We're gonna start off with a small preview of each teams schedule...corresponding with their opening rank. The first number is each teams opening rank....not my ranking. 1. The defending national champs will have their work cut out for them. Not only are they replacing several starters but in general this is a fairly young team. The schedule is not for the weak of heart either. Notable Games: Wk 3 @ LSU , Wk 4 @UNC, Wk 6 vs. Bama, Wk 9 @ PSU, possible B1G title game. Prediction: 9-4, B1G runner up. The 3 game stretch between wk3-wk6 will be too much to handle. They'll drop two of those games, and will lose a cpu game. They'll beat PSU and will get into the B1G title game, but won't make it any farther than that. Brave won't complain 1 bit. He'll be content to pocket his Season 3 title, chalk this up to a rebuilding year, and will come back strong next season. 2. Last years biggest under acheivers will come back this season with fire in their belly.....after fucking up what might have been a golden opportunity to win their first NC under my dumb ass, this team comes back with alot of tools and a ranking that makes their destiny their own to control. Notable Games: Wk 3 vs. OSU, Wk 5 @ UGA, Wk 7 @ UF, Wk 11 Bama Prediction: 12-1 SEC Champs. Why? Because it's my poll! We will drop either the game @ UGA or @ UF but will beat OSU, and Bama, and then will win the SEC title game vs. the winner of the world's largest cock party (yes that's what I mean!) The #2 ranking will mean after my loss in either wk5 or 7 I'll drop to 10th ish and will have 2 months to work my way back up to #2. Having the final SEC title game vs. a supposed top 5 team will elevate me into one of the top 2 spots. 4. Twist had some big wins last year, but this year may be even better. This team is set up to run, run, run, and when their done, run some more. They are deep at HB and the O line looks great. They get big games between the Hedges. Notable Games: Wk 5 v. LSU , wk 9 @ Clemson, wk 10 v. UF, wk 13 v. UNC Prediction: 10-3 SEC Runner Up. Having 3 big games at home or at neutral sites is really going to help UGA. They will be tough to beat due to their ball control style and personnel. They beat LSU wk 5 but lose @ Clemson in a stunner, but turn around the next week and beat UF. They also lose a head scratcher vs. some cpu team but with the strength of the Florida win they move on to a rematch of the Season 2 SEC title game vs. LSU. This time it's not as close. LSU wins the SEC title game big, but Georgia winds up in a good bowl, and might be the odds on favorite to win it all Season 5. 5. SA's run of conference titles and nc game appearances might be in jeopardy. With the improving SEC teams right on their back things might not go as planned. Florida is very good, but so is the rest of their competition. The SEC is head and shoulders the best conference in the country with 3 legit NC contenders and 3/5 of the top 5 to start the season. Notable Games: wk 3 @ VT, wk 7 v. LSU, wk 9 v. Maryland, wk 10 v. UGA (in Jacksonville) Prediction: 10-2. Gonna be a decent year. I predict a close win in Blacksburg wk 3 and the wheels will fall of from there. 4 weeks later LSU comes to town and wins a fist fight in the Swamp, they beat UMD, but lose the Cocktail Party to Georgia. With that loss they finish in the teens and in a pre Jan 1st Bowl Game. However the good news is that Mack Brown breaks the NCAA rushing record for a single season and wins the Heisman. UF will be flush with individual awards by the end of the year. 6. Another season, and another V Tech team that will be prepared and well coached. This version of the Hokies however don't have the talent they've had the last few years, and there will be a new ACC Champ this year. Notable Games: wk 3 vs. UF, wk 6 @ Nebraska, wk 11 @ Maryland, wk 12 @ UNC Prediction: 10-3. ACC Runner up. This will be a good year. They'll lose a close game vs. UF early on but will move themselves back into contention by winning a huge road game in Lincoln. However the real thorn in their side will be a much improved Terps team. They will go to College Park and lose wk 11 but will beat UNC week 12. They'll go to the ACC title game, but will lose to Maryland again! They'll finish 10-3, have a tough recruiting season, and will end up in a bowl game that is way below Hokie's standards. This will cause Vt to come back live and direct in Season 5. 9. Sparty has their highest preseason ranking in quite some time. They will start in the top 10 and will be a real factor all season. The B1G schedule is favorable. This will be Jman's greatest season since his Tulsa days. Notable Games: wk 2 v. Clemson, wk 4 @Bama, wk 5 v. PSU, wk 13 v. Nebraska Prediction: 12-1 B1G Champ. The schedule really sets up well for them. They'll win wk 2 vs. Clemson, but will drop a game in Tuscaloosa to Perry. However they'll come back from that loss and win 10 straight. After a big win vs. division foe Nebraska, Sparty will secure 1 spot in B1G title game vs. OSU whom they don't play in the regular season. They'll win that game, and secure themselves one spot in the NC game....vs. old nemesis BDSDIGITAL for what is to be the #1 Trifecta game of the release so far! 13. UNC isn't very deep. They have some good players, but they will be hard pressed to compete in a tough ACC. Not this year. Or next year. Watch for UNC to make a move in Season 6. Notable Games: wk 4 vs. OSU, wk 10 @ Bama, wk 12 v. VT, wk 13 @ UGA Prediction: 7-5. This is gonna be tough. They lose big to OSU in week 4 and suffer some injuries. This is not a incredibly deep team and it's going to catch up to them. After that they will lose to Bama, Vt and UGA. Some of these losses will be by a lot. However, they'll have a great season in recruiting and will finish the season with a great outlook for next year. This schedule is going to be very difficult. All users they play are legit. 14. Maryland is poised for a dream season. This team is Sr and JR laden, has good personnel and a good user. They'll win some big games, but will fall just short of the NC game....this year. Notable Games: wk 2 @ PSU, wk 9 @ UF, wk 10 @ Clemson, wk 11 vs. Vtech Prediction: 12-1 ACC Champs. Like I said, it will be a dream season. They'll start off with a tough win vs. Penn St and from there will cruise until week 9. Florida will flex their SEC muscle and give Maryland their first loss...and only loss of the season. They'll register a solid win vs. Clemson and will beat V Tech to announce their arrival on the big stage. They'll make it to the ACC title game and will win the V Tech rematch. Unfortunately for them, they'll lose the Florida game a few weeks too late, and will finish #3 in the country behind MSU, and LSU. They'll make it to the Orange Bowl and win it. Gangsta with this season, will announce his arrival to the Trifecta. Watch the hell out in season 5. 15. Oh the turmoil. Beazus is seemingly gone. We don't know who's gonna be running the Huskers. On that note, I can not give a prediction persay. What I will say is that they will lose a few conference games, will not be relevant on the national stage this year. But will be back in full force season 5. I would like to give a big shout out to vBIG SLICKv for his help today! 16. Clemson is going to have one of his better years as well. His schedule sets him up fairly well. He won't win the conference this year, but will get better each week and will have an up and down season. This is a solid team. They won't be flashy, they won't be too exciting, but they'll be in almost every game they play. Notable Games: wk 2 @ MSU , wk 8 UGA, wk 9 UMD, Prediction: 10-2. The loss to MSU will drop them to the edge of the top 25. However they'll go off from there. Big wins vs. highly ranked cpu teams will help. They'll win a huge home game vs. a top 10 UGA team! But then will lose a game big to Maryland. They'll finish up 10-2 but out of the ACC title game. They'll finish in the top 12 and will just miss out on a BCS game. It'll be up and down, it'll be tough and easy, but at the end of the season aarondramp will tell anyone that will listen that he had his funnest season ever in season 4. This team will be energized for a big run in season 5, in a much improved ACC. He'll be a player. 18. What a terrible year last year. Not only did they get beaten like a drum by almost all users, but my offensively challenged ass dropped 50 on them. They'll be better, but not good enough. Notable Games: wk 4 v. MSU, wk 6 @ OSU, wk 10 v. UNC, wk 11 @ LSU Prediction: 10-2. With wins over 2 top 10 teams to start the season (MSU, Wisconsin) they'll shoot into the top 10 and the excitement will build in Tuscaloosa. However a close loss to OSU will squelch some of the enthusiasm. Getting man handled in Death Valley wk 11 will take all of the wind out of their sails. This year will be a major disappointment, but next year they'll be one of the favorites to win the whole thing. They have some young ball playing mother fuckers on that team. 24. Fuzzyl0gic is not new. He's been around for a while in other leagues. Anyone that thinks this is going to be a walk over is wrong. However.....he hasn't faced all that the Trifecta has to offer. They'll get a crash course in this league, but will be better for it long term. Notable Games: wk 2 v. Maryland, wk 5 @ MSU, wk 9 v. OSU, wk 10 @ Nebraska Prediction: 8-4. Things won't start well. I predict a bad loss to Maryland and a close loss to MSU. They'll go into the OSU game with a severe limp and Brave will knock PSU clean on their arse. The week after they'll win a big game vs. Nebraska, but will finish out of the B1G running. They'll have a much better season next year, but I can't see them competing this year. They'll finish inside the top 25 but barely. National Championship Game: #1 Michigan State v. #2 LSU Jman will come into this game the favorite. With his success vs me in the past he'll be riding a wave of confidence. However....this ain't the same old Castortroy4206. LSU will play one of the best games of the season and will win the National Title by 10 points. MSU will hang tough and will grind...but in the end the LSU front 7 will be too much for the MSU running game. LSU 17- MSU 7 and LSU follows Brave's season 3 example and wins their first Trifecta title! feel free to debate what you want. I'll be back in 4 weeks to give everyone an update!
