Can't really find much to quibble with, I'd have all three Big Ten West teams a touch higher, and I'm not sold on Texas being a top 25 team just yet.  But those are minor things.

but, another year with the new coach can be a huge improvement

Not sure how much more NU has to do to get some respect. They've won 10 games 3 times in the past 6 seasons. Of course, they have laid an egg in between a couple of those, but they've been in the postseason 3 years in a row and won two bowls in a row.

Honestly, it looks great. And for not only a preseason poll but a Coaches one, I'm doubly impressed. 
A little surprised there are zero votes for UNL or Tennessee yet. I don't think they are Top 30 teams, but they will probably finish in the Top 50 and helmets in that range tend to at least get a vote or two.

You have seen UNL and Tenn play lately, right?




I mean, that's what The Suck means and looks like.

Same, particularly with Nebraska considering the excitement over the new hire.

I’m high on Texas this year.  Finished 8-5, lost in OT to both Ok St and USC, and was leading Oklahoma with 6:00 left in the game.  If Ehlinger cuts some of his god-awful mistakes from last year I think they’ll be pretty tough.

Yeah, especially given that they've been basically 4th or 5th in the conference in recruiting for the past 4-5 years. They have the talent.
Add competent coaching to weak talent and you get 2017 Purdue finishing at 7-6. Add it to solid talent, particularly in the weaker B1G West, and Frost could turn that around quickly.

I wasn't even digging that deep into it.  I didn't have Nebraska anywhere near my top 25.  I'm just thinking how these preseason polls typically go, and you have a helmet program with a new head coach getting a lot of buzz.  Would have thought that would be good for a couple votes, no matter how they've recruited lately.

The type of player they will recruit now will e completely different than what they recruited under Riley.
I expect them to make a bowl game this season, but I don't see them challenging in the West for a few years.
