Week 4 Top 25

If you’re looking for my comments about the LSU game, go here.


This week starts the transition to my objective computer system. A couple of disclaimers for those who may not remember. No one is being penalized for a win (if they move down after one), only for not accomplishing good wins. Ranking team A ahead of team B does not necessarily mean I think...

Today’s Big Games


Anyway, I did want to talk a little bit about the games that will be played. As I mentioned above, the conference games are the most important, and there is an SEC game between residents of the two “Columbias” (South Carolina and Missouri). I decided that instea...

I was getting really sick and tired of hearing how the Buckeyes supposedly "disrespected" OK last year when we sang our alma mater song "Carmen Ohio" after last year's win.  First, I believe the Buckeyes sing that song after every game, (or at least every win, but I think its every game).  Its been a tradition for awhile.  Secondly, I dont think it was meant to shove a win down the Sooners' throats either.  I dont recall any big time bravado (ie. we won we w...

I was in a hurry for last week’s rankings, so the numbers in parentheses refer to last year’s final ranking. The numbers in the middle for the top 25 are last week’s rating. Reasoning below.

2 Ohio St. 2 (3)

3 Oklahoma 4 (5)

LSU and Major SEC Games Week 1

Posted by theknightswhosay on September 4, 2017 at 8:10 PM Comments comments (1)

Strange times in the SEC, but I suppose it’s not too unusual that LSU and Alabama look good in the early going.

I’m still getting used to the absence of people like Les Miles, Steve Spurrier, and Mark Richt.


Less significantly, Hugh Freeze is gone now too. Based on recent developments, Kevin Sumlin may be on his way out as well. It’s a tough job and you expect turnover, but it’s getting to the point where you can barely get used to people.

Season Preview/Week 1 Top 25

Posted by theknightswhosay on August 31, 2017 at 9:40 PM Comments comments (6)

As always, my first few rankings will be subjective. In preseason this means I look at what I believe the potential of each team is rather than a mathematical assessment of results, which is my approach after the first few weeks (and a couple of weeks’ transition).


Of course there are several teams that could under some circumstance end up winning the whole thing, but some of those could also finish outside the top 20. I think the odds are against Alabama being the nat...

Another Tradition Lost; Week 1 Plans

Posted by theknightswhosay on August 27, 2017 at 7:10 PM Comments comments (5)

I usually try to use sports as an escape from real-world issues including personal problems and politics. I won’t bore you with any personal problems, but unfortunately politics has been intruding into college football and its traditions, so I feel obliged to talk about it.


LSU will have a new live tiger mascot to replace Mike VI, now known as Mike VII (he was previously known as Harvey w...
