We’re #1

My alma mater, the University of Oklahoma, is rated #1 in all four of the major preseason polls for NCAA football.  I’m realizing that I’d better brag now, before the games actually start, since, if history is a guide, the Sooners’ pre-eminence is likely to fade once they actually start to play some games.  Still, I am proud.   The four polls also agree in ranking Alabama #2.  After that, opinions differ.

Check out the polls:  2011 NCAA College Football Polls and Rankings for Week 1 – ESPN.  Where do you think the prognosticators get it right and where do they get it wrong?  And before the games actually begin is the right time for predictions:  Who do you think will end the season as th #1 team?

    Don’t blame us that your sport priorities are so messed up ;). I would love to see Texas A&M end at #1, but I think more likely it will be Alabama or LSU, Oregon will be hurt because they are in the PAC12. OU will end top 5 with one loss, I think this may be the year we finally beat you in Norman.

    Anytime the prognosticators put Big 10 or Big 12 teams near the top, they err. And anytime they don’t put SEC teams at the top, they err also.

    BOOMER!!! Stop by Trinity if you ever find yourself in Norman! I read Spirituality of the Cross and made it to your bio in the back and said aloud, “Whoa he went to OU?!”
