I think we can do it especially with Sanchez going down but I want to see how Nate Costa does first and how he does coming off of his ACL injury(Costa didn't start the Sun Bowl for us, Justin Roper did) and our RB Jeremiah Johnson also is coming off a ACL injury. If he comes back 100% healthy I don't think we will lose as much as people think at RB because of Jonathan Stewart leaving for the NFL Draft, we didn't lose anything when Johnson came in for Stewart.

I was talking about the ability of your offensive coordinator to prepare a QB. You guys got some of the best speed and athleticism in the Pac 10 and your team is ready for another year like they had in Harrington's final season.

Why? Because you got an overrated coach or you got rid of a coach that made your program relevant?

Petrino is a joke...look at the state of Louisville football in just 3 years of him running that program and do I need to mention the Falcons? The guy is a dictator that runs his team like Hitler ran Nazi Germany. The end result will be the same with everything crumbling down around Petrino. You guys will be lucky to finish 5th in the SEC west this year.

Just putting this up for a little comparison but really except for a spot here or there for certain teams pretty much identical to the coaches poll. Most notables though(I may be off a couple of years but) Michigan- first time not ranked in the preseason AP poll in 22 years and Florida State in 25 years.

Neither deserve it either. I gotta be honest, WVU may not have lived up to their rankings yet, but they still should be in the top 5. If they are going by past experience and always losing the games they should win (i.e. Pitt) then UGA should be nowhere near #1. Talk about a program that has underachieved. They got free reign recruiting in a state of over 9 million people and 2 division 1 schools. The other is an elite academic program too. They should have way more titles then they do.

I think Michigan will be a huge disapppointment this year. No offensive line, unproven RB's and QB, young wideouts, a very unproven defense (that still gave up 40+ in their bowl loss), and that makes for a long year in Ann Arbor.

Ole Miss is going to be the surprise team in the SEC west. I think Jevan Snead is a good player and should be the starter at Texas. McCoy got the knod initially because of his big name (I heard from much of the press that Snead looked way better in practices). Probably what led to the transfer. And we all know Nutt can turn a program around.

I think UGA became the sexy pick after destroying Hawaii last year- though I don't think that was that big of an accomplishment. A lot of people wanted to make Hawaii out to be the Boise State(I'm still snickering over the OU game in the Fiesta Bowl) of last year but I was confident they would be crushed by the Bulldogs. The SEC meatgrinder of a schedule plus just losing their starting left tackle preseason does not bode well for them.

Yup- no surprise on Michigan and FSU- I just like bringing up the history stuff. Rodriquez is in for a super tough first year and FSU is far from being the powerhouse they used to be.

It's funny with Snead here at Texas because after VY left we were going to go with less running and "zone read" plays and be more pro-style passing attack. That worked well for most of the year(2 years ago) but last year when we struggled offensively when switched back to more zone read with Jamaal blowing up late and even little Colt getting some nice long runs in. With more zone read- Snead probably would have been better suited. The rumors I heard was that once they named Colt the started Snead was not going to wait and see if he would get a shot and wanted to bolt immediately. Can't blame him and I wish him success at Ole' Miss.

On August 30th I'm going to attempt my first ever double header of Division I college football games. Hawaii at Florida @ 12:30pm in Gainesville, then Tennessee-Martin at USF @ 7:30pm. Gainesville to Tampa is about 90 minutes away...hopefully the UF game is a blowout so I can hit the road a little early.

I agree with you that beating Hawaii wasn't anything because I thought they were really overrated from what the media was saying and the Bulldogs proved it. This is a little off topic but now some people are starting to get crazy again about Colt Brennan because he has been doing good against third stringers in the pre-season for the Redskins.

The thing that pissed me off about Hawaii is that Colt Brennan got so much attention yet Graham Harrell got none with way tougher competition and comparable (if not better) stats.

UGA is going to have a very tough road. Their blocking issues get worse because their all-world FB Brendan Southerland will be out for most of the year too.

I love where we are. #6 is great because almost everyone is picking someone else to win our conference and our division. I remember back in 2003 we were picked to finish in the same position. I can't wait to exceed the media's expectations.

I'm a Huge Michigan fan but I just want this season to be overwith. With either Nick Sheridan or Steven Threet starting at Quarterback the best we are going to do is a 8-4 type season if are defense (which is going to be damn good btw) carries us.

However I'm exicted to see some of these small freshman with crazy speed get some play. I mean idk If you guys know who Sam Mcguffie is but if you don't you need to learn. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4IJ17ODo_s

Also Terrance Robinson, Martivous Odoms (although he's a little banged up), and Michael Shaw are all so fast and dangerous that at least Michigan will be exicting on offense.

And on Defense watch out because with Donovan Warren (a guy in the Ty Law, Charles Woodson mold), and Bo (I can't spell his real name) Cissiko Michigan will have one of the best secondaries in 09-10 and if Warren stays for his senior year then 10-11 as well.
