College Football Top 10

  1. Georgia Bulldogs - They return a lot of starters, including arguably the nation's best back in Knowshon Moreno. This team went on a huge run at the end of the year almost putting themselves in the NCG. Stafford has a gun and should be able to take advantage of teams crowding the box.
  2. USC Trojan - USC always re-loads, and the biggest question mark is the QB. Sanchez got good playing time last year and has the experience. Mich Mustain should give him a run. The defense should be great. Ray Maluga is a great linebacker, and Taylor Mays could be a playmaker at safety.
  3. Florida Gators - They bring back the He15man Trophy winner Tim Tebow. They finally have a runningback in Emanuel Moody, and red-shirt freshman Chris Rainey is electrifying. Percy Harvin, arguably the nation's fastest player returns. And Brandon Spikes leads a defense that needs to improve for the Gators to have a shot.
  4. Ohio State Buckeyes - A team that looks solid on paper, but they've been embarassed the last two years against Florida and LSU. I expect Ohio State to lose to USC, but then to roll through it's conference and have another shot at the NCG. Laurinitas is a solid LB. Beanie Wells is, in my opinion, the best back in the country, and is by far ohio states' best weapon on offense. Does the big 11 really lack speed?
  5. Oklahoma Sooners - I think I have this team ranked a little high. They lost a good amount of talent in the draft, but they have a solid QB in Sam Bradford. The defense should be solid again.
  6. West Virginia Mountaineers - They lose Steve Slaton, but arguably improve with Noel Devine. They lose their fullback, but Devine and Pat White are two of the most athletic players in college football and may have to carry the team this year. If WVU can get over the USF hump, they could be a national title contender.
  7. LSU Tigers - LSU lost a TON of talent in the draft. They have the proper players waiting in the wings. The defensive line may be the best in college football. The biggest question mark for this team is quarterback. No Ryan Periloux. Can Andrew Hatch carry the offense? If he can, LSU will be a big threat.
  8. Mizzouri Tigers - Mizzouri lost some luster in my mind when they failed to beat Oklahoma again, but gained it back with a beatdown of Arkansas. Chase Daniel is a solid QB and a great leader. MAclin has speed and should tear threw most secondaries. Can Mizzorui crack the BCS Bowls this year?
  9. Clemson Tigers - This team is a solid team in probabally the weakest conference. James Davis and C.J. Spiller make up the best 1/2 RB combo in college football. They are both top 5 backs. Clemson should be able to take advantage of a weaker conference and their superior running game.
  10. Auburn Tigers - Auburn is an interesting team. They bring back good talent. But, they bring IN a new offense. Kodi Burns is supposed to be the dual-threat QB to run that offense. Trey Blackmon is the MLB on the defense and if he can live up to the hype, Aubrun will be a very scary team. They also have good running backs with Tate leading the way, but will fumblitis strike again?
