Seems every day I read my daily newspaper, there is one or two articles on pre-season polls.

Bragging where their college team is ranked on pre-season polls
Bragging which of their teams athletes were selected first team all conference on pre-season polls
Bragging which players were selected 2nd team all conference on pre-season polls.

All those pre-season awards and 25 cents will get you coffee at Ma and Pa's Kettle in Cameron Missouri, but they don't put a trophy in your hand.

I would almost not want my team to be have a high preseason ranking, most of the time those teams aren't around at the end of the season, with a few exceptions.

Preseason polls are a joke.

Preseason polls are inaccurate and a big waste of time.

Everyone already knows that OU will always be #1. No need for any polls.

I like preseason polls. I always try to pick teams that aren't there that will be there at seasons end and vice versa.
