2017-18 College Gameday Season Preview!

And we are back.  As of this morning we have officially survived another offseason with the kickoff of Florida A&M vs Texas Southern.  However, we all know it was open season with the return of College Gameday an hour before those two teams kicked off.  Our Gameday crew was back spitting hot takes and wild ass predictions for this season.  These are usually wildly inaccurate by the end of the season, however they reminded us last year Kirk Herbstreit predicted Clemson over Alabama in the championship game on the season preview.  Without further adieu, here are this year’s official preseason predictions (along with hot picks from @GamedayJen), so bookmark this page and come see us again in January.

2013-14 College Gameday Season Preview

Ladies and gents, boys and girls, children of all ages… one week from today I can confirm that the College Gameday boys will be COMIN’ TO YOUR CITAY!  And that means one thing and one thing only:  College Gameday Season Preview!  That’s right.  Lee, Kirk, Chris and Desmond sat around this morning making their bold picks for the season to come.  In case you missed it last year, they all did quite poorly with their preseason picks (don’t worry, we will be reviewing that this week for your pleasure).  As for this year?  Here’s how things are shaking out.  The guys all think that Texas A&M is better with one John “Football” Manziel.  Kirk and Des said 10 wins with, 8 wins without the Heisman trophy winner.  Lee said 10 wins with, 6 wins without.  They all had BIG years for Stanford predicting the Cardinal to win the Pac-12, and some of them predicting even bigger things!  Frankly, there weren’t a lot of big shocking predictions for this year.  Desmond Howard predicts Ohio State will not go undefeated, and also predicted Michigan will win the Big 10.  This would be shocking if he wasn’t the #1 Michigan homer on the planet, and the #1 Ohio State enemy.  Anyways, read up below for the full slate of picks.  Each one had a BOLD PREDICTION OF THE DAY which I have highlighted below, because these things are important.  We also welcome back Jennifer, who has not only decided to put up with this blog for another year, but actually verbally agreed to marry me during the offseason, so let us all rejoice.  Enjoy!
