It's an interesting Top 5 this year. Clemson, Alabama and Georgia are the known commodities and are obviously going to be tough to beat. Oklahoma and Ohio State could go wither way I reckon. Ohio State have had a full refurbishment with new head coach, whole new defensive staff and only 4 returning starters on offense. I think they are a smoky to be #1, Justin Fields looks like he's going to be a star, J.K Dobbins will be the feature back and even though a lot of the same players are there it's encouraging that the defense will be under completely new control. They also have a pretty good schedule compared to the last 2 years.

Despite being on espn in America
National broadcast
Neutral site
1st and 11th winningest teams since 2000
And espn Australia can’t even put Boise State vs Florida State @ Jacksonville on watchespn

2nd point
Why is this years fcs kickoff terrible teams?
(Combined 10-12 from last season)
Yeah, name recognition they’re good. But it’d be like playing Florida State vs usc being the showcase game to kickoff the season.
After last years seasons, nobody other than their own fans would really be keen

3rd comment
I’m not confident vs Florida State. Breaking in a new qb (either chase cord, a red shirt sophomore who’s missed a lot of time with an injury, hank bachmeier, true freshman and #6 “pro” qb in last years class, or maybe even trey smith, redshirt freshman from Jacksonville) and rb (but we and Georgia are rbu)


But most importantly, under Bryan Hardin, it’s felt we don’t turn up vs p5 schools.
2014 - 13-35 vs* ole miss
2014 - 38-30 vs* arizona
2015 - 16-13 vs Washington
2015 - 56-14 @ Virginia
2016 - 31-28 vs Washington State
2016 - 38-24 @ Oregon State
2016 - 12-31 vs* Baylor
2017 - 44-47 (3ot) at Washington State
2017 - 23-42 vs Virginia
2017 - 38-28 vs* Oregon
2018 - 21-44 @ Oklahoma State
2018 - 0-7^ vs* Boston college
*neutral site
^game cancelled after 10 minutes of play

Felt good start 5-1 early on, but 1-4 since with weather stopping I think being 1-5.
I have no confidence in Harsin. Just hopefull our new defensive co-ordinator is a little more aggressive then Avalos was (hint hint, auburn will destroy Oregon’s defence). But by all reports Florida states offensive line is terrible. So we’re expected to get pressure on a 4 man rush (there was a stat I saw that they had 2 yards rushing before contact last season. How Is that even possible)

All power 5 conferences schedule the same way. (Acc numbers skewed due to Notre dame agreement)

This Florida team is 9-3 at best they won’t beat Georgia, they’ll struggle to score vs Lsu (but they might be good enough on d to make it a 10-6 type game) and will struggle to keep auburn to sub 4tds.

Throw in games vs Tennessee, Missouri, and I can’t believe I’m saying this, Kentucky. these guys realistically would be lucky to even be Bowls eligible. They need to go 7-5 because only 1 of their 2 fcs games count.

I was rooting for Miami late in the game because the sec ooc schedule is so weak (what’s the best team the conference as a whole plays this year besides clemson?)

How the f**k are Florida a top 10 team.

This is why i hate early season rankings.

good god this game has been hard to watch.
Not playing pre-season games will do this. It was terrible to watch.

The Canes will be better, and you can't see them giving away so many fouls from here on, it was down to lack of game time.

Florida playing Miami, isn't a hard OOC game?
