Clemson over Alabama-Of course! The Tigers smoked the Crimson Tide in Januaray's national title game. Although Clemson loses the best defensive line EVER in college football history, they are the team to beat. To quote the legend Ric Flair "To be the man you have to beat the man"

No love for Ohio State?: The Buckeyes have proven to be one of the best programs in the country over the last decade. However this year Ohio State enters the season without their all time great coach, Urban Meyer and a new quarterback. The Buckeyes have a ton of talent but it's the coaching I'm more concerned about this season.

Army this year's sleeper?-That's right. You may forget that the Black Knights pushed the Oklahoma Sooners last year to an almost upset. Look out Michigan fans, the Black Knights are projected to win ten games this season and could be heading to a New Year's Six bowl game in 2020.
