do you feel have the potential to compete for a BCS Championship at least every 3 or 4 years?
I'll start with the SEC:
Tennessee (when they get the right coach)
USCe is borderline only when the East is down, but when both Florida and Tennessee are back, no way.
Also, I believe Tennessee is a lot closer to being back than people realize. That could be a downfall though that they might have just a good enough season to decide to keep Dooley around, much like UGA did with Richt.
UGA could be on the list up top, but they need to gut all participants in their athletic department. Their results in all major sports should be humiliating when you think about the recruiting pool they have for those sports. Plus, it is tough to add UGA and a team like Arkansas when they have such a problem getting past the top teams in the conference to begin with.
The more man meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be his world and the world at large.
Oh nvm....we are talking national championships....in the Big 10s case it's once every 10 years
Wisconsin, Penn State, and Michigan State? I guess I can understand Wisconsin but they are about to go back down.
10 years ago, Michigan, tOSU, PSU, and Nebraska.
This year nobody.
2-3 years from now and onward, Michigan and tOSU.
Edit: Iowa, Iowa has to be in there also, can't lose my cred with Hawkfish.

Any B1G fan that doesn't include Iowa loses all credibility.
I don't mean that teams will win it or be in the game, but have a program that is capable of a 11-1, or 12-0 type season every 4 years or so. To be still in the running come November from time to time I guess you could say.
When they aren't grossly mismanaged Miami and FSU compete every other year.
Mich St? And Whisky?

OSU, UM, PSU, WISKY and NEB

I don't see Tennessee coming back any time soon - compete at least every few years: Bama, LSU, Florida (maybe we will see)

Tennessee and Auburn? Really? Tennessee won't be great for a long long time and Auburn got lucky with Cam last season. They haven't proven to be consistent national contenders with Gene Chizick at the helm. What's Chizick's record without Cam? TIA
Knew it wouldn't be long.

The way things are right now? As in, the next 3-4 years? Bama, LSU, Arkansas, and UF. But things can change in college football so drastically in a short time it's hard to guess 8 years down the road.
If Tennessee had not lost Bray for an extended period and their 2 top receivers, people would be talking about them more coming into this year, IMO.
Chizick's record at Auburn without Cam is 16-10, since you asked. If people are too blind to see the talent that Auburn has coming up on their team, people are going to be in for a rude awakening in the next couple of years.
I don't think they are going to overtake Bama or anything, but they will blow past Arkansas and maybe even LSU if they don't watch out.
I am a Bama fan, but I can also look at it without the glasses sometimes. Besides, Nick Saban is 7-6 at Bama without Mark or Trent. Do you think one player make that much of a difference?
If Cam was at Auburn this past year, they would have still lost 2 or 3 games. The rest of that team was pretty good. They had a perfect storm of Senior in 2010, not just Cam.
Don't see it. When your talking champs the only ones every 3 or 4 would be LSU and BAMA. The other guys are maybe every decade or so
Come on man, wisky, PSU, MSU and Braska. Samattawitchu
I don't mean the teams that will win, but teams that have a chance to be in consideration. A team that every 4 years or so will enter November in the discussion.
From the B1G, for instance, I would say tOSU, Michigan St, and Wisconsin right now with Michigan right on the cusp.
Tennessee has the money to do it. Like it or not. Hamilton is gone and Hart is in. Hart will get this turned around.
have to agree with you
SC and Oregon. I want to say Stanford too, but I need to see how they do post Luck.
Edit: If Wilcox gets the D in order, UW may start making noise as well.

What sanctions? Our 75 are better than your 85.
Ahh, i see. Well in that case i'm just going to have to wait and see on Tenn. Not sure how they are going to end the funk they have been in with lots of other SEC teams picking up the slack
Who specifically are you impressed by/referring to. I'd like to get a non-AU opinion.
