Our Thoughts

Brian – TCU pulled their annual massive choke job right after a big win on Thursday night by losing to BYU and went from a top 10 team to a team out of my top 25 for good. I don’t care how many games they win this year or next or any year, they play a bad schedule and still manage to drop a couple of games per year. The Iowa Hawkeyes lost to the number one team in the country pretty soundly and fall five spots because of it. I think they may be one of the country’s best one-loss teams and with their schedule have a pretty good chance to finish the year with only the one blemish.

Matt – Again, I have no change in my top 6. I did adjust my 7-10 spots, moving Michigan up and dropping Georgia down a couple spots with their second straight week of boring football. I dropped Iowa and Va Tech way down, mainly because I think I had them overrated to begin with and they each got beat handily this past weekend. Boise State could be this year’s BCS buster. If they win the rest of their games I think they will have the opportunity to jump up to the #12 spot by the end of the year.

    Not sure how Michigan is ahead of Texas here, gentlemen. Given the two teams’ bodies of work, I think it’s hard to justify. Unless there’s a methodology at work here I’m not privvy too.

    Other than that – spot on.

    Good work, as always.

    You mean how Texas is ahead of Michigan?

    So Michigan’s big win is against Notre Dame, who should have lost to Michigan State, who lost to Illinois (the worst team in the Big 10). I just don’t count the Notre Dame win all that too highly.
