  1. Vandy is a very tough place to play. They have been very tough there over the years. For those that don't know what it's like, it has a raised floor and the teams are not on the sidelines. They are under the baskets. Tennessee is a good team, but they do not really have a center. Teams that have big men can give them fits. If Lawson comes back full speed, North Carolina is the best team in the country. Without Lawson, NC is just a good team with a tough as nails big man down low. I don't think that any team this year is without any problems and I think that that should make for an interesting

    I was going with Tennessee going to the SEC Championship and losing. That means falling to Cotton or Chick Flick Bowl. I was also going with the way that things were going with the Pac 10 and Big 12 to get two teams each in the BCS. That may have changed with Oregon going down. That may get Georgia into a BCS. That would also raise everyone up in order. You also have the "who is going to bring more" factor. Kentucky Fans that have seldom been in the position to go to a major bowl or the Auburn/Alabama winner that is down on how the season turned out when expecting more. The East has been t

    Now it's time to think Projections for Bowls: If Michigan beats Ohio State, then the Big T1E1N will get 2 teams into BCS Bowls. If Ohio State wins, Michigan will fall to the Outback Bowl and Illinois will go to the Capital One Bowl. Both the Big 12 and the Pac 10 have a good chance of getting 2 teams in the BCS Bowls. The thing about the Big 12 is that it only has 4 teams this year. Currently they have only have 6 teams that have qualified for bowls. Depending on how it falls out that may be it. The Pac 10 has 5 teams that have qualified and that may be it too. The Big T1E1N has qual

    Torgo, You did tell me. I really thought that it would like the other SEC games of the day. The VOLS just did not look good at all. No run game, the wide outs looked slow and didn't catch balls that they should have. Tebow was impressive tossing about 4 passes that never should have got off and completing them. Some of those completions were impressive in themselves.

    Well, Troy beat Oklahoma State tonight and it wasn't that close. That doesn't make Georgia's win over Oklahoma State look that good. So the Sun Belt has won their first non-conference game of the year. OSU may have a long year. Baylor may even beat them.

    Torgo: Florida may beat Tennessee this year, but I doubt that either team will win by at least 20. Over the last 6 years, 2001 UT by 2 2002 UF by 17 2003 UT by 14 2004 UT by 2 2005 UF by 9 2006 UF by 1 I am looking at a high scoring game with the winning score being by no more than a field goal.

    Predicitons on Games coming up this week: Southern California over Nebraska big. Nebraska did not look good at Wake. NU may be looking for a coach that plays NU type football. Florida vs Tennessee: The team that has the most yardage on the ground wins. Kentucky over Louisville: UL and UK both have no defense. It could go either way, but UK is due. Michigan over Notre Dame: Maybe ND should bring back their former high school coach. They are that bad. Ohio State vs Washington: Both these teams have been surprising. OSU has the defense to stay in the game, but do they have any

    I wonder how far Virginia Tech will fall. Even after the beatdown that would have been even worse if VT hadn't put the Frosh quarterback in, I think that VT is the team to beat in the ACC. It should be between them and BC. I was impressed with WF. That makes the USC game going into Nebraska at little less impressive. Nebraska was very lucky to have got out of North Carolina with a win. TCU has no offense for the entire game. Zilch! After 31/2 quarters of having their defense on the field, there was nothing left. I'll give it to La. Tech, they were ahead most of the game and went fo

    I would think that MTSU showed that UL is overrated last night. They lost to Florida Atlantic and couldn't even move the ball. Against UL, they looked like a scoring machine. Louisville had better work on DEFENSE big time. Cincy showed that their new coach is going to have them moving up in the conference. OSU did not show well for the lower end teams in the PAC-10. Again it's early and they could improve, but they did not look like a team that had anything. UGA vs USC should be a good game. South Carolina always plays Georgia tough and I think that Spurrier has them thinnking that they

    According to http://www.mratings.com/cf/compare.htm comparing 23 rankings Georgia went to 11. Massey had them at 6. LSU is 1 with USC 2 and Florida at 4. Michigan fell to 25 and Tennessee to 28. Florida State fell to 35 after Daddy lost again to his Son. For the Notre Dame followers, they are at 50.

    The first game is tonight. It's Football Time! I'm not expecting much from Mississippi State against LSU, but at least it's a game and unlike the Pros this one counts.

    Here are the biggest games for the opening week: Tennessee at California, Both teams need this win if they are going to be seen as being contenders within their conferences. In addition, Tennessee plays Soutern Miss and at Florida in their followup games and needs a strong start to make it through the beginning of their schedule. Got to go with Tennessee. The Vols last visit to the West Coast was not so good. UT started out well, but as they were moving down the field in what looked to be the first of many scores their Senior quarterback was lost for the year. The primary backup had played

    I know that RichyB83 would be bummed by that, but I think that it would add a whole lot of interest to the season to knock the unanimous pre-season favorite out of the race at the beginning of the season or at least put them behind the eight ball. That would make a number of teams start thinking that it might be their year and give teams in the PAC 10 the thought that they could de-throne USC. I know that Cal tied for the PAC 10 last year, but ISC has been at the top over the last number of years. Troy winning any one of their games vs. the SEC would be another big one.

    Games Start Thursday. As my other half says, I'm lost through the first week in January. Then through the beginning of April for Round Ball. I'm hoping that Mississippi State will make it a game for the first half against Auburn so that I can at least get the blood flowing. Here's hoping that the VOLS take it to the Golden Bears on Saturday.
