College Football

With college football only 5 weeks away, I thought I'd ask you who do you think will be the final top 5. If you guess correctly all 5 teams as they are rated a the end of the season (before the playoffs) I'll send you a nice package of stuff. My final picks:

Florida State
Alabama
Oklahoma
Michigan
Clemson

If Alabama is in the top 5 this year, it will be because of their crushing defense. Still haven't settled on a QB that I know of. THey have 3 prospects, but none of them have been very good.

I always hesitate to do things like this because one key injury can kill certain teams.

Example: If QB Watson goes down, Clemson is fooked.

Also, the dumb ass voters are always voting for their fav teams at the expense of more deserving teams; and they vote lower for their hated rivals or conferences.

But, I'll give it a go just for the hell of it. In no particular order....

LSU
Clemson
Ohio State
Florida State
Georgia

(I'm being ridiculously over optimistic with my last pick. But maybe everything will go right and the stars and planets will align. I would never bet $ on them to even win the SEC East this year.)

Kentucky wins the SEC EAST and finishes 9-3

I know what you mean. 2009 Bama wins the NC and the Saints won the Super Bowl. I was dodging dark clouds for months in fear of karmic lightning.
