    Great news. Kiffins #1; Bama #2. UT with this special mention:

    This is not the best of times for the Son of Vince, whose wise-cracking, lawyerly act is beginning to wear thin as the losses have mounted. Taking over after Lane Kiffin bolted following just one year in Knoxville, Dooley’s Vols have totaled just 11 wins and one Music City Bowl appearance in his two seasons on Rocky Top. The cries have already started for Dooley’s head on a platter; a repeat of Years One and Two in 2012 and there likely won’t be a Year Four.

    My hope is we win 11 and he gets offered the job at UGA...but that won't happen.

    What dark god of old do we need to sacrifice children to for this to end? Lord knows the 8th is flush with babies right now.

    LSU is the clear number one for next year imo.

    I don't see Mettenberger fixing that offense

    USC has a rather easy schedule. ND and oregon at home. i can certainly see them running the table.

    That would be a gigantic kick in the orange nuts

    Alabama won't be NC contender good, but they'll be a top 10 team. They lose a ton off of the D.

    look at this joke of a schedule:

    09/01/12 vs. Hawai'i L.A. Coliseum TBA
    09/08/12 at Syracuse E. Rutherford, N.J. TBA
    09/15/12 at Stanford * Palo Alto, Calif. TBA
    09/22/12 vs. California * L.A. Coliseum TBA
    10/04/12 at Utah Salt Lake City, Utah TBA
    10/13/12 at Washington Seattle, Wash. TBA
    10/20/12 vs. Colorado (Trojan Family Weekend) L.A. Coliseum TBA
    10/27/12 at Arizona Tucson, Ariz. TBA
    11/03/12 vs. Oregon L.A. Coliseum TBA
    11/10/12 vs. Arizona State (Homecoming and Reunion Weekend) * L.A. Coliseum TBA
    11/17/12 at UCLA * Pasadena, Calif. TBA
    11/24/12 vs. Notre Dame L.A. Coliseum TBA

    Maybe they use to UW? Typically they lose their first road conference game of the year, but i can't see stanford pulling it off.

    The offense wasn't atrocious all year. Bama just completely exposed what was maybe the worst offensive gameplan I've ever seen.

    It wasn't really good either. They lose a few OL so that will hurt the run game.

    They won't be able to score 14 points and let the D raise hell next season.

    I would call that a decent OOC schedule, actually.

    well they play ND every year, but yes compared to south carolina or something it's pretty good. point is they probably don't play a ranked team till november.

    Tend to agree. Think the defense loses next to nothing, and the QB play can't possibly be worse.

    I think someone knocks an L into USC's loss column.

    Yeah I can't see USC going undefeated.

    They always seem to drop one game that they shouldn't i.e. Oregon St.

    true. UW could be trouble. At arizona for some reason has ended many pac-12 championship runs. But it's a doable schedule. I don't think usc will be anywhere near the best team in the country, but it's possible they will run the table
