    Not really NFL but my favorite NCAA source of info overload is Phil Steele's Magazine. Each year he does a countdown of some sort posting free pages on his website, this year it's a Top 40.

    http://www.philsteele.com/Blogs/2012/May12/DBMay14.html

    #40 Rutgers
    #39 Georgia Tech

    Oh but remember to buy the magazine when you see it on newsstands, it'll have a reference to a friend of the website....:D

    Is there a complete list or do I have to buy the magazine?

    Phil releases a page or two a day going up to the release of the magazine.

    Rids won't say it but I will. Rids' company is listed as being one of the ones that supplies info to Phil Steele. He's the token "Canadian Connection" or some crap.

    You're back, Flash. Glad to see it. Unless you are Rids evil twin or alter ego. ;)

    Missed a day.

    #30 Texas A&M
    #29 Auburn

    both of those are off the website already...

    Today's teams

    #28 Mississippi State
    #27 Tennesseee

    I disagree that these two will be up there at the end of it all but Phil's got a great track record in the past of picking teams to land in their spots.

    Today's blog from Phil Steele is a pretty cool idea for a stat. It's the percentage of yards from the 2011 season that are returning for the 2012 season.

    Today's Phil Steele's freebie is Oregon featuring 2013 CFL Draft prospect Boseko Lokombo as a starting LB for the Oregon Ducks. (ok the article doesn't feature him but it's one of the things I hunt for)

    Oh yeah if you do buy a Phil Steele's NCAA Preview mag on the newsstands be sure to check page 304...
