LONDON, ENGLAND - MARCH 01: 2012 mascots, Wenlock and Mandeville strike a pose outside the new London 2012 store during the London 2012 Shop Opening At Heathrow Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport on March 1, 2011 in London, England. (Photo by Julian Finney/Getty Images for LOCOG)
Are you wondering what that picture has to do with college football? Well actually, it has absolutely nothing at all. I simply looked up "2012" in the picture search and the mascots for the 2012 London Olympics popped up. Why must they always make Olympic mascots so abstract and unrealistic. If these creatures were real and competing in the Olympics, they would be awful because they have no depth perception. Their names are Wenlock and Mandeville if you were curious. They will be terrorizing your children's dreams this summer!
Preseason college football polls in January make about as much sense as Olympic mascots. That is why I utilized a very scientific method for determining my group of Top 25 teams. I call it "reverse alphabetical". That just happens to work out so that Wyoming ends up at the #1 spot. If you have a solid grasp of the alphabet and college football teams then you can probably figure the next 24 teams.
Texas State and UT-San Antonio haven't been added to the list of available teams yet. Technically they should have made the cut since they will be playing FBS football in the WAC starting this fall. This will be the only time this method is used to determine our vote.
