Oh, dios mio, putting the champs at 6th place in the division is harsh. But who knows, this division is tough to predict. Anyway, both national championship - teams may not come from this division in the end (i am looking at those brutal lizzards from Duke, and to those Clemson terrors... and of course into the mirror! Smile )

I want to read your write up about the other conferences already!!!

NCBB Season 30 Preseason Coach's Poll

Another season, another chance for programs to claim eternal glory with bowl victories! Here's the rundown of the top 10 teams heading into this season...on paper, at least:

10. Mz State Bull Dawgz (FBC)
A somewhat forgotten program, the Dawgz had a successful inaugural campaign but were largely ineffective last season. Heading into their third year, the potential is there for the team to get even better after just a few games. They may make a little bit of noise by season's end, but odds are, they're sure to be a force to be reckoned with next year in their senior seasons.

9. Kentucky Burn Ban (FBC)
Stuck in the toughest conference, Kentucky has quietly won three straight lower-tier bowl games, and now has an experienced team heading into their critical fourth year. With eight seniors at first glance, this team has one last shot to get a more illustrious bowl bid before hitting a tough rebuild. But with the experienced blockers ready to cause some damage and two Ag4 hobgoblins to worry about that 'ball thing', they may leave a mark or two on the season (recall it was this team who knocked off U-Dub in the last week of the regular season).

8. [NCBB] FlaSt Delfinoles (SCC)
The only second-year team on this list, the Deflinoles got the nod over others because they already have seven blodge players after just ten games. What does that mean? They have a 'spread the wealth' philosophy that may not produce a lot of award winners...but it may very well lead to a lot of victories. If they can keep developing this young squad, there's no reason the 'Noles can't become a feared team in a short time.

7. Oregon Waterfoul (FBC)
Yeah, we're ranking them low despite the fact they made the Rose Bowl with a minimal team last season. But after they (finally) update their team and graduate two players, they really don't have much left. Whether or not it matters is probably a moot point by now.

6. Pepperdine University Slaves (SCC)
Perhaps one of the few teams in the conference that can challenge UNAM, the Slaves head into their third season after a successful five-win campaign. However they were slapped back to reality a bit in their bowl game, a 1-4 loss to a pissed off U-Dub squad. If Pepperdine can learn from that defeat, greater things may yet be on the horizon for them.

5. Texas E n' M Banshees (Big Beast)
A bit of a low ranking for a Rose Bowl winning team, but the current roster doesn't scream 'contender' like some of the others. Will great coaching and solid tactics be enough to offset any potential talent deficiency? Probably.

4. U-Dub Elfskies (Big Beast)
The Elfskies, as well all know, were in prime position for a title shot heading into the final week of the season; back-to-back losses against rival Clemson and upstart Kentucky thwarted those plans. Still, they rebounded nicely and won the Orange Bowl, and now return a full roster of pissed off elves. With six freshman elves to provide depth and potential, this team could be loaded by season's end. Whether or not they'll be able to finish the job this time remains to be seen.

3. UNAM Pumas Malditas (SCC)
Two-time runner ups, UNAM has made three straight title games (a feat that mayhaps only Oregon has accomplished, and I don't think they have) but have yet to carry over their regular-season dominance into the championship. Still, they're clearly doing something right, and while this team currently looks more 'solid' than 'spectular', odds are they'll be in the running for a fourth straight season.

2. Clemson Terrors (SCC)
A VERY high ranking for a team that only went 3-3-3 last season, but this potentially great squad seemed to snap out of their funk in their final two games: a
soul-crushing upset of rival U-Dub and a victory in the Killer Lite Bowl. If THAT team shows up, led by Hammer contender Dorian O’Danger, there's no reason this ranking will seem outrageous by season's end.

1. Duke Blue-Green Devils (FBC)
The reigning champs have several players still recovering from the title game and/or the afterparty, so their season opener may prove difficult. But with the entire team coming back heading into their senior seasons (eight at first glance), the Devils have a chance to pull off the rare 'repeat' in the NCBB. Can super-skink Dave Brown carry the program to 'legendary' status?


There you have it folks! The FBC appears to be a 'gauntlet of death' yet again, with four teams in the preseason top 10 (Howlson and Notre Dame were also in consideration...this conference is DEEP). The SCC may not be a 'one team show', as both Clemson and Pepperdine will look to challenge UNAM's three-year stranglehold on the conference. And the Big Beast may be top-heavy, but with both last year's Rose and Orange bowl victors residing here, at least they have something to brag about.

Can any of these teams live up to their potential? Will a dark-horse team not listed above make a surprise run? Could Season 30 possibly provide us with as much late-season drama as last campaign?

There's only one way to find out! Best of luck to everyone this year.

Nice writeup, thanks! Smile

Short message to the league from our headquarters: "Challenge us? Who? We got Sir. William Marshall! It's over! We got the highground!"

https://fumbbl.com/p/player?player_id=12251600 Seriously, never had such an awesome Freshman, now in his Sophomore year, he has been voted team captain. I am sure will not only fill former captain fat werewolve Eduardo Flojo's footstepts, he will make us forget that lazy wolve... Smile

Bro-hio is taking the preseason snub and using it as motivation.
