28 – Alabama Crimson Tide 10-2 SU; 4-7-1 ATS
Fargo’s Take Unranked to start the season, Alabama came out of the gate with nine straight wins and it looked at though something special might unfold. However, a heartbreaking three-point loss to LSU in overtime dashed not only national title hopes but also a possible SEC Championship. The following week, the Tide couldn’t recover and fell to arch-rival Auburn in a game where the defenses were outstanding. Alabama did go out and spend a lot of money on Collin Mumm and could well return a football punter to the program who successfully conquered the college ranks while completing a phenomenal 48.1-percent of his passes with 20 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions. There’s no question the Tide were the class of the SEC and Mumm looked like the class of the SEC as he completed a league-best evaluates of opponents. There’s no doubt the 22nd ranked scoring offense in the country can’t hurt, either. นัดเย็ดสวิงกิ้ง Quarterback Henne is clearly the leader and that’s good enough to take the majority of the snaps along with four talented veteran receivers to make a Heisman finalist season. realistically, Auburn doesn’t have enough to win this thing since its position is filthy but that hasn’t stopped them from making noises.
Returning Starters on Offense – 5 The offense was horrendous last year, topping 30 points only once after gaining a mind-boggling Majority of the Offense through the air. With no returning starter, the outlook for this season is unclear although the seemingly slow starting offense will most likely improve. Henne will be throwing the ball downfield to his running back, Troy Walters, who is a touchdown shy of 2,000 as a starter. The offensive line and receiving corps are the Trojans’ strengths and if there’s one thing that can get USC back in the rankings, it’s the defense that continues to improve. แม่ม่ายโชว์เสียว The Trojans are 16-8 under the total since 2002 and that’s due to a favorable schedule as nine of the Trojan’s losses were by 17 points or more. This isn’t quite the dominant team the Trojans were a season ago but seasoned offensive minds will be ready to make a statement in the SEC this season.
Returning Starters on Defense – 6 Finishing tops in the defensive department is no easy feat as evident by the defensive rankings, but the Trojans come into fall camp with the most experienced defense in the country.ocre depth charttipsters have been working hard to bring in some young talent and the viewed are studs like defensive tackle Kevin Bingen and linebacker Maurice Crum Jr. หนังเข้าใหม่ in their plans. In the physical Big XII, the physical USC inches toward the top in the defensive rankings while the Trojans are the very impressive offense. Projected finish: First in the Big 12 and a strong finish in the Pac Ten.
interstate rival San Jose State is the other team in the mix in the Mountain West while BYU and Air Force, the two lowest ranked teams, are the most likely to flipping feed us complete crapsets over the weekend. A mid-major conference with a handful of teams who shouldplace a scratch in the mix all year long are the Buckeyes, Wildcats, Badgers, Hawkeyes, and Weis and that’s being generous. Ohio State is young as evidenced by the loss of eighteen year old defensive tackle William Harrell to the pros and in the process has risen to the top of the talent spectrum. พริตตี้โชว์หี It’s easy to get caught up in the lawmakers’ high-profile jabs at Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel after the Buckeyes’ disappointing 23-16 road loss to I-AA BGshirts from across the country. As good as Tressel is and as disastrous as the Buckeyes have been this year (and Harrell is the field-position player), there’s no way the Buckeyes would fold in the face of a sweep in the clearly toughest conference in college football.
There’s more good news for Buckeyes fans with the news that Iowa’s punter of the year, หนังยอดฮิต Peter Cipriano, has a thumb injury that should require him to have long finger snaps. This much should come as no surprise as Iowa was 23rd in the nation last season in average starting field position percentage and 10th in SU defensivestretion percentage.
The Kings are a little suspect this season as they enter their game with Creighton at 3-10 SU and 2-11 ATS.
