Like the title says...short and sweet rankings and why.

Here we go!


Tim Tebow plus everyone back but Harvin.


Colt McCoy is that good.


Offense will be almost as good. Defense will be reloaded.


OU lost some guys but Bradford is still there plus not one, two 1000 yard running backs.


Robinson, Bryant, and Hunter. Think 2008 Texas Tech, but with a running back!


Terrelle Pryor is the truth and Boom and Zoom will replace Beanie Wells just fine and the depth and speed at WR is just sick!


Jevan Snead is considered the best NFL QB prospect and he did beat UF last year!


I'm on the Tyrod Taylor bandwagon for now...


If they can fill the holes at O-line and WR, Clark and Royster should do the rest.


Jordan Jefferson should be a capable QB for now and Charles Scott will be the best back in the SEC.


Kevin Riley looks to provide the Golden Bears with some stability at QB. It won't hurt him that he has the nation's top returing RB, Jahvid Best, to hand the ball to.


The tandem of QB Jeremiah Masoli and RB LeGarrette Blount should make a formidable one-two punch for Pac-10 opponents this season.


The Tide lost several starters, but they've also been recruiting very well and say what you will about Saban, but the guy can coach!


Paul Johnson is also a heck of a coach and the triple option seems to be his great equalizer against top notch opponents.


Kellen Moore was great a season ago as a freshman and BSU could play BCS buster once again if they survive against Oregon.


Defense, defense , defense. Plus, they return starters quarterback Andy Dalton and running back Joseph Turner. If not Boise, then TCU! 


RB Shonn Greene is gone but Jewel Hampton is ready to step in and QB Ricky Stanzi has been getting some hype so I'll conform for now until I can see if he can play or not.


It's do or die time for Charlie Weis and Jimmy Clausen. All the highly touted recruiting classes and returning starters make this season make or break. With their easy schedule, anything less than nine or ten wins and it's "Sorry Charlie".


Sorry Browns fans, Butch Davis can coach....just not in the NFL. He can recruit too. The 2009 class of 29 players was ranked No. 9 by Rivals and No. 6 by Scouts Inc.


The Huskers lose their QB and top receivers but year two under Bo Pelini could still be better than year one if RB Roy Helu Jr. is more consistent and new and very mobile QB Zac Lee doesn't make costly mistakes on the fly.


Brian Kelly wins wherever he goes. That's the bottom line. I mean, he led his team to an 11-3 season last year with the 5th string QB so give the man and his team their due!


QB Max Hall returns to a Cougar team that does has holes to fill. There's likely no BCS game in their future as they open at Oklahoma but 10 wins and a solid season isn't impossible.


I'm a huge fan of JaQuizz Rodgers after seeing him tear up USC last season. I'm going to ride this pony again until it bucks me off!


Todd Reesing is back and so is top WR Dezmon Briscoe. I don't see the Jayhawks winning the Big 12 but they could make it to the title game....or not.


The Eagles return starters WR Rich Gunnell and RB Montel Harris in addition to QB Dominique Davis. When starter Chris Crane was injured, he played good enough to help BC beat Wake Forest and Maryland down the stretch before flopping in the ACC title game vs. Va Tech.

That's it, that's the short and sweet of it.

I know I'm pretty much dead on and all (sarcasm), but let's hear what you all think anyway!
