCLA will upset USC and knock them out of the BCS Championship game.
USC will beat Ohio State, but the Buckeyes will beat Michigan.
Penn State will beat Michigan, but Bobby Bowden will finish the season ahead of Joe Pa in total victories.
Utah will be the surprise team in the BCS picture this year. After all, they have already beat Michigan in the Big House.
Michigan fans will attempt to hang this blog in effigy.
You heard it here, first, except for the part about Ohio State beating Michigan. The news is all over Ohio right now.
What sayeth thee, noble and informed reader?
