  • Major Guest List News. Shout out to Richmond! The Spiders appear on all 5 polls helped in large part by their huge win over Duke last Monday. Good job by Richmond to avoid any emotional letdown this past weekend when they took care of Jacksonville, 12-6. Additionally, welcome back Penn State! Dropping Harvard in OT was just what the Nittany Lions needed to get back on the Big Board.

  • #2. I don't see much different between teams 2-5, but you have to slot them, so I put Syracuse as my #2 this week. Denver's been my #1 all year long, therefore I didn't see a 1 slot drop for ND to be too much of a punishment. Further, while I believe ND is a Final Four team, their wins so far have come against teams with a combined record of 7-16. Syracuse's wins have come against teams with a combined record of 13-17. Though I don't see much separating teams 2-5, I just found Syracuse's 3 Ws (UVA, Albany, and Army) to be a bit more impressive than ND's big win over Maryland, so that is why they are my number 2 this week.

  • Brown. I got nothing against Yale and they did nothing wrong, but I'm really impressed with Brown and felt they deserved the #4 spot this week. Yale has the marquee win, that's undeniable, nevertheless, Brown's offense is playing on another level right now and I think if those two met today, Brown would win. I just think the Bears are playing really well offensively and they are a very dangerous team. So I gave them the edge this week.

Bragging Rights.
