    South Carolina Gamecocks Year Five Preview
    To be blunt, we have to start winning championships. We had a good season in my first year at SC last year, finishing 13-1 and winning the Sugar Bowl. Regardless, there are no conference or national championships in South Carolina football history. It's unacceptable, and it has to change. Simply playing for titles isn't enough; we need to win them and win them annually. Much of our team returns, including a very potent offensive attack. We have a top ten recruiting class coming in, and this year's efforts on the trail look to be even more promising. Regardless, we have to win the big game. We beat seven user-controlled teams last year, but we lost the one that mattered most to the National Champs. Hopefully, this is the year we take the final step towards national prominence.​

    This year is a transition year. We've lost 8 guys on defense, and our leader, QB Devin Gardner, 2nd in heisman race, has graduated. RS JR QB Micheal Rodgers takes over leading the Wolverines. ​
    Across the board on offense the wolverines have speed, speed, speed, and more speed. Rodgers has good top end speed(91), and a good arm(87/87). Michigan expects to lean heavily on SR HB Micheal Schneider (97 Speed) and RS SR HB Thomas Rawls(91 speed). We've added some more power elements to our game and will look to utilize them this season. On the outside, 6'5" Darrick Richard (97 SPD), Optimus Prime 6'7" (Formerly Dorsey) has a top end of 95 Speed. We're very solid along the OL, and have great depth at TE.​
    On defense, we have to replace 8 starters. Countess and Roland left the wolverines a year early. Stepping up in their place are a lot of guys who are good, and have been waiting their turn to get a chance to dominate. RS SR CB Greg Brown will lead this defense. He'll have his hands full trying to cover the #1 WR's on other teams. TR FR Joe Little will get some time rotating in as the 4th corner, and former #1 CB Vincent Rutledge steps into the line up with the departure of Countess. ​
    This will be michigans fastest team, but, we have a lot of new players. Replacing Roland will be tough. He was 6'5" 97 SPD with great coverage skills. To make up for it, we've moved former FS Bobby Lumpkin down to SS. He has good speed, and can get off blocks. Moving into Lumpkins place is Gavin Broussards (6'4" 98 Speed). ​
    Our goals are to win the B1G Championship and see where the chips fall. New blood has moved into the B1G with Iowa being switched back to our division and Coach Hal taking over the Buckeyes. Recruiting in Ohio has officially got much harder. ​
    OOC We welcome the LSU Tigers, ND Fighting Irish, Tenn Volunteers to the big house.​
    We'll be traveling to the dump of a stadium in nowhere alabama to take on the Auburn Cubs.​

    We look to continue winning and playing solid football.
    This team is well balanced and loaded with talent.
    Offense
    Frazier will lead at QB and Blakely will be our main back but will see less work than the RB's have seen in the past years, because we are moving to more of a passing team. Wr's are strong and the Oline is very deep and talented.
    Defense
    the DLine anchored by Write and Blackson
    Line backers are lead by Garrett
    the DB's are not lead by anyone they are all leaders but look for Florence and Jenkins to shine.
    Our goal is to repeat but we know how hard that is in this league,
    that's still the goal.

    2015-2016 Iowa Hawkeyes
    [​IMG]
    Last season didn't go exactly as the Hawkeyes had planned, with 5 Freshman starters on Defense, a new Quarterback, and a new Offense, the Iowa had its struggles, but definitely showed its potential. Now, with Junior Quarterback Jeremy Gardner having gained experience, and a solid crew of backs and receivers, the Hawkeyes are looking for big things come this season. On the Defensive side of the ball, the Hawkeyes return nearly the entire startling crew who looks to improve upon their dismal showing last season.
    Schedule:
    Week 1 vs. #3 Oregon
    Week 2 at Alabama
    Week 3 vs. Iowa State
    Week 4 at Indiana
    Week 5 vs. #14 Ohio State
    Week 6 BYE
    Week 7 at Purdue
    Week 8 vs. Northwestern
    Week 9 at #14 Notre Dame
    Week 10 at Minnesota
    Week 11 vs. #2 Michigan
    Week 12 vs. #18 Nebraska
    Week 13 at #17 Michigan State
    Week 14 BYE
    Week 15 BYE
    With 6 games against Top 25 opponents, the Hawkeyes definitely have their work cut out for them. Big games to start the season against Oregon at Kinnick Stadium and at Alabama will set the tone for the Hawkeyes.

    2015-16 Oregon Football Preview
    This year the Ducks welcome a new coach to campus. Coach Sabo will be taking over the reigns at Oregon following the departure of their exiting coach. Coach Sabo looks forward to bringing what he learned as the head coach of his alma mater Arkansas and being a coach in the powerful SEC to the Ducks.
    On offense the Ducks will be running a wide open partial no huddle offense. With the speed the Ducks have on the roster this could be a very potent plan. The Ducks will be lead by Sr Qb Lamar Francis. Francis is a speedy and talented quarterback that will take the reigns as team captain this year. The ground game will be lead by a two back front Tre Carson and Andrew Cade will be giving the Ducks legs on the ground. The receiving core for the Ducks will also look to spread out defenses and race away from the oposition.
    On the defensive side of the ball the Ducks will be running a multi faced defense. With a variety of formations the Ducks will look to confuse the opposing offenses. Coach Sabo will be bringing his own defensive staff to implement his defensive scheme.
    While the Duck faithful are skeptical on the hire of Coach Sabo after seeing his resume from the SEC , Coach Sabo was quoted as saying
    "As the new coach of Oregon I want to assure the Duck team and fans that we as a team will not let you down. Win or Lose we will have our game faces on every week and we will leave it all on the field".

    After the 3 straight trips to the SEC Championship game the were knocked off the top of the SEC East last year by an up and coming South Carolina team. Tennessee looks to get back to the title game and for the first time under Coach Chaotic, hopefully the NC game. The Vols lost a lot of senior leadership from a year ago but also brought in the most talented recruiting class in Chaotic's tenure. Look for a more explosive and balanced offensive game plan this time around as Soph QB Brad Thibodeaux has spent most of the offseason improving his passing skills to go with his incredible athletic ability. On the defensive side of the ball Tennessee will look to get more speed onto the field and will utilize their depth in the secondary to help accomplish that.

    Bruins have a lot work to ahead as they seek redemption for a 6-7 season last year, Bruins are loaded with yound talent and how that talent matures will be the key in Westwood. With only 8 seniors on the total roster the Bruins will look to them for leadership, All American QB Brett Hundley looks to bounce back from and off year, with all his weapons on the outside returning. Key newcomers include highly rated HB Geoff Jones and CB Andy Miles, HB Erik Murray is a player to watch, as Coach Maij has not had a player with his speed since the departure of WR Randall Carroll three years ago.

    The Crimson Tide are looking to rebound from a awful 6-7 season last year which was capped off with a disappointing 30-29 loss to Georgia Tech in the Chick-fil-a Bowl. The Crimson Tide plan to return to their roots and rebuild this proud program back to the standards it deserves.

    The Florida Gators are expected to improve on last years record of 4-8. Players expected to be major contributors this year are QB Jacoby Brissett, WR Ja Juan Story will replace Quinton Dunbar and RB Dave Butler is expected to get the bulk of the carries.
    On Defense look for DT Kurt Quinn to have a great year, along with CB Louchiez Purifoy and RE Shawn Palmer.

    Florida's Schedule this year is as follows:

    @UCLA
    Miami
    Texas A & M
    @Tennessee
    @Kentucky
    @Alabama
    LSU

    Notre Dame is coming off a sugar bowl appearance and finished the season 11-2. We are bringing back 9 of 11 starters on defense and everyone on offense but an added bonus with highly touted freshman QB John Campell. We are trying continue where we left off last season only this time we will be much smarter and prepared for the long road that awaits us.
