Preseason Rankings

College Football Live placed the Irish at #24 in their preseason poll. Arguably, Athlon's last year preseason ranking of #6 could have had some more merit if it was not for the unpredictable turnovers. Granted, ESPN may not sit well with many but #24 from the start? Thoughts?

I am confident that our line play will be fantastic, but it is hard to rank us much higher to begin with when QB is a question and CB is unproven.

I actually think 24 is generous. This team has so much potential but with the quarterback situation the way it is it's difficult to argue that ND is one of the best 25 teams in college football. I think there should be some kind of unwritten rule that says you shouldn't be ranked in the top 25 if you have a QB competition extending into fall practices.*

*Unless you're an SEC team

In my opinion, if there are two positions on a football team you don't want to have be inexperienced, it is the quarterback and the cornerbacks.

Ranked at 24 is fine. The OL/RB/DL/LB units are excellent, but the others need to prove themselves.

How many 8 win teams are in the top 25...?

Isn't that kinda the concensus water mark around here; 8 wins (+/-1).

I like this team...lines are looking good. RBs are looking good. TE is looking good. But we have question marks at WR, DB...aaaaand QB. What I expect is more flashes of brilliance followed by many moments of ...WTF was THAT?

I figured the 2012 gang at 8 wins after the FSU debacle...after the recruiting fun...transfers...and after the spring game...still like 8 wins.

Who were the other teams around ND? I don't have a problem with 24. I agree with everyone else though that with CB & QB such a problem, who knows.
