Looks like Florida, LSU, and WVU, right?

Same rules, FSU won handily last season of course.

I'll take Miami at 8, Alex.
Miami looks like a decent pick at the moment, the only top  ten team to lose, though PSU "tied".

The fact that Miami doesn't have a medium range passing game.. at all...  I think they are my over ranked team.   Decent defenses will give them trouble.

yes they are no longer in the top 40 but Arizona looked terrible. They can't run the ball or pass it deep because the OL is a sieve. Tate only had 8 carries (some were sacks) for 14 yards (which I think was his per carry avg last year) and they only called a designed run for him like 2-3 times the whole game. The D isn't much better (if at all) either.

UCF
Probably unlikely they go undefeated again (everyone has a bad game). Toughest games on their sched are Pitt, Cincy, and at Memphis. They should be favored in every game by at least 7.

Ga Tech is favored @ UCF

Is it possible for a team to be unranked and have no expectations assigned to it, and still be overrated?

Not really. We have a bad habit of making overrated a really wide-reaching word.
That team would be considered ... bad.

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.
Nailed it!  :sign0137:

So far, no obvious Big Busts.  LSU and Florida have looked decent so far.  Kentucky is a surprise on the upside of course.

Notre Dame has passed most of its tests already, so has Clemson for the most part.  The ACC is not looking very strong to me this season.

Washington looks pretty solid, which makes Auburn look competitive also, which in turn makes LSU look good.  That was a big game for perception.  Penn State looked like a possible flop after Appy State almost did their thing.  Georgia looks a bit suspect to me, we'll find out more soon enough.

Still plenty of opportunities for the Wolverines to plummet.

Auburn may be the biggest bust so far, and Penn State is on the cusp depending.

There are three teams that might qualify; Auburn, Washington and Wisconsin. They are interchangeable.
