Default Opening Rank For Next Season

Well, I'm stoked! We finished 4th in both the AP and Coaches polls which is freaking awsome! And I know its not where you start but where you finish. But now, after finding out who we're returning and who we are having to replace, where do we start out ranked at next season? I'm thinking no worse than 8th but Lord knows I've been wrong at least twice that I know of. Anyhow what say you Cockytalk? Go Cocks!

Wow! Finished 4th that says a lot for ol gamecock nation. With hearing that I really can't wait for the 4 team playoffs to start. Even though we are returning a lot our schedule is looking rough next yr with opening with A&M if Manziel returns and also got auburn. If we can replace Connor shaw which will be hard I think we had a great shot next yr!

A&M is a home game. Manziel won't return. Georgia and Missouri are home games and their Senior QB's are gone. Florida is in disarray. Plus Auburn has no defense.
The biggest issues for us Cocks is who is leaving and who replaces them, particularly QB!

Our biggest issue will not be QB. It will be CB.

That would seem right to me.
Lose a starting QB, top receiver, the best DE in the country, both starting corners and an All-American DT....big losses.

I knew we were losing those guys, but seeing it all written so succinctly... it hurts my confidence for next year. :(

Is it just me or is the reason they give for the ranking lacking......thought, perspective, intellect, college football insight, common sense? Seems to me they are making a solid case for a higher ranking.

USATODAY hates us!
