Athlon 2013 Top 25

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!

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

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.

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!

If Michigan swapped schedules with them, I assure you Michigan would have done similar. Pretty hard to bag on a team who wound up playing the two teams that are playing for the MNC. Michigan's combined opponent's record this year is 96-63. That is the best COR ever in program history. 5 teams with 10+ wins.
If Al Borges didn't decide to eat his playbook at halftime, Michigan may have won The Game. They held that all mighty prolific meyer offense to two touchdowns, on the road. They also kept miller in check.
I think Michigan beats them at home next year.
Louisville being in the top-15 is a freaking joke. They're going to get beaten like a 1950s housewife in the Sugar Bowl.
