    Tuitama at #13?!

    He's a good talent, but hardly Top 25. He's a product of the system. Spread and throw. Just like Holbrook. The numbers are a bit misleading.. IMO.

    I won't comment on DP, he needs to get his act together.

    When healthy Tui can be Top 25 talent. He's had so many concussions it's made it difficult for him. Actually Philly Sonny Dykes is in his second year and UOFA has only been running the spread for one year and two games. Tui's problem is that he's injury prone. He was highly touted coming out of HS. The talent is there. He has not lived up to his billing because of the injuries. Those numbers are quite a bit misleading. I do not know if I would have put Tui at #13. Somewhere between 15-20 though.

    Rock spoke well of him at Lobo talk tonight. Actually, he compared them a lot to tcu. We are going to have to play hard and error free to pull this one out I think!

    Go Lobos!

    He's a good player but leading your team to a winning record and a bowl win has to count for something. I get the feeling these rankings are less about "college accomplishments and value to their college team" and more about numbers and the flavor of the week.

    Actually these guys released this list before the season even started. Then they were upset when we didn't want to have Donovan or any of his teammates comment on why he was ranked so low in a preseason poll. Apparently not too many other schools thought highly enough of this expert's rankings to comment either.

    DP is way too low if this is a pre-season ranking. If we went with YTD ranking, I would agree. Brian Johnson of Utah is too low. The UTEP and Arizona QB's are both WAY too high.
