Now that Spring Practice is basically over, I’d say it’s a good time check in on those Post Spring Top 25’s. Everyone is doing it, so we are going to create one here too.

Check out out some other Post Spring Top 25’s.

1) Ohio State

The best team from 2014, with the best coach in College Football, with some of the best talent in the country.

2) TCU

Trevone Boykin is the nation’s top returning quarterback. Ole Miss is still trying to figure out what TCU did to them in the Chick Fil A Bowl.

3) Alabama

I don’t see Alabama falling too far. Nick Saban recruits too well, but in recent years they’ve show a disturbing tendency to lose the big post season bowl game.

4) Baylor

Baylor’s offense can very difficult to deal with. Now if only Art Briles would only schedule someone out of conference. The Big 12 doesn’t need a conference title game, they need to schedule better OOC.

5) USC

Are the Trojans the next traditional power to make a comeback ala Florida State in 2013 and Ohio State in 2014? I love their offensive skill position talent.

6) Oregon

Oregon has another offense I really like, even with the departed Marcus Mariota. Are they good enough along the defensive line to handle a team like Ohio State?

7) Michigan State

Conner Cook is a solid QB, and Sparty can still play some defense even without DC Pat Narduzzi who is headed to Pittsburgh.

8) Clemson

Deshaun Watson is as gifted a quarterback as there in the college game if he can remain healthy. Clemson is at a point where year in and year they are a top 15 team.

9) UCLA

Jim Mora has rebuilt the Bruins into a very solid program. This is a young team with a lot potential.

10) Florida State

This won’t be the first time FSU has lost a ton of players to the NFL. Dalvin Cook is returning at RB, and he’s has a ton of ability.

11) Georgia

Georgia’s has talent up and down their roster . They usually do, but they usually lose 1 or 2 games a year they shouldn’t

12) Notre Dame

Brian Kelly has recruited well, and this year the Irish may be more equipped to make serious CFP run.

13) Arizona

The Wildcats are loaded on offense. Oregon may not be the best offense in the Pac 12 this year.

14) Auburn

I’m not quite sure why so many people have a team coming off a 5 loss season in their top 5. Can Will Muschamp turn a porous defense into a good one in his first year as DC?

15) Georgia Tech

Justin Thomas is an option wizard, but he lost a lot of skill position talent around him. The defense has a chance to be the best of the Paul Johnson era.

16) Boise State

No reason to think Boise State won’t continue to be the best Group of 5 school going. Just ask Arizona…

17) Arizona State

Todd Graham has turned Arizona State into one of the Pac 12’s better programs. This will be a team that will put up some points.

18) LSU

Anyone else wondering if LSU is slipping ever so slightly? The Tigers are good, but they are no longer a perennial top 10 team.

19) Wisconsin

My biggest concern for Wisconsin is head coach Paul Chryst. He never impressed me at Pittsburgh.

20) Stanford

Kevin Hogan is back at QB, and I love Stanford’s physical brand of football.

21) Mississippi State

Dak Prescott is one of the better QB’s in the SEC, but was 2014 the ceiling? They didn’t look good to end the season.

22) Oklahoma

I have to believe Bob Stoops is due for a rebound season after a very disappointing 2014 that ended in an embarrassing blowout bowl loss to Clemson.

23) Oklahoma State

Mike Gundy’s Cowboys started to put things together late in 2014. They return a large portion of their roster.

24) Louisville

Louisville even after losing 10 players to the NFL, might have the best defensive line you’ve never heard of.

25) Missouri

Gary Pinkel has made the transition from the Big 12 to the SEC without much difficulty. They’ve been the most consistent team in the SEC east the last two years.
