BlogPoll Roundtable #8

1. We are now 1/3 of the way through the season and things are starting to shake out. With that in mind, who are your picks to win each of the BCS conferences, as well as your choice for an at-large berth from a non-BCS league (none is an option)?
ACC- Virginia Tech
Big East- I will preface this by saying that the WAC deserves this bid more than the Big East does. South Florida
Big Ten- Michigan State
Big 12- Texas
Pac-10- Southern Cal
SEC- Florida
At-Large- Georgia

2. What team currently out of the
Top 10 (AP or Coach's, doesn't really matter), has the best chance of ending up in the title game?
Alabama and Penn State. Alabama is becoming a sexy choice out of the SEC so I'm going to go with the slightly homerish selection of Penn State. Penn State you ask? Minnesota and Ohio State at home, at Michigan in what appears to be a down year, Illinois away, Purdue and Wisconsin at home and then at Michigan State. Is at a long shot? Hell yeah. But if Penn State can manage to get past Minnesota and Ohio State, a Top 10 ranking is likely. I will guarantee one thing though. If Penn State starts 6-0, the Nittany Lions will be spending New Year's Day in the Sunshine State.

3. When you're watching a game, what type of fan can you absolutely not tolerate being around?

The casual fan who asks too many questions. I don't mind casual college football fans in general if they ask only a couple of questions but the people who ask a question after every other play are extremely irritating.

Bonus: A sizable portion of Michigan fandom is in full meltdown mode (myself especially). Some have chosen to sequester themselves for this weekend's game against MSU to avoid scaring children, causing long-term psychological damage to those in the near vicinity, and most especially to avoid jail (I'm not saying this is me per se). Anyways, we need some help. Give us some ideas for replacements for LLLyd Carr (3 L's for the number of losses per year, and no O this year either). Assistant coaches, head coaches elsewhere, etc. Please, give us something to look forward to.

Glen Mason (Minnesota), Joe Glenn (Wyoming), Jeff Tedford (Cal), Tom O'Brien (Boston College), Bobby Johnson (Vanderbilt). I don't see Michigan going with someone without prior head coaching experience.
