    That would be New Mexico..."That record is dreadful, but Davie should allow the Lobos to improve in the immediate future. Having 14 starters back and hosting both Southern (FCS opponent) and Texas State (homecoming game) gives them a legitimate chance to get at least two victories."

    BTW anyone know where WSU/Leach lands on the list? This is one team and Coach that really piques my interest, but oddly, not enough to wade through a liist of 124 teams! :D

    I think UNM has legitimate shots against

    Southern, NMSt, TexasSt, ColoSt, and UNLV. So maybe four wins? :eek1 Two to three is more likely.

    Leach is an interesting character indeed. Read his book, I too will be following WaSU.

    Don't know why SC and GA seem to get so much love over in the East. LSU and Bama seem to prove that it takes defense to win out in the SEC.

    Get ready for some smack talk.

    it seems to me that every time Georgia has been ranked high, they've underperformed. They lose a few big games, people start calling for Richt's head, and then they come back and do just enough to save his job. year after year, it's the same pattern. It's why I have a hard time taking Georgia seriously.

    SC could be contenders but they have a tough schedule. Garcia is finally gone :cry. They have to play Arkansas, at LSU, at Florida, and at Clemson. The problem is that damn Clemson game. Even if they win out the east (and drop a game to LSU and Arkansas) they'd still have to play clemson the week before the SEC championship. To me, they either lose that game and go into the SEC championship depressed or win it and go in hung over. Either way, I don't see them beating the SECW champ.

    That means in the east, it's down to Florida and Tennessee, and does Tennessee really have the depth? Florida still has a similar problem to SC because we have to go through FSU thanksgiving weekend, but Florida has two sleeper games the weekends before FSU. FSU has VT and Maryland. Even though the game is in Tallahassee, I think Florida wins. Florida State is like Georgia. Give them a preseason ranking in the single digits and they can't wait to drop a game to Wake Forest or Boston College. FSU won't be a factor.

    I think Florida goes to the SEC championship game and loses, and gets a trip to the sugar bowl.

    I'm with you on that prediction. I think people are seriously overlooking UF. Between UGA's underachieving HC and SC's overinflated ranking I think the Gators slip in. Oh and Tenner, they got a multitude of issues.

    Sept 8 at T A&M. Florida gets past them handily, we'll see. Of course, the next week at Tenn might prove to be a test. If Florida starts 3-0, I do agree their season will be good, not great, but good. :1drink

    UGA homer here and I agree 100%. If Georgia is expected to win 10-11 games they'll win 8. I'm ready for a disappointing season. :freaky

    Not yet, I haven't checked Yahoo yet but when it does start I'll put up its own thread. Maybe even sticky it. It would be fun to have more in the pool. Twenty or so.

    Plus we need more non SEC posters here damnit. Come on Pac 10, Big 12 represent. :deal
