    From Better to Worse preseason ranking

    The AP and Coaches poll are yet to come but here there the conference picks from Athlon, CFN, ESPNFPI, Lindy's, Massey and Phil Steele.

    It is unanimous! The best teams are Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, Miami, Ohio St, Wisconsin, Washington, USC and of course Oklahoma.

    It is unanimous! Syracuse, Virginia, Rutgers, Illinois, Oregon St and Kansas. Ole Miss and Arkansas are about equally divided for the bottom in SEC West. Arizona St kept Colorado from getting all the votes in Pac12 South.

    Sorry. No link. I took all the preseason conference picks from all six of those sources and this is the unanimous conference picks, top and bottom. Kansas was picked to finish last in the Big 12 by all six sources and Oregon St was picked by all six to finish last in the Pac North.

    I just donít think UGA is a slam dunk. Lots of talent lost and no stacked depth, yet.

    They aren't a slam dunk but they are the most obvious choice. It would be considered an upset if they lose the East.

    Hoping to see Alabama ranked #1 in the first AP poll.

    Doesnít matter if Bama is #1 or not now. Iím more concerned about if Bama is #1 on my birthday.

    This ^^

    I won't lie - I'd rather see us ranked way too low (Even at like #6-10) than ranked #1. If memory serves, we don't have the best record when we are the pre-season #1......

    If not for Clemson beating us in the NCG the 2016 team would have started the season #1 and ended it #1 IIRC. I think it would be fun to actually complete that this time. And if there is a team to do it I think one with Tua at QB will have the best shot.

    We were #1 Preseason last year
    We were #1 Preseason in 2015
    We were #2 Preseason in 2012
    We were #2 Preseason in 2011
    We were #5 Preseason in 2009

    We were #1 Preseason in 2016
    We were #2 Preseason in 2014
    We were #1 Preseason in 2013
    We were #1 Preseason in 2010

    Sure is hard to tell when you are Preseason #1 and #2 ever year this decade.... (1st world Bama Football Problems)

    Re: From Better to Worse preseason ranking

    I would love to see #1preseason and post season. Wire to wire so to speak. Hasn’t been done in a while, just another accomplishment for Coach and the University. Plus, I would like to keep rising on the ‘ most weeks at #1 ‘ list. Again, just another accomplishment.
    to 16 and beyond........
