College Football's 5 Most Overrated Preseason Teams, 2008-2012
Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE
Notre Dame and Florida State met in the 2011 Champs Sports Bowl. Will they both be on this list as well?

The Associated Press released their annual preseason college football poll today, exactly 14 days prior to the first Saturday in college football. I have met very few people (outside of fans of teams ranked in the Top Five) who really enjoy college football preseason rankings. They use words like "useless," "inaccurate," and best of all, "overrated."

The last word on the list is really what chafes most people. Sure, you have your Ohio State fans who will gripe about where Michigan lands no matter the circumstances, and LSU and Alabama fans will always say their team is better. What I'm talking about are the teams people just look at and say, "Really? Again?"

These are, in my opinion, the top five most overrated preseason teams from 2008 until now.

All polls via Associated Press and obtained at collegepollarchive.com.
