Texas Regional Message Board
All week I've said to myself "I'm going to get on the Texas chat this week. I will do it!". But I got news on Friday that the Army needs to fill one more spot of the 4 Engineer's needed for the 4th ID stationed at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I'll try and get on next week. Oh and here's something you'll like, tex. I joined the WA. :P
Hey Marks my younger cousin is in Fort Carson and he's also an engineer you may run into him when you get their or you might have already seen him. Oh and how bout them Aggies #9 in the nation.
No, I think that's just for how many forum posts you make.
Since the most recently released AP Top 25 looks like some stupid non- Power 5 mess, I think I should make my own version the straighten out the errors the AP poll made.
AP Top 25: http://collegefootball.ap.org/poll
Behold! My College Football Top 25!
1: Ohio State: Ohio State looked better than they have in most of their games this season versus Maryland. Giving up 28 Points isn't exactly a big win, but it's big enough for Ohio State to stay #1 in this rank. AP Poll Rank: 1
2: Utah: What a legendary win against 23 California. Pretty nice win, Utes defense looked great, and I feel they should be rewarded way more than one spot for it. AP Poll Rank: 4
3: Baylor: Baylor absolutely smashed a winless Kansas Squad. They are not ranked. A win and good performance from Baylor, but it makes no sense to move them up in the ranks. We learned nothing from this game. AP Poll Rank: 2
4: Clemson: Clemson got a nice 43-24 Win over a once Ranked 2-4 Georgia Tech team. They had a nice performance. I think the AP Poll is strongly underrating the Clemson Tigers. AP Poll Rank: 5
5: Texas Christian: I understand moving down TCU. They didn't look at the top of their game, but rallied back in the 2nd half to win anyway. I think the win saves their spot, but they are at the very edge of my top 25. AP Poll Rank: 3
6: Louisiana State: This is one of the few spots I actually like where the AP Poll places them. LSU won over South Carolina, so I am leaving them put in my rankings. AP Poll Rank: 6
7: Florida: Florida dominated a 4-2 Missouri team with great offensive play and stellar defense. They looked like the best team in the country, but let's move them up a little and see if they improve. AP Poll Rank: 8
8: Michigan State: And Finally, we see Michigan State, the team that nearly lost to Rutgers because of one play. Michigan State looked like a wreck. They should remain here for now. AP Poll Rank: 7
9: Michigan: Obviously, I look like a idiot for this ranking, but they Shut out a Top 15 Squad. They honestly needed to be rewarded more for it, this being Michigan's third straight shutout. AP Poll Rank: 12
10: Texas A&M: I may be showing hate here for moving the good 'ol Aggies down 2 spots this week (sorry Gig em Aggies) but Texas A&M didn't play this week (literally, they didn't have a game) and several other teams looked better. AP Poll Rank: 9
11: Florida State: Florida State and Alabama were in my mind when I thought of this spot, and Florida State looked much more solid in there game than Alabama did in there's. AP Poll Rank: 11
12: Alabama: See #11 (Florida State). Alabama didn't perform as solidly as Florida State did, and that cost Alabama the 11th spot in my rankings. AP Poll Rank: 10
13: Stanford: We don't really have a sample size for Stanford this week, so Just keep them in a spot they will like. AP Poll Rank: 15
14: Ole Miss: Alright, making Ole Miss move up one spot for beating some lowly school that will never be good at football 52-3 Makes no sense. Similar to Baylor, we didn't learn anything from this matchup. AP Poll Rank: 13
15: Notre Dame: I had trouble choosing between Notre Dame and Oklahoma State for this spot, but looking at the box scores of there matchups, this became pretty easy: Oklahoma State went into OT, Notre Dame however, did not against one of the best Navy teams we have seen in years. AP Poll Rank: 14
16: Oklahoma State: I like where Oklahoma State was placed, the thing that kept them from being 15th or maybe even 14th was their game against West Virginia going into OT. AP Poll Rank: 16
17: California- Los Angeles (UCLA): No game played by UCLA, let's keep them as stagnant as possible. AP Poll Rank: 18
18: Iowa: Nice win after beating once ranked Wisconsin, and next we have the Illini of Illinois, which failed to survive Iowa- but only by 9. The win is enough to move Iowa up some, but I wouldn't consider them for the top 15 just yet. AP Poll Rank: 17
19: Penn State: Penn State, welcome to the top 25! Penn State is 5-1 despite a shaky O-Line. Hackenburg has looked nice, and they smashed a team that narrowly lost to Ohio State, the (now) 4-2 Indiana Hoosiers. AP Poll Rank: NR
20: Arizona: I didn't like my Options at #20, so I figured I should bring a new team into the Mix. Let's welcome 4-2 Arizona to the Top 25! Arizona has played Bad in Pac-12 Play but has been good otherwise. AP Poll Rank: NR
21: Texas Tech: I still don't really like what I have left, so let's place a new team in. I took a look, and I thought Texas Tech would be pretty good to put in. TT is 4-2, both losses coming in interconference play, but they were playing good teams. AP Poll Rank: NR
22: Duke: Duke just suffered their first loss- and are now 5-1, but this so should have happened last week. Let's put in Duke at #22, and I really like this spot. AP Poll Rank: 25
23: Northwestern N'Western Wildcat fans, feel very fortunate your team is Ranked right now. I am barely leaving them ranked. What a disappointing performance from Northwestern. They gave up 38 Points to a Michigan team and failed to score something for themselves. What a shame, they deserved to be a bit lower than their AP rank. AP Poll Rank: 20
24: Boise State: Perhaps the Biggest Question Mark was Moving Boise State up 4 spots for routing a 2-4 team that fell just short of a Bowl Game. Colorado State is clearly different from last year, and I don't think Boise State should be rewarded 4 Spots for beating them. AP Poll Rank: 21
25: Toledo: I was down to putting the next best Non Power 5 team here, and I was down to Toledo or Houston: Toledo had a bigger margin of victory, looked more impressive. Doesn't help that Houston gave up 27 to Southern Methodist. AP Poll Rank: 22
Notables removed from my Top 25: Oklahoma (19), Houston (24)
Teams in Bold are ranks I kept the same, and underlined picks are picks that I picked differently from the AP Poll.
The Heartland is today's featured region, are they the first of the Triumvirate to be featured?
Cool. yeah, the Aggies are playing better then everyone thought they would be. Which is great.
I ranked them #10 in my own top 25 poll a few posts up.
Well Bamas #10 so what's that tell you their partner. Lol
I made my own rankings. Bama is #12.
