Post-National Signing Day preseason Top 25

With National Signing Day all said and done, there’s some “dead time” between now and college football spring practice.

This gives me the perfect opportunity to release another way-too-early preseason Top 25.

Now that we know which players are departing for the 2013 NFL Draft – along with where every high-profile recruit has landed – the rankings that were released right after the BCS National Championship game can be toyed with a bit.

That said, here’s an updated version of the preseason Top 25 for this upcoming fall.

Ranking Prev. Ranking Team 2012 record
1 1 Alabama Crimson Tide 13-1 (7-1 SEC)
2 3 Texas A&M Aggies 11-2 (6-2 SEC)
3 5 Ohio State Buckeyes 12-0 (8-0 Big Ten)
4 4 Stanford Cardinal 12-2 (8-1 Pac-12)
5 7 Georgia Bulldogs 12-2 (7-1 SEC)
6 8 LSU Tigers 10-3 (6-2 SEC)
7 2 Oregon Ducks 12-1 (8-1 Pac-12)
8 6 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 12-1
9 9 Louisville Cardinals 11-2 (5-2 Big East)
10 12 Florida Gators 11-2 (7-1 SEC)
11 11 South Carolina Gamecocks 11-2 (6-2 SEC)
12 13 Clemson Tigers 11-2 (7-1 ACC)

I agree completely with your top 10. The biggest game of the year will unfortunately be in week 2 in college station, when Bama goes into Texas A&M looking for revenge. You know Saban is already focused on how to stop Johnny Football.
