Today the preseason USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll was release and Brady Hoke’s Michigan Wolverines find themselves ranked 8th best in the land five spots ahead of their instate rivals MSU Spartans.
Granted, the purpose of these polls for many are to stir debate and truly don’t mean much in the grand scheme of things, yet they are fun to discuss.
Outside of Michigan at #8 and MSU at #13, two other Big Ten teams earn some preseason respect. Wisconsin allegedly is the 12th best team according to the coaches and Nebraska falls inline at #16.
Of course, the SEC owns half of the top 10 with LSU given the preseason title with the #1 spot followed by Nick Saban’s National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide.
