The return of quarterback Tajh Boyd makes the Tigers the favorite in the ACC. Tailback Andre Ellington and receiver Nuke Hopkins are gone, but if receiver Sammy Watkins can keep himself from getting suspended for early-season games, he can exit camp as the focal point of the offense and reclaim the magic that made him one of the nation's best receivers as a freshman. Coordinator Brent Venables had the defense playing better at season's end. If that improvement continues through the offseason, the Tigers will deserve this ranking.
Why this ranking could be too low: We'll know quickly how good this team is. The Tigers open against Georgia in Death Valley.
Why this ranking could be too high: It's Clemson with a preseason top-10 ranking. What could possibly go wrong?

Andy Staples (Sports Illustrated.com) has become one of my favorite college football writers. His predictions this past season were pretty accurate.
