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

First Round Breakdown - The Quarterbacks

As the 2011 NFL draft approaches, even with all the concerns over a potential work stoppage and all the things that go along with it, the draft is happening and with the added dynamics we could see some real changes in how teams approach the draft philosophically.

As I see it, at worst there are 3 quarterbacks that will be taken in the first round.  I personally have 4 quarterbacks with first round grades.  But in a year where there could be a hard rookie salary cap the financial risk of drafting a player who may not pan out is diminished and that could mean teams will go ahead and draft a quarterback in the first round thatin past years they would wait until the 2nd or 3rd round.  So in a best case scenario, I can see 8 or 9 quarterbacks go, if not in the first 32 picks, in the first two rounds for sure.

BCS Championship Breakdown

With the BCS Championship game only a day away, and the Auburn Tigers set to square off with the Oregon Ducks in Glendale Arizona, there have been a lot of thoughts running through my head.  And rather than just let them all fight amongst themselves in my head, I am going to put them down here.

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

 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 State of College Football Address

My fellow college football fans, I am speaking to you today, to help you understand where we are as a nation.  A College Football Nation.  We have seen some troubling waters, but we have forged ahead and I feel like we have new hope, and we are energized as we move into a new stage of our season.

The Cecil and Kenny Show - The Ever Twisting Saga of Cam Newton

I, like you have been beaten over the head the past couple of days with all the talk about Auburn University Tigers phenom QB Cam Newton, and all the allegations that are coming forward ranging everywhere from cheating on tests, to stealing a laptop, to possibly accepting somewhere in the Neighborhood of $200,000 to attend Auburn over other schools.  At least it has given us a break from Brett Favre and Randy Moss I suppose.  But what I think is being missed in this is there are really two debates here that don’t go down the same path, for me at least.

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.
