I assume we have many-a college football fan here. I'm a huge Michigan fan, myself.

I was a Rich Rod supporter, but I'm open to Hoke. As long as he doesn't go too hardcore with the three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust stuff, I can be on board. You just can't refuse to use a player like Denard Robinson in a way that optimizes his talent.

8-4 would be a pretty successful season.

Michigan? Aren't you from Ohio? Anyway I am a huge Iowa fan so one Saturday a year I hate you! Ha. I think Iowa is the sleeper of the Big 10, they have no expectations and that seems to be when they are the best. It should be fun.

8-4 with one of those losses to Notre Dame. I think 8 wins is a pretty good number, and with all the turnover in the Big 10 this year, they could sneak up and win the conference.

I would be disappointed with 8 wins for Notre Dame, but I think it's probably about how they'll finish too.

This is a topic I know little about, I really only follow MLB with passion and tenacity. But I am a Indiana native and have a degree from IU so when basketball season starts I pay attention... but thats just a Hoosier requirement.

Oh no, it's in the blood isn't it? I am from Indiana too, and I don't really watch basketball outside of Indiana based college ball. Notre Dame, IU, Purdue, Butler; I watch all the short, scrappy, 3 point shooting white guys. They're all Ryan Theriot where I'm from damn it!!!!

Yes it is, there is no way to escape it. I was at IU when the whole Bobby Knight fallout happened- the passion was insane! Angry mobs, tear gas, good fun!

Yeah; but I'm originally from Toledo (family was all from Toledo), so my dad was a big Michigan fan. Rubbed off on me. I actually went to OSU for law school, so I had to tuck away my Michigan garb for a few years.

Iowa always seems to be better than expected.

A Michigan fan? Well, no one's perfect. My flaw is I keep believing in Purdue sports year after year

Your always be second to IU regardless of recent success, and Butler is starting to challenge your number two hold.

Notre Dame all the way. I predict 8-4 though the possibilty for me is 10-2. Depends on which team shows up to play USC, MI St, Pitt and Navy.

If you missed the TCU vs Baylor game you missed what could be the most exciting game of the season

Well being in the sooner state, I've been a die hard OU fan really since I was little. The Stoops era has been good to me! I hit about 2-3 games a year and really dig whippin' up on Texass...
