We wrapped up another conference in the never-ending 2012 season preview series yesterday: Conference USA. With last year's best teams (Southern Miss and Houston) replacing both coaches and key personnel, last year's disappointment (UCF) returning just about everybody, and most of the bottom teams changing head coaches, there should be all sorts of transition to be found this fall ... which makes considering the off-the-field transition the conference is currently experiencing. Give me UCF and Tulsa in the conference title game, and a year after I predicted UCF to disappoint, I'll take the Knights to win the title.
