Look who is ahead of Clemson...
 
...in BR's post-NSD preseason top 25. North Carolina!!!

Full Top 25

Normally I wouldn't post Bleacher report here, since it is frowned upon, but this was too funny. Just thought everyone would get a kick out of it. BTW, we are at 11, which I think is probably fair.

Everyone always lists last years champions as if they get to play all over again.

FSU is not winning back to back.

I hate preseason rankings with a passion. They always go to schools who have that "big name". The best and easiest way is to keep the rankings of the schools of last year. Why does USC have to battle through 10 spots for #1 when the team last year busted it's butt to get that #4 ranking. Make it easy on everyone and get rid of the stupid guessing game called preseason rankings.

I get your point, but you have to guess eventually, because unless you wait until week 5 or so, you really have no idea of the top 25 rankings.

I think using last seasons rankings would suffice. Heck hasn't Auburn come out of nowhere this past year, and 2010 to go to the NCG? I don't remember them being ranked week 1 in both seasons IIRC. The playoff is the first step to making it better.

Now to mention it, this is pointless because the committee will be looking at the games from all angles, and hopefully ranking fairly. The AP, and Coaches poll are pointless now.

even if you use last year's rankings you're still guessing that the changes that each team went through did not impact their ability to win in the next season. rankings are messy in college sports always will be. the committee won't change this they will just give us another mostlikely equally flawed poll.

I don't see Watson starting over Stoudt. Stoudt was solid when he played last year and I think he will at least get the first look as this as he has many years in this offense.

Damn I cant wait for football to start back.
