    Makes a little sense to me. Although if Florida wins the national championship this year, how could he rank them first next year in the preseason ballot after losing the entire defense plus Tebow?

    More interesting is the point about the purpose of the preseason poll. The AP doesn't give any guidelines specific to the preseason...should there be?

    Is it to rank the teams how you think they should be ranked after the first week of play?


    Rank the teams based on how you think they will finish the season?


    Go with what Van Brimmer did (and the current AP guidelines say) -- Rank them without any preseason speculation?
