2012 NCAA Football mega thread
Anyone else ready for football to start?

Playoffs this year? New blood in the SEC with Missouri and Texas A&M?

This will be a make it or break it year for Dooley, and hopefully he can back up the "little less talk, little more action" and "you won't have Tennessee to kick around anymore" statements he's been making here lately. With Bray 100% (albeit if he can stay out of trouble)
http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports...u9W_story.html
and Hunter back, returning alot of starters and apparently doing well recruiting-wise, hopefully we can make something of this year. Maybe the NC State game will roll the Vols into high gear early.
I've already got tickets for the Alabama game at home.

Discuss!

Ha yup. Apparently, Tennessee (and probably alot of other schools) contacted a number of their players trying to get them to jump ship before it sank.

You're right. Jumping ship to bama when you live in TN and have no connections to UA is pretty unforgivable. I think Florida's returned to its normal fan levels by now.

You'll see Texas stuff all the way across the state out in El Paso, and I'd confuse people by wearing my power T hat. "What's the score?" "Hell if I know, I don't root for your team."

I'm pretty interested to see how the new upstarts in the SEC will do. Both Missouri and A&M play a number of home games this year, but some of the ones they don't will be riled up, hostile crowds. Mizzou @ S.Carolina, and then the swamp and neyland back to back. They play bama at home which should be pretty fun to watch.

I'd say the Aggies have it harder though being in the West (anyone have any idea why Mizzou got put in the East?) A&M plays UF and Arkansas at home, but goes on the road 3 straight weeks against Auburn, Miss St, and bama.

If nothing else, the new matchups should get people to watch.

If Tennessee can have a running back show up, then the offense will be ridiculous. Interested to see how the defense handles the 3-4.

No one else forgets, at least it seems. Even when Tennessee's down, and fans know they're down, and other schools know they're down, no one overlooks them. Too many bad memories. It's hard to say here in the last few years what kind of Vols team will show up to play, but even Alabama isn't going to take any chances.

I hope the Big 12 additions get their teeth kicked in. I'm tired of hearing the Big 12 fans telling me how the SEC isn't ready for B12 offense all season. I can't wait to see them play multiple teams with NFL caliber defense.

10 sack game or bust!

SEC would take a bit to get used to decent big 12 offense. A&M and Mizzo aren't top caliber Big 12 teams. i'm not saying they aren't ready, but it's stuff they haven't seen every week for the last 20+ years.
