View Full Version : NCAA Football: Contender or Pretender? Part I
09-28-2006, 05:26 AM
The NCAA Football season is in full swing, and as conference play starts and the men seperate themselves from the boys, it's time to see who will be contending for what this season, and who will just be hanging in on a prayer. It's part one of a three part series on NCAA Football: Contender or Pretender?

Great work as always Schaddy. Its great to see you out here writing again.
I agree with basically everything (is that a good or bad thing for discussion?) especially on West Virginia. I love watching these guys, just as much as everyone. Probably because I've been a Navy fan, and used to go to many games, and am a huge fan of the option. They run it so well, and with more passing than the Navy triple-option.
Their defense needs work, which is going to hold them back. They nearly lost to UGA last year in the bowl game because they couldn't stop the air attack when the Dawgs came back, and it looks like their secondary will be torched when they face a passing team. Still, they are BCS bowl bound again, just not for the championship.

Great Read Schaddy.
Im glad you have taken notice of just how good the Wolverines are and consider them NC title contenders.
The defense has really been the key. Ron English has them playing the right way and actually making tackles. Something that this defense could not do for the past two years.
Im looking forward to a game for all the marbles, if both Michigan and OSU make it to the final game undefeated, it will be one of the most hyped up matches that isnt a National Title game.

Thanks for the comments guys :D
I agree Thomas, I love watching WVU. It sounds funny to me that I'm saying how much fun they are because of all their running, being that the Badgers run it 65% of the time, too, but they do it so well and they run out of so many different sets that you never quite know what's coming next. They're great, and I wouldn't bet against them pulling off another huge win at the end of this year.
Wolv, I can't help but notice your boys; they're damn good! I'm anxiously awaiting that OSU/UofM game, it should be a classic, like all of 'em are!

Schaddy great article.
But with a freshman at QB instead of Vince Young, its pretty obvious that the Longhorns arent going to have a run at the National Championship

Well, I'm sure glad I labeled the Hokies a pretender! :lol2:
