2011 College Football Predictions: The Over-Under Win Total on Every Top 25 Team

    In America, there are two seasons: football season and waiting for football season.

    The offseason is painful. Without the NFL or college football, what are we supposed to do with our lives?

    I am counting down the days until early September and the start of college football season. The same thing is happening all across the country. It cannot get here soon enough.

    It's only February 10. It is 202 days away.

    Spring practice and spring games are only a couple weeks away, so we will get a brief glimpse of what to expect in the fall. However, even that won't fill the void that we all feel.

    It is never too early for college football predictions, and I present a unique format in this article in predicting the over/under win total for every top 25 team.

    Let it be clear that these are my opinions, and they are just that. I know that people will disagree with me, and you have that right to have your own opinions. I expect that.

    I know that I am going to receive criticism, so all that I ask is that it be done in a respectful way.

    After you read this article, I would appreciate any comments, positive or negative.

    Here are the over/under win totals for the top 25 teams. Let the debate begin.
