SI.com unveils its too-early Top 25 rankings for the 2016 college football season, led by Oklahoma and Alabama.
With spring practices in the books, we’re one step closer to the 2016 college football season. So what do we think we know now that we didn’t know before teams opened their off-season camps? I say think because it’s important to put a caveat on any insight gained from spring practices. If a quarterback looked impressive, is that indicative of a productive passing attack or a lousy secondary? The best we can do is try to find reasons to explain why what we see and hear during spring means or doesn’t mean anything.
That said, between the pieces returning from the 2015 season and some practicing and scrimmaging, teams are starting to show what they might look like this fall. We’ve still got four months until the season to debate, so let’s start projecting. Here is SI.com’s 2016 Post-Spring Top 25.
