Where I Come From: Where Will FSU Be Ranked To Open The Season?

This post is sponsored by EA Sports NCAA Football 2011.

Inspired by a recent Dennis Dodd column, I thought our last "where I come from" post would ask y'all to predict where Florida State will open the season in the AP and ESPN polls.  Dodd, who writes for CBS Sports (thus the absence of an ESPN mention) used five polls:  The Sporting News, Phil Steele, Lindy's, Athlon. Yahoo Sports and CBSSports.com. Dodd found:

15. Florida State: New coach, healthy quarterback. Great prospects. Highest rank, No. 14. Lowest rank, No. 20. (60 points, Avg. rank No. 16)

Personally, I wouldn't have three of those in my ten best polls, but that's not the issue here today.  Nor is the issue the stupidity of pre-season polls, which always produce inappropriate biases in the minds of voters which seems to carry the day deep into the season after many games have been played.  No, the issue here today is:

"Where will FSU open in the first ESPN Coaches Poll? (the one used for the BCS)"

I'll give my answer later this afternoon, but first I want to see your thoughts.
