    ESPN.com: College football mock draft

    Looks interesting:


    "It's time to separate the haves from the have-nots. Follow along as ESPN.com writers Pat Forde, Ivan Maisel and Mark Schlabach thin the herd from 120 FBS teams down to 40 in a live mock draft.
    For more information on how this new world order will shape up, click here for Forde's column.
    The writers will have five minutes between picks, and selections are at the sole discretion of the writer. Forde gets the No. 1 pick, followed by Schlabach and then Maisel."

    Badgers come in at 18. Still no Squawks.

    Re: ESPN.com: College football mock draft

    the fact that Notre Dame came in before Utah and Boise State indicates that this is just another way for ESPN to push that they don't know football, just that they read their own hype.

    Auburn at 19:

    "This would qualify as my leap-of-faith pick, because I'm counting on (cough) Gene Chizik to sustain what Tommy Tuberville built this past decade on The Plains. From 2004-07, the Tigers were 42-9 -- and that included a 13-0 season in 2004. I know this much: if Chizik isn't winning big in a hurry, someone else will get the chance. That's the ruthless Auburn Way."

    Re: ESPN.com: College football mock draft

    What I don't understand is if these picks are supposed to be what's best for the game of college football, I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that Boise State and Utah are not good picks.

    Actually that's a pretty bad comment.

    Top 10 finish, actually have a winning bowl record against the SEC in the last 10 years, BCS appearance, two (legitimate)heisman hopefuls.

    This is the same reason we get no respect. ESPN doesn't care about what happened with you more than 2 years ago unless you happen to be USC, OSU or ND

    That's a ******** comment, and I'm not being a homer in saying that. Last season would be considered an average/down season when compared to some of Iowa other seasons this past decade.

    Agreed, but this is just a publicity stunt by ESPN. They do garbage like this every year. It's a lot more about making money than it is covering sports.. but then again, that's pretty much what ESPN is about.

    Actually last season was good when compared to their last 10. There have been what... 2 better?

    Re: ESPN.com: College football mock draft

    The whole thing really is a joke. These are the same people that think that unless schools like Michigan and Miami rebound and become respectable again that the Big 10 and ACC respectively will never be legitimate conferences again. How about the rest of the teams in those conferences playing some legitimate football? That might earn them more respect than just the same one or two teams winning the championship every year...

    You could have stopped at the first sentence, really.

    In reality, Michigan could have gone 8-4 last year and that wouldn't have changed things much in that poll.
