Florida should be much improved. Schedule is more forgiving, o-line is upgraded, defense is much more experienced, the RB corp is built for this offense.

I think Florida could surprise some people this season.

I agree.  I think Florida will be a very good team.  If they can get some quality QB play, they could be a top 10 team.  They'll have to navigate a pretty tough schedule though.

Haha Michigan fans are going to be pissed! They think they have a top 5 team this season.

I thought they would be around 15 though. Last year they were the Mr Magoo of football, everything that could go right for them, went right. I think Michigan will definitely regress this year. Denard-Tastic has shown be zero quarterbacking ability and is nothing more than a RB playing QB. I could see Michigan with 3-5 losses this season

Alabama in Dallas (LOSS)
@ Notre Dame (SWING)
Michigan St (SWING)
@ Nebraska (SWING)
@ Ohio St (LOSS)

If the defense is as good as it is supposed to be, it will save a lot of the issues on the other side of the ball. Could be like a Bama 08 type team, obviously not as many wins but will have a chance to compete in every game because of the defense and limiting turnovers.

Think @Nebraska at night is almost for sure Loss.. @ND at night isn't going to be easy.. @Bama is for sure loss.. @OSU last game of yr for Buckeyes is as close to a sure loss as it comes.. then on top of MSU, don't think Iowa at home (3 game win streak over UM) will be easy either..

Could easily be 8-4 or 7-5..

 No way they'll be in anyones top 20...........but he overlooked them completely. When he has teams like Utah, Louisville, & Ohio ranked above them you can say he fanned on shot.

Texas as a "surprise" team? What does that mean? They annually tout one of the best recruiting classes in the nation so why would it be a surprise if they're good?
