Please forgive, but this was done in an sleep-deprived haze. I know something is going to be wrong. Tell me about it.

Comments

  1. Oregon has to be above USC. And did you watch USC this weekend? They are not deserving of a move up, regardless of who lost ahead of them. This is a team in regression.

  2. Oregon crushed USC just last week. No way should they drop lower, especially when USC looked terrible last Sat.

    Also, TCU > Boise.

    Props to including Navy.

  3. Yes, the Oregon ranking is my bad. I had them higher than USC earlier, not sure how that one got by. Oregon is still the better team. I’ll fix that.

    @sM – I thought about TCU going higher, but Boise does have a victory of a formerly top-ten team. What does TCU have over that? I know Boise has struggled with lesser teams. Is that your reasoning?

  4. Playoffs

  5. eK – just my opinion, here’s my comparison:

    Against ranked teams: TCU 2-0, Boise 1-0 (and TCU will likely go to 3-0 this weekend)

    Against teams with winning records: TCU 4-0, Boise 2-0

    Avg. margin of victory: TCU 26.2, Boise 25.4 (especially relevant given the two facts above)

    Red zone success: TCU 93%, Boise 84%

    While I’m cherrypicking stats – Largest home crowd of season: TCU 37K, Boise 32K

  6. @sM – compelling arguments, all of them. I shall take them into consideration.

    And LOL @ their largest home crowds.
