Top 30 Countdown Begins!

Today’s blog will officially start the countdown of my top 30 teams that will appear in the magazine that will hit the news stands on June 7th which is just 20 DAYS AWAY!! Every day now thru June 15th, I will post both magazine pages on each team (for 24 hours only) and you can get an early look on how I breakdown your favorite team.

Today Air Force comes in at #30 with the Falcons returning 14 starters from last year’s 9-4 team. Since Troy Calhoun took over in 2007 Air Force has won at least 8 games every year and this year looks like Calhoun’s best team yet and they are capable of reaching DD wins. While they do face ND and Boise on the road and TCU at home, they should be favored in the other 9.

    If you look in the back of my magazine on Page 315, I have the Gators ranked #19 in my power poll which is all 9 sets of my power ratings combined into one. This is basically my computer’s ranking on talent. However, this ranking does not take into consideration schedule and they have to play one of the toughest in the country. Phil
