Finally, the most wonderful time of the year has arrived. No, it’s not Christmas or your birthday—it's college football season!

As the season draws down to only hours before the first kickoff on Thursday, there are tons of questions out there regarding the top tier programs in the nation.

Will the Crimson Tide repeat as National Champions?

How did NCAA investigations affect USC and other teams' respective programs over the summer?

Will there by any more musical chairs of conference expansion after a summer of address changes for many teams after the Big Ten got the ball rolling at the end of last season?

All those questions and surely more will be answered, as the college football season will start tomorrow and kick into full gear this Saturday.

Enjoy, Pac-10 football fans, and be sure to see if I picked your team to win on Opening Week.
