With the 2012 college football season officially in the books following Alabama’s thorough thrashing of Notre Dame in the BCS national championship game at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, let’s take a look at a way-too-early potential Top 25 heading into next season.

With that in mind, let’s take a glance at how the National Football Post stacks up the Top 25 heading out of the title game in Miami. And, of course, these rankings ARE subject to change.
Note: Tomorrow at the NFP I will break down the Top 25 more in depth…
