CLIP REEL: WHAT COLLEGE TEAMS
ARE FOR REAL?
Is this the year he really becomes 'the man?'
First experience with 'Clip Reel?' You can go here for more information.
Take a look at
the current college football standings
. Granted, no one's really played anyone yet (sorry,
), but there are a few surprise undefeateds in the bunch.
? Kirk Ferentz? Odd.
? Hmm. Are any of these teams for real, or will the schedule sort it out? Let's take a look at a few squads, via Clip Reel.
Their official team page.
Their ESPN.Com team page.
One reason they may be legit: Andy Brodell.
Another reason: Mitch King and Matt Kroul.
Still a third: the QB situation seems to be less murky.
Still, the schedule starting October 18th isn't easy.
Gotta start here.
One reason they could surprise: it's the 20th anniversary of their best season ever, so maybe the magic rubs off.
Second reason: their team intro is pretty sweet.
Third reason: Dez Bryant.
One reason: they've shocked people before.
Another reason: Derrick Locke.
Third reason: Rich Brooks is legit.
Problem, though: SEC is a strong football conference.
Official site (it has a 'blog network')
Reason 1: they've already beaten Spurrier.
Reason 2: Chris Nickson.
Reason 3: we can't resist. We love Vandy guys!
Reason 1: they did beat Oklahoma last year. Anything can happen!
Reason 2: Darrell Scott is pretty nasty.
Reason 3: Dan Hawkins is an emotional fellow.
