    Your 2009-2010 College Football Thread

    I present power rankings by ESPN:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/powerr...on=2009&week=0

    Nobody from the Big East making it. Rutgers did get 25 votes.

    As much as everybody is picking Florida this year, and rightfully so, I am going with Alabama to win it all. Just a gut feeling.

    Bama has a new QB, doubt that happens.

    I think one of these 5 teams have a chance. OU, Texas, Florida, USC and OSU. The only reason I threw OSU into the bunch is because of Pryor.

    Pryor would have to actually throw better than Lamar Latrell for them to even think about having a chance.

    Absolutely. Pryor is that just freak of nature athlete that comes around every so often. I have heard reports that his throwing motion is coming around but that still needs to be seen.

    IMO he has the game changing ability that Vince Young and Michael Vick had in college. They could single handily lift their team to victory.

    I couldn't agree more.

    I think he will have a great year.Ohio State will need it because while they do reload every year they have lost a ton of weapons on the offensive side of the ball.Lots of unproven guys will be out there in the huddle looking for their sophomore QB to lead them.Tressel will have his work cut out but the Buckeyes should be fine this year.

    My question is...

    Will the Florida Gators cover the 73 point spread in their opening game vs. Charleston Southern. It is so tempting to take the points on this one.

    Alright, RZers, I really, really want to get into college football this year. I have always held out due to the ridiculous post-season. (I'm in favor of a tournament playoff.) But, I've decided that I am being too productive on Saturdays, and feel that college football can go a long way to solving that problem.

    So, now the question becomes which college to root for. There are a few options I am considering, but definitely can be swayed.

    Right now I am leaning toward Cincinnati, being the local team and all. I like what BK has done for the program, but I wonder if U.C. can ever really compete with the big boys.

    There is also Ohio State. Somewhat local, good program, big reputation despite having trouble winning the big games lately.

    Or do I pick another school? Go SEC? Look for an underdog to root for? A storied tradition? Help!

    Here's my suggestion: Road trip.

    If you're in Cincinnati, you're well within striking distance of many of the biggies: Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Penn State, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia are but a few of the road trips that might be fun and relatively easy to coordinate. Or think about where you have friends/family and keep an eye on sale fares. A cheap ticket to Atlanta or Charlotte could get you to see Georgia or Clemson. Auburn isn't that far from Atlanta, either. Lots of good ball in Florida. Mississippi is just down the road from Memphis, and the tailgating is supposed to be unreal (with a special emphasis on the "tail" portion of tailgating. )

    There are plenty of other experiences that would be outstanding. I'd love to see a Navy home game. Wouldn't mind seeing the Texas A&M 12th man at some point, either. A game at Washington on the sound would be killer. The Florida A&M band would be worth the price of admission alone.

    Few things in life are as enjoyable as spending a Saturday afternoon in September or October at a college football game. Rather than worrying about identifying a team to root for on the front end, I say get out there to some games and let the specific allegiance evolve over time.

    Oxford, Mississippi is the best place on earth to tailgate and it's not really even close.

    Second.

    There's not much I enjoy more than a college football Saturday in front of the TV with a bunch of good games to flip between, but games in person are even better, and they're fun even if you don't have a dog in the fight.

    UC's a good team to follow, since they are local and IMO their program's turned the corner to be considered legit nationwide.

    You could go against the grain if you want, and have the constitution to remain true to the program, and be a Michigan fan.

    You could keep it in state and root for the Buckeyes.

    You could jump on the Wildcat bandwagon and root for UK.

    Lotta options in college football, and none of them are bad IMO. Just gotta find a team for a reason you like and can then defend as a fan.
