    # 5 UGA could open 0 - 2. They open against #8 Clemson on the road and then take on #7 South Carolina next. And they have a few players sitting out a game or two.

    #24 USC: 7-6 record.

    Nice. Must definitely have been the wind.

    USC is the FSU of the West, I guess.

    They only lost 2 games and won the Pac 12 and Rose Bowl this is a fair placing
    USC's ranking is crazy 7-6 with a loss to GT in the Sun Bowl yet they ranked 24th and the Institute isn't ranked at all..

    They are assured that USC wasn't taking the Sun bowl serious and could have easily beaten us if it was a bowl that mattered.

    I am glad we did not receive any votes. I want a big chip on our shoulders.

    I like it. Like it a lot. We play much better with a chip on our shoulder with something to prove. We usually come out flat when the media likes us.

    Do preseason polls even matter? Think about it, there are only 1 or 2 teams that would get in the big dance with a loss on their ledger. A one loss SEC champ and, maybe tOSU. One loss on our schedule = title hopes done. However, if we somehow run the table, there's no way a 1 loss team would jumps us. We would be ACC champs and have beaten Miami, VT, UNC, Clemson, BYU, Uga, and FSU (or Clemson, again). All of those teams have a chance to be ranked either when we play them or better, at the end.

    Starting the season unranked helps build team unity and purpose: get RESPECT! In the words of CPJ: "I don't want anybody givin' us anything, I wanna take it!"
