It Could Happen in 2010

1) A non-AQ plays for (40%) and wins (15%) a national championship. No one will emerge undefeated from the Pac 10, Big 10, Big XII, ACC, or Big East, so TCU or Boise St just need to win out to get a spot in football's big dance.

2) Two conference foes play for the national championship (<5%). I repeat, no one will emerge untainted from the other five BCS conferences. Alabama and Florida will go toe to toe during the season and then again for the conference championship. If they split, and the rest of the country has at least one loss - Boise St loses to Va Tech and TCU loses to someone - why not turn it into a best of three?

3) Heisman Repeat (45%). It's happened before, and it will probably happen again, and it just might happen again this season. Ingram is the best known commodity of the Heisman candidates. His toughest challenge will be overcoming his own teammates. He will lose carries to Trent Richardson. And QB Greg McElroy will put up big numbers of his own this season.

4) A team from South Bend is underrated (50%). And I don't mean Holy Cross. There is some talent on campus at Notre Dame. I believe Brian Kelly will make something of that talent, win 9 games, and finish the season in the top 25.

5) Rich Rodriguez will start looking more like Dan Hawkins and your '79 Pinto (80%). Dan Hawkins is 16-33 at Colorado. Colorado, remember, won the North 4 of the 5 years before Hawkins arrived. Rich Rod is 8-16 with the all-time winningest program in college football. Your beat up Pinto needs more in car repair every month than it would cost to buy a new car. But you, like Colorado and Michigan, can't afford to ditch the old and bring in the new.
