Bulldogs Claim #1 Spot in “AHN Top 10”


Mike Easterling – AHN Reporter

We had Georgia on our mind, the University of Georgia that is, when it came to choosing the top college football team in the land for the “AHN Top 10” preseason rankings.

The Bulldogs have a top quarterback, stellar running back and loads of confidence after finishing last season with a flourish.

1. Georgia: The Bulldogs have a star quarterback in the making in Matthew Stafford, an All-America candidate at tailback in Knowshon Moreno and momentum of a strong finish in 2007.

2. USC: The Trojans have continued to load up on talent since Pete Carroll arrived in Los Angeles and led the program to 11-win seasons for an NCAA record six straight years.

3. Ohio State: Running back Chris Wells is an All-America and Heisman candidate for the Buckeyes, who will again contend for a spot in the BCS title game.

4. Florida: Heisman Trophy quarterback Tim Tebow’s return is enough to make the Gators a BCS threat, even in the rugged SEC.< p>

5. Oklahoma: The defensive front four is rugged, and the offense is sparked by national 2007 passing efficiency leader Sam Bradford.

6. Missouri: Fifteen starters, including QB Chase Daniel, return for a team that may be the best in Tigers’ history.

7. West Virginia: Quarterback Patrick White, the Big East Offensive Player of the Year the past two years, is back to run the spread-option offense.

8. Clemson: With perhaps the deepest talent in the ACC it’s time for the Tigers to make a move under Tommy Bowden.

9. LSU: The defending national champion has quarterback concerns, and have been picked to finish behind Auburn in the SEC West, but the defending champion is still a Top 10 squad.

10. Texas: The Longhorns edge Auburn and Illinois for the final spot, mainly because of a talent-laden squad and a winning pedigree of 10 victories in each of the last seven seasons.
