It's early March. Most teams haven't kicked off spring practice yet, recruiting classes are still being finalized, and everyone, including the college football players, is focusing on the NCAA tournament. In other words, it's a perfect time to through out the safe and sane and go all dumb and dangerous by trying to pick every winner of every Big East game. Check out the 2011 schedules and picks.

It's early March. Most teams haven't kicked off spring practice yet, recruiting classes are still being finalized, and everyone, including the college football players, is focusing on the NCAA hoops tournament. In other words, it's a perfect time to through out the safe and sane and go all dumb and dangerous by trying to pick every winner of every game more than five months in advance.

So here's how this works. 1) We're going off our beliefs about how good we think the teams are going into spring, ball, and of course we can and will change these up a bit as things happen. We'll do this all again during Preview 2011 time. 2) Remember, there have to be upsets somewhere. No one could've ever seen Texas being so bad last year and no one would've ever picked Jacksonville State to beat Ole Miss. 3) Remember, timing is everything with schedules. Getting a week off at the right time can change a season and lead to a huge upset.
