The 2011 Florida Citrus Sports scouting season is in full swing after another successful kickoff dinner at Linda’s La Cantina steakhouse with featured guest FCSports guest Lee Corso. FCSports scouts started the day by reporting to the Varsity Club at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium and giving their views of the games attended from around the country from the weekend previous and the night was capped for some of the organization’s longstanding members, sponsors and dignitaries at the annual event in east Orlando.
Speaking with Paul Kennedy of Sun Sports and Fox Sports Florida, Corso offered his unique opinions on all sorts of college football topics, from coaches on the hot seat to this year’s Heisman race to his picks for the national championship. The ESPN personality and long-time friend of FCSports took questions from the crowd and fired back with his trademark combination of wit and wisdom. For more details on Corso’s comments, check out the official Twitter accounts: @FCSports, @CapitalOneBowl and @ChampsSportsBwl.
Also at the event, members made their picks for the four teams that will play in this December’s bowl games in Orlando. The consensus picks to play in the Capital One Bowl were South Carolina with 57 votes and Nebraska with 31 votes. In the Champs Sports Bowl, attendees predicted South Florida (46 votes) and Clemson (27 votes) as this year’s matchup.
Now that two weeks of the 2011 college football season are in the books, early rumblings of BCS and bowl placement have begun. It’s shaping up for another great season in Orlando as the Capital One Bowl and Champs Sports Bowl receive four of the top selections in all of college football.
