Preseason vs Final Ranking Anaylsis

Tasser 10 over at Bruin's Nation did an analysis of preseason rankings compared to final AP rankings at the end of the season. Tasser gathered information from 1993 and on. Here is some of the basic information he found...
  • Pac 10 predictions have not been accurate year to year
  • Oregon and Washington State have been consistently underrated
  • Michigan, Tennessee, Florida State, Texas and Notre Dame (NO, tell me it ain't so...) have been consistently overrated
  • There are 4 teams to be ranked in the preseason every year since 1993 but no team has finished ranked every year

Very interesting stuff... I would love to see how some of the other teams around the country fared.
