    Article for the P12 is from Jan. I’m not convinced.

    They have it wrong for the ACC Coastal. While I think Miami will win again, no way will Va Tech finish that high with everything going on with them. And since Ga Tech is coming to Pittsburgh, I think Pitt finished second.

    We have Orgeron - how could they put us second in the west, behind Auburn no less? We're going to win the league.

    We beat South Carolina Missouri and Tennessee all last year, but sure they improved and we just sat on our ass and did absolutely nothing . :rolleyes: Typical lazy ass journalism. Nevermind UK finishing 2nd and 3rd last two years and only improving each season.

    I have a hard time seeing Penn State finishing 4th in the East. They host Ohio State, Michigan State, and travel to Michigan. Damn the East is gonna be a blood bath.

    I predict:

    1. Ohio State
    2. Penn State
    3. Michigan
    4. Michigan State
    5. Maryland
    6. Indiana
    7. Rutgers

    Id probably put yall at 4th behind NC State. I think UofL is going to take a step back this year but next to last? No. As much as I hate Petrino he can coach.

    I, for one, would also like to say how appalled I am that Athlon has Alabama below Auburn and LSU.

    Big 12 is way off. Texas won't be anywhere near second. Seventh or eight is more reasonable.

    I don’t think a lot of people are giving Mizz enough love. I wouldn’t count them out, but the East is probably Georgia and then ugly step sisters fighting for the second slipper. West the Iron Bowl will decide.

    I agree. Without Lamar it's going to be a rough year. But not that rough. Petrino is a total scumbag, but like you said he can coach.

    I don't disagree necessarily, but a lot of that stems from how hot they came on at the end of the season. Before that stretch Odom hasn't exactly inspired fear in any of the rest of us East teams. Not saying he couldn't have finally turned the corner with them, just saying who's to say that wasn't lightning in a bottle and they play more mediocre football this fall. Teams usually regress to their mean over time. If Lock and that offense pick up where they left off then yeah...Id say they'll give a lot of us hell. Missouri usually has some solid NFL caliber defenders so it will be interesting to see how Odom parlays last year's hot streak into success this season.

    MIzzou will have an offense, especially a passing game, to contend with the SEC's best. The question is whether it will have a defense.

    Wow Bama three in the west section of the sec...does this mean we get four sec teams in the Playoff so that they can justify including Bama?
