top 10 who knows......

BUT....much improved teams that might be worth a look....to make us some cash

Washington....QB +17 starters ....D should actually be tough
  *open with Boise

Miami...played 21 Fr LY... #16 O but #97 D...fade the Canes? (Covers staple) > 9-3 ATS LY.....7-5 2011 (8-3 road)

NCaro...Clemson...Louisville...TCU...Fresno....Auburn?....E .Ole Miss....Zona?.....USC and Texas worth keeping an eye on (as potential winners or huge losers)

Ariz St maybe...especially after playing >  Wisc > @ Tree > USC > N Dame (at Jerry's House of Mediocrity) wtf......... (week 3-7 seems like)

#1 team to fade? (if you must).....gotta be the Aggies....who will be asked to cover huge numbers despite losing a ton....6-0/195 or so Johnny Football continue to embarrass SEC D's ?......or does he get his head tore off?......... early

i think TCU & O-State will be solid from the big 12.

I can already tell you I will most likely be picking O-State against Miss St on opening weekend.
& I can almost guarantee you I will be throwing down on Bama against A&M week 2

According to what I'm reading on Covers and other websites this team would be a surprise...







LSU

good call. I was originally going to say LSU however, I do not think they have a realistic chance which is why I did not include them. After all we would not go out on a limb with Central Michigan would we?

Crack the top ten.  Just have a soft schedule and start 6-0 and ur in.  But to finish top ten is significant.

Teams that wont start in top ten but will finish in top ten

FSU-  Dont be alarmed by all the noles that get drafted.  This team doesnt worry about x's and o's  they simply "out-athlete" you and there are plenty more on the way. no worse than 10-2

Ok st- Team lost weeden and Blackmon and offense didnt even miss them.  Its a system, and it will continue to roll.  Improved D.  Big 12 favorite and BCS sleeper

Michigan-  Everybody is talking Ohio st but Mich will win the big 10.  Hoke has 3 recruiting classes under his belt and the athletes can compete at a top ten level.  Manageable schedule too

Baylor- Bit of a long shot here, but after losing RG3 the offense actually improved.  Similar to Ok st. i believe its a system and bryce petty steps in and keeps it rolling.  The D is awful and they will prob lose a couple shootouts but if eveything breaks right they are worth $10 at 200-1

TCU, Texas, Ole Miss, and UCLA

TCU get's druggie QB Pachall back...I think they could get in the top 10...they are well coached…no one does more with less, and Patterson has been getting some solid recruits over the last 5 years that would have otherwise gone to UT, A&M or Baylor…

I also my Longhorns will be there by the end of the season...Make no mistake, Texas has talent. I think Ash will be the sole QB this year. I think overall Texas is in decline, at least as long as Mack Brown is here. But, Mack wants one more try at a NC. With OU and Kansas St. down next year, and my belief that Texas can beat Ok St and TCU, I think Texas could surprise some folks in 2013...You heard it here first...

I also like Ole Miss. Coach Blind Side is building something special at Oxford...

Finally, I like UCLA. Stanford is going to start out in top 10, but then fade. Walker is a good coach, but the farther Stan gets from Harbaugh, the more likely they will fade back to traditional Stan mediocrity. I think UCLA will continue to be strong, and Washington is getting better. I think USC might once again find their manhood and return to being relevant. I think Jim Mora is building something special in Westwood. The only problem is that when he finds success, he will return to the NFL, leaving UCLA in a lurch. I think UCLA will be a player this year and a potential top 10...

College football season can't get here soon enough...Cheers to you DUFL!

Definitely look for Ole Miss to be a nice covering machine, atleast out the gate. They will get some pretty nice lines, coming against some tough SEC opponents, but will probably be criminally underrated as always until they prove otherwise.

nice list . ..not sure how I missed this one ....

Michigan might win the BIG 10... hoping for some nice odds ...Maybe 5-1 or better ??? doubt we will be so lucky

really Like Oklahoma St this season ... Hope the O-Line can do its part ...

Florida St is my Pick to win the ACC ... likely backing the canes if the price is right ,

Baylor might be a cash cow ,,, lsoing Nick Florence is no Big thing

Teams I think will spend some time in the Top 10

Fresno St ... might go 12-0

Arizona St .... could end up in the PAC12 championship game

TCU     outside shot at winning the BI12

and Ole Miss as mentioned above

Love Baylor this year as well. Ill be looking at them early and often. I just have a good feeling about Petty, and I love Lache. Defense sucks, but I think it will take a big step forward.

Oklahoma St I like, but I have a feeling Vegas likes them too. They have very few holes actually on the team as a whole. But I wouldn't worry about the o-line, Todd Munkin does a hell of a job with his o-line. 

And I am with bookie - A&M will fade for me this year. I think they take a step back. Very confident in that

glad we are on the same page with oklahoma St and baylor ... Both Offenses should be outstanding ... that O-Line for the Cowboys does worry me some ... Excited to see a more aggressive scheme on D ...

my Point Spread ratings are high on A&M , but I doubt I will be backing them often with the Odds makers hard up in the GOY lines

Won't it be the opposite, everyone thinks they will be better because of one recruiting class.

TCU getting that azz waxed first game!!!

You don't think LSU has a chance HMMM  How much do you know about football??  Just because they play hard schedule???  Well you will be surprised at end of year!!  BANK IT!! 

Just because LSU doesnt play PUZZY SCHEDULES like BAMMER doesnt mean they can't win enough to finish or be in top ten!!  Thats any easy bet for me for any amount you want!!! I am willing to say LSU will be top ten most of season especially after they beat TCU handly and then beat BAMMERS AZZ at home again!!  NO DO overs this year!!

It wouldn't surprise me at all if LSU wins and covers against TCU in the first game, then TCU goes on to win the Big 12.
