2011 College Basketball Predictions – Big 12 Football Predictions 2010...

2011 College Basketball Predictions Big 12 North Predictions 1. Nebraska Cornhuskers – Nebraska appears to be on its way back to national prominence after coming oh so close to upsetting Texas in last year’s Big 12 championship game. The Huskers are off to the Big Ten in 2011, but until then they will terrorize the Big 12 with their ferocious defense. 2011 College Basketball Predictions 2. Missouri Tigers – Mizzou expects to have an offense that will be able to challenge the highly touted Nebraska defense, but the Tigers must visit Lincoln this season, giving the Huskers the edge in the Big 12 North. 3. Kansas State Wildcats – Bill Snyder stepped right in preaching fundamentals, and it instantly made the Wildcats a Big 12 North contender. Kansas is solid enough defensively, and take good enough care of the football on offense, to be very competitive again in 2010. 4. Iowa State Cyclones – Paul Rhoads was just what the doctor ordered for the Iowa State football program, bringing in a passion and energy for the job that had been missing since the school parted ways with Dan McCarney. He was able to lead the Cyclones to a bowl win in year one, leaving fans very excited about the future of the program. 5. Kansas Jayhawks – It figures to be a tough season in Lawrence with playmakers Kerry Meier and Dezmon Briscoe and QB Todd Reesing no longer...

Golden Nugget College Football Lines – 2010 College Football Predictions...

Golden Nugget College Football Lines If last season’s Rose Bowl performance against Oregon is any sign of things to come, the Ohio State Buckeyes could be on their way to a sixth straight Big Ten title and maybe even a national championship. The Buckeyes bring back a lot of talent on both sides of the football, and they should benefit from a kind schedule. Ohio State gets all four of its non-conference games in the horseshoe, and, of those four, Miami appears to be the only challenge. Late in the season, either Penn State or Iowa could potentially trip up the Buckeyes, but they would still likely earn a share of the conference title with just one loss. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor is a gifted athlete at the quarterback position who appears ready to enter Heisman Trophy discussions. The Buckeyes also have NFL talent at every level of their defense with guys like Cameron Heyward and Ross Homan expected to take their games to another level. Golden Nugget College Football Lines Offense – The offense starts with Pryor, and it will succeed as long as it allows Pryor to make plays with his legs as well as his arm. Pryor led the Buckeyes in rushing with 779 yards in 2009, and he scored seven times on the ground in the process. I really like it when the Buckeyes roll him out, giving him the run pass-pass option. Add talented running...
