    Schlabach - Ten Bold Predictions for 2013

    http://espn.go.com/college-football/...llege-football

    Couple of highlights:
    McCarron will be a Heisman Trophy finalist, and might even win it.
    Sadly, Delany and the Big Ten's athletic directors and presidents will pass on the most appropriate division names available: Rose Bowl Loser and Capital One Bowl Loser.
    DISCLAIMER: I hereby reserve the right to discuss any game on the Alabama schedule I wish, at any time during the season, as I am not a part of the Crimson Tide football program. I am simply a fan who has no impact outside of the money I provide the athletic department via ticket and memorabilia purchases and the energy I can provide when I attend the games. 2009-2014, crimsonaudio

    Well can't complain about point number one. I'm not a fan of the last prediction regarding the barn, however.

    It would be nice... 3-peat could very well happen.

    I'm not sure what he calls "most improved" - they really don't have much place to go other than up. If they finish 6-6 they have doubled their win total. As far as the QB situation goes we will have to wait and see but I would be shocked if Gus actually caught lightning in a bottle twice.

    Agreed.

    For the talking heads enamored of the spread, check out Malzahn's juqgernaut against Alabama, LSU, Arkansas, and Georgia in 2009 and 2011.

    Or let me save you the trouble: about 19.5 points a game in 2009, and about 11 in 2011.

    But 2011 includes a fumble recovered for TD, and a KR for a TD against us in 2011. Even assuming no such luck against the other three (and i do not know how the boogs scored in those games), the vaunted Malzahn offense scored an average of less than 8 points a game against the four teams that mattered in 2011.

    Unless you have a Tebow / Cam / Manziel QB (all three of whom won the Heisman), that offense does not win against good teams.

    If you want to predicate your program on having Heisman winners at the QB position, be my guest. Otherwise, play championship football.

    I could see AU improving in 2013, but I can't buy into AU being the "most improved" team next year. I just don't see the talent/coaching making that kind of impact in 2013.

    Wonder why the Marshall guy was dismissed from Georgia? Oh well apparently yet another thug for *U.

    OK... We may play the DUCKS in the BCS Game next year...
    It's time they put up or shut up. I prefer the later.

    I can't believe it either. The main reason I'm doubting that they'll bounce back so quickly is that NO TEAM can change offensive schemes one year after another without severe repercussions.
    No, they'll wander around at least a couple more years before establishing a new identity. When it's all said and done (probably more said than done) we'll all learn what we've always known - SNASS.

    Didn't they have that opportunity already? They lose a lot this year.

    Among several players caught stealing from his teammates. Maybe he'll get a statue, too.

    Although the other scores were all on offense, the TD against LSU came with 2:22 left in a 45-3 game, meaning it was against probably the fourth string.
