    Another composite, Massey Rankings, shows us 8-4 preseason, but their power ratings, strength of schedule, power ratings of opponents etc. are recalculated week to week. I think they take into consideration your strength of schedule plus the ever changing strength of schedule for your opponents.

    Every year there are 4-5 massive misses in the polls. Last year UF was highly ranked and Auburn unranked. We all know how that worked out.

    If the preseason polls pick us low, I usually interpret that not so much about us as much as other teams in the Coastal are reasonably expected to have a good year. But still. Only UVa between us and the bottom rung?

    Where do I go to put cold, hard cash that we finish better than 2nd to last in the Coastal?

    Something interesting, Football Outsiders past pre-season ranks for Georgia Tech:

    2009: #9 (all of the other rankings were lower except for one)
    2010-2013: unranked
