Way too early preseason Top 25

With the college football season officially at a close, we can start dreaming and begin to look ahead to late August’s preseason Top 25.

Considering Alabama was crowned the national champion less than three hours ago, it may be a little early to predict which teams will be worthy of a top-25 ranking.

But then again, speculation is what keeps us football fans alive during the offseason. So with that said, here is my way-too-early preseason Top 25.

And yes, it is subject to change, especially with many names yet to declare for the 2013 NFL Draft.

1 Alabama Crimson Tide 13-1*
2 Oregon Ducks 12-1
3 Texas A&M Aggies 11-2

It keeps people talking about college football. But I'm sick of them.

Pre-season ranking are so worthless and ridiculous. The first rankings should happen after the fourth game. End the madness and abolish pre-season rankings! Who's with me?
