UCLA had a pretty big year last season. They whooped Southern Cal and had a pretty good offense. Also beat V Tech like a rented mule in their bowl game, but yeah, #7 "seems" a little high to me too, Ted.

Gamecocks at #9 is a tad high, in my mind. SC has a lot to prove after losing Clowney and more importantly, QB Shaw, (who I think was vastly underrated.)     
The #2 guy Thompson has a better arm, but damn Shaw could ball. 

Well...looks like 'ol Notre Dame is ranked preseason....AGAIN. Roll Eyes  


 
They beat Texas this weekend.

...which ain't saying much, given the current state of the Longhorns team.
...and, they just barely beat 'em.

I don't think that matters too much honestly. Not having M Brown shouldn't be a crutch to winning games.
 
The entire coaching staff at UT has always been strong. For the last three years I believe UT has been on a decline.  Not that I pay much attention to UT's sports program, just something I have noticed while keeping up with OU, Texas A&M, Baylor, and Oregon on Saturdays.

That's totally unrelated to UT's problems this year. They lost their first game to mediocre BYU 41-7. First, they are without some of their best players, and they were in a rebuilding mode to begin with. Coach Strong has suspended a bunch of players from the team for various legal issues and/or violation of team rules. Second, they lost their starting QB, David Ash, indefinitely due to repeated concussions. Their backup QB, Tyrone Swoops, has potential, but he's very inexperienced and wouldn't start at most programs with halfway decent QBs. Due to his inexperience, UT is currently running a very vanilla offense. His personnel around him aren't exactly able to help him overcome his inexperience either. They have a weak O line and running game. Finally, with A&M's move to the SEC coupled with A&M and Baylor's success in the past couple years, Texas' recruiting has been way down and A&M and Baylor have been getting all the best TX high school recruits who might have otherwise considered UT.

...all of this working against them at a time when they're completely rebuilding a new system under a new coaching staff.

Texas still has to play Baylor, OU, K State, and OK State, and I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell they'll come close to beating any of them. They simply don't have the talent, and don't stack up well at any position. I wouldn't be surprised to see the horns lose to WV and TCU as well. Who knows; they might pull off an upset in one of those games, but I predict they will go 7-5, maybe 6-6 at best this year.

With the resources and history they have, I believe the Longhorns will eventually rebound. History says they will. Most quality programs have peaks and valleys. Given current realities, I predict their current valley will last at least a couple years, maybe longer depending on recruiting.

Rebuilding happens! My Gators sucked big time last year... this year may be a tad better (with Roper and a better O scheme) but likely will still suck. They have a hefty schedule, and their QB (Driskell) is hot and cold with flashes of stupidity. I wish they would have grabbed up Charlie Strong as he is a good coach. I'm sure Charlie will turn the Horns around in a year or two! Time will tell though.

Gators will definitely rebound in the not too distant future. Like Texas (the state not the team), Florida (the state, not the team) has an abundance of HS football talent, and the Gators have a winning tradition.

Mark is convinced Lame Kitten will be the next Gators coach, especially given that his wife is a diehard Gators fan.

I think I can speak for Mark when I say he's very excited about that possibility.

Right, Mark?

Well...let me start by saying this. 

I was at a bar in Knoxvegas, talking to a bartender/season ticket holding Vol fan, about college football, who informed me that he had a...(clears throat).... "friend on the inside of all things SEC" who stated that he knew for a fact that Kiffen would be the next head football coach for THE Florida Gators in the not so distant future. I choked on my happy hour hot wing after hearing this news flash. Down the Toilet 

To be fair....Kiffen is a very good QB coach with a pretty astute offensive mind set, so there's that. Do I want him to coach my beloved Gators?? HELL NO!!!! 
But my man love towards Wil Muschamp is waning....severely. Barely beating an admittedly improved Kentucky team in The Swamp, in the THIRD OT, is just not what I was wanting to see this year. 

Now he's got to go to The Tusk and play Saban... a bye...then on to Knoxville.....then back home to face LSU.
This is a tough row to hoe for most any team, let alone a team as psychologically "fragile" as the 2014 Florida Gators. He could easily go 1-2 or even 0-3 in this stretch. The Vol's smell blood in the water and are coming after them.  
Oh...and did I mention Florida has Mizzu and GA after LSU??? As much as I like Jeff Driskel, they need to set him down and play that freshman, Treon Harris kid.

Well stated Mark. I just don't think Driskel has the mental aptitude to be a successful QB at this level. I'm afraid this will be another embarrassingly poor year for Gator football. Bye bye Chump.

Ric, I think a LOT is gonna depend on what happens and HOW BAD it happens in Bammers Saturday. 
A good effort, but a loss, and maybe the Gators go to Tenn and beat a resurgent Volunteer squad. 

A Bama beat down Saturday and that's a wrap for Gator ball for this season. That last game was VERY telling from what I observed. The Gator's are playing to "not lose", instead of to win. You could see it in their eyes, especially Driskel and the offense. 
The team, the Florida fans in The Swamp, were all waiting for the other shoe to drop last Saturday night and there's no way a team like that, regardless of talent, can go play that brutal schedule and come out on the plus side, or maybe even.....even?? Whatever

Someone told me Alabama was playing some third rate school today… nearly a high school team…
They've got to start getting some better competition...

You heard correctly, Sir. Just another powder puff game on while on their way to yet another championship. 

Hey...this fan has NO illusions of an upset, but I must say, for the first time in quite a while, Bammers looks more "average" this year. At least to me. 
Bama is a two TD favorite at home today against my beloved team and will probably cover, but I think they will have to throw a bunch to score. Gator secondary is talented, but young. 

24-10 Bama. Dead

OK, here's the story.  You KNOW I don't really follow football that much.  My SIL's father is an Alabama fan, James is a Miami fan… His dad was telling me that Alabama was playing a third rate team, in front of him.  I didn't get it at the time… took it literally.  

NOW, I get it…

I'm a little slow but when I see it on the SEC channel, I understand...
