Default 2019 College Football - Week 0!

It's game week! A couple of compelling games for "Week 0" in Miami v. UF and then Sumlin's Wildcats travel to HI.

I just drove 2370 miles (over 3 days) and listened to quite a bit of national CFB talk. A couple of stats/narratives that came up that I found interesting is...

1. In 25 of the last 26 seasons (2011 the exception) a team starting outside the Top 25 has finished the season ranked in the Top 10.

2. Since 2002, at least one team starting the season ranked in the Top 10 has finished unranked in the final poll.

Who would be your mostly likely candidates for each scenario this season?

Finally. I hope we can focus on current football now instead of paper tigers and recruiting where certain teams think they are better than everyone else.

Again.....the 247 composite is where it's at. Rivals is the 3rd most reliable sight.

AP poll isn't out yet so I can't answer the questions. Very interesting though.

I agree TCU will finish in the top 25 if not the Top 10. Also see A&M finishing outside the top 10 and maybe 25 because of the schedule they have. Not that they are a bad team but that schedule is grueling. ND is always over ranked

BAMA outside the Top 25.
Tua comes up gimpy legged by game 5.


Syracuse inside the Top 10.

I am ready to play some games.

I would give Utah a good chance coming from unranked to ending in the Top 10.

I think FL falls out of the Top 25.

Mark it down boys

I agree with you on Florida but I've always liked BAMA more, even in this kind of guess.
So with CZAR'S approval I would like Florida outside the top 25.

A&M has more potential than Va. Tech this year. From the little I’ve read, it may be lucky Va. Tech wins six games this year. Hope that is wrong.

Incorrect.

It is widely regarded as the top sight.

The composite IS an average of the top 3 including Rivals.

Still no word on which freshman will be starting QB for Auburn.
Legacy, Bo Nix or Cam-clone, Joey Gatewood.

Don’t care who wins, I just want Steele's D to live up to the hype.

Tigers play 6 of the preseason top 12 teams and open with a motivated Oregon.

Auburn might actually be good…and still go 7-5.
That’s hard on a liver.


Took my boy to tour Auburn’s natatorium and got a pic at the stadium.

Why would anyone watch a football rerun when you know the outcome? Oh wait... that is why you watched it. First time you won against LSU since joining the SEC. You may want to tape it and place in a time capsule.

Lmao the sad part is they’ve publicly on these threads stated how many times they’ve rewatched it.... i don’t think I’ve ever rewatched a game that i didn’t play in. Wouldn’t be shocked if there wasn’t record tattoo sells with “74-72”
