    2007 sleepers

    South Florida - They return nearly everyone and finished last season very strong

    Oklahoma St - If they were in any other conference, they would be a preseason pick to win, instead in the Big 12 South, they are projected 4th

    I agree OSU is a sleeper... but that is really pushing it.

    I agree on South Florida.

    I think TT will be better than people think.

    Well didn't USF add the services to DMac? So their new coaching staff is bound to add improvement.

    Re: 2007 sleepers

    Great news for the 20,000 - 25,000 fans that actually attend the USF games!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: 2007 sleepers

    One of my sleepers would be Colorado. I think Hawkins is a really good coach. I can only hope that their fans and players somehow develop some class in the process.

    Re: 2007 sleepers

    I am just glad Buffs fans continue to pick on Nebraska more than the other North teams.

    Re: 2007 sleepers

    doesn't anyone think we will be the sleeper? And by sleeper, i mean winning 6 or 7 games. probably not on the scale they were talking about

    Re: 2007 sleepers

    If we can find a decent o-line, I think we can win at least 6 games.

    Re: 2007 sleepers

    I think we've found a decent O-line...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Re: 2007 sleepers

    texas aggies will be really tough this year with their stable of running backs. i got bradley stephens to visit dmac and tony alford and dmac offered a schollie only after watching 10 seconds of film.soon as iowa state offered him,franchione from a and m offered him.the aggies are 3 deep in good backs and i expect stephens to pop some yards on someone after he rushed for over 8000 yards in high school. the aggies have goodsen and javori lane who is a tailback at 270 lbs and 4.5 in the 40.
    mack brown is having trouble with his freshmen -4 of them have had grand larceny sticky fingers.
    the okies will be tough as they have one of the best freshmen quarterbacks in the country coming in from new mexico-the landry kid. i expect the okies to win the big 12 south and the big 12 championship. the aggies may give them a good run. i think we have a good chance of upsetting texas.
    the red raiders have the best passing qb in the big 12 -graham harrell.i pushed that kid to mccarney-why in the hell didn't mccarney recruit him.amen

    Re: 2007 sleepers

    i hate to say it, but the hawks could go 10-1 (of course the clones beat them). besides playing in Ames the only other game they probably will not be favored in or near an even spread is @ Wisconsin. They may have the easiest schedule of any bcs conference school.
