Is it really a surprise?

NCAA Football: Central Michigan at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Senior College Football writer for ESPN, Mark "Marky Mark" Schlabach put out another one of his "Way-Too-Early" polls today and it featured 2 Big Ten schools in the top ten...and neither one of them is Michigan State.

You would think I would stop being surprised and I would get used to it, but I don't think I ever really do.

He lists Ohio State (the same Ohio State we beat in the Horseshoe with a back up QB) at number 9 after sending 12 players in the first 4 rounds of the draft and says that the team from Ann Arbor is deserving (HA!) of the number 3 spot on the list. Michigan State is given the 15 spot, right after Oklahoma State at 14 and Washington at 16.

These are preseason polls and the matter exactly zero percent, but it is making those games in East Lansing on October 29th and November 19th look even better.

Read the full rankings here.

PS: Let's take a moment of silence for Harbaugh Apologist, Peter Burns. He was rekt today by our very own Chris Vannini.

RIP, Petey.
