College Football Rankings: Post-Week 1 Projections: Stanford No. 1, Boise No. 2

Do you think Matt Miller (2), Kellen Moore (11), Doug Martin (22), and Charles Leno (78) know something we don't know?

Earlier, I posted quite possibly the first-ever edition of the "Way Too Late Preseason Rankings and Projections," found here. You should check it out to see how things have changed over the season.

Week 1 has come and gone. Robert Griffin III impressed, the state of Oregon is depressed and Boise State's defense simply...pressed. The latest uniform incarnations featured Ghost Horses, Power Rangers, and the flag of Lord Baltimore.

Each week, we will look at how those projections have been affected by the previous weekend's results.

Throughout the year, I will generate two sets of rankings.

1. Based upon the original benchmark established in the preseason rankings. (Most human polls seem to work this way already.)

2. Based upon season-to-date team performance regardless of original preseason placement.

The Top 25 +1 rankings will be for everything before bowl games. These are NOT predictions for how the BCS system will rank these teams. This is my prediction of how I will rank them in December. BCS Bowls, the National Championship Game, and final top 10 projections appear at the end of each week's edition and are roughly based on the BCS system.

Remember to check back each week to compare your rankings with mine. Feel free to share your opinions for why your team should be ranked higher...or lower.
