They’ve Earned It Rankings: Week 10 09

Given the anniversary of an important event as the wall of the Berlin Wall, the trivialness of college football had to wait a day.

Last week allowed fans to witness Oregon laying an egg at Stanford, which leads to one reason why I like observing PAC-10 football – the leader continues to be surprised! Then there’s Iowa who got their eyes scratched out by regular nemesis Northwestern. The sweater vest vies for some respect with an impressive road win, but is it enough to get into this elite ranking? Interestingly, most of the this week’s upward movement had more to do with team’s losing rather than top teams winning.

But wait – next week is big as most of the top teams take to the road, so this angle is interested in next weekend.

Up- Alabama, Florida, Georgia Tech, Texas, Cincinnati, TCU, Boise
Down- Oregon, Iowa
Out- LSU
Back – Houston

They’ve Earned It Top 10

  1. Alabama (9-0) Next: @ Mississippi State
  2. Florida (8-0) Next: @ South Carolina
  3. Georgia Tech (7-1) Next: @ Duke
  4. Cincinnati (8-0) Next: West Virginia
  5. Texas (8-0) Next: @ Baylor
  6. TCU (8-0) Next: Utah
  7. Houston (8-1) Next: @ UCF
  8. Iowa (9-0) Next: @ Ohio State
  9. Boise (8-0) Next: Idaho
  10. Oregon (7-1) Next: Arizona State

    • 3rd Stone,
      I’m with you. First of all, Bama or Florida will lose as they will play in the SEC title game. Interesting twist would be if Texas also lost … that would but the BCS committee in a pickle.

      In terms of respect, I would add TCU in with UC and Boise.

      Thanks for the comment.

    • Lester,
      I must admit that the city is enjoying football this season … plus add in the fact that the area is a hotbed for HS football.

      The last 4 games are UC’s toughest … one down, 3 to play.

      Thanks for commenting

    • Joe,
      Many thanks for the kind words. I too am unhappy with the pollsters …. way to much bias/favoritism.
