I was born in Michigan and grew up a Michigan fan until I went to Clemson. They'll go 7-6 this year. Shouldn't be sniffing the top 10.

Clemson Rugby is back on top.

I was born in Florida. Raised in Florida. And now live in Michigan. I'd put them at around 15 end of regular season.

That they have already smacked around until proven otherwise???

If it were some official poll, maybe. These are just

people's opinions, and nobody would be interested in them if they were just last year's rankings. Part of the excitement of CFB is that teams change so much from year to year.

This amazes me.

Remember the spring of 2016 when everyone said, "If a team wins the national championship they will be #1 until someone beats them?"

Now ESPiN wonders why their empire is falling? Yeah, it's the politics that's causing everyone to change the channel. Sure thing.

ESPiNs FPI isn't gonna like this.

Amazingly we beat 5 of Top 12 last year

And you know Oklahoma wants no part of Clemson any time soon. What a heck of a run Clemson is having.

2021 white level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg link

3 of top 4.. but who's counting?***

There's no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people who ask questions.


We were behind FSU in the preseason last year***

Next time, vote Jabba like you're supposed to.


Can't be right. Coots not ranked?***

Ah, time for preseason polls. Count on three teams to be overrated- Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Southern Cal. I can't believe Notre Dame is not on this list.

Not buying SoCal or PennSt...or UGA for that matter.***

I'm not sure either is going to be very good defensively.


Posted: May 2, 2017, 5:21 PM
 

Both could have great offenses though. Also, neither are elite on either line. I think both could potentially make the playoff, but neither will be good enough to win the natty.

Penn State has to play at Ohio State this year... that's going to be tough.

or Tennesse, Florida and LSU...but you know...SEC,SEC,SEC

At least Florida will have a good record because they are in the worst division

Looks about right. We lost Watson and no one else did.***

Exactly.We could finish top 5 somewhere or top 25 somewhere.

I have no idea what will happen with our QB this year.

I was born in SC, raised in SC, will never leave SC. I say No Ma'am/Yes Maam, No Sir/Yes Sir. I know that Coots will keep Cooting, and I have NO idea where Michigan will end up this year. (Sorry if that was too much, it just seemed there was a proclaim your state trend there and I hated to miss it). Go Tigers!

Isn't preseason fun. We criticize the predictions, offer our own opinion, especially unbiased to our favorite teams ;) and look to the past predictions of the self-professed experts to prove them wrong once again. They got Clemson and Alabama right in May of 16 for 2 of Top 4. Rest were woefully wrong. ESPN doesn't have a corner on the market for bad and ugly predictions. But we want to read em anyway, so that's why they do it. Isn't spring and summer fun awaiting for fall?

That's about right but the 2018 pre poll will have the Tigers #1
Goooooo Tigers!

Not that it's a big deal, and I don't want to sound similar to some type of "grammar-Nazi," but I wanted to let you know.
