Oklahoma, Iowa, Oregon, and LSU are all very overrated.
I think UNC will end much higher than 18.
And Auburn will, of course, finish 23 spots higher than we're at right now after winning the NC.

Last year's record in parenthesis? So Alabama was 5-5?

Andy Bitter said...

Ha! I meant first-place votes in parentheses. Records are last year's.

Oh. Now I have to re-write my Alabama preview story.

I liked you better when you were on GEOCITIES!!!!!!!!

Where are the NCAA 11 simulations!? I need to know how Auburn will do this year since it was so close last year.

Andy Bitter said...

I didn't buy the game this year. I'm hoping some kind reader of the blog would simulate the season and let me know how the results go.

You can just sim the whole season and give the highlights. I don't know if we need day-by-day updates. I'm curious to see how things turn out myself.
