I know this stuff works itself out in the end, but can someone explain how Michigan is #4? I have to guess their SOS is above 100.

Because they were ranked high pre-season and haven't lost.

Got it. Looking at their schedule, they only have two games against good opponents all year. PSU and OSU. I doubt their SOS will ever get in the top 40 or 50, but IF they win, they will make the Playoffs. Crazy. I like CBB where the NCAA can "reward" teams for weak schedules by giving them a high seeds. I know, I'm the first person to point out that the CFB system is not very good.

It’ll work itself out. They’ll lose a few games

#4 Michigan beat Maryland by 7 at home. #5 Clemson went to 2 overtimes at Wake Forest. #6 Oklahoma is on the verge of losing to Kansas State at home. #7 USC is down 7-3 to Oregon State at home, #8 Kentucky beat Northern Illinois by 8 at home.

Such a shame that so many of these teams won’t get the chance to play Georgia and Alabama in the CFP. Just have to wait a couple more years for that.

Wake is a top 20 team.

Georgia was within 1-2 possessions of a Kent State team they were favored by 45 over.  They were tied for chunks in the first half.

Bama squeaked by a Texas team who just lost to Texas Tech.

There is plenty of parity in college football.  So long as you aren’t named Notre Dame

Interesting the 'soon to be' Big XII on CBS's power ranking would have 6 teams in the top 25.

I think the Big XII has an advantage on the PAC12 going forward.

The badgers are so bad. Best off firing Chryst and promoting Leonard just so they don’t lose him.

I don't know much about college football but I haven't been impressed with the B14 West Division.

I’d fire Mertz first. He’s gonna get a wide receiver killed with his off target passes.

Have you ever seen a less explosive offense than the badgers and so predictable.   They have taken on the personality of their coach. 

They need a new coach but predict they are 3 more years of losing like this before it happens.

I think Iowa is working hard to secure that title.

How about Ha!

There is nothing to be impressed about.  Its a bunch of decent programs to some good programs with ceilings.

Wisconsin football and its fans have this stupid 90s mentality of ground and pound running football.  Its Chryst's philosophy, like Alvarez and Big Bret before.  Bunch of big linemen from Northern Wisconsin and find a good RB somewhere.  Unfortunately, in modern college football, speed kills and while his philosophy is good enough against the B10 West, they can't compete with the top teams.  Not having miserable QBs would help.

I think Chryst is a meathead who suits the Wisconsin football mentality, but I think they've seen his ceiling.  Wisconsin fans think they should be neck and neck with OSU, so that may be enough to can him.

I was told "Mertz is a sure 1st round draft pick."  I guess that's incorrect?  :)

Wisconsin was -7 and lost at home by 24. Now that's funny.

Their two wins are both at home against a pathetic New Mexico State team and a worse Illinois State team. That's funny, too.

Pepsi has a few billboards up around town with some football players on them.

And the 21 year ban from the Shoe Box is over, so that will help recruiting
