I know its early but here is what I think the final Top 25 Final Rankings might look like. Thoughts?

1. Clemson/Bama

2. Clemson/Bama - Unless its a massive blowout, they will finish 1-2 respectively.

3. Stanford (12-2) - Should have been in the playoffs

4. Oklahoma (11-2) - Lost, and if Clemson beats Alabama or even plays very close they stay. If Clemson gets blown out I could see them drop to 5. I just hate OSU too much to cencede them being in the top 4.

5. OSU (12-1) - #$%$$%

6. Michigan St. (12-2) - Doesn't seem fair since they beat OSU but pollsters love them some OSU and I think OSU is a better team and wins at least 7 out of 10 times v MSU.

7. Iowa (12-2) - Only 2 losses to MSU and Stanford. Got smashed by Stanford but who else do you put here with the number 8, 9, 10, and potentially 11 team losing their bowl games?

8. Ole Miss (10-3) - Moving up because a lot of teams moving down, I dont think they deserve to be here but they will be.

9. Notre Dame (10-3) - Played bad in Fiesta but I am a little bias so I put them here right in front of Oregon (if they beat TCU) who probably has a better resume (if they beat TCU). Could flip flop ND and Oregon (If they beat TCU).

10. Oregon (10-3) - (If they beat TCU). Would move higher if they beat TCU with Boykin.

11. (10-3) - No reason they should jump into the top 10.

12. TCU (10-3) - Hard to put TCU below Baylor after TCU beat Baylor earlier.

13. Baylor (10-3)

14. Houston (13-1)

15. North Carolina (11-3)

16. Florida State (10-3) - Its hard not putting them lower.

17. Tennessee (9-4)- 4 losses by an average of 4 points, 2 of those losses @ Bama (by 5) and Oklahoma (by 7).

18. LSU (9-3)

19. Navy (10-2) - Could and should be ranked higher than LSU but I believe the SEC gets the nod every time.

20. Utah (10-3)

21. Ok State (10-3) - Most over rated team in the country all season.

22. Northwestern (10-3) - Second most over rated team in the country all season.

23. Wisconsin (10-3) - How did this team win 10 games?

24. Western Kentucky (12-2)

25. Georgia (10-3 after they beat PSU)

Thoughts? Opinions? Corrections? Rankings are hard to predict.

Hard to put UNC at 15 with a loss to South Carolina and got wrecked by a Baylor team that was playing a Wide Receiver at QB and didn't even try to pretend to throw the ball.

I believe Houston deserves to be ahead of us. I would put Oregon as well. they have beat a top 7 team we haven't. They beat Stanford. Oregon had major injuries too. I almost would put Baylor ahead of us, they only lost to TCU and OK because they were playing WR's as QB's. Baylor had injuries like us and suspensions. they lost their starting TE, multiple games for their stud DT, Coleman played with a hernia in the last 2 games and was irrelevant.

But, I can understand Baylor being behind us too. But, I believe Oregon and Houston are both more deserving. I don't believe we deserve to be a top 10 team ahead of those two teams.

Yeah I was pretty generous to ND.

Yeah, I just don't see it happening like that. Remember we dropped to 4 after getting bombed by Alabama. I just can't see us not falling a ways after getting whooped by OSU. If anybody without a ND bias watched the game it looked far worse than a 16 pt game. We just got pushed around in every single phase. Except punting like one poster said earlier.

I agree it was brutal watching that game. The game could have easily looked a lot worse on the scoreboard at the end.
 

GATTACA!

It's about to get gross

What?? I thought _________ looked like a top 10 team for sure! ;)



I agree with everything except I would swap Oklahoma and OSU. I think OSU is definitely better, they have one less loss, and it avoids the Osu/MSU awkwardness.

I think Skunkbear is going to finish ahead of us. To be fair, though, Harbaugh was also destroyed by OSU, worse than us, and at home.
