They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

(1.) West Virginia
(2.) Ole Miss [Because it seems every time I take Arkansas, they lose]
(3.) Cal [both are 4-4, and 1-4 in conference; I could rock - paper - scissors this one]
(4.) Air Force
(5.) Penn State
(6.) Georgia
(7.) TCU [However, Iowa St has been playing on another level]
(8.) Notre Dame [I hope I'm wrong, but the leprechauns seem to be legitimate contenders]
(9.) Washington [The Bruins are just jerk enough to win; but I think the Huskies @ home take it]
(10.) Michigan State
(11.) South Florida [Houston seems to have fallen off a bit]
(12.) Utah
(13.) Iowa [Kinnick will be loud and the Gofers will be rattled]
(14.) Kentucky [If this does happen, goodbye Jones]
(15.) Purdue
(16.) Georgia Tech [My dilemma is, Clemson has had an extra week t prepare; but is Bryant ready]
(17.) Oklahoma [so far; Texas Tech's only conference win has been against Kansas]
(18.) Arizona
(19.) Boise State
(20.) Arizona State

Or at all. Every team has injuries, but not to FSU's extent, coupled with all the disruption. The rest of the season they just need to cut loose and play "Let it all hang out" football.

You know..? As bad as the florida gators are playing, and with the number of players they have suspended indefinitely; the FSU/florida game is going to actually be rather competitive this year.

Both have depleted rosters ... and neither one of them have much of an offense to speak of ... not sure who I would take in that game at this point.
