The USA Today Coaches' Poll was released on Thursday, which means that after months of searching for an excuse—any excuse—to talk about college football, there's finally a legitimate reason to do so. 

But come early September, it will be totally irrelevant.

Arkansas was ranked No. 10 in last year's preseason poll, but was wiped off the grid completely after losing to Louisiana-Monroe in Week 2. Michigan, meanwhile, began the year No. 8 but fell to No. 19 after being mutilated by Alabama.

There might be an Arkansas-sized upset looming among this year's Week 1 schedule, but predicting a shocker of that magnitude is difficult; part of its beauty is its ability to come out of left field.

Some games, however, are guaranteed to shakeup the polls.
