lol @ Baylor being mentioned. They are paper thin on the o-line and their D will suck again. Not to mention they are down to 67 scholarship players - in case y'all haven't been following the repercussions from their rape scandal.

OSU may be the fly in OU's Big Red ointment this year. And look out for TCU - never know what the Toads are gonna do.

OK Lets see
I am not sure of the rules, but does Alabama not get an automatic berth, and then 2 of the other 3 remaining slots have to go to SEC Teams?

ALL joking aside, let's see who might really be there
1 Michigan
Has what's his name had enough time to rebuild the program? Probably not quite, but next year, for certain.
2 Ohio State
In spite of whoever shows up, they always find a way to win.
3 Oklahoma
Is ok, but are they good enough to jump back into the top tier? Probably will win the Big 18 conference but not be
4 TEXAS
makes their supposed comeback this year. At least if you waste your money on Athlon, Street and Smiths and Boogers College Gameday previews Maybe in another year we might see Michigan vs Texas, but not this season
5 Notre Dame
A given to contend any year
6 the PAC TEN probably won't send a team the final four
7 Florida State
has the personnel and the coaching to win
8 North Texas should be the last place of the last place teams (Bottom ten) ranked 123 One of those teams who loses every game by allowing the opponents to score more points than they do.
SO putting it all together
1 FLorida State
2 LSU
3 Oklahoma
4 Ohio State

Florida State wins it all

Texas is poised to make a resurgence, but not to challenge for the Big XII championship just yet.

Look for that in '17 and/or '18. It depends a lot on getting some decent play out of a true freshman QB and a new offensive coordinator, since we haven't had any since David Ash "retired" 2 years ago with concussion issues.

I'm not seeing many scenarios wherein Alabama is not involved in this year's top four once again. Stanford may be a player as well. Clemson should be around. Perhaps one other surprise team. However, the way that Bama played yesterday against SC, they should take it all again.

Yesterday showed how meaningless and irrelevant pre-season polls are.

Hey - you gotta start somewhere. I love the pre-season polls. They make the leaders feel secure and fuel the fire in the lower-ranked teams, which usually provides us with a few guaranteed nail-biters.
