Some time ago, the AP Football poll used to mean something, as It used to be a significant factor in the BCS formula. Not anymore. Now the AP Football Poll means about as much as the AP Basketball poll, and is of no real consequence. It's still fun to see Michigan State up there to start the season, and the Spartans are at number 17, right below Notre Dame and right above Ohio State.
In regards to MSU, the AP poll didn't deviate too far from the general mindset of voters. State's been forecasted to be right in the mid-to-late teens range. MSU is one of four Big Ten teams in the AP Top 25, along with Nebraska (10), Wisconsin (11), and the aforementioned Buckeyes (18). The entirety of the poll can be found after the jump.
By the way, can you tell I'm desperate to write about football as evidence by a discussion of the AP Poll? I hope so.
