    I don't like that way of thinking. This is a judge of the team this season, not last. Clemson lost too much to be considered #1 preseason. I wouldn't have Bama at 1, lost a lot on defense. I'd have FSU #1, with Bama, tOSU, Clemson, USC and Penn State in top five.

    They will be very good, but lost a ton of talent and Barrett cant throw enough to win big games. Penn State is best B10 team IMO.

    I have always had the thought that if you finish #1, you should start #1. I said the same thing regarding Bama after they won their last NC...#1 until proven otherwise on the field. To have it just handed over to anyone other than the reigning national champ is heresy.

    How do you term Clemson as reigning national champ when you bring them at #5 or whatever it may be? That's like a slap in the face.

    Do I think Clemson wil finish #1. Nope. Not at all. But until they are beaten, they are the team to beat.

    They were the team to beat last year. It's like rewarding a team for the last seasons accomplishments. I'm a firm believer that preseason polls should pick who should be the best this season, not who won year before. They're meaningless anyway, the cream always rises regardless of preseason ranks.

    Re: Preseason Coaches Poll released

    I like the old days when there were no polls until October. That way you could get an idea of who is playing well without the pre-judged ideas based upon the year before.
    Go Dawgs!
