RE: Orlando Sentinel Countdown -- 2018
So with three teams making early entries, this is what we have left.

North Texas
UTSA
UAB
USM
LA Tech

FAU
FIU
MTSU
WKU
ODU
Marshall

Who do you think is next, and what will be their rank?

I really don't like saying this, but it looks to me like ODU could well be the next team from C-USA. I think the Monarchs will be somewhere around 115.

We will be underrated as usual. We will have to earn our respect on the playing field.

ODU maybe around 108.

I don't think they should be next. I think they will be much better this season. But most of these preseason rankings are done by lazy reporters that just base them on how a team finished the previous year.

I agree with your assessment on preseason rankings based largely on last season's performance -- especially with "Uncle" Matt Murschel and the Sentinel countdown. My projection for ODU at "somewhere around 115" is based on what I think Uncle Matt will do. In reality, I think ODU will make it to a bowl with 7 or 8 wins and be more of an high 80s or 90s team at the end of the season.

Wow! FIU is in at 122. I did not see this coming, and C-USA now has four of the bottom eight.

122. FIU
123. Coastal Carolina
124. San Jose State
125. Charlotte
126. Kent State
127. Rice
128. Texas State
129. UTEP

Link doesn't work. See if this one does the deal.

Surprised that FIU would be so low. Even if you believe they'll take a step back this season (I guess we can call 2018 "this season" now), a team with seven offensive starters back from a bowl team shouldn't be one of the worst in FBS.

Not sure what happened, but I have updated the link. Here it is again.

Ball State is in at 121. Here's the update.

121. Ball State
122. FIU
123. Coastal Carolina
124. San Jose State
125. Charlotte
126. Kent State
127. Rice
128. Texas State
129. UTEP

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/co...-rankings/

A couple of notes:

After a few complimentary visits to their web site, the Sentinel is charging for access to their E-News. I have subscribed and will continue to provide updates, but the link may not work for you after a while.

The Monarchs have three of the bottom eight teams on their schedule this year, plus ECU which is likely not far behind. Could be a good season for the Monarchs.

Putting FIU that low is insulting. FAU will not make the top-40. C-USA gets no respect until we start winning OOC.

I certainly hope you are joking. No preseason ranking is gonna give any csua team a top 40 ranking, regardless of what dream season they had the year before. A few years in a row like that, yea sure you might crack the top 40 but not just one season.

This same publication ranked Western Kentucky #31 after their 2015 season. Just sayin'. (I could care less about preseason rankings, btw).

If memory serves me correctly, the year before that 31 ranking, WKU was a one loss team that finished in the top 25 with many players returning.

FAU will be at best in the 40's imho. But like you said... preseason doesn't mean squat
