8. Florida

Florida has a serious collection of talent that can compete for the SEC championship and more. But the Gators will begin the season with more questions than answers. Dorian Finney-Smith (Virginia Tech transfer), Casey Prather, Damontre Harris and Scottie Wilbekin could all miss multiple games due to suspensions. Rutgers transfer Eli Carter and forward Will Yeguete are still recovering from injuries. Top-15 recruit Chris Walker isnt eligible yet. But freshman Kasey Hill is a stud. And center Patric Young is a double-double threat. Plus, the temporarily sidelined players should eventually return in time for the Gators to challenge Kentucky for the SEC title. -- Myron Medcalf
