The AP Poll is the last of the preseason polls to be released. It is made up entirely of media voters. While it is interesting, it has no bearing on the College Football Playoff, though many playoff committee members likely use this poll as well as others, as a rough guide of who to watch as the season begins.
1. Ohio State
2. TCU
3. Alabama
4. Baylor
5. Michigan State
6. Auburn
7. Oregon
8. USC
9. Georgia
10. Florida State
11. Notre Dame
12. Clemson
13. UCLA
14. LSU
15. Arizona State
16. Georgia Tech
17. Ole Miss
18. Arkansas
19. Oklahoma
20. Wisconsin
21. Stanford
22. Arizona
23. Boise State
24. Missouri
25. Tennessee

Others receiving votes: Mississippi State 100; Texas A&M 61; Oklahoma State 46; Virginia Tech 42; Utah 36; Penn State 20; Louisville 12; Cincinnati 8; Nebraska 6; Kansas State 5; NC State 4; Florida 4; Texas 3; Michigan 2; Northern Illinois 2; Brigham Young 2; West Virginia 1; California 1; Western Kentucky 1

I predict chaos for the season...But if that's not bold enough, Ohio State will loose not one, but two games they're not supposed too...

I'm just anxious to see if Strong is going to go with Swoopes or Heard at QB when UT opens against the Irish.

Texas coach Charlie Strong wants to 'restart' after Notre Dame blowout. Restart implies that they started previously. I don't think they've ever gotten the program off the ground under Strong. I like his values, but there has got to be some major changes made if Texas is ever going to "rebuild".

In contrast, my other team Utah got things done; unlike some of the other teams in the PAC12.

Am I talking to myself here?

Week 4 observations: Charlie Strong continues to be weak and Utah continues to dominate. So much fun watching them destroy the ducks last weekend in every aspect of the game.

It's kind of a mess out here in AZ with both the Wildcats and Sun Devils having some really ugly losses.

No, just too damn hurt to respond. You know I'm right with you on the \m/, but this has become almost to unbearable to watch. I just don't know what happened to the program. Seems just like yesterday my heart got torn out when Colt went down in the National Championship. Now we can't fucking beat BYU. :bug:

You could have probably just stopped at "It's kind of a mess out there". LOL
You know things are turbulent at the top when your team (Utah) has a bye week and jumps 5 spots from 10 to 5. A lot of big losses in week 5.
