Denard is now gone and it's time for Devin Gardner to take over. Gardner is 6'4" 209 with TRK in his 70's. He's a tank. He's got speed, THP, and falls forward with contact. This will be Gardners first year starting, but, he's got plenty of game experience with getting in when denard was down two years ago. During his RS year, he was instrumental in getting TR FR Sanders ready to play last year to relieve denard when he needed a blow. Now it's Sanders turn to take the redshirt.
We've lost a lot of experience at WR. Were starting all freshman and sophomores at the WR position. Our OL also lost some guys, but, were young and talented and MASSIVE.
LT Lewan 6'8" 304LG Bryant 6'4" 353C Jordan 6'2" 284RG Thompson 6'7" 302RT Schofield 6'7" 302
On defense were going to be lead by ROLB Cameron Gordon. He's a BEAST. 91 Speed, average of 90's Man/Zone Coverage 90's /Play Recognition/pursuit.We also have future first round pick, second year starter, Matt Roland. Roland is 6'5" 212 and with great tackling, 96 speed, good block shedding, and solid coverage schools he's ideal for playing close to the LOS causing havoc.
Overall, were VERY happy with where our team is right now. We've lost denard so we are going to need to put the ball in the air more, but, we have a LOT of speed on this team and are going to be very explosive. I can't wait to see what we can do!
Florida State looks to come out of the gate stronger than they did last year after starting last year off 0-3 and finishing 10-3 and going on to win the Orange Bowl against the Iowa Hawkeyes. The offense only loses 2 key starters in HB Chris Thompson & WR Willie Haulstead. The offense will be anchored by Soph. QB Darren Bonner and HB Devonta Freeman. The Defense has been changed up a little as it will still be a 4-3 Base but they will incorporate a 4-2-5 in there as well. The Defense was the weak spot last year for the 'Noles as they couldn't stop the run and that hampered them all season. The Seminoles have high expectations in Tallahassee but they can be spoiled early just like last season with another Murderer's Row of Out of Conference Games early in the season.
Key Losses:HB Chris Thompson, WR Willie Haulstead, DE Brandon Jenkins, MLB Vince Williams, CB Greg Reid. K Dustin Hopkins
Key Additions:QB Isaac Armstrong, WR Lance Irons, OLB Cedric Starks, CB Teddy White, CB Dave Adams

UCLA SEASON PREVIEW 2013
Coming of its first 10 win season in 15 years and first outright pac-12 title in 57 years, the Bruins look maintain success as the up and coming program in the Pac-12. A Rose Bowl beatdown by the hands of Michigan placed a damper on an otherwise successful season for Coach Maij but the Bruins now know what is needed to compete with the elite in college football.
Offensive Outlook (6 Returners)
Quarterback :RS- Soph. Brett Hundley will lead the offense after a great Freshman campaign, Coach Maij has stated that Hundley took the bowl loss the hardest, and reported to fall camp stronger and faster than last year.
Running Backs: With the graduation of All-PAC 12 HB Jonathan Franklin, UCLA will give the reigns to highly touted HB Malcom Jones. Jones saw action last year spelling Franklin, and will showed great burst and quickness for a back his size at 233lbs. Helping Jones will be speedster Jordan James who pulls double duty as WR in certain Pistol sets.
Wide Receivers: The Bruins return all their recievers from last year, leading this talented core is All-American Randall Carroll who decided to return for his senior season after flirting with the NFL. Ricky Marvray and Shaq Evans should see an increase role from last year as Carroll sees his share of double teams. Newcomer Devin Lucien will surprise some when the Bruins spread out with his quickness and agilty.
O-Line: The biggest question for the Bruins offensively will be this unit, who will start three freshman, veterans of the unit C Greg Cappalla and G Chris Ward will be anchors for a young and talented unit.
Defensive Outlook (4 Returners)
Secondary: UCLA lost a lot in the secondary with the departure of SS Dalton Hilliard, CB Sheldon Price and CB Aaron Hester, with this unit being the strength of last year's defense, 2013 will bring a lot of questions. SS Deitrich Riley will move to the Strong side of the Bruins 4-2-5 while Jr. Stan Mckay plays weak. All-American FS Tevin McDonald returns to patrol the middle with CB Brandon Sermons and Anthony Jefferson slotted on the outside.
LineBackers: The Bruin front seven last year was average at best, many times teams would just load up and run down the middle, a scheme tweak this spring hopes to help this fall. Jordan Zumwalt and Aramide Olaniyan will be the primary backers with Sr. Isiah Bowens coming in when the Bruins go heavy upfront.
D-Line: UCLA adds three new starters on the dline all pass rush specialist with bulk. DE Owamagbe Odighizuwa and Wesley Flowers will be the bookends, while RS-Sophmore Kevin McReynolds can team up with Cassuis Marsh to defend the middle.

How do you do dat??
Alabama Crimson Tide
The Crimson Tide rebounded last year from a disappointing 10-3 by going 12-1 during the regular season and won the SEC Title and faced Notre Dame for the BCS National Title. Even though the Tide came up just short of its 14 National Title overall the Crimson Tide coaching staff was pleased with the results. But a new season brings new challenges as the Tide looks to change their offensive philosophy as they look to become less one dimensional. Last year the Tide saw teams but 8 and sometimes 9 defenders in the box in an effort t stop eventual Heisman Winner Eddie Lacy. The Crimson Tide coaches do not plan to abandon the run but to become and multifaceted team that takes what the defense gives. It could be a learning year in Tuscaloosa but still the same goals are in place, win the SEC and play for the National Title..
Key Loss: Heisman Winner HB Eddie Lacy (NFL Draft), LB Donta Hightower, DB Dre Kirkpatrick
Key Returning Players: QB AJ McCarron & Phillip Sims,HB Dee Hart & Blake Sims, LB CJ Mosley, CB Dee Millner
Key Newcomers: QB Jerry Small, P Kyle Miller, LB Justin Colbert, DB Chandler Brown
Strengths: Quarterbacks and a strong stable of HB's and WR's.
Weaknesses: Youth in the Secondary and the LB's

THIS IS ALABAMA FOOTBALL
Welcome! This is your 2013 Defending National Champions
The Fighting Irish are into season looking to defend their first title in 23 years. Even though won the title last Coach Capp is as fierce as ever tearing into his team all summer so the will not become complacent. We only lost one significant starter on both sides of the ball and that was game breaking receiver Riddick. So we have team full of guys who already know what it takes to make it to the promise land.
Senior QB Tommy Rees is looking the best that he ever has after struggling the first half of season last year. I think this will be his best season by far.
Senior RB Cierre Wood skipped the pros for a second straight year in hopes of becoming a legend. Last year he carried us for the 1st half of the season and looks to continue where he left off.
Senior Wr TJ Jones did not see a lot of action last year but he is looking forward to break opeen some games with his speed on the outside.
Once again our biggest games of year and deciding factor if we repeat are at the beginning of the season.
And as always looking forward to battling you guys.
WELCOME TO THE 2013-14 ARKANSAS RAZORBACK SEASON PREVIEW
The Hogs are coming off a 10 win season and a Outback Bowl victory in 2012. Coach Sabo has promised more of these things to the Razorback Nation.
This years team is preseason picked #4 in the nation. While the Hogs seem to have the voters confidence in the early going they will have a tough road ahead of them.The overall team this year is chalked full of underclassmen and will have fresh faces at nearly every position. Although there will be many obstacles this year the Hog fans feel they have what it takes to get the job done.
The offense will once again lead a multi faced playbook that will have a job of keeping defenses on their toes. With new faces at the key positions the coaching staff has been working around the clock to get the offense ready.
On the defensive side of the ball the Hogs will show a multi playbook that will focus on the 4-3 and the 4-2-5 as a base. The Hogs have always been known for their attacking defense and this year will be no different. Although the defense is not as stacked on paper as years past Coach Sabo and his coaching staff firmly believe that this years defense could provide a spark to set the tone for the season.
Overall the Razorbacks will once again set to make a major bowl appearance and hopefully make it to the SEC Championship. However the SEC Gauntlet will prove to be the real test. As always the SEC is a stacked conference loaded with teams who could take you out on a weekly basis.
2013-2014 Iowa Hawkeyes Season Preview2012-2013 Record : 10-3
The Hawkeyes are coming off a solid season as Coach E's second year at the helm came to a close. A 10 win season, with some big wins have fans in Iowa City really looking forward to the upcoming season. Coming in ranked #13 in the country, it is obvious that the experts see something in the Hawkeyes, however with their leading passer, rusher, and receiver from last year all gone to the NFL, this means that some young guns will need to step up and play big for the Hawkeyes.
Offense: At quarterback, transfer Ashton Glaser will get the nod as the starting quarterback for the Hawkeyes. With only 1 year left of eligibility, Glaser is looking to do big things for the Hawkeyes, a la Russell Wilson. In the backfield, the Hawkeyes are extremely deep, but De'Andre Johnson, a Junior out of Miami Florida will get the majority of the touches. Finally, a young group of speedy receivers lead by 6'7" Mark Barnes will look to wreak havoc on opposing secondaries.
Defense: Senior MLB James Morris will look to lead the Hawkeye Defense for the second straight year, a group which improved dramatically from the year prior. However, a very young secondary could be the one downfall to this group, with 4 true Freshman that could see some time at one point or another during the year.

Just a reminder:
The Gators are coming off a very disappointing 4-8 record last year that cost their coach his job. John Crow is taking over at Florida and looks to inspire some life into this team. Florida has one of the SEC's most experienced offensive and defensive lines. The offense is led by potential All American Jonotthan Harrison at center and another potential All American Jon Halapio at RG. Expect these guys to make room for Mack Brown the RB to bust some big runs behind these guys blocking.
The defense is led by potential All American Jelani Jenkins at ROLB. Bookends Sharriff Floyd and Ronald Powell should but plenty of pressure on the opposing QB's to help create turnovers. This Florida team is a very talented group that may make a run for the SEC east title and possibly the SEC Championship.
From the recent recruiting class look for LOLB Reggie Lake to see plenty of playing time as a true freshman.
-Players to Watch-
JaWuan James will anchor a very experienced offensive line for the Vols and is surely a 1st rounder next year with the prototypical NFL size.
Lane will be the go to guy on the ground, as well as the mentor for the younger skill positions, both at RB and the newcomer at QB Thibodeaux.
Thibodeaux battle senior AA Tyler Bray for the starting spot in the spring and has all but secured it with his off the chart athleticism.
The weak spot for the Vols will once again be on the defensive side of the ball. Brewer will be expected to play major role in both run stopping and pass coverage.
