Top College Football Teams in 2008 - from Madison Who's Who

Posts of Madison Who's Who Who's Who Among Top College Football Teams in 2008 2008-09-05 05:09:37 by Stacey Barrus If you’re a football fan, which many of the professionals in Madison Who’s Who directory are, you may be wondering who’s who of the top college teams. Lets take a look at my picks for the best college football teams to watch in 2008. Each of the teams mentioned here is going to be one of the top competitors in the nation this season. 1. Georgia Bulldogs The Bulldogs are looking strong heading into the 2008 season, and are hoping to repeal a botched attempt at a national title in 2007. The Bulldogs have a beefy, complete roster, a Heisman hopeful in Knowshon Moreno, and a knack for making big plays when it counts. The Bulldogs are ranked #1 in the Coaches Poll heading into the season, and in my opinion, as long as they play some football and forget about the hype around the team, they are going to win it all this season. Defensive tackle Jeff Owens said it in his own words: “I’d prefer to be ranked No. 25 and work our way up, than being No. 1 and everybody is gunning for you. Everybody wants Georgia. Who doesn’t want Georgia?” That’s right, Jeff. Watch out for these Georgia Bulldogs, because they are on their way to a national title - 21 years is a long time to be on the porch with the pups. 2. USC Trojans This team is just swarmed with powerhouse starters. Big playmakers including linebacker Rey Maualuga, running back Joe McKnight, and receiver Patrick Turner are going to be tearing up the field this season. Despite missing a returning starting quarterback from the lineup, Pete Carroll tends to mold the noobs with utmost care, producing big QB starters in just a year. USC is going to take another stab at the Pac-10 title, and win it. Period. 3. Ohio State Buckeyes Ohio State has consistently produced a huge football program in the last five years, clearly dominating the Big Ten in the last two seasons. This year is no exception, as the Ohio State Buckeyes are poised to win their third straight Big Ten Conference title – a feat that has never been accomplished by any Big Ten team in the 112-year history of the conference. The Buckeyes are returning a whopping 20 starters – the same starters that led the team all the way to the BCS National Championship game in 2007-2008. If they make it to the big game this year, they are going to have to deal with the Bulldogs (my pick), but it looks as if the assault is already prepared. Yep, my crystal ball tells me the Buckeyes are going to dominate – possible repeat appearance at the BCS title game notwithstanding. 4. Florida Gators With an outstanding offense and eight returning starters on defense, the Florida Gators are going to bring some quality football to the table in 2008-2009.

Urban Meyer promises to bring back the dual-quarterback system, drawing talent from both Cam Newton and Tim Tebow for a well-rounded offensive. The defense also looks stronger than last season, and is poised to take on just about anything you can throw at it. Georgia watch out: if Florida wants it, you could find yourself second in the SEC in 2008-2009. 5. Oklahoma Sooners Last but not least, you have the boys from Oklahoma. The Sooners are prepared to raise a ruckus this season as quarterback Sam Bradford leads an all-star offense on the ground and in the air. Bradford destroyed the record for most touchdown passes thrown by a freshman in 2007. Coupled with the fact that the team is returning 10 starters on offense – an offense that averaged 6.4 yards per play last season – this team is going to be hard to beat. Although the team is replacing several defensive players, the starting defensive line is there, and is going to open up holes for anyone who wants a piece of the opposition. Look for Oklahoma to win the Big 12 Championship yet again this year. (source) Relevant Tags:Madison Whos Who, Whos Who
