10 wins minimum or gtfo I say. 9 wins is acceptable with a bowl win and an OU win.

I need a team to follow, but I don't really like either team in Washington.

Since you don't like either Wash. team i'd say wagon Oregon. Prolly close to you, and always a title contender.

You follow E Wash. in FCS right?

I don't watch games, but I pay attention to how they play. Probably would have gone to school there if it were a little closer. I've spent some time out there though. Nice little town, nice campus.

Nice, they always have a good team. I'm hopin FBS can get a playoff system more like the FCS in the future. 8 team playoff would be perfect imo.

Their playoff system is awesome, it works really well. I love watching those games, such intensity.

Here's what I think preseason top 10 will look like...

1. Bama

2. Ohio St

3. Oregon

4. Texas A&M

5. Stanford

6. Georgia

7. S Carolina

8. Clemson

9. LSU

10. Louisville

Florida & Texas will probably be just outside top 10.

Hell yeah, only team I missed was the Gaytors. Even though preseason polls are f*ckin stupid, looks about right. Surprised FSU & Ok St that high up. Noles breakin in a new QB but he got lotta hype.

Aaaand this is why I feel little to no sympathy for players who complain about not getting paid.  I know this was entirely Nike funded and not typical at all, but the amount of overall benefits college athletes get is incredible.  I still understand the argument and still wouldn't consider myself completely necessarily to the idea, but those who pretend that doing so is our duty and social justice need to get a grip.

I think players should be able to make money off their own memorabilia and whatnot. Manziel not being allowed to sell Johnny Football shirts is stupid. But a base salary is ridiculous.

Oh, Johnny Football.  Truth be told I really don't have a problem with this kind of activity, Manziel is a celebrity and should be able to use his own image however he wishes so long as it doesn't effect his on-the-field football career.   That being said, he's a real idiot if this is true.  Manziel knows the rules, and isn't from the kind of situation where he should be desperate for any sort of short-term payday.  I've been on his side when it comes to most of the 'controversies' he's been involved in this year, but despite my dubious view of the rule itself I won't feel an ounce of sympathy if he's suspended or banned.

My school is actually just starting a football team, and while we're going to begin as a FCS we're on the fast track to join FBS in 2015.  I've already volunteered to be part of its marketing associatio, which basically means i'll be one of people who helps make and put up advertisements around campus and/or gets together and hosts all the little fun things during breaks in the action and half time (promos, t-shirt cannons, etc).

My alma mater dropped its football program back in the leather helmet days when some old religious widow granted the school a huge endowment on the condition they separate themselves from that "barbaric, uncivilized game".

UNC-Charlotte.  They're really going all out on this, far too much so to turn back on it for the foreseeable future.
