Athlon 2013 Top 25
 
A Very Early College Football Top 25 for 2013 | AthlonSports.com

I think they are over emphasizing our defensive losses. Manti is a huge loss, the kind of loss that can't be replaced. KLM is tough, but we are pretty deep a long the line. We should miss too much there. I think Nix will stay. Bennet Jackson going to the NFL? What? This is the first I am hearing this

I think it's pretty accurate. After years of not being ranked, I'm not complaining about being in the top 10. I think Nix and Bennett will stay. I liked the article because of the " 30 Best College Football Cheerleaders" Link on the side of the page!

I find it laughable that tOSU is at no.2. They lose nearly as much defensively as ND, and have less proven depth to replace it with. In terms of star power, their front 7 could be better. But depth, and overall production of defense? ND by a mile.

Also, they were fortunate to play a weak-*** schedule this season. Their best OOC game was Cal.

Athlon's only excuse for ranking us behind 7 other teams is that Z. Martin, Nix and Jackson "could leave early for the NFL". Most people who follow the program know all three are likely to stay.

"Accurate" isn't the word I'd use to describe this.

But...but they have Braxton Miller!!

I Respect that kids talent, i'd just like to see him versus a respected defense.... and no the 2012 PSU Nittany Lions don't count!

Texas aTm will fail next year. That is all.

Oh well, I love being the underdog. Preseason rankings mean absolutely nothing. How'd USC's preseason #1 work out for them?
