That made it worse.  Apparently I need to transcribe the list to get it to post readable.

AP Poll current Streaks:

AP Poll appearance streaks:
  • 164 Bama
  • 99 Ohio State
  • 53 Clemson
  • 33 Washington
  • 32 Wisconsin
  • 28 Oklahoma
  • 27 Auburn
  • 25 Penn State
  • 22 USC
  • 18 Miami, FL
FWIW:
  • Bama's streak of 164 consecutive poll appearances is #4 all-time but they will not be moving up anytime soon.  They need 45 more weeks of being ranked to catch #3 Florida's streak of 209 consecutive  poll appearances from 1990-2002.  They need 47 more weeks of being ranked to catch #2 FSU's streak of 211 consecutive poll appearances from 1989-2001.  They are not even half way to catching #1 Nebraska's streak of 348 consecutive poll appearances from 1981-2002.  
  • Ohio State's streak of 99 consecutive poll appearances is #19 all time and I believe that they could move as high as #13 this year by passing Ohio State (103 from 2004-2011), Bama (105 from 1991-1997), Miami, FL (107 from 1999-2006), KSU (108 from 1995-2001), UNL (112 from 1969-1977), and Michigan (114 from 1998-2005).  

Top-10 appearance streaks:
  • 44 Bama
  • 44 Clemson
  • 24 Wisconsin
  • 13 Georgia
  • 10 Oklahoma
  • 7 Auburn
  • 6 Ohio State
  • 4 Penn State
  • 3 UCF
  • 2 TCU
*The site claims that this is updated through August 20 but it obviously isn't because UCF and TCU are NOT ranked in the top-10 in the current poll.  The last two teams should be Miami, FL and Washington.  
FWIW:
  • Clemson's and Bama's streaks of 44 top-10 appearances ties them with Nebraska (1978-1981) for 31st all time but they could move up a lot this year.  45 would be good for 30th, 46 for 28th, 50 for 23rd, 51 for 20th, 52 for 19th, 54 for 18th, 55 for 15th, 56 for 14th, 58 for 13th.  

Top 5 appearance streaks:
  • 39 Bama
  • 7 Clemson
  • 7 Oklahoma
  • 3 Georgia
  • 3 Ohio State
*Wisconsin should be included instead of Oklahoma.
FWIW:
  • Bama's streak of 39 consecutive top-5 appearances is good for #9 all-time and with nine more they would move to #2 all-time.  They need 16 to catch #1 Miami's streak of 55 consecutive top-5 appearances from 2000-2003.  

Appearance at #1 streak:
  • 2 Bama
FWIW:
  • Bama's streak of two consecutive #1 appearances is good for about a 60-way tie for 135th but they could move up considerably this year.  13 more would get them into a seven-way tie for 6th all-time with themselves, tOSU, OU, UNL2x, and Army.

Good stuff.

I doubt Ohio State can pass Ohio State though.

Luckily, Frost gets to warm up with Akron and Colorado to get the kinks out

UGA plays 24 and 10 , and 26 and 27 if you count that far down.

A P5 team can start at 30 and go 12-1 and USUALLY make the playoffs.

I'm interested to see how FSU, Miami, and Purdue fare this year.  

I suspect Oklahoma is going to miss Mayfield (duh), he was really good.  These days Clemson gets penciled in near the top every year which is a testimony to their program how.

Usually the top 3 end up in the top 10, the other 7 end up in the top 20 save one bust, and then you have a mixture, with some team from the 10-20 range making the playoffs.




FSU and Miami were pretty bad, Purdue had their day in the sun.  OU didn't really miss Mayfield much.  UGA ended up playing 3 currently ranked teams, losing to one.

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.

I think LSU is in major trouble.  I had them #41 in my countdown.
On the other hand, I think Auburn will still be really good, but people around here seem to be down on them, based on the feedback I got about having them #4.

Yeah, anything can happen when the losing team puts up 40+ points.
My early thinking of "twelving"....

If we take the AP top 16 or so, teams in red did significantly worse than expected, and in green somewhat better.  My memory is that usually 3 of the top ten fade pretty significantly each year so this is right on target, so to speak.  The next 6 had 3 more who faded, that perhaps is a bit higher than normal.  Only ND did better than expected, though from 12 there isn't much room to do better.  Penn State did somewhat worse but could end up ranked.  Ergo, preseason polls aren't "useless", but they are of course not perfect either, nor are any of us.  The top three in a preseason poll almost always end up ranked in the top ten.
