Official NCAA 2010-11 Season Thread

27 August 2010 - 09:25 PM

All of you soccer fans, MLB fans, NBS fans, and NFL fans go home. Its time for some NCAA football action! Season starts in 6 days!! Who is your team? Whats your pre-season top 10? I'm a huge Clemson fan, and despite the loss of the best RB in the nation last year (who didn't get nearly enough credit), we have a very promising year ahead. I am PUMPED. I missed all of last season because I was in Iraq, I can't wait to get there on gameday of opening day.

My top 10 is looking like this:
1 Alabama
2 Boise State
3 Florida
4 Texas
5 Virginia Tech
6 TCU
7 Oklahoma
8 Nebraska
9 Miami
10 Ohio State

Florida, Texas, and Oklahoma all lost the star QB last season so we'll see who steps up. Florida has the best chance with Brantley. I think USC and Ohio State are overrated EVERY year, thats why you see Ohio State at #10 and USC not on the list. VaTech is going to turn heads this year, so is Miami. Being a fan of an ACC team, i'm in turn an ACC fan. I think a lot of people will be surprised with the ACC this year. Up until yesterday UNC was looking like a national powerhouse preseason, but more NCAA violations are coming and its not good in Chapel Hill right now. This is how I think the ACC and SEC will turn out this year:

SEC
East
1. Florida
2. South Carolina
3. Georgia
4. Kentucky
5. Tennessee
6. Vandy
West
1. Alabama
2. Auburn
3. Arkansas
4. LSU
5. Miss St
6. Ole Miss

Florida and Alabama could EASILY be topped this year. Florida will get beaten by either South Carolina or Georgia, Alabama can get beaten by either Auburn or Arkansas. So these could always change. South Carolina, they have something brewing. Steve Spurrier is way to optimistic this year, kind of scary. Auburn is my dark horse for the SEC.

ACC
Atlantic
1. Clemson
2. FSU
3. Boston College
4. NC State
5. Maryland
6. Wake Forest

Coastal
1. VaTech
2. Miami
3. Georgia Tech
4. UNC
5. Duke
6. Virigina

Of course I put Clemson up top. They are the defending Atlantic champions and my favorite. In all reality though, FSU could easily be up top, we will see. I don't see Miami beating VaTech, could happen but I doubt it. UNC would be higher without their off the field issues.

What to watch for during the season and my BOLD predictions:
-Miami will beat Ohio State on Sept 11.
-South Carolina will either beat Florida OR Alabama this year.
-UNC will give LSU a run for their money on Sept 4, possibly beat them.
-Florida State will beat Florida this year, and Oklahoma too.
-Va Tech will lose to Boise St on Sept 6.
-Nebraska will beat Texas for the last time in the Big 12.
-Lane Kiffin will continue to be the biggest Dbag in all of America, and prove to still be a terrible coach.
-Brian Kelly will fail at Notre Dame and the Irish will go on to another disappointing season.
-Rich Rodriquez could very well end up unemployed by the end of this year.
-Mark Ingram is once again the favorite to win the Heisman.
-Jimbo Fisher will be the savior of FSU football and a good replacement for Bobby Bowden.
-The Pac10 will be [garden tool] hum this year, whoopie Pac10 football.....
-Joe Paterno very well could retire.


You won't find the passion or rivalries any place else. NFL has nothing on this, its easy to lose when you still get paid millions....here its all about pride. ITS TIME FOR SOME COLLEGE FOOTBALL. ARE YOU READY?! LETS GO!!!

New Computer Build

04 July 2010 - 01:52 AM

So a couple days ago, my computer locks up (first time EVER) and on restart it starts getting screwy. Now I can't even boot to safe mode. I've tried and tried and tried and only thing I can come up with is video card or HD issue. So I figure, nice....easy fix. Well, then July 4th rolls around and so do all the sales. Well, lets just say I went with a full on upgrade. :D Took advantage of the sales and my Iraq deployment money and put together a machine that I intend to keep building upon over the next few paychecks. Heres my current and old setup:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Video Card: GeForce 8800GT 512MB
Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L
HDD: WD 500GB 7200
Ram: G.Skill 8GB DDR2
PSU: CORSAIR 650W
Case: Thermaltake Armor
OS: Vista 64bit

Heres my NEW setup:

Processor: Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 480
Mobo: EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR LGA 1366 X58
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
Ram: G.Skill Ripjaw 6GB DDR3
PSU: CORSAIR 850W
Case: CORSAIR Obsidian 800D
OS: Vista 64bit

I will use the DVD drive out of my old computer in the new one, as well as my 2 Samsung 24" widescreens. Future plans include: Adding more ram, however the Mobo reads sticks best in 3's so 6GB works for now. 12 soon maybe? Also would like to SLI another GTX480 and plan to run water cooling (whether I SLI or not). A new keyboard is in my future too. I'll try and post some updates once I receive all the parts and start building next week.

Multiple Monitors

12 December 2009 - 07:51 PM

Anyone else running 2 or more monitors on their computer? I just made the switch to 2 and WOW. 1 seems boring now. I'm running dual 24" Samsung 2494sw widescreens at a combined 3840 x 1080 resolution. Amazing, can't wait to add another to my setup already. Feel free to post your own pics and stuff, i'd love to see what other people are running. I'll add some more screens of other games as I get them.

Heres a picture of what I see in Runescape:

What did you pickup on Black Friday/Cyber Monday

01 December 2009 - 07:17 PM

Just curious what everyone scored for their computers?

I got a killer deal and went ahead and bit the bullet. I bought 2x 24" Samsung 2494SW computer monitors. Should be there when i get back from Iraq in about 2 weeks, I can't wait. I'll eventually be upgrading it to 3 total monitors in the near future for gaming.

Krieg's Bank - August 2nd

02 August 2007 - 07:32 PM

I'll will be leaving in 11 days to join the United States Marines. Thus, i must give up Runescape...at least for a while. I have sold all i could, or wanted to...to invest in some more rares so i could sit on them for a while, while i was gone.



My first rare came on Halloween when they dropped the masks. Had it ever since. And i've just aquired 2 Santa hats and a Robin set (hat/boots).



Let me know what you think. I think its turned out pretty well. Hopefully i'll find time later on down the road to play like i used to.



(Psst. Stuff at the bottem of the bank IS for sale. Like the bows/logs/flax/etc) ;)
