Preview Magazine Picks Get Started

Sadly, Chris Rogers didn't make the cover.

Both Phil Steel and Athlon have kicked off online countdowns in anticipation of the release of their respective CFB annuals next month.

Steele is exhaustive as ever making the actual page of the team available in pdf format. Although he's only up to No. 30 there are already two entries of interest to us: Tennessee at No. 39 and Arkansas at No. 33, both of whom he includes in his "most improved" list. Both teams are bowl bound, he predicts.

Arkansas, he says, suffered greatly from injuries last year in addition to adjusting to their new coach (and the opprobrium that brought). They are facing a brutal gauntlet of in-conference opponents but they also have 18 returning starters - the most in the SEC. Tennessee's late season collapse overshadowed the actual power of it's defense and, Steele thinks, the offense can only get better.

Athlon is posting a countdown of its Top 25 and only providing a synopsis of what will be available in the magazine. Although it's just gotten to the Top Ten, there are no less than three SEC teams featured; LSU at No. 17, Georgia at No. 14 and Ole Miss at No. 10.

 

UPDATE 05/26: Dug up Steele's Alabama cover for this year's magazine.
