USC and UCLA will smash their brains in.

Adding AU to my overrated list.

USC might, but I don't think UCLA is that good. A depleted Longhorns team almost beat them.

Now I think Oregon is overrated for sure- which I stated earlier, however, Oregon had 3 starting OL injured. They were starting a true freshman and a walk-on. When the line was healthy- vs. Michigan State (and in fact even with a starter out), we were pretty physical. Just cannot do much when a walk-on is playing against the big boys.

What is overrated though is our coaching. Helfrich, Scott Frost, or OC, and or DC are simply over their heads. They truly look confused without the ability to make changes. I mean, seriously, every play was between the tackles. I remember when we actually used our spend to get outside. Guess, that went out when Chip left. I actually think we get blown out by UCLA, possible lose to Washington, get blown out vs. Stanford, lose at Utah.

I can only hope for another Alamo Bowl invite so I can cruise down from Austin.

Looks like new additions to this list:

Oregon
Alabama
OU
Baylor (they won, but 0 points in the first half from their offense?)
Texas A&M

I gave a top 3 a while back. They all lost this week. My new pick is Mississippi State to win it all. I'm sure that will change next week.

you obviously didnt see the UT/Baylor game last year.. Baylor had more points at the half this year than both teams had at the half last year (3-3). it was a ridiculously slow start again this year, and Petty had an off day, but given all of that, the fact Baylor had a very mediocre game against a top 25 defense and still won by 3 possessions is pretty darn good..

Florida State seems overrated so far. Luckily for them the ACC is completely awful minus Louisville and the Tech's (Georgia * Virginia) as well as Miami when they decide to show up and play, which should protect them for a while.

Honestly, if they played in the SEC west Florida State may finish above Arkansas with the key work being maybe

Until A&M learns how to play defense(something that Sumlin lead teams have yet soon to do) they will always be overrated.

Yeah we have a good defense, too bad the rest of the team doesn't bother to show up.
