With another year of spring football in the books—outside of New Mexico State, which will officially drop the curtain on May 4—college football will hit pause until teams begin reporting to fall camp. I'm sorry, New Mexico State, but the show must go on.
To celebrate this intermission, we’ve created the "Post-Spring Football Top 25." SPOILER ALERT: New Mexico State did not make the cut.
Using our February Spring Football Top 25 as a baseline, we’ve taken into account spring observations, injuries, roster shuffles and other happenings over the past few months. For the most part, the moves aren’t dramatic, although there were a handful of noteworthy shifts and new additions.
With teams locked in place until recruits arrive on campus in the fall, there likely won’t be much movement until then.
Please note: If your team is in the news between now and conference media days, this is not typically a good thing. Although quiet is boring, it also means the offseason is progressing as planned. Injuries, arrests and other offseason attrition can begin to take its toll, and silence indicates the plan is moving forward at the intended pace.
Anything more and the results may vary.
As for the results of the latest top 25—and I’m certain we will all agree on each and every team and ranking—here it is. If your team is not included, it’s likely due to a personal vendetta.
Just thought I’d get that out of the way right now.
