College Football 2007

Two weeks from tonight College Football gets started once again. Whats your prediction for your favorite team?

Michigan Wolverines

My "realistic" prediction 10-2 headed to the Rose Bowl or Orange Bowl.
with the possible losses coming from any of these three: Oregon, Penn State or Wisconsin (the most likely one). Yes, I think the Wolverines will finally get the Buckeyes this year. ( they better! )

Now if the defense for Michigan is a surprise and they reload from last years defense without missing much of step. I think they could go 11-1 or undefeated for the regular season.

I know Mr. Baw's prediction. USC 12-0

I love it when I don't have to talk....

But...one of SC's running back is applying for a transfer claiming that the "backfield is too crowded"....Emmanuel Moody, a great find for someone!

A surprising 10-2 record, losing to Michigan and Iowa State. Gator Bowl bound.

Nebraska (Not a fan but I live here so...)
A very surprising 11-2 record. Upset USC in Lincoln. Lose to Texas and a random Big 12 South team. Beat Oklahoma or Texas in Big 12 Championship. BSC Bowl bound.

I just want as many Big Ten Schools as possible to be bowl eligible.

Purdue, my sleeper...20 starters returning.

I'm excited for this year to start but I'm really excited for 2 years out when Aaron Corp takes control of this team...this year, he's #3 and a redshirt but I suspect he'll play immediately after Mark Sanchez..who I think will flop!

I've followed Aaron through his local high school career and this kid is awesome....6'4/195 and a freshman...he and Mitch Mustain (Arkansas transfer) can fight it out!

I'll go with a 10-2, but losing to Penn State and a team they should beat, maybe Inidana.

Hawkeyes do not play Michigan or Ohio State this year, which is the Big10's own scheduling not Iowas....as if Iowa does play well this year, all you will hear about is how they don't play the Big 2.

I think you'll see USC, Texas battling it out for the NC.

Oops. I misread Minnesota as Michigan when I was looking at the schedule. I don't see Iowa losing to Penn State or Wisconsin as many are suggesting. The defense should be enough to hold down both of them. I'm not sure Ohio State will be that great so maybe they will get more of the attention then a successful Iowa squad.

Michigan has some great players coming up also. Freshman quarterback Ryan Mallet was the #2 rated QB coming out of high school last year and he is already the back up to Henne (Michigans 4 year starter). He is 6' 8" 225lbs and they say he has the strongest arm of any QB ever at Michigan.

Also next year they have a running back from Texas coming in named Sam McGuffie. Search on YouTube for the Sam McGuffie remix highlight film. It is unbelievable. Experts are saying the only player they have seen coming out of high school with as spectacular of a highlight film is Reggie Bush.

Some are picking Wisconsin to win the Big 10. I dont think the Hawkeyes will have any kind of easy time with them. They return most of their defense from last year that was excellent. Wisconsin is the game I'm most worried about with Michigan as I think they are the best team Michigan faces in the regular season and its on the road in Madison, not an easy place to win at.

I think this is Michigan's year. They have one of if not the best offense in college football. A pretty defense and senior leadership. They have the feel of one of those great college teams that you talk about for decades. Michigan is my pick to win it all. I doubt Wisconsin will give them any trouble.

I wish I shared your confidence! I guess as a diehard fan I tend to look at it a tad more pessimistic because I know so much about the team. I will say, as I did before, if the defense gels and are anywhere near last years, Michigan could go undefeated through the regular season. But its a big IF at this point. They are replacing alot of top notch starters. Offensively on paper you are right. They are loaded, I hope it translates on the field.

Michigan has a tough time in Madison, even when the Badgers are average. They are suppose to be good this year, so I'm really concerned about that game. Not to mention its sandwiched between a road game at Michigan State and the finale with the Buckeyes.

Wisconsin is vastly overrated. You do have to play them on the road, and their defense will be the best part of the team.

But everyone looks at their 12-1 record last year, but if you look at their schedule, their OOC teams were just horrible, and they only played Michigan, which was their only loss.

The beat a very, very bad Hawkeye team last year by 3.

If Michigan stays healthy, or players stay out of trouble, then they should be b10 champs.

I hope you are right. I agree though injuries will be a key. If Michigan stays healthy they should have a good year.

I'm excited for Florida State at Boston College, because I get to go to Boston for the first time.

FSU - 9-3 (probably 8-4)

They've got a tough schedule this year (especially non-conference.)

Last 4 games:
at Boston College
at Virginia Tech
Maryland
at Florida
