A SEC team. Which one? Who knows? Favorites are Bama, LSU, and ARKy.

Oregon v LSU and Oklahoma v FSU are almost first round playoff games.

Bama
LSU
OU
Oregon
Stanford
ARK
tOSU
WISC
NEB
OkSU
BSU

VT
USCe

I predict the winner of OU/FSU game vs. SEC champion, with Boise as perennial dark horse.

Oregon may win the Pac12, but with a rebuilt O line they will vote themselves out of the NCG when they play LSU.

tOSU will struggle with a new coach and green QB.

Stanford peaked last year. They will miss Harbaugh and Luck lost his two top receivers to graduation.

Wossamotta U's gonna beat Tick Tock Tech for the national title this year(ha-ha).

Who'll win the 2011 BCS Championship. That's easy...the SEC. We don't even need to play it. Next question.

Fairly well concur, which is why I have Bama and LSU as #1 and #2. Hard to see FSU beating OU and I think LSU will take Oregon. OU will get there and do its typical fold against either LSU or Bama. Right now of the top two I would give Bama the edge simply because LM used up a lot of luck last year and the LSU QB is a flake.

Okie Lite? Do you know something I don't? I have them around 4th in the conference. Maybe 5th, depending on what Mizzou can cobble together.I think Okie Lite will lose to Zero U, the College Station sheep molesters and the 'Horns.

Not a TAMU believer yet at all. OkSU has a fairly good recent history of going to bowls and winning them, and a good system/HC in place. My money is on them taking 2nd in conference-they do get 9 starters back on offense and did beat TAMU and Texas last year, after all.

Final point, unless you respect Arizona a lot the OOC for OkSU is a joke, there is no ARK and the BYU/UCLA slog Texas gets seems harder as well.

Oh, forgot to mention this as well-in the list I would have LSU or Bama as representing a 65% shot at the crystal football, the others listed as a 30% shot, and the rest of the teams out there as having a 5% shot.

Agreed. Will say Bama. But here comes the disclaimer...

That dammm Le Smiles can find luck just about anywhere - and the QB flakes can be remedied with one hook, and insertion of Mettenburger, so if Mett can put the O on track, then LUS will be on top cuz all they lack is a steady QB, IMO

Whoever cheats the best and doesn't get caught until at least November. We have seen that the new NCAA policies since the USC infractions is to "look the other way" on infractions that might F up the Bowl season like punishment of Cam or the Tat 5 would have.

Now if they find stuff AFTER the bowls are done they might actually vacate wins or sumthin, depending on the team? The conference? The mood of the infraction committee? I don't know what it depends on, but if you do please help me out; this oldtimers disease or whatever it is that is making CFB so confusing lately has got the better of me...

Rice won't be banned, and I think they can handle either of those two. Seriously, it looks pretty wide open this year. Who are the most likely candidates at this point? Wisky? Arky? Zero U?

Don't think Arky will survive the SEC West, but whoever does plus your other candidates. For a dark horse I'll toss in the TCU BSU winner (which I hate to say I think will be BSU this year due to experience, but I'd love for it to be TCU).

Yeah, but my guess is teams are finding ways to defend the Ducks up-tempo game, like they did at the end of the year in the PAC. Without the tempo offense clicking they don't get out of the PAC undefeated.

I disagree. I think they compete for the Big-12-10-whatever. Until I see someone other than the Big-2 win tho...

I just think that Okie State is well coached and is kinda like the Froggies: can do more with less. Losing the OC could hurt tho, but I think they already got guys ready to step in at RB. And for some reason the "Sugar Daddy" schools been doin' good.

I'd love to say Ohio State, but a NC is just not in the cards this year. I'll give a slight edge to LSU, but they have some quarterback issues. After that, I'll give nods to Oregon, Wisconsin, and Oklahoma as the next four. One potential darkhorse that I see is Nebraska, depending on how they move on from Prince Akumara and if Taylor Martinez can continue to improve at the QB spot.
