    Interesting that in some polls, UCF is ranked ahead of UF and FSU. Here, we see FAU at #17! :emoji_rolling_eyes:

    Usually, the Book's composite early odds are pretty true to future reality.

    A MASSIVE HOWEVER - when the CROWD changes these, you always, always go with THE CROWD.

    It's still absurdly early, and these will change before the season begins, but right now, the CROWD likes the following better than the Books (at bottom are those liked less, including unfortunately, the Gators, but not the Noles):
    Bama (5/2 to 7/4)
    Clemson (6/1 to 5/1)
    Georgia (8/1 to 7/1)
    FSU (40/1 to 25/1)
    Dislikes
    Michigan (10/1 to 12/1)
    Oklahoma (18/1 to 20/1) several others, including Florida (60/1 to 100/1)

    As I said, it's early, and these are mostly very minor moves (except Bama)

    Note:
    Some of these rankings are updated periodically by the sources during the year.

    I see the returning national champions return at 17 this year. Big drop.

    All I am looking for is a competent offense. I am not asking for much. Can we just be in the top half of the sec on offense please.

    As usual, other than the Top 5-10 teams, Rankings are ALL OVER THE PLACE.

    For UCF to be ranked anywhere is absurd. Frost had literally Magical Luck with that team last year. To expect such a thing to have in 2 successive years is extremely unrealistic. Of course, that term pretty well describes the Human Animal's Mind.

    Like BYU back in the day, when you play a weak schedule, you will always be ranked
