I think this ranking is suspect.
- I don't think Oklahoma is #1 good, but probably good enough to be in the pre-season top 10. Soundly beating an Alabama team that was one play away from (likely) going to the natinoal championship game is noteworthy.
- No. Car. finished their season strong, has some decent depth this year, and will probably be a contender for the ACC championship this year.
- I'm very surprised Clemson isn't in this list, which is why I think it's suspect. They deserve to be in the top 15-20. I expect them to drop off from last year, but not that much.
