The Tide r gonna win it all. even though i cant stand em, they're the best in the nation and Mark Ingram will dominate once again. But I dont think dat he win da Heisman Ryan Mallet or Tyrell Pryor will win it

YES!! I'm from OSU and I hope those predictions are right! We have the best QB in the league this year. I'd pay just to be at a championship!

When you say league i hope you mean there confrence cause in my opinon jake Locker is a little bit better then Pryor Locker is up in the Northwest he get no Publicity for the last3 years and deserves a lot this year because me being a UW fan he gets me excited for this season nothin against Pryor i like Ohio state and pryor but Lockers #1 in my book

Right on! Buckeyes all the way! Lets just hope that last year's Rose Bowl was a sign that our luck has changed and maybe we can win the championship! (fingers crossed!)
