College Football 2006 Preseason Rankings (May 26)
These are my rankings as an avid college football fan who spends way too much on a monthly basis to keep up with recruiting, practices, team progression and the game and sport of football in general. My rankings last year ended up being much closer than those of the big boys. I rank teams based on coaching, incoming talent, remaining talent, last years accomplishments and experience in key positions. According to my formula, the 2006 NCAA college football season will turn out something like the following.

Explanations to follow soon for why each football team received its ranking.

1. Ohio State

2. West Virginia

3. LSU

4. Southern California

5. Auburn

6. Texas

7. Notre Dame

8. Michigan

9. Florida

As many know, I go many different directions and I enjoy it. Sometimes it's politics, other times, relationships. Today it's college football. I have compiled a preseason ranking of Division 1 College Football. Please understand that it's just for fun. I don't take myself that seriously. Though I think this is as accurate of a list as you'll find right now (May 12, 2004).
