Just looked at the ESPN FPI top 25, what a joke!!!!!!!

This is nothing but a self serving index to try and prop up the rankings of SEC teams. Does anyone really believe the SEC has 10 of the 25 best teams? Or that they have 6 of the best 11 teams? How is U5Cjr rated #19 and UVA is nowhere to be found? Does anyone outside of Bristol, CN and Alabama really believe Auburn is a top 10 team? College football really needs a true competitor to ABC/ESPN, CBS isn’t they promote one conference SEC, NBC isn’t they only promote one team Notre Dame, and FOX does little to promote college football and try an influence public opinion. ESPN has transformed into a propagandist network with no hint of objectivity and it’s time to call them what they’re, propagandist.

I'd write them a strongly worded letter.

You should never chalk up to conspiracy what you can reliably attribute to stupidity. Because stupidity is a much more powerful force in the course of human events.

Go for it, but a Monopoly does care what the public thinks.

Recruiting rankings are a portion of the formula

The SEC frequently has like 11 teams in the top 25 of the recruiting rankings every year so that's certainly propping them up a bit.

What's the significance of UVA and SC? Not following why UVA needs to be ranked.

the other 99% of the data available on the two teams rather than lazily looking at the 1%. Those teams played, what, 26 games last year? I guess technically 25 since both were involved in one of them. There's also things to consider such as overall talent (still a pretty big edge to SC), coaching (edge to Bronco and UVA), experience (returning production is fairly even according to Bill Connelly), etc.

Don't be lazy guys. Even one head to head game in the current year doesn't mean that team A is definitively better than team B (Pitt wasn't better than Clemson in 2016 nor was Cuse better in 2017). One head to head game in the previous year in the sport of college football where about 25% of the rosters turn over each season means even less. There's no way i can confidently say that UVA > SC in 2019. I think they have a better HC, but that's really it. Every other advantage still points to SC right now.

I actually agree with you. I'm not sure that I'd rank South Carolina in the top 25, but I don't have a problem with them being ranked ahead of UVA.

There aren't any networks that aren't anymore. True journalism is a disappearing occupation. Get paid or get 'hits' is the new bottom line.

They do the same every season and guess what? An eSECpn team didn't finish the year #1 two of the last three years. That's all I care about. Let em expand to 24 teams and occupy the entire top 25 except for the top spot. The entire country knows who belongs there.
