Exotic_Adagio708

Not an English major, but I think comprehensive means 25 so seems accurate.


zachpledger

Comprehensive - from the Old English "Quanpi Sentsive" - Originally from the Latin "Quarta Centum", meaning "quarter of a hundred," or "25."


stuckeezy

This is actually some extremely convincing sounding bullshit

Comprehensive list of football teams, except for the ones it doesn’t include

Penn State has been in every list of football teams ever. ^(\*except for the ones it hasn't been in.)

Syracuse fans avert your eyes


Large_Ad1385

I do eat the entire orange. The peel is actually incredibly good for you, they’re rich in fiber, vitamins, and polyphenols. Can’t same the same for the sticker


Captain_-H

I’m pretty sure the FDA mandates that the sticker and adhesive be non toxic. So I think it’s like play-dough: you really shouldn’t eat that…but I guess you could


ohverychill

[I eat stickers all the time, dude](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbwmOtJFJF0)


Apep86

Can’t say I’ve ever eaten the skin except pieces in like Orange Chicken, or if a recipe calls for orange zest. What’s the best way to prepare the skin? Or do you just eat it raw?


Large_Ad1385

Candied orange peels are my favorite, a lot of recipes online for it, just takes some time. I mostly just slice oranges up and eat the peels along with the orange simultaneously. The sweetness of the orange itself and the bitterness of the peel balance out very well


citronauts

I might try this


RamenRavisher

They hype us up every fuckin year so that when we inevitably don’t meet their wildly unrealistic expectations, they can hop on live TV and go “HAHA LOOKS LIKE MIAMI ISNT BACK AFTER ALL WHAT A DUMPSTER FIRE” when they were the only ones pushing that narrative in the first place.


Some_Estimate_4464

I’m a Miami fan and alum and I’ll be hella surprised if Miami finishes top 15, let alone top 5. But I guess that’s why they play the games.

I did this in 2017 to celebrate our Orange Bowl win over Miami in Miami. Word of advice: pick a small orange.


cheerl231

I came into this thread ready to complain about shit rankings. I am happy that my expectations were met. Miami at 4??? Are you high Brett?


HurricanesnHendrick

Apparently Brett is also signed to a LifeWallet NIL deal with that ranking..


cityofklompton

Dude's as plugged into college football as anyone, but clearly he should probably stick to finding the scoops instead of evaluating teams. Verrrrry interesting T25.

He’s high alright. High on Miami!

halvor13

He seems to have forgotten Michigan State exists also. Can’t blame him. We probably haven’t posted a picture of Mel Tucker on Instagram in an hour or two.


meyer_33_09

Well how the hell is he supposed to know that Tuck’s comin’ then?


cherrygoats

That might mean we’ve posted two pictures of him on Twitter


anthonyterms

No, he’s just hyping them up so when they falter, he can tear them down.


intothefryingpan

I’m not saying it’s right but - Reasons Miami is at 4: 1. Likely 1st round draft pick at QB. 2. One of the best coaching staffs in the country. Including offensive coordinator Josh Gattis (top assistant last year). Charlie Strong is our freaking LB coach. 3. Much much improved D and O lines including multiple likely 1st rounders. 4. One of the best if not the best safety rooms in the country. 5. Multiple top talent, instant impact transfers at major positions of need.


GP_ADD

And most important of all- play in a semi down ACC where Clemson no longer looks immortal, did not draw NC St or ND as one of their 4-5 Acc games. Idk if his criteria of where they should be ranked is based on where they could end up at the end of the season based on talent vs schedule or if he actually thinks they are top 4. Because if it’s the former- overall they are very talented, players and coaches, and have a very favorable schedule win two potential huge winnable games in Texas A&M and Clemson with a potential third big win against who I’d assume would be Clemson or NC State in the ACC championship game. Definitely a top 15 team with huge potential and favorable schedule, I could see it happening.


KommanderKeen-a42

lol and ND at 18? I get not top 5 (I think ND is between 8-12), but 18?!? WTF haha


ClaudeLemieux

I'd say his logic must be the brand new coaching staff...but Miami also has a new staff...


newrimmmer93

I think the difference is that Cristobal has 11 years of HC experience and Freeman has 0 (outside of Fiesta Bowl last year).


noffinater

It’s a silly ruse. A conforming Top 25 ranking is boring and generic. Nobody would even notice. A controversial Top 25 creates clicks, shares, mentions, traffic. He doesn’t care if it’s all people telling him how stupid or how great his rankings are, as long as they are engaging with it. Trending is trending.

FloridaGatorMan

soonernado

Yeah, it would be fine if this mechanism was limited to sports…it’s not.


jdj7w9

AP rankings are meaningless now because of this fact. We no longer value accurate rankings. The way consumers give value is through clicks and engagement and now that controversy generates more clicks than accurate and factual reporting the AP has no reason to produce accurate and factual rankings.


SpeedLegend

He’s got Miami high, Nebraska high. All that’s missing is Texas

madgunner122

We all know why Nebraska is on the list… clicks and views.


Oprah-Is-My-Dad

It's an annual tradition at this point. At least one writer has to have the hot take of putting Nebraska in the top 25


madgunner122

They will be right one time, right? Right?!?


Scratchbuttdontsniff

the year is 2033 Brett McMurphy looks like the prophet as Nebraska his #23 Pre-Season ranking wins the BIGPAC West with an 8-6 conference record.... narrowly defeating last place Colorado on a newly implemented 4 point play from the 35 yard line. Husker WR Randolph Davidson catches a fluttering pass from his twin brother Reese to secure the famous victory and send the Huskers to the BIGPACNDACC Championship in Toronto.


Steel1000

You left our our new QB, Martinez Martinez


pessimism_yay

I can see Nebraska winning 9 games this year. Maybe even 10? I don't think it's crazy. It's not last season anymore.


ATXBeermaker

I'm confused. Where is Texas? Are they ranked above the rankings themselves?


zachpledger

Texas is ~~back~~ FRONT!


2CHINZZZ

We are moving to the NFL


Bren12310

KlingoftheCastle

He ran out of teams he can remember


Steel1000

This is the answer…as fuq it whose left? Ooo sweet corn, yummy. Yea Huskers at 25. Time for lunch!


JonSnowDontKn0w

These rankings are hot garba... *sees Oklahoma State above OU* yeah it's not that bad


RoboticBirdLaw

A lot of this is trash, but essentially ranking OSU, OU, and Baylor at the same place is spot on.


[deleted]

MIAMI at 4?!


babyunvamp

>25. Nebraska lmfao


ryseing

> NC State > RAT POISON


ThisGuy100000

The crazy thing is that these rankings aren’t too crazy except for the ridiculously absurd decision to put a Miami at 4. The top 10 is very reasonable (aside from Miami), and the rest is fine other than leaving MSU out and putting Nebraska at 25


Flioxan

ND at 18 is nutty also


cammywammy123

I'm cool with ND and OU being in the 13-18 range, I feel like we have a bit to prove on the field and with our brands it isn't actually difficult to move up the ratings if we deserve it. Pre-season polls are just rage bait to get more clicks like 90% of the time so they don't really matter anyway


kywiking

I’m sorry but you can’t convince me half the SEC wouldn’t rip apart Nebraska or Air Force… weird list.


Skyagunsta21

I mean there's 5 SEC teams ahead of them so pretty close to half. Regardless, I'm pretty sure this is just a random list of 25 teams


Wont_reply69

Sure but that’s not how we’ve generally ever done AP rankings and Air Force is probably going to win a bunch of games. No comment on Nebraska.


kywiking

I guess that’s what I dont understand is this just post season potential? Win potential? I guess I always just figured this was a list of who we think are the best teams out there.


kevinthejuice

I always saw it as a "my top teams at the moment". If you want win potential ESPN made something for that. Air force isn't bad tho. Be interesting to see how they play with a new defensive coordinator


zachpledger

I'm just a guy making a comment, but I think Nebraska is gonna put it together for 8 wins this season. And I am willing to make a $1 wager. ​ (that's not to say I think they are the 25th best team in the country though)


heavydhomie

Idk about rip apart Nebraska. They’d keep it within 1 score.


paulmatheyounger

Top half sure, South Carolina would lose though.


ROLL_TID3R

Look out for SC to exceed expectations this year. I’m not saying they’ll beat Kentucky or Florida but they might beat Kentucky and/or Florida. They were not good at all last year but they also had the water boy starting at QB.


Molson2871

>they also had the water boy starting at QB. Ah excuse me, he was the waterboy and a GA


ROLL_TID3R

You’re right. He was quite the productive team mate. Real shit though I think Spencer Rattler isn’t going to be under nearly as much pressure (just be a noticeable upgrade over the water boy GA and lead the team to a bowl game) and might surprise some people.


kywiking

And a WR for a few games also. 4 different QBs over the season to be honest I am quite excited to see what stability tools like under Beamer.


tjudge_12

No Michigan State?


iDildopolis

Yeah that’s bullshit to me as well.


ivanwarrior

I would be fine with that if it weren't for the inclusion of Nebraska at 25 lol


_Feagans

No BYU but has Nebraska


bearybear90

Oh man I was so shocked at seeing Miami I completely missed Nebraska


djowen68

I'm going to have Miami in my top 25 because of their talent level. Their blue chip ratio is over 50%, so they have a chance to put something together.


Low_Yield_Bonds

Miami should definitely be top 25, but at 4 is shockingly high


djowen68

Gonna be honest I didn't realize he had them at 4. That's a little much. I think I had them at 18 or something which I thought was bold lol.


Personal_Return4940

His coworker Collin apparently snorted even more cocaine than him because he had NU at 16 rather than 25. But he's accomplished his goal of getting clicks and comments I suppose. If he just made a conventional list with little variation from the experts, most people wouldn't care.


OmegaVizion

I actually won't be shocked if Nebraska ends up being decent this year. After all, last season they were a few butterflies flapping their wings in China away from ending up 9-3 instead of 3-9. But no, they absolutely do not belong anywhere in the Top 25.


djowen68

I have a feeling that Nebraska could be on the trajectory of: Lose Big > Lose Close (2021) > Win close (2022) > Win big (2023) Frost has consistently lost close games though, so he needs to prove he can win close.


estDivisionChamps

The West is solid though and Nebraska isn’t just going to convert every game. Last year Iowa: 10-4 Wisconsin: 9-4 Purdue: 9-4 Minnesota: 9-4 Nebraska isn’t just going to magically be better than all these.


kaisorsoze

Plus, they still have Scott Frost as their coach.


djowen68

Yeah I mean I'm really not trying to make any grand statements about them. There is a lot of parity in that division. I'm just saying it wouldn't surprise me if they find a way to win some close ones and take a step forward.


estDivisionChamps

If Northwestern ended 16th in an even year I wouldn’t be surprised.


BillBob13

Offseason National Champs yet again. Ya hate to see it


Frosty_Huskers07

Oh yeah! This is the year!


chrisncsu

Yes, let's all focus on Miami at 4 being too high and no one else in the top 10...


sneakypenguin94

It has to be either you guys or UNC apparently and it’s your turn this year! To be fair I am much more okay with this one than top 10 UNC last year


carlosdanger31

24th ranked Airforce


Galumpadump

Air Force will be solid this year.


_Feagans

What the selling point of AF? I see them sprinkled in a lot of rankings or lists


Idontevenusereddit

Jets are cool.


Hokie_Jayhawk

But have you seen Navy Flight School in Top Gun? Jets are cool, but it would be like if the Army had better battleships than the Navy.


PedanticBoutBaseball

Honestly running the triple helps a ton. For all of the service academies (plus georgia southern) they basically have a cycle of: Bad, absolute-trash tier team because guys (mostly the QB and OL) have to gel and get used to the style of offense Pain in the ass trap-game team because only 5/140 teams run it at any given time ( This is where they are 85% of the time as you usually have a mxi of expirienced OL and smart but unpectacular QBs) Legit top 25 threat because no one else runs your offense AND you have a truly exprienced team and/or QB that can actually pass a bit (This is where Army was last year, AF is this year and Navy was back in the day with Keenan Reynolds)


NewAltProfAccount

Watching a bad triple option team is like death by 1 million paper cuts. You teams is down 21 and they just keep running the ball and going 3 and out with -2 yards. I sat through one miserable season of this and it is literally the most painful thing to watch.


Tigercat92

I think I saw a post that they will be one of the teams that will be favored in all of their games so maybe he thinks they will be 12-0 or 11-1 at the end of the year. 🤷🏻‍♂️


Skyagunsta21

New Top Gun just dropped. Air Force national championship is confirmed


PhiloBlackCardinal

This is a great list in my unbiased opinion


poppatop

I agree, also unbiased-ly.


melikeybacon

I mostly agree with the rankings. The only one that sticks out to me is Miami at 4. What was he thinking? I'd say we're top 3, easy.


JEH-C

Nice, Miami @ A&M a top 5 matchup. College GameDay has no choice with the week 3 slate.


paradigm_x2

Miami won’t be top 5 in the actual poll. Top 15 maybe

I was being facetious.

No clue how he can put PSU at 16 and Nebraska at 25 while leaving MSU out completely. But then again he put Miami at 4 so he’s probably halfway through his 2nd bottle of whiskey

FriskyHippoSlayer

Coworker Collin is even more ridiculous. TCU at 22, but OkState at 36 and Baylor at 55, lmao.


bearybear90

How do you have TCU in the top 25


metzoforte1

I think Collin’s has a system that heavily weights returning production. TCU was a young team last year and returns many pieces, so it does well in that metric. But that system seems to ignore coaching changes which are even larger hits than returning production. Idk, maybe TCU will surprise everyone this year.

libsoutherner

Reminder that polls before week five of the season are stupid because they just generate completely unearned poll inertia based on preseason expectations for teams that could be absolutely baseless, like Miami in this poll. Nobody knows who the best teams are right now so ranking them is stupid. Just my two cents.


paradigm_x2

We all know that and all agree, but there’s nothing else to talk about lol

No one is complaining about Utah at #6. I'm pleasantly surprised.
