    I'm comfortable we can be in the mix on the field with this list from 13 on down to 25. But, I'm not sure we are ready for all the teams 1-12 ? Cool, we are #24!!

    At this point top 25 is amazing in my opinion! I would also think that there isn't much difference between 17 at least and 25 as to the recruits.

    Might be they've beaten 5 top 25 teams (3-1 vs. top 6 teams) in the past two years and have a lot of talent coming back. And a coach who can, you know. coach.

    If we want to fix what happened, you need to fire Coyle and Kaler as well.

    There are other systems - Nebraska was in the top ten in one, Gophers in the forties. They have two tough games just before us next fall - both at home: Ohio State, followed by Northwestern.

    They were 4-8 each of the past two seasons. A better question is "Where's Northwestern?"

    It's amazing to me that so many people seem to expect Ohio State to smoothly maintain their status after losing Urban Meyer.

    Yes, the roster is still overflowing with talent. But Meyer was one of a handful of truly elite, Hall of Fame level coaches in the country. If I recall correctly, transitions at the top haven't always gone smoothly for the Buckeyes.

    Another team that caught my eye on this list: is Michigan really the 7th best team in the nation? If so, we have hope.

    When I look at these rankings and compare the current state of the Gopher football program, I think we're quite competitive once you get past, say, #5 Oklahoma. I'm speaking of the Gopher team I watched soundly beat Purdue, Wisconsin and Georgia Tech.

    I'm excited for next season.

    I don't think anyone is shaking things up at tOSU and we've seen plenty of coach's walk into a situation and even win a natty's with a previous coach's players.... and then demonstrate they have no chance of doing so otherwise.

    Yeah, I think Tim Brewster could walk in there out of the parking lot the day of the first game next year and win 10 games at OSU. Seriously. I think a rando picked off this board would win at least 7-8 as the head coach at Ohio State next year. Minimum. The assistants are still mostly in place.

    It happens in other sports too. I once heard of a coach that stepped into a women's basketball program and went on a magical ride to the final four, only to have mass player defections and nose-diving ticket sales just a few years later.

    That's what I thought too. Texas and LSU way too high.
