How is Miss State rated at 34? No way Iowa, Houston, and VA Tech are better. Missouri has one of top qb's in the country and they didn't even make the list? Of course, 3 of the final top ten teams last year weren't on Steele's list either. I thought he knew something about college football.

I'm not the kind of delusional MSU fan who thinks we should be ranked top 15-20 after finishing 7-6 with a little flash at the end last season, but if a 4-8 Florida team is #24, then I think we should be at least a little higher.

List is shite. I have never liked Phil Steele.

Wisconsin, with all that talent not returning, over LSU? TCU even in the top 20?

I'd put Clemson higher than both. Stout defense, senior QB that has completed 70% of his passes for over 600 yards with 8 TDs and 1 int over the past 2 years.
