Bob Asmussen of Champaign News-Gazette Voted Michigan No. 1 in AP Poll

The Preseason AP Top 25 has been released. The bulk of the No.1 overall votes went to the presumed favorties: USC, Alabama and LSU. Illinois beat writer Bob Asmussen of the Champaign News-Gazette bucked convention and voted Michigan No. 1 overall. Two weeks until he looks like a moron, or an absolute genius.

Incidentally, Kyle Meinke of Ann Arbor.com was the other outlier, voting Oklahoma No. 1. He has Michigan No. 8.
