    2011 Predictions

    Since there is little else to talk about these days, I thought I'd throw out the early lines from the Dru50 Casino & Resort's Sports Book for the Trifecta 2011 season:

    Ohio State (Bravejaf) - Odds to win BCS title 2-1. As usual, the game designers shower love on the vastly overrated Buckeyes. A+ offense, really? This isn't the same team that had the worst offense in the Big 10 last year? With the talent that his team has, brave better grab the hardware in year one. Odds that brave gets pissed by a wildly inaccurate Pryor in at least one user game 1-5.

    Texas (Twister) - Odds to win BCS title 4-1. This Texas team is really set to make a serious run in years 2 and 3, with a slew of really talented freshman on the squad. Twist is a good recruiter and with no user competition for the Texas talent, he's my pick to have the most dominant team over the long haul. Odds that Twist makes inappropriate comments about the well endowed animated female fans in the audience in game 1-10.

    FSU/Clemson (Pep/Shino) - Odds to win BCS title 15-1, mainly due to lack of knowledge by the sports book about these two new competitors. Both teams have talent, FSU should be good long term with no other user teams in Florida.

    Penn St (Hokie Effect) - Odds to win BCS title 10-1. Hokie is a great coach, but I think this PSU team is a year or two away from contending. Odds that Hokie makes a Lane Kiffin move after 4 weeks 1-20.

    Michigan (Recchem) - Odds to win BCS title 25-1. Sorry, but even with Recchem at the helm, I don't see the Wolverines having the horses to compete in year 1. If he can resurrect the program, it could be a powerhouse down the road though.

    Minnesota (Beazus) - Odds to win BCS title 50-1. Much like the teams in the MWC, the Gophers face a steep uphill battle, they aren't as talented as the big boys in conference and will probably struggle a little bit in recruiting. Odds that Beazus posts half naked pictures of co-eds for every game preview - 100% (or Perry and I boot his ass).

    San Diego St/Fresno St/UNLV/Nevada (Dru, BDS, Jman, Perry) - Odds to win BCS title - zero. This conference will be fun, but with Boise St joining TCU and Utah at the top of the conference plus 4 users in conference, each teams goal should be for a 7-8 win year and a bowl berth.

    I think he already made his Kiffin move, leaving the Badgers but you never know with Hokie. I'd play the Iowa State card here buts its been done :)

    What are the odds that I have a "Hangover Moment" the first time I visit UNLV?

    Hopefully I'm better with Ohio State in actual game, rather than the demo. I have a feeling I'll lose at least 1 game where I'm a big favorite in terms of team talent. I know Perry beat me with Minnesota in Rivalry a few seasons ago.

    That Minnesota team played way past their ratings. I would like a shot at that highly overrated Terrell Pryor though...

    I guess the Iowa St joke never gets old huh?!?! But I think we won't have a user BCS Champ out of the Big 10. I see us just beating each other up. My odds on favorite would be Texas.

    Could someone fill me in on the Iowa State gag?

    Publicly if possible so everyone can get a good laugh?

    What's the over under on number of times in the first season that one of us MWC riff raff get a piece of one of the "big boys"? I say 3.

    Hokie took them when Dru took over the Trifecta. After one CPU game, he had a change of heart and moved to Kansas State...thus the Hokie/Kiffin reference.

    K-State just made me a better offer. I swear it had nothing to do with me getting waxed by cpu-Arkansas St......

    Atleast you stayed in the conference Hokie, Kiffin left so he wouldn't have to play against the SEC 8 times a year

    And because SEC was already on to his illegal recruiting tactics. Too bad he now has to worry about the entire NCAA watching his every move.

    As long as they don't come south to San Diego that's cool. We're breaking out the NCAA rule book to make sure we break every rule on the recruiting trail in 2011.

    Anybody ever see the opening to the movie 'Necessary Roughness'? That's the instructional video we're giving the assistant coaches this year.

    Fortunately for me I've been breaking Miami in half with OSU in the demo. I'm aiming to do big things in the other league!

    I have no control over that sir, the schedule makers tell me who to play and when. :)
