With the new college football season just around the corner, it is time to take a look at the best programs for the 2010 period so the NCAA betting fans can make a good profit from the beginning to the end of the season.
These are the best 25 college football programs for Week 1:
25. Georgia Bulldogs: A new quarterback (Aaron Murray) and a new defensive coordinator (Todd Grantham) should be enough to forget last year’s horrible bowl presentation.
24. Oregon State Beavers: They have a top-line defense with four returning starters on the offensive line and a junior running back to help the sophomore QB Ryan Katz.
23. Utah Utes: Take a good look at quarterback Jordan Wynn; you will hear his name all season.
22. Florida State Seminoles: Jimbo Fisher is taking over for Bobby Bowden. A new day and a new era, hopefully.
21. Auburn Tiger: Shocking Bama last year should give them some energy, as they run and run the ball with Onterio McCalebb.
20. West Virginia Mountaineers: The only winners of Brian Kelly leaving Cincinnati to go to Notre Dame were the Mountaineers, by far.
19. Arkansas Razorbacks: Mark my words, Ryan Mallett is a Heisman contender, so obviously that means a bowl appearance for Arkansas.
18. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets: Quarterback Josh Nesbitt is going to put on quite a passing show in the ACC.
17. North Carolina Tar Heels: The Tar Heels will make a run at the ACC title with a rough defense and an offense that don’t make too many turnovers.
16. LSU Tigers: With Jordan Jefferson at the QB position, it is going to be a long season for the Tigers.
15. Penn State Nittany Lions: Penn State lost plenty of good players on D, plus I’m thinking Joe Paterno should step down now. It’s about time, Grandpa.
14. Pittsburgh Panthers: Dion Lewis and the defense, that’s how you sum up this team.
13. Miami Hurricanes: I don’t want to hear anyone putting Jacory Harris on the list of Heisman candidates. No real QB plus a soft defense; perhaps I have them way too high on my list.
12. Wisconsin Badgers: The expectations are running high this year, as QB Scott Tolzien is back and the roster looks pretty balanced.
11. Iowa Hawkeyes: Ricky Stanzi should forget about the injuries, but the success of this squad relies on the defense, with nine defensive starters returning.
10. Oregon Ducks: This team should be ranked higher, but without Masoli, they won’t be as good rushing the ball.
9. Nebraska Cornhuskers: QB Zac Lee should prove that his arm surgery is in the past. With no Suh on the roster, this team must put up some points offensively.
8. Virginia Tech Hokies: Returning running backs Ryan Williams and Darren Evans will be the key for the new QB Tyrod Taylor to feel good in front of this offense.
7. Oklahoma Sooners: I really like the Sooners because QB Landry Jones played most of last season and already knows everything about that offense.
6. TCU Horned Frogs: QB Andy Dalton, RB Matthew Tucker, and Ed Wesley will try to get to a BCS game, so don’t be surprised if they make it.
5. Florida Gators: A new era is coming in Florida; QB John Brantley is the complete opposite of Tim Tebow. Can he handle the pressure of that position? We’ll see.
4. Boise State Broncos: I’ll bet when you think of the greatest show on blue turf, you think of QB Kellen Moore and Boise State. Boy, are they fun to watch.
3. Ohio State: I’m not buying Terrelle Pryor just yet; he still needs to show me he can be the Vince Young of the new decade.
2. Texas Longhorns: Garrett Gilbert showed last year on the biggest stage in college football that he is up for the challenge. However, the Longhorns have some question marks on the offensive line.
1. Alabama Crimson Tide: Heisman trophy winner Mark Ingram is back, but also QB Greg McElroy and junior wide receivers Marquis Maze and Julio Jones too. How could anybody be above them?
