    I stole this idea from another league, but figure it will be fun to generate some discussion and predictions for the year ahead. Obviously we are all new to each other, but that will make our predictions and other statements that much more interesting. I'm sure Wick will lay out some more details on content and other things as we move ahead, so some of these may end up as their own threads at some point.




    Coming into our first season, what teams start off as the favorites?

    What teams look like dark horses to overachieve?

    What's your prediction for your final record and ranking?

    Who is your pick for the Heisman?

    Who is going to win the mythical recruiting national championship?

    What team/s do you expect to be long-term powers?

    Who do you expect to be your biggest user rival and why(other than the dude in your conference, that's too easy)?

    Any other predictions or items you'd like to discuss?

    That will do it for now, have fun with your responses and I'm looking forward to the start of a great new league.

    I like! I can definitely get into these types of threads. They will make the dynasty that much more interesting, and I have so much free time at work.

    Texas, Notre Dame, and Georgia are the strongest teams, so gotta go with those.

    What teams look like dark horses to overachieve?
    Either Big East team or Mizzou.

    What's your prediction for your final record and ranking?
    10-2 regular season, top 10.

    Who is your pick for the Heisman?
    Aaron Murray

    Who is going to win the mythical recruiting national championship?
    Texas will win it, and the recruits will go on to under perform, as is the Texas way.

    What team/s do you expect to be long-term powers?
    I think most of the teams will be pretty good in the long run. The parity in the schedules should create up and down years for everyone.

    Who do you expect to be your biggest user rival and why(other than the dude in your conference, that's too easy)?
    Probably Jolts57. I am not a fan of Michigan.

    Any other predictions or items you'd like to discuss?
    The SEC will not win a national title this year!

    Good stuff schreck! (y)

    The U. Why would anyone not want to play in the 305?

    Michigan. I can only be terrible for so long.

    Who do you expect to be your biggest user rival and why(other than the dude in your conference, that's too easy)?
    I guess I have to go with Wick. Look forward to meeting you in Texas week 1.

    Gotta make it 7 years in a row, UGA taking the BCS championship, in controversial style of course.

    A team with the primary color of orange will win the Big 12.

    Definitely not me..I'm going to be playing as Virginia and thats going to take some time to build. But for now i'd say Texas and Notre Dame

    What teams look like dark horses to overachieve?
    I would like to say myself :D haha but I would guess Louisville(the bigg dawgg)

    I'm guessing i'm going to end up either 8-4 or 7-5. If i'm 8-4 i'll be #24 overall in the rankings

    Who is your pick for the Heisman?
    Matt Barkley

    Who is going to win the mythical recruiting national championship?
    Texas, or Notre Dame

    I will go with Georgia and Texas.
    What teams look like dark horses to overachieve?
    Louisville for sure. He seems pretty confident in his ability so I will give him credit.
    What's your prediction for your final record and ranking?
    7-5, I don't have much confidence in the first season. I will probably struggle in the user games to start. And unranked.
    Who is your pick for the Heisman?
    I would say Barkley but I would have to bet it comes from a user. I will go with RB Malcolm Brown from Texas.
    Who is going to win the mythical recruiting national championship?
    Miami..... Nevin Shapiro......
    What team/s do you expect to be long-term powers?
    Texas and Miami
    Who do you expect to be your biggest user rival and why(other than the dude in your conference, that's too easy)?
    Really have no idea. I am just going to guess me and Mizzou have some good games.
    Any other predictions or items you'd like to discuss?
    Rutgers will finish in the top 15 in recruiting consistently.

    Better answer my own questions :).

    Coming into our first season, what teams start off as the favorites?
    I'd probably give the edge to Texas coming out, even though they haven't been good in a few years, EA will overrate several of their players and they are loaded with talent anyway (99 OVR, really?!!?!. Oh and I agree 97 OVR for ND is outrageous). I'm sure Wick is a baller too.

    What teams look like dark horses to overachieve?
    I'm going with Missouri. They have a solid team, and if they can beat up on the powerhouse CPU teams they will jump in the rankings fast.

    What's your prediction for your final record and ranking?
    I already posted 12-0 in my team preview ;). In all honesty though, I am really good at blowing close user games, so I'd assume I lose 2 of those in mind numbingly stupid ways. I'll go with 11-2 with one of the losses either in the conference championship or before. I'll plan to finish around #8.

    Who is your pick for the Heisman?
    This is a tough one, some of the big dogs aren't on our user teams. If Jolts can use Denard (without being a cheesing bastard :)), then that might be the favorite right there. In all seriousness though, it would almost be cheesy not to run like crazy with him, he's had 2 straight thousand yard seasons now right?

    Who is going to win the mythical recruiting national championship?
    Sadly, probably Texas. I'm going to try to give a run for his money though. Hearing mixed reviews of the new recruiting system, be interesting to see how it works in the OD and who is able to find the biggest diamonds in the rough. Might be a cool thing to keep track of.

    What team/s do you expect to be long-term powers?
    The Irish are on the upswing fellas. Texas definitely. Assuming everybody will maintain strong teams though.

    Who do you expect to be your biggest user rival and why(other than the dude in your conference, that's too easy)?
    I answer Texas for everything else, might as well shoot for them.

    Any other predictions or items you'd like to discuss?
    I predict at least 1 user to break a controller over an annoying glitch or bad play happening while playing in this dynasty.

    I'd say Texas is certainly one of the favorites, they just seem to be absolutely loaded with talent.

    What teams look like dark horses to overachieve?

    It's tough for me to pick a dark horse just yet, but I would name Notre Dame definitely as a dark horse. I would not have expected such all-around talent from them, based on previous years performances. This could be the year that the Irish are relevant once again in the college football world.

    What's your prediction for your final record and ranking?

    I believe that we'll go 9-3. Non-conference games are going to be the biggest wildcard. We've got a lot of talent up front, but our weak spot is definitely on defense.

    Who is your pick for the Heisman?

    I'm also going to call RB Malcolm Brown from Texas my favorite for Heisman. Texas seems to be earning a lot of preseason respect and if that respect is going to translate into wins, it's going to be on the shoulders of Brown.

    Who is going to win the mythical recruiting national championship?

    I'm going to say that Texas will bring in the top recruiting class, based on available recruit talent and team performance.

    What team/s do you expect to be long-term powers?

    I believe that we have some incredibly talented young guys on the roster that will help in keeping the Cardinal relevant over the next 5 years. I expect Texas to remain a very solid power through great recruiting, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the team I think that will surprise a lot of folks is Louisville.

    Who do you expect to be your biggest user rival and why(other than the dude in your conference, that's too easy)?

    I think my biggest user rival will end up being schreck822 and Notre Dame. I am predicting some really solid football to be played as we do battle for the Legends trophy.

    Any other predictions or items you'd like to discuss?

    I'm eager to see what Virginia can put together in the upcoming years. I like Virginia to make a BCS bowl in year 3. I'm looking forward to some great football this year, good luck to everyone!

    Michigan, denard is a beast.
    What teams look like dark horses to overachieve?
    UAB will have a winning season.
    What's your prediction for your final record and ranking?
    I think I'll end up 10-2, with user games being close for the most part.
    Who is your pick for the Heisman?
    I will have to go with denard Robinson. He is a dual threat qb that I think will be unstoppable.
    Who is going to win the mythical recruiting national championship?
    Texas, always recruits well.
    What team/s do you expect to be long-term powers?
    I will have to say Michigan and Michigan state. Both teams always recruit well and I believe will continue to.
    Who do you expect to be your biggest user rival and why(other than the dude in your conference, that's too easy) Wick, he seems like a great player and I look forward to some games with him.

    Any other predictions or items you'd like to discuss? The SEC will not dominate the championship title like it has in RL.

    That will do it for now, have fun with your responses and I'm looking forward to the start of a great new league.

    I played as Georgia last year when they started off the year unranked, because I knew they were going to be a good team. People aren't going to underestimate them this year though, everyone knows lol.
