I think both Colorado and UNC (mentioned earlier) are programs on the rise, but neither team is loaded with enough talent to win 10-12 games this year.

This is true. It would probably take a miracle to see Colorado win 10-12 games considering their youth and strength of schedule,which is insane.

Again, this column takes into account the fact you could realistically take over a program and win 10-12 games in the first year. With Michigan State, you have a team that is returning just 11 starters from a team that went 7-6 last year. I would bet MSU is a lower-half Big 10 team this year, the lack of experience could really hurt them and will definitely hurt them in NCAA. They aren't a bad team to start a dynasty with (really what team is?), but they aren't a team you should be able to take to a National Championship in a year or two if you are playing on the right level with the right settings.

Yeah, Colorado has four extremely tough games in a row (WVU, FSU, UT and KU). I honestly would not be suprised to see CU win a couple of those though. The home field advantage in Boulder is bigger than what it should be due to the altitude. You saw the Altitude take over last year during the CU/OU game and CU capitalized and took the win. If I were WVU, I'd be extremely scared of the game in Boulder. And in NCAA, that's a tough 4 game stretch, especially for an NCAA 09 newcomer.

Not a bad suggestion. My big deal with the choice is I have traditionally taken over teams with new coaches, but I really would like to try to take a stab at the top of the football world. It will be a tough decision for me, but I have never played a dynasty in the ACC so it'll be new territory either way for me

Ask Miami, WSU, Idaho (x2), and Oregon State what they think of Dennis Erickson. The following coach at each school had to clean up a giant mess Erickson left (he's a lot like Neuheisal, but worse). Arizona State will be getting theirs soon enough now that graduation rates affect scholarships.

FYI, Chase Daniel should be fairly easy to replace in the game. There's a true freshman qb that comes in at 84 on the roster. I assume it's Blaine Gabbert, the #1 pro-style quarterback of the 08 class according to Rivals.

He should be around 87-88 by the time Daniel leaves.
