It's that time again 👍.  Still my second favorite sport to follow and watch, it seems summer is just getting started when their off and Saturday plans have a new wrinkle.

Anyone know why we have a "week 0"?  Maybe they just like ending the regular season on an even number 🤔. Week 1 includes games on Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun, & Monday... that should certainly fill everyone's tank.  Boise State vs. Florida State is of particular interest (torn here because I like both).  And of course Monday nights Notre Dame vs. Louisville.

Depending on which poll you prefer, early predictions have the orange tigers repeating with the remaining top 10 spots filled with teams having finished strongin last seasons campaign.

What's your prediction?  Mine are:

 That ND will be challenged to stay in the top 10 😥

Also hate to say it/see it, but Washington makes the playoffs.

Lastly, the Tide hoist the crystal.

I'm just happy to see them in the mix.  I have a Nittany Lions sweatshirt in the collection... one of many teams I root for.

Way too early for this one...

Haven’t read a thing about Michigan football this year, and my stress level is 99.9% less than normal.

I’ll start watching when the CFP Rankings come out.

My way too early pick is Georgia vs OU for the marbles.

It's never too early to start thinking about 10/26/19 😉

In the BIG HOUSE. I’m really glad they renewed the rivalry. Too bad it’s only a few years.

Almost feels like I was on the bus when the Wolverines drove down to South Bend to show the Irish how to play... a few years ago, I doubt my grandfather was even a thought.

I’m a free agent fan this year. Just going to try to enjoy college football without the stress of being a Michigan fan...

Oh man, bless your heart. I couldn't even if I tried. Not looking at the summer reports and all that jazz does seem to take the ole blood pressure down quite a bit tho...

No idea who will win, but weak conferences like the pac 12, and the big 12 really put a downer on the CFP final 4. Clemson and Alabama, because let’s face it The ACC is pathetic except for Clemson. Alabama will probably lose a game, but they will back there way in when Georgia blows a big lead to Auburn. The other 2 spots are Oklahoma, and Probably a very weak Washington team. Both undefeated. Clemson vs   Washington, a blowout. And Alabama vs Oklahoma, another blowout, Alabama vs. Clemson in another one that no one really cares about. I will pick Clemson because I absolutely cannot stand Saban and the tide.

Nah. I’ll pick Boston College or WVU before I pick one of the made for TV places.

I hope Michigan has a good year, but that cannot seem to put a whole season together. It’s been that way for many years. So I don’t expect a championship year from them any time soon.

Well, since my Razorbacks only won 2 games last year, I'm not expecting a lot, but I will give @Shankster a hard time for Michigan backing out of playing the Hogs this year (or was it last year they were supposed to play?), either way, I'm sure we would've got smoked. 

Also, while I love Dabo and what he's done at Clemson, I will say it's a very rare occasion that Saban gets beat two years in a row by the same team, in fact I'd venture to say that it hasn't happened while he's been in Bama, except for maybe his first 2 years there.

WPS!!! Go Hogs!!!

I think Michigan could surprise the field.  If they can take care of week two against Army, it's a pretty favorable schedule until their first loss on 10/26.

I expect that it will be Clemson again.  Im still skeptical about the predictions for Michigan.  I dont know how they are going to be so good with no star QB, their star RB getting suspended and losing pretty much their entire defense from last year.  Michigan always seems to be overhyped though.

If nothing else, I'll be hoping to see Michigan beat Ohio State for once.

Beyond that, as a Wisconsin fan, its going to be a, "we'll see year for me."  I expect them to beat the lesser teams in the B1G, win the west and maybe steal a win from OSU/Michigan/Penn State in the B1G championship game.  I honestly have no expectations after last year but Wisconsin has a supposedly very good QB coming in (although young) and will still have the best running back in college football.  The defense is a who knows situation but I cant imagine they will be worse than they were last year because last year they were historically bad.  If Mertz is the real deal and Taylor does what Taylor does, the defense may need to do just enough to slow the other team down though, so we'll see.  Wisconsin has always been a team that runs the ball and plays great defense, so if they finally have an offense that lights up the scoreboard, they may not need the defense for most of the season.  Like I said, the homer in me wants to believe but I have no expectations.

That’s just it, they will have 4 losses or 1 loss. The problem with the 1 loss is that because of the division they play in, they won’t go to the conference championship, which means no to the final 4. There should have a been a rule set up that if you don’t win your conference championship you cannot go to the final 4 teams. That goes for any conference. It not a perfect fix, but it eliminates 2 teams from the same conference.

I understand that there is frustration with seeing 2 teams from the same conference make it to the final 4, but you've got to admit that Bama and Georgia absolutely deserved to be there 2 years ago.  That was probably one of the best Natty games we've seen in a while, with the OT and all.

Nope, because every year there is a team that “deserves” to be there, but because there are only 4 teams, someone gets left out. Auburn already beat Alabama that year which kept them out of the conference championship game.  why should Alabama have gotten another chance? As I said, it isn’t perfect, but conference champs should always go I over teams who don’t win with identical records, especially if the team doesn’t even play in the conference championship game. Alabama is the college football poster team so they will get the nod over anyone, regardless of whether it is deserved or not, unless they have 2 losses, but in the SEC there aren’t 2 teams that can beat them (maybe this season) but in years past the only team that had a chance was Georgia. I’m not saying that they aren’t good, or that they didn’t have a good season, but I have always felt if you don’t win the conference you shouldn’t get the opportunity at the national championship. Everyone has there own opinion on this, and that’s fine, this is just how I feel about it. They really need to go to some sort of playoff with 8-10 teams, by that doesn’t seem to be on the horizon any time soon.

They’ll go 10-2 again. Might sneak out a late November win, but I think it’s around a 20% chance of that happening. Probably drop the ball on Iowa or ND.

Again, I haven’t read a darn thing about them this year. Not sure if I will.

You got us in "the BIG HOUSE" this year... that's worth at least 6 points.

Should have taken the W last year. But they forgot to give the QB some Gatorade...
