Texas A&M rises to top of 2013
preseason rankings on the
shoulders of Johnny Manziel

In college football, the only time it pays to be No. 1 in January is when the final polls of the season are released. But the Texas A&M Aggies are certainly abuzz, thanks to CBSSports.com’s Dennis Dodd. On Tuesday, Dodd released his 2013 preseason power poll. Never mind that the college football season doesn’t start for eight months. He has the Aggies as his No. 1 team. Yes, Texas A&M. Even though Alabama won the national title and proved that they reload in Tuscaloosa, not rebuild.

She looks quite real - and healthy.

As ESPN´s resident college football guru and former all star quarterback, Lee Corso, is fond of noting......."Not so fast, my friend."

Keep in mind Texas A&M´s "Johnny Football" will be without the services of last season´s 6´6" 310 pound left tackle, Luke Joeckel, the 2012 Outland Trophy Recipient in 2013.

We´ll see - I believe the Aggies host Bama in the second game of A&M´s upcoming season. And Bama is out for revenge after losing to A&M.

Only Notre Dame encourages its players to have mythical girlfriends. And when the truth leaks out, the ND athletic director tells the player not to comment on the matter. (That´s what the ND AD did on December 26 with Teo)

And, just a quick point - sports reporters, in 2008, acually went to Alaska to check out Sarah Palin´s sports history. How about that?? But they couldn´t bother to check for an obituary for the mythical girlfriend of Teo...

And Teo´s imaginary friend supposedly was a Stanford volleyball player...but he didn´t have time to meet her when ND played at Stanford in 2011. Hmmmmm.....

# 6...Guarantee it.....Not to minimize the butt kicking the Tide was on the wrong end of this year in Tuscaloosa, but there were other variables. The Tide was coming off a street fight game with LSU in Baton Rouge, where LSU is 30-1, the previous Saturday night - They won in the final seconds on... "the drive"...and were drained. Johnny football is beyond belief but so is a revenge ridden ´Bama squad with Nick and Kirby Smart at the helm. W/A ...Love A&M, but love the Tide more, and they will be #1 at year´s end, methinks....Aggie57 must be proud.

A&M played three really quality teams last season, and lost to two of them.

I have no doubt that A&M will be top 10 quality going in to next season. But I just don´t see them winning it all (even though I would be really happy if they did).

Ohio State and Notre Dame are both overrated as usual. Watching both of them get blown out in bowl games never get old.

It´s a fun read and a balanced analysis -- thank you, OP, for this one.

This kind of unfortunate and premature forecast is usually the KISS of DEATH,
though.
That was my first thought before reading it.
Think of the Sports Illustrated cover photo jinx.
And the six losses by USC, last year´s preseason number one. Talk about crash and burn.

Yet... No question A & M is pretty impressive.
Their dismantling of the Sooners in the Cotton Bowl after a holiday layoff...
looked pretty easy due to a very strong team overall on offense and defense.
A & M toyed with ´em. Who´d a thunk it?

The "Folk Hero" (Johnny Football) with
one more season like that last one may elevate to the next level...
"Folk Legend" ...

We will stay tuned on TV, for sure.
I may get to see him and his team play in person in an SEC game, too... Hope so.

Didn´t Dodd pick Southern Cal to be number 1 in 2012 led by their superstar QB Matt Barkley. Hah, how did the whole Sun Bowl go for you Trojans. Alabama is number 1.

Like the Bucks, but their 2013 schedule is weaker than their 2012 schedule. They need to learn to tackle before they really compete.

George H.W. Bush sure does get around. The former president was on hand Wednesday night when the new 2013-2014 Houston Texans Cheerleaders squad was announced — and he looked mighty pleased to be there. Bush, a close friend of Texans owner Bob McNair, sported a big grin as he presented each of the 35 cheerleaders with a red rose and thanked the squadmembers who visited him during his extended hospital stay late last year. Amid the almost surreal scene, observers didn´t know what to look at first — the scantily-clad cheerleaders with abs of steel

Roberts Elementary recently welcomed new neighbors when a parliament of baby owlets and their mom (or dad) nested up in a tree outside of the Texas Medical Center-area campus. They must have taken a few wrong turns on the way to nearby Rice University. CultureMap reader Annie Kansas brought her camera along in the carpool line and snapped a few portraits of the new family, which has been "creating lots of excitement" among teachers and students at the school.

In the not-so-distant past, the 1994 American-French film Stargate spawned a television series, comics and video games and ran over and over again on some network akin to Lifetime, on a kind of channel you tuned to when nothing better is on. Whether it´s the film´s provenance or the premise that deciphering symbols could connect seemingly dissimilar worlds, there´s a comparable element of connectivity and alignment — minus the science fiction, ancient Egypt component — when considering the proposition of the Texan-French Alliance for the Arts collaboration with Paris collective 9éme Concept.

As the world´s premier maker of luxury leather goods, Hermés creates treasured items from the most beautiful materials on earth. The art of craftsmanship remains the company hallmark. But for inspiration, designers retreat to a small space above the famed Hermés Paris flagship store on Faubourg Saint-Honoreè. Here, in what was once the office of Émile-Maurice Hermés, who headed the company from the 1920s until his death in 1951, they return to the past amid the many treasures the Hermés family collected over the years.

A lawsuit filed last week in Harris County claims the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People did not pay its bill at the downtown Houston Four Seasons Hotel for its 103rd Annual Convention in July. The hotel claims it is owed $99,500 for room, banquet and finance charges. The convention, most notably recognized by national media as the event where Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney drew loud boos for his health care reform views, was held July 11 at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
