4. Notre Dame
6. Ohio St
10. tie Texas, TCU, Oklahoma, Oregon St, South Carolina
The above takes into account some players who I think will declare for the draft, but once all that dust settles, the rankings could be much different. If Chip Kelly leaves for the NFL, then I would drop Oregon, and USC's ranking is based on Kiffin Hiring a OC who will be the play caller as well.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Notre Dame loses more lineman than Alabama, plus most of their D. No way they stay in the Top10
USC will be way lower
Ohio State will need to move up
We have 9 seniors, and most of our defense will be back. McCarron, Yeldon, and all WRs will be back
4. Ohio State
10. Texas A&M
Will someone please PM me when Nova goes off on the retardation that is this poll? TIA.
I have Bama losing 3 O-linemen and 2 D Linemen, and Notre Dame losing 4 O-linemen and 1 D Lineman. So 5 each. I have Nix coming back, but if he goes to the draft that will certainly affect ND's ranking.
TCU returns 10 starters on defense, including 3 freshmen. They should have a lights out D next year.
I got you
But forget that ND will lose
and 2 WRs
on an offense that is not very good.
They lose 1 Dlineman atleast, but also2 Sr. RBs
Notre Dame does not have the depth Alabama does, and yet we only lose 9 SRs
Let me know when they can score...in the big 12

I mean you had a QB who was playing/practicing at RB before their other QB got a DUI and kicked out. TCU is a young team
I know you do not want to see it, but FSU will start off in the top 10 again next year especially if we beat NIU to finish 12-2
And what QB is coming in....??
I am pretty certain that you will beat NIU, though that win does not really mean anything. You lose your QB, and your program is not known for developing QB's under your current coaching staff. I saw little improvement for EJ Manuel over the past 2-3 years. I think I will probably have Clemson ranked over you guys.
Same guy they have now, but he will have an entire offseason of being the man at QB. Should see significant improvement out of the position. The coaching staff has a pedigree for developing QB's.
Yeah that is why Ponder went from a little known three star to a top 10 pick or Jamarcus Russel went from a player no one talked about to being the number 1 pick. What they do in the NFL is on them, but you are really stupid, and EJ is projected to go in the top three rounds despite him being inconsistent, and he still has the senior bowl and combine to improve his stock like Ponder did.
I just dont see it. Not hating but yall will have an unproven QB. And if you plan on starting tricket then I really dont see it. That kid needs some HGH in the worst way. I just dont see the media hyping you guys the way they have for the last few years this time around. Who all do you guys loose off the 2 deep on D?
Those guys all have/had superior physical attributes. That is what got them drafted. None of them really lived up to their physical potential while in college. EJ will get drafted off of his measurables, not his QB actual play on the field.
I agree. Where would preseason polls be without our annual preseason champs???
We lose Vince Williams, Tank Carradine, likely Bjoern Werner, Brandon Jenkins, Likely Xavier Rhodes, Amp Mccloud, Everette Dawkins and that is it. Other than that we pretty much return our whole defense. We will see once the new polls come out next year, but it will only help if we do not start in the top 10, because maybe it will motivate our team more to prove people wrong.
Nope...sorry it wont happen. They couldnt score in the Big12 and they may be improved, but that does nothing. Top10 teams win 10 games, and TCU will not win 9
You got FSU confused with the Dawgs
Just guessing, but I think it has something to do with OSU at 6...I predict we'll preseason 1 or 2
maybe maybe not. I am certainly not married to anyone I put in the top-10. I will do another post bowl poll after everyone has declared, and I am sure it will look much different, then different again in the summer.
