I touched on this in another thread. We had a few differents threads yesterday on various top 25s. And, man, there was a lot of whining, crying and charges of bias and/or sensationalism. There was also a lot of great conversation, debate and insights. But, it did make me think. Everyone, including me, had a bone or more to pick with the rankings somewhere. But, at least these guys did rankings, and, in the case of Steele, you know he did a boat load of research. No way he doesnt know these teams better than most of us on this site. So, then, if we all know for sure where these rankings are stupid, biased and created just to start some buzz for their magazine, then what are our rankings? Lets hear them.
Its a Friday, it will be slow where I am working in advance of the holiday, the rankings because of the threads yesterday are on our mind. Let's do this. Show me your top 25. And lets freaking just shred each other. In the spirit, here's mine. This is the first time I've really put pen and paper to rankings. This is raw. Non binding. But forced to do a impromptu top 25 in a matter of minutes on the last Friday of May, here is what I got:
3 Ohio State
8 Virginia Tech
14 Georgia Tech
22 West Virginia
23 Oregon State
24 Florida State
There it is. I just reeled these off in a few minutes this morning. I cant worry about shuffling them around or editing. Gotta get ready for work. Crush these all you want. I'm sure I'll have buyers remorse on half in a matter of minutes. So, whats everybody else's top 25?
