ESPN believes Alabama is the best team in college football.

The popular sports network dropped its preseason top-25 Tuesday night, and Nick Saban’s team came in at number one. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Oklahoma, Clemson, Georgia and Ohio State rounded out the top five. Wisconsin came in at 16th! You can check out the full preseason top-25 below.

I have no real issues with the top 25, and as I’ve said many different times, putting Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide in the top spot makes a hell of a lot of sense.

They’re defending national champions and you can safely assume they’re going to be great again in 2021.

What I have a problem with is Wisconsin being all the way down at 16. What the hell is that about? ESPN really believes we’re not even in the top 15?

Give me a break. There’s no situation where we’re not at least in the top 15, and that’s a worse case scenario.

We return the majority of our starters, Graham Mertz is primed and ready for another huge season and fans are eager to watch us dominate.

If you truly think Wisconsin is only the 16th best team in America, then you’re probably beyond saving.

Bet against us all you want. Trust me when I say I’m keeping receipts.
