Dave Campbell's Preseason Power Poll


The new Dave Campbell's Texas Football preseason power rankings are out, and we sit at #2 behind the Aggies, but that will obviously change eventually once they do that thing that Aggies do and blow the hype. Can't argue with too much on here, even aggy being #1 (18 returning starters and a LOADED backfield), but I'd put SMU in front of dumpy Baylor of course, and by the end of the year, Texas will be better than those bitches too. Lyle and I ran down Baylor's schedule the other day, and we really couldn't see how they win more than 5 games, but we could be wrong. I hope not though. I don't care about our strength of schedule enough to cheer for Baylor. I'm sorry, but I can't pull for those people.

Gripe if you want about aggy being in the top spot, but by the end of the year, we will be right back where we belong in the top spot. I've seen them play defense, and they wont be able to stop anyone again this year and it will cost them a couple games at least. I mean, hell, they let Garrett Gilbert throw a TD against them last year AND they lost Von Miller. They might be even worse defensively, and, of course, they're Aggies so they'll blow it.

Once upon a time Dave Campbell's was the Holy Grail of Texas Football. With Al Gore's internet it is pretty worthless these days.

I beg to differ. I still get a hard on every summer when the mag comes out. There's no more comprehensive coverage, especially at the HS level, than that magazine.

Back in the day Dave Campbell's would have likely been the first time people read about up and coming high school players/recruits.

Now with rivals and other sites we know every thing about these kids, have seen video of them, etc.
