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?
