What's Next?
Schlabach: Forward Thinking
Wondering what's next for college football? After gazing into the crystal ball, Mark Schlabach offers some early predictions for the 2007 season.
Schlabach: Crossing The Line
After taking a big step forward last season, Stephen McGee and Texas A&M are focused on becoming a legitimate Big 12 threat in 2007.
Schlabach: Beware Of The Dawg
Matthew Stafford's baptism-under-fire freshman campaign had its ups and downs, but Georgia expects the experience to pay big dividends in 2007.
Maisel: Road To Redemption
After struggling through a season of discontent, Iowa's road to redemption started in bowl preparation. But will the Hawkeyes build upon what they learned?
Maisel: Pacific Heights
Besides USC, the Pac-10 hasn't been taken seriously in a long time, but the game is cyclical. If there's a conference answer to what's next, it's the Pac-10.
Schlabach: Quiz Show
Louisville QB Brian Brohm's decision to return for his senior season amidst a coaching change surprised many. But he feels he still has plenty to prove.
Maisel: Passion Play
An ACL injury sidelined Micah Andrews for most of Wake Forest's dream season, but he is determined to play a leading role in the sequel.
Schlabach: Character Development
QB Tim Tebow is making the transition from a scene-stealing supporting player to Florida's leading man, but the defending champs don't expect their fortunes to change much.
Maisel: Internal Affairs
The begrudging respect given Wisconsin in 2006 is available as fuel for 2007, but Bret Bielema's disciplined approach keeps the Badgers' focus inward.
Maisel: Heat Of The Knights
While the Rutgers program is still aglow in the embers of an 11-2 season, Greg Schiano continues to stoke the Scarlet Knights' fire.
