College Football 2008 season
- 07-06-2008, 11:21 PM
I've wanted to go to a game at Carter-Finely for a long time now. My best chance distance-wise was in college, but now that I have the money and it's not worth going to a UM-NCSt game. (Who wants to watch some 9-7 barn burner with 18 combined turn-overs?)

Plus with Javarrious James still around - he would have split the carries early on at best.
Kid probably made the best decision with regard to the NFL. They won't win anything though.
Miami at least has a chance in '09.

jmh80, you know your college football. Good to see
I think when UM and UF face off it will be closer than what some are predicting, but I still think by the the second half we will pull away. I expect big things out of Chris Rainey, who Urban Meyer has already stated will start in the slot, but will also get his touches out of the backfield. The middle of our D line is a question mark, as we've been plagued with problems at DT throughout last year. I've heard our corners have made great strides but time will tell. Our DE's will be monsters for us this year though...that I will guarantee. 6'8'' DE Carlos Dunlap will be a household name before too long...
jmh, How is DE Allen Bailey's rehab coming along? I heard when he tore his pec but I hadn't heard anything else since then.

I hope to hit every home game this year.
I also love to follow Georgia because of Knowshon (he grew up one town over, got to play some ball against him back in high school. Dude was INSANE, top 3 draft pick when he comes out)

Dude is a BEAST. He looks the part of a D-end. Dunno how he'll play though.
I admit I'm not up and up with the Gator D outside of Major.
I dunno if you guys will pull away. I think Bill Young will make adjustments on the fly.
Who knows though. Meyer can adjust the O as well.
That's why you play the games, gentlemen.

Our offense is both versatile and deadly. However, it's not what worries me. It's our defense. Major Wright should be a HUGE factor, however we need to play MUCH better than last year. IF that happens, you can expect UF to be in contention for the national championship. I think Riley Cooper should have a strong year at WR. Chirs Rainey is one fast mofo!
JMH, you have to hit me up when the game gets closer. I'll be up there for the game for sure. Even though youre a UM fan......BOOOOOO. , we need to have a beer before we do battle. The whole SEC looks to be good this year. Bring it on!!!

Attention Gator fans - discuss the following post I saw on a Rivals forum about your depth at safety now that junior Dorian Munroe is out for the season with an ACL tear.
I know you guys like to rip the lack of experience of The U - but I see no real differences ex-Wright in either secondary.
You'll be playing true frosh Will Hill - we'll be playing true frosh Ramon Buchanon.
(Also saw DB John Curtis is out with an ACL tear also. What's the deal with him? I've not heard of him.))
Florida's depth at safety has taken a severe hit since the end of last season.
Jerimy Finch, the top-rated safety in the 2007 class by Rivals.com, has transferred; Jamar Hornsby was kicked off the team after he allegedly used the credit card of Ashley Slonina, the Florida student who died in a motorcycle accident in October along with former UF football player Michael Guilford; and four-star recruit Dee Finley, the sixth-best safety in the 2008 class by Rivals.com, could not make it academically and will go to prep school at Milford Academy in New York this season.
The pressure now builds on Wright, who finished fourth on the team in tackles as a freshman with 68, to become the leader at safety. Wright also had four forced fumbles and an interception.
Sophomore Ahmad Black, a converted cornerback, will be expected to see some more action at safety. He was one of the surprise performers in spring practice. Bryan Thomas might also be an option. Five-star freshman Will Hill, the top-rated athlete by Rivals.com, should also see more action since depth has become such an issue.

my national title prediction is the winner of UGA/UF against the winner of OSU/USC, although it's very possible for the loser of USC/OSU to run the table for the rest of the season and slip back in. SEC will be the best and big ten will be weak again. For Heisman, I think Tebow will have a great shot with such a good Florida offense, but they might hesitate to give someone the Heisman twice, so Chase Daniel, Knoswhon Moreno, and my sleeper pick, Michael Crabtree all have a shot.
here's an interesting article about the top "workout warriors"- http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/column...uce&****3420212

graduated from auburn but a huge crimson tide fan so I'm screwed no matter the way but, I think this is ga best chance for a title...all they have to do is run the table...not an easy task but very do-able...actually I'm pulling for them this yr, somewhat.

Thanks for the support (somewhat)....go dawgs!!
It will be interesting at the end of the year to see if either Knowshon or Stafford will leave early. Either way, GA is pretty well set with Caleb King (who some say is better than Knowshon) to run the ball. And QB Logan Gray is possibly a better passer than Stafford, but with better legs.
I'm also looking forward to seeing if GA's true freshman receiver can live up to the hype.
Gotta be honest, I don't really know much about the depth of the other teams in the SEC. But I do believe that the SEC is teh conference to beat. The ACC has made some good strides though in the past few seasons. Clemson will be a team to watch this year.
On a side note, even if OSU runs the table this year, I believe they should be banned from the title game just based on their past two year's performance.

But - the Iron Bowl? Man alive.
Not sure I agree. I'm taking a wait and see approach with the Dawgs early on in the season. If they can make it through - maybe, just maybe.
But for all the hype last year - they didn't win their half of the SEC...

Those are your 4 contenders for the SEC East title.
Agree with you on OSU. I'm tired of them going in and losing. It's getting retarded.
