Scouting Snapshots-Taylor Lewan

These are my preseason scouting reports.  They are meant to just lay a foundation for where these players are going into the 2012 College Football season.  Obviously when I do final scouting reports on these players after the season, things will change.  No guarantees they will change for the better, and I do my best to be objective and pragmatic.  You all may take that as being negative, but if I like a guy I say so, and if I don't, you'll hear that too.

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

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

Saturday college football Game of the week(and some other crap)

There aren’t many weekends that I am not super excited for the weekend of college football but this happens to be one of them.  Not because there aren’t going to be some great games, because once again the lineup of NCAA football is going to be spectacular.  The reason I’m not as excited is because the last week or so, the whiners have been beating me down via email, Twitter, Facebook, and text message about how awful the NCAA is because they don’t pay athletes. 

And if there weren’t enough, this weekend the first BCS poll comes out (which I support) and so many of those same whiners will find a way to squeeze in plenty of complaints about that as well.  Sometimes people just want to find something to complain about.

Saturday College Football Game of the Week Breakdown (and some other crap)

I'd say most agree that this week's game of the week is No.1 ranked Alabama traveling to play the no.19 South Carolina.  I just happen to disagree.  Yes, the Gamecocks are better, but this Alabama team is scary good.  I saw the line on this game was 10.  No way the Gamecocks keep it that close.

We are going to get to see some really great running backs in this game.  And for Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson it could be a huge day.  Unfortunately for South Carolina's Marcus Lattimore, he's going to have to run into guys like Crimson Tide defensive lineman Marcel Dareus (who looked like a top 5 pick against Florida), LBs Dont'a Hightower, and Nico Johnson and Safetys Mark Barron and Robert Lester.  As good as he may be, it's going to be a long day.
