    ESPN's Way-Too-Early 2011 Top 25

    College football's Way-Too-Early 2011 Top 25 - ESPN

    What's everyone think? I agree with OU at #1, they are gonna be sick next year. Bama at 2 is confusing, especially over Oregon. I don't see why Auburn or Texas is on this list, Auburn won't have Cam and will be exposed at how bad they actually are, and Texas flat out sucked this year and fired half their staff, so I see another rebuilding year there.

    What? No Iowa?! But I thought they were always contenders!

    I think Ohio State is a little optomistic about all of those 5 players coming back. Only 4 teams in the top 25 for the Big 10 and one of them is Nebraska. We'll see if Patterson can continue to develop talent.

    Auburn I have no clue about, but Texas is ALWAYS going to be in the top 25 predictions until they have a couple years as last place team in the Big XII. They simply have too much money and too much access to premium talent to not be talked about. They are the football equivalent of the one and done basketball schools.

    But only 2 of them go pro for football. The other one becomes a pro tattoo artist.

    Until proven different, someone from the SEC will end up #1.

    Hence 'Bama at #2. They may have question marks, but they are the best bet for next year.

    Auburn is about to take a BIG step back unless Dyer becomes the next Bo.

    LSU was this year's Iowa (2009), living on a prayer on the way to an 11-2 record. They might not be so fortunate in the close ones next year.

    Arkansas will take a big step back if Mallet declares.

    Mississippi State has a very solid team, but they aren't NC contenders.

    There is NO ONE in the East that is a NC contender. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Tennessee won the East next year, but that's merely a testament to how far behind the West that division really is.

    Stanford should be higher with Luck coming back. Auburn and ASU have no business being on that list

    Also, Arkansas should not be that high with Mallett leaving

    Texas at #22 is underrated imo. Their recruiting class could end up being #22 if all they played was freshmen. There's way too much talent there and I wouldn't be surprised if they finished in the top 15.
