    Ok, I know it is WAY early... but being that we are in the "off-season" and not much football left (only the Pro Bowl) I figured this would be fun. At this point we all know who has left for the NFL and most of the Signing classes have been finalized. So everyone predict who they think will be in the National Championship next season.

    I say it will be ...


    Ohio State vs. University of FLORIDA.

    I was really impressed watching OSU in their Bowl game and I really think Meyer is going to do great things with the Gators.

    Ok, everyone else lets hear your predictions.

    Yeah I wish that was the case. I just don't know if Florida will make it out of the SEC. There are going to be quite a few good ones this year.
    I agree Ohio State looked very Good!!!

    My prediction is West Virginia ( They proved alot againist Georgia and a Weak Schedule ) v.s. Ohio State.

    I was hoping to keep this somewhat realistic. Not just put your favorite team.

    Let's see...
    The University of Central Florida vs. Some Other College

    That's my bold prediction and I'm sticking to it.

    You obviously don't read many of my threads about Leak. And at least you've heard of him. :wink:

    well its just ive always heard stuff like "...Leak is a shoe in Heisman Trophy winner." or "...Leak will get better and Florida winning a NC will relfect that." and yet I never really hear about him or stuff, idk I live all the way up in Idaho so that may be a reason.

    Not trying to be a ****, just my opinion.

    No argument here. I cant wait for the season to start, I dont remember a time when people have picked ND to be in the championship game. I just hope Weis has more luck in his 2nd season than Willingham did.

    Yeah I know what you mean. Leak has alot to prove next season IMO. He has all the weapons necessary to "break out" but he has to make it happen himself. My main beef with him is his running, I know he's not a running QB and Meyer knows that, but when they need him to, he needs to be a man and stop sliding whenever someone gets within 5 yards of him.

    Actually I just went back and looked at UF's schedule. You are right it will be damn near impossible for them to come through unbeaten. IF they do, they will surely WIN the championship. That is a brutal schedule.

    I think OSU is a very good pick, however the Big10 is always a tough conference to go undefeated in..... OSU looked dominating to end the year and they are returning a lot, but they are also losing a lot. Same can be said with Penn State, PSU lost a good chunk of players, but if Vidal Hazleton signs with PSU, then PSU has a top 5 recruiting class so I think the Big10 might be up for grabs. Michigan also should be solid.

    I think WVU is a VERY good pick for the national championship game. I dont think WVU is a top 2 team in the nation, however I think they have a favorable schedule. I think OSU is a much better team than WVU, but I would give the nod to WVU because of their schedule and conference.

    I dont think any team from the SEC or ACC goes undefeated...... the conferences are just too balanced I think next year.

    Notre Dame has all its hard games early..... but they have their hardest games, PSU and Michigan, at home and a cakewalk schedule after until potentially USC. I dont think ND goes undefeated...... but because the media loves them, even at 1 loss, they are still a contender.

    Out of the Big12, I kinda like Texas also. With the exception of Vince Young, I dont think they really lost a ton to the NFL. Huff, yes, Scott, yes, but they have a good recruiting class and good players behind them. Also, I think Charles is going to have a great year at RB.

    Those are my 4/5 favorites this year.

    Doesn't look THAT bad. Toughest game will no doubt be LSU at home, but we always play them tough. Trading Miss St. for Auburn doesn't really help either but I think undefeated is possible.

    Possible yes, but damn... Bama and LSU back to back, then right after that at Auburn and then UGA. That is a ROUGH 4 game span. Not to mention that UT and FSU are both on the road this year.

    Odds are really not in the favor of the Gators.

    I agree, however i don't think Bama will be very tough this year, they lost ALOT, even with Prothro coming back. I agree LSU and Auburn will be tough. Georgia never scares me, especially with a new Qb and their losses. Tennessee has alot to prove. FSU should be decent. No doubt it will be tough, but still possible.

    I agree it is possible, but throw in South Carolina and I think of the "contending" teams. Or at least all the teams mentioned in this thread, they have the toughest schedule.
