8 Players eligible for the NFL Supplemental Draft

Every year there are a few players who for one reason or another find themselves ineligible for school, and if it happens during the right window, they can declare for the NFL Supplemental Draft.  It's not a true draft in the traditional sense, it's more of an auction.  

Quickly, the draft allows teams to bid with a pick, in any of the traditional 7 rounds.  For example if a team bids their 4th round pick, and no other team bids higher, that team gets the player, and forfeits that pick the following year.

This year per Gregg Rosenthal @greggrosenthal on Twitter, 8 players have found themselves in a position where they were not eligible to return to their schools in the Fall so they find themselves waiting for July 12th to come and see if their football careers continue.  

The 8 players in this year's draft are pretty unremarkable.

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.

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.

The BCS Run in: Two Weeks to go Edition

And so here we are at the tail end of the season and everything out there is pretty much still to be decided. At least the really big prize anyway. With 2 weeks to go there's still 4 unbeaten teams in contention for the National Championship Game and as of right now, it could be any 2 from 4 (yes really!). So who's got what to come and how much have they got to do to reach College Football Nirvana? Here's the grid:

1. Oregon 2. Auburn 3. TCU

My new Heisman Top 5, and the big Top Ten Power Poll

My new Heisman Top 5 starts to squarely pair up with the top teams in the country.  Sadly, there are no dark horses this year like last season.  As much as I'd love to drop some sleeper names in my list, this just isn't the year for it.

This top 5 is pretty chalk by my Heisman predictions, and I'm ok with it, so I hope you are too.  On some level you have to go with the Heisman unwritten rule of best player on the best team.  The real debate at this point is more about who the best team is I suppose.

5. Justin Blackmon WR Oklahoma State - I suppose if any guy qualifies as a sleeper it's Blackmon. He is such a good player, he just makes all the best CBs look silly week after week.

Ten Things I learned this week in college football

10. There is no reason to panic in Norman - Yes, the Oklahoma Sooners probably should have beaten the Texas A&M Aggies.  And their hopes for a Big 12 Title and BCS Bowl bid are pretty much gone.  But it's ok.  First, no Sooner fans went into this season with National Title aspirations, so let's not be shocked here that they aren't quite ready.  And look to the future.  This team is playing 13 Freshman on their two deep, and 13 more Sophomores.  So between 48 guys on their 2 deep, 26 are Freshman or Sophomores.  The future is bright.

College Football Game of the Week, and some other crap

First off, I need to apologize for not getting any content up on the site last week.  I need to apologize to my readers, as well as the great group of guys who make this site happen.  I needed to hold up my end of things and last week I did not.  Sometimes life, and by life I mean being a full time school teacher, full time graduate student as well as father and husband eats up whatever tiny remaining free time I have to actually take the thoughts and ideas I get from watching college football(which I always do), and getting them to the site.  I owe it to my regular readers and I owe it to John, Ben, and Mark, my close friends who I get to do this site with to get information out there.
