We're back Haha. Computer to myself too (fucking finally is all i can say). Preseason: 1) SMU ( jello1717 ): SMU was one win from returning to the National Title for a second straight season. Baylor surprised this team as they had beat them pretty soundly the first time they meet. SMU rebounded and got themselves a BCS Bowl win as a solid consolation prize. This team was scary last season. You're telling me All-Stars Brad Simmons, Isaac Richardson, and Tommy Freeman return on offense? This team is legit. Let's see if they can bottle that anger they had after the Big XII Championship game and use it to propel themselves into the a National Championship? We'll have to wait and see. 2) Florida St ( Big Suge Knight ): The Seminoles bowed out last season. No question. They had their fate in the palm of their hands and a loss to Maryland was not expected, especially after those same Terps has lost their Coach, lost the week before to Wake Forest, and were seemingly in disarray. Florida St has a lot of potential (which we seem to say every year) and they MUST capitalize. This team is a well of talent yet year in and year out, they let you down. Maybe this year is the year. Jameis Winston is back, a stable of HBs, great O-line, and a solid defense to boot. This team must win now. 3) Virginia ( dakota7 ): UVA has a pretty solid team. The loss of their starting QB hurts a lot. That dude was a baller. Also they have a pretty young line which will hurt the new starter Jeff Henderson. But UVA is known to lean on the run game and Deon Taylor looks to be an absolute stud. And with the good running game potential, comes the potential for their great defense to help carry this team to the National Title for the 3rd straight year. But will they be able to get over the proverbial hump and win one? 4) BYU ( UofCWildcat ): BYU was not in sync last season. Tanner Mangum was chucking up balls into triple coverage like his Role Model Brett Favre. Tanner decided the NFL is too mainstream for him and wanted to come back to BYU for some more sexless nights, Ben Rodgers looks to be the new WR at WR-U, Nolan Palmer is a man among at times, and the defense returns a lot of studs (including Butch Pauu). This team is loaded and should win the North. But BYU SHOULD do a lot of things and don't. 5) Baylor ( blLL flo ): This team isn't good on paper. No where near where they should be. But there is one key fact to why we have them at 5: His name is Bill "Fucking" Flo. This Coach is amazing. On the same vain as Jello. He can make a talent-less team win a National Title. Hell, Nick Skinner won a National Title, Heisman, and Big XII Championship in his freshman year. He is the X-Factor for these Baylor Bears. And guess what: They're better than they were last season. Scary. 6) Miami ( mcyork ): Miami isn't the U of old. But a lover of the City, the School, and the Tradition at Miami will bring it back. I have faith in an alum the likes of Coach Mcyork. He's got them going in the right direction already. They have tough competition though in the ACC with FSU and UVA being as good as they are. But he has a shot to be on their level in the next few years. Just not this year. 7) Georgia Tech ( aarondramp ): The Yellow Jackets are better than you'd think. Don't let the reigning Oopsman Award winner Ben Rodgers fool you. But what is alarming is Snoody being gone. That speed helped in a lot of places. But fortunately for them, there is another! Jeremy Richard looks to be the new Snoody with his blazing speed. Depth is a question on the line and the Ben-Factor is scary. Don't see them winning their division, but they'll put the pressure on for sure. 8) Kansas St ( Masler ): Did i say FSU had a stable? Because Kansas St took this to a new level. Three guys look to get some carries and help Masler with his good run game. Why the low ranking then? A few 60's on the O-line WILL NOT help that effort. With some of the good Defensive Lines in their own division (the likes of BYU for example) will obliterate those tackles play in and play out. A weak LB crew won't help either. The only hope for Kansas St is to fine a way to run and slow games down. Fortunately, this is the style for the Wildcats. 9) TCU ( Darkwing ): On Paper, one of the top teams in the Big XII. The only problem is, they are the definition of underachievers. This team had a good Season 3 but Season 4 was kind of lack luster. TCU needs to OVER achieve this season if they want to compete with SMU, because that team is something fierce compared to these Horned Frogs. 10) North Carolina St ( IrishBearcat ): 4th new coach in 4 seasons for the Wolf Pack. A lot of parody for this team but maybe Coach IB can bring some stability to this program. They have a pretty solid team together but IB will need to get his footing quick as the ACC is a VERY strong conference. Let's see what the newbie can do. 11) Houston ( niuhuskie224 ): Houston is just behind the 8-ball. Maybe they can get a few solid wins and maybe get 8 wins and bring this team back. It'll take a few years but they CAN come back from a horrid roster like they have this season. No need to lose faith because it could be worse. Keeping the faith and trusting the plan will be a must for the Cougars to get back to their Season 1 Big XII Championship ways.
