Week 7 - Disappointment

Firstly, sorry for the delay.  I thought official playoff ranks were out this week and wanted to contrast the Interenet's, but they actually aren't out for two weeks.

There was quite a shakeup last week. Lots of teams that The Internet expected a lot of just didn't quite make it. This has caused teams to rebunch and the separation to fade. Notre Dame keeps its rank, because The Internet does not see margin of wins, but they are teetering. UCF also was lucky to only drop one spot.

Most disappointing is Troy, who The Internet wanted me to pass on sincere apologies for them still being ranked. The problem is that Its system doesn't really have the space at the moment to properly deal with a loss that catastrophic. Indeed, that was a major upset. Prior to that win, Liberty was hanging around 1000, which is the roughly the base minimum for a D1 college football team, and had actually dipped into the 900s, which is FCS territory. The Internet will be spending the week deciding on how to deal with that.

Anyway, all of that aside, I'm really impressed with Alabama. The injury to Tua is big though, so it'll be interesting to see next week if they can maintain their level of excellence.

Here is the top 25 (the Internet wanted me to reduce it to a top 10, but since I spent all the damn time logging their results I'm going to paste it all):
