Phil Steele has us at #22 while Athlon has us at #7.  Average these two together and that's probably more accurate.  14th-16th would be my guess. Thanks for posting Lance.

Granted his mag was crap last year but I tend to treat Phil Steele's guide as the bible of college football.
 
These are interesting to see though.

Well remember Steele's guide is where he thinks teams will finish the season, not necessarily who the best teams right now. We do have a tough schedule with road games against Bama, Notre Dame, Nebraska and Ohio.

We're going to need a lot out of Floyd this year.  Countess made a few freshman mistakes in the last two games last season, but his ability made up for it.  Floyd is who I'll be watching most.

I think its very possible that this team will be much improved, but that improvement won't be reflected in the record because of the schedule.

They put Fitz down at #7? Come on. Outside of that outrage the top 10 list looks accurate.
