That makes 11 preseason top 25 teams that are currently ranked. Is it always this bad? 3 of the preseason top 25 including #6 Texas A&M have losing seasons.

Unranked to start the season are #4 TCU, #6 LSU, #10 PSU, #11 Tennessee, #12 Washington, #13 K St, #16 FSU, #17 UNC, #18 UCLA, #20 Tulane, #22 Oregon St, #23 Coastal Carolina, #24 Texas, and #25 UTSA.

Surprise..ND over ranked! TCU has played nobody with the collapse of Oklahoma and TX their schedule is weak. A&M has been a disaster.

PSU escaped Purdue and played well against anyone not named Michigan or tOSU. No upsets, so far. The upstart is Tennessee but we'll see how they play Saturday.

Yes, not a great forecasting job by the "experts."

Michigan State and Texas A&M in particular are epic fails.

Jimbo might have been advised not to take those overwrought verbal shots at Saban preseason, even if they were justified. The entire Aggie program seems to have imploded.

I've been on the "no polls until November" train for years. It's only going to get worse with more roster turnover due to opt outs, transfer portal, NIL, etc.

Not sure what your point is? We still suck, Franklin sucks, we are overrated and the kicker......wait for it........wait for it....we are o- for forever vs top 10 teams so the program is in shambles. Why you ask? Because we have not beaten scUM and O$U. Absolutely nothing else matters.

Signed,
Negative Nellie PSU fans

Writer's Note: Franklin does not get a free pass on his abysmal record knocking off top 10 teams and his inability to beat the two favored nations. However, this season has been a solid one that we should feel good about to build for the future.

This has happened before with the rating services. 2008 comes to mind. They had Wisky rated way ahead of us until we went up to Camp Randall and thumped them 48-7. The year before was pretty much the same way until we beat them 38-7 at the Beav. Get no respect.

This is why you don't determine Championships via the opinion of non-participants which have no bearing on the outcome and tinged with massive amounts of bias. Championships, and the opportunity to advance to play for championships, should be determined on the field of play by the combatants, not by the opinions of non-participants.
