Week 4 Rewind: Top 25 blowouts do little to spice up light slate

By Chip Patterson | Staff Writer

Every Sunday, Tom Fornelli and I sit down to review the weekend that was in college football for the rewind edition of the Eye On College Football Podcast.

This week we do our best to make chicken salad out of the chicken spit, looking for relevant takeaways from a Week 4 short on intriguing matchups but long on blowouts and a few near-upsets that turned heads for a quarter (or three).

After running through Michigan-UConn, Florida -Tennessee and Notre Dame-Michigan State, Tom and I discuss the momentum building behind Oregon as the nation's No. 1 team. How much do style points matter? We polls make up 2/3 of the BCS formula and public opinion has proven to play a roll in the actions of voters. Does Alabama get discredited for an unimpressive, yet decided, 25-point victory over Colorado State?

We discuss wins for LSU and Georgia, looking ahead to their Week 5 cross-division showdown, Stanford's three good quarters against Arizona State, our budding infatuation with USC's defense and a buy/sell judgment on 4-0 Maryland. Also included in the podcast: Wisconsin's chances of knocking off Ohio State, Baylor putting up golf scores and clock-gate in Louisville's 72-0 rout of FIU.
