the coaches poll is out, kids. time to start bitching and complaining. actually i think you'd find it hard to argue with the top 4. Florida is the defending champs with virtually the exact same team coming back, Texas and Oklahoma were the top also rans, and USC is the most consistent team this decade no matter who they replace. but after that it's any one's guess. Bama is too high in my opinion, but i guess the Dark Lord gets more respect from his fellow coaches than Les Miles. Ole Miss is still a phantom top 10 team to me and i see 2008 Auburn or 2007 Arkansas written all over them. Ohio State is Ohio State. Penn State is about where i'd rank them. California and Oregon should be higher. Georgia and Virginia Tech should both be a little lower. Notre Dame is back in the top 25 because they beat Hawaii in the bowl game, whatever. North Carolina is WAY too low...at least for me. i see them as a potential top 10 sleeper. but yeah, mostly it's a list that tells us that we don't know nothing about nothing. so let's play some football.
