15 days away! Looking forward to 9/3.

Any of your teams got a big match up right off the bat? Clemson is playing Troy. Troy is kinda dangerous and might give the Tigers a scare, but I'm thinking Clemson ultimately wears them down and runs away with it.

Really looking forward to week 3 through 5...Clemson plays Auburn, FSU, and Va Tech in that stretch. That should give me a pretty good indication of where they are.

Is it bad that i'll probably pull for Clemson against Auburn?

I'm sorry you had to read that, Kris. Who will you put your support behind in the Alabama/Penn State battle?

Since you're a Bama fan, this is really the right thing to do.

I believe so too. I don't really care about the SEC loyalty thing. I want Auburn to lose every chance they get.

I feel the exact same way about the Gamecocks.

tOSU should win every one of their non-con games. Turned out to be a pretty weak one considering all that's happened at Miami FL now.

How I see the Big Ten shaking out (homerism included):

Annoyingly Named B1G Division 1
1. Ohio State
2. Wisconsin
3. Illinois
4. Penn State
5. Purdue
6. Indiana

Annoyingly Named B1G Division 2
1. Nebraska
2. Michigan St
3. Iowa
4. Michigan
5. Northwestern
6. Minnesota

Just bought my tickets for Arizona State vs. Mizzou in early September. Should be a fun game.

A few thoughts on this year (mostly Big 12 stuff)...

- Nebraska in the Big 10 is going to be weird. I bet they lose a game or two to a lesser opponent just because the teams aren't familiar with each other.
- Oklahoma should not be number one. There is a very small chance they run the table in the new look Big 12.
- A&M is overrated.
- Kansas State, Kansas, and Iowa State will really struggle to win 6 games.
- An SEC will probably win the national championship again.
- An ACC team will lose in the Orange Bowl.

They get Wisconsin, Penn St and Michigan State at home and avoid Iowa. Big schedule advantage provided they can survive the back-to-back road games at Nebraska and Illinois.

Cautiously optimistic about UT as we begin the post-Greg Davis era. Will be happy if we can win at least 9.

Ha. 8 wins tops, and that's only if you get a favorable bowl matchup.
