Posted from their website. It would be our highest ranking to begin the season since 2006.

My luck w/the Irish 20-6...GO IRISH!!!
I'm surprised we aren't higher than 8. But I can understand it, people seem to think there will be a drastic dropoff with our D. Hopefully they're wrong. Manti was here for the three years before this one too, so it can't be all him.

Two time Poster of The Week, 2011 and 2013.
UGA is losing there entire team. This guy is clueless. I MEAN EVERYONE IS LEAVING but there RBS
I didn't like what he said about Bennet Jackson going pro. That is the first time I heard that and it literally depressed me. Has anybody heard any rumblings about this situation??
Not gonna happen. I think we lose Eifert and Wood early and that's it.
This guy is out of his mind. Just reading Oregon, LSU, Georgia, Florida, TAM and hearing who they lose and still ranking them that highly makes no sense. I know, I know, the SEC and Oregon will just reload. They do usually to a certain extent...however, LSU, UGA and Florida losing the majority if not ALL of their defensive playmakers, and trying to rely on D like usual does not make for a good cocktail. I am going to wager that two of these three finish outside of the top 10 for sure.
And I am interested in seeing how Manziel copes with the losses of his two bohemeth OTs and his safety net WR.
Using this as a guide to next year’s schedule, it looks like Oklahoma and Stanford will be the two toughest games as they are fringe top 10 just like us. Our two traditional powerhouse rivals start in the 20s after #1 and #8 this year. Arizona St appears to be a fringe top 25 team too and Michigan St. is in the 26-35 range.
Temple, Purdue, Air Force, Navy, Pitt and BYU appear to be easy wins on paper (they won’t be of course. I’m sure two of those games will be close in the 4th quarter).
We all know none of this means anything but its fun to look ahead. #isitJanuary7thyet?
Amazing. Alabama "misses" Florida, Georgia and South Carolina again in the SEC East and get some combination of Kentucky, Missouri, Vanderbilt and Tennessee. Actually I looked and they get Kentucky and Tennessee to go aslong with OOC games against UT-Chattanooga, Va Tech, Colorado St and Georgia St.
3 time POTW;
I may not be pretty, but I'm fast.....
