The Top Fan's Top 25 - Week Five

Posted By:Brett Haynes - Greenville, SC


The Top 25 was shaken up at the bottom end more so than the top end this week. Here are my Top 25 teams following the games of week five.....

 

1. Florida State (4-0) - After going down 24-7 early, FSU outscored NCSU 49-17 over the final three quarters to remain #1 and very much alive for the CFP and a legit shot at a repeat national title. The Seminoles' famous quarterback Jameis Winston said after the game, "with our defense, we ain't fixin' take no L." Well put....I guess.

Week Five Predictions

Posted By:Brett Haynes - Greenville, SC


There aren't any national rock-the-world type of Top 5 matchups this weekend, but there are still several good games. UCLA and Oklahoma State picked up nice wins last night, and this weekend Georgia-Tennessee and Florida State-NC State are just two of many exciting games. Sometimes the low key weekends end up being the best ones!

 

Here are my picks for the games of week five....

 

#1 Florida State (3-0) at NC State (4-0) - 3:30 - ABC regional - Can it happen again? Can NC State once again take down a Top 5 FSU team just as they have a few times before at Carter-Findley Stadium? The Wolfpack are 4-0 so far in 2014 and cannot wait to get their hands on the Seminoles. But they better be careful what they ask for. FSU has been getting raked over...

Ten Things - Week Four

Posted By:Wes Mewbourne - Birmingham, AL


The cupcakes are just about gone, and the meat of the schedule looms.  Week Four brought plenty of action, both on and off the field.  Top teams faltered, giving us a glimpse into just how difficult a time the College Football Playoff selection committee will have in a few months.  Entire conferences are shifting trajectories (with one division making history).  The inaugural year for the playoff has not lacked for drama.  Let’s take a look back at the week that was in this week’s Ten Things…

The Top Fan's Top 25 - Week Four

Posted By:Brett Haynes - Greenville, SC


It's been a very long time since I didn't finish one of these weekly articles, but I have come down with something here Sunday morning (in addition to a bad football hangover) and I am going to recover today. Apologies for a shortened Top 25 article....

 

Just because you do not care for a team, does not mean that you send them down the rankings. Therefore, although I am not pleased with how FSU has handled the whole Jameis Winston situation, I do know that their defense is really, really good. They held Clemson to 17 points and caused a huge red zone turnover with just under 2 minutes to go forcing OT. They are tough to leave at #1 because of the chaos surrounding Winston, but the fact is that this team has a stacked D and offensive weapons such as WR Rashad Greene (74-yard game-tying TD in the 4th quarter last night). For now, with a nasty defense - and Jameis set to return next week - I think FSU could still beat anyone in the country, so they remain my number one...

 

Oregon Squeaked by Washington State and Auburn won a nail-biter Thursday night at Kansas State, so neither of those make a push for FSU's top spot. Oklahoma and Alabama, next up, looked good against Florida and West Virginia, respectively. But enough for #1? Not yet.

 

Here are my Top 25 teams following the games of week 4.....
