A couple of weeks ago, the first USA Today/Coaches Poll came out and now, we've got the first AP College Football Pol
l of the season. Big shocker here--USC and Oklahoma are in the top two spots with Georgia up there at third. Poor LSU can't get any love or respect after winning part of the national title last year and start the season at fourth. LSU fans, I feel your pain. Back in '99 after UT won our national title, we didn't get to start out at number one either. At least LSU could be two, if not one, to start the defense of their part of the national title.
The Vols come in at number 14, which seems about right. We've got a lot of work left to do to get ready for that big season opener on September 5.
