I'm so excited to get this started. I look forward to football every year and now that the spring games have finished, it time for the teams to just grind out practices and prepare for the season ahead. So for this upcoming year, I want to know... 1. Who's your team? Alabama class of 2008 so RTR 2. Who do yout think will play for the National Championship? I'm usually unwilling to take an underdog on this, but I'll go Bama vs the Ducks 3. And the Heisman goes to? Not Menziel. He's no longer under the radar, and while yes I am a 'homer', I think this will go to A.J. McCarron.

As a USC fan, I'm not really expecting too much from this year, but going into the season unranked is probably better since we did very well during the 2-year bowl bans and poorly with higher expectations. The Pac-12 looks really wide open, but I would say it's going to be (and I hate to say it) UCLA vs. Stanford in the title game with Stanford coming out on top and winning the Rose Bowl. Oregon still has a good team, but their biggest X factor is their new coach and I don't think he'll adapt fully to the fast team that Chip Kelly built.

I'm not big on the SEC, but it's hard to imagine Bama not getting into the title game again and as long as AJ McCarron performs well, I also have him winning the Heisman.

In the title game, I see Ohio State vs. Alabama. Maybe the Buckeyes will finally win one on the big stage with Urban Meyer leading the team. It'd be interesting to see how things played out last season if Ohio State didn't have that 1-year bowl ban.

Alabama really lucks out this year on paper as we don't have two difficult games back to back all year long. Last year we had an undefeated Miss St, then away to LSU, and home to A&M; (only loss), and my philosophy is that it's almost impossible to get emotionally ready for 3 big opponents in consecutive weeks. On the Ohio State topic, some of my family are from Columbus and are huge Buckeyes. I just can't see them winning everygame. I think they are still 'young' and will likely fall to an opponent they had penciled in as a win.

I just threw up in my mouth a little.

National championship will be tOSU and Oregon. Everyone in the SEC will have at least 2 losses and the streak ends at 7.

Heisman goes to Marcus Mariota.

Jealousy is an ugly trait :) Nice shout out to Mariota. I wouldn't be surprised by that. I only think McCarron because voters will give him more credit if he's able to get Bama to their 3rd National Championship in a row. Talent wise, he's not Heismen material, although I'd rather have him than any other QB. I still think OSU will lose one this year, and I don't see Bama losing 2. The only game that really could shake it up is LSU, especially since the away team wins that game almost every year and this year it's in Tuscaloosa. But I don't think A&M; will be as lucky, and I'm not sure who else could knock us off.

And sorry for the lack of paragraph breaks, for some reason my brower at work isn't letting me do them. I have a question for you geaux, Les Miles, you still want him or what? For being a winning coach, I hear fans of the Tigers praise and other hate him, both very passionately. What side are you on?

80% win percentage in the hardest division in college football (for reference, Alabama's win percentage over the same time period is 74%, 83% under Saban)

5-3 in bowl games

2-1 in BCS games

2 SEC championships

1 national championship

Anyone who hates him or thinks he's below the upper echelon of college coaches is simply ignorant.

I would agree with you, but a few years ago when Miles was being interviewed by Michigan, I know a lot of LSU fans hoping he'd leave. The man wins, no doubt, but I think some people think his antics are a little too much at times. He isn't called the 'Mad Hatter' though because he's calm, cool, and collected.

I agree, if he does this he will be one of the top 2-3 candidates.  It would be like when Eric Crouch from Nebraska won it.  He won it based on all of his years of work and not necessarily what he did in his Senior year.  A&M; won't be there at the end this year.  This time around they won't sneak up or surprise anyone, especially since you have the Heisman winner as QB.  The defensive players each week will be licking their chops to get a piece of Johnny Football.

LSU fans have been jaded for about 10 yrs now.  Les is a very good coach IMO.  When I was in HS in Louisiana (late 90's), they were still struggling to get 8 win seasons.  I'm thinking for the national title......somebody not named LSU or A&M; will beat Alabama.  For some strange reason, I see it being Ohio St/Oklahoma.

The loss of Chip Kelly will cost Oregon at least a game.   Ohio State, Bama or AtM this year.

I second the tOSU (Go Buckeyes!) championship this year. As far as the Heisman goes, I have no idea but I'm hoping Braxton Miller has a breakout year and takes it home, but I doubt it will happen.

Not gonna happen.  Even if the Suckeyes somehow luck into another perfect season, they would get thrashed by Alabama.  The notion that OSU could beat Alabama is laughable at best.

lol Well, we will simply have to wait and see what happens, now won't we? The notion that you are a real life Miss Cleo is laughable at best! Rolled Tide shirts would be a big seller in Columbus.

If Bama and tOSU played 10 times this year, I think Bama would win at least 7 of those times. tOSU just doesn't match up well against Bama.

For the record, I only think tOSU makes it to the NC this year because the Big 10 (12) is a cakewalk.

    • You’re right. Interesting. I ordered mine just a month ago and Mitsubishi was an option which I see is no longer listed.
    • Went 6 days with no golf due to course closures here at Pinehurst. Played #8 today and surprisingly played well, 12/14 fairways, 9 GIR and 29 putts. 39/38 for a 77. The Groundskeepers built a snowman on the Par 5 6th. A few fairways still had some snow in some locations but the course was playable. Good to get out again.   But more snow is possible this Friday into Saturday.
    • Bill Haas could hit it 25 yards farther, but hates seeing the ball get really high up in the air. He feels like he has very little control over it when it gets up there.
    • Finished Spider-Man and Miles Morales. What fun games. The web slinging through the city lives up to the hype as well as knowing what it's like to have the powers of Spider-Man and the fights never got old. The story for S-M and MM were both very good and they got a lot of details of Manhattan right, although the map was off. Almost finished with God of War and did not expect it to be so good. Having your son along the whole way enhances the story so much. Next up will be Death Stranding and then Bloodborne probably. Going through the Playstation exclusives.
    • Does this answer it for you? FlightScope Speed & Acceleration Profiles - Launch Monitor, Golf Ball Tracking | Golf Simulators | FlightScope.com Find out why FlightScope golf launch monitors' speed & acceleration profiles are huge for club fitting. Check our sample data sets to see it for yourself. Or this? Oh, I gotcha now. The stand has some nice features, but mainly… I can note what notch creates a tilt of 12°, or 17° as preferred by Awesome Golf, or 16° or whatever… and then put the back leg in those notches without needing the tool. I can also do this more easily on uneven floors — in either direction — to adjust for the tilt or roll of the floor itself. If my floor slopes down and to the left, 12° with the tool won't be 12° and level with the Mevo+, so I can use the screw legs to adjust the Mevo+ to be 12°/0°.
