DearAndy: Preseason rankings, head coach battle royal
Wednesday July 22nd, 2015

In this week’s #DearAndy, Andy Staples answers your questions from Twitter on…

• Why do people get so worked up about preseason rankings? Let’s just all admit that we love them. Why would we take away something we all love?

• Could Urban Meyer put all three Ohio State quarterbacks on the field at the same time and then move them around? Is that even legal?

• Who would win an ACC coaches battle royal? Larry Fedora has the physique, Mike London has the training and Bobby Petrino could have a trick up his sleeve, but there’s another clear favorite.

• Which SEC coach would win a barbecue competition? Can we make this happen at next year’s SEC Media Days? What about some skilled pitmasters from outside of the SEC?


• JOHNSON: 5 years after committing to USC, David Sills finally a college QB

• SCHNELL: Charlie Strong, Texas prepared to escape Big 12 mediocrity?

• STAPLES: How to handle Buckeyes’ QB battle? Opposing coaches weigh in
