Oklahoma was ranked 6th, close to being 5th, and they beat the 11th ranked team in the nation.

thats true. that was a hard one to choose. I went with Cal because they beat Oregon, while OK beat Missouri. it was really a toss up/ west coast bias.

It pisses me off that Boston College will be ranked 2nd. I understand they'll be ranked there and that's why you put them where they are but there is NO WAY that BC is the second best team in college football. Yes they're undefeated but who have they played. Wake Forest, NC State, GT, Army, UMass, Bowling Green and Notre Dame. Even USF beat WVU and Auburn. I guarantee that almost every team in the top ten would be undefeated with that schedule. The ACC is weak and I don't have respect for a championship contender from ther much like the Big East a couple of years ago. There is no way they are a better team than LSU, Oklahoma and Cal.

Michigan
10-13-2007, 11:24 PM
Michigan should crack the top 25 after 5 straight wins including today's blowout against Purdue and a win over a Penn State team that blew out Wisconsin today. Not saying they should be top 20, but they deserve some recognition for the way they've turned around their season after the disastrous start.

thanks for the wake forest love...i deff think we should be somewhere in the 20-25 range after thursday. We lost to BC after leading 14-0 and our QB went down in that game contributing to the loss of that game and then the next week versus nebraska when we had to use the back-up.

BC is a good team but not top 5 imo. They got a tough end of the schedule and I think its very possible for Wake to overtake them in the Atlantic.

Wow, you'd think if it was that easy, everyone would be doing that and WVU would be winless...

I think kwilk is a bit overconfident about WVU, but your argument is rather weak. West Virginia is a team that doesn't have a strong downfield passing attack, true. But they do have ways of hurting you through the air if you try to load up against the run; Darius Reynaud is fourth in the Big East in receiving yards, after all. The WVU defense is also improved. Most people speak as if they're still watching last year's unit, though.

I do agree with kwilk though in that I think WVU should be ranked over Cal at this point, because I think a home loss to an unranked Oregon State team means Cal is probably at the bottom of the top ten this week whereas WVU's only loss came against a team that's looking to be #3 in the nation. That's just the way the rankings play out. Right now I'd rank them...

1. Ohio State
2. Boston College
3. South Florida
4. LSU
5. Oklahoma
6. South Carolina
7. Oregon
8. West Virginia
9. California
10. Kentucky

It'd be close, but then Slaton and White would pull off their customary big game injuries.

That does annoy me at times, but at least WVU finally found an explosive back behind Slaton. And Jarrett Brown is certainly a capable player. Still, I'd prefer if this team's marquee players could stay a bit more healthy. Hopefully they'll be well rested after this bye week.

WVU never should have been in the top ten let alone top five everybody knows that.And USF isnt the third best team in the nation everyone knows that.
Who has WVU beat?So far the only team thats actually good that they've played is USF.And no sorry they're not the third best team in the country.And oh wait they lost to USF.
Cal so far has beat 2 ranked teams.Oregon and Tennesee.
Im sorry but beating teams like ECU,Syracuse,and Marshall just dont make you a great team.let alone a top ten team.

Who has Boston College beat that's any good? GTech? You can ask these questions about more than just WVU, and as I said, that's just how the rankings play out sometimes. You can make a valid argument that WVU began the season too high, and maybe that's something to be said about pre-season rankings, but their only loss has been to soon-to-be #3 South Florida. Everyone else they've beaten handily. Yes, Cal beat Oregon @ Oregon but, again, they just lost at home to an Oregon State team that didn't receive a single AP vote last week. Those kinds of losses will drop a team.

NGSeiler

Another thing is that Cal didnt even their starting QB play this game.

WVU didn't have their starting QB for an entire half against USF on the road, does that excuse work for them too?

Look, we're not going to know if WVU can beat stronger opponents until they play them. This looked to be a strong year for the Big East but Louisville and Rutgers have not had good showings. I personally would love to see WVU strengthen their out-of-conference schedule as well. I'm pretty sure they've started doing that, as I recall hearing something about a series with Auburn being in the works or already done for the future.

But until they do, then they're going to be in the top ten because of a high pre-season ranking and only one loss to a team ranked in the top three (or soon to be). Again, that's just the way the rankings work. Based on how many high teams we've seen go down this year, maybe there's a case to be made about the value of pre-season rankings.

While Cal did beat my Ducks at home, I think the majority of people who watched that game in it's entirety came away thinking that Oregon was just as good, if not the better overall team. Even perennial pac-10 hater Kirk Herbstreit said after the game that we should be ranked in the top 5. It pains me to think what might have been had we not come out throwing towards the end. We'd likely be sitting at #1 right now. And even despite the horrid playcalling in the fourth, we came within inches (and a horrible rule) of sending that game to OT. This has been a very frustrating season for the majority of ranked teams and their fans. I just don't see how anybody who's been following them could not have the Ducks in their top 5 at this point.

I think in a year like this, personal opinion might actually be better than than the Rankings...I think most people realize LSU is better than South Florida and Boston College, but the Rankings won't reflect that.

...okay, but I either don't see your point or simply don't agree with it. Again, Cal just lost at home to an unranked Oregon State. That should drop them, IMO. It certainly dropped other teams when they had similar losses.

WVU certainly lacks a "signature win" but they also lack such a devastating loss as well, since again, their only loss has come at the hands of what looks to be the third ranked team in college football. That's not to say I think USF is the third best team, but the bottom line is that's where they will likely be ranked.

I just don't think a close win against Oregon and a win against Tennessee is enough to prevent Cal from dropping to the bottom of the top ten after a loss at home to OSU. Maybe I'm wrong though, I guess we'll see in the next day or two.

bearsfan_51

Ok well first of all I fully recognize that I base my rankings entirely off of resume, not off of hype or potential.

That said, I STILL think ASU is getting no respect at all. How can you take a team that is undefeated, has beaten Colorado, Oregon State, and Stanford (ie: the teams that beat Oklahoma, Cal, and USC) and give them no bump at all? It makes no sense to me. What has Boston College done to be top 5 that ASU hasn't?

Anyway...here is my top 25.

1)Ohio State
2)South Florida
3)Arizona State
4)Boston College
5)LSU

Perhaps. But Ohio State IMO is the superior team and have done nothing to not show that, as opposed to teams like Oklahoma, USC, etc., that have all lost. Ohio State will be tested the last four weeks of the season. It'll be really interesting to see if they run the gauntlet.

Everybody should remember that Cal lost a game without their starting QB playing.

I think in a year like this, personal opinion might actually be better than than the Rankings...I think most people realize LSU is better than South Florida and Boston College, but the Rankings won't reflect that.

My top 10 power rankings, not what is going to happen but what I think is the real order of how good these teams are.
1. OSU
2. LSU
3. Oregon
4. Kentucky
5. South Florida
6. South Carolina
7. Oklahoma
8. California
9. Boston College
10. Kansas


LSU is simply overrated. Have you checked their QB play. You are not a top 5 team with that kind of QB play. They are going to get beat again. Cal lost their game with their starting QB out for the game. Ohio St hasn't played anybody yet neither has Kansas. So I just don't see how you came up with these power rankings.

Who has Ohio St played = nobody. They have a ridiculously easy schedule and I'm a Big 10 fan.
You could be very right about Arizona St.

How does Kentucky fall after a victory over the #1 team in the country?

I suppose we'll see if they're deserving. They've got games @ PSU, vs. Illinois, @ Michigan coming up.

polls are stupid, just tools by the media used to overhype games. Ohio State might be the best team, but I think LSU and Florida are right there too..........but NO way are BC and USF top 5 teams. Just goes to show how much of a fallacy the polls are.

Much like Oklahoma and USF got a split for number 5 last week, I'd be willing to bet this week BC and USF will split, or at least be really close to each other.

It pisses me off that Boston College will be ranked 2nd. I understand they'll be ranked there and that's why you put them where they are but there is NO WAY that BC is the second best team in college football. Yes they're undefeated but who have they played. Wake Forest, NC State, GT, Army, UMass, Bowling Green and Notre Dame. Even USF beat WVU and Auburn. I guarantee that almost every team in the top ten would be undefeated with that schedule. The ACC is weak and I don't have respect for a championship contender from ther much like the Big East a couple of years ago. There is no way they are a better team than LSU, Oklahoma and Cal.


They havent been upset, which is hard to say for just about every other team that was in contention 3 weeks ago, they will show the world how good they are next thursday.

This is true...and it really brings out the flaw in preseason polls. You can bet if OSU wasn't ranked so high to begin with SF would be ahead of them right now. But the last 5 weeks of the season, Michigan St., Penn St., Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan. All 5 of those teams are currently 5-2 and have been ranked at some point this season. If OSU somehow manages to go undefeated through that stretch than they certainly deserve to be #1.

Ok well first of all I fully recognize that I base my rankings entirely off of resume, not off of hype or potential.

That said, I STILL think ASU is getting no respect at all. How can you take a team that is undefeated, has beaten Colorado, Oregon State, and Stanford (ie: the teams that beat Oklahoma, Cal, and USC) and give them no bump at all? It makes no sense to me. What has Boston College done to be top 5 that ASU hasn't?

Anyway...here is my top 25.

1)Ohio State
2)South Florida
3)Arizona State
4)Boston College
5)LSU
6)South Carolina
7)California
8)Oklahoma
9)Oregon
10)West Virginia
11)Kentucky
12)Kansas
13)Missouri
14)Florida
15)Auburn
16)USC
17)Virginia Tech
18)Cincinnatti
19)Florida State
20)Virginia
21)Hawaii
22)Georgia
23)Tennessee
24)Kansas State
25)Illinois/Michigan/Penn State

Thank you for giving ASU the repsect they deserve. Washington, OSU's toughest team, was dismantled by ASU. We deserve at least top-10.
