A reader passed this LSU site on to us that lists the rankings from various preseason polls in a handy graph form. As you can see, Clemson averages 9.5, with rankings as high as #6 (one AP voter who writes for the San Jose Mercury News), and as low as #20 by a January College Football News poll that was written when it looked as if James Davis was gone. Georgia is pretty solid at number 1, and that's hard to argue against. Southern Pigskin lists West Virginia as their preseason #1, and I fail to understand how you rank a team with a new staff top-to-bottom as the best team in the country. Feel free to give your take in the comments.
