Bulldogs still bite

Georgia remain atop the AP poll top-25 for week five despite a somewhat unimpressive victory over Kent State. They are closely followed by the usual suspects from the first few weeks of the season – Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan and Clemson.

After Oklahoma’s loss to Kansas State they slip down 12 places allowing other teams to creep up. USC move up a spot to sixth and Kentucky a spot to seventh. Tennessee leapfrogs Arkansas (lost to Texas A&M) and Oklahoma State (big win v some Arkansas Pine-Bluff) into eighth. The OK State Cowboys stay in ninth while North Carolina State rounds out our top ten.

No room for Kansas?

One of our gripes with this top-25 is that there is no room for Kansas, and we are not alone. There were a stream of tweets after the rankings were announced on Sunday asking why they were not included.

Danny Kanell questioned whether they would have been the top-15 if they were in the SEC.

Another CBS Sports writer, Shehan Jeyarajah said that it was not even close and that Kansas were wrongfully denied a place as a top 25 team this week.

Podcast host, Scott Chasen blames the university’s poor college football history as the reason for them being left out.

Whatever the reason, if Kansas keeps winning, they cannot keep being denied a spot as one of the official best 25 teams in the country. Kansas plays Iowa State next up and we are sure that they will finally crack the top-25 should they come away with a victory in that one.
