The King of College Football Phil Steele has released the 2012 edition of his College Football Preview which includes a few shockers.Remember, Steele basis his Top 25 on where a team will finish, not just how good a team is pre-season.
PHIL STEELE TOP 25
1. FLORIDA STATE
11. OHIO STATE
12. OKLAHOMA STATE
19. MICHIGAN STATE
21. NOTRE DAME
23. SOUTH CAROLINA
24. VIRGINIA TECH
25. WEST VIRGINIA
Steele is picking FLORIDA STATE to win it all. He reasons that with 17 returning staters back and the only serious away challenges being at NC STATE on Oct 6, at MIAMI on Oct 20 and at VIRGINIA TECH on Nov 8, the SEMINOLES have a shot at going undefeated. If so and they win the ACC Conference Championship they could sneak into the Championship Game. QB EJ MANUEL doesn't impress me and the team looked uninspired the last 4 games of the year in 2011. I think Steele blew it this year.
Other surprises included TEXAS at #7, UNC at #13, Conference USA's UCF at #15 and Big East's USF at #20.
What do you guys think?... [More]

LINDYS TOP 25

12. MICHIGAN STATE
14. OHIO STATE
16. OKLAHOMA STATE
18. VIRGINIA TECH
22. KANSAS STATE
24. BOISE STATE
MR. DIEHARD'S TAKE: Louisville at #23 is a stretch. Tennessee should have made it considering 19 starters return including a healthy QB Tyler Bray and WR Justin Hunter. What do you guys think?
