College football countdown: SN's preseason top 100

Wednesday, May. 26, 2010 - 10:49 a.m. ET


A new decade of college football begins this season, but Sporting News projects plenty of familiar names to fill the top 10 in 2010. Alabama and Ohio State are Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, in our preseason poll.
Sporting News will preview one top-100 team per day until the season kicks off, beginning with No. 100 New Mexico State on May 26 and ending with No. 1 Alabama on Sept. 2.
Among our top-100 notables:
• Only one BCS team—Washington State—did not make the top 100.
• The SEC West and ACC Coastal divisions each placed four teams among the Top 25.
• The Big 12 led with three teams in the top 10: No. 7 Nebraska, No. 9 Texas and No. 10 Oklahoma.
• The lowest-ranked teams in each BCS league: ACC (Maryland, 89), Big East (Syracuse, 99), Big Ten (Minnesota, 98), Big 12 (Kansas State, 85), Pac-10 (Washington State, NR), SEC (Vanderbilt, 83).

Schedule obviously. KU had a killer schedule last year and lost some close games. Plus all the uncertainty with Mangino didn't help.

The most talent was lost in WR where KU is stacked.

Although I agree MU has slightly better players (returning QB being most important), their schedule is quite tough this year.

With or without a sad schedule, KU isn't a better team than Missouri and won't finish with a better record. It's Gill's first year. I have a feeling there might be a few bugs to work out, hmm?

I think it's more likely that the jackass writer doesn't give a shit about anybody outside the top 25, and just kind of filled in names after that.

How the hell does OSU drop to 64? Did every starter on their team graduate?

Of course there will but in standings, if that is what this list is going after... KU could very well finish in front of Missouri. It's isn't exactly like MU is a loaded team or anything. They lost plenty of players.

Look at the schedules!

I think the players KU lost are more easily replaceable given their personell.

06-02-2010, 02:53 PM
The problem at KSU:

Offensively - still no clear cut starter at QB. The Oline is good to very good, the rbs (or should I say Daniel Thomas, is All B12), and the WR's are deep. That said, you can't have the ball in the hands of a ? and make the pundits feel warm and cozy.

Defensively - DL is filled with quite a few new comers. I'm good with the LB's in our 4-2-5, and I think our secondary is a strong-suit, but the DL............? Brandon Harold is a stud at SDE, not sure what is going to fill out the WDE spot, and the interior is going to have one of our new a JC recruits filling at least 1 spot.

Like I said, big question marks at key spots on both sides. That said, 85 is a fkn joke. I would have put us at or near 50.

I'd rank them at ten. They have a favorable schedule and alot coming back if the offense can play like it did vs Arizona they can easily compete for a spot in the title game. I fear two games though Kstate and Texas AM.

That was a fluke game the offense moved the ball well. K State will be tough because it's a thursday night game and a week before Texas so thats ripe for an upset. Texas AM at home is tough they should be a much improved team.

Hard to tell who is going to be that good outside of Alabama and a couple of the very top teams.

OSU with Pryor will be a good team.

I think Nebraska belong at around #20. I think they have a 7-5 finish. I just don't see how they move the ball.

If Iowa can survive their early game at Arizona, they should make a nice run. They have Ohio State, Penn State, and Wisconsin at home this year and are returning a load of starters from last year's team.

The Hogs better win 11 games with that schedule... 12 games and only 5 outside the state (playing A&M in Dallas, neutral field).

TN Tech
U LA-Monroe
A&M
Vandy
Gamecocks
Ole Miss
UTEP
Miss State
Auburn

That should be 9 wins ... Bama, LSU and Georgia could be tough, but geez... with that offense and even the slightest of improvements on defense and they should be playing in the SEC Title game.

Hey, we made it by a good 6 spots, you sumbitch. It's frightening that a directional Illinois school (Northern Illinois) that is in our non-conference schedule is ranked 45 spots ahead of us. We might end up with more felony arrests than wins this year. Hooray for the Fulmer Cup!

He could be a pretty good QB for us. Seems he has a good arm and can run the ball well so he should be a good fit for Petrino's offense. I will not miss Juice Williams missing wide open receivers by 15 yards anymore. The running game should be ok, we do have some talent at receiver and definite questions about the O-line. The defense, unless a miracle happens, is going to suck a big fat donkey dong.

Haha, why is there so much anti-KU venom on this board?

I know I'm new here and was eager to start posting because I'm excited for the Chiefs season but it doesn't really seem worth it if you can't support your local school without getting jumped on constantly for it.

Todd Reesing had some miracle games yes. He was a great QB. But he was like 5' 9" and made a ton of mistakes.

Kale Pick has better size, speed and arm. Will he make winning decisions like Reesing did so many times over the last 4 years? Who knows, we'll have to see. I just don't think it's the dropoff so many people are worried about. I pulled my hair out soooo many times watching Reesing. I loved the guy but I'm so glad he's gone.

As far as WR goes... I love how everyone just forgets about Jonathan Wilson. The guy has had some HUGE games in the past (thinking @ South Florida and a couple others). And Bradley Mcdougald is going to be great. Patterson moving back to WR is going to help and newcomers Christian Matthews (former QB ala Kerry Meier who made a spectacular TD catch in the spring game) and Chris Omigie will round out the receivers. Also you've got Fred McGriff's kid, 4 star Keeston Terry and my man Ricky Herod...

Toben Operum is a better RB situation than Jake Sharp as well.

All 5 OL starters return.

etc, etc...

Plus a schedule that is as good as you can hope for in the Big 12.

Guess we'll just have to play the games. I don't think Sporting News just picked names out of a hat.

Yeah but what does "better" really mean? Yes MU has the QB with experience so on the field MU is probably better, yes.

But that doesn't mean they'll finish higher.

MU has Oklahoma and Texas Tech, KU has Baylor and OK St... both have A&M this year.

Both will probably lose in Lincoln. Both will probably beat KSU.

May come down to the final game again.

Tebow was a career 66.4% passer with an average QB rating of 177.7.

In his first 2 years Pryor is a 58% passer with an average QB rating of 137.7. He barely threw for 2000 yards last year with 18TDs and 11ints, and 7 rushing TDs. To even think Heisman he has to step it up big time.

Listen, I know that Pryor can be terrible at times. I don't think he will ever be the player everyone expected him to be but I don't know if that is entirely his fault. Our O-line was terribly inconsistent last year. We couldn't establish a rotation due to guys not playing up to their talent level and injuries. From what I've been told the O-line is much better, especially at LT where Mike Adams is finally getting his sh*t together (he's put down the bong). This is a make or break year for him and I do expect great things from him this year. The running game will be better and Jim wil change his offense to suit Pryors talent. He's not T. Smith, but he will be fine. The question I have for you is how pissed off will you be when Bo leaves Nebraska for Ohio St. when Jim retires in 5 years? Just kidding. He has said OSU is his dream job.

Gotta love all the rivals that think KU will automatically suck. They were 6-6 in 2006 and went 12-1 the next season. It has been done before and it could happen again. Sure, I agree that there are a lot of question marks. But I will say that Turner Gill has been doing a pretty good job so far and has been saying all the right things and getting some good recruits. And the cupboard was not exactly left bare.

And pointing to last year, Mangino stuck with his guy (Reesing) far too long IMO. It was obvious that something was very wrong with Todd last year and that ended up costing the team some games (see KSU and TT). I think that was a major coaching blunder and not fair to the rest of the team.

But this is a whole new year in a new era and I am looking forward to seeing how the new coaching staff looks. On paper, they certainly look better than the old staff. Do I expect a BCS bowl? No, of course not. But I think an 8 win season is not out of the question. And that would probably put us in the top 25. If that happens, this ranking will not look so silly.

Of course, Turner Gill could turn uto to be the college version of Herm Edwards and KU could crash and burn. I don't quite see that happening, though.

KSU seems to be ranked quite low. Not sure what is up with that.

Obviously it was found out that Mangino was a complete A-hole to his players and I think alot of the guys quit on him. KU still put up some points last year, their defense however was absolutely pathetic.

Because Lew Perkins gave away free tickets to the bowl game so that the BCS committee would take them over a much more deserving MU.

If you think Terrell Pryor is a good QB you must be talking about yourself.

Terrell Pryor, mark my words. Will be a good player next year. He may even compete for the Heisman. Ohio State is going to be damn good. Even if he can't throw that well, who cares? He'll do enough, and get alot of TDs. There is zero chance he moves to WR. While it would probably be in the best interest for his NFL future, it's not going to happen.

I think the Iowa/Ohio State game is going to be epic. Both teams are returning a ton of good players and the game moves to Iowa City this year.

Your Hawkeyes almost beat Pryor without Stanzi that says alot. I disagree that he will be better next year. If they plan to run him more he's going to turn the ballover even more mark my words. Even worse then his accuracy is his presnce in the pocket. Tressell will prolly just run sane sp? and play good defense. Like the rest of the Big Ten.

Iowa has a pretty favorable schedule if they can make it happen. They have alot of their hard games at home like PSU, OSU, Wisconsin. But knowing Iowa they will probably go 11-1 and lose to Northwestern like they always do.

M'kay. I dislike both programs. Miami is more likely to lose later on, so it's better for ohio state to lose early.

I've never checked to see if you write Miami in lower case letters. Do you? OSU is not going to lose to Miami in the Shoe. They will win despite Tressel and his conservative offense. They have much more talent than Miami and once again, I'll be here to serve you your crow. Ohio St. does have some games where they could lose, but those will be to in conference opponents, not Miami.

Saine. It will be a defensive battle. Like it always seems to be. BTW, Iowa's freshman QB was damn good and his mother is hot.

How dare you discount the man, Ricky Stanzi. I predict he will throw 11 pick sixes next year, and some how in the 4th quarter complete every pass.

Todd Reesing had to do too much. Ku's defense was the real for there downfall.

Spoken by someone who didn't watch the games. Yes, the defense played like shit the last 2 years. But Reesing was a major contributor to some losses last year. It is tough for a team to overcome multiple turnovers in a game, especially ones on the road. That happened in a few games.

Don't get me wrong. I love what the midget did for KU football. He won a lot of games for them. But there was something obviously wrong with him last year. He should have been benched until he got his shit together. I don't care what a player has done. It would have been best for the team.

I totally agree. The combination of Reesings erratic play (drinking too much) and Mangina's insistence on playing Sharp over Opurum was the downfall of KU last year.

I had forgotten about the RB thing. Opurum was obviously a beast and should have gotten more PT. But I wonder if he was banged up late in the year.

In any case, I think we will see a lot more of him this season.

Ku only went one game in confrence where they didn't allow more then thirty points.

That's what happens when you're constantly turning the ball over. The D sucked, but Reesing did play a part in KU losing.
