Since my two favorite schools (in order) are Indiana State and Eastern Illinois I have decided to do my first annual Top 19 (next year it will be Top 20) for both conferences. I can't accurately do a top 25 for FCS since I honestly don't follow the other leagues that closely. I will update the rankings each week once the season begins. Feel free to discuss or criticize my rankings. Should be a fun season in both leagues and I am definitely excited for the season to begin.
