Best of the Bunch-Defensive Backs

I think there is something mystifying about defensive backs. I also think for the most part it's smoke and mirrors.  When the NFL starts giving fans access to the all-22 camera angle for games this year, you are going to get a chance to see that coverages in the NFL, and along those lines college football aren't as complex as we are led to believe.  Having said that, there are still some tremendous talent in college football this season and some groups that can make plays even without complicated schemes and assignments that require an exceptional football IQ.  The 4 groups I have chosen for this list are comprised of exceptional athletes and groups that work well together.  And with all due respect to a guy like David Amerson who's the best cornerback in the country he's not enough to put his group on this list.  One note, the Georgia Bulldogs would be on this list, if not for the off field problems and potential suspensions they are facing.

10 Must Watch Games for the 2012 College Football Season


I started putting this list together as I am prepping for the upcoming college football season.  I've broken the list into 2 groups, non-conference and conference matchups.  Some of these games will have BCS significance and others will be more of traditional importance, but they all look to me to be great games and well worth your time whether you are a fan of the teams or not.

Top 5 non-conference games

5. BYU at Utah September 15th-This matchup has been a tradition for many years, but since the conference changes in 2010 we've been counting down to the beginning of the end of the Holy War.  This game is less about 2 great teams fighting for BCS position but marks what may be the end of a great football tradition.

4. Auburn Vs. Clemson(in Atlan

Best of the Bunch-Offensive Line

College football is all about matchups.  That's the biggest difference between college and professional football. Great pro coaches use schemes, and great college coaches exploit individual matchups.  When it comes to the offensive line, that's the heart and soul of any college team.  Those front line matchups can make a ground game dominant and a passing game efficient.  And those of us who are fans of the big uglies this is a great season.  I had to narrow it down to 4, but there are easily 10 groups who could have made this list.  Much respect to the groups at Wisconsin, Oregon and USC, you all have fabulous groups that just missed the cut.

College Football Pre-Season Top 25

Preseason Top 25

1. Alabama-Even with their losses, they are still so talented on both sides of the football.

2. USC-Probably a national title contender last year if not for their sanctions. Should be in the thick of it all year long.

3. LSU-Another team that took significant losses in terms of personnel but looks ready to reload.

4. Oklahoma-There are questions on both sides of the football, but you can’t deny the passing attack promises to be explosive.

5. Oregon-This ranking could change greatly if the Ducks struggle to find someone to step in for Darron Thomas at quarterback.

Curt's Heisman Hopefuls for the 2012 College Football Season

I tell myself every year that I am not going to do this. And every year I do it anyway. I’ve voiced my opinion about the “value” of the Heisman Trophy many times so I will save the keystrokes. But in my old age what I have come to understand is that it has its place in college football, just as bowl games do.

Predicting all the Bowl Games

Let's roll through the Bowls, all 35 of them, in chronological order (maybe). I'm going to lay out who's playing in each one and then make a prediction on who'll win. Yet again I'll point out if I put money on my own predictions my kids would starve. I heartily recommend that you don't base anything financial on my predictions!

 New Mexico Bowl
 Who: BYU vs. UTEP
 Winner: BYU

 uDrove Humanitarian Bowl
 Who: Northern Illinois vs. Fresno State
 Winner: Fresno State

BCS Bowl Predicitions

BCS Championship Game - Auburn v. Oregon
As much as we’d like to think that one of these teams is going to fall before the title game, I just don’t see it.  Auburn has a tough go in the SEC title game, assuming they aren’t spent from the Iron Bowl, they are still much more talented than South Carolina and should win this game. Oregon and Oregon State sounds good on paper, but the Beavers just don’t have enough offense to hang with the Ducks.
