Ten Things - Week Three

Posted By:Wes Mewbourne - Birmingham, AL

For years, the knock on the playoff system replacing the BCS was the
importance of the regular season.  “Every game count in the BCS”, was
the refrain.  Well, after three weeks worth of games, it seems that
some games may have taken on even MORE meaning.  The upset bug has
visited earlier than expected, and fairly frequently over the first
quarter of the season.  Let’s see who will become the cream that
rises, and who will be the ones left to pick up the pieces of broken
dreams in this week’s Ten Things…

The Top Fan's Top 25 - Week Three

Posted By:Brett Haynes - Greenville, SC

South Carolina and UCLA had big days Saturday as the Gamecocks took control of the SEC East with a bounce-back win over Georgia, and the Bruins picked up a resume-building road win in a drama-filled victory over Texas in Dallas....The Dawgs and Southern California had perhaps the worst day (along with VT) as these two CFP-contending squads took road losses that will seriously damper any thoughts at making the inaugural playoff. 


ACC teams stormed the field twice yesterday, but overall, it wasn't a great day for the league. Yes, Boston College upset USC in Bean Town, and Virginia upset Louisville in Charlottesville, causing fans to go berzerk at both stadiums. But for the conference, the Louisville loss knocks one ACC team from the AP Top 25, and Virginia Tech's loss to East Carolina made for a second ACC team being bumped from the rankings this week. Only FSU, North Carolina and Clemson remain ranked in the major polls, and with the Tar Heels unproven and Clemson set to visit Tallahassee this weekend, could the league have just one ranked team soon? Ouch.


Once again, the college football world left us with a lot to think about.. Here are my Top 25 teams following the games of week three.....

1. Florida State (2-0) - The defending national champions had the weekend off to prepare for Clemson (who also had the weekend off) in an Atlantic Division prime-time game this Saturday. Everyone knows the 'Noles have yet to show dominance so far this season.......

Week Three Predictions

Posted By:Brett Haynes - Greenville, SC

After a rough start to the season with a 9-6 record in week one, I bounced back last week to go 9-1, including picking the VT upset of Ohio State and the BYU beat down of Texas. Can I keep things on the up and up this week and stay in the hunt for the ever-so-prestigious Fans25 Pick'em Championship? Only time will tell!


Here are my predictions for the games of week three.....

Ten Things - Week Two

Posted By:Wes Mewbourne - Birmingham, AL

With the added focus on marquee nonconference games in Week 1, there is a tendency to view Week 2 as a huge letdown (just look at the ridiculous number of Power 5 teams vs non-Power 5 and FCS teams).  In the words of the beloved Gameday curmudgeon himself, not so fast my friend!  Between the few games that had a margin of victory less than 14, the fearless leader of the NCAA showing once again how arbitrary he can be, and a College Football Playoff committee member engaging officials mid-game, we were never at a loss for water cooler ammunition.  Once again, we take a look at the week that was in Ten Things.
