FROM NECESSARY ROUGHNESS
College Football Polls are always a topic that is up for debate. However I am hearing many say that Penn State at 5 is overrated (Along with Ole Miss at #4). While this may be true, as Penn State has not played anyone who has really tested them as of yet, it's funny to hear this coming from writers who actually do the voting.
Overrated: No. 4 Ole Miss and No. 5 Penn State
It's not impossible the Rebels and/or Nittany Lions boast top five teams; I just don't know how one could tell. Ole Miss to date boasts blowouts of Memphis and Southeast Louisiana, while Penn State has beaten up on Akron, Syracuse and Temple. The only reason these teams remain ranked ahead of more accomplished teams like Cal and Miami is because they started that way.
Again, his opinion is not wrong because Penn State and Ole Miss have yet to prove how they match up against more formidable opponents. Penn State has that chance this week against Iowa.
My problem is that Mandel votes in the AP polls, which most agree should not start until week four or five. I would love to hear where he has Penn State and Ole Miss ranked.
