The updated post Spring Poll just released

Yes it will have a ton of misses both low and high (remember when the Orlando Sentinel rated Cuse #109 last year in May?)

College Football Rankings 2019 - CBS Sports 129

1. We are the highest rated NE Team (Penn State one spot below us)
2. Two of the lowest rated teams reside in the NE too (Yukon at #128 and Rutgirls at #121)
3. West Point is #19 (Which I am proud of them but realize they are over-ranked)

Our 2019 Season Opponents Bolded

1. Clemson
4. Notre Dame
15. Cuse
34. NCSt
38. BC
41. Duke
42. Pitt

46. UVA
50. GaTech
51. Wake Forest
54. The "U"
71. Maryland
72. VaTech
86. FSU (About 30-40 spots too low IMHO)
89. Western Michigan
106. UNC
119. Louisville (Way too low IMHO)

Liberty not in poll which is a mistake IIRC, they are out of their transitional status. If I had to hazard a guess they would be rated around 90-100.

Agree about a lot of your points. Especially UL. Yes, they went 2-10 last year. But the talent level of that team is still good, probably better than our talent.

They have won a lot of games in recent years.

Transitioning to a new coaching staff and new schemes is going to be tough. I am sure there will be culture shock coming from the environment the old staff promoted. But they aren't nearly that bad. And FSU still has top 30 talent right now...

It's unreal that we are at #15 and with our schedule, I see a top 10 if no major injuries hit this team.
Agreed we realistically should be favored in 10 of the games. However, until the first game we just don't know.

The funny thing is this feels like the 1990's again. Cuse is Top 20 and neck and neck with Penn State. While Rutgers sucks and UConn is totally irrelevant. Things are getting back to normal.

Army was so overrated in 2018. No wins vs. power conference teams and two wins vs. FCS teams. They will once again have two FCS teams on their schedule in 2019. Ridiculous.

A little harsh, I mean taking Oklahoma to OT in Norman isn't so bad. And what they did to Houston in that bowl game was almost criminal.

We'll know a lot in week 2. They won't be sneaking up on Michigan. I hope Army beats them.

As thrilled as I am to see SU at #15, the list seems a little lazy. Looks like they just took the end of 2018 poll, and then made a couple of small adjustments.

I get annoyed when people put Nebraska in their preseason Top 25. Feels like it's just because of their name. But 74?? Yeah, they're gonna be a lot better than that.

This just makes me realize if we were in the coastal we'd be the only ones stopping ourselves from the ACCCG.

Pitt's ACC schedule is
#46 UVA
@ #41 DUKE
- Syracuse -
#54 Miami
@ #50 GT
#106 UNC
@ #72 VT
#38 BC

Obviously these are according to CBS Sports but still, not having to face Clemson until December would be lovely.

Maybe the players seeing Clemson every year has shown them where they have to get too.

Insert catchy phrase about hottest fire or not killing myself here:

If my counting is right (questionable) over the last 4 recruiting classes the Penn State Nittany Child Abuse Enablers have 37 ESPN Top 300 recruits, and that talent has yielded a preseason team rank of 16.

Over our last 4 recruiting classes we have one (1) ESPN Top 300 recruit, and that talent has us ranked 15th preseason.

Just found this interesting.
