    it's about perception and the SEC is 'dominant'... sure, i will grant that the SEC normally fields better teams, but, for all intensive purposes, the SEC is the AL east... sure, the cream is very good. but, there's more to it than... the conference has great top end teams, but they face each other once a year... i don't understand the 'difficulty' when you face 5 teams that can only beat up on weanies (kentucky)...

    it's all a peacocking thing that goes on in the FCS...
    IMO, you can say that about pretty much every conference. Certain conferences follow patterns where a certain amount of teams are good then there's like two up and coming teams and then the wildcard team that surprises people.

      Keep in mind that a lot of the bottom feeders in the Big 12 (not all... looking at you, OU) will schedule 1AA teams in an effort to at least boost their record.

        Va Tech is so overrated it's ridiculous. Last year Clemson started 9th only to drop out of top 25 after week 1. I can't understand how people fall in love with QB's who can't pass. It's like having a 5 tool baseball player but he can't hit. Hitting is the most important tool. And so is passing

          I agree, I think Va Tech is very overrated. They're more like a top 15-20 type team, they're not an NC contending team in any aspect in my mind. They were pretty ok last year and just got lucky with the way the ACC worked out.

            Well word on the streets is Tyrod Taylor has made some big strides in the passing department.

                    That's probably the worst poll I've seen. No pun intended.

                        ouch.
                        florida not being number 1 is inexcusable.

                          list is a ******* joke if someone could vote a sub 500 team who plays 4 mediocre teams and one good team #23.
                          Sorry but this post is just a flat out joke.
                          First of all a pre-season poll is a projection so last season is only one of the factors that should be taken into account.
                          Expanding on that. If 33 of last years 40 touchdowns were scored by underclassmen and you return 36 of the td's you have some margin of improvement.
                          returning your leading sack-artist as well as your tackle leader and most of the defense and all but 1 of your offensive players that helps as well.

                          Just another question, why is everybody bashing ND's schedule whilst its quite a bit tougher still than a schedule like that of for instance penn state.
                          Also keep in mind that there were a bunch of teams that would have been expected to be good (michigan, washington) or at least mediocre but prolly better (washington state and purdue) when the games where planned.

                          We play 1 non-bcs team and that is quite a capable and dangerous team in nevada with one of the more exposive offenses in college football.

                          I do give that ND has a favourable schedule due to a lot of teams not returning their qb for instance (usc, mich, msu, purdue, bc amongst others bring new qb's) but there is a bunch of reasons why ND could be ranked making your post somewhat of a joke.

                          But please do go ahead in flaming ND for the fun of it, I know there are a few people here who enjoy that, but if you do do that please make sure that your post at least makes some form of sense, this way you just make yourself look really dumb.

                            IMO, Notre Dame is gonna surprise some people this year and very well could end up being ranked top 15. Clausen is making strides and has excellent targets in Floyd and Tate. Not to mention, Kyle Rudolph who's coming off a solid season at TE. Like wicket said, most of the defense is returning and Manti Te'o is a guy who can come in and contribute right away.
