CFN Says What? 2013 B1G Previews from CFN

Scene: Imagine (because I am afraid of SBN copyright policy) Gob Bluth, a crazy look in his eyes, shirt unbuttoned, with a large knife between his teeth, prancing about on stage.

Stage Direction: Europe's "The Final Countdown" starts, increasing from a whisper to a earth shattering volume.

Are you ready?

Just about a month until real football and I know what you’re thinking; what does College Football News (CFN) think about my favorite B10 team this year? No, that wasn’t the number one question in your mind? Too bad, because here is the answers and the previews for every B10 team, including for the new guys.

First off, here is the prediction for every teams overall record this year. Interesting enough, they have already changed their minds on some of these since they first published this article (but they don’t note that the sneaky bastards). Some changes where needed because they had both teams winning/losing the same game, on others they just changed their minds. So keep in mind the info I will show below will reflect what they said as of 7/29/2013 per their "2013 Big Ten Preview – Schedules & Picks" article (same link as above).

Second, individual links for each team. I will list this in order of their predicted record.

Note: Some of this I find crazy, but all predictions are crazy at this point. Preseason should (and is) be the season of optimism.

So what do you think of these predictions or CFN itself. Earlier this year GoAUpher (I think) told me he didn't look at CFN much anymore because they have been sloppy, and with their initial post I saw some of that (oddly, 3 different websites that I looked at all had major errors on their prediction pages, such as playing the wrong team or playing the same team twice in one year). Still I think this is a good site to look at every week during the season, just take it with a large helping of salt.
