So I've changed my ring tone & call tone to "go bama", got a new Bama Girls shirts, got a new big screen for the games, got a schedule on the fridge, at my desk, and in my purse, & got tickets ordered to take my oldest to his first game. I'm SO ready for some football!

So what do you think the season will look like? What conference do you think will be the best?

I'm looking for #14 for Bama of course! I'm also thinking Auburn is going to shock some folks. They played way better than I expected last year. And I really want to see them do well. It will make it ever sweeter when Bama beats them in the Iron bowl.

Of course the SEC will be the best conference. But I'd like to see what Florida State will bring to the table this year. Not sure if they'll be any good this season but I'm hoping they'll look better than anyone expects.

And finally Troy University. if none of you have heard of them they are in the sunbelt. Last year they were beating LSU for the first 3 quarters. It's my school and I really want to see them move up into the sec within the next 5 or 10 years.

He screwed Tennessee over and then cut and ran when the NCAA started poking around...The guy is dishonest, unloyal, and quite frankly a cheater...I wouldn't want him within 100 miles of my program if I was an AD

I know.. I know.. It's kind of a local thing here growing up in LA your either hardcore USC or Bruins.. I love Bruins basketball, and girls softball, but Trojans all day every day for football. Sucks so much controversy though in the program.. Reggie Bush really embarrassed his alumni as well... Oh well Trojan up baby!! :tongue0011:

Yeah it's just a darn shame.. I can see their point of views growing up with not a lot of money then having all these cars, money, and trips paid for at such an early age most people wouldn't think twice.. However Reggie had a lot of scandals early in his career.

I understand why they would do it, it would be tempting...But if you are that amazing of a player, you have to know that you are getting that money in a year or two in the pros

The violations issues regarding illegal contact with agents is a multifacet problem. 1 players can't work and can't get help to pay for their needs not covered by their scholoarships. If universities could give living cost scholarships to help some of these boys they'd be far less tempted to listen to what agents offer them. Second, I uderstand universities normally give agents an opportunity to interact with players. they let agents on their sidelines. But the universities need this to get good recruits. no one wants to play for a school that is going to shut the door to them being showcased to agents. Agents are the only ones involved that have 100% power to stop the problem. these players can't get in trouble if nothing is offered to them!

I think Kobe would be a fair return on that investment. :laugh:

My son looks at a man wearing an LSU shirt at Sports Clips (where he get his hair cut) and dead serisous says to the man "What's your shirt say? LS Who?" I felt so bad that I laughed so hard then had to get own to my son for being "disrespectful" to an adult.

The SEC is always overrated, their top 2 teams are always amazing but the rest of the conference is average. The best conference this year will be the Big 10 but I'm not sure if a team will be able to run the table in that league. By the way, I'm gonna call it now, Va Tech is gonna kill Boise State.

I think the word you meant to use was "under" not "over". I know it was a typo. See under woud be indicated by the 04-05 season when Auburn was kept from the Championship over USC & Oklahoma. And now that all games Bush played in are going to have to be vacated, and Oklahoma wasn't undefeated that leaves Auburn (an SEC team) as the only undefeated team from that season. Stands to reason THEY should be the champions. And I'm not an Auburn fan.

The last 3 of 5 champions were from the SEC and should be they last 4 of 5.

Goodness I didn't think my blood pressure would go up until Saturday over football and look what you've done to me.

Once again I said their top 2 teams are always amazing but the rest of the conference is average. Last year Bama and Florida were amazing, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, Tenn, Auburn, South Carolina, Kentucky and Arkansas were all eh last year. Thats the way it always is in the SEC.

Unless I missed some breaking news when I was in class all night, he is only out for the opener...Not that big of a deal, he would only play the first half anyways once they are up by 35 at the half

You have got to be smoking CRACK to say the SEC is over rated.(no offense, figure of speech)
Right now we have a few teams going through a transition period and will still be the toughest div. in the country.

Bama showed out playing 2nd and 3rd sting players! I was proud of the sec teams. Vols had the biggest spread of any game I've seen so far. They might be a factor this year.

They might be a factor this year.They could be a factor, but that win does not tell us anything about what to expect from them...They played Tenn-Martin, any of those SEC teams(except Ole Miss:laugh:)would run right through them as well

Boise State off to a strong start...Up 10-0 halfway through the 1st quarter

I was watching the game at abuddy's place & almost got booted to the curb when Boise scored that last TD. Scottie's a "good Virginian" & was rooting for Tech, but I was backing the Smurfs. Needless to say, he was not amused when I started screaming!! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

There is only 1 Oregon ranks in the AP & USA polls. So I'm not sure what other team you are talking about that's ranked in the top 25.

I was think it was Oregon State, not UofO. I heard someone on the radio compare them (Oregon) to a smaller local college defensively so I assumed it was the smaller school.

I was think it was Oregon State, not UofO. I heard someone on the radio compare them (Oregon) to a smaller local college defensively so I assumed it was the smaller school.AP Top 25
RK TEAM RECORD PTS
1 Alabama (47) 1-0 1484
2 Ohio State (4) 1-0 1412
3 Boise State (8) 1-0 1399
4 TCU 1-0 1256
5 Texas (1) 1-0 1192
6 Nebraska 1-0 1105
7 Oregon 1-0 1077


anyone on the radio who compares Oregon to a local college is delusional and has no business discussing sports because they obviously don't know anything about sports

UofO (Ducks) is 7 on AP, 8 on USA. no other Oregon team is listed.

i figured this was the oregon beavers which is state based on the comments made by a caller, not a host on a sports radio show.

in general if bama or auburn are not in the sentence I don't retain 100% of what's being said.

They lost to TCU last week and I completely forgot about how that would drop them out of the top 25...TCU is in the top 10 though....My point from the beginning though has been that there are 2 damn good football teams in Oregon, both of which would likely beat Tenn.
