Every year Oklahoma is in the top at the beginning of the season. Not to much at the end of the season though.

According to that prediction, about 40% of our games will be against top 20 teams.

In terms of the teams that were ranked, he's 50/50 the last two years. He hasn't gotten the order correct, but he's pegged every team in the top 25.

This isn't his projections. This is what he predicts the AP will say in the preseason poll. Really? Has he sunk this far? Predicting what other media members will predict?

They did beat Bama at the end of the season though. And that QB is awesome.

i think 10 is about right for us. hopefully the media stays away and keeps slobbing over FSU, Bama/Auburn

I think it's a fair disclaimer. It seems like most projected polls are used that way. I don't know what the point of it is, though. To me, just put out your own projected top 25. I realize he is still reviewing spring film and making updates to rosters, etc... Maybe this is his way of staying in the news

I'm gonna ask my 4 year old cousin what he thinks the AP Top 25 will look like. Pretty much the same thing as Phil Steele.
