CFR's Week Six Power Rankings

It's like hitting a moving target.  Duck Hunt, for college football fans.

  1. Alabama
  2. LSU
  3. Oklahoma
  4. Missouri
  5. Penn State
  6. USC
  7. Georgia
  8. Texas
  9. Ohio State
  10. Texas Tech
  11. BYU
  12. Florida
  13. Kansas
  14. Utah
  15. Illinois
  16. USF
  17. North Carolina
  18. Georgia Tech
  19. Miami
  20. Boise State
Others: Cincinnati, Wisconsin, Oregon, California, Oklahoma State, Ball State, Tulsa, Wake Forest


Out: Maryland, Auburn, Fresno State

What makes this difficult is that a team like USC probably could be No. 3 or 4 on this list and likely destroy most of the solid foes on here, but it also gets throttled by Oregon State and similar teams.  I think USC would beat Penn State and probably handily, but there's a margin for punishing stupidity and for now I'm exercising it.

Also, I'm not liking where I put USF.


Missouri ... if they ever figure it out on defense that's a team that could be No. 1.  Or maybe it's the same Missouri from last year and the offense isn't really this much better.  We'll see when they play Texas, huh?

UPDATE: Aaaaaand I forgot Florida again this week.  I'm inserting them at No. 12.

Thursday Night Live Blog: Clemson at Wake Forest

Be sure to join me at the College Football FanHouse's Thursday Night college football live blog between Clemson and No. 21 Wake Forest.

ESPN's Thursday night game has been host to five consecutive upsets, and tonight could be a ridiculous sixth such event.

Week Five Saturday Open Thread

After last weekend we're now on upset alert at all times.  This is good and bad for college football but it certainly makes the more mundane games involving ranked teams more compelling, huh?

Anyway, feel free to leave comments and discuss things below.  Or, join myself and the College Football FanHouse crew at our weekly daylong Saturday live blog/chat.  Application below.  Happy Saturday!

Thursday Night Live Blog: Pittsburgh @ USF

It'll be hosted at the College Football FanHouse but you're all welcome to join me there.  Oregon State also visits Utah which should be of some interest, no?

Tony Barnhart: We've Already Got A Playoff

Duh.

The fact that a game like USC-Oregon State game can impact so many other schools has pushed television ratings higher and is keeping stadiums full. And as long as the TV ratings are high and the stadiums are full, there is no motivation (other than fan unrest) to go to a playoff of any kind.

And:

But if we had an eight-team playoff in place, that Oregon State victory would have barely created a ripple outside of the Pac-10.

Claiming a playoff won't dilute the regular season is an idiotic lie, and Barnhart accurately realizes it.

Thursday Night Live Blog: USC at Oregon State

The College Football FanHouse will be Live Blogging tonight's game between USC and Oregon State.

Thursday Night games are always fun, and USC/Oregon State battles have been compelling of late.  Last year was a sack fiesta, but Oregon State did upset USC in 2006 in Corvallis and nearly did so in the famous fog game in 2004 as well.

Feel free to join us by venturing into the chat application below (chat starts at 9 p.m. Eastern).

Week Four Saturday Open Thread

It's SEC Saturday, if you will.  LSU's trip to Auburn and Georgia's trip to Arizona State (its first regular season game outside the south in over 40 years) are grabbing the headlines but there's plenty more to discuss.

Be sure to leave comments below or join me at the College Football FanHouse and our daylong Live Blog.  Chat application below (starting at noon Eastern).

CFR's Week Three Power Rankings

As always, these are about relative positioning more than the generic process of swapping up and down on wins.  It's still early so I scratch my head at someone like Penn State who is doing great but remains unknown, and make others scratch their heads with my Oregon pick.  And I'm still not convinced Texas is truly a top 10 team but this is about the here and now, not what will happen later.

  1. USC
  2. Oklahoma
  3. Florida
  4. LSU
  5. Missouri
  6. Georgia
  7. Oregon
  8. Texas Tech
  9. Texas
  10. Penn State
  11. Alabama
  12. Wake Forest
  13. Ohio State
  14. BYU
  15. USF
Others: Kansas, Auburn, Wisconsin, Fresno State, ECU, Cal, Utah, Georgia Tech, Colorado
