As Orson noted yesterday, Phil Steele has quietly emerged from his subterranean bunker believed to be located somewhere in the vicinity of Athens, Georgia to post an interesting look at the winning percentages of every FBS team's opponents going into 2008. I actually knew this about a week ago, but seeing as though my own Midshipmen are dead last in terms of opponents winning percentage, I decided to keep my mouth shut about it. One thing I will gladly promulgate to the world however is Phil's recent posting of the cover of the 2008 National Magazine, which will feature Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, Ohio State running back Chris "Beanie" Wells, and USC linebacker Brian Cushing.
Solid selection if you ask me. Also, Phil has up his Top 25 countdown, which promises to add another team down from 25 each day. Today's selection? Shady McCoy and Pitt checking in as his 25th ranked preseason team. Head over to PhilSteele.com for more, and be sure (really, like I actually have to remind you) to pick up his 328-page college football preseason guide when it hits stores in June. Basically, it's the best thing 8.95 plus tax could ever possibly purchase, and I'm not just saying this because his staff went out of their way last year to clear up a misunderstanding which had led me to believe he was blowing me off.
