    Kind of surprised about Arizona State and Kansas State. Don't think those will last.

    Oklahoma beat Alabama in its bowl game. I think it's fair to rank them in the Top 5 heading into this season. I don't think they'll be Top 4 when it's all said and done, though.

    I'm guessing it will be the champs from the SEC, Pac-12, ACC and B1G in the playoff.

    OU's schedule is favorable. Toughest road games are at WVA, TCU and Texas Tech. Home games against K State, Baylor and OSU with Texass at the Cotton Bowl. OCC is Tulsa on the road, Tennessee at home and La Tech at home.

    Tennessee as in the volunteers? Not that surprised that OU would schedule them, but very surprised that an SEC school would go on the road to play a serious football school.

    That's favorable based on the 2013 way of doing things. With a selection committee allegedly focusing so hard on a football RPI and the schedule played, that's a schedule that's tough to overcome. Unless OU is undefeated, a 2-loss SEC or Pac-12 team will jump them.

    Think four PAC-12 teams could push for a top 10 ranking by the end of the season.

    Oregon, Stanford, UCLA and USC are all easily among the Top 15 best. So if things break right I don't think it's a stretch at all.

    I'll go one better. Between them, the Pac-12 and SEC will be 8 out of the Top 10 and one of us is going to get jobbed because the selection committee won't want a Pac-12 vs SEC playoff.

    And I am not buying the Oklahoma hype. Knight is a one-hit wonder at the moment. Big 12 winner will finish closer to 10 than 5.

    Think ASU and Washington should be flipped as well. The conference is loaded this year.

    It's not a stretch to say that the 8th best QB in the Pac-12 this season would be no worse than the 3rd best in another conference.

    You might be right, but ASU isn't short on confidence. Graham was on Phoenix radio this morning talking about winning national championships. Lulz. ASU fans are in for a wake up call when they finish third in the division and get thrashed by USC and UCLA.

    While four teams might be among the best den in the country is be curious to see how the polling could logistically turn out that way

    OU has Texas at a neutral site, and K State, Baylor, and OSU at home. Non-con is no ball buster with Tennessee at home. They will be favored in every game.

    I'm surprised by Washington. Until he proves something, I will lump Petersen with all the other ex-BSU coaches who can't coach at this level. He may surprise, but I'll wait and see.

    I'm also not sure about Oregon; everybody has them as their fave but they have a way of choking and not getting past the bruiser schools (like Stanford, Auburn etc).
