For me, the new season of college football begins in mid-July with the release of the NCAA Football video game. As that is next Tuesday, July 13, I have started really thinking of next year. My Boilers are looking at a 7-5 season at best, mostly due to the easy schedule they play, not talent. But, with Purdue not in the national picture, which is the norm, although basketball is a different story, I always look for a team that has a legit shot at a title that I can route for, small conference teams aside, as everyone routes for them, if only Boise St. can pull if off in FedEx Field agianst VT we may have a first national title game with a small confernce team. That is one reason for a tournament, but that isn't happening next year, so no point considering it for title contenders for 2010. (By the way, I have my opinion of a playoff/tourney on a seperate page). The team I am routing for is acually anyone outside of USC (not an issue this year), Ohio St., Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, Alabama, LSU, Notre Dame (even though they have no chance). The same teams as every year. All I know for sure is that 2010 will be an end of an era for college football, so hopefully it's one to remember (by Boise winning it all perhaps).
