When did Alabama get hit with sanctions? I don't remember hearing that, though I could've missed it.

I will, but read the article again. It says they received three years probation but that their eligibility for the postseason is still in effect. So Alabama CAN get to a bowl game this year and possibly the National Championship Game.

I'd do backflips if Michigan managed to finish third in conference with a true freshman quarterback.

I just wanna try and revive this and toss some thoughts out:

1. Considering all the turmoil USC has gone through lately (Mark Sanchez leaving, losing both coordiators, naming a freshman as the starting QB, losing their #2 WR for two months), Ohio State HAS to jump on this and beat USC when they face each other. If they don't, it'll be a golden opportunity squandered.

2. Michigan is going through turmoil of their own, with the recent allegations of violations over practice and workout time. Normally, I wouldn't take it too seriously with no investigations completed, BUT this is Michigan. I have never known ANYONE either past or present to blow the whistle (or snitch, depending on your perspective) on the Wolverines. I'm still gonna wait, but I do find this troubling.....

3. Lou Holtz isn't as crazy or as much of a homer as you may think. Check Notre Dame's schedule. It's entirely possible given who the Irish are returning and who they're facing that they could end up playing for the National Championship. They're facing a LOT of programs with either new coaches or new QBs, and the relative ease of their schedule could very well lead to playing for the BCS Championship.

I'm not much of a college football guy, but I believe that the BCS powers that be should be on their knees every night praying that Notre Dame rattles off a national championship run. Notre Dame's fanbase is huge, and hasn't been all that engaged recently. A run to a major bowl game would make the BCS guys insane amounts of cash, and draw a ton of attention.

In short:  GA Tech wins ACC Title, and in a rematch of last year Oklahoma defeats Florida :(
Coming from a Gator fan, I think their D improves much more than what we faced with their injuries healed up now.
