2008 College Football Preview

Brace yourselves, its time to start the college football season! Who will come out on top? USC, Ohio State, Oklahoma? Kidzworld's got the answers!

Teams to Watch

No doubt all eyes will be on Ohio State this college football season. The National Championship runners up two years in a row, the Buckeyes are hoping three times are a charm. Ohio State is stacked at nearly every position, and unless a total meltdown happens, they should be the last team standing. Oklahoma should also challenge for National Championship. Quarterback sensation Sam Bradford is reason enough for the Sooner faithful to have hope. Like every year, USC will make a run at the title. The Trojans have made a BCS Bowl game for six straight years, and have a running back named Joe McKnight who some are hailing as the next Reggie Bush. One team to keep an eye on is the Georgia Bulldogs, who have one of the most talented rosters in college football including QB sensation Matthew Stafford. Other teams to keep an eye on are Arizona State, BYU, Florida, Wisconsin and Missouri. Some sleeper teams that could make noise come bowl season are North Carolina, Oregon State, Utah, Ole Miss, Boise State and University of South Florida.

Players to Watch

As mentioned earlier Oklahoma's Sam Bradford and Georgia's Matthew Stafford are must sees at the quarterback. Pat White from West Virginia and Chase Daniel from Missouri are also Heisman Trophy candidates. Other quarterbacks in the mix are Max Hall from BYU and Zac Robinson from Oklahoma State. Florida's versatile QB Tim Tebow is a favorite to win the Heisman Trophy. The running back field is also very deep this year. Aside from USC's Joe McKnight, there is also Ryan McCants from Oregon State, Chris "Beanie" Wells from Ohio State, Knowshon Moreno from Georgia as well as freshman sensation Darrell Scott from Colorado. Other top players include Michael Crabtree, the wide receiver from Texas Tech, George Selvie, the defensive end from South Florida and Ohio State corner back Malcolm Jenkins. Some under-the-radar players to watch out for are Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones, Alabama line backer Rolando McClain and Da'Quan Bowers, the defensive end from Clemson.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
