I believe it will be a team in a fertile recruiting area in a city or town that is easy to get to (this makes a difference for recruitment, attendance, fan support, media coverage, etc). It's tempting to say VT, because they are the most popular team in DC and in a growing southern VA region. But Blacksburg is out in BFE, and while they often take a few of the mid-Atlantic's best, they never take a critical mass. For years, UVA even out-recruited them (but rarely out-played them). Recruits just don't want to spend 4 or 5 years in sleepy Blacksburg.

I love Snyder, but Manhattan, KS just isn't going to draw a critical mass of recruits. It is easy to get to, though.

I'm tempted to say Oregon, as well, but I'm not sure if a team without a stellar defense has ever won a title. I can't think of one. The football programs at Oregon, Baylor, TCU, AZ don't emphasize defense; nor do they have a tradition/legacy of tough defense (save for the "killer bees" of AZ). I don't think any of those schools will win a title with their current coaches.

I like this question a lot. I'll go with one of the following:

Miss St.

TAMU (post-Sumlin)

Maryland

EDIT: A&M won in '39 (who knew?), but has had only one stellar season since (1992).  Maryland won it in '53, according to some polls. So I guess my guess is Miss. St.

I saw Shakira wearing see-through white linen pants with a purple thong underneath in the MIA airport once. She was coming back from Turks and Caicos. I repeat: I SAW SHAKIRA IN A THONG.  I stood behind her in the immigration line for almost 45 minutes. I was a gentleman and didn't gawk though.

Lisa was a little awkward today. But it's the off season. Maybe by September she'll be ready to get serious.

Whoa, I wouldn't annoit Herman as the best choice to take over for UFM necessarily. Let's see him sustain success at Houston and maybe one other school before declaring him the obvious choice. 

UF fans saw Muschamp as savior. A&M fans saw/see Sumlin as savior, but he's not going to competefor a NC anytime soon. TSUN fans see Harbaugh as a savior; maybe he is and maybe he isn't; he has a lot of work to do. I'll believe it when I see it.

Point is, we have no earthly clue who the most desirable coaches will be 5 years from now. Maybe Strong puts together a couple runs at UT. Maybe Mullen has sustained success at Mississippi St. Maybe Fickell or Beck or Ash is ready to step up. Just too soon to speculate, IMO.  

Then again, speculating is about all we have during the loooooong off season, isn't it?

We can talk about companies tracking u through your mobile phone another time. That is fascinating (and scary) stuff.

Cookies, pixel trackers and the like track your every move online. You should change your browser settings 1) to block third party cookies, 2) to delete session cookies every time you close your browser, and 3) delete your history on a 1-2 day rolling basis.  You will also want to do a search on your computer to locate Flash Player and disable cookie tracking there too.

I could go on, but those are the basics to dealing with companies collecting more data on you than you're comfortable with.

I wonder what university has the most Congressional medal winners. I know OSU has at least two, which might put us in the lead. Man, it feels good to be awesome.

First off, I'm saying prayers for you BD. Second, can u say what profession you intend to go into? Counseling may not be a show stopper like u think. DM me.if u don't want to state ur intended profession publicly.

Here's what to do: get a snare trap. Get her trapped nice and easy. Get a large kennel, a bunch of fruit and salad and the like, and put a collar on her. This should keep your girlfriend quiet while you go get the wolf.
