Clemson coach Dabo Swinney had high praise for returning cornerback Cordrea Tankersley, the anchor of a secondary that lost three draft picks off last year's group. "The fact that he came back is huge for us," Swinney said. "He has a chance to be a high first-round pick. He's got what everybody's looking for. He can fly. He's tough, he's physical, he's long. He's got a chance to be really, really special."

Pat Narduzzi is excited by the idea of lining up James Conner at wide out. Pitt has loads of depth at RB, and Narduzzi said his goal is to get his best players on the field, and Conner's size and hands make him an intriguing option split out wide.

Dave Doeren raved about DE Bradley Chubb. "We've not had a pass rusher that forced teams to adjust protections, but Chubb can be that guy." Other ACC coaches have agreed, calling Chubb potentially one of the best pass rushers in the league.

North Carolina has to play seven teams with first-year head coaches, including the opener against Georgia. Coach Larry Fedora said his staff watched six different schools to prepare for what Kirby Smart might bring to the Bulldogs. "It's chaos," Fedora said. "You're breaking down Pitt, you're breaking down Tennessee, you're breaking down Arkansas -- not including Virginia Tech for special teams. My comments to our guys: we may not see any of this, so when we get in this game, you have to be ready to change. You have to be able to adapt."

The coaches in the SEC are so confident in the strength of their league most believe its spot in the playoff is a lock. I asked Butch Jones if he thought the SEC champ would ever be left out. "I don't. The SEC will always be in the conversation." Will Muschamp said the SOS in the SEC "speaks for itself" and called it a "huge advantage" to be in the league. Gus Malzahn said the SEC winner "every year will be in that final four." It would certainly take an unusual situation to leave the SEC out, but with the human element involved, and the unpredictable nature of the sport, nothing is a guarantee.
