Every week T-Roc will share his thoughts on what is going on in college football, make picks and fire back at your nasty comments. What to learn more about him, check out his first post or visit his archive.
Who needs the Olympics? Things are just getting good in the sporting world. Pennant races, kickoff in the English Premiership with NFL kickoff to follow shortly, and NHLers will soon put away the golf clubs and start drinking light beers to prep for training camp.
Best of all, college football kicks off this week. Here’s how I see the BCS conferences playing out this year - feel free to call me a douchebag in the comments section below.
Champ - Virginia Tech (again)
Chump - Duke (again)
Best team to lay money on - Wake Forest (again)
Best team to fade - Miami (again)
Most disappointed fan base - Clemson (again)
Most important regular-season conference game - Clemson at Wake Forest, Oct. 9
T-Roc says - Wake’s kicker, Sam Swank, is a big reason why I’ll play the Deacons a lot. Reliance on a kicker is a sure sign of a shite conference.
Champ - South Florida
Chump - Syracuse
Best team to lay money on - Cincinnati
Best team to fade - Connecticut
Most disappointed fan base - West Virginia
Most important conference game - South Florida at West Virginia, Dec. 6
T-Roc says - I’ll likely play on the Big East a lot in early non-conference games. I’ll keep you abreast of any corresponding bankruptcy proceedings.
Champ - Ohio State
Chump - Minnesota
Best team to lay money on - Northwestern
Best team to fade - Michigan
Most disappointed fan base - Michigan
Most important conference game - Penn State at Wisconsin, Oct. 11 (for 2nd place)
T-Roc says - I’ve stopped hatin’. This shit’s tight. But I doubt anyone can prevent OSU from going 8-0 in the conference with a bunch of those wins as blowouts.
Champ - Oklahoma
Chump - Baylor
Best team to lay money on - Colorado
Best team to fade - Texas
Most disappointed fan base - Texas
Most important conference game - Texas Tech at Oklahoma, Nov. 22
T-Roc says - I’ll love watching the Big 12. I dunno if anyone can touch Missouri in the North. I’ll play the Tigers as favourites a lot, methinks.
Champ - USC
Chump - Washington State
Best team to lay money on - Oregon
Best team to fade - UCLA
Most disappointed fan base - Washington
Most important conference game - Oregon at Arizona State, Oct. 25 (for 2nd place)
T-Roc says - USC should go 9-0, but the Trojans have looked that way the last couple preseasons and gone 7-2. So fuck them. And fuck Pete Carroll too… pretty boy.
Champ - Florida
Chump - Vanderbilt
Best team to lay money on - Auburn
Best team to fade - Arkansas
Most disappointed fan base - Tennessee
Most important conference game - LSU at Auburn, Sept. 20
T-Roc says - Too close to call at the top. A lot will come down to schedule, injuries and coaching decisions. I like Urban Meyer and Tommy Tuberville to win their respective divisions.
