I thought you guys might get a kick out of Andrea Adelson’s ESPN.com post about the coaches poll top 25, or at least this excerpt:
Overrated: Florida, Texas, Virginia Tech. We listed reasons for the over-ranking of Florida and Texas. Now to the Hokies, who are at No. 6. It seems expectations are too high for the Hokies every season. Yes, they return a very talented RB duo and Tyrod Taylor at QB, but the defense only returns four starters and the schedule is brutal. This seems a bit high for a team that has averaged three losses over the past six seasons.
Overrated, Part II: Penn St. at No. 14 and LSU at No. 16. Penn St. lost lots of defense and has uncertainty at QB; LSU has a great defense, but everybody is waiting on Jordan Jefferson to step up. This was also a team picked to finish fourth in the SEC West in the preseason media poll.
Notice a name missing there? You would think a school which she ranked #64 on her own preseason list would be a no-brainer overrated at the coaches’ #21.
Maybe she’s really impressed with the news that came out of the first four days of fall camp.
