Staples talks about Sooners being No. 1, Notre Dame improved
— Staples said that Oklahoma is No. 1 for a reason. The Sooners bring a lot of talent and have an easy schedule. Although Staples said that the Big 12 is actually very good at the top this year. Texas A&M has its best team in years, and Texas will be back.
— Staples said that a lot of coaches don’t fill out their polls. The SIDs do. He said Air Force’s Troy Calhoun actually put a lot of work into it.
— Staples said Notre Dame could be very good this season.
— Staples said that the only problem Andrew Luck might have for wining the Heisman is that the winner has to come from a title contender.
