I personally think it's a little low, especially when you consider that he has ND at #21. Notable:
Pointing downward are the fact thatthey benefitted from 3 net close wins, were +7 in TO's, hadbeneficial off (12.2) and def (18.5) ypp's and my Stock MarketIndicator (pg 27) has them -5.0. This is an improved tm thatprobably won't match LY's 11 win total with gms away fromhome vs Alabama, ND, Neb and Ohio St but unlike LY, theycould find themselves in the B10 Title game
Not much here that everyone doesn't already know, and he mostly just regurgitates game stats and results from 2011. As with any pre-season ranking, take this with a massive grain of salt and always remember that he predicted this for us last season.
