Solid. Guy really knows his stuff. Sucks seeing him project Jhaustin Thomas as a starting DE. Hate he didn't make the grades to get in.

This is a more talented and experienced team than many realize. It isn't very likely that a new guy will walk into a starting position.

He's got Georgia ranked ahead of us. Again.

At least everyone has stopped ranking Georgia AND Clemson ahead of us even when we beat them.

Everyone is high on Georgia right now. Until they have two mediocre seasons, they will always be ranked above us. Media is convinced that last years 8 win season was a fluke

To be honest, it was a bit of a fluke because of all of their injuries. Yeah I know injuries happen to all teams, but that many injuries to that many contributors is an extreme fluke.

no he doesn't....he has Georgia ranked #11.

If this is true, we'll be playing Bama in Atlanta.

His projected top 25 (meaning USA and AP )has Georgia ranked at #11, it isn't his ranking.

He hasn't ranked Georgia yet and has us at #10 and I doubt he has them unranked.

You know, if Auburn finishes ninth that'll likely mean they finished the season with 10 or more wins—in back to back seasons.

If I were you not only would I accept that, I'd hope for it. It would be an accomplishment, yes, a milestone, for the program you're a fan of.

Not a milestone, we've done it once before! Lol

If you take an average of the last 2 seasons, we have finished 17.5 spots ahead of his "expert" projections. If this year keeps that pace, with his #10 projection, we'll win the Natty Title. So.....maybe his projections are worth something after all....Thanks Phil!

If Phil gives us a favorable ranking , he "knows his stuff"
If not, he's a "blowhard/does anyone actually read his magazine?"

I've never commented on him before but I listened to him on a podcast the other day and was pretty impressed. You can tell he puts a ton of work into these preseason things. Obviously the games still have to be played he could pick a team to finish 3rd and they finish unranked. Has nothing to do with his knowledge of the game it's the nature of sports

He sure is better than the "experts" on espn. It's also important to remember that college football is so unpredictable. If you had told me Duke would win 10 games at this time last year, I probably would have laughed in your face.

He does great research as is really informed about each team. A lot better than most "experts" who only know about 2-4 players on each team.
