Huge saints fan. I leave for new Orleans to see them drop the championship flag at the dome next Saturday. Heading over for a week and game is on the Thursday night.
Couldn't be more excited.
Saints to repeat. Two Dat!

I think we have a good chance to do it all over again this year as think we may only have gotten better during the off season. Can't wait to go over and see us beat the Vikings and favre again.

REALLY excited about both starting, but more so (as usual) about the NCAA.
The Gators/Crimson Tide/Tigers/Buckeyes will all be undoubted favourites to take the national championship this year, though Florida will be a VERY different side without Tebow.
I don't expect us (Michigan) to have a great year, though I do expect better than last year. Going to the Big House NEXT season to see the Michigan vs Ohio State game, which will be EPIC!
As for the NFL - I'm originally from Newport, RI., so I'm a HUGE New England fan. I can't see us winning anything this season, though as ever, I would at least expect us to win division. Not quite sure who I fancy this season for the Superbowl. The usual suspects will be around (Colts, Giants, Chargers, Steelers, Pats), but I can't see the Saints repeating their feat again this year.Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

There is nothing better than NCAA. If you can get into it then stick with it. Tops the NFL by some and more. It can be quite hard to follow though as there are that many divisons and the way they work out the eventual winners can be very confusing. Not sure if allowed to premote but get your self over to nfluk.com. Loads of info regarding all things american football and the forum is great. Got a whole section covering the NCAA and you will be made more than welcome.
ESPN have got MNF this year which is great news and they also cover the ncaa, showing a lot of their games.
If you looking for a NCAA team to follow give us your criteria and we will point you in the right direction.
As for the Superbowl you will be hard prest to see past the Jets/Ravens in the AFC and in the NFC you looking at the Packers and maybe the Saints.
If your looking for a long shot go for the Cardinals.
Can't wait for the season to start and just putting the Jets game on the now.
Does anyone on here play the fantasy football?

College wise, I am following NC State because my friend goes there. I am looking forward to seeing some good college ball this year.
NFL wise... I am not sure our boys (the Pats) will do well this year Scott, Miami have improved and the Jets have made some top signings and had a decent defense last year... It is going to be alot tougher than previous years.
I quite fancy the Ravens to go all the way this year... Although I hope Brady takes us all the way again...

The Jets have been here before - they make a habit of signing big names who fail to cut the mustard. Having said that, I do think Tomlinson and Taylor will be big signings for them.
I don't think we'll finish bottom of the division - if we can get Brady working early on and the new defensive line gels quickly enough, we could have a very solid season.
Only time will tell though - our pre-season hasn't been a disaster, with us chalking up wins vs the Saints (in Foxborough) and crushing the Falcons in Atlanta. We narrowly lost to the Cards at home, but by 1 point, in what was a high scoring affair.
Our key problem in pre-season has been the number of 1st downs we've been giving up!Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

Very true Scott. Very True.
Season is just around the corner, got beers and munch in the house ready for KO!

Can't wait for Saturday!
ESPN America is featuring 3 games from the opening day of the NCAA College season:
5pm: Miami (OH) vs Florida Gators - be very interesting to see how Florida do without their star QB, Tebow, who's moved onto bigger and better things in the NFL.
8pm: Connecticut vs Michigan! - not often we actually feature these days, following some very poor seasons back to back, but we kick the season off at home in the Big House vs a very strong looking Huskies organisation. I fully expect to see us have a mediocre season, culminating in a defeat at Ohio State, but hopefully we can have one televised win!
1am: Oregon State vs TCU - I have a very close friend and some research colleagues at OSU, so if I'm still awake enough, I'll stay up and watch the Beavers open their season against the TCU Horned Frogs (only Texans...)Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

What are the NFL games on Sunday
01-09-2010 06:49 PM #13
ESPN have the big game of the week Ravens V Jets on the Monday.
There is nothing fixed yet for SNF which channel five had but I'm told there could be something in the running. If I hear anything will post it.

Sunday Night Football has been picked up by channel 4, woo hoo!! full article on nfluk website here http://www.nfluk.com/news/football-i...-4-010910.html

Cheers for that, i see they have the Packers v Cowboys Match

Looks like it's going to be another nightmare year trying to follow the PatriotsMadness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

So the NFL is coming home. This year is just getting better and better. Roll on next week, can't wait.
01-09-2010 09:42 PM #19
Think the next week could drag in until I'm at the superdome.
03-09-2010 10:29 PM #20
Have spent the evening watching Remember the Titans, We Are Marshall and Any Given Sunday and am properly pumped up to watch the Wolverines take on the Huskies tomorrow.
Go BLUE!Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

Massive Giants fan, can't see us doing anything at all this year tho. I think Baltimore will win it all. They added where they needed in the close season and well...that defence.
04-09-2010 05:22 PM #22
What's everyones thoughts regarding the Revis situation. It really looks like we won't be seeing him this season, which is a shame as he is a great player. Can you imagine if a Hibs player was acting like that.
04-09-2010 06:02 PM #23
Gators look pish
04-09-2010 06:10 PM #24
They don't look themselves, but you can see why they're ranked 4 - clinical when the opportunities present themselves.
Miami (OH) don't look bad - their offense has cost them the 3 scores they're currently down more than their defense. Good field position here in the middle of the 3rd, but Florida's defense look solid.Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.
04-09-2010 06:19 PM #25
Samford 3-42 Florida State
Yougstown State 7-30 Penn State
Miami (OH) 9-21 Florida
Eastern Illinois 7-30 Iowa
La Lafayette 7-31 Georgia
South Caroline State 3-20 Georgia Tech
Western Michigan 13-35 Michigan State
Weber State 10-21 Boston College
On Thursday night there were also a few games - not sure why the OSU vs Marshall game or the USC vs Hawaii games weren't broadcast, as they were both on ESPN.
Ohio State 45-7 Marshall
Florida A&M 0-45 Miami (FL)
USC 49-36 Hawaii
Pittsburgh 24-27 UtahMadness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

Jeffrey Demps - wow, this boy is rediculously fast!
TD Florida, who now lead 27-12.
The inability to snap the ball continues to haunt them though!Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.
04-09-2010 07:27 PM #27
Florida win 34-12 in the end.
New centre required, as Pouncey is utterly woeful!Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

As usual, an electric atmosphere in the BIGGER House! 109k people packed into Ann Arbor!
Here's hoping for a turn-around in our recent fortunes.
Come on you Wolverines!!!Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.
