    OU at #9 is too low, IMO.

    Watch out for Harbaugh and Michigan this year. I think they are too low in this ranking.

    They lost a ton of talent though.

    Also, Willie Taggart left South Florida locked and loaded as he headed off to Oregon. Can Charlie Strong keep it going? I guess Dodd thinks he can...

    Having a Texas team ranked that just went 5-7.....I'm shocked.....NOT.

    They have talent, but I'm not buying it until I see it.

    Interesting to see WVU still in there given their low returning starters numbers shared earlier.

    Don't forget, Michigan has the Pope on their side after Harbaugh gave him some sneakers.

    OU gets no respect while UT gets too much. What else is new?

    Dennis Dodd is a guy I have a lot of respect for, but I think he's sleeping on Boise St this year. Big time playoff sleeper.

    I think Wyoming could be a top 25 team. They return a ton and might have the best QB in college football.

    Their coach is a logical candidate to replace Bill Snyder, given he was hired at NDSU by our new Bison A.D..

    He's a really good QB, but that ain't a top 25 team.

    With all they have coming back they definitely have a chance. Especially since their early schedule has Iowa and Oregon. Beating two power 5 teams could put them in early rankings.

    If they win those two games it would give them a chance, but a school like Wyoming losing a couple of draft picks could be hard to overcome. And they weren't great last year. I could see them being in the top 40 or 50 range.

    They were really close in 4 of their losses. and in the Nebraska game they were in it in the 4th quarter. I am a big fan of their coach and I see them as a team that will continue to ascend. But they don't have a huge margin for error.
