Navy won't start season in AP Top 25

0

Not a big surprise here. Despite appearing in a bunch of unofficial Top 25 lists this summer, Navy did not make the Associated Press’ preseason Top 25. The Midshipmen did receive 12 votes, which I guess makes them 38th overall.

Defending champion Alabama is first (yawn), while Ohio State is second (quiet yawn made while falling into semi-consciousness). Thankfully Boise State in 3rd place and TCU in 6th liven up a Top 10 full of predictable BCS powerhouses. Oh wait, you mean Nebraska’s back? That’s really zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Please, please, please let Boise or TCU (sorry, Air Force fans) throw a wrench into this coming bowl season.

In somewhat Navy-related news, former Mid coach Paul Johnson’s triple-option runnin’ Georgia Tech squad is ranked 16th.

Here’s the full list:

1. Alabama (54)
2. Ohio St. (3)
3. Boise St. (1)
4. Florida
5. Texas (1)
6. TCU
7. Oklahoma (1)
8. Nebraska
9. Iowa
10. Virginia Tech
11. Oregon
