A&M is my obvious choice.


Mine too. They're not going to sneak up on anyone this season.

Hm, I took a look at their schedule and it's actually pretty cupcake like. Still, I think they'll lose to at least Bama and LSU. I'll be rooting hardcore for Mizzou to finish them off.

I could see A&M being top 10, but I'd be surprised if Oregon, ND, & Florida finish as high as they are here.

Me too. In a weird scheduling quirk it will be the first time Mizzou has played A&M in Missouri since 2007. We've played them in College Station three straight years.

Wait a minute...did they play each other last year? I thought Arkansas was going to be Mizzou's permanent cross division rival.

Clemson could lose to UGA, SCAR, and FSU, and that would knock them out of the top 10 for sure and maybe even the top 20.

nebraska has an easy schedule and should start at least 9-0...they'll be ranked high and get blown out in a bowl game

I hope Manziel gets the same kind of suspension Pryor, Herron and those other guys got. (assuming this is all true)

Don't worry, I chose to forget the latter half of the season too. Yes, they played each other for logistical reasons. The cross-division with Arkansas starts next season.

They'll find a way to lose to a mediocre team. You're exactly right about a bowl game too. Pelini has yet to win a big game in his career.

Did you know there was a rule change concerning spiking the ball to kill the clock at the of the game? There has to be at least three seconds on the clock now. If it's within three seconds the game is over. You know someone's not going to know/remember this, probably as soon as opening weekend.

To protect the QB.
