Yep, the "over-rateds" start as high as #2. Some of these team perennially get ranked solely on their brand and never amount to much. Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Ohio State...these teams have been at or near the top for a while, but USC, PSU, Oklahoma...I'm not buying it. As someone else said, at least Notre Dame isn't in their usual position, being ranked clearly because their name and nothing else.

Laughable, that's a who's who list. 25% of those teams won't finish in the top 25

One SEC team in the top 13 seems about right.

The other UT won't finish ranked, either.
