    Michigan has the talent to compete, the offense just needs to get it together.

    SEC...

    Florida. They are playing 2 1-AA's and if they can upset So Carolina at home they could get
    6 wins. (They still won't be bowl eligible (must beat 5 FBS schools) but they would have
    upped their win total by 2.

    The parade will be two miles long down University Avenue. I may even attend as a show of
    State Unity.

    Funny seeing an FSU fan making fun of anyone for shitty scheduling in order to get to 6 wins.

    I think Arizona has a shot to win 9-10 games this year.

    He sucked at defense and lost his position to a running back.

    Even Alan Bosley could start for Texas Tech on D. Plus he’s a good dancer. So he could make the team simply for that.

    Yeah, because we were required to open the season with Alabama last year...

    Sheeeeeeit, at least we play OOC games outside the state of Florida, unlike UF...

    I'm looking for PJ Fleck at Minnesota to have a big 2nd year. I'll also be following what Scotty Frost does.

    I think Arizona could surprise depending on the development of the QB and what Sumlin does with the offense.

    I hope to see West Virginia make a nice run in the Big12 and deep deep sleeper I have Taco Tech with a top 3 finish.

    For the ACC I don't see a darkhorse, unless you count FSU beating out Clemson. Also, never count out Bobby Petrino, when you sleep on Louisville they can surprise.

    SEC I can't pick anyone until they show me they have a QB. You could say Miss St but the talent isn't around him. If they didn't do it with Dak and Mullen I don't see it happening.

    Group of 5 I hope we see BYU get its head out of its ass. A good BYU team seems essential to a good cfb season :noidea:

    Nebraska?

    Have you folks checked out Nebraska's 2018 conference schedule? It's brutal. The Cornhuskers could very well finish with a 3-6 conference record in 2018, despite having an improved team.

    2018 Nebraska Cornhuskers Football Schedule


    I believe Frost will eventually turn around the Nebraska program, but methinks his first season could be rough.

    Again, look at the Nebraska 2018 conference schedule...check out the three crossovers, and the locations of all the games.
