Our rankings range from 5 to 13....I'd say it's about right. I hope it's closer to 5 than 13, but only time will tell. Why do some of you guys get so worked up about preseason rankings??

So Clemson will roll over the ACC, with a minor challenge only from FSU. They should, but they will miss Hopkins, Ellington, the TE (Ford, I think), and their center more than many suppose. Wading through the SEC should be the usual bloodbath, and Ohio State will ride their usual easy schedule down to the wire. Weeks 1 and 2 will tell a lot of the story for us and Clemson. After that, we have plenty of work to do while they mainly have to worry about us. The schedules seem to affect ranking nearly as much as the team's quality and depth.

Preseason rankings are generally worthless in terms of assessing a team's quality, but I wouldn't say they're totally without use. The higher you start off in the polls, the harder it is for you to slip much farther than a couple spots unless you just totally screw up. Our preseason rankings of late have certainly helped us keep our place in the polls.

Polls, yes; pundits' minds, Nah. Starting higher in the polls does have the advantage you pointed out.

It looks like the Hinnen guy might be the closest to what I think, although I might flip Louisville with maybe Stanford or uga. There's no doubt that schedules are playing a big part of this.

Yea but then look at Auburn 2004.

Preseason Poll was pretty significant there.

There were 3 teams without a loss that year. And the 1 team loss that made it to the championship game had a much tougher schedule than the others. It's just like when TCU or Boise State go undefeated in a year and a 1 loss SEC team jumps ahead of them. You can't say Auburn didn't go to the big game just because they started lower than the others.

USC and OU were #1 and 2 to start the season.
Auburn started the season 17 in the AP and 18 in the coaches. (AP was used by the BCS that year)

One could say that the reason they never jumped to 1 or 2 is because they started too low.
Even if they played more ranked teams than both OU and USC.

Now of course these aren't preseason polls, they're sports writer's predictions.

It doesn't matter what the hell we are ranked during the preseason as long as we take care of business on the field.

Ehh, whatever. I thought it was pretty funny when Tony Barnhart (I think) on the CBS football spectacular show predicted Clemson and Ohio State in the BCS CG.
If Clemson beats UGA and us, of course, they should be, but they won't. They won't beat us or UGA. Don't they know that sometime during the season when Clemson's receiving all the hype, they pull a Clemson?! Ohio State won't go undefeated again this year either.
