Baylor, Houston, TCU Ranked in the "Way Too Early Top 25" for 2016

Three Round-up teams made ESPN's Mark Schlabach's Way-Too-Early 2016 Top 25. Baylor comes in at number 3, behind Clemson and Alabama. Houston, fresh off a Peach Bowl win over Florida State, comes in at number 10. TCU, with substantial offensive losses checks in at number 19. 

The tradional power brokers, Texas and to a lesser extent Texas A&M, who allegedly run this state, are S.O.L. What a time to be alive.  

Bear in mind that these rankings don't totally encompass early NFL defections, some are still to come, most notably Round-up Defensive Player of the Year Andrew Billings from Baylor. Still, the Bears look loaded again and the #Htowntakeover is in fact real. After Garry Patterson's miracle work this year and retaining his coordinators it's hard to bet against the Horned Frogs.
