discuss. USC is losing leinart, and probably bush and white, as well as some defensive players and i believe 3 o-linemen (justice included). texas is going to get slaughtered by USC in the rose bowl, so voters for next year will have less confidence in vince young and his merry men. miami is returning tons of players, and the players they're losing already have guys getting in plenty of playing time behind them. kyle wright will be a junior and an easy preseason heisman candidate. so could they be #1? or be relegated to #2 behind texas?

Yeah, as much as I hate to admit it, Miami will probably be the preseason #1.

If Texas gets manhandled like you say they will, and Bama takes a loss(almost a given) and we win out, I definitely think we should be #1, considering that we are returning almost every starter on both sides of the ball, with great players stepping in where we aren't. Next year is our year, no matter where we are ranked before the season.

First of all, I'm sick of preseason polls because they influence the way the rest of the year is played out. If a team starts at 1 or 2 and goes undefeated, they're in the nat'l championship. But if, say, USC, Texas, and Bama go undefeated like this year, Bama gets screwed because the other two were expected to be good.

And why is Florida always in the top 10 preseason?

1: preseason polls are going nowhere
2: florida is always loaded with talent

1) Doesn't mean I can't dislike them.
2) Talent doesn't always equal wins. See Mets, New York.

1: Numbered list are so in right now.
2: Florida will be ranked high in the preseason polls; agreed they are talented.

Notre Dame has lots of young players, and the media LOVES ND for some damn reason... so if they don't lose another game... they could end up 1 or 2. Miami will definitely be in the top 3 though. Not so sure about Wright being a heisman candidate that quickly... if he has a good year next year, then I say he is a candidate for his Senior year.

Just so LSU can beat them again and cause all their fans to pout. :D

why? usually the QB of the team that's preseason #1 is automatically a heisman candidate

USC will be #1. New Qb will be John David Booty a blue chip guy who's better then Matt Lienart.

Yea and its bull too because if Bama goes undeafeted they deserve to be 1 with there schedule. IF they win out they will have beaten: Gators, Aubern, LSU, Tenn., and Georgia

Didn't we already discuss this in another thread. I'll copy & paste what I said.

It's hard to look ahead to say what teams will be preranked where because we don't know who's returning.

If Bush & White return to USC & they win it all they'll probably remain #1 because JD Booty is quite capable & has the football pedigree.

If both Bush & White decide to leave & Texas returns Vince Young the hype surrounding him could cause them to be rated #1 which wouldn't be substanciated.

If all three decide to high tail it & Brady Quinn decides to stick around Notre Dame will be #1 & the list goes on...

Think preseason will be if all juniors remain (notable seniors leaving):
1-USC (Leinart, Byrd, Lutui, Rucker, Startz)
2-Texas (Scott, Allen, Wright, Dibbles, Harris, Griffin, Huff)
3-Notre Dame (Stovall, Fasano, LeVoir, Hoyte)
4-Miami (S.Moss, Winston, Harris, Nanton, Carroll, McIntosh, Jennings, Maxey, Threat)
5-LSU (Addai, Green, Whitworth, Livings, Wroten, K.Williams, Vaughn, Prude)
6-Virginia Tech (Imoh, Humes, King, Montgomery, Butler, Tapp, J.Williams, Hamilton)

Think it should be:
1-USC
2-Miami
3-Notre Dame
4-LSU
5-Virginia Tech
6-Texas

This helps Notre Dame out a lot. Same thing with Vince Young & Texas.

Doesnt work that way in college football when you could possibly lose the heart and soul of the team
