    Questionable-

    Oh come on! We should at least be questionable!

    Its because of who they are.....simple as that.

    I agree though, I dont think ND is top 25 material yet and Texas' postition is alright to me because you know they are always bringing in kids who will compete at a high level right away.

    FSU=Ridic.

    Surprised to see Mizzou in the top 25...

    Yeah Mizzou surprised me too. With them losing Gabbert and having a back up who hasn't proven he can pass, but I think they return a lot of their starters. They do also lose their best defensive player though.

    MIzzou is a surprise, they were right in that 20-25 range last year IMO. I can't see them being any better.

    I'm usually not a fan of Schlabach, but I like his projected top 25 outside of the FSU pick...wayyyy too high on them.

    Re: ESPN's Pre-Preseason Top 25

    Alabama might also be a bit high. They lose quite a bit. I know they rebuild, but their losing their top three Offensive weapons, and I think I'm the only one in the world that doesn't think Trent Richardson is all that impressive.

    I agree, Bama is a running "system". I can't stand it that players on passing teams are the only ones who don't get credit for their stats based on them being "system" players. It's far more common for RB's to put up inflated numbers because of the way their teams play. Bama is a prime example....Iowa is another

    Re: ESPN's Pre-Preseason Top 25

    Mizzou ranked?
    Texas is ranked because of their name. I don't care how much talent they have, make them earn a ranking, don't just give it to them because they are Texas.

    Just wait, Lou Holtz will pick ND as his National Champion preseason pick. As usual.
