These guys aren't trying to stir anything, they're giving their honest opinion. Put yourself in that position, would you go on national TV & intentionally make a pick you didn't believe in? Because one of two things will happen. (1) they'll be wrong & the fans of the winning school will throw it in their face repeatedly or (2) They'll be right & the silence will be deafening.

The writers picking USC to win the East means not one iota, same as Herby picking UGA. Votes don't count, only the scoreboard.
They'll talk about small teams all over the media and how they'll have a shot, but everyone knows who's gonna come out on top. they can predict a close game or potential upset, but the media can't make themselves look like a fool, always being wrong. Talking heads actually do know what's going on, believe it or not.

Guessing, guessing, and more guessing. All of them could be a weatherman in Charleston. They show models of what's going to happen every day and are correct 50% of the time. Never discount the 'pop-up' situation

Don't tell Dabo or the clowns at ESPN,
but talk as prelude is just BS.
The correct order is walkie-talkie.

For as good as we've been the last three years, we have not won the East once during those years. We're not gonna get much respect from the Gameday boys until we prove 2010 wasn't a fluke.

Hell, Corso thinks the Pac-12 is better than the SEC as a whole. With teams like Colorado, Wa State, Cal and Utah I don't think so buddy.

I don't even get up and watch gameday anymore.

I know it doesn't matter but I was VERY surprised they barely even mentioned us at all. Thought we had earned a little more respect than that. And what makes Corso so impressed with Florida? I agree with him that they will be better but winning the East? Don't see that happening. We just need to kick ass on the field and show everybody that we are for real.

These "talking heads" are like a friend of mine says about the weatherman. He is 80% right 10@ of the time. It is August, who knows--who cares.

I have lost a lot of desire to listen to those guys anymore. They were always heaping praise on every QB in the nation except Connor Shaw who deserved to be recognized for his abilities. They really overlook talented players just because they are not a member of the teams of the Gods like Bama, Auburn, Georgia, to name a few.

Anyone who says Florida will win the East needs to put down the crack pipe.

Will they improve from the 4-8 season with a loss to an FCS school? Yes, but I doubt they make it to ATL. I think they will make it to a bowl, but they are looking at a 7 or 8 win season.
