    Doing a poll now, for next season, is pretty meaningless, but that is a surprise at #1. I would have expected in the top 10 but not #1.

    Why not? They "rolled" the Tide, the eventual "champion". However didn't they lose some key players?

    Yep, lost a few.

    Starters:

    LT Luke Joeckel (junior)
    WR Ryan Swope
    WR Uzoma Nwachukwu
    RB Christine Michael
    C Patrick Lewis
    DE Damontre Moore (junior)
    LB Sean Porter
    ILB Jonathan Stewart
    P Ryan Epperson

    The rest are depth guys. The two Juniors are expected to be top 5 picks, so I can't blame them for going, but I sure wish they had stayed. The A&M recruiting class this year is the best in a long time, so I'm not too worried about it. I think 5 of the recruits are Juco transfers, which will help fill the holes. They have a great blocking TE recruit coming in that is in the size of Gronkowski, so I think he will help keep the pocket clean and slow down edge rushers.

    There are 3 big body WRs recruits too, and I expect at least one of them to be in the starting rotation. Ricky Seals-Jones is ranked as the #8 WR in the country on ESPN, so I hope he works out well. Seems like a good kid too.

    You can see the whole class here: http://espn.go.com/college-sports/football/recruiting/school/_/id/245/class/2013
