Interesting when compared to pre-season AP Poll

By: LA Duck

In the first AP poll in August...

LSU was picked 6th, Clemson #1, Alabama #2, Georgia #3

Oregon was predicted to end up 11th, actually ended up #5.

So you could say the ducks exceeded expectations.

Utah was predicted with a 14th finish, but ended up 16th--pretty close!

Missing the cut in the p12 from the preseason poll to now is Washington (11th), WSU (23rd), Stanford (25th).

When pre-season polls come out, they are fairly meaningless.

Their real worth comes after the season ends to see how close the predictions were, and who exceeded expectations, or perhaps didn't meet expectations.
