2008 will without a doubt be the most memorable season of the century.
There are so many teams on the radar for that number one spot come early January, that you can't even count with two hands.
The Georgia Bulldogs are number one entering the season for the first time in school history. They are led by last year's freshman sensation, and upcoming sophomore Knowshon Moreno.
Georgia has a solid team on both sides of the ball, but playing through that schedule may effect Georgia's chances to play in Miami for the BCS Championship. That schedule is like walking through a mine field; you're highly unlikely to make it out in one piece.
We all know reigning Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow is hungry for a championship. The Florida Gator quarterback has a pretty strong supporting cast to win the SEC in Atlanta.
With the emergence of Chris Rainey and USC transfer Emmanuel Moody, the running game of Florida will be much more productive in 2008. This will lead to a healthier and stronger Tebow. If Percy Harvin can manage to get healthy, this offense will be scary.
Florida's only worry is the defense. If the defense makes a couple third down stops this season, the Florida Gators may win it all.
The Auburn Tigers look to beat out the 2007 BCS Champion LSU Tigers for the SEC West.
While that is taking place, Florida and Georgia will be battling in the East.
November 1st may be the biggest game of the Cocktail Party's history.
Looking at the West Coast, USC is coming into 2008 with arguably the best defense in the country. Led by linebacker Rey Maualuga, the Trojan defense plans to lead Southern Cal to glory.
Unfortunately the Trojans play another very well-rounded team on September 6th:
The Ohio State Buckeyes.
Led by Heisman hopeful running back Chris Wells and defensive force linebacker James Laurinaitis, the Buckeyes plan to make a statement by making their third straight appearence to the BCS Championship game and winning the Big 10.
Whoever wins on September 6th has a good chance of playing in Miami on January 8th.
The Sooners of Oklahoma seem to be the favorite of the Big 12. Quarterback Sam Bradford hopes to avoid the "sophomore slump" and lead his Sooners to an undefeated season.
The Big 12 is loaded this year, so Bradford will have some competition.
With the Harrell-Crabtree duo at Texas Tech and Chase Daniel-Jeremy Maclin show at Missouri, the Sooners don't have an easy road ahead of them.
Over in the ACC, the early favorite is Clemson. It doesn't look like anybody is going to put up a fight either.
The same situation exists in the Big East. West Virgina, led by quarterback Pat White seem to have a very explosive offense with the addition of Noel Devine, who will be entering his second season.
The only team who may sneak up on the Mountaineers will be the Pitt Panthers.
Another team that may send shockwaves is BYU. They may be the next Boise State or Hawaii.
This year in general may be the biggest year of college football.
So sit back and enjoy, its gonna be a long and exciting year of college football!
