UCLA should be top 10.
Stanford is too high.
LSU should be no.2
Notre Dame will go 8-4
FSU will have to earn a ranking this year after choking like wussy dogs the previous 2
Thought ATM would be mid top 10; no lower than 7

Typical media stupidity - ND loses 4 of 5 OL. Top TE, Top WR, Top RB. On defense loses best player, at least 2 DL and at least 2 other starters.
That is arguably the most important 12 starters on the team (considering their QB play has be average).
But sure, they will be RIGHT BACK in it....
Very few teams can reload OLines in college. UGA did it really well this year, but had some damn good recruits to do it. Bama has done it pretty well under Saban, but he has put a TON of emphasis on OL recruiting and also utilized JUCO players at that position well. Next years team's success will hinge on these spots again - but we are plugging in 3 and 4 yr players that were highly recruited. Not sure ND will be doing that.
Whoever put this together is an old-timer. LSU hasn't been known as "Louisiana State" in years, and USC hasn't gone by "Southern California" since I was a kid in the 70's.

Not sure what the love with LSU is. Outside of their 2011 team they've woefully underachieved.
Chris your are such a homer! I don't see auburn anywhere..(g)
One of the defensive and offensive lineman both announced coming back yesterday and the rb woods is also rumored to b leaning on returning.
USC at 19 is ranked to high (g)

Think Stanford is ranked a little high. Biggest Suprise is Ole Miss back in the top 25. Everything else looks about right.
LSU played the most freshmen in the country this year. & only lost games to Bama & UF. LSU will be a pain in the arse as always!
