2006 College Football

I know a lot of people on here probably go to schools where football is a non factor, but what are everyone's predictions for the season?

Iowa Hawkeyes win it all!!!!!!

Okay, not really, but I hope they're decent this year, after losing Hodge and Greenway.

They should be pretty good, most preseason polls have them top 20 if not top 15 I believe. They did very well on recruiting last year.

SEC! SEC! SEC!

I predict that Kentucky will not win the SEC. Nor the Eastern Division of the SEC. If Providence is with the Cats, we may be fortunate to make a bowl game. Most likely in some forsaken place. But what the hell, the fans in the stands always have a hell of a good time.

GO CATS!

FRIDAY CLASSES AFTER A THURSDAY NIGHT GAME

PARKING
North: An hour before game time the University open the campus for game parking.
South: RVs sporting their school flags begin arriving on Wednesday for the weekend festivities. The really faithful arrive on Tuesday.

GAME DAY
North: A few students party in the dorm and watch ESPN on TV.
South: Every student wakes up, has a beer for breakfast and rushes over to where ESPN is broadcasting "Game Day Live" to get on camera and wave to the idiots up North who wonder why "Game Day Live" is never broadcast from their campus.

TAILGATING
North: Raw meat on a grill, beer with lime in it, listening to local radio station with truck tailgate down.

South: When you're near it, you'll hear it. On game day it becomes the state's third largest city.

South: Drinks served in a plastic cup with the home team's mascot on it. Filled less than halfway with soda, to ensure enough room for bourbon.

THE SMELL IN THE AIR AFTER THE FIRST SCORE
North: Nothing changes.
South: Fireworks, with a touch of bourbon.

COMMENTARY (MALE)
North: "Nice play."
South: "Dammit, you slow sumbitch - tackle him and break his legs!!"

COMMENTARY (FEMALE)
North: "My, this certainly is a violent sport."
South: "Dammit, you slow sumbitch - tackle him and break his legs!!"

ANNOUNCERS
North: Neutral and paid.
South: Announcer harmonizes with the crowd in the fight song, with a tear in his eye because he is so proud of his team.

AFTER THE GAME
North: The stadium is empty way before the game ends.
South: Another rack of ribs goes on the smoker. While somebody goes to the nearest package store for more bourbon, planning begins for next week's game.

Pretty good post.....but please change Dave Matthews Band on Southern Tailgate Entertainment.

Also failed to mention the fraternity house scene on gamedays in the South. Open bars, tremendous amounts of food....tons of alumni and family, hundreds of fellow fratters and sorostitutes.....all starting early in the a.m. after a long previous night of band parties and hefty bar tabs.


On a side note. We win the Big XII South after beating OU in the Shootout by pummeling their anemic offensive line and exploiting their defense that will rely solely on two good LB's. We then play Nebraska or Colorado as usual in the Big XII Championship and gain an automatic BCS bid.

I'm gonna be biased, and predict Auburn to win the west, and then beat Tennessee in the SEC championship game. I think Florida and LSU are both mediocre, each winning 9 games. The SEC championship will get Auburn to the BCS, with an overall record of 12-1. I think that nobody of note will go undefeated, so having one loss may get them to Tempe (NC game, not fiesta), especially considering the fiasco of 2004. I think the 5 teams in the national title mix will be Texas, Ohio State, Auburn, Miami and West Virginia. Hopefully Auburn doesn't lose to Washington St., in which case my plan is obviously destroyed.

Penn State isn't on the schedule. Ohio State has to go to Texas and Iowa, as well as taking on Penn State and Michigan at home.

Don't get me wrong, I like Iowa, but when I think of tough places to play, I can't say Iowa comes to mind.

Good luck with that.

I'm gonna go ahead and disagree. Tennessee doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of getting to the SEC championship game, let alone winning it. I'm gonna say LSU and Auburn are going to have fantastic seasons. However, my true hope is that Alabama dominates and either they or Georgia takes the SEC.

ROLL TIDE!
