I'm not sold on Gary Crowton. Sure the Ducks put up big points against weak teams last year, but late in the season they really broke down. I don't think the Spread Offense style that he runs is very well suited for a guy like Matt Flynn.

Jonathan Stewart was stuffed last year vs. USC w/ Crowton at the helm.

Come on. USC may be in a class of their own this year. They have so much talent it's not fair. Booty, Turner, Gable, McKnight, Hazelton, Baker good God the list goes on. I like Early Doucet as the #2 wideout in the SEC and I think he's got a lot of skill but I don't see LSU having the offense that SC does. Now, on defense, that's a whole different story.

I'm as big an 'SC fan as it comes, but even I'm not going to admit that they are slam dunk, head and shoulders above everyone else.

-They first have to prove that the O-Line can pave the way towards a dominant run game.

-After that, Booty has to gel w/ the receivers.

-Special teams could be a glaring weakness for the Trojans after losing K Mario Danelo. Coverage teams need to be tighter, the kicking game needs to be decent and someone has to emerge as a punt returning threat (Joe McKnight? ROJO?)

-The Trojans also need to get back to forcing more turnovers and getting more sacks from the front four. Pete Carroll is great at blitzing, but they'd be so much better if they could generate consistent pressure from just the front four.

-Finally the Trojans have to avoid injury.

If these things can happen, I'd be very confident in USC. But as it usually is, a lot of things have to go right for a team to win a Championship.

What are you talking about? Because I said SC has a better offense? LSU is one of the top 3 most talented teams in the country. They're not going to score points like Texas Tech, but their defense is unreal and I think it will be LSU/USC for the title, though I'd love to see Michigan in there.

God I hate seeing the name Rojo. I would have loved him. But hey, we got Warren which was a bigger need. I wouldn't be surprised to see Rojo and McKnight get reps at returns. I don't think you have to worry about the front four this year. Jackson, Ellis, Griffen oh my. I'm sure I missed some studs don't flip out.

People just find a way to underrate us every year.

Personally, if LSU and Michigan are both 12-1 and USC is 13-0, Michigan will play in the MNC. Just how things are.

Yeah right. Not after all the SEC yokels start *****ing and moaning "The SEC is better than the NFL" yadda yadda yadda. Especially after last year's NC game.

LSU vs. USC last year would have been very interesting. But tradition is tradition, so Pac-10 vs. Big 10 it had to be.

Better believe it. They're that good ;) I think the 13 refers to the NC game.

Acreboy, the Rose Bowl has traditionally been Pac-10 vs. Big 10, and the committee jumped at the chance of USC/Michigan. Just tradition, that's all. Plus, you got an extra home game out of the deal and you got to make ND look overrated again. That's always fun;)

Wisconsin

10-2
11-1
12-0

It will be one of those three, I'm fairly confident in that. Tyler Donovan or Alan Everidge will be more than a fine replacement for Stocco (maybe even an upgrade). They both have real game experience, Everidge at KSU and Donovan in the final two regular season games.

The three games that should present a problem are Penn State, Michigan, and OSU. Wisco has owned OSU as of late, at home and away, so I believe that should translate into a least one victory in three. The game with Michigan last year was actually extremely close through the third quarter so it should be interesting especially since its at Camp Randal. I just don't see Morelli being able to do anything against the Wisc. defense. So most likely 11-1, BCS at large birth with the guaranteed birth going to Michigan.

Well the SEC is so tough that we have a conference game. I factored their conference game in too by mistake. They always win their conference out right.

This is true, I just believe that LSU/USC would have been a better game. Anyway, yeah, making ND look overrated was fun.

Cal
Anywhere from 9-3 to 12-0 depending on how well our coners develop. The biggest test will come from SC as usual with tough stops at Oregon and against Tenn.

As an OSU fan, I feel lucky. Only 2 tough games in Michigan and Wisconsin, which they'll probably lose. Out of the others, I think they could have an upset at a smaller school like Indiana (Who I think will be really good), so I'll say 3 losses for the Bucks.

OSU will NOT lose to Penn State this year.
