Ranking the Power 5 Football Conferences after Week 4 with Playoff Analysis

Let me point out on my philosophy on these rankings – your most recent  OOC results count a lot, and you’ll see me reference …

Wake Forest and Duke are both 4-0 at the same time and it’s never happened before.

Congrats to Duke and Wake Forest for a couple of nice 4-0 starts to the season. So nice it’s never happened before at the same time for both teams.  Dave Clawson and David Cutcliffe are in early contention along with Justin Fuente, and Dabo Swinney for ACC coach of the year. I’m hoping someone will …

Florida State’s season is in a heap of trouble.

A month ago Florida State entered the season as a national title contender. Even after the 24-7 loss to Alabama the Noles playoff hopes were not completely dashed. QB Deondre Francois suffered a season ending injury, a hurricane disjointed the schedule, and FSU went into their game with NC State having not played in a month. …

Virginia’s hammering of Boise State changes outlook for the season.

Each football weekend, I give you my reaction to handful of ACC games. I very rarely comment on games that I didn’t watch a good a portion of. Let me just say I wasn’t able to watch, but the final minutes of Virginia vs Boise State. I still had to write a game reaction, because …

Taking stock of NC State 3 games into the football season.

Good evening all you ACC football fans. As a NC State fan, I came into this season with aspirations of 9 or if the cards fell right, a 10 win season. After the first 3 weeks NC State is 2-1, not a bad record, but not ideal. NC State lost to South Carolina because, South …

Clemson looks scary good while flat trouncing Louisville.

All I could think of as I was watching Clemson flatten Louisville was this team might be better than last year’s national championship team. That is bad news for the rest of the ACC and the rest of the country. Clemson was Louisville’s Super Bowl this year. It was their biggest home game of the …

At 3-0, this Duke Football deserves more Blue Devil fans show up to their home games.

Duke played a sloppy game today against a bad Baylor team. They won 34-20, and moved to 3-0. Daniel Jones made some uncharacteristic mistakes at QB, and the secondary gave up a couple long TD passes. You never really felt Baylor would win the game though. A win is a win. They took care of …

The @ESPN FPI continues to be good for some laughs.

It’s become a yearly tradition here on the blog. We get a good laugh at how inaccurate ESPN’s FPI is as predictor and actual rankings system. We laughed in 2015 and we laughed in 2016.  Let’s laugh again in 2017, as Ohio State who I’d personally ranked around 12 or 13, are the number 1 team …
