The only thing I don't like about this poll is having Notre Dame at 23. Everybody else you can make a pretty strong argument for where they are positioned.

North Carolina in the Top 20???? Really??? Unbelievable.....not saying State should be up there but me thinks UNC should be down around us in the 30's

We actually came in at 43rd in votes, which I feel is way too low. But I agree that UNC is probably overrated considered what they lost on offense, but the way they've been getting hyped this offseason it really isn't a surprise to see them in the top 25.

USC getting 1 first place vote and Notre Dame even being in the top 50 is a little disturbing to me......and USF only getting 11 votes?!?!?! WTF?!?!?

You're not jealous. You're just a biased State fan ;) I honestly think it's fair. Anything top 15 i'd see your point but rankings are very subjective.

So UNC is 23 teams better than State? You feel comfortable saying that? I'd put us pretty much tied in the low 30's...even with UNC at 32 and State at 33.

Redunkulous :D

No. State should be higher not UNC being lower. And why do you say that? We had a better year and have a more talented team.

That is very much up for debate... UNC has a slight edge in the recruiting over the past 2 years, but you have no experience on the offensive side of the ball, whereas State should be one of the top offensives team in the ACC. But State is very suspect on defense, whereas UNC should be one of the top defensive teams in the ACC.

Both teams have strengths and weaknesses, and they should/are a lot more closely matched than what this preseason ranking suggest.
