    This site is actually pretty accurate to what the Top 25 will look like when it comes out next August.

    Re: VERY Early CFB Top 25

    8 out of 12 of our opponents are in the pre-season top 50 but 4 out of those 8 will be at home.

    I am surprised that UCONN is ranked that much higher than Iowa. Many on this board will probably think that UCONN on the road will be *easier* than Iowa at the Jack.

    I still expect a 4 or 5 win season, but it is tough to predict when we have no idea who our starting QB will be.

    Re: VERY Early CFB Top 25

    It is still really early to know what the best 25 teams will, but I think these guys are right that it is trivialy easy to predict what teams the voters will pick for the preseason top 25 in August.

    UCONN at #22 is pretty laughable unless they were redshirting a whole family of studs or something. But the voters will put them their because they were in a BCS bowl.

    OU has to be one of the most overrated teams each and every year. Some mags had them #1 going into this year too.

    Rightfully so, I think most anyone in the media would agree when you put it like that.

    Can we atleast wait untill after the underclassmen decide if they are going pro or not. that's going to change the order i think
