It will be here before we know it. Will this be Fulmer's last year on the Hill? One can only hope.

Hey, Illini fans! Mission Accomplished!

7th? We can't even win a competition named after our head coach.

After the Credit Card incident I thought UF would be closer to the top. Oh well, they'll be number one come the fall after they reinstate the guy that shot off AK-47 rounds in a club parking lot...

I can't wait to cringe with every overthrow that Jake Christensen makes.

Also, if your team is going into the fall with a sophomore walk-on named Paki O'Meara as a high possibility as being your starting running back, you could be in trouble.

Go Hawks!

Looking forward to another College Football season in which their is debate over the BCS or Playoff system.

As an OU fan, I am excited about the improvement that Sam Bradford is going to make. If he can do what he did last year (except trying to make tackles after INT's {which cost them the Texas Tech game and a shot at the National Championship}.

As an OU fan, you might want them not to make a third straight Fiesta Bowl appearance.

I really hope Florida's new defensive line coach from ISU pans out. Can't stop the pass without pressure.

Hahaha!

In this season's installment of SEC vs. Pac-10, Tennessee makes the trip back to Cali to take on UCLA and Georgia leaves the comfort of the Hedges for the first time in years to take on ASU. What say the SEC honks about these two games?? I gotta gives tons of credit to Tennessee for making the trip in back to back years, ballsy and it could pay off against a regrouping UCLA team under Neuhisel.

Also in a possibly blossoming rivalry, the Big Ten and Pac 10 go together in a few great matchups. Michigan State comes to Cal and Ohio State comes to USC. Oregon State goes to Penn State and Oregon goes to Purdue. I think the Pac-10 could seriously come close to sweeping this group of games, but the OSU game at PSU would probably be the most in doubt.

I like Danny Mac, lots of intensity. I was hoping he would come back to the state of Iowa once Norm Parker retires as DC for the Hawkeyes.

And yes, I just threw up in my mouth a little bit for praising an ex-Cyclone.

I guess to be considered for this cup the team has be somewhat decent. Because, I'm pretty sure the U of Memphis probably has a really long wrap sheet. If you check their program during the season, I believe most of the player's pictures are actually mug shots.

These billboards make me giggle.

As for America's Team heading to UCLA to open the season... I hope we win. The alumni will be there en masse because there is nothing like the Big Orange Nation traveling to LaLaLand.

Go Vols! Beat the Bruins!

I am curious which weak team from the no-name conference will go undefeated and get a BCS game. Then it all depends on who they draw in said BCS game...whether it be a good team (UGA), or a bad team (Pitt, Oklahoma in 06).

My money is on Boise vs ACC Champ this year. Go big blue!

You lost me around here. Your posts are now irrelevant in my eyes. Good job. :twisted:
