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.

I see that ESPN has Cal ranked at 7 in their little rankings. Seems kind of high.

Take a look at this crap- http://www.gousfbulls.com/ViewArticl...CLID=204781595

I know I'm stating the obvious, but they really need to do away with the coaches poll. And no way in hell should it be valid until at least 5 games into the season even if it were legitimate in the first place. And surely all ballots would be published. Seriously. Each of these messed up ballots has a tremendous impact on how the college season unfolds. Leavitt is sabotaging the entire sport.

Good call YaY, but why were you so confident? I know I was not as confident, but I liked what I saw last night. It was the kind of QB play I expect from a Tedford-coached guy, but it's been years now since we've seen it.

Honestly, I just felt that this is Cal's year to challenge for the Pac-10. Kevin Riley should understand that and step up. I always think highly of Cal but to me, it's just the QB play thats been holding them back. I felt that Kevin Riley is better than both Ayoob and Longshore so I made the prediction. Only time will tell if he's as good or better than Rodgers, but saturday was definitely a good start

To be honest, that's a lot more faith than I had, but I like the stong statement and after the first game, Riley made you look good. If you're right, Cal will be very difficult for any defense to defend.
