Saving the Gators

Can a new offensive coordinator and a healthy quarterback cure what ailed Florida in 2013? And with a projection of 7-5, one must start asking how many wins it will take to save the Will Muschamp era.

Missouri reloads, sort of

Considering the losses, you'll recognize more names than you think on this year's Missouri squad. But the Tigers have to fill some pretty big holes if they are to make a run at a second straight East title.

Arkansas will improve ... on paper

In Bret Bielema's second year, the Razorbacks should be excellent at running the ball and solid at defending the pass. But that probably isn't good enough to make headway against a brutal schedule.

Tennessee and the Ole Miss model

Extreme turnover in the trenches should prevent Tennessee from doing much better than about 6-6, but great recruiting and increasing experience could make for high 2015 expectations.

Vandy starts over again

Derek Mason has the perfect résumé for continuing Vandy's winning ways in James Franklin's absence. But while the defense has some exciting play-makers, the offense will be a question mark.

Shared from:

Kentucky's real momentum

Mark Stoops improved Kentucky on the field (awful to bad) and in recruiting (top-20 class) in his first year. His Wildcats won't be bowling yet, but there's opportunity for another step forward.

Clemson vs. Georgia: Strength vs. strength

... but with different strengths this time. The two quarterbacks from last year's 38-35 shootout are gone. Now it's all about Clemson's ferocious defensive line vs. Georgia's all-world backfield.

Shared from:

Time for Clemson to pin its ears back

Clemson loses its two most visible stars from last year's Orange Bowl squad, but the Tigers return one of the best defensive lines -- and perhaps the best set of coordinators -- in the country. They are deep and fast and might not need to rebuild.

GT has higher upside, lower downside

After winning 20 games in his first two seasons, Paul Johnson has settled into the seven-win groove Chan Gailey nearly patented at Georgia Tech. But with less experience and more upside, the Jackets appear more likely to win five or nine in 2014.

Troy tries to continue the rebound

Head coach Larry Blakeney's legacy at Troy is set already, but if he has one more rise to Sun Belt power in him, it begins this year. His Trojans have plenty of questions to answer at quarterback and on defense, but Troy's got some play-makers.
