It's that time of year again, the time where training camps start, Fantasy Rosters are drafted and the time where you head down to where your favorite teams training camp is.

Ahhhhhhhh. Its Football Season. Here is my Collage football Ranking's going into the season.

1. Florida Gators

Reason: With Tim Tebow coming back for his senoir season you know its gonna be a sucess. The Gators are the fastest team in the country and with Urban Meyer the Gators look to be heading to another BCS Boewl Game.

Key Departure: Percy Harvin WR  - Harvin was a fast speedy guy for the Gators, used effectively in reverses and  kick returns.

Key Arrival: Jelani Jenkins OLB-  Jenkins, the 2nd best linebacker recruit, is a rangy prospect who will give it everything he gots for the Gators every snap.

Must-Watch Game: October 10, @ LSU-

2. Oklahoma Sooners

Reason: Hiesman winner Sam Bradford was the best offensive QB last year. The video game like offense of Oklahoma will give the BCS Title a serious run.

Key Departure: Phil Loadholt OT- Loadholt was key to all the time Bradford got in the pocket last year. He was considered the best at his position in the draft.

Key Arrival: Jamarkus McFarland DT- McFarland is explosive and gets off real fast at the snap of the ball.

Must-Watch Game: October 17 vs. Texas

3. USC Trojans

Reasons: USC fans don't be dissapointed that you guys lost Mark Sanchez, USC went out an recruited the top High School prospect Matt Barkley.

Despite losing alot of key players to the draft USC like always went out and recruited alot of good player, and with Pete Carrol leading the way USC should have another productive season.

Key Departure: Brian Cushing OLB- Cushing was a dominant force at linebacker for USC.

Key Arrival: Matt Barkly QB- Barkly, the top High School prospect in the country, is a true pocket passer and has great footwork. 

Must-Watch Game: September 12 @ Ohio State

4. Texas Longhorns

Reason: Colt McCoy is  coming back for his senoir season, look for Texas like last year, to always find a way to win. 

Key Departure: Brian Orakpo DE- In his collage carear Orakpo had 132 tckls, 22 SK's, and six forced fumbles. He one siz awards last year and was argueably the best defensive end in the draft.

Key Arrival: Garrett Gilbert QB- He will be a good backup for McCoy next year, he has great feat and a good arm.

Must-Watch Game: October 17 vs Oklahoma

5. Utah Utes

Reason: Utah surprised many last year with their 13-0 run, look for them to try and do it again as they have the basically the same roster as last year.

Key Departure: Paul Kruger DE - He origanly sighned with Utah as a QB and developed into a defensive end, Kruger was on The Mountain West All American Team in 2008.

Key Arrival: Brian Blechen QB - Blechen has great size and is a great athlete at the QB.

Must-Watch Game: September 19 @ Oregon

6. Alabama Crimson Tide

Reason: Wont be as good as they were last year but Julius Jones should have a breakout year and lead this team to a good bowl game.  

Key Departure: Andre Smith OT - Smith was a great blocker to John Parker Wislon and was a 2008 AP All American.

Key Arrival: Dre Kirkpatrick CB - Kirkpatrick, the 4th best high school prospect, is very athletic and has excellent coverage skills.

Must-Watch Game: November 11, VS, LSU 

7. Ohio State Buckeyes

Reason: This might be one of the best teams out there. Losing Chris 'Beanie' Wells was a huge loss but they have gigantic potentiol in Terrell Pryor.

Key Departure: Chris 'Beanie' Wells RB - Wells was a hiesman canidate last year before he got hurt but put up great numbers for Ohio State.

Key Arrival: Jaamal Berry - They brought this guy in to replace Wells, he is really explosive and has once every ten year kind of acceliration.

Must-Watch Game: September 12 vs USC

8. Penn State Nittany Lions

Reason: Joe Patterno is coming back at age 83, and Daryll Clark is a great QB . Look for this team to win a championship for one of the greatest coaches of all time.

Key Departure: Aaron Maybin DE - The All American was great for Penn Stae and was one of the top DE's in the draft.

Key Arrival: Miles Dieffenbach OC - Dieffanbach is very versitale and can play all positions on the line, should help protect Daryll Clark.

Must-Watch Game: November 7 VS. Ohio State


9. Oregon Ducks

Reason: Oregon was good last year finishing 9th in the rankings last year. Using two QB's look fo Oregon to be good.

Key Departure: Patrick Chung S- He was a guy that played every day for Oregon he holds the record for most games played on Defense.
