In just four weeks, the 2013 college football season will kick-off and the top teams in the nation will take the field. The USAToday Preseason Coaches Poll has just been unveiled. Where does your team rank in the poll? The big surprise in my opinion is that OU is ranked #16 after Texas at #15. Seriously??? and Texas A&M at #6, as they will surprise no-one this season. The 2013 season will provide more on the field insight into the have and have-nots of the college football world. With all the talk of leaving or re-scrambling the NCAA into two groups, one that would be made up of the elite teams paying a stipend to their players and the rest staying in a similar position to where they are today. So, performance on the field is crucial to determining potentially some of the border-line team’s fate, should the discussions come to pass. Ranking high in the pols at the end of the season will be important.
The big conference breakdown for the poll is as follows: SEC has 6, Big Ten has 5, Pac-12 has 5, Big 12 has 4, ACC comes in with 2
