Mark Schlabach of ESPN released his 'Post-Spring Way-Too-Early Top 25' Poll on Monday and has LSU ranked at No. 13. Here is what he had to say:

13. LSU Tigers
If the Tigers are going to maintain pace with SEC West rivals Alabama and Auburn, their defense might have to carry the load early in the season. LSU coach Les Miles hasn't named quarterback Zach Mettenberger's replacement, as sophomore Anthony Jennings struggled during the spring game after a disappointing performance in a 21-14 win over Iowa in the Outback Bowl. Jennings, a sophomore from Marietta, Ga., had two interceptions returned for touchdowns in LSU's spring game. He is being pushed by freshman Brandon Harris of Bossier City, La., who graduated from high school early and enrolled at LSU in January. Making matters worse for whoever starts at quarterback, the Tigers lost top receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. to the NFL draft. The good news: Miles and his staff have stockpiled tailbacks, including incoming freshman Leonard Fournette, the No. 1 recruit in the country according to ESPN RecruitingNation.
Here are his complete rankings:

1. Florida State Seminoles
2. Alabama Crimson Tide
3. Oklahoma Sooners
4. Auburn Tigers
5. Oregon Ducks
6. Michigan State Spartans
7. Ohio State Buckeyes
8. Georgia Bulldogs
9. Baylor Bears
10. South Carolina Gamecocks
11. Stanford Cardinal
12. UCLA Bruins
13. LSU Tigers
14. Texas A&M Aggies
15. Wisconsin Badgers
16. North Carolina Tar Heels
17. Notre Dame Fighting Irish
18. Iowa Hawkeyes
19. Florida Gators
20. USC Trojans
21. Texas Tech Red Raiders
22. Clemson Tigers
23. Kansas State Wildcats
24. Nebraska Cornhuskers
25. Michigan Wolverines

Georgia....really? You'd think that the college football pundits would learn their lesson after UGA continues to underachieve year after year.
