WHO IS THE NEW #1?

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Hours have already passed since the 2015 season was officially in the books. Time to kickoff the hype for 2016. Here is our preliminary Top 25 list:

OH LOOK OUT. THERE IS A HUGE BOTTLENECK 23-WAY TIE FOR FIRST PLACE.

1A) CLEMSON TIDE. Unstoppable last night, amirite?

1B) YOUR TEAM'S RECRUITING CLASS. You got that highly rated recruit that made it seem like he was going to your rival school on social media. Congratulations.

1C) YOUR CONFERENCE. Doesn't matter if your team is bad or not.

1E) DR PEPPER. Larry Culpepper finally reveals to Lil' Sweet that he is his biological father.

1F) THE NFL DE LOS ANGELES. Between the Rams, Bruins, Raiders, Trojans, Chargers, and Lakers you have to like Pat Hayden's chances

1G) TRUE DETECTIVE. Look for a big bounce-back after a disappointing season.

1H) CARGO SHORTS. Always a reliable pick, even though fashion hipsters will decry them.

1I) DANNY KANELL. You loathe him. He invokes a gag reflex when you think about him. Buy you're still talking about him, aren't you?

1J) BASELESS CHEST-THUMPING. The cornerstone of all Twitter bad-assery.

1K) YALE. They're smarter than everyone here and have the endowment to outbid Auburn and Ole Miss for blue chips.

1L) FREE LABOR. Everyone gets a raise! Except for the ​exceptional talent withstanding concussions and shredding their knees. America!

1M) BILOXI INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY SPONSORED BY WRANGLER. Have to admire the home run hire of head coach Brett Favre.

1N) BOB STOOPS. Successful enough to have a statue erected of himself in Norman*
*Statue is erected out of moldy, discarded casseroles.

1O) DONALD TRUMP. Sane and balanced by college football fan standards. Make Agricultural and Mechanical Great Again.

1P) GRANTLAND. Could 2016 finally be the breakout year for the program? No one makes a think piece on a FB dive look more Ivy Leaguey.

1Q) YOUR INSIGHTFUL OPINION. Share it with the world, please.

1R) SOMETHING SOMETHING AS STAR WARS CHARACTERS. It's the greatest thing in the whole universe so be sure to point out how something wholly unrelated to intergalactic warfare is just like your favorite spacebots.

1S) THE CITY OF TAMPA. $2.99 steak n' shrimp for all before and after next year's College Football Playoff Championship Game.

1T) BAGMEN STATE. Could be a down year for the Fightin' Bagmen with oil hovering around $30. Might be the time for prudence and rebuildin.... oh shit slush some funds we're gonna have to spend for this croot Barn's callin'

1U) MARK MAY'S DISDAIN. All the makings of a traditional power - smug, important, undefeated, and wildly hypocritical.

1V) THE NFL DRAFT. Siphons talent and eyeballs like a Motown record producer. The NY Jets fans? They're just #FSUTwitter with better living conditions and a tinge more literacy.

1W) BEING DISCIPLED BY MACK BROWN. The milk is always warm and the stories always have a winner (spoiler: it's Mack). Learn how Dubai is kind of like Arlington but with more taste.

1X) NORTH DAKOTA STATE. No, really. They would have beat your team this year. Especially A&M.


AND LAST BUT CERTAINLY AND MOST DEFINITELY LEAST

25A) TEXAS. Charlie Strong is ready to take the Longhorns back to near the top of the Big 12.

25B) TEXAS A&M. This is the year. We can feel it.
