[OFFICIAL] College Football 2009
 
Alright boys and girls the most beautiful season is almost upon us: College Football. The season that sees rivalries, tradition, great games, amazing athletes and performances and sadly the beauty pageant that is the polls and BCS.

Obviously as a huge Longhorn fan I'm stoked for the season.

Here's your preseason polls:

Who ya got for the title game? Who is your sleeper, who is overrated and who will surprise or fall? Top 5 is Florida, Texas, Oklahoma(dumbasses), USC and Alabama.

Let the discussion and the best time of the year begin! :thumb02:

Florida's schedule looks like a cake walk, but the did lose to Mississippi last year. It's a good thing they don't play Auburn this year, it's always a depressing game for us Gators fans. I'm looking forward to Lane Kiffin's failure, nothing against Vols fans, I just don't like the man.

I'll just stick with insanely cheering for my Kentucky Wildcats...I just want a different(better) Bowl game this season! :thumbsup:

Gators will lose one game this year during the regular season...I think they have lost at least one every year since the conference divided and at least one was to a western division foe. I think it will be LSU this year...people forget that we were about to take the lead until our QB threw his 2nd int and it got returned for a TD...after that our defense pretty much quit...and you could tell we lost it mentally.

But I still think they are the best in the conference. Ole Miss will lose 3 games this year.

I think surprise teams will be Arkansas...they got the best RB in the SEC in Michael Smith...he is all around. Charles Scott will be a better pro and he is a bruiser but Smith is very underrated. Ole Miss lost their stud LT, their stud DT, and their only WR that people really gameplanned around. He also ran their wild cat formation. Bama is returning a good defense but they lost Coffee, and the three best run blockers ever to set foot on Bama's campus. With a new starter at QB and a running game that will require a lot of tweaks early on, I expect Bama to lose to Ole Miss, Arkansas and LSU.

LSU has the hardest schedule of any western division SEC team (UGA has a harder one from the east though). Washington is very underrated and that could be a dangerous game for us because no SEC team in recent history has gone to the west coast and really dominated. UGA did last year but the score did not indicate and LSU did back in 03 when they beat Arizona 59-10 (i think)...but Washington has a dangerous QB and a great coach (as far as offensive schemes go)...they could keep it closer then people think...it opened up as a 17 point spread and I would probablyt take UW and the points if I were betting. Our strength will be the o-line...it is probably the best in the country with only USC in that conversation. I look for a dominant running game to carry us to a 10-2 season...losses being UGA and Ole Miss by a total of less then 10 points and that will match us up against UF at 11-1 in the SEC title game and UF wins by 10 in that game and goes on to play for a title.

I think this year though that UF plays Texas in the title game and loses. That is my sensible pick, but I just have a feeling that something happens to UF and they lose like 3 games this year and UGA wins the east.

Two best players in the country this year play defense though. Taylor Mays and Eric Berry are by far the best players in the country.

LSU is looking good to extend their top 5 pick streak with LaFell, Black, Williams, and Scott all with enough talent to be top 10 and the first two with enough to be top 5. Black could be the first guy taken if he stays healthy and test out well in the off season. That is a great LT. Started every game since he was a RS Freshman and has held down the likes of Quentin Groves, Carlos Dunlap, Greg Hardy, Jamaal Anderson, etc. He gives up less sacks then just about any LT in the SEC and that includes Andre Smith and also his run blocking is huge.

LSU has the talent to be a national champ but has the schedule that may result in 3 or more losses. It will really be an interesting season for us.

Also I think UTexas beats Texas Tech by 40+.:thumb02:

LSU's schedule is looking rough!

There is just something unsettling about being ranked #1 in the preseason poll, this being Tebow's Senior season, and having such a light schedule. I just feel I'm being set up for a disappointing season. If the Gators do make it to the big game I cannot see them losing.

ZZ- I hear you on Ole Miss- they are the sexy preseaon pick for a lot of people but they won't be able to sneak up on anyone this year and though Mr. Snead is a stud teams will adjust to them.

Damn skippy on the Texas-Texas Tech game- payback is coming bid time Sept. 19th.

I'm really interested in LSU this year because they will be much better than last year but facing a brutal schedule. Arkansas is a team I wish Petrino didn't back out on our game with them this year because I think it would have been a great and tough road test for us and helped BCS points-wise this year.

Most people are talking about Sergio Kindle on Texas' defense this year(rightly so) but watch out for Lamarr Houston at DT for a break out year and Roddrick Muckleroy at LB(the returning tackle leader), and Brian Orakpo's lil bro at DT. Those are the guys that are going to have to take some of the pressure off Kindle's double teams. Our secondary is fithly sick with talent and depth- last year it was a question mark- this year a huge strength.

I'm pulling for Fozzy Whitaker to be the feature RB and get some big yardage so Colt hopefully isn't our leading rusher again this year.

F*cking juiced JUICED for this season. :thumb02:

I agree your secondary is looking really good...Gideon caught a lot of flack for that big drop but him and his other Safety counterpart (I think they were both freshman or RS freshman last year)...really had great seasons other then the final two plays against Tech...one not tackling Crabtree and the other dropping the pass.

A name that some may not have heard of but need to watch out for this year is Ndamukong Suh....stud DT at Nebraska...he might be the best defensive guy in the Big 12...that conference is loaded at d-line it seems with all american candidates at UT, OU, and Neb.

Oh man 11 days until kickoff...I am just as juiced.

SPAAAAAARTAAAAAAANS!!!

If they could drop their obsession with "run up the middle", I expect great things.
