College Football Top 25 9/19

After three games, it's time to break out the first top 25 of the year. It's not great yet, but it's surprisingly accurate for just 3 games. Also, I swear this is not rigged, the math actually gives our number 1.

24 Florida Int'l 0 2 182.6 320.49
25 North Carolina 0 2 182.51 302.88

Stanford?! Really?! Stanford!! Watch the replay of what they did to Wake Forest tonight, or UCLA last week. Both solid teams, both destroyed. Also up top as expected are Alabama and Ohio State among others. Amazingly Virginia Tech is still at 17, so it's possible expectations weren't too wrong.
Where to other teams relevant to this blog place?

33 Iowa 2 1 153.29 25.43
41 Northwestern 3 0 114.88 18.04
107 Washington 1 2 22 38.21
442 Georgetown DC 2 1 0.42 0.3

A rough loss for Iowa tonight against Arizona knocked them out of the top 25. Northwestern is 3-0, but is gets burned by a weak early schedule, and a close Vandy game. Georgetown has already improved on last year's win total, but with a ranking lower than last season more wins might not come easily.
All this goes to prove two things. First, even after only 3 weeks the rankings are surprisingly good. Second, Stanford may be a team to watch for more than just a Pac-10 title this year.

  1. Austin,

    I cry FOUL... No Texas? Are you insane? And I really enjoyed the JAB at your Sister with Georgetown at 442.

    What is it they say? Statistics lie and liars use statistics? I can assure you smart (way smarter than myself) nephew.... I can use math for good AND evil. Step away from the the Dork side and put down the Pi.

    :)
