2009 FOOTBALL- Fearless forecasts

As the new football season gets underway in college this weekend and pro football (next weekend) it is time to look at things in a new way for many of the teams taking the field.
The Florida Gators are the defending national champions of college football after holding Oklahoma's amazing offense to just 14 points last January. It was the Gators' second national championship in three years.
Florida is the pre-season number one pick in college football and why not, they return a plethora of starters from last year's championship team, including former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Tim Tebow.
Rounding out the Top Ten (according to heftyinfo) is Texas, Oklahoma, USC, Penn State, Alabama, LSU, Virginia Tech, Ohio State and Mississippi.
The college rankings don't really tell a lot, because if a team is ranked high all season long and then loses late in the regular season, they pretty much can kiss an invite to the BCS Championship Game goodbye.
It will be another exciting season it appears in college football and it concludes come holiday season time in late December and early January with 34 bowl games taking place in a three week span.
The National Championship Game is slated for January 7, 2010 in Pasadena, CA with the top two seeds in the BCS poll battling it out for college gridiron supremacy.
Florida and USC is the call here to go for it this time around with the Florida Gators repeating (yes, repeating) as National Champions.
The NFL kicks off the 2009 season on Thursday, September 10 in Pittsburgh as the defending Super Bowl champion Steelers play host to the Tennessee Titans.
After previewing all 32 teams in recent weeks, the following breakdowns of the 2009 NFL divisional races is listed, followed by NFL Playoff predictions for the upcoming season.
