Early BCS Bowl Picks

Orange Bowl: Iowa vs. Georgia Tech

Prediction: Georgia Tech's offense will be a big test for Iowa. Jonathan Dwyer has a nice game but falls up short as Iowa pulls off somewhat of an upset. 

Score: Iowa 24, Georgia Tech 21

Rose Bowl: Ohio State vs. Oregon

Prediction: Oregon's offensive weapons will be too much for Ohio State to handle. The up-and-down Terrelle Pryor has a down game and Oregon D takes advantage of the opportunity.

Score: Oregon 24, Ohio State 14

Fiesta Bowl: TCU vs. Boise State

Prediction: Kellen Moore and the Boise State offense will be exploited by an aggressive TCU defense. The TCU offense led by Andy Dalton will do enough to get the job done.

Score: TCU 28, Boise State 21

Sugar Bowl: Cincinnati vs. Florida

Prediction: Tim Tebow, in his final game, won't accept a second consecutive loss. In a high scoring game that will be the most entertaining, Florida's offense will have a fun game vs. Cincinnati's weak defense.

Score: Florida 38, Cincinnati 17

National Championship Game: Alabama vs. Texas

Prediction: Alabama is the favorite and for good reason... their defense is rock solid and their offense can light up the scoreboard. They have a Heisman candidate in sophomore running back Mark Ingram. However, the Longhorns want this game badly after knowing they could've won it all last season. Colt McCoy is a Heisman candidate as well, and he's got a great target in Jordan Shipley. The Longhorns defense gets it done in the upset.

Score: Texas 23, Alabama 21

(A Few) College Football 2009-2010 Predictions

Champions: Florida Gators

Why not? They have the best player in the league in Tim Tebow, a strong defense led by guys Brandon Spikes and Carlos Dunlap, and a head coach who knows how to win in Urban Meyer. Defending champs as well.

Runner Up: Texas Longhorns

Colt McCoy will be able to rally his troops to a Big 12 Title and a spot in the championship game, but I see Florida as a better team. Texas will have a strong year though, which should include a win over the Oklahoma Sooners.

Heisman: Jahvid Best

Everyone is picking Florida and Texas to meet in the championship game, so I wanted to go out on a limb for my Heisman pick. I'm going with California running back Jahvid Best, who's combination of speed and agility make him a yardage machine. He'll rack up impressive numbers that I think will top the Big Three quarterbacks.

Heisman Voting Results:

1. Jahvid Best, RB
2. Tim Tebow, QB
3. Colt McCoy, QB

Texas Tech puts up pitiful effort against Kansas

Kansas Jayhawks logoTexas Tech Red Raiders logoPitiful performance by the Red Raiders. Coming off a big win against Texas, I expected to see the Red Raiders give us a big challenge and possibly upset us like the last meeting between us. Instead, I saw a terrible performance from the Red Raiders, and a blowout performance by Kansas that I wouldn't have finished watching if it wasn't Senior Night. They didn't even put up an effort, which was the worst part... At least Pat Knight was classy afterwards. Congrats to Bill Self and the Jayhawks. I still believe if we can get over our inconsistancy, we could get to the Final Four easily.

Go Jayhawks!
