UMich and I both were aware of the Royals before the season started. But good luck amigo. Phoggy is a Royals fan so I really cant root against her unless its against us grin1

I understand.  I hardly root against teams unless it benefits mine directly.  There are exceptions...Ohio St., NCState are a couple that come to mind.

I don't think we Gator fans are expecting a win at 'Bama this Saturday.  Wins vs Tennessee, Missouri, Vandy and Eastern Kentucky, yes.  Then at least 2 vs Alabama, Georgia, LSU, South Carolina and FSU.  I don't think that's unreasonable.

I will never ever go to a Colorado Buffalo home game again. Terrible ,vile, and dangerous experiences are too many
But I wish the Buffs well in their new 12 PAC

With only 11 games this season, 8-3 means Muschamp stays.  7-4 is iffy, depends on how the wins and losses play out.  6-5 or worse and I think he's toast.

I agree.  Health and depth should determine those outcomes.  SCar has proven beatable, LSU is young and FSU is feeling their oats from last year.

Evening 9er, I was surprised there even was this kind of poll so early in a season. Good points and I don't disagree. We will both learn alot about our teams Saturday

I think that, when a team--no matter who they are--proves beatable, other teams become more confident playing them. Who's afraid of tOSU or Michigan State now?  Look what happened to 'Bama after they lost to Auburn.

I think it's possible for Michigan to dramatically improve, but the same goes for them. This is why I never get too high or too low after the outcome of 1 game

Ahh, the season is young and many surprises await us...like Nebraska, Michigan, Florida and North Carolina making the 4 team playoff.

Evening, wmich.  Hope all is well.

The season is still awfully young.  I'm willing to be patient.

Yep. I think we're a year away from winning the PACSouth. I like the directions that the Dodgers and Giants are going though!!

Calling it a night.  Have an early morning conference call with our London brokers about placing insurance on a circuit board manufacturer that makes missiles hit their targets.  No US insurer wants to tackle that one.

Damn Brits have to schedule calls in the morning as they hit the pubs in the afternoon to "finalize" deals.
