A reminder: Today's post is brought to you by Kevin Willson. Please help out my cousin in his quest to have his commercial shown on the Super Bowl by voting! It's very funny. He's a young Christian filmmaker who devotes much of his time to filming missionary work all over the world. In the past years he has filmed missionary workers in very dangerous parts of Afghanistan and remote locations in China. Kevin also done documentary filmwork in South America highlighting groups who bring wheelchairs to some of the remote villages in the mountains of Peru. The Doritos Crash the Superbowl Contest goes along way in supporting his other filmmaking endeavors throughout the year! Thanks and spread the word and vote as often as you can! Remember, you can vote multiple times!

College Football Top 25 For 2012: An Early Look Toward Next Fall - SBNation.com

5. Florida St. Seminoles. Today's freshmen are tomorrow's sophomores, and while FSU will still be young enough to take a couple of accidental steps backwards, it is impossible to ignore the number of intriguing players they will have: ends Brandon Jenkins and Bjoern Wener, quarterback E.J. Manuel, young receivers Rashad Greene, Kenny Shaw, etc., a deep (and still young) offensive line, corners Greg Reid and Xavier Rhodes, etc. The Seminoles become bigger, faster and deeper each year.

18. Clemson Tigers. Oh, that defense. Andre Ellington is returning alongside quarterback Tajh Boyd and receiver Sammy Watkins, so Clemson should absolutely be a top-25 team because of the offense alone, but to say the least, they have a lot to prove on the defensive side of the ball. ESPN's Matt Millen and Robert Smith both named the Tigers a top-five team for 2012, and ... yeah. Can't agree with that.
