Brad’s 2017 College Football Preview- Comprehensive Ranking

Every summer since 2007 I have created an intricate set of college football predictions for each upcoming season.  This year is no exception, as I will be using my blog over the next few weeks to publish my 11th annual college football preview guide.  Here are my rankings of teams 1-130 (UAB and Costal Carolina are new).  The column to the left of each team is my ranking of each squad, and the column to the right of each team is the experts ranking (average of Street & Smith, Mike Desimone, Athlon, ESPN FPI, College Football News, and Phil Steele) for that program.  You will soon see that the teams in which I have the biggest disparities with the experts will be featured in my surprise/disappointment lists in the upcoming days.
