College Football Hotties 2011 Vol 1

Back by popular demand are the College Football Hotties for 2011.  Enjoy!

The Wildcats may have been overrated this year but she is not.

The Sooners should be able to “shoulder” the load this season.  Ya, I know, that was bad but she’s worth it.

The Red Raiders are in tough competition this season but this hottie clearly stands out above the rest.

She’s keeping the faith despite that ass whooping to Oklahoma.  Keep the faith Longhorns, keep the faith.

“Hmmmm, how the f*ck do we win again?” wonders this hot Gator fan.

Wow!  I would certainly climb a mountain for that.

2011 NCAA Football Predictions

1 – OKLAHOMA – College football fans should hear Jones to Broyles quite a bit this season.  The Sooners should be one of the nation’s top offenses.  You will also hear Broyles a lot on special teams.  The Lewis boys, Ronnell and Travis will lay the smack down on the other side of the ball.  This unit forced 32 turnovers last season and should do the same this year.

2 – OREGON – The Ducks will also have a powerful offense behind QB Darron Thomas and RB LaMichael James.  They will continue to be aggressive and we’ll see if Thomas can guide this team to a title this year.  The only potential weak spot could be offensive line as they lack top caliber talent and size.  The defense is solid, quick and very deep.  CB Cliff Harris might be the best defensive back in the country.

3 – SOUTH CAROLINA – Extremely talented RB Marcus Lattimore will lead the Cock offense into battle.  WR Alshon Jeffery is also a big play stud.  However, QB Stephen Garcia will be the key to the USC success story.  If he plays and stays out of Spurrier’s doghouse, the sky is the limit for this team.  They could put up a lot of points and if they do that they will certainly be in a BCS game.

4 – BOISE STATE – The top QB just may be Kellen Moore.  He is 38-2 as a starter and now he’ll have to face a tough schedule and the loss of receiving stars Young and Pettis.  The O-Line should help as they bring back stars Porter and Byrd.  Eight starters return to one of the best squads in the country.  There schedule should also help.  After an opener against Georgia, the toughest it gets for the Broncos is TCU and Air Force, both on the blue turf of BSU.

5 – ALABAMA – The Tide would have been one of my top 2 teams if it weren’t for uncertainty at the QB position.  McCarron could be OK but behind him is a redshirt freshman.  RB Ingram is in the NFL as well but RB Richardson should be able to equal his production from a year ago.  The strength is the Tide defense which returns 9 players to last years 3rd ranked squad.

6 – STANFORD – Andrew Luck will be an NFL QB.  He may end up being a very good one as well.  Andy has a very good O-Line but he’ll need a lot of luck as he has an average WR core and a slightly above average running game behind Stepfan Taylor.  The Cardinal defense is good but did sustain losses on the D-Line.  Their linebacker core, led by Shayne Skov, is amongst the best in the country.

7 – OKLAHOMA STATE – If this team were in just about any other conference we might be talking BCS championship game.  OSU has a very tough schedule.  However QB Brandon Weeden and WR Justin Blackmon should be dynamic.  RBs Joseph Randle and Hershel Sims should also be a pleasant surprise for this team.  The defense will be inexperienced but they are faster and more aggressive than last year’s defense.

8 – LSU – QB Jordan Jefferson is a huge key to this talented group.  If he stays out of trouble and sticks to the game plan they’ll play in a BCS game.  If not they’ll be playing in December.  WR Ruben Randle and TE DeAngelo Petersen will be Jordan’s top targets.  RB Spencer Ware should be a pleasant surprise.  The defense did lose the likes of Nevis and P.Petersen to the NFL but this young group is fast and talented.

 

9 – WISCONSIN – The Badgers have a dynamic backfield in Ball and White.  They will score a lot of touchdowns and control the clock.  The defensive front 7 will be slightly inexperienced but their defensive backfield should be one of the best in the country.  LB Chris Borland, if healthy, should be one of the best backers in the conference.

10 – NOTRE DAME – It looks as if this offense belongs to QB Dayne Crist, for now.  Future star Tommy Rees is waiting in the wings.  No matter who throws the target will be future NFLer Michael Floyd.  TE Tyler Eifert should also have a huge year in this aggressive offense.  The running game is fair behind Wood and Gray.  LB Manti T’eo and S Harrison Smith lead the very talented Irish D that held teams to only 9.8 ppg in the last 4 games of last season.

11 – FLORIDA STATE – Losing QB Christian Ponder to the NFL was tough and the Seminoles ACC and BCS hopes rest on the arm of E.J. Manuel.  RB Chris Thompson will lead a talented 3-back group and WRs Reed, Haulstead and Smith are big play receivers all the way.  The FSU defense led by Mark Stoops and LBs Bradham and Smith could be one of the best in the country.

12 – NEBRASKA – The Huskers will have the best defense in their new conference.  The D has All-American hopefuls in Crick, David and Dennard.  The Huskers were 9th in the country last season have promised to air it out under new coordinator Tim Beck.  The only problem is QB Taylor Martinez might not be the guy to get it done.

13 – TCU – As usual the Frogs have a very talented team but might be just outside the Top 10 and BCS consideration.  They have 6 kids returning to a very talented defense, however they lost star QB Andy Dalton on the other side of the ball.  They will rely heavily on RBs Ed Wesley and Matt Tucker.

14 – MICHIGAN STATE – The Spartans should be right behind the Badgers and Huskers.  The offense should be very effective under the vastly underrated QB Kirk Cousins.  RB Edwin Baker and WR EJ Cunningham should be the primary playmakers of this group.

15 – FLORIDA – The Gators could go far with QB Brantley in the Weis offensive system.  However they have a difficult schedule, have to replace 7 players on defense and several players on the offensive line.  They will lose a few but we will certainly see what new head coach Will Muschamp is made of.

16 – VIRGINIA TECH – This is one of the tougher teams to figure out.  Coach Beamer just got a well-deserved extension but one of his better QBs in Tyrod Taylor is no longer there.  They will have to depend on RB David Wilson and WRs Boykin and Coale for production.  The defense is always good at VT and this should be a good group again led by LB Bruce Taylor.

17 – TEXAS A&M – The Aggies should be one of the better teams this season in the state of Texas.  The offense should be very efficient behind signal caller Ryan Tannehill.  RB Cyrus Gray could be one of the more underrated runners in the country.  The defense could ultimately be the reason this experienced team falters as they lost a couple of big play defenders, namely Von Miller.

18 – ARKANSAS – They have the talent to be a Top 10 team but lost an excellent college QB in Ryan Mallett.  QB Tyler Wilson is capable but nowhere near as talented.  In addition they had some significant losses on the offensive line.  RB Knile Davis bullying his way in-between tackles should be what keeps this Razorback offense moving.  The Arky defense is adequate and should keep them in ballgames.

19 – USC – The Trojans are in the BPD Top 20 by the hair of their chins.  QB Matt Barkley should have a very good season and connect with WR Robert Woods often.  The team has talent on the defensive side of the ball but they lack depth and did give up big points at the end of last season.  In addition they aren’t playing for anything for the second year in a row.

20 – ARIZONA – The Cats are going to be a very fun team to watch.  QB Nick Foles might put up Playstation type numbers this season against the weak Pac-12 defenses.  Benefitting from Foles skills will be WRs Criner and Buckner.  On the other side of the ball they’ve had some significant losses in the off-season.  They should do just well enough for this team to get to a decent bowl game.

21 – WEST VIRGINIA – QB Geno Smith is going to be very exciting to watch on this very fast and talented offensive unit.   Tavon Austin and Vernard Roberts are the two guys that will also make this offense go.  The defense is also very solid.  DE Bruce Irvin should be a thorn in the side of most of the Big East QBs.  The only problem with the D is they are a bit undersized.  Power backs should thrive against this unit.

22 – TEXAS – Talent is no the issue on this Longhorn team looking to regain some respect in the state of Texas.  New D-Coordinator Diaz should help make this unit more aggressive.  DE Sam Acho and LB Keenan Robinson could be the best at their position in the country.  The offense looks to be the biggest issue and the position of biggest concern is QB.

23 – IOWA – There are only nine players returning to this squad.  RB Marcus Coker looks to be the stud on this offense.  WR Marvin McNutt should also help stretch the defenses and make big plays.  QB James Vandenberg has very little game experience but has sat behind Stanzi and the hope is that some of Stanzi has rubbed off on him.  The defense is a solid unit whose strongest component is the defensive backfield.  DBs Prater and Hyde are outstanding.

24 – MISSISSIPPI STATE – The Bulldogs make the Top 25 yet again.  QB Chris Relf won’t burn up the record books but he doesn’t make many mistakes.  RB Vick Ballard will move this offense and score, a lot.  A talent defense returns 7 starters but must break in all new linebackers.  A very tough schedule of Auburn and LSU over a 5 days stretch, at Georgia and Alabama, Arkansas and Ole Miss to finish out the season mean this team has to have a lot of things go right to win more than 7 games.

25 – SOUTH FLORIDA – The Bulls should battle WVU for the Big East crown.  QB B.J. Daniels isn’t very consistent but he makes big plays.  RB Demetris Murray isn’t great but is a workhorse and will get the job done.  But the Bulls won’t win this conference on the offensive side of the ball.  A very quick and talented group will be what makes or breaks this team.  LB Sam Arrington, DeDe Lattimore and DE Ryan Giddins will make life difficult for Big East foes.  This group should force a lot of turnovers.

26-40 (Maryland, Georgia, Missouri, Illinois, NC State, BYU, Air Force, Clemson, Tennessee, UNC, Penn State, Arizona State, Auburn, Baylor, Washington)

Let the Madness Begin

It is that time of year boys and girls.  Got those thinking caps on and those brackets in.

For any sports fans, especially college sports fan, this week is a frickin blast.  It is almost a guarantee one of two seeds in the Top 5 are going to go down in days 1 and 2.  There will be a handful of buzzer beaters guaranteed to freak out thousands of pool players across the nation.

But, despite all the madness that is guaranteed to take place in the first week let’s be clear about something, Kansas is going to win.  No matter how you pick them and what upsets you come up with, KU is taking the prize.  Who do they play in the Final 4?   That remains to be seen but Pitt of Florida will be left standing.

On the other side there are just a few teams there that should emerge.  I don’t see anyone in Ohio State’s side that should knock them off.  They are too good and too deep to lose that bracket.  Syracuse or UNC could surprise, but I doubt it.  Finally, Duke’s bracket could be the toughest.  While I think they too will emerge I think SDSU, UConn, Texas or Arizona could beat them.  I still like Duke with UConn a possibility.

Final 4…KU, Pitt, Duke and OSU.  KU v. Duke and KU winning it all.  I know, all top seeds but they are the best and I don’t see anyone knocking them (except maybe Florida over Pitt) off.

Have fun playing hooky from work and enjoy the games!!!

BPD’s College Football 2010 Top 25

1 – OHIO STATE – Pryor, Nine starters return to this talented offense.  Defense isn’t great but is probably good enough to win the Big 10.

2 – ALABAMA – Same recipe as last year.  Run, run, run with Ingram and an aggressive defense.

3 – TEXAS – Losses to NFL keep this group just out of National Title reach.  Look for a more balanced attack on offense.

4 – BOISE STATE  – They have the talent to get to the big game.  A tough opening game at Virginia Tech will keep this team on the outside looking in.

5 – IOWA – The Hawkeye offense is good but lacks experience on the line.  The receivers are excellent and the defense should be Top 10.

6 – VIRGINIA TECH – For once the VT offense and not the defense will dictate just how far this team will go.  Tyrod for Heismann?  Maybe.

7 – OREGON – The Ducks have the talent to compete for a National Title.  Off-season issues with the law could mean trouble for this team.

8 – TCU – A light schedule keeps this team out of the Top 5.  Both the Horned Frog offense and defense should be in the Top 10.

9 – NEBRASKA – The Huskers won 10 games last season without an offense.  Well, now they have one and another killer defense.

10 – FLORIDA – That Gators move on without Tebow but Brantley might actually be a better passer.  The Gator game plans may change but the talent is still there.

11- WISCONSIN – The Badgers have a powerful offense led by John Clay and a good defense.  Hopes for a title hinge on mid-October wins against OSU and at Iowa.

12- OKLAHOMA – Keys for Sooner success are the development of QB Landry Jones and overall health.  Tough non-con and con schedule doesn’t help.

13 – UTAH – While the Utes defense should be tough again the inconsistent offense should keep this team outside of the Top 10.

14 – AUBURN – This is a team rise.  The Tigers have a great offensive line and should do a better job moving the ball.  Look for an aggressive Tiger D in 2010.

15 – PENN STATE – A great trio of runners led by Evan Royster should make State very tough to stop.  The defense lacks experience and will make mistakes.

16 – NORTH CAROLINA – The Tar Heel defense could be one of the best in the country.  If they get some consistency out of QB Yates, watch out.

17 – ARKANSAS – Mallett and Co. should score a lot of points this season.  The team struggled defensively in 09 but the team speed and depth have improved.

18 – MIAMI (FL) – 8 guys return to this very talented defense.  They have some consistency issues at QB and a tough non-con schedule.

19 – HOUSTON – The Cougars, behind QB Case Keenum will be one of the highest scoring offenses in the US.  Problem?  They still can’t stop the run.

20 – GEORGIA TECH – The Tech spread offense will be great again under QB Josh Nesbitt.  The real plus was adding Def. Coord. Al Groh in the off-season.

21 – WEST VIRGINIA – This team should have a good offense if it can control the football better and the defense should be solid.   Overall, down year for the East.

22 – LSU – The Tigers could be better than #22 if the offensive line improves.  The defense is good but needs consistency.

23 – GEORGIA – Hold on to the football is the Bulldogs key to success.  WR A.J. Green should be fun to watch.  New pro-style Def. Coordinator is a welcome change.

24 – USC – The Kiffen regime begins in Southern California.  The offense is led by hot and cold Matt Barkley but look for them to run a lot more.  Defense looks to be solid.

25 – FLORIDA STATE – Get ready for the Chris Ponder show.  The FSU offense will put up its best numbers in years.  The defense is rebuilding under Mark Stoops.

ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN – SOUTH CAROLINA, NOTRE DAME, PITTSBURGH, TENNESSEE, WASHINGTON, STANFORD, BYU, CONNECTICUT, CINCINNATI, ARIZONA, NAVY, TEXAS TECH, MISSOURI, MICHIGAN, MISSOURI

College Football Hotties 2009 Vol 1

College football is back and it looks to be an exciting season. I must have watched 12 hours of football that first weekend. So glad it’s back. But, better that watching it on TV is making the trip to a campus and taking it all in. It is more than just the game. It is the pre-game. It is the BBQ, beer and playing catch before the game. It is the after parties and the bar hopping. It is also about the beautiful college girls getting out there and rooting for their team. Enjoy Vol 1 of what hopes to be a several volume tribute to the hotties of college football.

NEBhotty

Things are looking good in Nebraska this year!

Oregongirls11

The Ducks might have the worst uniforms in football but the cheerleaders are near the top of the list.

p1000578

You can’t have a college post without including reps from the #1 team in the land.  Well, it doesn’t hurt that they have one of the hottest fan bases too.

Michtalent

How did those Wolverines pull it off against Notre Dame?  Was it the refs?  Was it all Forcier?  Or, was it these two talented split ends…ooops, I mean cheerleaders?

georgia-girl-12

There is plenty to cheer about Dawg fans!  You beat South Carolina to get back on the winning track.  Oh, and you also have HOT fans like her.

USFshelf

To round out Vol 1 you have to conclude with Jenn Sterger.  She has been out of school a couple of years now AND has changed her allegiance from FSU to USF but she is hot.  What else do you need?
