    I'm predicting Oklahoma. Everyone else lost too many key pieces with the exception of maybe Notre Dame and Penn St.

    I could see West Virginia winning it all. They looked pretty good last year and have all the important guys coming back. Easy schedule also.

    I dunno... the Big 12 got pretty weak after this last draft... Aggies chance to slip in a championship title! :pigfly:

    Ohio St. or Alabama, IMO. OU ain't got nothin'.

    I'm not a Texas, A&M, or OU fan. I don't really like the Florida schools either. I guess I choose Notre Dame.

    Too early to decide who will win it all right now, but Ohio St., ND, and West Virginia have a good chance. BTW people watch some WV games if you want to see a studhorse kid in the making Slaton will have the Reggie Bush hype in a year or two. Oklahoma should be pretty good this year and if Peterson stays healthy they could get some people. My school TAMU is solid and we have a QB better suited for the system, but I still dont think we are there yet.

    Slaton is a BA. HE tore up Georgia last year... of course it's easy to tear up a team with a slow linebacking core... that takes bad angles...and sucks against the run...and ...:brickwall

    I like Notre Dame and Oklahoma, although I haven't kept up with the spring ball at all. Ohio State, West Virginia, LSU, Miami, and Virginia Tech are all capable of having good seasons too (among many others).

    I'll go with Ohio State.

    They're replacing 9 starters on defense but when has tOSU ever struggled on defense? They've got two tough games on the road (Texas and Iowa). Only other worthy opponent is Michigan and they play at the Shoe. They also don't have to worry about a conference championship game possibly tripping them up (SEC, BIG12, ACC).

    LSU has a good chance (especially getting Ally Broussard back) but, really i think it is a toss up who will when it all. Every major contending school lost a valuable to the draft.

    Baylor University....hey it could happen, and then Disney would have to make a movie about it. I'm sure that oddsmakers in Vegas have them as their ultralongshot underdogs.

    Its not just about having a top QB, they need to have all the other pieces, and I just don't see them having all the needed pieces yet.

    Ohio State or, if Penn State beats us, Penn State.

    Sure Ohio State lost thei D-Line core, but our school simply produces them. Granted we may not have an AJ Hawk this year, but our guys will step up.

    Troy Smith has grown so much over the last two years, he'll be a college QB to be feared this year.

    Sure, Holmes leaving will leave a gap to be filled, but I think Ginn has FINALLY learned how to run routes, and will be able to fill the gap left by Holmes. And we still have our super TE Gonzalez out there!

    With a weaker D, Tressel is going to have to coach up an EXPLOSIVE offensive, something we don't normally do. Should be an exciting year for us regardless.
