College Football Rankings 2011: Contenders and Pretenders in the Week 6 Top 25
I was watching one of the college football shows on ESPN yesterday and they were doing a segment where the two analysts, Danny Kanell and Tom Luginbill, drew a line to separate the true title contenders from the rest of the crowd.
Kanell drew his line after the Big 3 - LSU, Alabama and Oklahoma - and Luginbill had his down around near Oregon.
It got me to thinking, where would I draw my line?
There are still 13 undefeated teams left in the Top 25, and you can make a case that any team still ranked in the Top 15 has some type of chance to make it to the national title game depending on different wild scenarios, but where can we logically cut things off?
LSU, Alabama and Oklahoma are the three teams with an edge over every other team right now, but then you’ve also got Wisconsin out of the Big Ten, Stanford and Oregon out of the Pac-12, Clemson out of the ACC, Oklahoma State out of the Big 12, oh, and let’s not forget about Boise State.
You have to include all of those teams in the title hunt right now.
Teams will start getting knocked off as we get further into conference play, but right now, my list of title contenders would include LSU, Alabama, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Stanford, Boise State, Oklahoma State and Clemson.
Right now that’s the “Elite Eight” so to speak, but remember, things will change over the coming weeks.
