AND NOW, A HOMER MOMENT
Just for the home crowd, a Schlabach predition for 2007:
The SEC will dominate -- again: Three SEC teams will finish in the top 10, and two will play in BCS bowl games. South Carolina will be among the biggest surprises in the country. But Big Ten commissioner Jim Delaney will remind us all that his league's teams are smarter.
What does it take to overstate how good you are and lose horrifically? Smarts.
The link is here. Some of his more notable predicitions include:
--The Trojans will finish on top ... The Trojans will play West Virginia for the national championship Jan. 7 in the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, three weeks after the Trojans receive a formal notice of investigation from the NCAA for alleged violations involving 2005 Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush.
--West Virginia will go unbeaten.
--Steve Slaton will win the Heisman.
--Clemson will struggle again. [Is Schlabach a closet Gamecock?]
