    Do you really think that Stanford will be as low as #5? They continue to beat up on the Pac 12, and if it weren’t for a brain fart against Utah, they might have been playing FSU for the National Championship, and last year’s Stanford defense would have shut them DOWN!!!! This year’s defense may not be quite as stout with their heart and soul leaving for the NFL, but I can’t help but think they should at least be #3! Oh, the bias of the SEC and East Coast!!! Will it ever end??? Here comes the Pacific Coast to show who rules in Football! Go Stanford! (and go Ducks and go Bruins and go Trojans, as long as you get lost in the Trees! haha!)

      Thanks for the comment. I love the rankings but I will be the first to tell you that they are guesswork at best. I think Stanford could go anywhere from #4 to about #7. I do like the hard nosed, old school football product they put on the field, with great defense and a solid running attack.
