Pre season polls are kind of like socialism in my mind; they may seem good in theory, but in reality they suck. I have always thought that a team should be ranked the same in the pre season as they were at the end of the previous season.
I know-I know; teams lose players, coaches, and what not, but why is it fair for one team to surpass another team in rankings without any games being won or loss? Maybe some of you can convince me otherwise. In my mind I have always likened it to heavy weight boxing champions. If you want to be the champ, you gotta be the champ! Kudos to the coaches for keeping Bama at the top. And hey, at least the Dawgs cracked the poll!
