As much as I like college football it is tough for me to look at a poll and feel it deserves any importance when nothing that counts has occurred yet.
Originally posted by EladarIts just a little barometer, only important if your in the top 5. But expect every team to finish in a different spot.
Pre-season polls are very important. Teams don't move down unless they lose. If a team wants to play for the MNC, then the best case scenerio is to be a pre-season #1 or #2 and have a very easy schedule.

Five Big 10 schools in the top 25. That's what I like to see. Respect to the one conference that really matters.
Originally posted by EladarAaaah yes, the Sooners...."the best Texans money can buy." The only reason the entire state of Texas doesn't float off into the Gulf of Mexico is because oklahoma sucks!!
How many years? About the same as the number of years Keith Jackson can keep pumping the conference from the booth.
But hey, I'm hoping that tOSU is able to dominate the conference for a couple of more years. tOSU is OU's only chance of winning a MNC.
