Also, this year's final USA TODAY coaches poll has the Badgers at No. 4.

Perhaps the sting of Saturday night still strikes you. Perhaps you need an early-week pick-me-up. Or perhaps you're just bored.

Either way, this year's slate of "way too early" polls for next year are out! And they're favorable to Wisconsin! Go crazy!

Jason McIntyre, The Big Lead: No. 3

Gary Parrish, CBSSports.com: No. 3
