UofL Football | Do the Preseason Coaches Poll rankings make sense?

08/03/2017 05:36 PM

With the release of the Preseason USA Today Amway Coaches Poll on Thursday, the Atlantic Coast Conference received plenty of praise. Five ACC teams found themselves in the Top-25, including Louisville (Florida State, Clemson, Louisville, Miami and Virginia Tech). The only other conferences with five teams are the Big 12 and the Southeastern Conference, which has six.

Sports Night’s Andrew Chernoff discussed the rankings with 790KRD’s Howie Lindsey:

If the Cards hope to move up the rankings throughout the year, they need to have solid play from cornerback Jaire Alexander. Alexander, a preseason All-American, is coming off an impressive 2016 campaign, leading the team in interceptions with five. But, even he says there are still plenty of ways he can improve.

Expectations for Alexander:

One big question mark heading into the season is the Cards’ offensive line. After a struggle last season, the players are working this year on protecting when the quarterback is under center — something that hurt them at key times last year.
