Where is Penn State Ranked Around the College Football World?

Penn State Paterno FootballWhile most of us are starved for college football to start, especially in these final tortuous weeks, there is no shortage of pre-season coverage.  Just get on the web and you'll find blogs, articles, and plenty of pre-season rankings.  Now that the staple USA Today Pre-Season Top 25 and AP Top 25 polls are out, where does Penn State rank in some of the other fringe rankings?

This post has a summary of some of those other pre-season college football rankings out there, and the slots Penn State occupies.

I believe the best resource for any college football fan is the CollegeFootballNews.com site.  If you don't currently read this site, you need to check it out as it is filled with great stuff.  They perform a pre-season top 120 ranking with detailed analysis.  They have Penn State at #18.

Another site that covers lots of sports, but probably does its best work on college football is Athlon.  Their pre-season ranking has Penn State at #23.  Like most analysis you'll read, they state QB as the critical factor for the Nittany Lions.

The SportingNews.com also does a comprehensive top 100 ranking.  They aren't very bullish on Penn State, and have them at #32.

NationalChamps.net is a quirky site with some interesting features, and their pre-season rankings have the highest slot I found for Penn State - #13.

A place you normally won't looking for cutting-edge sports analysis (but is great for researching all kinds of other topics) is About.com.  However they have a college football analyst, and sure enough, he does a pre-season ranking.  Oh, and by the way, he's a PSU alum.  He has Jo Pa's group at #17.
