Florida has a good shot at being 3rd in the East.
I'm not sure Clemson's D can stand their up tempo offensive.
There aren't a lot of potential losses on OSU's schedule but even Urban Meyers says they're not ready to compete for the Natty.
No way Michigan is a top 10 team.
I think Florida will surprise this year obviously. Not sure they will win the East, but I think a 10-2 season is quite possible.
I'm not entirely sold on Clemson either, but I think they have the best team in the ACC and there are no great teams in the conference.
I don't think Ohio State loses and an unbeaten Ohio State will more than likely play for the national title even if they don't have the horses to be a real threat. Of course I don't really think anyone is a real threat to Alabama this year. They are significantly better than everyone else at this point.
Michigan doesn't have to be a top ten team to make the Rose Bowl, they just need to be in the top 14 and that they will likely be with a 9/10 win season which is certainly quite possible for them (if Ohio State isn't in the national title then Michigan is a less likely pick especially if ND is also eligible, the Rose Bowl loves to replace lost teams with teams from the same conference and does so whenever possible).
