Umm, they'll lose at least six off their D (2 S, 2 LB, and 2 DL) and 3 of their 4 top WRs. I also don't know where you're getting top 3 from; Athlon and National champs.net both have Bama at one and A@M at 7-8 in their early 2013 top 25. NC.net is generally very close to the first AP poll of each season.
I'm not saying they won't be good. I think they'll be really good next year. I just think you're underestimating their personnel losses and exaggerating their likely preseason rank.
