"I must have missed your squad in the Vegas top 50"

Yup. that's why I posted that. UCF is the hunter and not the hunted this year.

funny how CBS Sports thinks UCF is the best team in Florida. Yet, gators ranked higher.

Gators have a new unproven coach in with the SEC with a bunch of players left, recruiting and transfers weren't that good, and a ton of question marks.
UCF has a proven SEC coach. Majority of players are returning. Transfers from Bama, Auburn's best WR and best freshman DL, Gators best TE and tons more. Also, beat the Gators the most recent bowl game. We will see though. Season starts soon!

I was wondering about Ole Miss and Lane. Did he lose a lot of talent?

Lane only has something like 4 offensive starters returning, and only 1 is a "skilled position" player, a WR. While his offensive scheme might look like The Keystone Cops, it is actually extremely complex and will take the transfer QB (from USC of all places!!) a while to run well.

Plus, Ol Miss plays in the SEC West ...... easily the toughest division in college football

Marc Daniels Column: All That Is Good In College Football
By
Marc Daniels, Scott Harris
Aug 19, 2022

We are a week away from the start of a new season in college football. We have spent much time in the off-season focusing on the issues the sport faces. We are consumed with NIL,pay-for-play, collectives, realignment, billion dollar TV deals, the future of the NCAA, the breakways of the P5 or the Super 2, an expansion of the playoff. It goes on and on but today we put aside all the issues and negativity and focus on all that is good in the great game of college football.

Here's 100 things that make this such a great game...
