I really think this is one of the weakest times I've ever seen in college football. Last years preseason top 10 teams would slaughter this years.

Florida, Texas, and Oklahoma should expect to have worse teams than last year, Alabama looks the best in the nation, but still not as good as last year. Ohio State is improved, but not much, basically the same team as last year.

I guess it just looks weaker without big name QBs and a slew of returning Heisman winners.

It is pretty much the same teams minus USC. And I don't see last years LSU & Ole Miss teams slaughtering anyone.

throw these out. VT, OSU and Bama all go 12-1 we all know who the 2 teams in there will be because of this poll, and not how they play on the field. Cold world we live in...

Same teams, but with Florida, Texas, and Oklahoma all putting in new QBs I'm expecting them to be alot weaker. I seeing Florida and Texas in the top 4 with new QBs suprised me alot. Texas will likely cruise through a weak Big 12 however.

Us going 12-1? Yeah I can only pray for that. The games against, GT, UNC & at Miami are no cakewalks. And that is if we can beat a tough Boise team.

honestly, i'm surprised to see uf that high. however, i guess the pollsters think like me. i'd be willing to say that if john brantley were uf's starting qb last season, we would have won the national championship. he just fit the personell we had so much better than tebow. this season, we unfortunately will have to play bama at least once with a re-tooled defense. if one of our young cb's can step up, though, i have no doubt that uf will make a serious run at the NC.

You guys would've gotten raped with Brantley, and there's no evidence that suggests he's clutch or can lead Florida through an SEC schedule undefeated. Tebow is one of the greatest players in not only SEC history, but college football history. To insinuate that an inexperienced sophomore QB could do what Tebow couldn't do, which was beat a superior Alabama team (Tebow had ya'll undefeated leading up to the SECCG) and then beat a very good Texas team, solely because he's a more traditional pocket passer is absolutely absurd.

There's no way Brantley will leave school and be thought of as a superior QB than Tebow, and even if he's a better prospect, that still doesn't directly translate to wins. He's not going to achieve more, and he's not going to break any of Tebow's records. If Gators fans are thinking that's a possibility, then you guys are just trying to convince yourselves that Brantley is better than he really is or you guys don't realize how spectacular the run was that Tebow led ya'll on.

Navy always goes 9-3 against a decent schedule and yet they get no love. They've proven to be more deserving of a top 25 slot than FSU.

defense should be more or less the same, but hopefully the offense isn't as bad as it was for the first 7 games or so in 2009. The potential is there for Ohio State to be an elite offensive team this year at least. Agreed though, the top 10 has a lot more ?s than last year's top 10.

I don't expect LSU to finish in the top 25 at the end of the year.

I don't see how OU isn't the highest rated Big 12 team. Their defense is always stout and their offense is going to be destroying teams this year. Landry is going to have a huge year.

Boise State gettin snubbed....lol.

I think they deserve to be 2 or 3, but I understand it would just hurt the big schools' feelings if they were that high.

There's no way Brantley will leave school and be thought of as a superior QB than Tebow, and even if he's a better prospect, that still doesn't directly translate to wins. He's not going to achieve more, and he's not going to break any of Tebow's records. If Gators fans are thinking that's a possibility, then you guys are just trying to convince yourselves that Brantley is better than he really is or you guys don't realize how spectacular the run was that Tebow led ya'll on.
no, i'm a gator fan. i appreciate everything tim tebow did and i know how much of every bit of success can be attributed to him. but the offense was just not very good last year, say what you want. brantley is a much better downfield passer than tim is/was, and the big play was the one thing holding uf back. that and spikes' nagging hamstring injuries. my claim was pretty ridiculous. but don't say john brantley couldn't have led that team through our regular season schedule undefeated because that schedule was a cakewalk. i think we would have given alabama a much better game with john brantley at the helm though. tebow was just ineffective that game... i guess it didn't help that demps got hurt. but brantley is a much better pure passer than tim and that's what i think we needed against alabama. half of our drives were three and out because passes were either inaccurate or rushed (and i think we all know that a rushed tebow pass is not a good one) or whatever.

i think that the john brantley we see this year, in the starting job for the 2010 gators, probably would have put up gaudy numbers. yeah, he probably wouldn't have won the national championship (just hyperbole really), but i think he'll be THAT good.

Damn. Looking at the list of teams receiving votes shows just how far we've fallen off the radar. Even Central Michigan has a vote, and they just lost their career leader in everything. :(

Still a new QB. Bradford was clearly the starter last season.

Yep. Playing 10.5 games and the bowl game last year plus having a whole offseason of leading the team means nothing. ::eyeroll::

landry jones wasn't that good and lost his left tackle and best receiver... oklahoma is a top 25 team, they have no business in the top 10, though.
