TBDPITL: Preseason

Figured I'd use my blog to post my ballots since I'm not using it for much anything else...

I completely dislike preseason polls and truly wish that there were no rankings until after the 4th or 5th week of play.  Now, I say that because I believe that the pollsters get trapped into a mindset of not wanting to move "top" teams too far, so, in theory this is my chance to buck their trend, no?

Anyway, being the preseason poll there's not much to go on but gut feeling and hearsay.  So here's my gut feeling and hearsay...

  1. Georgia
  2. Oklahoma
  3. Southern California
  4. Ohio State
  5. West Virginia
  6. Florida
  7. Missouri
  8. Texas
  9. Wisconsin
  10. Clemson
  11. Virginia Tech
  12. Auburn
  13. Brigham Young
  14. Oregon
  15. Louisiana State
  16. Texas Tech
  17. Pennsylvania State
  18. Fresno State
  19. Illinois
  20. Kansas
  21. Pittsburgh
  22. Tennessee
  23. Cincinnati
  24. Mississippi State
  25. Troy
During the season I'll add some commentary and such, but for now this is all you get, sorry.
