    If you are implying A&M you’re dead wrong and you of all people should know that.

    Nobody came closer to beating Clemson this year (only lost by 2 points and there was a blown call at the end of the game that cost us the win).

    Syracuse probably was our biggest obstacle this year. Couple that with two of their three losses coming from playoff teams and playing in the toughest division in football; it's clear they deserve to be in ahead of A&M.

    We are taking the underdog approach this year. Take them by surprise so to speak.

    OSU loses their 3 starting OL, 2 WR, their QB and TE, as well as their coach and entire defensive coaching staff, and are not sure if Fields will be playing this year or not. Buuuuuut we are pretty sure they are the 4th best team in the country.

    I'm not saying OSU won't be the 4th best team in the country, but if you think you know that, with any certainty today, you are wrong. Which is fine, go ahead and guess for fun, but don't use those guesses as the basis for anything. These preseason polls need to go away. Give me a Week 5 or 6 poll.

    Either that, or allow for much more movement in the polls. If you have this top 10, and Clemson and UGA look so-so week 1, drop those fuckers down to #15 and #16. if Texas wins 85-0, move them to #1. If Clemson bounces back and looks great in week 2, jump them back up to #5 or something. Using a fucking preseason poll as the basis for every poll after that, as if it holds some sort of weight, is absurd.

    For the first 2/3 of my life the obvious answer would be Texas A&M and Clemson.

    Syracuse had the advantage of Clemson being without their two quarterbacks that start of the season including Trevor Lawrence. Texas A&M on the other hand had to face both.

    Coaching involves leading/teaching players in practice, scrimmage or game.

    He has done none of that with his current squad.

    He is NOT an active coach.

    Okay then Meyer is still the active coach for OSU.

    So either way there’s four.

    How would you define modern era? Looking at the top 10 and there are a few teams I can think of that might qualify for that distinction here in 2019.

    If you’re saying a coach can’t be active until they are coaching practices and scrimmages then the opposite is true as well. A coach remains the coach until a new coach starts coaching practices or scrimmages. You can’t have it both ways.

    Probably 1980 onwards.

    You can argue that the early 90s.

    I’m just making shit up at this point, cause I had to get a jab in on ATM who hadn’t been relevant, well ever.
