My NCAA Football Top 25

Posted on: September 2, 2008 1:42 am
 

Well the first week is down, there was a few upsets and some pretty good games. Here's how I see the top 25 stacking up now.

  1. Georgia
  2. USC
  3. Ohio State
  4. Missouri
  5. Florida
  6. Oklahoma
  7. LSU
  8. Texas
  9. West Virginia
  10. Auburn
  11. Kansas
  12. Wisconsin
  13. Texas Tech
  14. BYU
  15. Arizona State
  16. Alabama
  17. Oregon
  18. Penn State
  19. South Florida
  20. Wake Forest
  21. Fresno State
  22. Utah
  23. South Carolina
  24. East Carolina
  25. Illinois

That's how I see it. I started a blog about an hour and a half ago, didn't save it or anything and was doing an in depth look at every team that I have in this top 25 before my computer crashed. So if I get the heart to try it again I might add to this, but until then Alabama is the most impressive team. The Tide absolutely smoked the #9 ranked Clemson Tigers.

Speaking of Tigers, Missouri played a really good game against Illinois and Chase Daniel lived up to some of his heisman hype throwing for 323 yards and 3 touchdowns. Maybe the most stunning stat from that game was Juice Williams throwing for 451 yards and 5 touchdowns.

USC looked dominant as ever against Virginia and now they have a week off before their showdown at the Rose Bowl with Ohio State. The biggest question for the Buckeyes so far is what's wrong with Beanie Wells' foot/ankle?

The upsets from last week aside from the Alabama/Clemson game came from East Carolina as they blocked a punt and returned for a touchdown with just over 3 mins left to beat Virginia Tech. UCLA needed overtime to complete the upset of Tennessee in what was a very sloppy Monday night showdown between the Bruins and Vols. Bowling Green upset the Pitt Panthers and Mark May is still crying after he predicted them to take the Big East.

Upset watch this week: (8) West Virginia at (24) East Carolina. The Pirates snuck up on the Hokies and took down a front runner in the ACC, now can they build on that momentum and take down the big team from the Big East? Cincinnati at (6) Oklahoma. The Bearcats have a good leader in QB Dustin Grutza, but will that be enough to take down the Sooners?

Well that's it for now, give me some feedback and let me know what you think!

My NCAA Football Top 25

What?!  No love for my Hawkeyes?!  Did you not see how we dismantled the mighty Maine Black Bears 46-3?  Yes those might Maine Black Bears of the Colonial Athletic Association. 

I fully expect to see my Hawkeyes break your top 25 after we slaughter Florida International tomorrow.  Florida International is easily the 10th or so best college football team....in the state of Florida.

I'm sensing some PSU bias here - you have to hate on the one Big Ten team that you should fear the most - the mighty mighty Hawkeyes!

LMAO - I couldn't even write this with a straight face.  Hope your own your way back to the states.  Take it easy bro!!

I will agree that Georgia got shafted in the rankings this week. Yes Chase Daniels did everything he has been getting the hype about but you cannot overlook the fact that Juice Williams through for 400 some yds and 5 tds? As compared to last year that would've been him running half of those yards.

  1. Georgia
  2. Ohio State- I've flopped back and forth in regards to this due to the fact that Wells is down  
  3. USC
  4. Missouri
  5. Florida
  6. Oklahoma
  7. LSU
  8. Texas
  9. West Virginia
  10. Auburn
  11. Kansas
  12. Wisconsin
  13. Texas Tech
  14. BYU
  15. Arizona State
  16. Alabama
  17. Oregon
  18. Penn State
  19. South Florida
  20. Wake Forest
  21. Fresno State
  22. Utah
  23. South Carolina
  24. East Carolina
  25. Illinois

I do agree with all the other positions you have on there. Although I'm a little worried about the upsets coming this weekend. However Illinois will be back in the top 20 not at 25 after this next win due to upsets.
