    Sure. LSU will find out what happens when you have three good good qb's. Cal will find out what happens when you have zero. :hihi:

    When was the last time the none of the preseason top five finished in the top 5?


    Looking at this poll, I think that is a good possibility.

    This poll is meaningless to me and even the AP people have said they don't want to make the news so they should discontinue it.

    From this week's Sporting News:

    "2005 was out of the ordinary for college football. We expect 2006 to hold the same surprises we have seen since the 2000 season.

    Oklahoma was 7-5 in 1999, 13-0 in 2000. Ohio State was 7-5 in 2001, 14-0 in 2002. LSU was 8-5 in 2002 and 13-1 in 2003. All three followed an ordinary season with a national championship. Most recently, Auburn was 8-5 in 2003 and 13-0 in 2004 but didnt get a chance to play for the national title."

    This will be some year!!!!

    Well, I think Tennessee's QB problems of last year are fresh in everyone's mind, making them think that LSU could have a problem with the QB position not having "one" guy. Of course, we who follow things more closely are a lot more confident that 1) JR is the guy, and 2) JR and MF are both better options than Ainge or Clausen were.

    They should also cancel their post-season ratings
