Washington at #8 seems like a bit of a reach.

Oklahoma is too high...but then again what did I expect? They're always considered to be a pre-season top 5 team.

Just many folks here would be satisfied if we finish the year ranked 4th in the nation?

Playoff would be a nice accomplishment. That said if you told me I could lock in a top 4 finish with a semifinal loss I would pass. This has been setup for a huge year and I am not ok saying its not a championship year. If we don't win it this year we likely have to wait 3 more years to be positioned where we are now. I can see this year being similar to 2011 except for the finish. This team is hungry and I can't but help think Miles wants it more as well given what almost happened last year.

FSU, Ohio State, Washington too high (I do endorse Washington as a top 15 team though). Michigan too low. Everything else is good enough. Louisville and Nebraska should finish with 10 or more wins
