    I was thinking about some former elites lately and who would get back to premiere form first.

    I'm going to go with the Canes in my poll because they just brought in a top five class, they are in on almost everybody big this cycle and I think once he gets the kids he wants Shannon will tear it up.

    I'm going with the Buffs to be hot on their heels because of the new class and Hawkins is a winner in so many ways on and off the field. The current group of Buffs are super kids and will be a terrific base to build on over the next couple of seasons.

    I think the jury is out on Neweasel and the Bruins. He really hasn't proven much yet as a coach and they have a huge obstacle as long as Carroll is in town coaching the Trojans. Jury is out on Ham"n"cheesy and his Hucksters too although I do expect their defense to stiffen up considerably this coming season. Does this guy even have the personality to be a head coach?!

    Miami has the best access to recruits.

    I picked UCLA because I think Skippy will cheat.

    If I had to put them in order by who will return to elite status first, I would pick it like so:

    UCLA
    Bama
    Da U
    Buffs
    Nebraska
    Notre Dame
    Washington
    Syracuse
    Army
    Princeton
    Kansas State

    He's inheriting some great talent. I think UCLA will be in good shape come December. It all depends on who the QB will be. But I don't think he'll cheat. He knows this is his last chance.

    it is miami, but i am not voting for them, out of principle.

    ucla is going to be sorely disappointed with the skippy hire. petey owns socal.

    the fuskers are willing to do whatever it takes to win so they should begin to improve now.

    the Buffs are a big question mark, but as a fan, i have great hopes!

    Nice additions to my list there Dust.
    I think the Bruins success will be based as much on Norm Chow as it will Neweasel. I know the rivalry is big but SC is a tall order for anyone.

    Bama and Saban should be in the mix if he can keep the program out of trouble. What say you Charlie??

    I still go with the Canes first - lights out recruiting and I think Shannon does have the stuff

    Does anyone else think the Buffs are one more top 20 recruiting class away??

    BTW: It goes against my nature to ever forecast anything good for the :gun: "Biting Irish"
