(Too good of a QB in Sam Bradford, tough as nails)
(Crabtree & Co. will get to title game)
(Big East will prevail, finally, this year)
(a season in the SEC is too tough to endure)
5.The Ohio State
(Big Ten Champs will falter early at USC)
(Chase to the Heisman Trophy: Daniels will win)
(Road games: Volunteers, Bulldogs, and Razorbacks? Forget it)
(Lite road schedule/Bowden's big year)
9. Arizona State
(Pac-10's Best Team...bar none)
(Mac Brown was given a freebie last year)
(No Dirty Sanchez? No Top 10)
(Mountain West Leader)
Just not there yet: Wisconsin, Auburn, Tennessee, Kansas, Notre Dame, and Alabama
Keep in mind people...it's hard to mention all conferences and their teams. This is off of memory.
2. Penn State
8. Michigan State
11. Minnesota (not yet Brewster)
Chase Daniels will win the Heisman Trophy
I love Wisconsin. But let's me realistic. The quarterback is the position is a big Question Mark.
Plus, the defensive secondary is too light to compete with the down field threat of OSU.
In 2006 I picked Florida to win it all, earning me 600.00! In 2007, not as good. Let's compare.
1. USC (3)
2. Mich (18)
3. Florida (13)
4. LSU (1)
5. Louisville (NR)
6. Oregon (23)
7. Wisconsin (24)
8. Texas (10)
9. Hawaii (19)
10. Cal or UCLA (pick'em)
Ranked by me in August of 2007. In (x) is actual ranking, see below as well.

9. V. Tech
*10. Boston College
Now keep in mind people; I did not bet a single dime last year. This year is different. My wife is allotting me $200.00 to bet on college football. YEA. Last year, it's a good thing I didn't. No one...and I mean NO ONE could've have predicted that out come.
Generally I bet on games in the lesser conferences...like the MAC (Thursdays usually), Big East (Thursdays usually), WAC (over/under), and ACC (spread). Seldom do I parlay or do teasers. I simply bet on the spread or the over/under. Typically, I have had come out ahead by more than 15%.
I like College Football A LOT.
