    After CU starts 4-0, we will be ranked behind both Michigan and Oregon despite beating both of them on the road.

    The Kool-aide runs strong with this one. I hope you are correct... but you won't be.

    I admire your optimism. Beating Michigan did help the Utes in the polls last year. So if you do, there's that.

    Utah is a strange place. Witness devildog. The poster who can't be Buff. But wants to be. Sad.

    They'll climb higher before they drop, too.

    First 3 weeks of their schedule (and I'm not making this up):

    Home vs Northwestern State
    Hove vs SMU
    Away at Rice

    After that is when they start to falter. Home loss vs Okie Lite, road upset at Iowa State. Bye. Then they'll beat Kansas at home. 4-2 at the mid-point.

    Last 6 games might very well keep them from making a bowl game:

    Away at Texas
    Home vs TCU
    Away at Oklahoma
    Home vs KSU
    Away at TTU
    Away at WVU

    They are gentle young men if you ignore a rape every now and then.

    Bama and LSU are seriously overrated, but otherwise looks pretty good.

    Preseason polls are worthless and stupid. I reserve the right to change my mind when we start getting ranked again.

    Tennessee at 9 is what stands out to me. Top 20, probably, but 9?

    Yeah. Especially when you look at their record against opponents that had winning seasons last year. Overrated.

    I'd take a few of their players though, especially Herd, dude is a beast. Built a lot like Chris Brown, tall but about 230. To the point, I'd say top 20 is more likely.
