CFR Preseason Top Ten/Top Teams

I'm still working on my preseason Heisman list.  That's a bit more tricky than "top 10 teams and change".

Oh, and this may not be the CFR final rock-solid top ten.  I'm still getting feedback from my fun football friends who often know more than I do and can rightfully scold any odd choices.

Here's the list, and explanations in an update later, or in a new post, later.

  1. USC
  2. Louisville
  3. California
  4. Florida
  5. Boise State
  6. Auburn
  7. Virginia Tech
  8. Miami
  9. Arizona State
  10. Michigan
Others under consideration:
Utah
Iowa
Bowling Green
Texas
Texas A&M
Oklahoma

As you can see we have five of the Big Six in here, all within the top five.  There are three "western" teams, one southwestern (I think ASU is southwest), one midwest, three from the south and one from the atlantic coast region (ish).  CFR supports all good football teams, whatever the geography, and even if we make incessantly make fun of their coach.

More to come...

You're going to be doing a lot of adjusting to this top 10 after about (1) week. I will give you credit for having the nerve to put in writting.

i hope you post your explanation soon, because that's the WEIRDEST most crack-smokin' preseason top 10 list i've EVER seen. looks to me like you've got your "big six" cart before your preseaon horse.

So, Boise, Utah, Bowling Green, and Texas AM, are better than Tennessee, Georgia,and LSU? You are in desperate need of some objectivity or reality or both.

You remember last year's bowl game between Tennesse and Texas AM?

+ Lord knows I love my Bronco's, but even I wouldn't rank them that high. We have one of the most advanced offenses in the game, definately. But we're really going to have to 'amp it up' before we can say with a straight face we'd give a game to Florida, USC or Auburn. We already proved it against Louisville and i see Cal in that same boat.

+ I thoroughly enjoyed watching Oklahoma get taken advantage of by USC, but to not even have them in the top 10? Regardless of scheme, if you have an entire line made up of 4 and 5 star recruits you're going to win some games pretty consistently.
