College Football is right around the corner and nobody has said a word. No sooners, no horns, no raiders, nothing. Not even Denny about his fighting irish. Just seems a little weird to me.

It's not just college football, but football as a whole is pretty dead in this forum this season.

Actually Tech had the best ranked defense in the Big 12 the last 8 games of the season and they will only be better this year. Don't forget, Tech played Texas and Oklahoma during the last 8 games so it wasn't a creampuff last 8 games for them either.

Oh, and the Buckeyes will breeze through another joke of conference and get blown out by one of the 4 (maybe 5) superior conferences in their bowl game

As long as they get a big Ten title and a win of Micheegan it's a successful season.

i was thinking maybe all the red raider fans aren't talking because they're affraid of jinxing their team. Cause the way the media talks, in case anybody hasn't been paying attention, they should challenge OU for the big 12 title.



Nate- What's OSU going to do this year? Are they FINALLY going to the big game and win the damn thing. That would be frustraiting

being decent won't be a problem, being experienced will be the problem. Hell almost all the rs-fr, freshman and soph are either 4 or 5 star recruits. Ought to be fun to watch the youngsters grow

Drop the game to USC, run the Big Ten table finish outside the top 2 and go to a BCS bowl.

They may drop one in Big Ten play and still win the title I hope...(Big Ten)

You will be surprised my friend. We just need a decent defense, not a spectacular one. We need them to grade out a B+, and then let the dynamic offense do the rest.

I hate it when hell freezed over, LOL!

Seriously though, we have UT and home and they are not nearly as good this year as previous years. The OU game will be tough in Norman. We always play OU strong though. I think the key games for Tech are actually KU and Aggy away. I think the winner of the South will have 2 losses just like last year.

Lucky...hardly. You guys were outplayed. As for the Bradford/Murray show, we'll see. Bradford had an amazing year last year but he will probably not back that up due to the added pressure of everybody EXPECTING the same thing. Murray will be solid though.

Let any Big 12 QB get knocked out in the 1st quarter & see how things play out.

Bradford isn't up for the sophmore slump I don't think. The entire o-line is back & should give him all day.

The next 8 days are going to drag!!!

I didnt go to college. It was 1:30 in the morning when I was online. Sorry I didnt have perfect grammar for you last night, I was tired from playing golf. I couldnt go to sleep. But yes UT and OU will beat tech. It doesnt matter who you got at home. Tech will always be the third team in the south.

I don't care if you have perfect grammar. I just noticed it was deteriorating and I wanted to finish the conversation before it got to the point where I couldn't figure out what you were saying. But if you're rested now, then I guess we can continue.

But anyways, Texas has a very hard schedule this year. At least for big 12 standards. I believe they play the #4 team which is OU and then the next week they play the #6 team which is missouri. Its going to be a fun season to watch. If somehow Texas goes undefeated they should be in the national chamioship games with all the rank teams they play.

This will probably be one of the worst seasons for UT in the Mack Brown era. Texas has the least amount of returning starters of ANY team in all the BCS conferences. The big question marks will be how the very young, undersized secondary will perform and how the running game will be without Jamaal Charles.

But at this point, I just want the season to start. I've been a season ticket holder since '99 and this might be my last year due to this whole Air Force thing. The new North end zone will be rocking and I can't wait.

For those of you that haven't seen pics of the new NEZ, check out the time lapse.
