    ***G-Unit's 2012 (Year 4) Weekly User Power Rankings & Analysis***



    (THRU WEEK 2)


    1. Notre Dame (2-0) The fighting Irish are the REAL Deal. This powerhouse
    program that Coach Noknee has resurrected is looking scary for opposing
    opponents. In week one the Irish knocked off the highly touted Alabama
    Crimson Tide in a thriller at home. Then won big (as expected) against a
    re-building N.C. State Wolf Pack team. The Irish of course will have two
    more tough conference games that will determine their Big Ten position
    against hated rivals Michigan & Ohio State. Coach Jfunk is undefeated
    against the Irish.


    2. Florida State (2-0) The Noles, much like the Irish look unbeatable. When you look at FSU’s roster, there is almost an All-American at every position. FSU started the season off with a bang beating the Michigan Wolverines handily in week one. The 2011 ACC Champions look poised to repeat again as Conference champs in 2012 and should be in the thick of the BCS National Championship race come seasons end. The massive FSU/Miami match-up later in the year will also have huge BCS implications. Other sleeper match-ups are Coach Dean and his underrated Gators & Coach Trude’s N.C. State team (Former FSU Head ball coach).


    3. Miami (2-0) The Hurricanes have been on a winning roll since the 2010
    season ended. Grizzly Veteran Coach JCA has been with his team since 2009
    and has them on the cusp of National Contenders for the first time since the
    early 2000’s. Miami was dominant in 2011 winning the ACC Coastal Division,
    but fell short against hated FSU in the Conference Championship game. Many
    players are back from last year’s team and want to avenge last year’s
    painful loss. This year, Miami has already went into Death Valley & beat the
    LSU Tigers. Big match-up’s remaining for the Canes are against Georgia Tech,
    FSU, and NC State.


    4. Alabama (1-1) Coach Smace and his Crimson Tide have been building
    something special in the SEC for the past couple seasons. His good
    recruiting from the past few seasons is beginning to show as he has one of
    the youngest teams in all of the college football landscape. While young,
    this team does not show it. In week one the 6-1/2 point underdog Tide
    traveled to #1 ranked Notre Dame and gave the Irish all they could handle
    losing on 30-28. Senior Quarterback Star Jackson is a well-rounded QB that
    can make all the throws in a tree route and scamper for a TD also out of the
    option. It will be on his shoulders once again this year to try to lead the
    Crimson Tide to its 1st ever back-to-back SEC Championships under Coach
    Smace tenure. Big games against Miami, and LSU lie ahead in the 2012 season.


    5. Georgia Tech (2-0) The Yellow Jackets started off the 2012 season off
    with a bang defeating the #22 ranked Florida Gators in week one. Projected
    as the number 3 best team in the ACC, the Jackets have an uphill battle to
    keep their #4 ranking. With a sophomore at Quarterback, Coach Johnson will
    have his hands full keeping his QB calm with big games @Ohio State, vs.
    Miami, and @Wisconsin. Tech’s defense will need to continue to step up and
    help out in these tough user games and try to score defensive points to help
    out their young offense. Week four at the horseshoe will be a huge barometer
    to where this team is.


    6. Tennessee (2-0) The Volunteer Football program has been pretty dire &
    tumultuous from 2009 thru 2011. Former Coach ND resigned from the team after
    the loss to Notre Dame, and the Tennessee program had fallen from grace once
    again. Well… out of nowhere it looks like the Volunteers are back, and it
    looks like for good. Coach Shawn took over the team in the 2012 preseason
    and hasn’t looked back. His ball club defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes in
    week one and it turned a lot of heads in the college football world. With
    big games against SEC foes Alabama, and Florida. We will know a lot more
    about Coach Shawn and the team he has here in a few weeks. But things sure
    look promising that Tennessee will soon be a household name once again in
    the SEC and will compete for Championships. Watch out.


    7. Florida (1-1) The past three seasons the Gators have had no bite. LSU has
    dominated them since 2009, and the last SEC Championship they were in, Bama
    dominated them. But Coach Dean has taken over the recent-troubled football
    program and plans on getting them back on track. Coach Dean in his one
    season as Penn State’s Head Coach took them to a perfect (13-0) record in
    2011 and won the Big Ten Title & BCS National Championship. He should have
    no problem recruiting with the talent-heavy state of Florida. They will be
    doing the Gator-Chomp back down in the swamp real soon.


    8. Michigan (1-1) Tate Forcier & the Wolverines got off to a bumpy start
    against #2 ranked FSU, but dot plan for them to stay down long. The 2011
    National Champ runner-up is back in full force and will have to be reckoned
    with in the Big Ten. On paper, Michigan should get back on track in a road
    game in Raleigh, North Carolina. Michigan also has huge Big Ten games
    against hated Ohio State, and Notre Dame. The Big Ten again will be a very
    interesting conference.


    9. The Ohio State (1-1) Coach Jfunk and his Buckeyes have had stellar
    seasons since 2010 when he took over. With Pryor gone to the NFL, they must
    turn a new leaf at the heralded QB position. Well that got off to a rough
    start when in week one Tennessee knocked their QB Justin Siems out for 9
    weeks with a broken jaw. Now true freshman Lance Clarke will have to take
    over for the foreseeable future. Even with a loss in week one to Tenn, don’t
    expect the Buckeyes to stay down long. Tough games on the horizon are
    Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, and Michigan.


    10. LSU (1-1) Even though the Tigers are one of the top winning football
    programs since 2009, they have had a tough run of hard losses. In 2009 &
    2010 they lost in the National Championship and only managed to win one SEC
    title. Coach Shadow stepped down following the 2011 season after a brutal
    SEC Championship beat down at the hands of the Crimson Tide. Since then,
    Coach BC has stepped in and took the reigns of the program. After a rocky
    start at home against Miami, Coach BC’s ball club responded well the
    following week going to Camp-Randall and getting a hard earned “Wâ€ÂÂ. The
    Tigers have huge SEC games upcoming against Alabama, and Ole Miss. This team
    is a very talented roster still and can make a run at the SEC title if
    conference play starts off well for them.


    11. N.C. State (0-2) The Wolfpack is in the 2nd year of a rebuilding project
    that Coach Trude took on in the 2011 season. After building FSU to a
    National powerhouse once again, Coach Trude abruptly left the program, but
    was not gone for long. He resurfaced back in the ACC as the new ball coach
    at NC St. The Wolf Pack has been in the dumpster of the ACC of recent years,
    but do have talent on the current roster, and more coming on the way. They
    have gotten off to a slow start with losses on the road to UCLA and at home
    to #1 Notre Dame. But expect NC ST. to catch their footing and put together
    some wins in the ACC (Even a couple upsets).


    12. Wisconsin (1-1) The Badger Football program has been pretty stagnant,
    and average as of late. But new head Coach Tuco expects to be a pain in the
    ass of the likes of Ohio St., Michigan, and Notre Dame. Expect the Badgers
    to have their rough patches in 2012 as they begin to build their team back
    to a top 10 program. But I expect them to be bowling in December and reeling
    in top recruits here soon for the 2013 season. Coach Tuco seems to be
    determined and dedicated to put the work in to make this program respectable
    again in the Big Ten. They almost knocked off a top ten LSU last week at
    home, but just fell short. Big games on the schedule against OSU, Michigan,
    and Notre Dame.

    ***Please give your feedback and thought's. I know these early rankings should stir some good conversations for the year, and upcomings games***

    I loved reading this as always.

    As for my thoughts...

    I agree with the top two. Notre Dame has a ridiculous amount of players rated 95+, and I saw first hand just how talented that FSU squad is.

    I think Alabama is very talented but will be up ended somewhere along the road, likely to Florida. I think Coach Dean will get his new squad an SEC title this year. LSU doesn't appear to be quite as dominating as in past year's but the Tigers are still a force to be reckoned with, and Coach Shawn appears to be going places with the Vols, I would not take that squad lightly at all.

    As for the Big Ten, it's Noknee's to lose. That said, I want to exact soem payback on him for that ass-whooping he gave me last year, and JFunk's Bucks always haunt the Irish. Tuco is having some early success with the Badgers and I do not think he should be ranked 12th, but I think he is still 2 years away from competing for the conference title.

    The ACC appears to be the most heated conference at this point in the season. Drunken's squad is phenomenal, and JCA has those Hurricanes goin full tilt. Let's not forget G and his yellow Jackets, they pulled off the upset over the Gators and appear to have as good a shot at the title as they ever had. TRude is busting his balls in Raleigh but I just think the ACC is too talented for him to win it this year, but the Wolfpack will be on the big stage soon.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I would love to continue the streak but I am not holding my breath. Lance Clarke has the potential to be a great QB but right now he is a young kid missing passes he shouldn't be. It's gonna be a long season...

    LSU may not appear to be as dominating as years past but, they can and hopefully surprise many teams this year.

    Miami plays excellent defense and should contend for BCS Championship at end of season.

    My thoughts:

    Big Ten champ-Notre Dame

    ACC champ- GTech( Gtech will be ranked 1-3 next year) My opinion based on rosters).

    SEC- champ Alabama(Champs two of the three years but the game is about players and style of play, not who the user is, Bama has too many road games to get alot of style points in the polls, but are home vs FLA and will not play LSU until SEC champ game if they both make it)

    Heisman- Two man race, but Bama's Jason Mitchell leads most and is #2 and will battle ND's Gray.

    BCS game(ND-38-GTech-20)

    Great job g-unit. I don't know if I'd put us at #3, we tend to fall short in those big games more times than not, this game vs Alabama should help show us where we are. We definitely have a lot to prove and that game against fsu in a few weeks is gonna be huge.

    With Florida, we learned alot in the loss to G-Unit's Yellow Jackets. Another big road test @ Bama, then we'll see how good this team is.

    Very interesting looking back at this now. You were pretty good with the top teams G-Unit. I'm not at my PS3 right now, I'll look at it when I get home, but your write-ups were pretty good.
    My 4 toughest games were definitely against FSU, Ga Tech, and NC State. It won't be long before TRude is a national contender, especially since he stole my back of the future from me, bastard!
