Well they are here: The infamous "Dog Days of Summer," where the days are long and the college football news days are even longer. So to make the days go by faster, writers create many preseason top 25 polls. Whether it is an ESPN writer or just some fan from B/R, these thing always cause controversy. But hey, if it gives us something to talk about in the world of college football, I say write it.
Last season was full of craziness and controversy, but not the kind that the 2007 season brought: I mean the kind that put many schools in hot water. The two main schools in the heat were Auburn, who won the national title, and Ohio State, who is in a whole mess of trouble.
The 2011 season brings some big questions: How will Ohio State fare without Jim Tressel and Terrelle Pryor?,What about Auburn without Cam Newton and Nick Fairley? Are the Sooners and Irish overrated again? There are many more.
While never 100 percent right, the preseason polls do give insight into how the college season might shake out.
