Coaches Poll

Week 11 was an exercise in horse-shoes and hand-grenades, as #1 Oregon nearly lost to California and #3 TCU got a major scare from San Diego St. In the end, though, our top 10 remained largely unchanged (aside from a couple ties) for the first time this season. Here’s to a more eventful Week 12.

EJSIC College Football Top 25 — Week 10

AP Poll

Coaches Poll

Week 10 was an eventful one as 8 teams from our top 25 lost. Most notably, week 10 left TCU very much in the title game picture after their throttling of #6 Utah. It also left Alabama all but eliminated following their inexplicable defeat at the hands of the Mad Palm Clappers. It will be very interesting to see how the BCS shakes out moving forward.

EJSIC College Football Top 25 — Week 9

AP Poll

Coaches Poll

#1 lives to fight another day as Oregon trounced USC over the weekend. Aside from the predictable fall from grace for Michigan State and Missouri on the road, the games were relatively uneventful in terms of the national title picture. 3 straight weeks of #1 falling on their ass kind of spoiled me I guess.

Down goes Bama, as the Old Ball Sack pulled a fast one on Slick Nick in Columbia. Joining Bama on the SEC downpike were the Florida Gators who figured out a way to out-fail The Hat at LSU. The aftermath has left us with a revamped top 10 and a new team at the top.

EJSIC College Football Top 25 — Week 5

AP Poll

Coaches Poll

The top six teams continued to excel on Saturday.  Three of the top ten are mid-majors, which is incredible in a sport dominated by tradition rich, money rich state universities.  Texas and Penn State received a total of zero votes, which is awesome.  Michigan State and Arizona moved up the most.  This week is an early-season rivalry week with Michigan State-Michigan, Florida State-Miami, Wisconsin-Minnesota, and Boise State-Toledo.  That last rivalry was a joke, but The Sensei will be in the high school bleachers above Boise’s blue turf on Saturday afternoon.  Here’s hoping for good potatoes and plenty of homely farmer girls.
