College Football Top 10

I’ve been thinking about releasing my college football top ten for a few years. This year, I am going to do it. Look for my top ten every week fr the rest of the season. I decided to wait until now because I think you need to give the teams a few weeks to see where the are. Now that October games are next on the schedule, it is time. I should mention while I believe in strength of schedule, I also believe in winning. Thus, if you keep winning, you’ll get my vote. However, if you play lousy teams, you will till be towards the bottom of the teams that are winning, so schedule does matter. Also, I will give the benefit of the doubt for teams from the mid-majors. As East Carolina showed, they can beat the big conferences and it is clear that most of¬† “the big conference teams” won’t go on the road to play them. That is the big conference teams fault as much, i not more so than the fault of the mid-majors, so they should be penalized for playing cupcakes instead of good mid-major schools. True, not all big conference teams are like this, but I’m not going to reward the ones that won’t go on the road to play the Boise States, BYUs, and Fresno States. Anyway, enough rambling, here is my first weekly top ten.

1. Oklahoma (4-0)
2. LSU (4-0)
3. Alabama (5-0)
4. Texas (4-0)
5. Brigham Young (4-0)
6. South Florida (5-0)
7. Missouri  (4-0)
8. Utah (5-0)
9. Texas Tech (4-0)
10. Vanderbilt (4-0)
