Oh How the Mighty Have Fallen: Week 5 AP Poll Released, Top 25 College Football Teams Update

After a weekend full of surprising games in college football, the AP Poll ranking the top 25 is finally out and it comes with several surprises.

I had a good laugh at the fact that LSU narrowly pulled out a victory over unranked and un-good Mississippi State, but somehow LSU managed to move up the rankings to number 4 overall.  I guess that goes to show that there are only 3 teams (Florida, Texas, Alabama) that are any good this year.

Another notable move on the top 25 was that of Ole Miss.  I started following this team this year after they had all that buzz last year, and I really just think they’re overrated.  And obviously so did the AP pollsters because Ole Miss dropped from #4 to #21 after their pretty big loss to South Carolina on Thursday.

Here’s the full Top 25.  There 1st place votes are in parenthesis, followed by their records, and the move from last week.

1. Florida (55) 4-0, —

2. Texas (1) 4-0, —

3. Alabama (4) 4-0, —

4. LSU 4-0, +3

5. Boise St. 4-0, +3

6. Virginia Tech 3-1, +5

7. Southern Cal 3-1, +5

8. Oklahoma 2-1, +2

9. Ohio St. 3-1, +4

10. Cincinnati 4-0, +4

11. TCU 3-0, +4

12. Houston 3-0, +5

13. Iowa 4-0, previously unranked

14. Oklahoma St. 3-1, +2

15. Penn St. 3-1, -10

16. Oregon 3-1, previously unranked

17. Miami 2-1, -8

College Football: It’s time.

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!

Because I know I am.  College Football is really the only sporting event I follow closely (Not the NFL, though, because they’re all overpaid and full of themselves.  These are college kids playing to have fun. For the most part).  I mean I watch the other stuff, but something about college football just makes me go crazy.  So for my first attempt at blogging about sports I’m going to post my thoughts about games from each week, as well as post a separate prediction post of each game scheduled that week.  We’ll see how it goes, but I’m pumped about it.  If anyone has any suggestions or requests, as always feel free to e-mail me at theconservativejournal@gmail.com.

For reasons stated below, I plan to follow these teams closely this year:

  • LSU (Can’t stand the school or the team, but they make for entertaining games)
  • Mississippie University (AKA Ole Miss.  Again, can’t stand the school or team, but I’ll be interested to see how they do after a season last year that exceeded all expectations.
  • Georgia (‘Dis my team)
  • Penn State (I just like this school for some reason)
  • University of Southern Mississippi (I have family that lives in the area and loves their team.  Don’t know toomuch about them other than their coach is from Oklahoma State.

So there’s the list for now, I’m sure it will change as the season actually get’s going.  Look for my first post about this weekend’s games either Sunday or Monday.  Also, I’m still trying to think of a catchy title for this miniseries.  I love those titles!

Who are you following closely this year?  Leave your comments below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Don’t forget to bookmark The Conservative Journal and sign up for the RSS Feed and the daily e-mail newsletter.
