    Re: Preseason Polls

    The way Nebraska recruits, I'm surprised they're not No. 1 in both pubs.

    Re: Preseason Polls

    I haven't seen this much uncertainty since.. well.. last year. I don't really trust Lindy's anyway. Athlon is the best source for articles (especially the regional issues), while Phil Steele is the guy to go to for cold, hard statistics.

    Could be University of College Station, which is a remarkable feat meaning they'd be both ranked #18 and #1 this year.

    Re: Preseason Polls

    Iowa not in the top 25? Don't they have one of the top coaches in the country? Absolutely unbelieveable. I had them at number 5 with at outside change to go all they way! Wait a minute- they have to play IOWA STATE!!!

    My top pick for the most over-rated coming out of the gates-- Louisville.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    Re: Preseason Polls

    I think OU is going to be overrated at the beginning of the year. MAYBE a top 10 team by the end of the year, but starting out at the top 10? Nope.

    I'll take Miami. They weren't good last year and they have a new coach. Preseason Top 25...come on.

    OU's defense and returning RB got them a top 10 ranking.

    Re: Preseason Polls

    Even with Iowa not in the top 25 I still think they're overrated...
