there has been a lot of polls on espn and other sports websites about whose the favorite to win the national title this year...right now USC and LSU are leading the polls...but here's my take on it...
USC...with loses on both offensive and defensive sides especially if mike williams isn't allowed back will make an USC repeat very hard to come by...and without leinart's favorite target to throw to who knows how he will progress...i see USC being challenged by rival cal in the pac-10
LSU...history has shown us that after a good season sabion generally as a mediocre season after...don't get me wrong...with the majority of his starters coming back it should make for a really strong season for the tigers but overall i just don't see them surviving the painfully tough SEC schedule
OU...bob stoops wasn't able to carry the ball across the goal against LSU or K-state...personally with the lose of strait, everage, lehman, and most importantly harris look for OU to have lost a step but not by much...but also look for a determined UT team to beat them at the red river shoot out
Georgia...the bulldogs are my favorite to go for the title this year and here's why...they too are retaining the majority of their starters from last year...their o-line which was very young has gained another year of experience and with the season ending with a sour taste in their mouths look for the bulldogs to come back with a vengence
Miami...never underestimate the hurricane's...they lost so many starters to the nfl this past draft but they've been the top recruiting school for how many years...bottom line miami will always be at the top except for this year...call me crazy but i think FSU has had enough of them...look for bobby to start getting his guys ready for the hurricanes
UT...these guys have been poised for a big XII championship ever since mack brown took over...and they haven't gotten it done yet...something's got to give...either the longhorns gotta win or brown is gonna be shown the door
well those are the top teams i've seen and what i think of them...please give some feedback...let me know what ya'll think...how far am i off...or did i forget a team that you think has a chance at being number 1
