FYI, to those of you who might care where Phil ranks us: on his blog today he posted us as #10, and posted his usual stat-sheet and breakdown. See:

Solid. Guy really knows his stuff. Sucks seeing him project Jhaustin Thomas as a starting DE. Hate he didn't make the grades to get in.

This is a more talented and experienced team than many realize. It isn't very likely that a new guy will walk into a starting position.

He's got Georgia ranked ahead of us. Again.

At least everyone has stopped ranking Georgia AND Clemson ahead of us even when we beat them.

Everyone is high on Georgia right now. Until they have two mediocre seasons, they will always be ranked above us. Media is convinced that last years 8 win season was a fluke

To be honest, it was a bit of a fluke because of all of their injuries. Yeah I know injuries happen to all teams, but that many injuries to that many contributors is an extreme fluke.

UGA and FL had a bad case of the injuries (FL added some other issues in as well).

Georgia switching defenses this year without the proper players is going to cause them problems in run support.

His projected top 25 (meaning USA and AP )has Georgia ranked at #11, it isn't his ranking.

He hasn't ranked Georgia yet and has us at #10 and I doubt he has them unranked.

I believe his preseason list is for 2013. He says it was from LAST April

There are 9 teams in the (2013?) preseason top 25 not yet mentioned in his 2014 list for #40-#9. Only 8 spots left. At least one of them will be omitted from the top 40 for 2014 - Missouri? UCLA? Baylor? Georgia? These are the four lowest rated in the preseason list shown not yet on the 2014 top 40 list.

This is what I'm looking at with Georgia #11. It says it is his 2014 AP projections

The heading to this list does not say it is a 2014 projection at all. Steele is bragging that he was a "perfect 25 of 25 picked last April." He has to be talking about how his 2013 preseason top 25 all ended the 2013 year in the top 25 for 2013 (with some obvious shuffling around).

Correction - My previous post is not correct. If you click on the video link above the list quoted, where he says he was a "perfect 25 of 25 last April" he was talking about the AP preseason top 25 for 2013. In other words he is saying he correctly guessed what teams would appear in the AP 2013 top 25 projections

But the list quoted in the first post to this topic, that shows Georgia #11, this is his projection for the AP top 25 for 2014, not his list. So he is again trying to guess how the AP voters will vote.

By the way, his 2013 preseason projection was very different from the final AP 25 for 2013, found here.
http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/rankings/ap

His 2013 preseason list included 9 that were not in the final 2013 AP ranking, including Georgia and Florida. He picked us as #9 and we finished #4. He picked FSt #13 and did not list Auburn, Michigan St or UCF in the top 25 and all of these finished in the top 10.

You know, if Auburn finishes ninth that'll likely mean they finished the season with 10 or more wins—in back to back seasons.

If I were you not only would I accept that, I'd hope for it. It would be an accomplishment, yes, a milestone, for the program you're a fan of.

If Phil gives us a favorable ranking , he "knows his stuff"
If not, he's a "blowhard/does anyone actually read his magazine?"
