College Div 1 football season starts tonight with The South Carolina Gamecocks going to "Smashville" to play The Doors! 
Vandy gets beat like rented mule...

Who is going to win it all this year? Dark horse favorites? Who you like and whatcha got?

Well... at the risk of jumping on the bandwagon, nothing has happened between last year and this year to convince me that anyone other than Bama and LSU will be vying for #1 again this year.

As for a dark horse... even though they aren't exactly what I'd call a "dark horse," Oregon has proven over the last few years they deserve to be in the discussion, and they can beat just about anyone when they bring their "A" game.  They have a lot of team speed.  So, they're my dark horse team.

The trendy media pick for a non-SEC contender is USC, but I think they're overrated.  They play Stanford and Oregon, but other than those 2, they have a fairly easy schedule, and I just don't think they can hang with the coaching and talent of Bama and LSU. 

I would say Oklahoma is a reasonable dark horse, but over the past couple years, they've consistently underachieved and choked in the big games.

Watch Georgia this year. 
Maybe not a National Championship team, but they should win the SEC East, (sigh). 
They have a good Junior QB in Murray decent running game, good defense.

Yeah... gulp... I... uhhhh.... I expect my Aggies to have a rather... uh... rude introduction to the SEC this year.  If they manage to finish 7-5, I'll be happy.

I'm excited about the future, though.  They have a new coach with a reputation for fielding high scoring offenses.  They have the foundation of a pretty good offense.  Last year, they were one of the highest scoring offenses in college football, but with Ryan Tannehill leaving for the Dolphins, they've got big shoes to fill at QB.  They still have excellent receivers and good RB's though. 

I just hope A&M's defense returns to the kind of dominant play they had in the 1990's when they had so many fast, hard-hitting linebackers and talented secondary.  Their defensive unit got the nickname "The Wrecking Crew" back then.  Unfortunately, in the past 15 years or so, their defense hasn't lived up to the vaunted "Wrecking Crew" title, unless you consider the way they wrecked comfortable double-digit leads in the second half all last year.

I truly believe the move to the SEC will enhance recruiting, with more of those blue chip Texas players opting to stay home rather than leaving the state to play college ball.

Your going to get in trouble, Ric. Steel Benz is going to see this thread sooner or later. Wink

I have zero problems with Bammer's, but I loathe Flo State and Tenn. (As the gentle readers of this fine forum can attest.)

I caught some of the Tn vs. NC State game. Each team looked good (at times) but then had flat moments. TN finally won. It's good to have college ball back on.

Steel, regarding my Bama comment...I guess it's really Saban I don't care for. I do have to say that it's nice to have several good SEC teams to show everybody else how it's done. LOL. Big Grin

Go Big Red!!!!

Unfortunately the Huskers won't be in the NC talk.  I think we're getting close though.  Bama will probably win it all...again.

Clemson looked great as did Bama. My beloved Gators pretty much stunk the joint up. Way too many penalties...a sure sign of trouble (poor coaching and poor performance). I sense another mediocre year. Stare

Well, week 1 is over. As Ric stated, Gators looked bad, but I don't put a lot of importance on week 1 performances. As well as Bammers played, they still have a rough schedule this year. 
On the road against Ark, Missouri, Tenn, and LSU. Not that I don't think they can beat those teams, but you just never know. I think Missouri is going to upset some apple carts this year.  
Absolutely dominating performance against Big Blue the other night. Congrats.  
 
We settled on a QB with Driskel and I for one am happy to see they picked him instead on Jacoby. Nothing wrong with Brissett, but Jeff came out of high school as the top QB in the nation, so we shall see. 

Gators have a fairly easy schedule, as compared to other years. I DREAD going to Knoxville in a few weeks.
Big Orange looked REALLY good against NC State the other night.

Nah.  I've always had a soft spot for Texas' once-upon-a time military school, and I think that Sumlin has them on the right track from what I've read.  It will hurt them that they didn't get to play La Tech to get opening day jitters out of their system, so starting the season with their first SEC conference game may make me rethink my earlier prediction.  Should be fun to watch, in any event.
