    They may have us starting at #113, but with the returning talent we have along with a coaching staff that should actually be able to use that talent instead of wasting it, I have to believe that we will be MUCH higher up the list by the end of the season.
    We had plain white pants, we had plain navy-blue shirts, a number on the front and a number on the back. We couldn't even put a stripe down the middle of our helmets. We used a strip of tape. ... Those kind of things screamed, 'TEAM!' - Erk Russell

    I also read the link for the article ranking coaching hires. Some of that was cut and pasted into the early rankings. I look at #113 as a floor more than a ceiling. Something would have to go very wrong to end up there.

    70% of the Sun Belt has a 3-digit ranking. 70%! Smh.

    FAU is so absurdly high. The best team they beat all year was North Texas and Troy beat them pretty easily.

    Guess that's the Kiffin effect.
    Don't choose to be annoyed. Choose to be amused.

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    True but they scored a million points in the process and don't forget they were 3-9 a season before that. So the projection is that they'll continue to improve. But yeah, thats high.

    No. That's reality. FAU broke like every school record last year and we're legitimately a damn good G5 team based on both the eyeball test and analytics.

    Agreed. When I saw “absurdly high” I thought i was going to find them around 10th or something. They will probably be a top 25 preseason team so this ranking was basically spot on.

    So Ark St is ranked higher than Arkansas, Kentucky, Vandy, Nebraska, Ole Miss and some other decent teams. Not saying they wont be any good but these rankings are not realistic to me. We are behind Old dominion for god sakes. FAU #27 What the hell.
