Combining the ahead-of-the-curve focus of Athlon Sports and the up-to-the-minute mission of TheInsiders.com, the two sports media companies are teaming up on a preseason Top 25 for the 2003 college football season.
The Athlon preseason Top 25 will be released on TheInsiders.com network in countdown fashion, starting with the No. 25 team on Monday, April 28, and working to No. 1 on Friday, May 30. A new team will be revealed each weekday on the way to No. 1. Strengths, weaknesses and schedules will be analyzed by Athlon Sports for each Top 25 team.
The Athlon / TheInsiders.com Top 25 can be viewed on the following page:

most respected sports preview publisher in the world. They will help our fans figure out what's going to happen before it happens. Meanwhile, we
will be telling them what is happening as it happens. What could be a better situation for the rabid college sports fan?"
