Way too early to complain, but I'd move Bama back to 6th or 7th and all the ones ahead of them up 1 spot.

Bama welcomes a lot back, but c'mon, losing a QB like McCarron, will hurt more than help, even with Mr. Kiffen coming in as the O-Coordinator.
A Playoff will not be any more fair than the BCS.
No matter what happens, Favre > Rodgers.
St. Louis Cardinals = Class of MLB.
Carlos Gomez is the new Nyjer Morgan.....

Bama will be determined to bounce back from what they deem a bad year(2 losses) Sabin will have them back on top.

Did not expect that for Wisconsin. A team that sputtered late in the season and loses 25 seniors got that much love? I'll take it.
You are not smarter than your favorite team's upper management, so stop trying to be.

I think it has a lot to do with the recruits GA is bringing in. I believe we have one of the strongest freshmen classes coming in this year ever. I don't know that for sure though. But we do seem to still have a strong team. Hopefully Houston or even Gillens can come in and pose a strong threat to Stave for the QB spot next year.

Strong compared to WI or the rest of the nation? I don't think anyone doing a top 25 list is giving a team credit for recruiting above their own standard while still falling largely below the top national teams.

Harbaugh will have Urban Meyer retired from OSU by 2020.

It's a nice class, especially for Wisconsin, but only a fraction of that class is going to see meaningful snaps next season. The general formula for these lists at this point in the year seems to be how well a team did last season + how much/little they lose. Based on that I'd expect Wisconsin to be a fringe Top 25 team, and I'd be more inclined to agree with that.

Strong compared to what we've had before. I believe were ranked like 31st on recruiting class according to ESPN the last I checked. They still need to start landing some upper tier recruits to do any better than that I think. But Wisconsin does have a track record of bringing in lower tier players or even walk-ons and turning them into playmakers. GA is starting to bring in more speed though it sounded like which will only help. And I think that's why you might see some more playing time out of the younger class because they are guys he is bringing in.

I do like Wisconsin's recruiting class, but a high class ranking partly was due to a high number of scholarships available/filled.
