2009 Pac 10 Football Predictions

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

It’s a 3 team race for the Pac 10 title in 2009. If ever there is a time to knock USC off its perch atop the conference it’s this year. The Trojans have to replace their starting QB and a boatload on defense. The window of opportunity is small though, as Pete Carroll’s USC team always manages to re-load and be among the most talented teams in the country year in and year out. Oregon and Cal are the top challengers for USC’s throne this year; read on to see if we think they have enough to get it done.


2009 ACC Football Predictions

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

The ACC is a lot like the Big East in that they lack a true national title threat, but the competition within the conference will be fierce. Now, unlike the Big East, the ACC has several teams worthy of top 25 consideration and a couple that could crack the top 10. But the real competition within the ACC will be in the middle of the pack. We are pretty set on our top 3 and bottom 3, but there are 6 teams that could finish anywhere in the 4th-9th range. Read on for our breakdown of each team.


2009 Big East Football Predictions

Thursday, June 11th, 2009


The Big East is wide open this year. We could see any of the teams we have listed 1-4 winning the conference, and it wouldn’t at all be shocking to see Cincinnati or Connecticut as well. Each team in the conference has some major questions they need to answer, but each team also has bright spots and some great potential. Teams will beat up on each other and there are no gimme games on any team’s conference slate. In the end, we think West Virginia defeats Pitt on Nov. 27th to lock up the conference crown…but be prepared for any of these teams to make a run at the top of the Big East in 2009.

Most Popular Teams in NCAA Football 10 Online

Thursday, May 28th, 2009 president Brian Kaldenberg breaks down what he thinks will be the five most used teams in NCAA Football 10 online.

  • 1. Florida – It’s even going to be tough for Seminole fans to avoid sneaking in a few games using Florida. 2008’s most dominate team in the nation returns its entire defense (yes all 11 starters) and Tim Tebow. Add the constant home run threat of Brandon James, the stable of talented backs, and Florida’s intimidating home field advantage to the mix and you’ve got what will easily be NCAA Football 10’s most heavily used team.
  • 2. Oklahoma – Bradford is going to one of the top passers in the game. The Sooners return 9 of defense, and the running back tandem of Chris Brown and DeMarco Murray will be able to wear down defenses. Many will enjoy wreaking havoc in the backfield with DT Gerald McCoy.
  • 3. Texas – A tough call between Oklahoma and Texas. Colt McCoy’s speed is what really makes Texas intriguing. Most people don’t realize how fast Colt McCoy actually is. The Longhorns will be loaded on offense with McCoy’s top target, Jordan Shipley returning. The defense lost too many in the front seven to be considered dominant, but the secondary remained in tact for the most part.
  • 4. Oklahoma St. – As you can see, the Big 12 South is looking pretty weak again this year. Outside of Florida, the Cowboys may have the second most explosive offense in college football. Dez Bryant is back at wideout, while Zac Robinson returns behind center along with running back Kendall Hunter. A total of 8 starters return to last year’s #6 offense in the nation.
  • 5. Ohio State – The Tyrelle Pryor show returns for season two. Ohio State lost Jenkins, Wells, Laurinaitis, and many others. But like most blue chip factories, the Buckeyes will reload. And Pryor will provide plenty of excitement.

That wraps up our top five most heavily used teams segment. Check back later this week for our “Top five B+ or lower teams to use in NCAA 10 online”. Agree or disagree with our comments? Well then let’s hear yours in our comments section below.
