This may be the hardest piece to write each week. I have an opinion but it is compulsory in many ways. I believe in my ranking but I also know they only live for one week. Instead of attempting to justify this slop, I am just going to talk about it.
Best of a bad lot: Stanford is a the best 7-3 team. You could make an argument for Virginia Tech or Miami, but you would be wrong. I can hear you saying, “So, that makes them the eighth best team in the country right now?”
No, but their back-to-back offensive clinics against Oregon and USC gives them a seriously impressive streak.
If they polish off California and Notre Dame in the same fashion, they will definitely be the best 9-3 squad and deserving a ranking higher than No. 8.
Worst of the best: Boise State continues to excel in the not-that-impressive department. Raise your hand if you think the Broncos are the fourth, fifth, or sixth best team out there. (I have both hands up right now.)
And, yes, I think Oregon would dispatch of them at this point by more than seven points.
Uno: Does anyone else think it is weird that there are only two teams with only one loss?
