I don't see why Clemson is ranked to high. They have a Heisman candidate at QB, but that's about it. They lost a pot load of talent to the draft last year. Most of the guys they lost were core players and primary contributors. Besides the QB, they have a lot of role players, not game changers. IDK, maybe it's something I'm not seeing...

I think Ohio State is too high along with Stanford, but that's about all. This Ohio State squad might only lose 3 games thanks to JT Barrett coming back, but this team eerily reminds me of the 2010 UF football team that made Meyer quit. He lost a shite ton of NFL talent that went 48-7 with 2 national championships, 2 SEC championships, 3 East titles, 3 BCS bowl wins, and 4-0 bowl record in his first 4 years. Despite still having a ton of talent on the 2010 team including a 5 star QB, two 5 star WRs, two 5 star tackles, an entire 5 star DL, and 3 of 4 being 5 stars in the secondary, he still went 8-5 overall and 4-4 in the SEC. That was with the 1st, 6th, 7th, and 1st overall recruiting classes going into that year. Oh also he has a 1st year DC and 2nd year OC this year when he had a 1st year OC and 2nd year DC in 2010, so experience in coordinators are about the same.

I keep seeing Tennessee in or near the top 10 in a number of polls. Maybe it's just me but I don't see it.

Loaded on defense with a top 2 round 2016 eligible draft pick at each level (reminiscent of LSU's 2010 defense). Four of five on OL returning after having an inexperienced bunch last year. The WRs they have now are more talented and have some experience, and they have a triple headed rushing attack in the backfield. A senior quarterback with almost 2 full years of experience in the system. Lost 4 games last year by a combined 16 points and all in the last minutes of the game. Those games were against 2 playoff teams (one national champ), the East champ, and a tough Arkansas team. If they can develop a deep passing game they could be undefeated going into the SECCG
