The Official 2012 Football Season Thread

Swami Focalor predicts...

A changing of the guard in the NFL. I don't really think anyone really needs to fear Indianapolis going on a huge win streak this year, or New Orleans. The Atlanta Falcons will not win the Superbowl this year. The Cleveland Browns will DEFINITELY not win the Superbowl this year. Other than that, it should be pretty unpredictable and interesting all around. Andrew Luck did look pretty good in the first preseason game with Indy, but he's gonna need the rest of the team to bring it all to the game, and I don't think they will. I think either New Orleans or Carolina will take the NFC South. Unless Matt Ryan can get his O-line to cover him better, he won't have the time he needs to find Roddy White or Julio Jones, and RB Michael Turner will be NO help in the running game, so Atlanta is dead before the season starts as far as I can see.

I'm going all out with my predictions, at the end I will look back and see how I did.

NFC
East - Giants  (Philly - Vick can't stay healthy enough for them to win, Dallas - They always find a way to choke)
North - GB (This will be close again with both Chicago & Detroit within a game or two)
South - NO (NO edges Carolina in a tight division race)
West - SF wins their division easily
Wildcards - Dallas & Detroit

NFC Playoffs
Giants beats Dallas
Detroit beats NO

GB beats Gaints
SF beats Detroit

SF beats GB

AFC
East - NE
North - Baltimore edges Pitt for the division
South - Houston
West - Denver edges SD for the division
Wildcards - Pitt & SD

Denver beats Pitt
Houston beats SD

NE beats Denver
Baltimore beats Houston

Baltimore beats NE

Super Bowl
SF beats Baltimore 21-17

just noticed louisville being ranked 25th in the preseason AP, as well as receiving the most votes outside of espn's top 25 preseason power rankings(essentially 26th)...

Nah, AP Top 25 has Louisville starting off 25th. Believe it or not, that's pretty important for a team like Louisville. Even if they win every single game as well as a championship game, they won't have much of a chance at reaching the BCS title game unless every other team loses 2 games.

Georgia's starting off the year 6th, and they have a pretty decent looking semi-easy schedule,... but who knows. Even with the help of an easy schedule, that ain't what I really want to see. They've had problems the past 2 years with stamina. They play the first 2 quarters tough and spot-on, but then they get tired and lazy by the 4th quarter and get beaten. Playing a bunch of scrub teams ain't good for training yourself out of that kind of shit. You play a pushover team, and all the starters whoop ass for the first 2 quarters, after which the coach pulls out all the starters and lets the backups drag out the 2nd half to the win. If Georgia stays ahead of South Carolina to take the SEC East again, it'll no doubt be UGA vs BAMA for the SEC title. The only competition I see anyone giving Bama in the SEC West might be LSU again. Then again, who knows. Should be another very interesting year of college football. I know I'm enjoying the shit out of the SEC taking the BCS title the past several years. Make's people like THIS GUY mad as hell.

It's a big deal for louisville because they're the most overrated team on the entire AP / espn preseason PR list... and that's saying something being that they're the last rankable position.

Georgia's starting off the year 6th, and they have a pretty decent looking semi-easy schedule,...

I was looking at strength of schedule rankings (based on opponents W/L from last year, number of teams with winning records, and number of teams who played in a bowl game lastyear)
Georgia's schedule ranks 81 out of 124
LSU - 23rd
FLA - 9th  :raincloud: it looks like another tough year

People should watchout for FL St. this year, they are ranked 7th in the polls and their schedule ranks 99th.  They only play three ranked teams, (Clemson at home, Va Tech away, and FL in Jax)
Jimbo better do good this year or he is going to start feeling the heat.

Georgia, although this year it is NOT the case, has a history of being a little overrated in the pre season...(as in, after their really good team in 2007 or whichever year that was)..

arkansas, georgia, and usc are looking good, there should be decent games among the top 5 in the sec this year...

IOU- the noles are a bit shakey.. aside from the obvious ones to worry about, i'd watch out for NC state on their home field. they really don't lose many home games, I think last season it was 1.
