The crew from 97.1 The Fan tackles the week's biggest sports questions.

Tony Castricone Mike Ricordati Milan Jordan Ted Holbrook Lindsay the Fan Girl What's your prediction for the BCS National Championship Game? Alabama by 10. SEC > Big 12 Alabama takes care of business, 31-24. Mark Ingram shows everyone why he's the Heisman winner. Texas, 38-21. The Longhorns defense is too good, and the Tide's Mark Ingram will suffer from the Heisman Jinx. Roll Tide, 27-17. Alabama's rushing attack will wear down the Longhorns. Alabama, 28-17. Alabama has a defense that can keep Colt McCoy in check. What was the best part of Ohio State's Rose Bowl victory? The knee-jerk reaction by the national media that OSU is some great national power again. Pryor playing a big game. This could be the first step in a very big 2010. They played well on both sides of the ball, giving fans plenty of optimism heading into the 2010 season. Everything. It was a huge relief to get a BCS victory and gain momentum for next season. It was the first time in four years that the Buckeyes didn't break my heart. How far will the Bengals go in the NFL playoffs? I think they'll beat the Jets, but I don't know beyond that. I'm pulling for 'em, though. They'll beat the Jets, but after that, the party is over. Week 17 notwithstanding, I think the Bengals will beat the Jets, but lose in the second round. They will beat the Jets but lose in the second round. Out in the second round. What's your local sports prediction for 2010? I will crush the Columbus Marathon! (Nothing else interesting comes to mind.) Bucks go undefeated, play in yet another BCS Championship Game next season. The Buckeyes play in a BCS bowl, men's hoops squeak into the Big Dance, the ladies make a deep run in the tourney, but the Blue Jackets miss the playoffs. Terrelle Pryor wins the Heisman and takes the Buckeyes to the National Championship Game. Eric Mangini goes away.
