Most of the Preseason Polls are pretty close and I am using Sporting News Poll:

SN’s Preseason Top 25 for 2018

1. Alabama
2. Clemson
3. Georgia
4. Ohio St.
5. Oklahoma
6. Wisconsin
7. Washington
8. Auburn
9. Notre Dame
10. Penn State
11. Miami
12. Michigan
13. Michigan State
14. Stanford
15. USC
16. UCF
17. Virginia Tech
18. LSU
19. TCU
20. Florida State
21. Oklahoma State
22. Texas
23. South Carolina
24. Mississippi State
25. Boise State

Here are the teams on this list that I think won’t live up to the rankings/hype:

Texas
Auburn
Miami
UCF
Notre Dame
Michigan.

That’s pretty high for ND. I’d imagine they’ll start in the AP in the low teens. Loser of Michigan-Notre Dame in Week 1 is pretty likely to not meet expectations given their schedules ahead.

I doubt LSU will end up ranked by season’s end.

If you’re happy with good enough, then good enough is what you’ll be. Greatness requires the expectation of excellence.
