Most over ranked team

Same rules, FSU won handily last season of course.

I'll take Miami at 8, Alex.

I think Auburn might be living on the glory of a couple of good games to close out last season. I'll go with the Tigers of the Plainsman and War Eagle variety.

I'll take Stanford.  I think for the first time in a long time, their defense is very suspect.  They go to Eugene, to South Bend, and to Seattle.  They'd have to win every other game, which includes home games with USC, Utah and Washington State, plus a trip to Tempe, just to tread water.  I could see a 7-5 type season coming their way.

what? They are ranked 14th. You need to get a new schtick.

not a bad pick. They lost a lot to NFL/graduation.
Going to be interesting to see how Jake Fromm adjusts from game manager to now being THE MAN where it'll fall on him to really drive that ship.

This is the most talented UGA team I've ever seen, which doesn't mean they don't lose games of course.  But their schedule is pretty easy comparatively unless someone turns out to be really good we don't expect.  They will miss Roquan of course.

It's not a deep study pick, merely a situational one:  UGA came from the woodwork to burst onto the grand stage, only to lose a lot of the important pieces.  Sort of like a wave - it recedes after it breaks.  If UGA had been at a more elite level 2 years ago, regression would be less likely, of course.

Yup, I see that, I have no issue with your pick, I was just noting the talent level as I see it in Athens.  They have been recruiting light out of course.

It has been happening for a while. Even with the imperfections of total offense/total defense, there's no denying it wasn't impressive for Stanford to finish #79/#76. It'll be interesting to see if they continue that slide or if Shaw can reverse it.

I know they are barely ranked but IMO LSU is no better than a 5 or 6 win team this year. Even with the transfers in to shore up the QB stability there’s just been so much chaos and incompetence on that side of the ball that fixing it goes beyond fielding a dependable QB. Coach O is the worst kind of coach to have near an offense because not only is he clueless but unlike Les Miles he has zero sense of hiring a coordinator who can be counted on.

The problem for UCF here is how hard they would fall with a loss.

I was thinking that Fiesta Bowl team was undefeated.  My point was only that they aren't a flash in the pan.  0-12 was far more shocking than 13-0.

maybe not. but i'd also think 8-5 is more likely than 13-0 again. and 8-5 for them is a decent drop from where they are.

Iowa, I have them 20 spots higher (20 vs. 40)

Northwestern is 19 spots higher (19 vs. 38), Boston College 16 spots (21 vs. 37)

I believe those are the three largest.

I would think 8-5 would be a massive disappointment.  I think 13-0 is more likely than that.  11-2 vs. 13-0?  Ok.
