The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
I don't see OSU losing to USC. A first year starting QB coming into the Shoe and beating Ohio State... I'm not sure it's impossible, but I don't think it's likely. They also lost a lot on defense, despite the return of Taylor Mays.
Outside of USC, the only thing standing between OSU and a title game appearance is their game at Happy Valley. If they get by USC and PSU, I can't see them losing another game.
I still say Florida is the favorite. I don't know how they can't be considered the team to beat, actually. As sick as that makes me.
As big of a fan as I am, I know UC isn't quite on the same playing field of OSU, Florida, etc. yet. That doesn't mean they can't compete, but they just don't have the depth and recruiting ability that these teams have because they have not been a good team for a very long time. If things continue like they are now, that will change. Either way, they are a lot of fun to watch, and will compete in every game they play. I don't think Bearcats fans will be surprized to see them repeat last year, but outsiders would be.

This should shake out to be one of the most exciting College Football seasons in quite some time. Headliners Tebow, Bradford and McCoy are solid stars that will be exciting to follow..... and a strong field talented teams like USC, Oregon, Alabama, OSU, and many others will mean every week will have plenty of blockbuster matchups.
The September 3rd game between Oregon/ Boise State will be a barnburner to get things rockin.

Alright, I'm officially rooting for UC. Go Cats! (Now I have to learn the intricacies of the college game vs. NFL, besides the weird overtime system.)
NCAA: Think football's version of extra innings. Each half-inning consists of a team taking possession of the ball on the opposing 25 yard line. After double-OT, teams must go for 2 after scoring a touchdown.
BTW, good choice with UC.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
I am excited for the Miami RedHawks opener against UK at PBS this saturday. Hopefully, I can stay excited for more than a quarter.

Boise State taking it to Oregon right now.
13-0 at half.
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
Boise should have won by about 5 TDs. Only Boise's self-inflicted mistakes kept it from being so.
Both Boise and Oregon looked like garbage tonight. Actually, not 1 of the 4 teams on ESPN looked any good.
The Oregon player who punched the BSU player after the game deserves a hefty suspension, regardless of what might have been said to him.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
I mean, the BSU player came up to him, hit him on the shoulder, starts talking crap, and ESPN makes it look like the Oregon player is the only one in the wrong. bullcrap, that BSU player deserved to get punched and that Oregon player deserves a suspension.
