The silly season: Magazine rankings
It's the silly season in the college sporting world, as most of us are or have taken to beaches, pools, lakes or mountains to get away from the world for a while, and if you're a college football fan, you've likely already begun, if not completed, your yearly collection of preseason magazines.
I'm at five myself and thought it would be fun to collect their preseason rankings this week for your enjoyment.
Today I'll list the five preseason rankings, with any notes about the Gamecocks included, then tomorrow and Thursday I'll do the offensive and defensive player and unit rankings, respectively.
Of the five magazines I surveyed -- Phil Steele, Athlon, Lindy's, The Sporting News and USA TODAY -- the Gamecocks are in the Top 10 in every poll but one (USA TODAY, which has USC a disappointing 21st).
Also, you may enjoy how little faith the preseason polls have in the team from the Upstate.
