Consolidated Preseason NCAA Football Rankings

I have compiled NCAA football preseason rankings from a wide range of sources. I’m linking to each one and then including a chart at the bottom showing the rankings side by side and then put in an average ranking for each team and also and adjusted average. The adjusted average only includes the rankings from sources that actually included the team in their rankings. Rivals and Sports Illustrated are the only two sources I used that ranked all 120 teams. I took the top 70 from each of those sources and came up with 75 schools. For the rankings that didn’t have a school included, I gave the excluded schools a default ranking for that source that would be the next highest rank. So if a source only ranked their top 25 then the other 50 teams on my list that weren’t included automatically got the ranking of 26. That way the fact that they would impact the averages in comparison to one another. If you have any questions please feel free to ask in the comments section below.

A – Bleacher Report

B – ESPN’s Mark Schlabach

C – StatFox

D – Sports Illustrated

E & F – On Tap – E is Ryan and F is Justin.

  1. I like this.

  2. I was going to try to make it sortable… but I’m not smart enough to figure that out.

  3. Why do you rank Florida 4th?

  4. Because I hate florida. It was hard for me to rank them that high… though if you’d like me to put together a real argument for it I will, lol.

    • Bryan’s right… this is certainly going to be interesting… I was going to do it tonight, but that mock draft took longer than I thought it was going to and it’s now approaching 4am, so instead I’m going to go to sleep… I will however make it up to you guys by making a full post out of why florida won’t be as good as everyone thinks they will be.

  6. [...] Michael agrees that is a fair way to word it. The real reason I didn’t rank Florida higher in these rankings is because I’m stubborn, I’m biased, and I hate Florida. This sounded like a fun and [...]
