Ok so the last time I did this was before the spring games. Now that’s all past and players have transferred and quit teams. Some have been kicked off others injured beyond a point of being able to return this season.
I have read numerous spring game reports and now some from the fall camps. I have read preview magazines this summer and watched some preview shows on tv. Then there was College Football Live almost everyday.
Its time to revisit and revise my predictions. Below are my predictions from March 30, 2009 followed by a note on what, if anything, I would change.
ACC - Virginia Tech
North Carolina State
Overall leaving the ACC alone except I am higher on GT than VT so that’s my one difference.
To be honest I think my 1-4 are all pretty interchangeable. At this time I think I would move West Virginia down though and probably go with South Florida on top. Actually just flip flop the two.
I would move Iowa up to three and move Michigan State down maybe behind Minnesota.
Big XII - Texas
No changes for the Big XII.
CUSA - Houston
No changes for Conference USA.
MAC - Central Michigan
At the time I wrote this, I will admit, I didn’t know a lot on the MAC. With that being said my new Mac East prediction is:
This stems from actually doing some homework. Buffalo with what it is replacing, plus now losing Stark,s drops for me. BG is overhauling the D plus a new coach. Jarvis is healthier for Kent State. On the other side though I stand by my West predictions.
San Diego State
No Mountain West changes.
So it may be the homer in me but I’m gonna stand by my Pac 10 predictions.
SEC - Florida
No SEC changes
I think Troy stays on top but I like what Arkansas State has going on so I say move them to the two spot. I now would flip flop ULM and ULL. So that now looks like:
San Jose State
New Mexico State
No changes in the WAC
There you have it my official call for the 2009 season. I reserve the right to edit this up to Sept 3,2009 before any games are played.
