Annoyingly it's probably about right, surprised by the difference in 1st place votes between Clemson and 'bama but by a long way they seem to be above the others.

Think Florida is probably higher than they should be at this point, also Texas A&M; would like to see Auburn higher and sad to see FSU where they are, but it's probably about right at the moment.

Utah made a huge jump. Wasn't expecting that... I don't think they are that good to jump many of the other teams.

I was a bit surprised we didn't get a couple homer votes for UGA or Oklahoma.  

That's really terrible about Florida State, but you are correct.  Taggert is going to have one of the hottest seats outside of Clay Helton this year.  

Personally, I;m a bit surprised Army didn't sneak into the back of the top 25.

IMO, it all depends on how the teams above them clear out, and what the quality of the PAC12 is like this year.

Army should he been in the top 25.  Not buying Washington St being a top 25 team yet.

Agree with both.  I'm also not sure how I view a Brandon Wimbush-led UCF team either.

Not sure I'd have Clemson over Alabama right now. Losing your entire starting D-Line, 3 of which were top 17 picks isn't going to be easy to replace, no doubt they have good players to replace them, but how good and how soon? That remains to be seen. At least they have T-Lawrence still, but at this point on paper I'm taking Alabama to be the better team across the board.

true however they do pretty well replacing those guys. I remember 2015 they had like 3 starters back and still had a top 10 defense.

Top 10 looks about right to me. I'm bullish on Oklahoma right now. 

11-15 has the right teams, but I'd probably go: Washington, Oregon, A&M, Penn State, Utah

16-20 is a toss up for me. I'm skeptical about UCF and Wisconsin with their QB situations and I'd probably drop Auburn a few spots. 

21-25 for me would go: Stanford, Iowa State, Boise State, Army.

Definitely not mad about it, and the rankings are going to change dramatically after week 1 anyway.
