BS-Damus Revisited College Football 2006 Review

Phil Steele tries to predict the college season with a set of pre-season ranks based on his care review of every angle. BS-Damus made up some prose some with carefully considered teams and others just to fill up the space.

First BS-Damus:

In heart of the farmers
Near the equinox of the year
A team from the large decade
Shall fall to the center of America

Both Minnesota and Iowa fit this prediction--+1

A violent wind will swirl
Those that sow wheat and corn
Will serve those of the bovines
Scandal shall befall the twelfth

Big 12 have a lousy season but no really big scandal +1/2

A storm born of Sahara
The solstice will arrive
The sea bird shall fail to soar
Will not reign on the coast

Miami to a tee (hurricane come off the west coast of Africa). BS-Damus is smart enough, unlike the rest of the college sports world, to remember the ACC divisions.--+2

No more an ocean of pax
One of the decade will rise
A desert will bloom for one
Another will rue the autumn

The Pac-10 came out pretty much as expected with the Arizonia schools actually worst than expected. BS-Damus blames an east coast bias.--+0

For foes of the Roundheads
Dispare and disgrace they know
Course will change suddenly
Joy to be found at the terminal

The Cavilars (fought the Roundheads in the English Civil War) of UVA had a tough season with an early lose to the lowly Pitt Panthers but salvaged the season a late win against Miami. Although they finished 5-7 they finish better than expected.--+1

Canine to growl heard by all
Through flight and hurry
The bite cannot draw blood
Pack finds strength in defeat

The Washington Huskies growled loudly about the officals in their defeat by Oklahoma.--+1

Hatched of a humble nest
Upon wings of iron one soars
Knows no fear on the earth
High beyond where known

What the hell was BS-Damus thinking? He blame a combination of pain pills and Colt 45.--+0

Slip silent through the grass
Stealth and patience in design
Teeth upon neck causes death
Feast from weakness of the herd

BYU had a taste for Duck this Christmas.--+1
Total +7 1/2

Doctor Damus will tackle conferences net summer if he has finished rehab.
