2012 Gameday Preseason predictions

This morning is a great day every year for the Gameday blog; the day we get the College Gameday preseason predictions.  This is the day that our Gameday crew likes to throw out bold predictions which usually look ludicrous at the end of the year.  Example: see here (I’m looking in your direction Skip Bayless for that Notre Dame undefeated prediction).  So this year, we are of course back with more preseason predictions, but as always the preseason predictions do not count towards the official record due to how outlandish they may be when all is said and done.  Here’s how things are starting out for us going into the season:

Desmond Howard:
Louisville to win Big East
FSU to win ACC
OU to win Big 12
Michigan to win Big 10 (shocking development)
USC to win Pac 12
LSU to win SEC
FSU over OU for National Championship
Denard Robinson to win the Heisman (also incredibly shocking)

Kirk Herbstreit:
Pitt to win Big East
FSU to win ACC
OU to win Big 12
Michigan St to win Big 10
USC to win Pac 12
Bama to win SEC
FSU over USC for National Championship
Matt Barkley to win the Heisman

Lee Corso:
Bama to lose 2 games
Texas to make a BCS Bowl
Ohio St to win a national championship in 3 years (he said write it down!)
Louisville to win Big East
FSU to win ACC
OU to win Big 12
Mich St to win Big 10
USC to win Pac 12
Georgia to win SEC
USC over OU for National Championship
Landry Jones to win the Heisman (same for the third year in a row)

You may have noticed something peculiar in these picks.  Even though the SEC has won the last six national championships (and last year BOTH competitors were SEC teams), none of our three experts picked an SEC team to win it all.  They didn’t even pick an SEC team to PLAY for the national championship.  I find this to be absurd, especially with how much the voters get aroused by SEC football.  Good luck with these predictions guys.

I’m also proud to say that Jennifer’s picks will be returning to the blog this year.  We are very excited to see how my girlfriend stacks up against the cream of the crop as well as the rest who make vast fortunes being very mediocre at picking wins.  Last year she took the rankings by storm and put up a 66.67% winning record coming in late to the game in week 7.  I cannot tell you how excited she is to get a full season under her belt, and continue to make Todd Mcshay her bitch.  Here is her preseason predictions, which will be HEAVILY scrutinized as the year goes on.

Jennifer’s Picks:
Pitt to win Big East
Clemson to win ACC (Dabo Swinney don’t give a crap about that)
WVU to win Big 12
Mich St to win Big 10
USC to win Pac 12
LSU to win SEC
WVU to be a sleeper for national championship
USC over LSU for national championship
Landry Jones for Heisman

Check back next Saturday.  We are having an ALL DAY EXTRAVAGANZA for Week 1 and will be live blogging from 7AM Central until the clock at the Toledo-Arizona game says zero.  Also, we will be monitoring our sources and posting hot picks all week from all your favorite and most hated personalities.  Good luck this season.
