    4. WASHINGTON

    Steele: "Two years ago, I had Washington as my No. 1 surprise team and they got to the Playoff despite not being in the preseason Top 10. I did not have the Huskies in the Playoff last year, but that have the talent and only face my No. 58-rated schedule. I expect a much bigger year from QB Jake Browning and Washington has my No. 7 RB, No. 13 OL, No. 11 DL, No. 11 LB and No. 2 DB units. They have some land mines as they open with Auburn in Atlanta then travel to Utah and Oregon, but this team is capable of winning all 12. I have Washington as the No. 8 offense and No. 5 defense in the country."

    247Sports take: Huskies tailback Myles Gaskin isn't getting enough love this preseason. With three consecutive 1,300-yard plus seasons on the ground, this kid should be a Heisman frontrunner with the talent returning around him. Several of Washington's starting seniors have Playoff experience (2016) and are looking to get back.

    BC @ #23 is interesting. I know it is Phil Steele, but there isn't anything about BC that says they'll be anything more than a 7-6/8-5 type of team.

    I don't get it either. Where the hell did the BC love come from? Do they have a bunch of MFer transfers that have been waiting in the wings? WTH?

    Also don't understand the TCU love. They lost a lot from a team that couldn't handle OU either time.

    I'm sorry,
    But this kind of shit is just to cover your ass when you're wrong.

    It's lazy journalism.

    Texas above Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State is atrocious.

    My gut tells me somehow by the end of the year if Alabama doesn’t win the title Steele’s preseason top 25 will somehow magically change and his prediction will be “correct” because he watched the selection show and predicted after watching who would be in the playoffs.

    2015: 9-4 (8-0)
    2014: 7-6 (5-3)

    It’s too high. Probably should slot it back 6 or 7.

    You and that Michigan St. fan have to be two of the worst smack talkers on this board. Pump up your team for fvks sake. Find a poster on here who's team is ranked lower than yours and start giving him some shit.

    ESPN will make sure of that towards the end of the season even if Boise is undefeated.

    Just trying to be real. We should be good, but the overrated QB and lack of proven, quality WRs will likely prevent us from being great.

    This is college football .. the entire ranking system is built on speculation. The offseason is the best time to talk shit imo seeing how your team is undefeated.

    SEC teams are more than halfway to bowl eligibility before the season starts what with all the FCS teams they schedule.
