AP Releases Preseason Top 25 Poll

5

No surprises at the top--USC, Bama, then Honey Badger-less LSU. Clemson comes in at the #14 spot. Other ACC schools include FSU at #7 and VPI at #16. Around the Southeast, UGA begins at #6 and Carolina at #9. Arkansas starts at #10 and the Gators begin 2012 as the #23 team. All that being said, these rankings mean nothing. My opinion is that there should not be preseason polls...the polls should first be released sometime mid-season to avoid bias towards teams that receive extra hype before the season. Let's face it, teams that are ranked higher entering the year have an advantage over others. On the bright side, this is another indication that football season is right around the corner!
