We interrupt the LeBron News Network to drop some college football knowledge on you.

Florida State is 11-2 to repeat as national champion in odds posted by Las Vegas sportsbook Bovada, followed by the usual suspects Alabama (6-1), Oregon (8-1), Auburn (9-1) and Ohio State (10-1).

The next 10 are: UCLA (14-1), Georgia (16-1), LSU (18-1), Michigan State (25-1), South Carolina (25-1), USC (25-1), Baylor (28-1), Florida (33-1), Wisconsin (33-1) and Ole Miss (40-1).

Other teams of interest: Notre Dame (40-1), Michigan (50-1) and Clemson (66-1).

As for the ACC title, the odds go like this: FSU (2-5), Miami (11-2), Virginia Tech (10-1), Clemson (12-1), North Carolina (12-1), Louisville (15-1), Duke (18-1), Georgia Tech (25-1), Boston College (50-1), Pittsburgh (50-1), Virginia (50-1), N.C. State (66-1), Syracuse (66-1) and Wake Forest (150-1).

Of course, Alabama is favored to win the SEC title at 3-2.

Here are the odds for the rest of the conference: Auburn (5-1), Georgia (5-1), South Carolina (5-1), Florida (9-1), LSU (11-2), Ole Miss (16-1), Tennessee (18-1), Texas A&M (20-1), Missouri (25-1), Mississippi State (33-1), Arkansas (66-1), Kentucky (100-1) and Vanderbilt (250-1).

Bovada also posted odds for the division titles in both the ACC and SEC and odds for the other conferences.

Now back to LeBron all the time.

Auburn and Florida State will not surprise anyone this year with no huddle , fast tempo. Saban has been working on that defense since last year and that is why Pruitt had every Defensive Player lose weight, so they could play faster and more plays back to back without getting tired. 

For some reason Georgia seems to play Auburn better at Auburn but I think we can get by Auburn this year at Home but Alabama will beat Auburn this year like a rented mule. Saban always circles one game he wants more than the rest and you guessed it for this year. AUBURN. My money is on Saban for more than 10 points.

FSU may win it again, if they can keep their stars away from seafood and motor scooters.

SEC has to sit back and watch the ACC rule again? Oh the humanity!

Not a chance FSU can beat Alabama much less win the MNC....

Fsu's loaded- they may be better than last year -- they should beat Alabama by 10 + in the title game

Kentucky 2.5x more likely to win the SEC than Vandy? That seems like a bit of a stretch.

Wonder why people do not believe you about being a Buckeye and not Tech.  Buckeyes are 10-1 and you only mention Georgia at 16-1. And, if by chance you are a Buckeye, the Gators stole a good one out of Ohio (Cleveland area) today in top 100 LB Jerome Baker.  Beat your supposed Buckeyes and Tennessee for his commitment.

I hope Mason realizes he is not NFL material and also realizes that all Georgia needs out of him this year is good team management . No turnovers. Actually this will be the first year in 4 that I feel like we can use a screen pass to help advance the ball or not have a turnover.

We'll see what the class rankings look like especially is Bug Eyed Muschamp is escorted out of Gainesville.

Ohio State fans are hesitant to declare wins over Florida A&M, Buffalo, and California in July, much less a win over a quality team from November through January. So, yes, I understand why you are so resistant to talking about National Titles. Buckeye fans assumed such a thing in November, December, and January of 2006.....if I recall correctly.  Something about winning the game of the century and then insultingly relegated to playing a lowly SEC team named the Gators.  How did that one work out for you, there sloopy?

Yall also don't declare them in January, Mid-November is another story...

Muschamp isn't going anywhere, sloopy.....other than into Ohio to sign a Cleveland LB that has been a life long Ohio State fan.  Opps.  And Meyer wanted to win this one, but didn't.
