  • Big East Teams left home from Bowls – Connecticut (4-8) and Syracuse (2-10).

Now that that has been said, her is my list of top 10 Overrated teams:

  • 10. #14 Michigan State – still a talented ball team, but they have a lot of talent that needs replaced.
  • 9. #19 Oklahoma State – still a talented ball team, but they have a lot of talent that needs replaced.
  • 8. #21 Stanford – still a talented ball team, but they have a lot of talent that needs replaced.
  • 7. #2 USC – has a legitimate shot at playing for a National Championship but would be lucky to break 8-4 in the SEC or 10-2 in B1G or XII.
  • 6.#8 South Carolina – Off field issues may cause on field troubles.  Lattimore can’t carry the whole team.
  • 5. #17 Texas – While Tradition is important, there is a limit to the number of votes it should by.  Although slightly better than last year, this team still has work to do.
  • 4. #5 Oregon – They still need to fill some key positions befor they are worthy of a top 5 but easily a top 20.
  • 3. #15 Ohio State – Talent laden roster, but they haven’t proven anything yet. 
  • 2. #16 Texas Christian — This aint the MW.  TCU like WV won’t be able to adjust to the consistency of quality in just the first year.
  • 1.  #10 West Virginia — WV’s lack of success in the Big XII will prove what a huge difference there is in the quality teams between the Big East & Big XII. will finish in the middle of the conference.

Underrated (in no particular order)

  • #22 Kansas State – will finish well better than 6th in the Big XII, I say #2.
  • #20 Nebraska – will vie for the Legends Division crown even with the toughest schedule in B1G.
  • #23 Florida – passes Soth Carolina for the SEC East #2 spot.
  • #25 Boise State – May .. again May Fall to Michigan State but will rattle off 11 in a row after.
  •  #12 Wisconsin – will walk away with the Leaders Division crown.

We get statrted in 10 days.
