ESPN released updated preseason Football Power Index (FPI) Rankings for 2017 on Thursday and pegged six teams from the SEC in the top 25.

Here is how the FPI is described by ESPN:

The Football Power Index (FPI) is a measure of team strength that is meant to be the best predictor of a team's performance going forward for the rest of the season. FPI represents how many points above or below average a team is. Projected results are based on 10,000 simulations of the rest of the season using FPI, results to date, and the remaining schedule. Ratings and projections update daily.

Saban's face reminds me of the heads that criminologists build to try to recreate what a victim looked like based only on a portion of their skull. Those models never really look human, especially their lifeless eyes. Doll eyes.
