Kortney Shane’s College Football Preview: Week 1


 

Who Will Rise To The Occasion

Let’s begin…

    Man it fells good to be a sports fan right about now. Why you ask? Just check out the title of this post. I’ll give you a couple second, because some of my readers are remedial. It’s time for college football. The football season will open up this Thursday with great games this Saturday starring TCU, LSU, and Oregon State. This Labor Day however is the game of the week. Make no mistake about it; this game will end all National Title hopes for the team that loses this game. The game I’m referring to is Boise State v. Virginia Tech. The hype surrounding this game will be met in full. I believe that both teams will be ready to play, and there will be a Championship atmosphere. This, my friend is Boise Sate and Virginia Tech’s shot to practically guarantee themselves a National Championship bid. You can’t ask for anything more in the opening week of a season.

Breakdown

This is what you need to know. Virginia Tech just has better players than Boise Sate. They have a underrated quarterback, a good defense, and a fantastic coach. This will also practically be a home game for Tech. You may say, “There playing in D.C. that’s not Virginia.” And after you told me that I would tell you, “To check out a map. Find D.C. then find Virginia…now agree with me that it’s a home game.” Only way Tech fans don’t show up. Is if in a weird way the channel the energy of Tampa Bay Rays fans, and are secretly trying to get rid of the team.

With that being said, Virginia Tech always starts slow at the beginning of the season. Also Boise Sate has proved in the past that they can beat teams better than them on any given day. So, I don’t think that Boise State is scared by any Stretch of the imagination. I actually think that Boise Sate fans are more confident than Virginia Tech’s. I absolutely love the Broncos‘ receiving core, Quarterback, and coach. I wish I liked their smurf turf, but it makes them look like a dope. I think if you want to be taken seriously, you have to stop panting you field weird colors.

I think this game comes down to talent and coaching. While I think that Boise Sate has the coaching, they just don’t have the players. I also think if the game gets close, the environment will eat them alive. It’s easier to beat a team when you’re an underdog, because no one is expecting you to win. However, you’re Boise State, #3 in the Nation; you could make history and win the National title. This is the first time you’re supposed to win the big game.

I don’t think you can do it. Virginia Tech wins, 27 – 14

“Boise Sate welcome to the big boys table. Now go get us some coffee.”

Kortney Shane’s College Football Preview


 

Could This Be a Down Year For the BCS?

Let’s begin…

    This year throughout the college football season, I will be previewing each week of college football, while paying special attention to “My Game of the Week.” This means I will not be focusing on D-3, D-2, D-1AA, Tulsa, Vermont, or any Conference USA football. I will analyze and predict football games each week.

So, that’s what I will be doing. I hope you all enjoy, and as also comment and let me know what you think.

        Now let’s get to the preview.

The Top Ten according to me.

  1. Alabama
  2. Ohio State
  3. Texas
  4. Virginia Tech
  5. Florida
  6. Oklahoma
  7. Boise State
  8. Miami
  9. Iowa
  10. TCU

     

Also receiving votes: LSU, Washington, Stanford, UConn, Wisconsin, Pittsburg, Arkansas, and No one from Conference USA. USC received no votes, but…Reggie Bush is still receiving money. I think that this year will be somewhat of a down year for college football. There will be many teams that will have to opportunity to make it to a B.C.S. Bowl game. Don’t be surprised if both TCU, Boise State, and Washington, make it into the B.C.S. With that being said, I think there are 3 teams that could possibly win the championship.

Conference Previews From East to West

                Big East: I’m going to pick the USF Bulls to finish first. I love their coach, I like their location (Florida schools can ball. I don’t know if you’ve noticed), and that’s the worst B.C.S. Conference.

ACC: Virginia Tech will win the ACC. I do think that Miami has the most talent. However, the talent is too young, and young talent in Miami can be a bad combination. Give them another year, and I think they could make a National Championship run.

SEC: The SEC will be won by Alabama. They’re the best team so why not.

Big Ten: Ohio State is once again the class of the Big Ten, and the will win the Conference title for the 6th straight year. The bigger question is will they lose a Big Ten game and Jeopardize their title chances.

Big 12: Texas will win the Big 12. This is definitely a down year for this conference, so it’s kind of hard to predict. I pick Texas because they generally recruit better talent. Plus I like their quarterback to fill Colt McCoy‘s shoes, better than Oklahoma filling Sam Bradford’s shoes.

Pac-10: This conference is definitely the most wide open. If not for the sanctions that USC will be facing for the next 2 years, I would pick them hands down. However, because of the sanctions Washington, Stanford, Arizona State, and Oregon have a real chance to dominate. With all that being said talent wins in college sports. That’s why I’m picking the USC Trojans to win the Pac-10. They just have a better team than everyone else. There biggest road block will be keeping their players motivated to play, while knowing they won’t be rewarded with post season play.

Everyone Else: Obviously you have to keep an Eye on Boise State. You don’t need me to tell you they have an oppurtnity to make history, by being the first non-B.C.S. school to play in the championship game. TCU is another team that I love. I definitely think they will make it to another BCS bowl game. Notre Dame will continue to be terrible. Notre Dame Apologist will tell you their building a team and they recruit top players. Well if that’s true, why don’t you win? Boise State wins, and they (supposedly) recruit lesser talent. Notre Dame will only win this year if they finally embrace what they are, a team that has limited talent, and must rely on a change of pace game.

Big Winners and Big Losers

    The big winners this season will be

The SEC: They will continue to show their dominance.

The Big Ten: This year they will reestablish themselves as the second best conference in the country.

The Heisman Trophy winner will be Terrelle Pryor

        The Best college player will be Julio Jones

    The Big Losers

        The Michigan Wolverines, if I were Rich Rodriguez I would rent and not buy. “Hey Rich, your rents do.”

        USC will be a loser, because of the post season ban. The amount of money and recruits they will lose could really hurt them in the future.

        The BCS Bowl system will be a loser. After all the bad publicity they’ll get this season, I don’t know how they win…unless everyone watches all the games? MY bad, the BCS is still a winner.

Small conference will be the big loser, because after all the publicity Boise State, TCU, and Utah get this season. They will no longer have a need for you. Those teams will leave for bigger and better conferences, rendering the WAC and MWC even more irrelevant than they already are. Personally I thought that was impossible, but if you have faith, scrubs always come through.

    

So, that’s what will happen this season. Feel free to react with a comment, or just continue to mumble under your breathe.

And by the way, The Ohio State Buckeyes will be National Champions.
