The real question is with the talent coming back can we START somewhere close to being ranked?  That is the real issue for a program like ours - climbing up from being so far down the list.

People that start in the top-25 usually get the benefit of the doubt and hang around.  People that start in the others receiving votes get to jump in when the early season ranked teams falter.  So being recognized in the top 30 or so next September would be almost as big as finishing this season #27.

Let's make it simple…

Want to be ranked?  Go beat Minnesota.  We'll be ranked for the 1st time in program history.

Just a reminder, losing 8 DL is not an easy thing to overcome…especially when your first game is against BIG 10 330 LB OLinemen.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Very true, but their D is losing 8 starters so let's hope that levels the playing field a tad! Being ranked pre-season will just alert Minny even more to be prepared. And a loss there knows us right back to square one anyhow so we better win to be ranked AFTER the game!!!
