    Default 2017 Pre-Season Rankings

    I thought this would be good discussion. Stats came out with their pre-season 2017 title favorites.
    http://www.fcs.football/cfb/story.as...02553175498204

    In my opinion, I would say it would look something like his:
    1. NDSU
    2. JMU
    3. SDSU
    4. EWU
    5. SHSU
    6. Richmond
    7. UND
    8. Villanova

    Sleeper Team: Illinois St (returns a ton)

    While I think NDSU is again going to be the team to beat, I fully expect JMU to be #1 in any preseason poll.

    Why would anyone but JMU be #1, they are the champs till someone knocks them off.

    Well that Championship team is no more. So technically they are already knocked off and the evaluation is just about what teams will take the field next fall. Right?

    I agree with tjbison...especially since they are not decimated by graduation.

    It surely would make the voting easier for guys who have neither the time nor the inclination to perform full due diligence. They did lose Abdullah though. Do you think they have another weapon like that in the arsenal?

    Yeah, they got an FBS transfer... "two-time Georgia Tech leading rusher Marcus Marshall"...
