State schools
Top-Heavy
The talent pool in the state of Florida is unrivaled. The Gators, Seminoles and Hurricanes corral most of it. The result? Unparalleled success.

Television
'GameDay' will be in no hurry to entertain
Coming soon to your Saturday mornings: more in-depth interviews, more stories from obscure college teams, more of Lee Corso donning mascot heads.

Gators
No. 1 Priority
Nine teams have started with the AP's preseason top ranking and finished there. The Gators would like to be the 10th.

USF Bulls
New kid on the block
South Florida officially is Division I-A which means Division I-A opponents and plenty of difficult games.

Seminoles
Puzzling Scenario
For the first time in years, FSU has holes at many crucial positions. How well the fill-ins play will make or break the season.

Hurricanes
False Alarm
Butch Davis' departure could have left Miami in disarray, but when Larry Coker stayed on, a rising program retained its stability.

Southeast
Ewalt, Dolphins Looking forward
Luke Ewalt faced a choice entering his junior season at Jacksonville.

No depth forces Joe to tweak
What could be stranger than the sight of a Billy Joe-coached quarterback under center, handing off the ball? How about Joe calling the same play again?

It's Suber-man!
With the Wildcats' leading passer and rusher gone, a long season seemed inevitable. But coach Alvin Wyatt says Allen Suber is here to the rescue.

No lack of confidence
Coach Mike Kruczek likes his teams to play a tough schedule.

Ambitious schedule, realistic goals
BOCA RATON -- Florida Atlantic coach Howard Schnellenberger is neither boastful nor modest when assessing his team. Because the program is new, he has no idea what to expect.
