I know it's just the pre-season, but HEY.

Football is going on again!

Anyone beyond excited?!

There is a game tonight Saints vs. Bengals - which I don't care about the Bengals at all, what a crap team, but oh man, just the fact that football has started again, I'm sooooo thrilled.

Talk about it!

I gotta get back on my bike and get to a bar with a TV for it.

Very happy but also sad that Tony Gonzolez left our team. Big fan. Like rip my heart out...

We do fantasy football here. Not into pre-season but waiting for the real stuff. Pumped about our QB(kiss our butt, NE..lol)

Man U didn't look too convincing against Birmingham just now.

Lets see how Liverpool does against Sprus as both are tipped to be in the top 5 this year. But I am certainly curious to see how Man City does with all of their acquisitions...

Of course I'll be supporting Hearts when they face Dundee tomorrow...

Hey! Where's the love for college football? Please tell me there are other college fans in here!

I'm actually planning on having vegan college football Saturdays at my place this fall. I'm an LSU alum and fan, so I will be making gumbo and red beans and rice to represent south Louisiana proper as we will have a good "bounce back" season.

I think we have a shot at beating out Bama and Ole Miss for the SEC West title. It should be a three team race. I think Ole Miss, while pretty good, is overrated. Bama, otoh, is not. They are very good. We have a pretty brutal schedule this year (playing the four strongest teams in SEC that are not LSU -- UGA, Florida, Ole Miss and Bama), so it will be tough going, but I'm hoping for a prestigious bowl game this year.

GEAUX TIGERS!!!

On the NFL side (I live in St. Louis), look for the Rams to be much improved this year. I mean it's hard to be worse than we were last year (only the Lions were worse!), but I think we will make substantial steps in the climb to mediocrity this year. I'm hoping we win 5-6 games -- that seems realistic since we should actually have an above average offense. Our o-line is legitimately good, and we have Stephen Jackson, who is very good. Bulger is an above average qb. There are some question marks at receiver, but overall, the offense will be able to score, and keep us in a lot of games.

Not too big of a NFL fan but I'm a huge college fan as well! Born and raised in Nebraska so I'm a Cornhusker fan all the way.
But hey we have your old coach Pelini..big expectations from him this year. Went 9-4 his first year coaching us. I'm soooo ready for the season to start! Sept. 5 cannot get here any sooner!

uh hello yeah. I think LSU will knock out Ole Miss pretty easily - but Alabama will put up a stiff stiff fight. That will be a great game to watch.

Saints won 17-7.

Vegchica13: yeah I'm expecting good things from the Huskers, but they are in a tough conference. It might take them a few more years to challenge for the whole Big 12, and Mizzou and KU are both tough, so it will be hard for them to take even the division.

Kenickie: I would not say that Ole Miss will be "easy." They are good, and nothing to sneeze at this year. They should enjoy it wile it lasts though. This is their last real shot for some time to come.

We saw the Giants at training camp this week but they may not be here next year so it may be the last time. I probably won't be watching a lot of football this season, but my father is a big Browns fan so I know I'm going to hear about it.

Very tough conference. We play OU and TT again this year but this time at home at least. I think we have the KU game easily, they had a good run in 2007 but I think that was a fluke.
The Mizzou game we play there on a Thursday night so it will definitely be tough BUT they lost several of their starters so I still think we have a good chance. I am pretty optimistic but you never know until that first game. We are preseason favorites to take the North. We shall see!

let me rephrase - the ole miss lsu game will be exciting to watch. but i'm on lsu's side mos def for that game. i think lsu will beat them with a point margin- maybe of 3 to 7 points. with alabama, it could come down to 1-3.

I like how you think. Beat Bama!

College football fan only. Having attended two universities with good (usually) football teams, I usually watch so much football on Saturdays that I'm burned out on it by the time Sunday rolls around, so I skip the NFL.

Looks like my Georgia Tech team is the favorite in the ACC this year. We had a good season last year, given that that it was the first year for the coach and the completely new offensive setup. Hopefully, it'll be even better this year.

Well I normally rooted for the Eagles, but due to the whole Vick thing I'm not supporting them this year. I figured I'd pick a random team to go for this year. I'm going with the Detroit Lions as they're an underdog


My fiancee is a HUGE Cowboys fan, but I can't bring myself to root for them
