They also lost their second leading rusher.
i would say clemson, they have out of conference games with auburn and south carolina as well as the acc schedule if they somehow can manage to get through that undefeated they could sneak in, it would really depend on how alot of other schools do as well, also west virginia this is the first year in the big 12 and michigan state there first game of the year is against boise state, if they beat boise and boise does well this year it will help mich state as long as they get through the big ten they should have a pretty decent strength of schedule, alot of this depends how other teams do this year
FSU, Ohio St, UGA.
OSU has a postseason ban.
Thanks, but not until we can beat Arkansas or they're removed as our permanent opponent. MF'ers are like kryptonite to our football program. Seriously they could be 0-fer, we could be undefeated, and we'd make both of their lines look like pro bowlers.
The Peoples Champ, son.
Like that can stop Urban.... pfftt

Yes, it was such a problem they won 9 games and a bowl game his first year there.
Logic is your friend, bro.
Its crazy that 8 of our first 9 games are in the state of florida
Logic would say that going from averaging 426.9 yds/game in 2004 and 31.8 pts/game to 373.1 yds/game and 28.6 pts/game is a bit a step back and when you add that they averaged 12.5 pts/game against ranked SEC opponents (Tennessee, Alabama, LSU, and UGA) that they struggled some on offense.
Please continue to be defensive about everything I post, but check your facts next time.
I am assuming by your statement that you would be very happy with 8 wins next year.
Feels much like another team in Florida's schedule, doesn't it?
Question should be who will be unfortunate enough to play LSU in the national championship. Our savior has finally come,
Here we go with the "easy schedule" garbage again....
UF's OOC schedule is rarely tough except for FSU at the end of the season. But the regular conference schedule is as hard as it gets year in and year out. Compare UF's schedules from 2011 and for 2012. Huge difference.
Either way, if the preseason champs drop more than 1 this year for all the hype they've been getting, it'd be business as usual.
Logic would say it's only a problem if the team is losing. Urban's Florida team improved in his very first year there.
Your assumption would be incorrect but 8 wins would be an improvement for OSU compared to the previous year.

Florida plays LSU every year, they deserve 2 easy OOC games for that
Anything less than 10 wins in unacceptable
Again, Urban had Mullen/Mattison/Strong his first three years at UF. Mattison immediately turned our talented DL into a productive one. That's what won us most of our games that year and the next.
Urban with those asst coaches to carry the load, is NOT the Urban of today. Once he had to make hires to replace those three, he was done. His evals, hiring skills, x's and o's, and heart were all exposed.
The team Urban took over from Zook was WAY more talented than the one he left. It was also way more talented than the one he's taking over at Ohio State.

They sounded like they meant the fact you play a lot of games inside the state of Florida, not that your schedule is easy
Oh and this Savannah St team looks like the worst team FSU has ever played or that I have seen them play
Our first team will be out of the game midway threw the 1st quarter
I think the coaching staff in Columbus is as good if not better than the one he had at Florida. As for talent, I believe Ohio State has put as many players (if not more) in the league than Florida over the past decade or so.
Based on what? Unlike UF, Meyer now has a hodge podge of people he's never worked with before. And none really have accomplished anything of note as coaches. And he didn't even get his first choices for OC or OL coach. At best, this staff is one big question mark. It might be very good or it might be a disaster. If I were OSU fans, I would feel much more comfortable if Meyer was bringing his exact same staff from his best years at UF.

The staff is packed with Ohio guys that have connections to either the state of Ohio or Ohio State. That's plenty good enough for me.
We (UGA) have no reason but ourselves to not be there this year. I am sure we will find a way to screw it up, but I can't fail to pick them because we have the pieces and possibly the easiest schedule of any team with a legit shot in all of CFB.
My other would be FSU, pending a deeper look at some other teams.
I honestly expect Southern Cal to be there this year, PAC looks too weak to stop them this year.

The UF schedule approach might work wonders. I'll say FSU, they'll be favored in every game they play.
I would much rather have the staff that worked together to produce two national championships at UF and an undefeated season at Utah. But I guess that's just my UM homerism coming out.
The staffs weren't exactly the same for both championships though, right? I believe Mattison was gone by the time they won the second. I get your point but no staff stays together forever. Some people think Meyer is a coach who's completely dependent on his assistants. Other people believe that's simply rivals (or scorned fans from a previous program) grasping at straws. I guess we'll find out.
