College Football Diversion

It is interesting to see how many of the teams in the pre-season poll are not in the top ten anymore.  See chart below.

In fact, some of them are not even ranked at all!  And notice that the current #1 and #3 teams (Missouri and Ohio State) are not even ranked.  Missouri did not even make the Top 25!

I think it demonstrates how weak is the foundation for determining teams’ worth.  Perhaps no rankings should come out at all until teams have played 1/2 of their conferecne schedules.
