    Our preseason poll

    The coach's preseason poll got me thinking, what are your preseason picks for the the top ten? I'm going to do a little research before I weigh in, I would also like to hear others opinions and why.

    All I know is if Georgia had the schedule of any team in the Big 10 they would be champs.

    Re: Our preseason poll

    I think USC will win it, GA has the best team - but the schedule is too tough.

    Top 10
    USC
    Oklahoma
    Georgia
    Ohio State (by default b/c the big 10 sux)
    Mizzou
    Az State
    Texas
    West VA
    Florida
    LSU

    You'll see when my Week 1 Blogpoll ballot comes out.

    Here was my Top 25 from last year and where they finished in the final coaches poll:

    1 Southern Cal 2
    2 LSU 1
    3 West Virginia 6
    4 Florida 16
    5 Michigan 19
    6 Wisconsin 21
    7 Texas 10
    8 Oklahoma 8
    9 Louisville NR
    10 Ohio State 4
    11 Auburn 14
    12 Virginia Tech 9
    13 Georgia 3
    14 UCLA NR
    15 Tennessee 12
    16 California 32
    17 Arkansas 39
    18 TCU NR
    19 Penn State 25
    20 Boise State 29
    21 Nebraska NR
    22 Rutgers NR
    23 Wake Forest 28
    24 Hawaii 17
    25 Oklahoma State NR

    Some colossal fails on mid-majors like TCU and Nebraska, but I'm happy with where I had my top 3, as well as where Wake Forest and Hawaii were. Even had Oklahoma exact.

    I found it hardest to place Whisky, Texas, and LSU in the proper order. Oh well.

    Nothing quite like hijacking the thread to take a shot at Iowa.

    I'll have to think about it, but Ohio State looks loaded. It depends on what Terrelle Pryot might add at quarterback.
