Quick Thoughts:

  • Texas Longhorns are definitely back!
  • Fuck Notre Dame is 1-0 for beating Temple and they’re not back, but good for the AP Poll’s charity work of putting a dying kid at #24 until he finally succumbs to cancerous mediocrity.
  • Since Georgia Tech can’t hold a commanding lead, we have to deal with the idiocy of Tennessee being ranked for another week too. Really, they were dominating this game and couldn’t score in a 4v3 situation from inside the 5 after their collapse put them in 2OT.
  • Iowa handles the defending Mountain West runner-up, Northwestern nearly blows it against a Mountain West also-ran. One is actually within spitting distance of the Top 25, the other is Iowa. First Josey Jewell, now this. WHERE WILL THE IOWA DISRESPECT STOP.
  • Florida scores 3 points on offense and is still ranked. This makes a lot of sense.
  • With Maryland and Iowa moving up, along with Nebraska and Northwestern lurking, a few Week 2 road wins could vault 3 Big Ten teams into the Top 25. This might actually be a pretty good conference.
