Analyst Names 5 'Most Overrated' College Football Teams In 2022

This Monday morning, the official 2022 preseason coaches' poll released. Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia, Clemson and Notre Dame round out the top five.
After that it gets a bit dicey. Texas A&M is No. 7, although the Aggies are really an unknown entering the 2022 season.
Per college sports editor Erick White, Texas A&M is one of the five "most overrated" teams in college football in 2022.
The Aggies are joined by USC, Texas, Cincinnati and Pitt.

Miami at 17 is the overrated one to me. I know they finished the season strong with TVD but it feels like we’ve done this song and dance the last 5 years

I mean any team with a huge question mark at QB is potentially overrated.

You just don’t know what you are going to have until you see the finished product on the field which is why they shouldn’t have rankings until after week 1.

Agreed. The only saving grace is they play in that weak conference.

This is true, but there's some context there too at least in A&M's case. We do know whoever comes out of there will be better than Calzada.

"Every time Lucy pulls the football away from Charlie Brown, there is always the glimmer of hope that one day he will kick the ball. Such is the case with predictions for the Aggies," said White, via USA Today. "This is still a program – despite all its fanfare - that has only twice finished with fewer than four losses this century and has only been ranked at the end of six seasons during the same span. Optimism that “this” is the year A&M breaks through and contends for the SEC title is built on some fantastic recruiting classes that Jimbo Fisher put together. However, it’s play on the field that matters and until expectations meet reality there are going to be doubters. The biggest question mark is at quarterback where only LSU transfer Max Johnson has significant experience. There’s talent on the line of scrimmage, but it is young and how the grind of the SEC impacts those groups is unknown. The Aggies will be good. But being top-10 good seems a stretch given their difficult schedule and still green group of talented underclassmen."

So put us at #15, who gives a frick. With an unknown starting QB at this point, it may be a fair statement.

Let's see how the season plays out. Much rather be out of the limelight and just playing football. Another building year for the Ags and most anyone that follows our program closely knows this. We are close, just not there quite yet.

Having said that, we should finish this season in the top 10 but not seeing a CFP spot this year.

A&M is only relevant because they make so much noise.

Probably wouldn't discount USC or Pitt, easier conferences leaving 9 wins a possibility.

Honestly Texass should be on the list written with a fat black sharpie. Year after year one of those 5 spots are taken by them.

I’m just saying….

Not good company to be in unfortunately. As noted USC and Utjr over in Austin seem to make the overrated list every year.

I agree with it though, with our unknown situation at QB, rebuilding some parts of the offense like WR, we shouldn’t be top 10. Should be in the 15-25 range IMO. No issue starting there and if you win all your games, you’ll still easily be top 4 and headed to the playoff at the end of the season.

This is most Aggies’ attitude almost to a T: temper expectations then lean into hype.

“we’re close” (even though none of us know what close even looks like) “but not this year… well, hell, we’ll finish in the top 10!”

Fair assessment, but in the modern NCAA, is there really a clear picture of anything below number 4 or 5?

I actually think USC will finish top 10. Not hard to improve over a 4-8 record from last year. Have to consider they bring in a Heisman candidate for QB, one of the top returning WRs in the country, a few other transfer including the RB from Oregon while playing in a conference that is not great at defense. Looking at their schedule they should be undefeated going into game 7 at Utah and after that finish with ND. Oregon is not on their schedule.

Cincy and Pitt are getting love for how they finished last year but Cincy does have an easy schedule outside of their opener to Arkansas. Pitt lost to much on offense to repeat last year.

Texas who knows but I would say OU should be there for being over rated before Texas. Way to many questions going into the season for OU with a new HC that loves defense without the roster to support it.

a&m 7 or 20 does not make a difference as those spots probably right now are about the same. The difference for the aggies is the schedule. They have the hardest schedule of all teams mentioned to prove themselves. If all 5 played the schedule the aggies have they would finish the highest.

That's fine I guess but it's always a weak argument when your main point about how a team is going to do this year is more about what they did 10-20 years ago and not the current state of the program.
