Commenting on a pre-season ballot is futile. But question: is USC eligible for votes and/or a request for explanation on their absense. They seem at least fringe worthy in my mind.
How is Oregon's QB this year? Auburn seems high. I know they're supposed to be a bit better this year, but are we gambling on Malzahn finally hitting it big? Is Mallett not enough to get Arkansas on the list?
I'm also bullish on Clemson since Parker turned down playing in the MLB. But like all pre-season Clemson hope, it will also crash and burn by week 7.
