to look out for next year from each major conference.
ACC- North Carolina
Big12- Oklahoma St
PAC12- Arizona St
SEC- Ole Miss
Edit: I have been informed that N'Western is ranked. As shocking as that may seem, I checked and it is true.

Northwestern (9-3) is ranked #20 in the BCS and #21 in the AP.
Since they're in the big10 it kust feels that they're outside.
As sad as it is that we are playing in the Rose Bowl and aren't ranked, Wisconsin will be pretty good next year or at least improved.
If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting
You're in charge of picking a B1G team then!
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
It's on next season
I considered them, but I have no faith in Maxwell.
Is Bell coming back?
They have one of the best defenses in the country and can't possibly be worse on offense next year. And their schedule will be much easier. IMO MSU's biggest issue for next year is the OL. Maxwell is solid, but needs time to throw. The OL didn't give him very much of that this year. And a good OL will make life easier for whoever steps in to replace Bell at RB (my guess is he's gone).
He was just a sophomore this season.
They can't get worse I imagine.
For a ball control team like that, a bad OL is disaster.
You guys should send them a couple of your freshman and signees.
Is USCw ranked? If not, I would say them for the Pac.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
I thought about them as well, but they just baffle me too much to count on them. Arizona St should definitely get better. IMO, there was no reason USC was as bad as they were this year and I am concerned that there may be a bigger problem there.
With the limitations, I really have to take a look at their depth concerns for next year and see where the holes are at and how much that will hurt. People in the SEC don't give the PAC12 their credit, but that is a tough league and a team with a weakness can be exposed by a number of teams.
USC's starters are on par with Oregon and Stanford, no doubt, but when you get to the bulk of the schedule, your conference teams know your weaknesses and an injury or 2 when you are already short on numbers can lead to 5 loss seasons.
It's simple bad coaching for USC.
I'm not buying Arizona state but I like Arizona they have a lot of starters coming back, just have to find a QB next year it shouldn't be that hard considering the offense they run.
People have been calling for UNC to be awesome since Mack Brown was there.
Arizona loses Scott and their D is boo boo.
ASU could be really good as long as Taylor Kelly isn't their QB. If he is, they will be in the 4+ loss range.
Taylor Kelly my biggest problem with ASU.
Arizona has K. Carey, Austin Hill and most of O-line coming back, in Rich Rod system with those weapons QB shouldn't be a problem.
I agree about the defense.
I like North Carolina too because of Coach Fedora and I think they are evaluating really, really well. He knows when he is doing IMO.

NW is literally 2 plays away from being 11-1.
Michigan and Nebraska got lucky against them.
Gotta remember the 2 best teams in the B1G are ineligible this year.
Maryland was 3 ACLs and a Lifsranc away from being 9-3. Next year they could be the darkhorse in the ACC.
You are putting ASU ahead of USC as a team to watch out for?
I would put USC and Washington as teams to look out for next season, that are not currently top-25 teams.

I made a lot off money betting for Northwestern all season
