Default ESPN's way to early top 25

http://www.espn.com/college-football...ly-top-25-2017

Thoughts?


Here is a few of mine:

1. Bama will again make another run for a National Championship. It seems that no matter how many they lose to the NFL, they come back stronger the next year.

2. I've heard a few people high on FSU but how will the running game look without Cook. They kick the season off against Alabama in a game that will prove if FSU will be able to contend for a National Championshp.

3. Penn State: Returning 9 Offensive starters and 7 Defensive. I believe it will come down to them and Ohio State in that division.

4. UGA: Returning 10 defensive starters. The East will be down again this year and UGA has to be the favorite to win the East.

5. Clemson: They have recruited top talent over the last few years. How will their offense look without Watson, Williams, Gallman , Scott, and Leggett. The ACC Atlantic will be determined when FSU rolls into town.

Louisville will be a factor in the ACC Atlantic next year as well.

If Clemson can win 10 games with Cole Stoudt, they will be ok

Yeah...they are losing their starting RB and top three WRs. Taking that and how they looked like down the stretch...they might be a 8 or 9 win team next year.

Clemson will have a lot of questions going into next season but they have loaded up on recruiting talent. I don't see them putting up numbers like they did the last two years but they will still be the favorite to win the ACC along with FSU. Majority of their D-Line will be back and their secondary will be decent even with Tankersley gone. They have Auburn and FSU at home with Louisville, VT, and South Carolina on the road.

Cole Stoudt was only the starting QB for a fraction of that season. And when he came in to the game for Deshaun it usually resulted in an INT.

If Deshaun goes to Auburn (or wherever) and Cole Stoudt was Clemson's finished out his career as starter, Clemson never makes playoffs.

We'll win the East next year and 9 or 10 games. We should be about fifteenth

Clemson's ranking seems about right.

Georgia is a joke as top 15 team. Texas shouldn't be on the list until they actually play a game with the new staff. Same with LSU. To finish strong with an interim coach in a down year shouldn't get you a top 15 ranking. And Auburn will take another half season to not suck.

I'll be keeping an eye on FSU and this is the year for Oklahoma State to get into the playoffs.

I get why this is done but it's so stupid. Way too early to account for injuries, duds, surprises.

The article has UGA at #15. Probably realistic, especially if they can get their offense moving.

I admit I did not open the link. Going by what was in the OP. I guess it was bullet item 4. Not a #4 ranking.
