Take That…the Top 25

By Todd Neeley

 Since this is the first year for the “Take That” blog, this of course is our first crack at putting together a preseason top 25 college football poll.

 Unlike mainstream college football writers, I’m going to go out on a limb with some of my picks. Not just to be different, but because every year there are a handful of teams that step up and ‘shock’ the football world.

 So here we go:

  1. Alabama

 2. Ohio State

 3. Nebraska

 4. Boise State

 5. Texas

 6. Florida

 7. TCU

 8. Virginia Tech

 9. Oklahoma

10. Oregon

11. Iowa

12. Arkansas

13. Wisconsin

14. Miami

15. USC

16. LSU

17. Texas A&M

18. Georgia Tech

19. Penn State

20. Georgia

21. Oregon State

22. North Carolina

23. Pitt

24. BYU

25. Colorado
