Actually sounds good to me.
Looks about right. Stanford would be 6
I would bump A&M from 3 (prolly still keep them in the top 5). They lose too much line talent for Manziel to repeat this year's performance. Probably a 2 or 3 loss team next season IMO. Don't know what Bama loses and returns but #1 is probably accurate for now. tOSU and Oregon are probably interchangeable. Oregon has really improved on defense the last few years and their offense is still worlds better than ours. I don't buy Georgia as a team to repeat this year's performance. Still top ten but I just don't see them in the top 5. Probably would put Stanford in there instead. Maybe LSU. Just my IMO. Not a bad preseason top 5.
They will lose almost their entire defense which was all seniors and juniors that are too talented to stay.
#5 probably should be LSU or FSU who both return a lot more.
As for Bama at #1, let's see which Juniors declare first. They should be no lower than 5 but they absolutely should be that low if they lose 12 of the starting 22 players (They are going to lose at least 9 in my opinion which along with Oregon is the most in that group). If TAMU loses most of its OL like many expect then look for them to be big disappointments if they are a top 5 preseason team.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that braska is top ten.

The branch you're on is making a cracking noise...
A shockingly reasonable top 5 from Brando...well done.
Only debate would be between Stanford/Georgia at 5 but you can't really go wrong with UGA with Murray returning
Agreed with the consensus - shockingly reasonable for Tim Brando. Then again... perhaps he is tired of getting completely OWNED on Twitter.
Dan the mushroom hunter, the deer slayer, and diehard Buckeye fan!

The Father, The Son... well, it's the

As long as were in the top 2 who cares? Top 2 gets us in the game where we can win it on the field.
