Crimson Tide Favored to Repeat
In a preseason composite poll from Phil Steele, Athlon’s, Sporting News, and Lindy’s…Alabama is the No. 1 team in the nation.
The Crimson Tide received three first-place votes and 98 of a possible 100 points according to the poll. Oklahoma garnered the other first-place votes.
Ohio State, who didn’t receive a first place vote, was the No. 2 team selected behind Alabama in three of the four publications listed. The Buckeyes earned a total of 95 points which placed them directly behind the defending champions.
Alabama will certainly be regarded as the No. 1 team in the country in every credible poll to begin the 2010 campaign.
From a fan prospective rankings are fun to discuss, but as the old expression goes, “just win baby…the rest will take care of itself."
