This past Saturday saw many of college football's best fall by the wayside as team after team after team began losing in the top 10. With those that fell from the top, there is now a new power structure atop the newly released BCS Standings and it's probably time that we clean off our glasses and re-examine what we're currently looking at. Here are a few observations:
If you wanted to make the case that after Saturday night, that Florida State should be ranked #1 in the country after they lambasted Clemson 51-14 in Death Valley...I might not agree, but I'd be willing to at least hear the argument.
Jameis Winston has definitely brought the swag back to Florida State. What up to Cam Newton.
If JAG is reading this, I want to issue a formal apology...if Ohio State runs the table and goes undefeated, I have a feeling they're going to be excluded from the big dance. I lied to you, I'm sorry.
Good God...is that the Missouri Tigers sitting there at #5? That's just plain unbelievable.
Just a prediction....there will be five undefeated teams at the end of the regular season. Alabama, Florida State, Oregon, Ohio State and Baylor. If that happened, even Condi and a 4-team playoff system couldn't save us from anarchy.
The ACC has as many teams in the top 15 (4) as the SEC. Interesting.
Northern Illinois is 7-0 and they're 18th in the country. Can we get those boys on a Thursday night game please?
Notre Dame isn't ranked. God bless America.
